Is Ammon Bundy a Game Changer as an Independent?

Ammon Bundy has caught everyone in the political arena off guard and has turned over Governor Little’s reelection apple cart. Everyone has been thinking that with three viable candidates running against Little in the primary it was going to be an easy win for him. Unfortunately for Little that has changed and you can bet that the political strategists for all the candidates have been caught with their pants down.

Ammon’s decision to drop out of the Republican Primary for governor and run as an independent has truly changed the dynamics of the governor’s race. It was always going to be an uphill battle for all three viable challengers to win the primary but now that there are only two viable challengers running the game has changed dramatically. It is our opinion that barring a personal visit by President Trump to support Janice McGeachin, and a strong media campaign Governor Little may still have enough influence and money to win the Republican primary but just like in 2016 with only a plurality of the vote as long as both Humphrey’s and McGeachin are both on the ballot. It looks like this primary could now be a rerun of 2016 when Little won with only 37% of the vote.

Even if Little wins the primary the real battle will take place in November. By then Ammon Bundy will have had the time necessary to get his message out to many more Idahoan’s and give him a good shot of grabbing the brass ring out of Governor Doolittle’s hands. Little may well need all of that $11 million they say he has salted away for his race and then some.

Changing to Independent at this point in the race was a brilliant move by Bundy as it will give him another 6 months to prepare for the general election. In that time he will need to convince voters that he is the one person who can turn Idaho around and stop the corruption that has plagued our state for 2 decades. The key will be to remind Idahoans of Littles broken promises to cut the grocery tax and reform property taxes while cutting income taxes to help his high income crony friends and corporate supporters with an income tax cut.

Bundy needs to remind voters how the Little administration called a state of emergency which has run for 2 years and caused untold damage when he closed down non-essential businesses. While governor Little continues to brag about how he has brought economic prosperity back to the Gem State the real reason our economy is doing so well is because of President Trump’s policies. In case you haven’t noticed when was the last time you heard Little utter Trump’s name since he endorsed McGeachin. Trump is no fool he saw Little for what he was, just another rhino elitist trying to ride in on his coat tails. The real question is will Idaho’s voters be able to see through Little’s veil of lies before the November election?

While Bundy will have a lot of ground to cover he has already proven that he is able to attract crowds of people who are willing to listen to his message. We tuned into his last town hall on the internet which had some 900 registered participants. This showed us that he is beginning to capture the imagination of both conservative republican and independent voters. Ammon has been pounded and beaten up at every turn by the liberal media since he entered this race. If the leftist media wasn’t talking about his participation in defending his Dad’s grazing rights they were criticizing his occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge or his illegal removal from the Idaho State House gallery and Lincoln Auditorium. Bundy is a real leader and has the scars to prove it. We believe he is someone who will fight for what is right and protect our constitutional rights no matter what the cost to him personally. Just answer a simple question, would you rather be in a foxhole during a war with Bundy or Little?

The leftist’s media have tried their hardest to turn this patriot of people’s rights into a right wing nut job and they couldn’t be more wrong about him. People need to look at the facts with rational clarity and not the foggy fiction presented by the media. One has to see that all of these accusations they say were the mark of an anarchist were really the patriotic acts of a man seeking justice from government oppression of his family, friends and himself. Ammon and his family went through a literal hell with the various government agencies prosecuting him for honest attempts to right the wrongs of government overreach and oppression. You have to understand that the judge’s rulings to drop all charges against Mr. Bundy with prejudice left the government prosecutors with lots of egg on their faces. While the government will never admit the wrongful prosecution and internment of Bundy it is obvious by the judge’s rulings they were on a witch hunt from the very beginning.

While Ammon his brother and father were acquitted on all federal charges it seems that even now the liberal media does not want to accept the decision of the courts. They continue their persecution of this man who is not afraid to stand up for his rights under the constitution. Even President Trump saw the injustice against the Hammonds that Ammon was fighting against with the Malheur occupation when he pardoned Dwight Hammond and his son. While justice prevailed in the Bundy’s battle with the Federal Government it shows us just how powerful various government agencies can be if they decide you might be a danger to the system. Bundy is a fighter and a man who understands that if you don’t stand up and fight for your constitutional rights the government will first ignore them and then take them away one my one.

We are currently seeing demonstrations across the nation about the teaching of Critical Race Theory in our schools, mask and vaccine mandates and many other onerous illegal orders. The people issuing these orders are nothing more than power hungry political wannabee mayors and governors along with the medical bureaucrats. The Truckers convoy in Ottawa Canada is a perfect example of the people’s right to protest peacefully against government edicts that they feel are unjust. Americans our at a precipice when it comes to their constitutional rights and are just now waking up and taking a stand against what they consider to be injustices in the system. Actions by our government officials and the medical bureaucrats at the NIH and CDC during this covid event have finally poked the bear once too often with their covid mandates. The people are just now beginning to fight back with recalls of boards of education to the surprise election of a republican governor in Virginia. We are going to see some dynamic changes take place in the midterm elections with republicans taking both houses and we would bet money that Trump will run again in 2024 to win another four year term. “MAGA”

We also believe that the real conservatives of this country are becoming activated and those politicians that have taken advantage of them during this crisis will pay the price in this year’s elections both federal and state. This is going to be a tumultuous year so keep your eye on the polls because the politicians who have not lived up to their oaths of office or their promises are going to feel the wrath of the constituents they both oppressed lied too. Many of these democrats and republican cronies will be looking for new jobs and we might actually be able to return to some normalcy when these elections are over. May God Bless America.
