"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions. But laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors." - Thomas Jefferson (appears in the Jefferson Memorial)

The optout-position

The Facebook group “Washington Tax Payers OPT OUT of Rob McKenna’s lawsuit”, formed in opposition to Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna’s joining in a lawsuit over the new federal health care law, is roaring ahead. For a one-state group (its title probably provides some discouragement for non-residents to participate, though doubtless some do) it has grown past – to just shy of 19,000 so far, in a few days.

It’s a busy group too, as you can see on Facebook.

This is the tightest political walk McKenna has had since running for state office. The demand conflict between base and larger electorate are increasingly severe.
