      Saw this essay today, and was reminded of your essay from some time back.
      True legitimacy comes only from the consent of the governed. Bait and switch is not consent. Gerrymandering and vote-rigging is not consent. Imported electorates are not consent. But voluntary turnout at the polls is consent. We've seen this before. In the Soviet Union, where ordinary conversation was also a prosecutable offense—they invented political correctness—turnout was 99%. Simulated democracy was the first step in Marx's communism. Contrary to Cold War propaganda there was some turnover in the Politburo, more turnover than in the US Congress it's claimed, but the direction was just as pre-decided and nonnegotiable. High turnout was taken as consent, and consent legitimized their license as owner-operator. http://woodpilereport.com/

      Haven't seen any essays from you lately, slowing down or giving up in disgust?

      It was just a misunderstanding, which Karen and I have cleared up (thanks Karen). The thread is back up now. I do appreciate the support.

      I'm not too clear on it either. When I first started posting my blog, I had the blessings of Chuck, who was the site owner at the time. Apparently things have changed.

      I guess I'm not too clear on the rules. What is the basis for deciding content is not acceptable?

      Now that is down right disappointing, your blog being blocked that is. I am new to this forum and was really enjoying your writing. I will continue to follow you on the blog site.

      DJ, I'm assuming Karen decided your usual lead to your blog is against the rules now. Makes me wonder in Hollowdweller did the same we'd have the same result.

      No promoting personal agenda? What does that even mean?

      At any rate, if that's the case, PM your link. I enjoy reading your opinions.

      Congrats Jim. I see you got whacked by Karen too. She called my post trolling and it was nothing of the sort. It was just funny.
