All Men Are By Nature Free And Equal
The first article of our Idaho State Constitution reads as follows: “All men are by nature free and equal, and have certain inalienable rights, among which are enjoying and defending life and liberty; acquiring, possessing and protecting property; pursuing happiness and securing safety.”
The second article is also key to our way of life in Idaho. It reads: “All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for their equal protection and benefit, and they have the right to alter, reform or abolish the same whenever they may deem it necessary; and no special privileges or immunities shall ever be granted that may not be altered, revoked, or repealed by the legislature.”
Scott Herndon is the only candidate for our District One Senate seat who fully understands the meaning and importance of these two declarations. More importantly, he is the only candidate for our District One Senate seat who understands where the principles inherent in these two articles flow from and why they need to be protected. All those who agree with these first two articles of our State Constitution should vote Republican. Vote for Scott Herndon to represent us in the Idaho State Senate.
