SAINT ANTHONY, IDAHO – Retired Nuclear Project Planner Darnell Shipp officially announces his candidacy for the Idaho House of Representatives for Legislative District 31. Representing the good people of Limhi, Clark, Fremont, and Jefferson counties.
Darnell recently retired from a 30-year career at the Idaho National Laboratory. His retirement was earlier than he planned, since he refused the COVID vaccine, standing on the principle of “I
will decide what goes into my body!” This demonstrates his reputation of strength and integrity and shows how he will stand for the rights and safety of the individual.
“There is a huge ripple effect that is spreading out over our great nation, from the Federal government, and from other states. I have deep concerns for the ‘Idaho way of life,’ with Idaho
being one of the last strongholds to our Constitutional Republic. I fear many lawmakers are caving into big money and self-interest, putting up for sale what we hold most precious and
sacred to our Idaho way of life. We must stop this ripple effect before it turns into tidal waves!”
Darnell is a strong advocate to protect the right to life, protecting Idaho family values, and parents’ rights. “I will stand for truth in education, support the idea of money following the student for those families that are looking at alternative ways of educating their children, I will push to end common core”.
Darnell believes in limited government (not abolishing government), but limiting it to parameters of the Constitution. “The rights of the people will not be infringed!” Darnell wants to strengthen Idaho sovereignty by upholding the First Amendment (The Freedom of Religion, The Freedom of Speech, The Freedom of the Press, and The Freedom to Assemble), Second Amendment (The right of the people to keep and bear arms), Fourth Amendment (Protects the people from unreasonable search and seizure), and Tenth Amendment (The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the states or to the people). Stop Biden’s (the liberal left’s) federal overreach.
“George Washington knew and understood in the war of Independence that control of the Hudson River was a critical element of victory. He commissioned resources to forge a chain
75-80 tons that they floated across the Hudson River on logs at West Point. Using this amazing chain as a tool kept the British ships from navigating up the Hudson River. We must
use the United States Constitution, 10th amendment (Enumeration of power), and the Idaho Constitution as tools to fortify our state sovereignty.”
