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.

Tipping Point

Are we at a tipping point? There is enough power to be had promising everything that politicians are not what they used to be. The Democratic Party has endorsed too much authoritarianism to rightly bear the name "Democratic" anymore.

Consider the autocrats in Olympia. The elected legislature is empowered by the state constitution to enact taxes and fees. Every state has similar provisions. But in Washington State, the legislature cannot enact rises without a 2/3rd majority. So the Democrats referred all fee rises to as gang of 7 unelected bureaucrats. Representation in taxation has been suppressed.

The Democrats got around the 2/3rds requirement in an undemocratic and unconstitutional way. In the process, they stripped the legislature of the power to raise taxes and fees.

We might all effectively be slaves soon -- unless you and I are willing to fight. Vote Yes on I-1125.

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