Mushrooms for all! Mushrooms for democracy!

This 4th of July "expect delays" sign was stuck in holiday traffic in Chinatown this weekend.  It got me to thinking:  other than delays, what makes an American democracy?  Of course, I turned to the letters to the editor of the Texarkana Gazette (not a church newsletter!), where I was reminded of the importance of the franchise:
