That’s what Heck of a Guy soon-to-be Crystal Lake resident blogger Allan Showalter says I am promoting with my “Dick Tracy for County Seal” Campaign.
He even uses “Power to the People” to headline a paragraph of my stepping over the line:
“This is, of course, only another in a long succession of subversive tactics on Cal’s part.
- First he disrupts school board meetings by laughing loudly,
- then he declares retinal warfare on officials, using flash photography as his weapon of choice,
- he keeps asking for material under the Freedom of Information Act even though it’s clear the powers that be don’t want him to have that data,
- he photographs folks having private meetings to discuss agenda items not deemed suitable for public meetings, … .
Now, however, he may have gone too far, promoting the radical and clearly dangerous notion of participative democracy, implicitly suggesting that voters might be capable of choosing a proper County Seal.
Does he really expect the County Board to put the entire local governmental infrastructure at risk by allowing the hoi-polloi to make a decision better relegated to sanctioned officials?
What’s next – Cal coming out against taxation without representation?
Showalter says that Dick Tracy is running as an independent, by the way.
Undoubtedly a “law and order” independent.
