One of the hallmarks of America’s democracy is the right to vote on who are leaders will be.  And implicit in the process is the guarantee that elections will be run fairly without any hint of corrupting the process.  That includes a voter’s confidence that those running our elections and those in charge of the government in power do not, by their actions, taint the process.  Unfortunately, that is not always the case.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.
