Link Harvest: Tea Party Mad State Legislators Preempt Local Government

This is why munibroadband gets such strong support in a lot of red states, and we can win these fights in red states when we organize. It resonates very much as a local issue. Of course, self-interest helps push this into the "let us local folks solve our own problems without big (state) government interfering" rather than "keep big government from squeezing out private industry," but that's fine. Remember, public policy is not about getting people to do the right thing for the right reasons, public policy is about getting people to do the right thing for their own reasons.
