Write in Steve Johnson for a free Idaho

October 24, 2022

A recent letter to the Bonner Daily Bee claimed that only Scott Herndon fully understands this part of Article 1 of our state Constitution: “All political power is inherent in the people. Government is institute for their equal protection and benefit, and they have the right to alter, reform or abolish the same whenever they may deem necessary.” I agree that Herndon understands that political power is inherent in himself and like-minded others who seek to undermine our government and remake it into something unrecognizable to free-thinking people.

Sadly, he doesn’t get the equal protection and benefit part – as he doesn’t respect those of us who cherish our right to privacy and bodily autonomy; our right to love whom we choose and read what we wish; and our public institutions - the libraries, schools and public lands that serve us all, rich and poor.

Herndon’s radical ideas, the lies about his opponent in the primary election, and his belief that guns are appropriate everywhere – even a peaceful concert in the park – frighten me. He is on the front lines of those who wish to alter and abolish our government as we know it.

As long as we still have a free and fair general election (unlike the closed Republican primary, which favors extremists like Herndon), it is critical that we exercise our political power: our one humble vote. Write in Steve Johnson for District 1 Senate if you value our freedoms.
