OVER THE INSTRUMENTS “THEY”? HAVE CREATED?

The first big hurdle for we the people is identifying the “THEY” that in FACT DID creat these INSTRUMENTS.

THE PEOPLE OF THIS STATE DO NOT YIELD THEIR SOVEREIGNTY TO THE AGENCIES THAT SERVE THEM?

SOVEREIGNTY definition added for emphasis
INDEPENDENCE? the right to self-government without interference from OUTSIDE?

“THE PUGET SOUND PARTNERSHIP” HAS TURNED INTO WHAT?
TRIBES? PLUS A MULTITUDE OF NON-PROFITS?

A MULTITUDE OF NON-PROFITS? ARE A MULTITUDE OF SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS LOBBYING AND PROMOTING OUTSIDE SPECIAL INTERESTS,
LIKE THE UNITED NATIONS AGENDA 21.


TRIBES ARE A SOVEREIGN NATION?

RCW 42.56.030
THE PEOPLE INSIST ON REMAINING INFORMED SO THAT THEY MAY MAINTAIN CONTROL OVER THE INSTRUMENTS THAT THEY HAVE CREATED.

IT IS ALREADY IMPOSSIBLE FOR THE PEOPLE TO CONTROL THE INSTRUMENTS THAT THEY (our public servants) HAVE CREATED.

HOW ARE WE THE PEOPLE SUPPOSED TO CONTROL A MULTITUDE OF SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS LOBBYING AND PROMOTING OUTSIDE SPECIAL INTERESTS?

THAT WE DID NOT CREATE?

CONTROL definition added for emphasis

RESTRAIN OR LIMIT SOMETHING to limit or restrict somebody or something, e.g. in expression, occurrence, or rate of increase

OVERSEE FINANCIAL AFFAIRS finance to regulate the financial affairs of a business or other large organization

The WA STATE LEGISLATURE as our public servants, is responsible TO THE PEOPLE for the enforcement of
RCW 42.56.030 for PUBLIC POLICY THAT PROTECTS OUR SOVEREIGNTY AND INDEPENDENCE. GUARANTEES OUR right to self-government without interference from OUTSIDE.

AND TO ASSURE THAT THE PUBLIC INTEREST WILL BE SERVED BY PROTECTING THE PUBLIC FROM OUTSIDE INTERESTS.
