We’ve been beating around the bush for long enough. It’s time we got serious about taking back control of our government from the business-as-usual bureaucrats that have taken over Olympia.
That’s why I’m introducing my latest initiative, I-999, which will completely eliminate the offices of state representatives, senators, judges, and governor.
I-999 is a smart, balanced, reasonable proposal that closes loopholes in state government that have allowed tax-raising government cronies to maintain a tight fist of control over the years, thwarting the will of the people time and again.
We’re very excited that the initiative process in Washington State allows us so much opportunity to govern as we the people see fit, but as we have seen in the past, simply passing initiatives is no longer enough. Too many times the people have let their voice be heard through an initiative, only to have it thrown out by the courts or discarded by the legislature.
In 1999 the people passed I-695 to limit car tab taxes, but the courts threw it out, and to this day $30 car tabs remain nothing more than a fantasy. In 2000, we passed I-722 to cut property taxes, but the courts threw it out.
Are you sensing a pattern here? We need to throw out the bums that are throwing out the will of the people.
It is time to stand up and say “no more.” No more will we allow our will to be overruled by the elite in Olympia. No more will we stand by and watch our taxes spiral out of control. No more will we let our elected leaders spit in each and every one of our faces—literally.
Opponents of our efforts will no doubt attempt to use the very system we seek to dissolve in an attempt to stop this measure from becoming law. We will need all the support we can get if we are going to succeed at abolishing our corrupt system of so-called elected so-called representatives.
When you think about it, what do we really need government for, anyway? It seems that all they do is raise our taxes and spend our money on useless projects. When we pass initiatives, they toss them out or only go along when it’s time for reelection. How is that representative of our desire to have amazing public services and little to no taxes? It’s not.
Your persistence, endurance, passion, credulity, enthusiasm, courage, inflammation, and determination have made our previous efforts a success. You are the ones that make this new initiative possible. So get out there and do your part to get I-999 on the ballot and passed this November.
