Election Victories

Been there and rejected that –  Kitsap Republicans were clearly on the “right” side of history this November, standing firm for fundamental fairness and resisting a rogue legislature hell-bent on raising your taxes. The utter rejection of discrimination (R88), the approval of $30 car tabs, and the advisory repeal of 9 out of 12 new taxes created in secret, all point to a growing recognition that the Democratic party is out of control – and even they know it. Let’s keep fighting in 2020! Post courtesy of the Kitsap Patriots Tea Party website

Demand an Audit

Election season draws near.  How can we possibly choose between judicial candidates when we know absolutely nothing about them? That’s a serious question, not a rhetorical one. Self-aggrandizing write-ups in the Voter’s Guide tell us absolutely nothing about past job performance of the judicial candidates.  It’s the Naked Emperor in the room — a system whereby voters are expected to make informed choices with no transparency as to the candidates who seek our vote, and, in fact, that information is intentionally kept from us such that we cannot make an informed decision. This is the best we can offer?

Whereas the Platform of the Republican National Committee (RNC) includes a declaration of opposition to, and urges the repeal of, all state legislation that attempts to implement the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact (NPVIC); Whereas the framers of the Federal Constitution rigorously sought an effective compromise in the selection of the Chief Executive that preserved both republican principles of government AND the inherent Sovereignty of the States; Whereas the method of Presidential election as outlined in Article II, Section 1 and the 12th Amendment reflect the time-tested and resilient intent of the framers of the Constitution; Whereas any attempt to

Reject Referendum 88

I-1000 was approved on April 28, 2019 by the Washington State Legislature, passing by votes along party lines with Democrats approving I-1000 and Republicans rejecting I-1000 as biased legislation that would foster preferential treatment to selected individuals. I-1000 was designed to change the definitions of affirmative action and preferential treatment.  It allows for change in the way affirmative action laws and policies are implemented.  It will allow discrimination, based on race, sex, color, ethnicity or national origin as long as it is not the sole factor in the selection.  As long as one discriminating characteristic is not the sole reason
