|Berdie Sanders asking for world peace and I know this meant a lot to my Native/Indian brothers and sisters.|
Alaskans are tired of the craziness and so are people in Idaho, another red state whose percentage for Bernie was 78%. In Idaho permit-less concealed carry for cities was just passed, they already had it everywhere else, it was so idiotic even the very conservative Obamacare hating Governor Otter was concerned, but he signed it. Also in Idaho the minimum wage is $7.25/hr, the crazy Idaho legislators just passed a law that communities can't raise it for their people. There are lots of working poor in Idaho, but no expansion of Medicaid.
Being in Boise Idaho I was able to go to the Bernie Sanders Rally, my first surprise was the long lines. In order to go I had to leave my laptop in the electronics lock up at a homeless shelter with systems that promote theft (it was very hard, but I had to go see Bernie), I already had cameras and a large number of SD cards stolen from their electronics lockup and much more from their storage. I also had to leave my backpack and its contents as no bags were allowed. Somehow I did not have an anxiety stroke. Being homeless I had my pockets stuffed which they made me empty, "...this pocket has butt wipes and candy an interesting combination...oh yea this pocket has of all things tissue...oh and here is some more tissue, imagine that from me...flashlight with emergency flasher because Boise drivers will kill you when you cross the street...", it went on like that and they did laugh.

I was really surprised by Idaho and kept writing everywhere that Bernie needed to go to Alaska, a state of independent people. Also people in Alaska are sick of the corruption and ugly behaviors of both the Republicans and Democrats. Then I thought hey, if Idaho can have a caucus and pick Bernie by a landslide so can Alaska, so I posted this on line.

This video is crappy due to people around me going nuts and so was I, wild clapping, jumping etc. The chairs were vibrating. It was wild. What Bernie says about Idaho is the important part.
This video is better after people settled down. I wanted to show the crowd because the people were amazing. I just kept laughing and saying this is a red state.
