Meet my friend, and candidate, Beau Gunderson

Do you live the 46th legislative district in WA?
Are you sick of the same ol', same ol' in Olympia?
Would you like a breath of fresh air and new ideas in our state legislature?

If you answered yes to these questions, then I'd like to introduce you to my personal friend Beau Gunderson who is running for State Representative, position 2, in the 46th district. He is a really good guy who would make a far superior member of the legislature than the current incumbent.

He is running against Phyllis Gutierrez Kenney, who has been in office in her current position since... 1997. Also, she proudly touts, as an accomplishment, that she is on the board of the National Council of La Raza, a racist organization that actively promotes ideas like "taking back" California and our other border states. As I am Hispanic myself, I find their organization especially offensive, racist, exclusionary, and dangerous. The guy in the video below is part of La Raza, so take a look for yourself. My grandparents, Jesus and Philomena, would be so ashamed of this group, and people like Phyllis Gutierrez Kenney for being a part of it.

Does the 46th district in Seattle really want to be represented by someone who chooses to not only affiliate with, but who actively works for, a racist organization that call themselves, "The Race?"

Her bio also lists her legislative priorities which includes economic development and education. Considering Washington's abysmal education system (despite throwing ever-more money at the problem) and our declining economy and increased unemployment, I'd say she's not really meeting her priorities.

As Beau gets his campaign up and running, I will continue to update you. And please friend him on Facebook and Twitter and let's see if we can get him elected!

"I fought for you"

If you are in the mood to get a little emotional, watch the video below. It was emailed to me by a friend. Watching it made me realize how grateful I am that Gen. Petraeus is now back in command so that our men and women don't have to fight a war shackled by ridiculous and ineffective rules of engagement. I mean, why even put them in harms way if they can't defend themselves?
