Letter: Tell state to get its hands out of your pocket with all its taxes

April 26, 2013 

Washington has long been the front-runner in the American race toward all-out tyranny through inappropriate and unconstitutional taxes.

Many times the voters of Washington have told Olympia that we will not pay ever-increasing taxes and receive ever-decreasing services. As many times, Olympia has effectively flipped us the middle finger, taken the food out of our children's mouths, the clothing off their backs and the books out of their classrooms.

Gov. Chris Gregoire once held the distinction of being the supreme master of this art, but now it appears that she is being schooled by Gov. Jay Inslee, the ultimate government crook.

I encourage all readers to take a look at what he's planning. Write your state representatives and state senator and call the governor's office at 360-902-4111 and tell them to get their hands out of our pockets.
