When these brilliant men initiated the aforementioned documents, only a minority of the populous supported them and a strong vocal minority opposed them. It is no different today in my present battle to deliver independence to Carroll County. The same criticisms and insults are hurled now as back than. People don't change much, and human nature is what it is. I’ve been called an insolent child, a dictator, an idiot, a megalomaniac, nuts, certifiable, a Democrat, a liberal, and I am sure there are more that I cannot print — all because I understand the political science of the Constitution and its genius, which is guaranteed to all citizens, even ones here in our little conservative county. The name-calling, though immature, is both funny and reassuring to me that I already won the argument.
