Yet, and I think we will agree, where both Conflict and Contest exist and we must root them out.

In California, the poster child for all things politically extreme, we see the pathologically miss-informed challenged by the hopelessly ill-informed both attempting to seduce the un-informed.  But let’s not forget the Great State of Colorado presently engaged in the same charade of seduction along with Arizona, Pennsylvania and so on and so forth.
