We, the people of Idaho, want to be safe and use safe practices to keep our most vulnerable safe from any harm that might come.
We believe the framers of the US Constitution and the Idaho Constitutions were well aware of the danger of viruses when they drafted our Constitutions. They did not include exceptions to the limits on government when writing them in case something like a virus came along. They understood that the people had to be responsible for the health of the people and the government could never carry out this task.
Governor Brad Little, and by proxy, his Health and Welfare Director David Jeppesen, has violated his oath of office to uphold the United States and Idaho Constitutions.
We, the people of Idaho, ask you, our duly elected representatives, to convene and to begin proceedings to impeach Governor Little immediately on the following counts:
Count 1 - Violations of Article I Section 1 of the Idaho Constitution: "All men are by nature free and equal, and have certain inalienable rights, among which are enjoying and defending life and liberty; acquiring, possessing and protecting property; pursuing happiness and securing safety." It is our inalienable right to enjoy liberty and to pursue our own safety. Governor Little has taken both of these without cause.
Count 2 - Violations of Article I Section 4 of the Idaho Constitution: "The exercise and enjoyment of religious faith and worship shall forever be guaranteed..nor shall any preference be given by law to any religious denomination or mode of worship."
Governor Little has removed our exercise and enjoyment of religious worship without cause. Additionally, he has, in practice, given preference to one mode of worship (Facebook, Drive-In, etc) over another (In-person worship).
Count 3 - Violations of Article I Section 10 of the Idaho Constitution: "The people shall have the right to assemble in a peaceable manner, to consult for their common good; to instruct their representatives, and to petition the legislature for the redress of grievances." Governor Little has removed our right to assemble in a peaceable manner without cause.
Count 4 - Violations of Article I Section 17 of the Idaho Constitution: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated." Governor Little has removed our right against unreasonable seizure of our persons without due process.
Count 5 - Violations of Article IV Section 5 of the Idaho Constitution: "The supreme executive power of the state is vested in the governor, who shall see that the laws are faithfully executed." Governor Little has not faithfully executed the laws of Idaho. Instead, he, and his appointees have superseded them with his own dictatorial edict wherein he describes who may move, who may do business, and who may worship as he sees fit.
Count 6 - Violation of the Article I Section 10 of the US Constitution: "No State shall pass any . . . Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts." Governor Little and his appointees have impaired innumerable obligation of contracts in locking down the people and businesses who entered them whom they did not deem "essential."
Count 7 - Violation of the 1st Amendment to the US Constitution: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." This count restates count 2, but as a violation of the US Constitutional rights reserved for its citizens.
Count 8 - Violation of the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated." This count restates count 4, but as a violation of the US Constitutional rights reserved for its citizens.
Count 9 - Violation of the 5th Amendment of the US Constitution: "No person shall .... be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law." Governor Little has bypassed all state and federal laws and case-law which call for due process to be granted, even in the event of quarantine, before the right of life, liberty, and the use of property be removed.
Count 10 - Violations of the 14th Amendment of the US Constitution: "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." Governor Little and his designees have made a law which removes our privileges and immunities without due process. We have been deprived of life, liberty, and the use of our property without due process of law. We have seen an unequal protection of the law as some, as the Governor sees fit, have been given a pass to live their life as usual if deemed "essential."
