That area is predominantly conservative, very Republican. Tons of anti-Obama people up there and a huge amount of Tea Party support. Hopefully they will see that we liberals are pretty nice folks and are doing our best to help their situation. If you go up there, good luck, be yourself, hold hands with your partner (M or F or T), be proud and spread the love. The right-wingers need to know that being a liberal means caring for all others, not just Christians and Republicans.

I don't think anyone who has been to Darrington for the meltdown would agree with the above comment. We are a very friendly town and welcome the summer meltdown with open arms. We have been helping promote it as much as possible. It has been in existence for years and we love it! Bring on the meltdown, can't wait to see everyone!

You sir or mam, do not know the people of Darrington. There are many conservatives Republican and a great many liberal Democrats. I absolutely take offense at stupid comment. We have a great respect for people. "If you go up there, good luck, be yourself, hold hands with your partner (M or F or T), be proud and spread the love. The right-wingers need to know that being a liberal means caring for all others, not just Christians and Republicans." And what makes you think your way of thinking is the only way to think??????????????? We care about people, all races, genders, creed and religion. Just because we don't fit into your mold does not mean we are less than you. It's people like you who makes us sick. Putting us down and not even knowing us.

You will find that the majority of us up here do not ask how you vote or any other personal questions that may be offensive. We are thankful to be alive and get up each day and thank the Creator for the beauty around us, the clean water that runs in our rivers, our beautiful mtns. and forests, our wildlife, and most of all we are thankful for our family and friends. You will find several different denominations of churches here and you also find we celebrate our love for our community. If there is a need it does not matter how you vote, if you go to church or not or what you believe, the community comes together to meet those needs. Go and look at our community center by the Darrington Schools. This was built by funds raised by the community and one tradition that has gone on forever is if someone has a funeral, a dinner is furnished at no cost to the family. Does not matter who you are, what you believe, or how you vote. You just have to live here. We are a very caring community and have always worked together for the good of all.

Stereotypes are bad. You don't like it done to you so please do not do it to us! To paint all of this community with one broad brush is ignorant and the opposite of what liberalism stands for.

@ indicadogwalk, WOW! Such a negative response. I am a liberal as well. I also live and work in Darrington and have for 15 years. These are wonderful people and while not everyone shares my opinion, they do respect me.
