Is Government the Source of our Liberties?

Is Idaho’s Legislature Truly Conservative? What the heck happened during the last weeks of the Idaho legislature? Republicans hold 80% of the seats in both houses and most fancy themselves to be conservative. I am one who watches the daily debates on the floor of both the House and the Senate.

Op-Ed: What is YOUR Line in the Sand?

There is no doubt, your freedom is under attack. What is your line in the sand? Do you have one? Can we draw a “line in the sand” when we may not even be sure where it should be? How many rights are we willing to lose, rather than stand up for truth? For example, […]
