No problem, Zeez. We're a political anomaly here, with lots of internal confusion, unnoticed by many possessing the bulk of it, thereby defying Socrates' directive; 'Know thyself."
The libertarians, socially-conscious anarchists, environmentalist-minded folks, and other sometimes thoughtful niche populations here have been living under a very red umbrella, at times fairly quietly, for some years now.. Though the Anchorage and Fairbanks areas have engaged in a slide to the middle or even a lil' bit left, in terms of local governments.
One of the first States to declare cannabis a matter of (State) Constitutional Right of Privacy (Article 1 Section 22, via the <Irwin> Ravin Decision in Ravin v State, 1975), while living since the early mid-70s on oil wealth, and owning more class III weapons per capita than nearly any other state. Kaleidoscope demographics. ;^>)
Also (mildly) boosting our limitedly-eclectic political scene here, was the fact that at the end of the Vietnam Police Action, many vets of various political persuasions, who were already aware of the personal benefits of cannabis from their earlier experiences, and were burned out on society, left, right, and center, moved to places with more open country, and sometimes formed rural and remote (loosely defined, but real) enclaves during the 'back to the land' era, providing each other community and informal supports.. Alaska, Upper Peninsula Michigan, Colorado, Wyoming, etc.
The cross-section of growers here, in terms of political persuasions/subscriptions, even going back to the 70s, was sometimes a source of thoughtful entertainment.
Salmon and weed have brought a lot of people together here. Seems that good food and -feeling- good (as well as revenues, <as the State's economy tanks>, and $ in general) might be the common denominators that save the place a little bit.. Maybe.. ;^>)
