The Rachel Report
Monday, March 21, 2022
Thank you for joining our weekly Rachel Report!
Here, I will be updating Idahoans on weekly events that I will be participating in or speaking at, meet and greets being hosted for my campaign, and current events in our state, district, and legislature. I will also be sharing some of my favorite historical highlights that we are calling Liberty Gems!
As our campaign gains momentum in our district, I have been overwhelmed by the amount of support we have received. Idahoans are ready for conservative change in our state!
Last Thursday marked two months until primaries on May 17th! That means we have a lot of work to do in the next 57 days!
This Weeks Liberty Gem

Recently, I have been thinking a lot about our great nation’s origin. After many years of tyrannical rule, excessive taxation, and lack of representation in governmental affairs and decisions; the colonists began resisting England with rebellions throughout the colonies.
These rebellions culminated in representatives from the 13 colonies gathering at the Virginia Convention between 1774 and 1776 to determine their future with England.
This was a pivotal moment in American history. Had tyranny progressed to a critical enough point that action was necessary? Would their rebellion “catch on” or be quashed?
Their reputations, wealth, families, and lives were on the line.
At the second Convention meeting in 1775, Patrick Henry famously asked the question that must have been hovering beneath the surface of every Founding Father’s mind. And to it, he offed his own answer: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” Henry’s infamous speech was the call to action that first unitedly rallied the colonists.
Until this point, there had been no singularly focused action against England. One year and two months following, the Declaration of Independence was signed.
This has become one of my favorite moments in our country’s story. We are at a similarly pivotal moment in American history. Has tyranny become supreme in our land? Considering our government’s COVID-19 response, yes.
Has liberal legislation gotten to the point that action is necessary? Excessive taxation, “wokism” in our schools, and increased federal encroachment demands that we answer yet again: yes.
The decisions we make this year are paramount to our survival as a nation and as a state.
I believe that the election on May 17, 2022 is the most consequential election the state of Idaho has ever had. These primaries WILL determine whether our state returns to its conservative roots or liberal ideology sinks its grip deeper into our government, schools, culture, and land.
We CAN keep our beloved state conservative… But now is the time to unitedly rally behind this fight.
Let’s keep Idaho, Idahome!
