Queen Christine wants your help! How can Washington State save money?
Posted by Liberty on November 17, 2008
“Like the rest of the country—indeed the world—we are in the midst of an economic slowdown. State government is going to have to sacrifice and make hard choices just like Washington families. But families know, and we know, that tough people always outlast tough times, and together we will emerge stronger from the challenge.” Governor Chris Gregoire
First of all, let me be really clear. I thought that the best way for the State of Washington to fix its budget problem was to elect a Conservative like Dino Rossi. Since that’s off the table, the next best option is going to be participating in the Governor’s outreach attempt here and letting her know what you think about how the State of Washington spends your money. If you have ideas for the Governor, you can submit them through the magic of the internet here: http://www.governor.wa.gov/contact/default.asp#startform.
And…through the magic of the internet, your free-market, low-taxes, personal responsibility solutions will be magically translated into something like this:
“Dear Governor Gregiore, the economy is so bad, we can’t make it on our own. Please raise taxes and give us free health care, free child care, free food, free public transportation, free housing…”
But, it’s worth a shot. Even in a deep blue liberal stronghold like Washington, Conservatives need to speak up, just on the off chance that we can change even one person’s perspective.
