SOCIALISM: He said what?

SOCIALISM: Look it up

February 18, 2020 at 5:00 am

This letter is in response to J. Strobel’s Op/Ed on 2/14. No, in my opinion, “American Socialism” is much worse than what you think it is. His article sounds like he’s parroting Obama — you didn’t build this — American socialism has. Then I...

SOCIALISM: Cancer on society

February 18, 2020 at 5:00 am

INITIATIVE: Try this redistribution

February 16, 2020 at 5:00 am

Mr. Mayville, instead of chasing signatures to push for legislation that would reduce the income of a minority segment of Idahoans, try this idea. I’m sure this will work. It’s exactly in line with the current thought process of the left. M...
