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.

Conservatism Based On Cruelty Is Not What I Signed Up For

Nearly 20 years ago this politically disinterested European met and fell in love with a young Republican political scientist from Idaho fresh from her time working in a congress ran by Newt Gingrich.  This was my introduction to American conservatives and their political ideology.

Every single American knows that our campaign finance laws create legalized bribery, a quid pro quo that leaves our representatives totally beholden to people who ARE NOT their constituents -but absolutely their masters.

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
