Letter: Thank you for SAPO passage, Columbia County
Thank you, Columbia County
This past November Columbia County stepped to the ballot box and did some wonderful things and, I believe, set some records. The people of this county passed the Second Amendment Preservation Ordinance (SAPO) protecting their rights, those of their children, and sending a strong message to Salem that they may not have our fundamental, inherent, and unalienable rights.
We didn't just pass the SAPO here; the SAPO was on 10 ballots throughout the state and was verified in eight of those counties. Now, 13 counties in the state have the SAPO in one form or another as their county law — and it is just the beginning. If our employees won't do their job to protect our rights, we will do it for them.
We the people also elected Sheriff Brian Pixley who was the only one who went on the record as "The People's Sheriff," pledging to uphold the SAPO and defend our rights. If Sheriff Pixley honors his oath of office, and his promises, we couldn't have hoped for a better sheriff.
We tried to get rid of the hypocrite Rep. Brad Witt, D-Clatskanie, and came very close with challenger Brian Stout. Brian had very little money and was going up against a 14-year do-nothing incumbent, who wants to steal rights from young veterans. Brian got over 14,000 votes and had the highest percentages with the least amount of money in the state.
The last I checked, 81 percent of Republicans had turned out to vote, which was the highest in the state and, I believe, an all-time record in this county.
This county proved that your vote counts ... we will get rid of Witt in 2020.
I want to thank everyone who helped with the SAPO and showed up to vote. The Ameriphobes and some who are just ignorant about what rights are, are not happy with our success. Some of these people have been trying to block our effort at every level, but liberty has always been popular, and always will be preferable to slavery. Our rights are just that: ours. And it is not up for debate. Every law that Infringes on your natural born rights are illegal and meant to control you.
We must remain vigilant, because people like crazy Gov. Kate Brown and hypocrite Witt are catering to far left radical communists and are planning to assault us again in the loooong legislative session coming up. Prepare for IP 43-like unconstitutional legislation and more plunder of your property to be pushed.
