Democracy: political or social equality; democratic spirit.

Here at our ranch, there is always something to be done because we do animal rescue. (

When the time arises that say, the dog run must be cleaned, or the litter box must be emptied, or five acres must be mowed in afternoon heat, there is no bickering or wasted time. Two straws are provided, and two sons pick one each. Decisions here are quick and easy. Everyone is equal. None is favored. And no one is too good to pick up a dog dropping. There aren't always robust smiles, but no one can say Mom isn't fair and equitable.

I've written a report to the President with my findings. He hasn't answered yet.
