Letter to the editor: Your voice can be heard in a new state

Your voice can be heard in a new state
Why the need for Liberty State? To be honest, our state is already split in two. It just hasn’t been formalized yet. East side/West side, sun/rain, agriculture/traffic jams. The list that describes what separates us is longer than word count would allow, so I’ll leave it to you to fill in the rest.
There were many frustrations that led me to LibertyState.org. After the midterm elections I was frustrated. So, I started educating myself, and the more I learned about what was happening, the more mad I became. I wanted a place where you could feel as though your vote counted, your voice was heard, your opinion mattered. Where they didn’t sneak in an unapproved income tax under a different name, where we won’t be faced with an unsustainable 70 percent budget increase inside of the six years the governor has been in office – who decided to attach funding to this year’s budget proposal to fund his campaign travel security.
That’s right, we are being taxed for our governor to campaign for the Democratic presidential nominee. I’m not just getting this information from the media – I went straight to the source. I have been reading the legislation. And you should too. You should absolutely know what is being passed into law. You should make an informed choice.
Which leads me to this: The Grant County chapter of Liberty State is holding a meeting Thursday, April 18, at 6:30 p.m. It is open to the public, and we would like to invite anyone who has questions or is curious about what Liberty State is. This will be held in Ephrata, 124 Enterprise St. SE. This is the second in what will be a series of monthly meetings, each taking place in a different place in Grant County.
