  1. The particular mailer was addressed to me personally. yet the TWYL committee wasted it's money trying to convince me not to sign because I already signed both the one to change Faulkner County & the other one to change the entire state.

  2. I get a lot of these fliers and consider them to be nothing but junk mail. I signed the petition, not because I want Faulkner County to be wet, as I consider myself neutral on the subject. What I am not neutral about, is the right of the people to choose for themselves.

    This "Decline to Sign" campaign isn't anything but an attempt to stop the democratic process. By signing the petition, you are not saying that you want Faulkner county to be wet, you are saying that you believe in the democratic process and the rights of the citizen to vote. The simple fact is that in the democratic process, this could go either way. Voters can vote for or against making Faulkner County wet. Those that oppose the county being wet, simply need to vote "NO". If a majority of the citizens vote "NO" then Faulkner county will not become wet.

    The ploy, of saying "Remember, your name will be a part of the public record, and you won't be in very good company" is a scare tactic and nothing more. The fact is that the "They Win, You lose" Committee is not on the record for being anti-democracy. They are on the record for inferring threat to those that sign a petition which allows voters to exercise their right to vote... This has been further supported by people grabbing petitions, from those collecting signatures.

    By not signing the petition, you are either afraid that democracy will work or you are saying that the people are simply to stupid to be allowed to choose for themselves. By signing the petition, you are saying that you trust your fellow citizens to vote in a way that best suits us and that they are smart enough to have a direct hand in creating our laws, in our community.

    Like I said, I am neutral on the issue of Faulkner county, becoming wet or staying dry. I don't particularly care either way. I can not say that I want to see liquor stores on every corner, but I am not opposed to people being able to buy a six pack of beer while they are picking up some groceries either. What I am against, is the attempt to subvert the democratic process...and IMHO, that is exactly what "They Win, You Lose" committee is attempting to do.
