Rick: Let’s get one thing clear, this isn’t a democracy anymore.
An election is coming. Universal peace is declared, and the foxes have a sincere interest in prolonging the lives of the poultry.
Let all people come in, and vote fairly; it is to support one or the other party, to deny any man’s vote.

Many forms of government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.
