Voters vs Politicians in Idaho
« on: October 04, 2002, 03:05:30 pm »

U.S. Term Limits
by Paul Jacob
"Is it possible for a politician to behave honorably? Idaho
voters may be wondering, after the lopsided way state
legislators killed their term limits law last winter."

Who is running Idaho?
The people or the entrenched politicians?

And they roam the world at will.

Otosan's link didn't work for me, Hank.  Maybe because the story was so old, perhaps?


Since this story came out, Idaho voters,  by a very tiny margin, decided to allow the repeal of term limits.  They decided that the voters would decide at election time whether a politician gets the boot or not, just like the independent voters in Idaho decided long ago not to register with party affiliation.

Poeple around here are still pretty mad about this and the ones I know are planning to vote against any incumbent
