We had another mass shooting this week that amazingly made the headlines. I say amazingly because mass shootings are a more than once a day occurrence in America. While no single or combinations of solutions exist that are perfect there are several simple steps, widely supported by Americans across all demographics, that can reduce the number of shootings and their severity.

There are a few very important issues that largely play out in the western states. I need to learn more about them. However I can judge a westerner by their stances on issues I’m familiar with figuring that good reasoning will carry over into other issues. I can also judge them by the company they keep. Therefore I am happy to announce that tellthetruthonthem.com is endorsing Washington Governor Jay Inslee for reelection to office! Continue reading The Endorsement Of Jay Inslee
