Bob's Words of Wisdom News

Is it time to say goodbye to our conservative Idaho?

Every day as I listen to the changes taking place in Boise, it becomes more obvious to me that our wonderful conservative state is being lost to the wave of liberalism sweeping over it. As little as 10 years ago, you would not have even needed the type of bill being introduced by Rep. Zito to protect children under age 18 from predatory practices masquerading as medical care.

Just look at the fact that the citizens of Boise have elected a new liberal mayor who is endorsing a candidate for president who is gay. I have talked about this time coming to Idaho for years, yet everyone was either too busy to listen or didn’t care enough to seek the truth. I believe the pendulum has finally swung past the halfway point. I can assure you that most of the people who have moved here to find asylum from liberal bastions to the east and west of us will be sadly disappointed as this liberal virus continues to spread throughout the Treasure Valley.

Unfortunately, we have too few legitimate conservatives in our legislature like Christy Zito, Heather Scott, and Priscilla Giddings who are willing to speak out about the injustices both morally and fiscally that are occurring every day in our state. The old guard do not really care about the people they serve. They have had their chance and have done nothing to fix these problems. They were only interested in lining their own pockets and the pockets of their lobbyist masters.

It’s no different here than what has happened in Washington D.C. where the old guard RINOs lined their pockets along with the liberals fleecing the taxpayers and robbing the government piggy bank until Donald Trump was elected. We don’t have a Donald Trump to save us in Idaho.

So while Representatives like Mike Moyle are trying to freeze the property tax, if only for a year, to give property owners on a fixed income some brief relief, crony republicans and lobbyists plan for his demise in the next election. This group plays dirty and until the people of Idaho are willing to get off their couches and fight these money-grabbing carpetbaggers at the ballot box, nothing will change.

We need fresh blood in our legislature and a governor who will worry more about the people of Idaho than how to placate the new-age liberals who are infecting the Treasure Valley with their free-spending liberal ideas.

Our conservative values are slowly but surely being eroded and it will take a herculean effort to stem this Blue tide washing over our state. To be honest, I’m not sure this liberal onslaught can even be stopped or turned around, but I pray every day that some brave conservative souls will step forward to run for office to stop this train wreck. As sure as the sun will come up tomorrow, these liberals will continue to try to put their liberal stamp on Idaho until we put up a conservative political wall high enough that they can’t climb over.

We have already seen the damage done to our country by the wacko libs. We have Bernie Sanders—a proclaimed democratic socialist—in the lead for the presidential nomination and a democratic controlled congress that has tried to impeach our president for no valid reason. We are not yet at that point here in Idaho, but when you see three democratic presidential candidates coming to Boise to try to garner votes, you can be sure Idaho is a target that is in their sights.
