I think the Founding Fathers had it wrong, religion should be a part of government. Look how well it works in the state of Idaho. The dominant religion should dictate to the people because they are the majority. That’s just the way it is.
Regarding the millions of dollars we are leaving on the table with Medicaid, I say we don’t need it. We are spending much less on education per capita than other states, and we our letting our roads and bridges deteriorate without repair. Let other states use that money to upgrade their education and highway system.
We should invite all states to send their nuclear waste to Idaho. That pesky agreement we signed with the federal government previously should be declared null and void. It really doesn’t matter about the safety of this since we will create many new jobs, unlike those dirty horse racing jobs (see dominant religion above).
Let’s not worry about making mistakes as the Legislature has created a taxpayer-funded account to pay for any problems.
This is why it is great to live in a one party state.
