82. From an organizing point of view, the "Congresscritter...Tea Party" fellow might be the

a most passionate advocate, with a lot less to lose. How badly does one want to win? A bonus, it might do the racists among them some good to associate with others for awhile, see another way to live.

(Our state rep just won again. He got popped a while back for pulling a gun on an unarmed man in a road rage incident, but it doesn't seem to have impacted his popularity. I bet he wouldn't like this AT ALL, though I haven't heard his opinion on the weed vote.)

There is a huge group with interests all over the place here who could be organized among, to support the person who gets arrested by the feds with a 1/4 ounce on state or private property.

I wonder what they would do if 5 or 6 hundred thousand people (of the potentially millions interested) in a couple cities started showing up on state land around their nice federal offices, sitting down until they are arrested for the joint they have in their hand too? Well, ok, the roach. It would shut the justice system down and create a huge crisis. They want to send 60 new coal trains through here every day, for China. Imagine those folks just go sit on the tracks until their vote is respected. Because if we are gonna be railroaded, we might as sit on real tracks.

Big place, lots of people, and the IWW did some good work and dying here. Some people just don't take being dictated to well.

That whole demographic change that is pointed to in the last election is what carried these initiatives, I think. Those are the same ones that might get this thrown back in their face, so I don't know how wise it might be to pursue this. 2014 and 2016 need to be kept in mind, with 4 more years of 10,000 people a day turning 65 and economic conditions that may not be markedly different than they are now.

It will be interesting to watch the organizing, if any.
