The Day Came & Went, But Your Work Continues, Constituent Activist

The day came and went. We exercised your political franchise by voting and are on the brink of recalling Mia Love back to Utah.

Paul Huntsman Is Wrong on Mia Love

The editorial board at The Salt Lake Tribune should rescind its endorsement of Rep. Mia Love immediately.  Paul Huntsman, the owner of the newspaper and part of that staff, was naïve in his recent interview on the newspaper's podcast, Trib Talk.  He doesn't see the clear and present danger we face today if Love is … Continue reading Paul Huntsman Is Wrong on Mia Love

Citizens of CD4 Are Crazy -That’s a Good Thing

While the editorial board of The Salt Lake Tribune flaccidly endorsed Rep. Mia Love, the people of congressional district four took to their keyboards, to their minds, and to their hearts to provide a different assessment of the future ahead –including me.

Remember when Mia love held 85 townhall meetings with her constituents? You don’t? Yeah me either. But that’s what she said at the debate on Monday. How do I know this isn’t fake news?

We’ve all seen it before.  That video where a cyclist is in the home stretch, sees the finish line, lifts both arms in triumph of a celebration they see as all theirs and then seemingly out of nowhere they get beat -sometimes they fall and get hurt.  Why does this happen?  Literally because they let … Continue reading Prop 2 Drops 15 Points, Time To Volunteer

End Gerrymandering – Vote Yes On Prop 4

“My vote doesn’t matter because I’m in Utah.” If you’ve said this, it’s time to shut up and vote. We’ve all said it at one time or another. But guess what? You’re wrong this time. One item on the ballot can change the future of our elections COMPLETELY. We’re voting on three tax questions, when … Continue reading End Gerrymandering – Vote Yes On Prop 4

Liars Say They’ll Pass Medical Marijuana -Sounds Like A Lie

Only a sucker would believe that lawmakers will do something to address medical marijuana if Proposition 2 fails or barely squeaks by on Election Day.  Just a couple days ago a “compromise” was reached between members of the state legislature, the LDS Church, and Libertas but there is absolutely nothing guaranteeing that anything will be … Continue reading Liars Say They’ll Pass Medical Marijuana -Sounds Like A Lie

Wanna Blow Something Up? Then Vote!

Fellow American, you and I are under attack -we are under the barrage of heavy artillery!!! The stovepipes pointed at us are comprised of wickedly devastating ordinance and armament.
