Don’t we have enough laws already?
The tax code is impossibly complicated. It is entirely possible to break laws unintentionally. Enforcement is inconsistent – some very important laws are ignored, while other revenue-generating laws are enforced to the letter.
Patriots believe that we should simply roll back bad legislation of prior years, or remove complicated provisions to condense and simplify the laws of the land.
But…at the state level, our friends in Olympia are already lining up dozens of new laws and additions to old laws to be considered in the upcoming legislative season – before the session has even started!
Beginning in December prior to a new session, legislators are allowed to “prefile” legislation for consideration during the upcoming session.
Do these prefiled bills sound worthwhile to you?
- “Concerning beer and wine tasting at farmers markets”
- “Establishing energy efficiency standards for consumer products”
- “Creating a Washington state ferries commission”
- “Adding to the scenic and recreational highway system”
- “Protecting consumers by assuring persons using the title of social worker have graduated with a degree in social work from an educational program accredited by the council on social work education”
Sausage and Legislation
Is the punchline to the old joke, “What are two things you don’t want to watch being made?”
And yet, watching is exactly what must be done! If the citizens do not pay attention to what our legislators are doing, politicians are free to propose and pass all manner of laws – from the harmful and liberty-encroaching, to the downright silly and time-wasting.
Washington State Campaign for Liberty urges you to join us in holding politicians accountable. With your support, we can keep an eye out for legislative shenanigans.
When we find liberty-encroaching legislation, we’ll need your help to put the politicians on notice!
I know we can count on you, the patriots of Washington State.
A Question of Legislative Philosophy
It seems that today’s political class is more concerned with “getting things done” so they can get re-elected rather than getting things done RIGHT.
Far too many politicians are willing to “reach across the aisle” and attempt to make a bad law “less bad” than to do the right thing and repeal the bad law.

We all know Patty Murray is one of the finest investments the Banksters have made. She takes their money, votes against the people and her own party, yet tries to pretend she isn’t “bought and paid for”. Her latest round of votes to reconfirm Bernanke, expanding the power of the FED and creating a taxpayer-funded gambling slush-fund for the Banksters is all the proof we need!
On her opponent’s website, Dino Rossi doesn’t even address an audit of the crooked Banksters…let alone mention reining them in! This begs the question, will he sponsor/vote for a full and complete Audit of the Fed? And then will he work – really work – to bring the United States back to a constitutional monetary policy?
The poll results are:
Should Liberty/Patriot candidates and organizations support and/or endorse Dino Rossi if he continues his refusal to take a stand against the FED and their Bankster buddies?
- No (67%, 352 Votes)
- Yes (33%, 171 Votes)
Total Voters: 523
