Vote for Angel to guard our liberties

Today, our laws and government agencies use the environmental concerns of the unscrupulous to usurp the liberty and property rights of those who own property.

An example is the gopher — falsely used — as a reason to stop ranchers in Thurston County from using their multi-generational ranches from ranching.

The state, through Growth Management Act and the Shoreline Management Act, use environmental concerns, with false findings,  to dictate what shrubs can be planted on ones property.

The coal trains and ports are harassed by excessive agency rules, using false environmental science, because of the environmentalist that support the Democrats who control these agencies. This causes there to be fewer jobs.

The remedy to this taking of our property rights away from us is to vote the progressive, liberal Democrats out of office. I am recommending Jan Angel for the 26th Legislative District senate race in November. She has a 33-page bill to protect  the property rights of property owners that was stopped by Democrats in the state House.

Let’s  vote  for Jan Angel to guard our liberties in the halls of government.
