Today's show was pre-recorded prior to Tim Eyman's announcement to run for the office of governor for Washington State.

The November General Election is over. The people voted to restore $30 Car Tabs. King County and the Mayor of Seattle are mad as H-E-double hockey sticks. What next? Tim Eyman and Glen Morgan talk about the voter approved upset for $30 Car Tabs and other amazing stories of how "We the People," can be the change we want and need when we show up.

Host Kris Halterman will discuss the 2019 Election Results with Vincet Buys and Charlie Crabtree.

Why did you vote to lower the car tab taxes?
1) You don't like car tab taxes, but you are OK with other kinds of taxes?
2) You don't like it when agencies pull shenanigans with how the determine car values?
3) You think our car tab taxes have been spent unwisely.
4) Of all the increases in taxes this year, this was the only one you could cut.

WOW!!! The tin ear of our elected officials is really something to behold.

It really takes a lot to get through to the Democrats who are running our state. They really do not believe that we have been taxed too much, that there is a limit to the taxes we will pay without concrete results. That we have had enough of taxes that only fund more red tape for the rest of us. It is not just the Car tabs, take a look at the advisory votes on the tax increases from the past Democratic controlled legislature. There is no confidence out here that we will get what we are paying for.

Debate rules for Whatcom County Sheriff:

There are a few ground rules I need to cover to ensure that the debate is fair and gives valuable insight into each of you as you ask the voters/listeners for their vote.

There are a lot of incumbents who chose not to run for re-election, leaving numerous open seats for new people and new ideas. On the campaign trail the candidates meet a lot of new people and hear directly from them what is important.
