Hunter S. Thompson put together a campaign to elect himself as Sheriff of Pitkin county. It combined aggressive radicalism, a higher level of organization than the previous Freak Power campaign, more controversy and danger as well as some frivolous moments.
These would include:
- Legalization of drugs on a recreational basis (although profiteering dealers would be prosecuted harshly)
- A promised that if elected, he would not eat mescaline whilst on duty.
- Rip up all city streets with jackhammers and sod the streets at once.
- Change the name Aspen to Fat City. This would prevent greed heads, land rapers, and other human jackals from capitalizing on the name 'Aspen'. These swine should be fucked, broken, and driven across the land.
- It will be the general philosophy of the sheriff's office that no drug worth taking shall be sold for money. My first act as sheriff will be to install on the sheriff's lawn a set of stocks to punish dishonest dope dealers.
