First, before I tear into the ineptitude of government employees, I do want to thank all of those who have shown me their support, courtesy, and respect. Some have done their best attempting to resolve and correct the problems I have brought to light in this blog. Even, going so far as to write and support legislation to change the "law." (I put "law" in quotes because it is not really law at all. Any law that is abhorrent to the Constitution is "null and void of law" according to Marbury v. Madison.) Their help and support has been very much appreciated. Proof of that is in the fact that I have been reluctant to publish some of the names while publishing correspondence and dialogue. I am going to continue to refrain from publishing names of people who seem to be supporting my efforts, even as I dissect their correspondence in an effort to understand their position on my issues. I must admit that I have a hard time understanding how some people can contradict themselves and the principles which they claim to hold in conversations and correspondence with me. I must wonder if those contradictions are deliberate or subconsciously seeking to avoid controversy and avoid sticking their neck out.
Throughout my many battles in this life, I have been alone, standing alone while defending myself and common sense and common decency. I am now going to burn my last bridge, if that is how this supporter of mine wants to view this post. This post may prompt this last government employee, who still speaks to me via email, to stop any further communication. I am not desiring to break off communication and friendship, but I cannot control their decisions and actions. If they take offense, it is on them... I am just trying to do my part in educating the public through this blog. The public needs to know who is holding the reins of government and how they comprehend their duties as legislators, representatives, public servants, etc. I have been standing alone all my life. I don't mind if I am forced to continue doing so...
After I published the September 8, UPDATE, I sent this Email to my last government employed friend who still speaks to me.
HOUSE INTERNET E-MAIL DELIVERY SERVICE
SUBJECT: Man fined $1500.00 for looking for a job.
Thanks for responding to my last email. I really appreciate it! I have another UPDATE which I have sent to my Reps. I really want some movement and resolution to my issues. Please know that I am not finished pestering. And there are some other things I can do to try and get attention and exposure. What if I hang another flier on a private bulletin board? What are your government employees going to do to me if I do that? Put me in jail? Is that what government employees want to do to their neighbors who demand that their constitutionally protected God given rights be supported and upheld by government employees? What will it take to get these issues resolved correctly according to our Supreme Law of the Land?
Sincerely, and I am sincere!
RESPONSE REQUESTED: Russ has requested a response to this message.

Russ, please keep pestering!
Legislatively, nothing will happen until the next session begins on January 14, 2015. That seems like a long way away, but, in reality, we don't have a lot of time to prepare bills and strategy for the coming session.
I know I have said this before, but I will say it again. Legislators don't know what it is like on the other side of the curtain unless you tell them. A corollary to that is that they probably won't be able to divine the solution to the problem unless you find it for them.
Russ, imagine what our situation SHOULD look like. Then within that broad spectrum between that and present day reality, pick a few key things that could be changed to move us in that direction. THOSE are the ideas that can be the foundation for bills that can be introduced in the legislature. These are incremental changes. We didn't get this way in just one session and it is not realistic to believe we can take it back in one.
Put your thinking cap on, study the regulations you've become a victim of, come up with a couple ideas that could become bills, and get prepared to testify in Olympia in the event any of those bill get legs under them.
Hope this helps.
Notice above that this guy is still stuck on writing and passing a bill in the legislature rather than simply abiding by his Oath of Office to support our Supreme Law of the Land. That really bugs me. And then, he wants me to study the regulations and come up with ideas...??? Didn't we elect our reps to do that and to keep government employees and regulations in compliance with our Supreme Law of the Land? Does this guy mean, "If Russ wants to live in a nation that has state and federal constitutions, then Russ needs to study regulations and come up with ideas???" MY F---ING GOODNESS!!! I don't want to waste my time doing that shit! I just want to live in peace unmolested by government employees! I just want my government employees to stay within the constraints placed on them by our constitutions! These idiots(pretended statesmen) have placed themselves on a never-ending goose chase incessantly writing bills, AND HE JUST ASKED ME TO JOIN THEM RATHER THAN SIMPLY SUPPORT AND UPHOLD OUR SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND???!!! Gee... duh... gee... duh... gee... duh... F***!!! I am not getting on their silly goose chase wagon while they pretend to be our statesmen elected to support our state and federal constitutions!!! Okay... sigh... I guess these guys don't have all the connections in their brains hooked up correctly. When you are elected to a government office, you are given and Oath of Office to support our state and federal constitutions, right? Okay... sigh... now have you got that connection hooked up in your brain? You do? Really? Okay... Now let's cement it so that it doesn't become disconnected in your next sentence or thought. Government employees are given an Oath of Office because many men and women have given life and limb in defense of the liberties and rights which are protected in our state and federal constitutions. Got it? "Life and limb" you know? LIFE AND LIMB! Our state and federal constitutions must be very important if people are willing to give life and limb for their preservation.... RIGHT? DO YOU GET THAT? Is that connection in your brain complete and cemented? Yes? Geeze... I hope so! Now stop f***ing with me and do your damn job! Get your government employees out of my face, off my back, and let We the People live in peace and freedom like our fore fathers intended we live. You don't need to write a f***ing bill in order to support our Supreme Law of the Land. Good grief!
So, I wrote him a nice respectful email back:

Thank you so much for allowing me to continue pestering you. I think you may be the last and only person in Washington state government who is willing to talk to me.
I'd like to talk to you about perspectives because, after reading your email the first time, something stuck out in it which I kept dwelling on for days. From the perspective that we have state and federal constitutions, I don't think you realized what you were saying to me. Here is the first lines of our Washington state constitution:
DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
DECLARATION OF RIGHTS
SECTION 1 POLITICAL POWER. All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.
"""GOVERNMENTS ARE ESTABLISHED TO PROTECT AND MAINTAIN INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS."""
----, from your email, my first impression was that you wanted me to do your job for you. (Meaning you want me to protect and maintain individual rights rather than my representatives protecting and maintaining individual rights.)
----, from my perspective, I have been working for 2 years and 11 months to gather enough evidence, information, and simple clarity in my case so that my reps can take the ball from me and do their job as defined in our state constitution, MAINTAIN INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS. That is what we elect representatives to do. And we have a government divided into three branches in order that if one branch fails in its mission, the other branch(s) are there to check and balance. If the legislature, in a time of panic and urgency, passes unconstitutional legislation, the governor is there to veto it, and the courts are there to declare it unconstitutional. See? This can be applied vice versa as well. If the executive branch is out of line with the constitution, the legislators are there to bring it back into compliance. This is why we have constitutions to protect and maintain individual rights. BUT, WE DON'T HAVE REPS WHO ARE WILLING TO BRING OUR SUPREME LAWS OF THE LAND TO THE FLOOR OF THE LEGISLATURE. Perhaps they don't know how, or they don't have the gonads...
So, yes, I would love to work with my reps on a serious effort to bring government employees back under our state and federal constitutions. Whether it be by introducing new legislation, testifying before the legislature, or by educating the public and the government employees. However, as you can see from my defense over the span of 3 years, government employees and representatives really don't want little ol' Russ to educate them. I don't have the credentials, the platform, or the common respect of the government employees and representatives. However, our representatives (YOU) are given the credentials by being elected, and given the platform in the office they hold, and given the common respect by being allowed to say their piece on the floor of the legislature and through other means of taxpayer provided communications, resources, and connections.
See? From my perspective, what more can I do? It feels like I am trying to push wet noodles across a table while the noodles bombard me with excuses and delay, and delay... Obviously, if no one has the courage to stand up for our Supreme Laws of the Land in our government bodies, we won't have a Supreme Law of the Land anymore.
So. okay. I will propose some legislation and write an introductory speech for the floor of the legislature and write a concluding summary to the proposed legislation. My next e-mail will be that effort.
Please note that I have delivered a thorough ass whoopin to the government employees involved in my case. They know it, and the last thing they want is for people and legislators to pick up my ball and keep running it into complete victory and exposure. They are just people like you and I and they cannot argue with our civic duty to support and uphold our constitutions because much blood and treasure has been given in defense of our liberty and rights protected in those constitutions. All they can do is play their childish games trying to discourage, con, and intimidate me while hoping the whole ridiculous episode remains under the radar. If you and others would contact the players directly and ask the right questions with confidence and courage, you would have them shaking in their boots. Why do we have constitutions if no one is willing to use them and abide by them? However, if some of the players are confident that they can divert you, distract you, and con you, then they will continue their efforts to shut down discussion.
Which brings me back to this; these people and people like them have been successful for the last 50 years in shutting down discussion of our constitutions and the proper role of government. This is why it has taken so long for them to bring state and federal governments to the out-of-control situation we are currently in. While conservative constitutional reps like yourself have been seeking "incremental changes" the liberals have been scoring touchdown after touchdown with THEIR "incremental changes." We do have a defense and it is in the fact that Americans have given life and limb for the liberty and rights protected in our Supreme Laws of the Land. Government has expanded WAY TOO FAR already. It is time for a correction. I am sure ----- understands what I am saying as he is a veteran who took the oath defend our constitutions from all enemies foreign and domestic.
Once again, thanks for letting me pester you. And please run this email past -----. I just want to encourage, inspire, and be part of the solution...
See? Wasn't that a nice letter? Well, see if you can decipher what I got in response:
No, I don’t want you to do my job for me, or ------'s. Just do yours. How’s that?
It was often acknowledged by the Founders that unless the people are knowledgeable of their rights under God and know the content of the Constitution and Declaration, that freedom cannot be maintained. And that is precisely what has happened in the United States of America. In our current state of bureaucratic tyranny, most folks are walking around believing they are free! Yet, and I quote, “All political power is inherent in the people…”.Where the power resides, so does the responsibility. The government is the servant, not the master.
Like you, statesmen like -so and so- are in a small minority because the make-up of the legislature is a reflection of the people. And yes, we have found many of the representatives to be equally as ill-informed as their constituents.
So you have a job in addition to your regular “citizen-job” of insisting upon government staying within the bounds of the state and federal constitutions and demanding unrestricted rights, under God, as outlined in the Constitution. You have assumed a position of rare insight into this tyranny and that insight must be shared with others. And I will state again that any peaceful, constitutional remedy will be relatively slow and incremental.
At a private meeting recently, -------- noted that he sees our gains over the last five years as astounding. Yes,gains. He travels all over the country speaking. He has spoken to folks like us in the USA over 300 times in the last two years. He has a unique perspective as a citizen of ---------who is sounding a warning to the people of America. We are witnessing a race between the keepers, who wish to slam the door on us, and the people who are beginning to rise up, educate themselves, and take action.
Again, Rep/Sen. ----- has pushed the envelope in Olympia far beyond what any legislator has in the last thirty years. He needs more of the people behind his efforts. You know, as conservatives we find candidates, work hard to get them elected, and when they lose we go home. And if they win we go home. Therein lies the problem. When they say “We are behind you, Mr. Representative.” Yes. W-a-a-ay behind him.
Your job is not a big one, Russ, but it is a very important one. You have the ability to articulate both the problem and the solution.
You don’t have to go knocking on doors to do that; just be alert to opportunities to share your predicament and encourage others to become fully informed citizens.
Oh, and by the way, government employees, even if they agree with you in principle, have a vested interest in the status quo. That’s a tough audience that will produce little fruit.
You are part of a big movement, Russ. Thank you for your contribution.
No, I don’t want you to do my job for me, or -----’s. Just do yours. How’s that?
Okay, that is pretty easily said, but difficult to prove by your other statements and lack of action.
It was often acknowledged by the Founders that unless the people are knowledgeable of their rights under God and know the content of the Constitution and Declaration, that freedom cannot be maintained.
Not quite right... It was acknowledged by the founders that unless the people maintain wisdom and responsibility based on morality and religion, then unscrupulous men will gain control of government and pervert the constitutions and enslave We the People. We the People do know our rights under God and preserved in our constitutions. It is the representatives who deceive the public in their election campaigns promising to restrain government, and then after they are elected, they do not restrain government. IT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR OVER 50 YEARS! Why won't our representatives do what they promise to do in their campaigns and in their Oath of Office? We the people have been trying to vote in competent statesmen, but once they are elected they freeze up with fear and get wobbly legs and go along with the out of control bureaucracies and their pack of deceitful government paid lawyers, etc. Your next sentence supports what I just said.
In our current state of bureaucratic tyranny,
See? The inmates are running the asylum....
most folks are walking around believing they are free!
Yes, we are free. We have constitutions protecting our rights and freedoms... but we don't have statesmen protecting our constitutions from the bureaucrats and lawyers who pervert the constitutions. By the way, most folks are like me. They simply want to be left alone under a constitutional government. It is a minority of vocal idiots who have sought to misuse government authority for their own self worth, prestige, and delusions. So, when people like you (conservatives who say they support our constitutions) are elected to office, you let the idiots run all over you and you try to play their game by their rules... Your next paragraph supports what I just said above:
And yes, we have found many of the representatives to be equally as ill-informed as their constituents.
Yes, I know. I just said that. Back to this sentence:
Yet, and I quote, “All political power is inherent in the people…”.Where the power resides, so does the responsibility. The government is the servant, not the master.
Yes, all political power is rooted in the People's God given power, derived from God, and not delegated to government by God. Government has no god given rights. The rights and authority given to government comes from the people AND WE THE PEOPLE WROTE CONSTITUTIONS TO ENUMERATE AND LIMIT THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF GOVERNMENT! But government employees and reps are not abiding by our Supreme Law of the Land... We the people are abiding by the Supreme Law of the Land, but government employees are not. How do We the People fix that? Huh? ...How? WE ELECT PEOPLE WHO PROMISE TO SUPPORT OUR CONSTITUTIONS TO OFFICE! ...That is how we fix it. BUT WHEN OUR REPS repeatedly and repeatedly ACT DISHONESTLY PREFERRING TO DECEIVE THEMSELVES BY BREAKING THEIR OATH OF OFFICE AFTER WE ELECT THEM, then what can We the People Do? When government employees pretend to be acting within the constraints of the Supreme Law of the Land while they clearly are not...what kind of delusion grips them? How do they do that? I'll tell you how they do that? They do it by HATING PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO BRING UP OUR SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND!!! We used to have laws against treason, the trashing and disregard of our Supreme Law of the Land, but we the people do not have reps, jurists, and attorneys who will hold government employees accountable to their Oath of Office. It is la-la land in the world of government! Nobody has righteous courage and convictions in government! All that government employees have is deception and denial of reality. They even attempt to cast spells on We the People by using deception and propaganda and phony justifications for expanding government. Government employees attempt to cast spells on We the People to blind us and discourage us. Here is proof:
"Naked castings into the constitutional sea do not warrant judicial consideration or discussion"
See? The AAG attempted to cast a spell on me by using that nonsense! Good grief! It didn't work on me, but it did work on the Administrative Law Judge. The government employee fell for it, but We the people didn't. I didn't! As I said in my previous UPDATE, the government employees have spun a web of deceit and trapped themselves in it. They are the ones who need the epiphany back to reality under our constitutions. We the people are in reality! WE THE PEOPLE HAVE NOT VOTED TO THROW AWAY OUR CONSTITUTIONS, BUT OUR GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES HAVE THROWN IT AWAY ALREADY!!!
Now, you said, "Where the power resides, so does the responsibility." DON'T BLAME WE THE PEOPLE! Blame those who have usurped the power of We the People by disregarding our constitutions. Geeze! Why do I need to write this stuff? Are you under a spell? Once again, it has not been We the People who have written and passed bill after bill after bill that flies in the face of our constitutions. It has been the dishonest representatives who have ignored their Oath of Office and passed bill after bill after bill that grows government miles and miles outside the powers granted to it by We the People. I am starting to wonder if you are one of the dishonest politicians.
"The government is the servant, not the master."
Does the "servant" serve We the People well by disregarding our state and federal constitutions? WHEN ARE THE PEOPLE WE ELECT TO GOVERNMENT OFFICE GOING TO ABIDE BY THEIR OATH OF OFFICE AND COME OUT OF DELUDING THEMSELVES PRETENDING TO BE ABIDING BY OUR CONSTITUTIONS? Please have that epiphany. Please wake up and come out from under the spell cast on your mind. Please open your mind's eye to see the simple truth, and help your associates in government to do the same. We the People are not at fault. And that is proven by the fact that We the People have not repealed our constitutions, our simple and clear contract with government employees. Rather, government employees have ignored our constitutions... deluded themselves, and trapped themselves in their own la-la land.
So you have a job in addition to your regular “citizen-job” of insisting upon government staying within the bounds of the state and federal constitutions and demanding unrestricted rights, under God, as outlined in the Constitution. You have assumed a position of rare insight into this tyranny and that insight must be shared with others.
Yep! I am doing that right now!
And I will state again that any peaceful, constitutional remedy will be relatively slow and incremental.
And it will be even slower if you continue to ignore your Oath of Office which you made to support our state and federal constitutions. IDIOT! ...Pretending to be doing all that can be done to preserve and defend our Supreme Law of the Land. Why do you hamstring yourself by pretending you need a majority to stand with you in support of your Oath of Office? Go get some friends to stand with you if you need them. I'll stand with you, but you gotta get off your ass! It is like "The Emperor Has No Clothes." When the child said it, it was not "incremental." It was huge and almost instantaneous. Just get the gonads to say the simple truth. Just like I am doing!
The rest of the letter does not need to be commented on.
So, what will I do next? Shall I go hang up another flier and see what happens? Do I write a speech and propose some legislation? Would they take me serious if I did propose legislation? Has this friend unfriended me?
Geeze... why do I have to write this stuff? It is like pushing wet noodles!
