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.
Now there's no sound except the wind,
The needle leans down on 100,
Wind-burned eyeballs strain to see down the center line,
no room at all for mistakes,
that's when the strange music starts,
The Edge...there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. Hunter S. Thompson
