'After you,' ... 'No, after you'

Geitner Simmons (first item) comments on the idea by some libertarian activists to move an organized cadre of freedom-loving folks to a single state and try to conduct a semi-hostile takeover of its political apparatus.

The AP story gets pretty damn funny when actual elected officials in the potential states are asked for comment. Folks in Idaho say Montana would be just fine ... but Idahoans demur, singing the praises of their northeastern neighbors.

BTW, Nevada didn't make the list of Free State candidates, though it might have a decade ago. Too many people (2.1 million or so) to qualify. Shame, actually, because it would be the only one with a reasonable climate.
