Idahoans Must Take Action Now in Fight for Freedom – Tell Your Legislators to Do their Duty, Protect Your Rights

Idahoans:  Call your legislators.  Tell them to be in Boise on Wednesday, September 15, and to do the job to which they were elected, protecting Idahoans freedoms and livelihoods.

Individual freedom is under unprecedented attack in America.  Biden’s recent announcement that he intends to use the federal bureaucracy, in this case the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), to force the COVID “vaccine” on tens of millions of Americans, is the latest, and to date the most egregious, example of government moving to control every aspect of our lives.

What are Americans who value their liberty to do?

Under our federalist system, the first line of defense against federal tyranny is state government.  Yet, here in Idaho, a supposedly, “conservative state,” our “leaders” are missing in action.  The House, because they recessed, could be called back into session by Speaker Scott Bedke, to address this current crisis, but he’s refused mounting calls to do so.  In the meantime, Idahoans who won’t comply with Biden’s mandate, and those of corporations seemingly intent on doing the government’s bidding, are in grave danger of losing their livelihoods.

There is hope, but it’s clear that it’s going to take Idahoans demanding action from their legislators to prevent an impending disaster for many workers and their families.  Several Idaho legislators, part of the Conservative Coalition, who take their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution seriously, and by extension who understand that their first duty is to protect the rights of Americans, will be meeting in Boise this coming Wednesday, September 15.  They will seek to establish a quorum (36 Representatives) who can then put forward a bill to prevent vaccine mandates in our state.

As a recent email update from Idaho Representative Heather Scott showed, it is not a great challenge to write such a bill.  The wording could be as simple as this:

COVID-19 VACCINE REQUIREMENTS PROHIBITED.  No person, firm, corporation or other business entity or representative thereof, shall require as a condition for employment or continuation of employment any person or employee to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.  A violation of this section shall constitute a misdemeanor.

The issue is not writing the bill.  No, the issue is whether or not legislators will show up to defend the people and their rights.  We know the members of the Conservative Coalition will be there.  Unfortunately, many Republican legislators in Idaho will not.  They’ll hide behind such platitudes as, “We don’t want to interfere with private business.”

Don’t fall for this false narrative.  Such Republicans are like the Pharisees, using tradition as an excuse to do nothing when the people are crying out for relief.

We Idahoans must take action to get our legislators to Boise on September 15.  Call, email, text, direct message, but let your legislator know that you expect him or her to heed the call, to go to Boise, and to fight back against forced vaccine mandates.

And for those that won’t hear you, Primaries are Coming.  Start now to identify candidates who understand that the most basic purpose of government is to protect our rights.  Those who won’t stand for liberty should be turned out, en masse.
