Idaho Ranks in Top 10 States that are Least Conservative

I have been saying for many years that Idaho is no longer the Reddest of the Red states as attested to by a recent article in the conservative “Daily Wire”.

Read the article here: https://www.dailywire.com/news/dem-lawmakers-vote-for-leftism-in-lockstep-while-republicans-routinely-abandon-conservatism-analysis-finds

Idahoans need to think hard about voting for someone just because a candidate has an R in front of their name. “Ranking among the 10 states with the most liberal Republican lawmakers were Mississippi, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Idaho. That’s despite Republicans holding strong majorities in those legislatures, and the state’s population overwhelmingly voting for Republicans in election after election.”

This tells the story of how our once very conservative state has drifted to the point that we are now more moderate than ever before. Many Idahoans running for political office know that if you don’t have an R before your name on the ballot you don’t have a chance in hell of being elected so Democrats now register as republicans. It’s time that Idaho’s voters started doing some homework and looking at how their candidates voted in the previous year’s legislature before voting to re-elect them for 2 more years.

A simple way to do that is to go to the Idaho Freedom Index Here: https://idahofreedom.org/check-our-your-lawmakers-idaho-freedom-index-scores/

Voters also need to speak out when they disagree with the way their representatives are voting and hold their feet to the fire.

A perfect example of how Idaho is moving to the left is the current battle going on to hold a special session of the legislature. Idaho’s Senate Republican Caucus has reached 60% support to hold a special session on the presidential primary. However, we need to emphasize that they achieved enough votes by relying on the unanimous support of every Senate Democrat. In other words, without support from the Democrats, they would have fallen significantly shy of the required 60%.

We have way too many establishment Republicans who side with the Democrats to get bills passed that are not of a conservative nature. This is highly detrimental to those voters who have supported representatives they thought were conservatives but indeed are nothing more than democrats hiding behind the Big R. Idaho’s establishment republicans no longer are serving the interests of their conservative constituents who were expecting to have their conservative values supported. Instead they are joining with Democrats to pass legislation that has been moving Idaho further to the left for a decade.

I moved my family here 30 years ago from New York and New Jersey to get away from the extreme movements to the left in those states along with the high taxes that came with living there. I must admit while Idaho is not close to becoming a N.Y. or N.J. it is drifting in that direction more every year. Remember how our Governor called a state of emergency and closed all non-essential businesses while allowing the large corporations who supported his election to stay open with only one active case of Covid 19. Remember how Idahoans were arrested for participating in church services and visiting in public parks or when corporations mandated unproven experimental vaccines for their employees. Conservative governments don’t do these types of things that infringe on our constitutional rights.

There is a battle currently going on between the Establishment Republicans who are aligned with the Democrats and Idaho Freedom Caucus as to whether they should call a special session of the legislature at a cost of $30,000 per day. This special session being pushed by the Establishment Republicans and Democrat coalition would be used to discuss if we should hold a May presidential primary long after the 16 major primaries are over giving Idahoans little say in the presidential nominee. While the Idaho Freedom Caucus wants to hold a March 2nd Caucus, which will bring presidential candidates to Idaho and ensure Idahoans have a voice in the nomination of our next president and will not cost taxpayers a nickel.

It is high time that Idahoans spoke up and told these Establishment Republicans to stand down and either start being conservative or face opponents in the next election that are conservative. We need to send a message to our legislators that if you continue to vote and move Idaho to the left you will be left behind in the next election. It is time for Idaho’s electorate to wake up and hold their representatives’ feet to the fire and let them know that we are not happy with the way they are governing our state and moving it further to the left every year.

We ask you to take the time to watch this Video presented by the Idaho Freedom Foundation.

NEITHER SPECIES OF SWAMP CROCODILE (DISGUISED AS DONKEYS AND ELEPHANTS) ARE CONSERVATIVES – not according to the only One with the authority to determine what constitutes conservatism:

“In politics, everything revolves around the positioning of right, left, and center. You’re either rightwing, leftwing, or a centrist. Politicians and non-politicians alike employ all three terms as if there’s a consensus on the parameters for those designations. Even if this were true, who gets to determine what’s right, left, and center, and how are those determinations made? Over time, the parameters shift (always further to the left), so how is someone on the right to know he’s now a centrist or a centrist to know he’s now on the left?….

“There are no answers to these questions because there is no standard for these terms. The terms are completely arbitrary, defined at any given time by finite man and his fickle ethics rather than by Yahweh1 and His immutable morals. Although the following example doesn’t specifically address right and left, it illustrates the disparity between man’s ever-changing standard and Yahweh’s never-changing standard:

‘Two people could have walked down any U.S. street in 1930 – one with a bottle of whiskey under his arm and one with a bar of gold in his pocket, and the one with the whiskey would have been a criminal whereas the one with the bar of gold would have been considered a good law abiding citizen. If the same thing happened in any U.S. city in 1970, the one with the whiskey would be the law abiding citizen and the one with the gold bar would be the criminal.’2

“In a mere forty-year period, man’s standard had completely reversed itself. The same transposition of ethics has occurred innumerable times under all governments based upon the traditions of man.

“Isaiah 33:22 and James 4:12 declare that Yahweh is the exclusive legislator. There are no others, period! Anyone who claims the title of legislator (particularly when his “laws”—whether commandments, statutes, or judgments—are inconsonant with Yahweh’s) is a usurper and is perpetuating the sin begun by Adam and Eve. The same is true for any one of us who would modify Yahweh’s triune law….

“Yahweh is the only lawgiver because as Creator He’s the only one with the authority to determine what is good and evil. His morals as codified in His commandments, statutes, and judgments determine what is right and left. Anything left of His right(eousness) is left, liberal, and ungodly….’

Let me just say that Bob Neugebauer has been at the forefront of this fact for YEARS. He was the first person to tell me the same thing this article is telling everyone, back in 2011, when I first moved to Idaho.

I’m very thankful to be out of that bootlicking state, though I miss seeing you, Bob! 😉

We the People have no say in our government. Moreover, for the most part, neither does the governor nor the legislature. It’s the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry, that proudly proclaims that it’s “an important and influential force in Idaho politics representing every facet of business and industry in the state…” Oh, and of course Big Pharma. Otherwise we would not have known how effective the clot shots were without their piles of money coming into the state to the hospitals and medical providers.

Bob:

The analysis in that Daily Wire article is flawed. If you wanted to make a comparison, then you should have looked at how Representatives and Senators in the Congress voted on the SAME issues. The CPAC article it is based on (Study of 150,000 lawmaker votes exposes Republicans as less committed to conservative policy than Democrats are to liberal policy) instead compared how state legislators voted on the DIFFERENT issues which arose. That’s like comparing asparagus (California) with potatoes (Idaho).

The CPAC article has a graph showing how the Average Republican Score varies with the Percentage of Republicans in the [State] Legislature, and Mr. Rosiak at Daily Wire reproduces it along with a list. But both the graph and list are missing Nebraska.
