The RINO problem has long plagued Freedom Loving Americans. So many individuals who would want people to believe that they support American values, that is that rights and liberties come from God and not government and that we are a republic and not a democracy, but in truth, they are big government tax and spread socialists. The Republican establishment has promoted the RINO for years claiming that it is a winning combination and totally disregarding what is in the best interest of our nation. It is true, the Republican establishment has become as enamored with placing party above country as has the Democrat party.
We have witnessed this in statewide and national politics. RINO’s have led the Republican party for years. Every presidential nominee from Daddy Bush up to Donald Trump was a true and blue RINO. The Senate has had RINO McConnell in leadership for years. The House has had RINO’s in leadership for years including Boehner, Ryan, and McCarthy. States have done the same thing including Idaho.
We have learned in Idaho that it was common for die hard Democrats to run as Freedom Loving Americans and then govern as the socialists they are. Because so many people listen to what people say and pay no attention to what they have done, many of them were elected, until 2022.
Early Wednesday morning, the Idaho Freedom Foundation, a powerful force in conservative politics in the Gem State, tweeted, “Conservatives are having a solid night, especially in the Idaho Senate.”
“People are frustrated with what happened over the last two years, and they’re frustrated with the fact that our attorney general gave bad advice to the governor and told him that he could keep extending these emergency orders,” said former Rep. Raul Labrador (R), who defeated current and now defeated Attorney General Wasden by a wide margin. “They took it out on the legislators who were maybe sitting on the sidelines.”
Labrador, a founding member of the House Freedom Caucus who once challenged Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for the position of House majority whip, was among the Idaho Republicans who questioned the validity of the 2020 elections. He said he would have joined a lawsuit brought by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) that sought to overturn election results in six battleground states. Wasden was among the few Republican attorneys general who did not join Paxton’s suit.
“I think it was a huge factor” in Wasden’s loss, Labrador said of the Texas suit in an interview Wednesday. “He didn’t join it because he had given legal advice to our governor that he could change election rules throughout the pandemic.”
The same scenario played out in many Idaho house and senate seats. The Republican party will of course retain a huge majority, but importantly, that majority will have far more true Freedom Loving Americans and less RINO’s. The media paints the picture this way: “But the realignment is likely to put a once traditionally conservative state on the new vanguard of the far right.” That is because the media, along with RINO’s, holds that anyone who believes that “government that governs least governs best” is far right.
Thank you voters of Idaho for leading the way nationwide to start to scrutinize those who claim to be Freedom Loving Americans but are really big government socialists.
