Every city has its political differences and that understandable in my opinion it happens to create some sort of balance in most cases. Boise is no different, people have their political views and sometimes you see the extremes on both sides of the equation however, Boise in general does a good job of respecting each others beliefs.

What ever happened to live and let live? Whatever happened to equality? Whatever happened to Boise kind?
