Especially when they are pushed and promoted by governors with Rs behind their names.
Schwarzenegger is about 1/100,000ths as important as the NGOs themselves are. That's because their members are out there helping to network these across the nation, one community at a time. Selling grandma and grandpa on the concept of willing their property to the state or some conservency is one of their methods. Another is for them to convince communities that they should buy up land and place it off limits.
Schwarzenegger was an idiot for doing what he did, but he'll be gone in a few years and the conservancies will still be around. We need to focus on destroying them. Frankly destroying Arnold's future viability as a candidate would a a good secondary goal.
Let's face it, the conservancy you are upset about, would have become reality just about no matter what. Only if Tom would have won would it have been struck down. That wasn't going to happen.
