Legislative Session 2007

In the coming days I hope to post updates on the many events that transpire here in the Washington State Legislature.

As an aide to a Republican State Senator, I witness all manner of behind the scenes conversation, debate, argument, and the many other forms of politicking that you’ll never see on your states equivalent of C-SPAN.

As a pretext, I should share that the Republican party in Washington State fared none too better in the past elections than in the rest of the nation and thus we have seen some pretty startling legislation this year with Democratic supermajority in both the House and Senate. Granted, I'd be the first to tell you that the Republican Caucus isn’t the political salvation of conservatives everywhere, but I’ve witnessed firsthand the progression of the liberal agenda on the State level when Democrats are in power and frankly, it’s not a pretty sight. Now, I can’t speak in this regard when it comes to our Federal counter parts, as there seems to be a rather large blurry line between D’s and R’s, but it certainly hold true when we are talking about State legislatures.

Anyway, I think you all might be interested in hearing about some of the brazenly bold moves the folks on the other side have pulled off as well as hearing about some of the courageous stands that been made on behalf of traditional rights and values.

As always, your comments are welcome and appreciated.
