Good time and conversation this morning with the 17th LD PCOs at Coffee Villa!
We discussed many topics ranging from I-5 congestion and bridge options, to prioritizing WA state budget items according to WA laws, the importance of School Board Meeting attendance, and of course some national issues as well.
Look forward to having even more 17th LD PCOs join us next time for Java Junkies - the best Political Junkies drinkin' java get together in the 17th LD!

Political Theory of Freedom:
Law is the organized defense of the natural rights of individuals; it is to protect persons, liberties, and properties, and to cause justice to reign over all. The law must seek not to provide benefit to any group or individual by imposing loss or disadvantage to other groups or individuals, but must seek only to provide to individuals protection and justice from the damage caused by others. Laws of Nature entitle the freewill of Men. It is only by contract that a delegation of powers can be given to a presiding group to secure and protect the unalienable Rights of individuals. Thus, all powers of government and law come from the individual and are bound by contract.
As stated in the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed”.
