This West Is OUR West

Uniting Western States - Protecting Our Rights

“It doesn't matter what is true. It only matters what people believe is true."   - Paul Watson, co-founder of Green Peace

“Property in a thing consists not merely in its ownership and possession, but in the unrestricted right of use, enjoyment, and disposal. Anything which destroys any of the elements of property to that extent, destroys the property itself. The substantial value of property lies in its use. If the right of use is denied, the value of the property is annihilated and ownership is rendered a barren right.” - Richard B. Sanders, Washington Supreme Court Justice (Retired)
