The Election In Washington State
From my libertarian perspective, our elections in Washington State came to a very good result.
We took the United States House, which will act as a solid control upon the excesses of President Obama and his allies in the Senate.
We overwhelmingly rejected the Bill Gates Sr. state income tax plan.
We repealed the increased taxes passed by the legislature earlier this year.
We made it virtually impossible for the legislature to increase taxes in 2011/12.
Indeed our votes will starve the beast that is the government of Washington State.
It was far from an overwhelming victory, many good candidates and measures lost, but on the whole the voters of Washington State made a strong stand for freedom and against statism. We can be proud.
