61&#37; of eligible voters in our state did not give a ****. 65% of King county voters did not give a **** that Senator Kline would be in Olympia for another term telling us his version of "rational" gun control laws. What a surprise. :(

Yes, it occured to me right after I posted. But I am not impressed so far. It would be nice to see at least 80&#37; turnout.

I have lost what little faith I had in WA politics. Amazing how the whole state goes red, yet thanks to king and pierce we are a blue state.
 
Oregon feels your pain... it seems Multnomuh (in particular), and Washington counties dictate the rest of us into being a "blue state".

I hope somebody is working on a "genetic bomb" that attacks those with that recently identified gene (or was it an extra chromosome?... LOL) I heard about in the news, that leftys seem to have... :D

So you feel your votes should count for more because you don't live in the city? You vote in your best interests why is it bad for others to do the same?

I feel it's wrong for people who live in the rain to tell desert dwellers to stop using river water to grow food. It's just as wrong for the large numbers in King County to dictate policy to those living in the other 90% of the state.

I feel your pain, I am all for saving little fishy's but not at the expense of our hardworking farmers. Geographically speaking, your right about 10% dictating policy to the other 90% unfortunately (I would say fortunately) we don't hand out votes by how much land you own so in reality it's actually 90% dictate policies of the other 10%.

Before I get in trouble for causing this thread to go sideways,

+1 :s0155: More people need to vote!!!

Same thing in Oregon. Mult. Co. decides the fate of the entire state. People who haven't been east of Gresham or south of Salem should not be allowed to decide things that do not even concern the city dwellers (issues on hunting, fishing, logging, etc.)
Personally, I blame the Californian refugees with their (mostly) liberal views :s0131:

Multnomah and King County should just become their own state (call it SeaPort or something) and they can become the miniature los angeles they are striving for.

So as a city dweller I have no concern over hunting, fishing, and logging? That's a pretty myopic view of things.

No, and those probably aren't the greatest examples to use, but folks who live in the downtown areas who have a total of 4 trees in a 2 block radius shouldn't kill our logging industry because they think there "won't be any trees left". People who've never hunted in their lives shouldn't be telling hunters they can't use dogs for hunting cougars (I didn't get to hunt deer this year because they've mostly been killed by cats in the area I go) because it's "cruel" or "mean" or "unfair". We are fortunate to live in a state that has very diverse areas, wetlands, desert, mountains, flatlands, etc.

What concerns me is the myopic view of the huge population clusters in the big cities (not all of them obviously, there are folks like you who live there) deciding the laws that affect people in other parts of the state without knowing the situation those folks are in that cause them to want a law passed or repealed. On the flip side, people who live in fossil shouldn't be voting on Metro issues and the like.

How is it in anyone's best interest to ban the guns least used in crime? Registered MG,s SBR/SBS are the types of firearms least associated with violent crime in WA, but for some reason they were made contraband in 1994.

Silencers continue to be illegal to use even though there are no other legal methods of reducing the noise of firearms in the state. This is also in no one's best interest. But people voted in those Reps that place these unreasonable restrictions upon us.

It's not that city dwellers are bad, but most lefty's don't have a clue where the food comes from. Wheat doesn't come from the pastry shop, steak believe it or not doesn't grow in those styren containers- it comes from cows. Cows we have to kill(sorry)

The eastside of washington and oregon have far different economic and societal views then the western metropolitan areas. I am not a redneck, I have been different places and countries. Different areas have different political needs, ours is mostly conservative.
