To Rural Property Owners of Washington State, Government Types, Interested Parties and the News Media:  (If you don't live in Washington State, ignore this message)

So who are the folks that are trying to derail I-933, the Property Fairness Initiative?  Who is behind No ON I-933? (See http://noon933.org/).  It includes only three groups.  Democrats, unions and environmental organizations.  Here is the list of endorsers to NO ON I-933.  See:
 
http://noon933.org/about/endorsers.php  (entire list shown below)
 
You can find the names of the directors and organizers at: http://noon933.org/about/bios.php.  One of them is a previous employee of Futurewise.
 
Of course Futurewise is on the list and Futurewise and others have given NO ON I-933:
 
Opponents, calling themselves Citizens for Community Protection, have raised $385,538 - led by $75,000 cash and $21,023 worth of in-kind donations from Futurewise (formerly 1,000 Friends of Washington). Retired Seattle software developer Paul Brainerd gave $50,000, the Nature Conservancy gave $38,500 cash and $2,529 in-kind, and the United Food and Commercial Workers District Council 17 gave $25,000. Among local donors was the Olympia Food Co-op, which gave $200.
 
(From an article in the Olympian Newspaper, June 23, 2006)
 
Please note the amount of money they have raised so far: $385,538.  And more is pouring in.  Can you imagine what one of our groups could do with this amount of money?  Freedom costs money too.
 
The following people do not believe in the Constitution (Federal or State), they do not believe in FREEDOM and LIBERTY and they certainly don't care one wit about property rights.  What they do believe in is absolute, dictatorial control over the American landowner.

"THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF RURAL LANDOWNERS"
 
The National Association of Rural Landowners (NARLO) is a non-profit corporation, duly licensed in the State of Washington.  It was formed in response to draconian land use ordinances that were passed by King County in Washington State (Seattle) in the late Fall of 2004, after vociferous opposition from rural landowners.  NARLO's mission is to begin the long process of restoring, preserving and protecting Consttitutional property rights and returning this country to a Constitutional Republic.  Government has done a great job of dividing us up into little battle groups where we are essentially impotent at a national level.  We will change all that with the noisy voices and the vast wealth tied up in the land of the American rural landowner.  The land is our power, if we will just use that power, before we lose it.  We welcome donations and volunteers who believe as we do, that government abuses against rural landowners have gone on for far too long and a day of reckoning is at hand.  To learn more, visit our website at www.narlo.org.
 
President Roosevelt, in his 1933 inaugural address said, “…. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”.  I maintain that the only thing we have to fear is unbridled government.  The only way unbridled government can exist is if WE THE PEOPLE allow it.  Unfortunately, we have.
