    Horowitz: Idaho conservatives poised to remake legislature like never before

    Idaho has long suffered a paradox, in that it is so dominated by Republicans that it is not so Republican at all. Because it is a de facto one-party state, many liberals who are well connected to the woke industries and lobbyists choose to run as Republicans and use their superior campaign cash to campaign as conservatives, the exact opposite of what they plan to do in office. This is why, despite a 58-12 majority in the House and a 28-7 majority in the Senate, conservatives rarely enjoy legislative wins that other red states are able to easily secure. Last night’s elections might have changed that in a big way.

    It all starts with State and local elections.

    The commie cancer is lurking everywhere. Make no mistake; ultra red states are their top priority. They've learned the way to power is through local office, like mayoralties and schoolboard positions. Not to mention DA offices.

    Here's the deal & the problem. Sheep all look alike just like conservatives all say the same thing to get elected. And politicians will all say what gets them elected. Beto could stand up in front of a crowd of people & say "Well I am liberal on some things but very conservative on others". The he could list the hot topic items for conservatives & end up in a close race or even winning. And let's face it we have a history of electing RINO's everywhere. The fact is that we often don't find out that they are liberal until after they get into office & then they have power & backing in the following elections & end up elected FOREVER. Hell, look at McCain & how long that liberal SOB was in office as a republican.

    What we NEED is the RNC to come out & give a stamp of approval & support to every person that claims to be a conservative. And if they don't get that approval then don't give them a dime & support anyone running against them.

    Only about 1/3 of Republicans are Conservatives.

    All the rest are functionally no different than the Democraps.

    Republicans beat other Republicans is all that happened. I voted Republican here in Idaho and felt like I had a long string of successes. This was a Primary too. The fall election counts most.
    I only vote for Republicans. I do not support Biden. Biden will never be supported by me.

    Two terms I simply do not like.

    Liberal is one.

    Conservative the other.

    When I vote Republican, it does not mean I will never support new things. I do support new things. I simply never support Democrat things. Democrats disguise themselves calling themselves liberal. They are the most controlling dangerous party in America.

    Want to see what I refuse to support in any fashion? The hens on the View. They truly are dangerous to our country.
    I only vote for Republicans. I do not support Biden. Biden will never be supported by me.
