    Perhaps. But what it READS like is someone trying to start a political argument while pretending it wasn't their intent.

    Wikipedia says EAA has 872 employees. Do you expect EAA to pay for them to move to South Dakota? Or is EAA just going to fire most of them and re-hire replacements in South Dakota...at South Dakota labor rates, instead of Wisconsin's? So, yes, the corporate elite will see a rise in pay. The rest just see the unemployment line.

    Most people do not realize that EAA was one of the first, if not THE first, aviation organization to be 100% inclusive to anyone who wanted to join, regardless of race, color, etc. In the 1950's Neil Loving was welcomed into the small but growing EAA. If you do not know who Neil Loving was, please look him up. His airplane is still in the EAA Museum.

    You can argue that EAA provides an example that political organizations could aspire to.

    Best of luck,

    If it ain't broke don't fix it. I always try to remain positive in my posts but in this case I'll make an exception. I see your thinly veiled political slant to this. Why not put it in those terms ? I'll go out on a limb here and say if you put it that way, 90% of EAA members would demand a move to South Dakota. Or Florida. Or Arizona. And you can't beat the political climate in any of those places. Maybe we could vote on it. Nah, some people like it here, there'd be too much voter fraud. Good luck with your proposal.
