"No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions." --Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler, 1804.

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.
