It is a decision you must make on your own, whether to squelch your fierce independence for this election cycle, or go GOP and subject our nation to the horrors of Tea Party governance. But when the scythes and hoes come out, don't say I didn't warn you.

Idaho Republican Party Chairman J. Kirk Sullivan introduced a bill to the Senate State Affairs Committee this morning that would force primary elections to be open to registered party members only.
Word came this afternoon that the Idaho Attorney Generals office has filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit against Secretary of State Ben Ysursa.
The plaintiffs in the case are 71 members of the Idaho Republican party, who filed the suit in an effort to close state Republican primaries.
