Isn’t it interesting that the signs advocating the “right to plow” initiative are usually seen together with signs for John Koster for County Council?
It turns out that the “Right to Plow” initiative is really the “Right to Plunder” initiative. It’s one of those extreme right wing property rights initiatives that allows anyone to dig up a stream, wetland, or anything else they want to dig up, no matter how much damage it does to the neighbor or the guy downstream. It would lead to untold amounts of damage in Snohomish County.
John Koster has already shown his desire to do untold damage to both Snohomish County and the people of Snohomish County. When he was a state legislator he twice sponsored legislation to break off the northern portion of Snohomish County to create Freedom County. It would cost the taxpayers a huge amount of money to fund the infrastructure for a new county. Koster was pushing the ultra-right-wing agenda.
John Postema, the loudest of the property rights crowd, is behind the “Right to Plunder” initiative. He regularly pushes ideas that look like God, mother, apple pie and the American flag at first glance, but looks more like pasture patties upon closer inspection. Neither Koster nor Postema are up to any good for Snohomish County, and that’s why the signs are usually seen together.
