Many of us are shaking our heads wondering about our representation is in Olympia. Who holds these Legislator’s accountable other than the election process? Don’t have the money for litigation? Here in Washington State we have the Evergreen Freedom Foundation who tackles many of the difficult issues we are bumping about as we advance forward to defeat the NAIS. This morning on their site I ran into the Ten Minute Citizen. I urge each of you to adopt this commitment to either educate and/or activate. Freedom takes sacrifice.
What does it mean to be a Ten Minute Citizen? The preservation of liberty depends on citizens deliberately taking action. We are urging you to invest the equivalent of ten minutes per day, six days a week (one hour per week or four hours per month), in being an informed and active citizen. Is this too much to invest in citizenship? We hope you and tens of thousands of others think it is reasonable.
A new legislative session is about to begin and your involvement is crucial. Our representatives are facing a huge deficit, and government grows larger by the day. It is up to us to help legislators make tough, responsible decisions. We can start that process by by becoming informedâ€”then we can take action.
