Skin in the Game

Successful people in any walk of life understand that it is more difficult to deal with success than it is with failure.

There has always been something fishy about Tom Luna and we should all know what it is by now. Let me first say that Mr. Luna is a patronizing hypocrite who is still upset he lost his election as chairman of the Idaho GOP. This is a position he should have never been voted into […]

Luna continues to mislead readers, GOP

I would like to say that I’m surprised by defeated GOP chairman Tom Luna’s last-minute op-ed attacking me, Bryan Smith, and Brent Regan regarding our donations to Idaho Freedom PAC. Unfortunately, I’m not. Tom has borne false witness against us, and now it’s up to us to set the record straight. Apparently his peace offering […]

Official Idaho Republican Party Statement on Constitutional Amendment SJR 102

In Great Britain, the king could control when Parliament could meet and when it could be dissolved. Our Founding Fathers knew British history, and they knew that no king or executive should be able to choose when the People’s representatives could meet.

What SJR 102 would do for Idaho and why it’s on your ballot

If Idaho’s framers wanted the governor to write laws and spend Idahoans’ money, they would have written those responsibilities into the Idaho Constitution—but they didn’t.

OP-ED from Idaho Freedom PAC – Protect freedom: Vote yes on SJR 102

Imagine for a moment that an emergency comes up in Idaho. The governor of the state decides to wield unilateral power — to shut down the state’s economy, change laws with the stroke of a pen, and even appropriate millions of dollars from the federal government.  Imagine also that some local government agencies — cities, […]

Medicaid quagmire is costing Idaho dearly

“War is hell,” as the saying goes. Every war comes with costs on and off the battlefield, especially wars fought when there is no intention of ever winning. President Lyndon Johnson’s “war on poverty” is such a war. It’s a welfare monstrosity with a 57-year history of collateral damage including families it was supposed to […]
