We need Republicans in office

This year the Democrats will add 76,000 pages of new Federal Regulations for everyone.

This will make the total cost of Federal Regulations to be 26 percent of all goods and services.  Wouldn't it be nice to cut those regulations to essential ones? That could save you up to 20 percent of your income.

It would take a conservative Republican in Congress to start reducing these regulations. At the local level, Kitsap County Democrat county commissioners want to criminalize violations of their huge numbers of unnecessary regulations on your own property. Most of these unnecessary regulations wouldn't be known of by property owners till they get arrested on criminal charges.

We need a Republican on the county commission to stop these “control freak Democrats.”  We Republicans have excellent candidates for both positions. For Congress, I hope you will vote for Martin McClendon and for Kitsap County Commissioner I recommend you vote for Ed Wolfe.
