tilled vs. fallow ground

What an encouraging time of campaigning last night at the Washington County Fair! In contrast to some other fairs recently, it was obvious that the soil for Libertarianism and (true) Progressive Politics in Salem had been tilled and many seeds had been planted. After a decade of local Libertarian elected officials, media interaction, and otherwise spreading the word in Salem, it was far easier to speak with the average fair-goer. More broadly, this speaks to the need for and the importance of perseverance in planting seeds, plodding along as necessary to reach our long-term goals of greater Freedom for the American people.
