I like your use of the word "superannuated" in your posting.

Since you think this is obviously a bad idea what are your suggestions for turning the tide of creeping Hillaryism? Just curious.

I'm not a Libertarian party member, and I probably consider myself more of a conservative than libertarian in terms of political philosophy but it seems a worthwhile attempt to create positive change.

Working to elect Republicans in Oregon certainly hasn't been a good use of time. The R's just caved and increased the income tax here. Bush, well I'm glad he's in there and not the other guy, but he's not exactly Barry Goldwater II, now is he?

So if we, the citizen frogs, are not to be gradually boiled in the hot water of creeping socialism SOMETHING different has to happen. If this is a bad idea, or a useless one, what's a good one?

That's a very good question, and one that doesn't seem to have a good answer at the moment. This Free State thing is simply not going to work, though. There just aren't enough people involved to make it work. It's doubtful if they will ever reach their goal of 20K, and that's not nearly enough.

It took a long time to get where we are, and it will probably take a long time to get somewhere else.

Try being more cheerful, less gloomy, less prickly, less sensitive for starters.

I live in New York, where nearly every vote I've ever cast has been useless. It sure would be nice to make my vote count for once. Once chosen, a Free State might mean a lot to a lot of people who don't FReep, aren't interviewed, but who would embrace the opportunity to make a change.
