It’s Your Choice Faith, Family & Freedom or Benevolent Corruption

Mr. Bundy has an almost impossible task before him in trying to become Governor. He cannot pull off this campaign by himself. The media will continue to create a narrative about who he is and what he stands for that will have to be addressed throughout the campaign. Until I got to meet and talk […]

I read with deep respect the Memorial Day Post from the Ammon Bundy campaign about the life and passing of Lt.

Tale of Two Candidates: Liberal Little vs Conservative Bundy

Could it be that Idahoans are finally waking up? To those who think Idaho might be changing to a more moderate state, I would say that you really can’t make that judgement with the results of this primary election. We only saw less than a third of the registered voters go to the polls in […]

We Need “Discerning Hearts”

It is so easy today to paint with broad strokes in black and white. There is no grey at the edges or meeting of the ways in the middle. We approach history the same way. White man bad—Indian (Native American) good. Ukraine good—Russia bad. Christian good—Muslim bad. Rich man bad—poor man good. Republican good—Democrat bad. […]

Idaho at the time only had one COVID case according to the governor’s official website. I began looking at what other states […]
