I was looking at housing in Anchorage today and was surprised at how relatively expensive it is.
That's because there aren't many jobs, and all of your money goes toward other costs of living (food, clothing, power, etc).

This all needs to stop. we as A COUNTRY need to come together to wipe opression out of this country forever. No more leaving the citizens in the ban states high and dry and on their own. There is nothing we can do on our own to change our own laws when 75+% of the population agrees with them the way they are and so do the judges.
If the people in your own state won't stand up for their rights, why should I stick my neck out for them?

If they are willing to be 'trampled' and abused, then they are getting what they deserve.
Education and activism starts at home - not half way across the country. Get people in your own state active and motivated, and you'll be able to get outside help. But, as long as the residents of the state are willing to lay down and take the abuse, there's no point in outside parties trying to help.
