The following is a letter to the editor from a Waltham resident.
Unlike the three statewide ballot questions, which will change state law, the non-binding questions ask state legislators to support a resolution calling upon Congress to take specific actions.
Democracy, political activist David Cobb said last night, means the rule of the people.
But, when he asked a room of about 30 people if they think the people are ruling in the country today, no one raised their hand.
"We are losing the ability as a people to actually claim that we are exercising real political power," said Cobb, a national spokesman for the coalition Move to Amend who spoke at the Senior Center Thursday at an event sponsored by several advocacy groups.
