50% chance of Democracy

by Marshall Begel

“Simple chance decided a seat on the Madison City Council on Wednesday,
with a name selected at random handing Isadore Knox Jr. a victory…”

Wisconsin State Journal

All votes are decisive! All voices do matter!
Forget the statistics. Ignore all the chatter.

The people decide, not some slick bureaucrat.
Now wish your guy luck as I draw from this hat!
