One of the 278 'party changers'

| July 9, 2024 1:00 AM

I am 91, a retired nurse born in North Dakota. I have lived and voted across this great nation. I have not been a member of a tribe or cult.

I am an independent and vote for the best candidate, be they Republican, independent or Democrat, who represents the Constitution, and rule of law, not rule of leader.

Now the other 277 and myself are being threatened. A member of our own community wrote June 9 that she has all 278 names (how?) of the "party changers." She will be outing us to the community so they will know who we are (why?) and what's going on in the shadows. (What shadows?)

Also according to her we lie and cheat. Give me a break!

I was taught not to lie, cheat, steal and to respect each other. Please stop the hate, name-calling, insults and blaming everyone for whatever.

If Idaho had been an open primary state this wouldn't have been necessary.

Please vote Nov. 5 for open primaries so everybody will be free to vote for their choice!

Let's hope we can all sing "Happy Days Are Here Again" soon.
