I get 100% what you are saying, but if the hope is, it accomplishes something it wont. Not with the tools we keep using. Oregon Lobbyist are powerless, they do not have any influence or communication what so ever with the left at all. The left is making the calls. Until we start pushing lobbies harder for results or we wont pay if all they do is play defense, until that day we will be right here stuck. Its like the Wizard of Oz, the man behind the curtain, has no power no way to change anything its just an illusion. But we can make a difference, just not doing what we have been.
