Democrats' Subversive Activity

Under the Washington State Constitution, the people are the ultimate power in the state.
"ARTICLE I - DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
SECTION 1 POLITICAL POWER. All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights."

The people clarified the constitution by the initiative process, asserting that it would take a 2/3 majority of the legislature to raise taxes. This is not a ban on tax increases.

Now that the legislature revoked that clarification, they put themselves above the people on a procedural safeguard. The requirement is for a 2/3 majority. This clarification is overthrown in direct defiance of the people's right to govern themselves. This is a subversion.

RCW 9.81.020 specifies subversive activity.
9.81.020 Subversive activities made felony — Penalty.
(1) It is a class B felony for any person knowingly and willfully to:
(a) Commit, attempt to commit, or aid in the commission of any act intended to overthrow, destroy or alter, or to assist in the overthrow, destruction or alteration of, the constitutional form of the government of the United States, or of the state of Washington or any political subdivision of either of them, by revolution, force or violence; or
(b) Advocate, abet, advise, or teach by any means any person to commit, attempt to commit, or assist in the commission of any such act under such circumstances as to constitute a clear and present danger to the security of the United States, or of the state of Washington or of any political subdivision of either of them; or
(c) Conspire with one or more persons to commit any such act; or
(d) Assist in the formation or participate in the management or to contribute to the support of any subversive organization or foreign subversive organization knowing the organization to be a subversive organization or a foreign subversive organization; or
(e) Destroy any books, records or files, or secrete any funds in this state of a subversive organization or a foreign subversive organization, knowing the organization to be such.
(2) Any person upon a plea of guilty or upon conviction of violating any of the provisions of this section shall be fined not more than ten thousand dollars, or imprisoned for not more than ten years, or both, at the discretion of the court.

It goes without saying that a person who is a felon may not hold public office. Those who voted to defy the will of the people ought to be tried for subversive activity.

I should add that any state employee who is "only following orders" should also be tried for subversion.

Effing the ineffable - Washington State elections sometimes have been rigged.
