I couldn’t bring myself to vote for Mike Simpson. 

Mike Simpson and I have no personal history.  Frankly, I’m not swayed by people telling me he’s a RINO.  I am swayed by his abandonment of Trump.

Two weeks ago, I was so incensed by his holier-than-thou attitude I ripped his bumper sticker off my car.  I’m really impressed with Anthony Tomkins.  Thursday, I voted early at County West.  A straight Republican ticket but for the choice of Anthony.  Additionally, I voted in favor of HJR 5.  I was conflicted, but in the long run don’t believe non-elected bureaucrats should make laws.  Call them regulations if you like, but we realize the semantic legerdemain.  It’s no different than when a legislator explains there isn’t a tax hike because instead they raised fees.  A dollar in my right pocket is the same as a dollar in my left pocket.  No matter which pocket gets picked, I’m still short a dollar.

I voted for Trump.  There were other good candidates on the ballot from the Constitution Party and unlike callers to my show I greatly respect McMullin, however.  He won’t help stop Hillary and instead helps her cause.  A story I saw today puts him at double digits in Idaho.

Endorsements are useless.  I’ve never been swayed by any and I don’t expect you’ll be swayed by me.  I just had to follow my conscience.  Mike Simpson and I have no personal history.  Frankly, I’m not swayed by people telling me he’s a RINO.  I am swayed by his abandonment of Trump.  Obviously, he prefers working with a socialist in the White House.  I suspect this is his last term.  If not then I believe I’ll primary the man in 2018.
