Want to Prove the Naysayers Wrong?

Nattering Nabobs of Negativity? :) ***
I'm hearing drumbeats that I am a fool. That I am wasting my time trying to grow a more entrepreneurial Idaho. All I get is patted on the head. The right people will NEVER listen... and take the bold action required.
Yes, there are days I get that feeling but really? Really??
            Here's my sense:
I am 100% sure that we CAN do this, we CAN grow a more entrepreneurial economy
I am 100% sure that we SHOULD try - the payoffs are so high, the risks so low
I am 100% sure that we WON'T -too many people just aren't willing to do the right things the right way (and for the right reasons)
I'm asking YOU, my friends and acquaintances, to tell me the truth. 
AM I a fool to keep trying?
Better still, PROVE ME WRONG! :)
In the meantime... here's what keeps me going. I get tears in my eyes when I have exchanges like these on Twitter, Facebook or email...
