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

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?
