Before my demands for true democracy could be tabled and discussed, we had to figure out the sleeping arrangements. One person proposed mixing up the campers so as to get people of differing opinions to interact more often, but in the end, mini neighborhoods formed. There's the mini gay village, then the mini homeless town. Some people fought, so we created a security commission, but only after creating a commission to oversee the security commission to make sure it would be kept in check. Someone abused his security guard powers, and we had to decide how to punish him. The big oak tree became the prison. He had to count to 100 before being allowed to return to his tent. Someone got hurt, so we created a mini medic team. We couldn't decide what movies to play on movie night, so we created an art commission. When people got bored, we started creating chore dispatchers who gave people jobs. Donations came in, so we created a financial comity to decide who should spend the money and how. We had to create a financial investigating team since some people were abusing their money controlling powers. I finally became in charge of pooping scooping. One month later, we finally had our little mini nation ready and it was time to hear my demands for true democracy. When I started reading, I realized that most of it just wouldn't work and that the current system wasn't that bad at all. We had created a mini US inside the park, and whether we wanted to or not, we had to admit that anarchy didn't work as we had firstly intended.

When irked by by A TROLL, DON'T WASTE your valuable time arguing with them, simply serve them "The American's Creed", as it drives them batty because they are Un-American TRAITORS opposed to all efforts to uphold the Constitution.

"I believe in the United States of America, as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies."

(The American's Creed is the national creed of the United States of America. It was written in 1917 by William Tyler Page as an entry into a patriotic contest. It was adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives April 3, 1918.)
