New State Named Liberty: Proposal To Split Washington Into 2

Proponents of a plan to split Washington into two states held a meeting in Moses Lake that organizers called an attempt to clear up misconceptions about the movement.

No major announcements were made at the Wednesday September 4th meeting, where Rene' Holaday read a prepared statement and fielded questions from reporters.

Holaday says splitting Washington would be a win-win scenario for rural conservatives who live east of the Cascade Range and urban liberals who live in western Washington.

The Spokesman-Review says Republican State Rep. Matt Shea of Spokane Valley has proposed HB 1509, creating a new state called Liberty out of eastern Washington.

Holaday says in the new state all religions would be welcome, Native American treaty rights would be respected and residents would have unfettered gun and property rights.

Within 20 years the West Side could be totally conservative and the East Side could be totally progressive.

It probably is actually that way already but the people don't get it yet.

Why just believe everything the corporate media tells you?
