We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness." - Declaration of Independence (emphasis added)

To address the growing divide between urban and rural interests, three proposals are being considered:

1.  The creation of a new state
2.  A change to the representation of the State Senate - the Phillips County proposal (details here)
3.  Requesting annexation into another state

Our kids deserve a better future.  They deserve a future filled with opportunities not impeded by a government that has no respect for the rural lifestyle. 
We appreciate the hard work of our farmers and ranchers that produce our food. We have witnessed how agriculture and energy production can co-exist.
