"It is not the business of government to make men virtuous or religious, or to preserve the fool from the consequences of his own folly. Government should be repressive no further than is necessary to secure liberty by protecting the equal rights of each from aggression on the part of others, and the moment governmental prohibitions extend beyond this line they are in danger of defeating the very ends they are intended to serve." — Henry George

First, I want to say THANK YOU to all those who supported me in my campaign and to the hundreds of folks who voted for me. Unfortunately, we lost tonight as did a large number of conservative candidates around the state. Perhaps the most disheartening thing was the shockingly low voter turnout. In Ada County, it was less than 17%! We are now looking at a situation at both the State and County level that can only be described as "hold on to your wallets" because they will be coming for your money! We lost a discouraging number of battles tonight, but the fight for "More Freedom, Less Government" will continue nonetheless. Thank you again to those who came out in support of liberty today. I look forward to working with you in the future as we try to save our state from the coming onslaught of tax increases and attacks on personal freedom. May God have mercy on our souls.

Today we find out the course that the people of Idaho have selected. Will it be the dark path of tyranny and plunder or a return to personal liberty and a government small enough to fit inside the Constitution? You still have the opportunity to cast your vote for freedom! There is still time to resist the oppression of a government big enough to take everything you have. Vote for More Freedom and Less Government — Vote for Parrish!

Small steps in the right direction are good, but big steps in the right direction are better! VOTE FOR PARRISH, and we will take the BIG STEPS necessary to restore individual freedom and rebuild our economy by reducing taxes and regulations on businesses and individuals. We can achieve "More Freedom, Less Government"!

I encourage all candidates running for public office to read "The Law" by Frédéric Bastiat amzn.to/K3wH3I and "Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century" by Thomas E. Woods Jr. amzn.to/KRGBXC The principles contained in these two books explain both the proper role of government and how we should go about making sure that government doesn't deviate from that role.
