“Tim Eyman on his 2021 plans….he’s not going anywhere, plans to fight Inslee’s Income Tax and Inslee’s Carbon Tax.”

Yes, that’s me 32 years ago tossing a guy twice my size at a WSU fraternity event. It’s a perfect metaphor for what we can accomplish together next year — and that’s to toss Inslee’s Tax Schemes.

Here’s how we’re going to protect taxpayers next year.

Regardless of who gets elected and which politicians control the levers of government, we will always have a need for vigorous citizen activism. I will never stop doing that. My run for Governor only enhanced my commitment to fight for our country and our state.

I love Washington – I was born and raised in Yakima, spent 4 wonderful years in Pullman getting my WSU business degree, and now live on the westside in beautiful Bellevue. I’ve fought for taxpayers for 22 years – I’m not going anywhere, I’m here to stay.

Unfortunately, despite my best efforts to help Loren Culp in his run for Governor, Inslee got a 3rd term. It’s a gut punch, that’s for sure.

As for legislative races, Olympia will be controlled by the most socialist kamikaze group of Democrats ever. We’re talkin’ Kshama Sawant / Bernie Sanders socialists.

There’s now more than enough Seattle-centric Democrats to deliver Inslee’s Holy Grail: a brutally expensive Income Tax or a horribly costly Carbon Tax. OR BOTH!

Inslee’s Income Tax: they’ve got the votes.

Inslee’s Carbon Tax: they’ve got the votes.

What’s the only thing standing in their way? Me. And all of you. Together.

In anticipation of exactly this situation, I’ve been working with legislators and attorneys for years on specific initiatives that’ll give the voters the chance to overturn any income tax or carbon tax that Inslee and the Democrats impose. Both are ready to go:

WE DON’T WANT AN INCOME TAX. Official description: “This measure would prohibit state and local governments from imposing any tax on personal income, whether net, gross, or adjusted gross income, capital gains income, or any other portion, or type of income.”

We already have the petition designed:

This initiative bans any kind of income tax by state government or any local government. It is the most effective way to overturn Inslee’s Income Tax next year (and prohibit any income tax in the future).

WE DON’T WANT A CARBON TAX. Official description: “This measure would prohibit the state and local governments from imposing a carbon tax.

We already have the petition designed:

This is the most effective way to overturn Inslee’s Carbon Tax next year (and prohibit any carbon tax in the future).

Getting statewide initiatives qualified for the ballot is really difficult. But we’ve done it 17 times. The average we’ve spent to qualify an “Eyman initiative” for a public vote: $672,000. The average spent by other initiative campaigns: $1.2 million.

That’s right, we spend almost half what others do.

That scares the hell out of politicians like Bob Ferguson.

It’s why the AG’s lawsuit seeks a lifetime ban on all my future political activity. They’re desperately trying to stop us from doing another $30 Tabs Initiative or overturning Inslee’s Tax Schemes with the two initiatives we’ve got lined up next year.

During the brutal 8 years of investigation, litigation, and persecution of me and my family, the AG has repeatedly offered me a deal: if I “voluntarily” agree to his lifetime ban, then the persecution will stop. It’s blatant blackmail and I refuse to give in to it.


really need your help — the massive costs resulting from the AG’s lawsuit are overwhelming. If they take me out, who will dare challenge them? I am so incredibly grateful for your prayers and support during this very difficult time for me and my family.

In addition, we worked really hard on our $30 Tabs Initiative.

We got I-976 qualified, passed, and upheld by that King County judge. Karen and I sacrificed a lot — we sold off our retirement fund to kickstart its signature drive:
