Vote Englund to SAVE Washington

The future of Washington hangs on one election this year!

If you live in Kirkland, Redmond, Woodinville, Sammamish or Duvall or know someone who does -— a vote for Jinyoung England is the ONLY hope of preventing a state income tax!

The Democrat, Manka Dhingra, works in Seattle and brings her Seattle politics home with her. That means INCOME TAX for all (and lots of other devastating changes!)

Don’t let the Democrats turn the tide in Olympia! Vote NOW for Jinyoung Englund.

You’ll save Washington State if you do.

Will you fund an Englund victory by providing $5, $10 or $20 for this most important cause?

WSRP Responds to Seattle City Council Vote on Income Tax

Bellevue, July 10 – The Washington State Republican Party issued the following press release today:

Income Tax for All is the Real Goal 

The Washington State Republican Party (WSRP) and call for the overtaxed citizens of Seattle, on behalf of all citizens of the state, to forcefully resist a new income tax passed by the Seattle City Council today. This law is unconstitutional, illegal, and against the voter’s will expressed nine(9) times at the ballot box and it deserves nothing less than civil disobedience—that is, refusal to comply, file or pay.

Make no mistake, this poorly conceived bill is not a tax on the rich.  It is a thinly veiled attempt to test the state constitutional limits of an income tax for all. The true intent is expensive litigation which takes the case to the State Supreme Court. All Seattle residents will have to cover the multi-million dollars cost of the bill’s legal defense.

Working citizens take no comfort in a tax that singles out high-income residents, as they know that the small percentage of earners who qualify for the tax cannot sustain its costs. As revenue projections go unmet, bracket creep will eventually embrace the majority of tax payers—who are the working middle class. Even before the bill was signed, the income tax was raised to 2.25%  in recognition that revenues would not be high enough at the original 2% level.

Besides being unconstitutional, illegal and against the will of the voters, this bill has a number of other pitfalls defined in the attachment, The Dirty Dozen: 12 Reasons Why the Seattle Income Tax is a Disaster. Among them is the required $20M bureaucracy needed to enforce the tax collection. All citizens will be required to report their income to the new department of some 100 employees who may in fact, be their neighbors. This invasion of privacy is ripe for abuse of sensitive information heretofore known only at the highest levels of the IRS.

All citizens of the state are encouraged to:

  • Go to to sign a petition against the Seattle income tax and state income tax.
  • Contact Mayor Murray’s office urging him to veto the bill (206-684-4000).
  • Contact the Seattle City Council members who voted for the bill and register your complaint.
    • Councilwoman Lisa Herbold (206-684-8803)
    • Councilman Bruce Harrell (206-684-8804)
    • Councilwoman Kshama Sawant (206-684-8016)
    • Councilman Rob Johnson (206-684-8808)
    • Councilwoman Debora Juarez (206-684-8805)
    • Councilman Mike O’Brien (206-684-8800)
    • Councilwoman Sally Bagshaw (206-684-8801)
    • Councilman Tim Burgess (206-684-8806)
    • Councilwoman Lorena Gonzalez (206-684-8802)

The July 4th Document

As we enjoy Independence Day with family, friends and fireworks, it’s important to remember that unlike any other country in the world, our premier national holiday doesn’t celebrate a battle, royalty or religion. It celebrates a document!

A few years ago I was invited to speak to the Common Sense Society of Hungary, a newly formed group of college students and graduates who were admirers of America. Their name derived from the famous pamphlet “Common Sense” written in 1776 by patriot Thomas Paine who declared “the cause of America is, in great measure, the cause of all mankind.”

These young Hungarians, living in a newly formed democracy less than 20 years young, were proudly handing out their first pamphlet—a Hungarian translation of the Declaration of Independence! They looked to Jefferson’s immortal words to help them “transition from a post-communist state towards a truly free and prosperous society.”

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.  

Our July 4th document shares the “cause of America” which “is in great measure, the cause of all mankind.” Let’s celebrate!
