Aside from his support of global warming (a carbon tax and population reduction scheme), Rocky just might be coming around (a little)....

Who cares what this guy does, he's insignificant and an embarrassment to the state of Utah.

Re: 4BS, I completely agree. My first thought in reading the article was, "who cares"!

Rocky Anderson, the trust fund kid and flower child of the 60's who benefitted from the Anderson Lumber dynasty in the Mountain West, is still trying to "find himself" after all of these years... Only to find that, he is so extreme in his political views that he can't remain a member of the most left-wing era of Democratic party politics in American history. That's pretty amazing, even for Rocky.

I knew Rocky was "out there," but this seals the deal.

Maybe he'd feel more at home in Vermont?

@Gr8Dane Nah, I think he'd be more at home in the Netherlands.

AMEN Rocky! Thanks for speaking up with few others will. The GOP is only out to wreck America to insure Obama is not re-elected and caterer to the richest so that they stay in power. The Democrats are gutless cowards who won't stand up for anything.

Thanks Rocky, unfortunately, our country is going down the drain and most won't realize it until the middle class is destroyed and the rich/corporations control everything!

Albemar: Wow. What a sad point of view. Good luck with that attitude.

Albemar, are you saying that "Obama" is a caterer? I think he was a community organizer before he became President, not a caterer. And actually, I think you must have written what you were trying to say backwards -- the GOP is trying to make sure Obama is not re-elected before he wrecks America. Just trying to help you get things right, no thanks needed.

Albemar you might be right as for your detractors simple minds spout simple lies.

@Cactus and md
I think albemar said exactly what they meant and I agree the Democrats are spineless weasels that give into the GOP which are nothing but to lap dogs of corporations.

Who exactly are corporations George? How do the come into existence? How many Americans would not have jobs if there were no corporations?

Way to buy in to the class warfare.

Sounds like the Communist Party might be the perfect fit for Ricky Anderson. That way he can force the agenda he wants onto the American people.

Apparently this is the week the wind is blowing that direction. Rocky seems to always follow whichever way the wind is blowing. Go Rocky!

We can all be very grateful Rocky is no longer mayor of Salt Lake, and that he has no other public office. Sheesh, what planet is he from anyway?
