Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between church and State.
2nd CD: We have a candidate!
Debbie Holmes announced her intention to run for Congress against Mike Simpson in the 2nd CD at Ahavath Beth Israel synagogue in Boise. A brief platform says, "Debbie Holmes for Congress...A Democrat for Idaho District #2. Mortgage relief for the people, not the banks...Education instead of incarceration....Bill of rights is not negotiable...Healthcare for all....Support our troops, not defense contractors."
You can check out the campaign at her Facebook group (Facebook login required).
If you want to collect signatures, download the form, get signatures and take it to your county clerk. The filing deadline is THIS FRIDAY, so time is of the essence.
Thank you, Debbie. We all breathe a sigh of relief tonight.
