Here are some updates on the freewayblogging cases in Illinois and Ohio. I don't know if my example will be brought up in either case, but I sort of hope it is. The problem with making political signposting illegal, apart from being utterly unconstitutional and, indeed, a knife plunged into the very heart of everything this country's supposed to stand for, is that it's practically unenforceable.
With thousands of miles of roadside at your disposal, you pick the time, place, and manner of posting. Following my methods, the act itself takes less than ten seconds. Up until then you're just a person carrying a folded piece of cardboard, after that you're just a person walking away.
Corny as it sounds, the greatest weapon a freewayblogger has in their arsenal is faith in America. I can do what I do with no fear of getting caught because, simply, I don't fear getting caught. I was taught that this was a country where expressing my political beliefs as effectively as I can is not only my right, in times of crisis it's my responsibility, and I'd be glad, even honored, to defend that view in court.
But not until I absolutely have to.
