skeptical. Hopeful, but skeptical…
“I’m very pleased this measure has virtually no chance of advancing into reality,” Idaho Senate Minority Leader Melissa Wintrow, D, told Fox News Digital. “It would be bad for all involved and bad for the country, and I am opposed to it at all levels.”
Yeah, but she’s a Democrat, and Democrats are famous for having their heads up their butts. And of course she’s wrong. She just wants power–it’s quite plain to see. Like THAT is anything new or different!
Democracy gives her a thrill, but Democracy don’t pay her bills! She wants power… [apologies to the Beatles]
But, if Democrats hate it, it is probably a good thing. You know, that is a pretty darn good rule of thumb.
“Yes, I am supportive of the Greater Idaho idea,” Idaho Rep. Judy Boyle, R, told Fox News Digital. “I have lived along the Oregon border my entire life, so have many east Oregon friends. They have been quite frustrated with the liberal I-5 western Oregon corridor running their state and completely ignoring their values and needs. They have finally come down to asking the voters, county by county, if they want to join Idaho. Currently, 11 counties have said YES [sic]!”
If you want democratic, voice-of-the-people government, you want the “Greater Idaho” movement to succeed.
