"Think of it this way. Someone who objects to war due to his religious conscience has a right to be a conscientious objector and not serve in the military, even were there to be a draft.

The same applies here." - Jonathan H. Adler in Washington Post

New IDP Chair Bert Marley: Visionary Leader

Idaho is at a tipping point.

Malcolm Gladwell, in his book, “The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Difference,” describes this moment in Idaho’s history very well:

“Look at the world around you. It may seem like an immovable, implacable place. It is not. With the slightest push—in just the right place—it can be tipped.”

After so much time under the Idaho GOP’s political yoke, it can take an act of courage to embrace the truth that Idaho is on the precipice of achieving balance. It’s unsurprising that the Lewiston Tribune opinion page dons the emotional armor of skepticism and cynicism.
