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.

Gregoire Still Doesn't Get It

[When] Chris Gregoire took over from Gary Locke [she] was amazed by the financial surplus Washington state had and wondered what to do with it. I guess she figured it out.

Now Washington state is billions of dollars in debt. ... I think the first thing she needs to learn is to quit spending money we don't have on things we don't need and learn to live on what we have -- just like the taxpayers are required to do that don't have a "bottomless checkbook." That is something she just doesn't quite seem to understand.
