Magic Valley Liberty Alliance was founded in April of 2021 with the express purpose to impact our local area, educate our community, and restore our liberties.
I was blessed to have been born in this beautiful land of America, because of forefathers/mothers who immigrated to this consecrated land of freedom. Consecrated and ordained by God to be a land of Liberty for all those that chose to make this Isle of the sea their home. A land for whom God raised great men, who through inspiration, blood, sweat and tears, wrote the greatest living governing document ever to govern a people. By allowing the people to be governed, as the actual rulers of themselves thereby limiting the power given to the governmental heads, who were elected by the people.
Because of the blessing of a constitutional republic, I was automatically given the responsibility and right to make responsible choices. One of which was choosing my profession and earning a Master’s in Speech and Language Pathology, a profession that I served in for over 40 years. I have lived in Twin Falls for the last 16 years. I am now retired, along with my husband, enjoying family, friends and serving in my church and community; trying to do what I can to keep and/or regain our freedoms. I have been involved in helping with campaigns for local political candidates and national organizations dedicated to keeping and regaining or constitutional values locally and nationally.
I see these freedoms, as laid out in the Bill of Rights/ Constitution, being eroded away by big corporations; power hungry so called: anti-God- groups and individuals along with elected officials whose only objective is to create division, contention, hate and filling their own pockets by doing the bidding of others. Having absolutely no regard for the individual or love for their fellow men or country. This is the reason I have joined with Magic Valley Liberty Alliance here in Twin Falls.
We have a responsibility to counter despotism and it needs to begin within our own community then filtering up into our governing bodies at the county and state level. As Thomas Jefferson stated: “All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of Good conscience is to remain silent” and Benjamin Franklin: “… As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.
I consider the fact that I was born in the United States of America to be a blessing and a privilege. As Americans, it is our duty to defend the principles and freedoms that make our country unique and to answer the call when those freedoms are threatened.
A resident of Hansen, I am one of the many refugees from California who fled here to Idaho in search of a safe place to raise my children, a state with a constitutionally-adherent government that would uphold the interests of the people, rather than the interests of the politicians who occupy it. To my dismay, I discovered over the last year that Idaho is following very close on the heels of California in erosion of freedoms and individual rights.
The Constitution of the United States (as well as that of the state of Idaho) is a unique and powerful document that communicates from whom we derive our freedoms. God imbued every human being with the essential right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and the Constitution is our receipt for that promise here in America. It isn’t a magical document, it’s a physical representation of the invisible promise of God to every human being He created.
The Constitution and the nation it represents is under heavy attack, and I believe that sunlight truly is the best disinfectant. To that end, I joined the MVLA in order to help solid, conservative, constitutional individuals get elected, and to inform and educate the people of Twin Falls about the dire situation we all currently face. Idaho is on the precipice, and I pray to God that He will direct our steps.
“Every man who has amounted to anything has had the chief hand in his own education.”
I am a constitutionalist first and Republican second. I have been involved in politics and political campaigns on a state and local level for over twenty-five years. I have also been interested in global politics and the impact it has had on the US Federal Government. I have a strong interest in the influence that the labor movement has had thru the twentieth and twenty-first century. At this point in our nation’s history, I believe that we sit at a crossroads from which our country will either become stronger or lose its uniqueness as a democratic republic.
Our constitution, such a unique and special document that outlines our freedoms and a small central government is in jeopardy. I also believe there is a possibility of a type of balkanization within our country. So, it is increasingly important that we affirm that our state government is one that embraces strong values that created one of the greatest countries to exist.
As it becomes more apparent that our State elected officials may be our best hope in standing against a federal government that has overstepped its boundaries, I joined the MVLA to help elect strong state officials who will hold our federal government to its limitations.
“If not me then who? If not now, then when?”
Twin Falls has been my home since 1992.
I am blessed to be married to Pam in Twin Falls since 1978.
I’m a father of two children, and a grandfather of five.
I’ve been a licensed mental health therapist since 2007. I am a fine artist.
I have been a Christian activist for several years. You can find me with proliferation in prayer in front of Planned Parenthood every second and fourth Wednesday morning when surgical abortions are performed. You may run into me at Idaho Right to Life’s March For Life in January, or the Idaho 2nd Amendment Alliance rally at the Boise Statehouse. You can find me writing letters to our legislators and governor, campaigning for local candidates, researching bills, organizing rallies. It is out of love for God and neighbor we should to be on our knees in prayer for our deeply troubled country and community AND take action with our hands and feet, and our finances.
Why I joined MVLA: MVLA is needed to counter Republican legislators in the MV that disregard the Republican platform and violate our Constitution. The MV has been dominated by establishment/liberal Republicans for far too long. We are committed to getting liberty-loving Republicans into office. I hope you will join us in making the MV a RINO-free zone.
Glenneda and Tom Zuiderveld
We have been actively educating and engaging in our local, state and federal government for over 8 years. We have been involved in many different patriot movements, building relationships with elected officials, liberty groups and fellow constituents. We believe to make a difference we must first educate, encourage, and engage with others.
I (Glenneda) ran for House Representative for district 25 in 2018, with Tom running my campaign. We have been part of hard working teams that have organized political events all over the Magic Valley and our state.
We realize our freedoms and liberties are our responsibility. If we do to know what our constitutional God-given rights are, we will never know when they have been taken away.
We have devoted much time in the early years to learning our State and U.S. Constitutions, Federalist papers and founding history so that we would be better prepared to keep our Republic.
Our goal and purpose is to preserve our liberties for our children and grandchildren.
We draw strength and courage from our Creator, thru God alone we have been granted these unalienable rights. May He find us faithful and obedient.
“Constitutional Republic if you can keep it.” — Benjamin Franklin
