The ‘small things’ really do matter when voting

I have been asked many times “Why are you running against Eric Redman? He is doing a good job.” Well, he is doing well on the high profile issues like permitless carry, traditional marriage, religious liberty, and protecting the unborn. However, when it comes to the issues that really hit close to home, but are […]

Whoever Controls the Resources, Controls Our Economic Future

I read with interest a news headline on April 15, 2016 stating: “Idaho unemployment rate falls to 3.8 percent.” Sounds good, right? Well, whatever database this information comes from is at best, misleading. Here is the truth as validated by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare: As of 2014, 20.2% of Idahoans are on […]

Democrats – The Party of Murderers, Rapists… and Hillary

I’m that rarest of Republican—conservative. Like Donald Trump I’ve spent my life in the television, marketing and branding world. I understand how to message. And how to turn lemons to lemonade.

Who Will Dare Tell The Truth?

I picked out a submarine sandwich from the deli along with a pint of whipping cream and rushed to the checkout. The cashier rang up $11 for the two items. She glanced at me and said, “Isn’t that awful? Eleven dollars for that!” To which I responded, “I remember getting a dime from my Dad, […]
