I've heard this sort of argument before -- the old "Bush-bashing" canard -- and it strikes me as fundamentally nonsensical. Why would I be against Bush if he wasn't, to overgeneralize, doing a lot of harm to the country I love and betraying certain ideals we hold, such as democracy and the rule of law? Why else would I be against Bush? If it weren't for that, he's just a guy like any other.
Remember the Luna Laws?
We elect our leaders to protect our rights, not to limit them.
But just this week, the Senate State Affairs Committee passed a bill to limit our rights to petition the government with initiatives and referendums. Remember the Luna Laws? Those were rejected because of the initiative process. The bill, S1108, makes it much more difficult to get initiatives on the ballot.
Help us spread the word about this bill!
Also please consider a contribution of $5, $25 or $50 to help us activate other Idahoans to preserve our rights!

If S1108 passes, it will become that much easier for our lawmakers and government officials to ignore the will of the people. It will also make so hard to get an initiative on the ballot - only well-funded and highly organized groups could afford to engage in the initiative process.
