I AM UNAFRAID TO
TAKE ON CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES

Politicians generally avoid controversial issues if they can. Why take the risk if taking the position might turn away people who otherwise would vote for you. take-courage-nc

This would apply doubly to a difficult issue, such as the following:

implementing door-to-door transit using UberX technology flex vans, which would reduce traffic congestion and save millions of dollars;

commercial air service at Paine Field, which both John and Dave support and which I oppose;

banning smart meters, which open our homes to hacking and which can harm health, when there are better alternatives;

joining the effort to regulate or ban coal and oil trains;

housing the homeless, which is the right thing to do and which will save millions of dollars;

building a fiber optic internet, which will attract high-tech businesses;

halting the spraying of Roundup (now declared to be a Type 2A carcinogen), and helping farmers convert to more profitable organic agriculture;

facilitating salmon recovery by stopping the dumping of salmon-killing fluoride and salmon-killing Roundup into the watershed;

ending the absurd vice of adding so-called fluoride to drinking water.

Also, politicians may not understand such complex issues.

My opponents are ignoring these issues. Is it because they do not agree with them? because they do not understand them? because they were not even aware that the county could do something about these issues until we raised them?

More later.

Why I am running

  • Janna Meyer

    Hello Mr. Deal,
    I read the article that you wrote you wrote about the vaccination philosophical exemption legislation up for vote soon; it was published on State of the Nation. http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=12072

    I was impressed. I was aware of most of that information already, as I have been researching vaccines since before my son was born seven years ago today. He is a happy, smart, strong boy with ZERO health problems (aside from some mild seasonal allergies). I am so glad that I erred on the side of caution when he was little and gave myself time to read, and read and read. The more I read, the more sure I became that I wanted none of it. Kudos for putting such clear arguments and well-cited information together.

    My question to you is…what can we – vaccination choice advocates – do to fight this massive power grab? I’ve written to my Senator but I really don’t think it will help. Is there any legal loophole or class action lawsuit that we could file with some court somewhere? Even if we lost, it could buy us time…time to educate others…and it would bring vaccine effectiveness and safety under close scrutiny.

    I also wonder is there anyway that we citizens can scrutinize those who introduced HB 2009 to see if they have any ties to any pharmaceutical companies? I think it’s really important that they prove that there are ZERO conflicts of interest here.

    Anyway, just wanted to thank you for taking a stand for freedom and personal sovereignty. Please let us know how we can help fight this.

    Thank you,
    Janna Meyer
    Camas, WA
