They are a bit if you think about it. They want to "decentralize wealth."
And while they do want a smaller national government they want much more
powerful, if not downright absolutist local governments with insanely high
tax rates. All mixed with extreme environmentalism. Sounds like a toss up
between fuedalism and communism, with standard of living getting tossed
right out the window from both an economic angle *and* an environmental
angle. Their politics scare me enough.
