I’m A Glass-Is-Half-Full Guy. Even With AG Persecution, I’ve Got A Lot To Be Thankful For

by | Nov 26, 2020

Sometimes you really have to squint to see silver linings. But it’s what I’ve done all my life.

I’m a glass-is-half-full guy — always have been, always will be.

The 8 brutal years of investigation, litigation, and persecution of me and my family by AG Bob Ferguson has been awful. There’s no sugar coating it — the whole thing has cost me a lot.

But today is Thanksgiving and so I look at my life and our political movement and realize how extraordinarily lucky I am:

* Karen, Jackson, Jeremy, Riley, and all the members of my immediate and extended family are a great source of comfort. Even with all the stress and strain and pressure, we still love one another, support one another, and want the best for one another. I’m incredibly lucky to have them in my life.

* I have thousands of friends, allies, and supporters who have allowed me to pursue my calling which is fighting for the taxpayers here in the state of Washington. My political activities — initiative campaigns, our collective lobbying of the Legislature, my race for Governor, and our lawsuits against Inslee’s tyranny — have only been possible thanks to all of you and your heartfelt prayers and financial support. Together, we have accomplished extraordinary things. Together, we have a powerful voice. Together, we will continue to fight and win for taxpayers.

* My time out on the campaign trail this year with my daughter Riley was life-affirming for me. Whether it was when I was running for Governor or serving the Culp campaign, our time together will be something I will cherish forever.

* I’m 54 years old, pretty darn healthy, and a very optimistic person. I believe God has a plan for all of us. Friends often remind me that the Lord never gives you more than you can handle. It’s great comfort to know that He believes I have enough strength to withstand what’s happening. 

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

I love you all.
