Everything that I need to know about Democracy, I learned in High School. Its true. By the time I started work at 14, I had a very good understanding about how democracy worked.
Now, this wasnt by sitting down in Civics Class. It wasnt by listening to a teacher instruct us. It wasnt by reading a book on politics. No. It was by my experiences on Student Council.
You know, it is absolutely amazing to me that I received such a profound understanding at such an early age. Even my father, a staunch liberal democrat, couldnt grasp his arms around my perception of it. He thought that they must have been teaching me some very strange things indeed. Yet, here we were. I would come home from school with a perception of governance that was alien to everything that he believed In.
Lets spend some time and take a look at what I learned.
Student Council was Comprised of the Most Popular Boys and Girls
While I cannot speak for every single school in the 1960s and 1970s, I can most certainly state that

Nice. I see you’ve put out some fresh bait to try and catch the elusive humblegunner.

Long, not perfect, but mostly very good. I will check out some of the author’s links.

I'll be adding this to my posts for a few days, once per thread I participate on.
Red Pill People > We Need to Know About
John Stossil intro explains: (first three people)
Larry Elder (Conservative talk show host - Los Angeles / back into the 80s [ I believe ] )
Jesse Lee Peterson (someone we've known about since before 2001)
These people are opening up the eyes of Blacks from within their ranks.
I think it's important we know who they are and promote them when we can.
I may be the last to know of them, but I don't want anyone else not to know, so here's the info.
Even if you knew about them before, this might be a decent resource for finding their work.
When you hit the links above, you'll see Google's information page.
You'll be able to learn more about them using links there.
Click on the VIDEO button at the top and you'll be taken to a list of their YouTube videos.
I'm sure I've left people out, so I'd appreciate folks mentioning them to me so I can add them to this short list.
That’s the top down view, and thank goodness for it. But, within each level of the Republic’s hierarchy, there’s a lot of democracy. For example, do you feel like you have significant access through your vote to the local school board? I didn’t. It was schemes, deals, and incrowds.
