Thank you, Washington State Citizens,
for not giving up! I have come back to fight for you!

I retired from the fire department, but I’m not done fighting fires! You’re overtaxed and struggling with the high cost of food and other goods while crime is running high in the streets. As Administrator of Central Pierce Fire and Rescue, Medic 1, and President and CEO of a commercial farming operation, I learned how to cut costs. You need a governor who can fight fires.

To Washington State Voters  

In my first round of running for governor in 2020 I said that I was not asking for your vote. I was asking you not to give up! In this round for the August 2024 primary, I am asking for your vote because you never gave up and neither did I! Washington State Voters, THANK YOU for reaffirming my belief in the goodness of human nature. Your vote for me for Governor of Washington State will be greatly beneficial to so many people; red, yellow, brown, black, or white. Because I’m a fighter. And I’m fighting for you.  

I also want you, the good people of Washington State to understand that I know how difficult the two years of Covid restrictions were. They were especially hard on you and your family if you lost employment because you and the company you worked for were deemed non-essential by the current democrats in control.   

And if you were the owner of a business that went under because your business was “non-essential”, my heart goes out to you as well.  

Washington farmers were hit hard in 2020 because we lost farm workers. Some crops that should have made it into your local grocery stores didn’t.  

Some of you have been building new businesses. And some of you are considering opening your first business. Thankfully, the Office of the Secretary of State is operating to process your paperwork. But they are operating with a skeleton crew. You may need to be patient as they work through the glut of files in the pipeline. I know they are overworked. I have been into the office several times. They are struggling too.  

I know you would like to return to a normal life. We all do. Will you work with me?  

I have years of experience running two corporations. One is my family farming operation that my parents started. We grow Walla Walla Onions. And I have years of experience in public service, as a firefighter, EMT, and administrator of Central Pierce Fire and Rescue, Medic 1. I fought to protect and save lives.  

Let’s work together to see how close we can get back to normal. But this time we will work for Better.  

I want you and your family to thrive!   

As your governor I will fight for your Right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That is what every generation of Americans have fought for.   

And to borrow a phrase from Kari Lake, we need to return our state government back to “We the People”. If you are tired of the corrupt system in our state, in our country…

Why VOTE Republican for Washington’s Governor?

"Martin Lee Wheeler” 

Who are the Republicans?

In a schoolhouse in Ripon, Wisconsin in 1854, fifty-four American citizens who wanted to end slavery formed a new political party. They were inside the warmth of a cabin 

John Nichols: Someone forgot to tell Mike Pence that the first Republicans  were radicals | Column |
Little White School House

in the dead of winter. They named their new organization "the Republican Party.” Six years later, Abraham Lincoln was elected as the first Republican President of the United States.       

The Republican party began as a collection of many talented and different groups joining together to end slavery. It also supported giving women the right to vote, but had much diversity of opinion as well. Many people with many different opinions about many different things all came together to form the Republican Party at the beginning and this is still true today. The Republicans believe, as I, Martin Lee Wheeler do, that all individuals are created equal. I believe that everyone deserves the same treatment by the government. This is what America's first leaders, the founders, believed.

To this day, the Republican Party believes and fights for that ideal, an ideal which states that everyone has equal rights, and that these rights include “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

The Republican Party also believes, as the founders did, that it is the purpose of government to make sure that these rights are not taken away from citizens. Your Second Amendment rights should not be taken away. The Republican Party deserves your vote. 

Martin Lee Wheeler deserves your Vote. I firmly believe that all men and women are created equal, and that the duty of government is to secure their God-given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.


                                                                         Martin Lee Wheeler

The Pronoun Police Are Here and Coming for You Next


If your boss required you to announce publicly that 2 + 2 = 5 and act like you sincerely believed it, would you comply or be fired?


Unfortunately, tens of thousands of federal employees are being put to a similar test by the Biden administration. But instead of being required to deny basic math, they're being forced to deny basic biology under radical "gender identity" policies. ie: P R O N O U N S


Last March 31, on International Transgender Day of Visibility, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management ordered federal agencies to prohibit the intentional use of "incorrect" pronouns in the workplace because it could contribute to an "unlawful hostile work environment." 

First to comply were the Department of Health and Human Services, the State Department, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection), all of which recently issued workplace pronoun mandates. 


Not surprisingly, the Biden administration's LGBT advocate-in-chief, Assistant Secretary of Health Rachel Levine, announced the policy for HHS. Although Levine is a biological male (and for decades went by Richard), HHS employees are prohibited from using anything other than "she" when speaking of Levine and all other trans-identifying biological males who work there. 


Further, because the policy covers "gender nonconforming," "agender," "gender fluid" or "nonbinary" identifications, biologically male employees may retain male names and dress and appear like a man on any given day and still demand to be addressed as she, xir, or they. 


Not to be outdone, Customs and Border Protection issued a memo for Border Patrol …

Hungrier, Lonelier and More Desperate

Hungrier Lonelier and More Desperate


The ominous trends that we see all around us are taking us somewhere.  Needless to say, 2023 was not a good year for our country.  Hunger and homelessness have been absolutely exploding, the suicide rate just continues to go even higher, and there is chaos in the streets on an almost nightly basis. 

It is in this environment that the election of 2024 will happen.  I expect election season to add an additional level of strain to our society, and I don't think that our society will be able to handle it.  We are headed for a nightmare, and at this point everyone should be able to see that.

When conditions deteriorate, it is often those at the bottom of the economic food chain that feel it first.

And right now food banks all over the nation are dealing with a tsunami of hunger...   


Food bank leaders from all corners of the country tell USA TODAY their neighborhood pantries are serving more people while using less resources, as economic pressures continue to ravage the budgets of low-income Americans and service providers alike.

Since pandemic-era boosts to government food aid ended earlier this year in many states, families are turning to food banks to close a gap in need that feels like it has no end in sight…

I keep sharing fact after fact in my articles, but some people out there are just not convinced.

One out of every five children in the U.S. does not have enough food to eat, but the reality of the suffering that is now taking place just isn't sinking in for many of those that are still living the high life.

Meanwhile, homelessness in the U.S. is increasing at the fastest rate ever recorded...

The United States experienced a dramatic 12 percent increase in homelessness as soaring rents and a decline in coronavirus pandemic assistance combined to put housing out of reach for more Americans, federal officials said Friday.

About 653,000 people were experiencing homelessness during the January snapshot. That's the highest number since the country began using the yearly point-in-time survey in 2007 to count the homeless population…
