Have we forgotten who is really the boss?

Dear Editor:

A simple reminder that the power is still vested in the people to govern the government and to abolish it if we deem to do so. I do not propose that we abolish our government, but I do suggest that you vote this Nov. 2 as our votes are counted one at a time. Yes, your vote does count.

"Kentucky Constitution Section 4

"Power inherent in the people - Right to alter, reform, or abolish government.

"All power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority and instituted for their peace, safety, happiness and the protection of property. For the advancement of these ends, they have at all times an inalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may deem proper.

"Text as Ratified on: August 3, 1891, and revised September 28, 1891.

"History: Not yet amended."
