Land Use Rights Action
Posted November 20, 2002 - 03:40 PM
It's time to stop stupid land-closure legislation in its tracks! We are citizens and we are being shut out of the process!
It takes an organized effort, lots of money, and political clout to get action around here. This is the political clout part.
A proposal: If each of us puts 100 names on a group list of our friends, neighbors, and riders who don't frequent TT, we could very quickly get the word out to 50,000-100,000 people who will choose our side when they know the facts. We can almost instantly flood lawmakers' offices with opposing opinions on any stupid legislation that further erodes our rights. We could instantly voice our support for those who further our cause, head off the lies and deceit used by the other side to sway uninformed voters, and it will take only minutes a week. Just pass on the alerts and ask for each person's help. Every one of us can post an alert. Every one of us can reach at least 100 people who are not helping us right now, but will when properly informed. It's time we ALL did something to force the issue to our side. It's hard to beat sheer brute force! If we stick together as never before, we can help our own cause.
I have and I use my 100 names regularly. Do you have yours?

As popular as dirt bike/ATV/snowmobile sales are, the time is fast approaching (past?) where the manufacturers will realize the decline in sales due to no place to ride. Why do they ignore that fact?
They could do a lot to help us and themselves...

Many of the dealers in this area were doing that at one time. Don't know why it seemed to die off. I guess there has to be some immediate benefit for them to continue. Any ideas?
PS: Paul, yeah, we have many members, I think over 12,000 now. Maybe half are outside the US who don't have a dog in the fight yet. So out of the 6000 or so stateside guys, maybe 25% are regulars???? I don't know. That's 1500 or so. If each one of us sends to 100 people, that's 150,000 people who will get our message. That's plenty if they are inclined to help. If we can get this posted in a few other forums as well, it might tend to unify us more. The ARRA and BRC alerts are a great source, and there are others as well.
