In an effort to create an effective analogy and insert a little fun into a description of the 2016 Idaho legislative session, I am assigning roles to two groups of people: Group 1 is the “good guys”. In this summary they are the people who generally like the Gem State Patriot and its publisher. Group […]

Rep. Kelley Packer of Legislative District 28 sent a formal letter to the Health and Welfare Committee pledging to vote against any funding that comes before the panel until a waiver program for medical gap coverage is presented to the full house for a vote.

Controlling the Public with Stealth Propaganda

Most people don’t understand how big the corporate lobbyists footprint is because all of the deals are made in the back rooms and are never exposed to the light of day. We have become so naïve as a voting public that we believe just about anything the politicians tell us because the establishment media is […]

Just what the doctor ordered – IACI’s corporate influence of medicine in Idaho

It was only two short years ago that Governor Otter and our crony legislators paid back their campaign contributors by voting for a State Health Care Exchange.

Obama Is the Greatest Republican Salesman in History

Obama, Hillary and leading Democrats aren’t even attempting to hide or moderate their views anymore. They are out of the closet. It’s the “Full Monty.” Or in this case, “The Full Socialist.” There’s no hiding it anymore. They are loud, proud and radical left. Democrats can’t even see “center” from their homes anymore.

The decision to run for the office of State Representative for District 2, Seat B, was not an easy one.
