GOP doesn’t represent Idaho’s real interests


    In 2014, there will be a big reckoning across this nation. First, the conservatives went against workers’ rights, then they went after voting rights, and then education funding, and now the conservatives are going against women. They have alienated a big part of the population by meddling with the civil rights of others.
    Republican dupes for cleverly engineered propaganda of big corporations blithely accept that money is speech, regardless that we now have $11 billion campaigns bought and paid for by rich and powerful men. Issues the American people care about the most, like the nation’s crumbling infrastructure, climate change, failing education and jobs bills are ignored or filibustered.
    They have abused the process. They even vote against their own proposals. In no way can these yahoos pretend they are doing the people’s business. Stop voting against your own self-interest, Idahoans! If you work for an hourly wage, or if you are a woman, you’d be a damn fool to vote Republican.
