Summary: Signs are a small price to pay for what we are buying.
I hate signs and flyers too. In fact, I've been outraged more than once at finding flyers on my doorknob, porch, driveway. That is LITTER on private property, and if I catch the person doing it, I will let them know how I feel. I'm considering putting a nice-looking plaque by my door stating "post no bills" and having a posted fine for littering/defacing my property. I don't know the legality of that. I wish I did.
And yet a have a sign for Mike Denny in my window -- of MY choice, posted on MY property.
Now, I won't try to pretend that I like the signs for "the other guy" in my neighbor's window. But I will recognize his/her right. I don't even like the sign in my window. It's ugly (I made one with paper and black felt pen). But it's worth the trade off.
Because eventually I will be able to take my share of the government land back, have the room I need to spread out, select land carefully, surrounded by people of like mind. And we will make our own personal Austria, and not let anyone post any ugly signs on our land.
But right now, there is a much more important duty. THE WORLD IS BEING TAKEN OVER! The powers that be are getting way too powerful. The US Republicans aren't focused on defense spending only to make their pals rich. Having the defense keeps them in power. Have you noticed how blatently the US goes about it's own way, and every other civilized country either joins us or cowers away? No one is stupid enough to go head-to-head with the US, and if they do, they lose. IF ANY POWER RISES TO THE TOP, we will lose the last safety of anarchy we have -- that being the difference of different countries. We are in grave danger. We are at the forefront of world domination.
Now more than ever, I am willing to sacrifice my comfortable lifestyle to protect my liberty. I'm willing to sacrifice much more than just the beauty of my neighborhood.
Wherever there is public land, and it is legal to post, I think we should put up signs. Otherwise we are just shooting ourselves in the foot. Then I think we should go back and take them all down after the election.
