OK - folks we have closed this thread because despite the thread title it's mostly a political discussion in nature and not really Airstream or even boondocking related. Our site rules are pretty clear about this issue.
Political discussion here is allowed only within a very narrow scope - directly related to Airstreams. You can read about that here: http://www.airforums.com/forums/misc...ork&page=rules
We are an extremely diverse community with widely held opinions on many things. There are many excellent places on the internet to discuss politics, religion and other non-Airstream topics, but here, at this board, the thing we share in common is Airstreams - let's focus on that please.
Thanks for understanding.
