Fleur de Lys on democracy not working

Things I ponder

From my how can anyone think democracy works...

Liberals manufacture crisis' and convince the masses that only they can solve the crisis. They are then elected to run the government. Here are some examples...

In 2007 the City of Raleigh, North Carolina found itself, as well as other large cities in the area, in the midst of a level 1 drought. At first the city asked for voluntary water conservation, then the city enacted mandatory water restrictions with a warning for first time abuse, Then a small fine was enacted for first time abusers, then the city increased fines for abusers no first time grace. The city was able to reduce its requirements by 20%. Although we have several weeks of rain and the reservoirs have filled to overflowing, to the point that 50 million gallons are dumped each day into the Neuse River, the city has yet to remove the water restrictions. I wish that I could end the story there, unfortunately I can't. It seems that, the City of Raleigh in reducing the water use 20%, has lost revenue in water bills. So now there is an idea floating around Raleigh to increase the water tax by... 20%.

You are probably saying to yourself why don't they just lift the water restrictions?

Because there is a crisis!
