Hee-Haw Logic: Idaho’s Donkey Voters
Editorial by Sue Dawson
What do you call a Republican who votes like a Democrat? –A DONKEY VOTER!
Heeee-haw, hee-haw! A whopping 26 of the 35 Idaho Senators* are Donkey Voters!
And 45 of the 70 Idaho House of Representatives* are also Donkey Voters!
The voting record does not lie. If a legislator has voted wrong 31% of the time against basic conservative Republican values, that would be equivalent to a “D” grade in any civics classroom in the state of Idaho! Would that “D” stand for Democrat or for Donkey? That’s a really bad grade for a professing Republican.
Just to be clear, that legislator would be voting for Republican values only 69% of the time. If that’s not bad enough, understand this refers to the high end of the Donkey Voters. The worst of the bunch are voting only 42% of the time for conservative values right along side the registered Democrats. It is a big fat fib to run as a Republican and then vote consistently on the side of big government, big taxes, and big regulations. In kindergarten we used to taunt that kind of double crosser, “liar, liar, pants on fire”!
A bunch of progressive legislators are pretending to be legitimate members of the conservative party. And to make it worse the “Republican” governor is in cahoots with the same House and Senate Donkeys. No wonder Idaho is $5 billion in debt and expanding by leaps and bounds every year.
“Hey, wait just a minute,” a Donkey Voter might contend. “The Republican Party is a really big tent and has room for lots of diversity!” Well then, would you feel the same way if a crew showed up to your neighborhood driving a fire truck and moved from house to house setting fires? Would you say to your friends “No problem, we welcome all kinds of people here”? Or maybe you would say “They seem like nice guys; they just have a different point of view than the rest of us. After all, so far they are only burning down 6 of our 10 houses”. Wake up! They’re NOT firemen; they’re arsonists!
Do you think Republican Donkey Voters are proud of their votes? -No photo ops in the paper? Would they be trying to keep the truth of their voting record quiet in the overwhelmingly Republican state of Idaho?
In truth, the Donkey Voters are supporting the exact opposite of real Republican principles. Their voting record is aligned with the more liberal/progressive principles of the Democratic Party platform. –A philosophy of big, all-knowing government that manages and provides for almost every aspect of humanity (evidently because they believe people can’t be expected to provide for themselves). By the way, this is also known as Socialism.
Spend, Spend, Spend, Grow, Expand, Regulate! Big beautiful government is a magnificent idea… until it OWNS you. It’s like buying a 747 Jumbo Jet to get the free peanuts! No thanks. I’ll keep MY house, MY family, and MY money and provide my own snacks.
Throw the Donkeys out this coming election year and Make Idaho Great Again! MIGA
