Elephant Update: March

March Madness

Just getting March’s update in under the wire!

The Washington State Legislature will wrap up on April 25th. A big “thank you” to Representatives Gina Mosbrucker and Chris Corry and Senator Curtis King who represent our District and continue to work hard despite the overwhelming Democratic majority.

Many “bad bills” have died, but the few that have made it through have the biggest impact. The issues still of great concern are the Capital Gains tax, the legalization and possession of all drugs, the continuation of Governor Inslee’s mandates, rights for rental homeowners, education overreach into our children’s health, restrictions on Second Amendment rights, and severe restrictions and oversight on our law enforcement. **The budget will also be passed** If you have a moment, please check out this link to search for Bill information. https://app.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/ Contact your Representatives and Senators either by email or phone. Your opinion does matter.

Teens and Young Adults:

Once a month, we like to publish an excerpt from the Klickitat County Republicans Platform, our values and guiding principles. This month we are featuring:


America’s national debt is now bigger than America’s Economy, with interest on that debt the fastest growing part of the federal budget. We must act now to increase our GDP and to cut government spending to insure a balanced budget. 

Therefore, we support:

  1. Continuing rejection of state income tax
  2. Abolishing the state estate and inheritance taxes
  3. Simplifying the federal tax system and limiting IRS powers
  4. Requiring a balanced budget
  5. Ending unfunded mandates

Final note: I was fortunate to have an opportunity to visit relatives in the small and coastal town of Edenton, NC, for a few days. If you find yourself on the east coast, I highly recommend a visit. With a population of 5,000 people, many of the residents live in the original homes built in the 1700’s and 1800’s. The town’s most famous residents include Joseph Hewes, a signer of the Declaration of Independence; Hugh Williamson, signer of the US Constitution; and James Iredell, Justice on the first Supreme Court under President Washington. Amazing!

  1. Science, Politics and COVID: Will Truth Prevail?

    “The COVID pandemic has been a tragedy, no doubt. But it has exposed profound issues in America that threaten the principles of freedom and order that Americans take for granted.

    First, I have been shocked at the unprecedented exertion of power by the government since last March-issuing unilateral decrees, ordering the closure of businesses, churches, and schools, restricting personal movement, mandating behavior, and suspending indefinitely basic freedoms. Second, I was and remain stunned-almost frightened-at the acquiescence of the American people to such destructive, arbitrary, and wholly unscientific rules, restrictions, and mandates.”

    -Scott Atlas, February issue of Imprimis

  2. Who lost this state to the Red horde and why are they still calling the shots in the state Republican Party? Clean house from top to bottom, if there’s still time, and call them out. Put unconstitutional government edicts in the courts and keep them there but that’s not going to happen with this present crowd as they hang on to power by cooperating with big-government Democrats No more excuses from professional hand-wringers in the moderate Republicans. There’s no chance they can reform themselves.

    Throw the Bush and Paul Ryan clones over for Trump types. Goodpaster
