Deciders: Everybody’s opinion counts.
Elections: No funny business like Florida 2000.
Media: They tell people things you want to hide.
Oversight: Others are allowed to watch what you do.
Choice: How people act in private is private.
Republicans: Endangered species that may survive.
Attorney General: Somebody who knows legal stuff.
Congress: They pass laws that you enforce and obey.
Youth: Time for going to college, not war.
