I don't think what Denis does is troll either

I agree with you.  He seems sincere to me. 


Dennis is about the only one I've heard in N.H. that seems reasonable and makes sense. Mark being another.

The Freak Staters are not accomplishing anything but turning off those that agree with them. The immaturity is shocking.

I am actually on the fence right now of pulling my amp money. All it will take is one more silly story of Ian acting like a child in public.

He's over-the-top pissy about it, and the name-calling is a perfect example of why someone who's not state-oriented and/or a government employee doesn't quite so the issue as so divisive.

This is not true.  They are attracting more people who think it's working.  That's not nothing.  Do I agree with everything they do?  No.  It's just that my hyperbole alarm went off.

I agree.  For me it's not about the type of activism.  It's about them being in-your-face about it, and giving the bureaucrats a good case for saying the activists are "picking on them." 

It's one thing to insist on living free, and be willing to pay the consequences, and try to break the system.  It's another thing to claim that you're trying to "work inside the system" by having a "drinking game" at one of their events.  This is purely dishonest and despicable.  It takes a good point (that the open container law is just plain stupid) and makes it difficult to support the that truth with the people who've been "played" by the activists, or agreed with the bureaucrats.
