Voter Remorse So Soon?

By Cindy Alia, November 16, 2020

“The urge to save humanity is almost always a false face for the urge to rule it.” ---H.L. Mencken.

A plan by any other name is not liberty!  Those who voted to re-elect Jay Inslee are in part responsible for resurecting Proclamation 20-25, which first reared its devastating head with the COVID restrictions Inslee promulgated early in 2020.  Will the voters feel remorse when they feel the economic downfall soon to follow?  In other words, will you miss your favorite remaining restaurant, hair stylist, coffee shop, or any other independently owned small business?  Will their employees miss their paychecks, especially just before our Holiday Season?

Cary Condotta Co-founder of Restore Washington Discusses Initiative 1114

Recently, your CAPR Webinar team had the opportunity to have a conversation with Cary Condotta about Initiative 1114, The 14 day Emergency Powers Act !

We must Restore the Balance of Power to We the People  This initiative will do that by limiting the Emergency Powers Act in Washington State Law.  I-1114 limits emergency Proclamations issued by the Governor to no longer than 14 days unless extended by a vote of the Legislature. The Legislature may not extend a proclamation through mere letters from leadership, but must vote. No individual extension may exceed fourteen days.
