The activists in Idaho are getting creative. In a recent rally hundreds of pasteboard boxes were delivered to the Idaho statehouse in Boise, all carrying the same message for the legislators in side; It's Time to Go.
While acknowledging the few Idaho Legislators who continually advocate for individual rights, the message was sent to the remainder that, in November, people will be voting.
Idaho lawmakers have unabashedly stripped away basic freedoms. Freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and the freedom to actively engage in democracy have fallen victim to the bigoted bullies at the end of Capitol Avenue in Boise.
With the passage of ever more fascist legislation lawmakers in Idaho have indicated their willingness to disregard the Constitution, divert money from public education, and introduce extreme laws that waste time, money and energy. Ignored are the real issues that affect the state every day.
Corporations which do not create jobs in the state are funneled money which comes from the social programs that care for the elderly, veterans and children.
Idahoans are working together to bring about needed change within the state. The nation is watching the activists in this reddest of red states.
If people in Idaho of all places are fed up to the point of taking to the streets and Occupying the courthouse, how does that bode for the rest of the country?
