@Woodyff: "A large segment of our population consumes more than they contribute..."

Yes, and this large segment is call "the elderly." Our largest entitlement program is Medicare, and those old people certainly are taking more than they contribute. So I hope you plan to cover your own medical insurance and expenses in your retirement, because you don't want to be one of those freeloaders you so loudly decry.

I'm OK taking care of our elderly, because as a society we have decided that we will take care of the most vulnerable among us through programs such as Medicare and Social Security. I gladly contribute to those programs, knowing that my grandparents and my parents will be well taken care of.

To "Happy Valley Heretic" yes, the Democrats should answer why they paraded around so much. Ever since Hillary Clinton began the quest to find out about Obama's birth certificate, that is all I hear from about 1/3 of democrats is that Obama was born in Kenya.

Yes Hillary may have raised the question but the Radio comedians, republicans and their poster boys made it there own.

-because 97.8% of Republicans I've talked to believe it. Taking your lead I made up a bigger number, so now I'm right, right?

I would like to know how many votes she got in Saratoga Springs. I don't know of anyone in our city who voted for her. That says a lot. She is a nice person, but was not qualified for the job.

Mia Love lost because Matheson is not that liberal guy the far right paints him to be. I was impressed with Utah voters. Even conservatives here in Utah value Matheson's leadership over a rookie was being used by the far right to represent them. Luckily Utah's voters saw through this.

Love has an impressive story. She is young. pretty and diverse, but her politics turned it's back on her own success story, relative to others cut from the same cloth to achieve the so called American dream like Mia did. I applaude Mia's rise, but she was not ready to represent Utah, and needs to reevaluate her own stance like the rest of the GOP on where they want to go. I hope the stop pandering the richest %1

Both major parties HAVE TO COME TO THE MIDDLE. So many people on the right watch FOX and those on the left watch MSNBC. Hannity and Rachel are making tons of money and polarizing Their particular party to the extreme weakening our country. Good luck to us all.

Somebody surviving without a political affiliation somewhere in the middle.

I just couldn't buy Love's insistence that she's a fiscal Conservative. Her record showed otherwise. To balance her budget she raised city taxes three (!!!) times and even raised her own salary. Fiscal restraint starts in one's own backyard. Matheson was no perfect choice either, but we know what we’re getting with him.

"To "Happy Valley Heretic" yes, the Democrats should answer why they paraded around so much. Ever since Hillary Clinton began the quest to find out about Obama's birth certificate, that is all I hear from about 1/3 of democrats is that Obama was born in Kenya."

This statement lacks almost all credibility. I would love to see a single source that backs this statement up. Not eve 1/3rd of Tea Partiers subscribe to this Donald Trump driven issues. When you have the Donald offering 5 million for proof as publicity stunt, and still no credible proof is delivered, you know this dog just doesn't have legs.

What a sad attempt to race-bait this conversation. Mia deserves far more than this.

You learn to win through loosing. Mia will be smarter next time, and will drive her own campaign next time for what ever office she runs for......

TRUTH: There are currently 42 Black Democratic members of Congress and only 2 Black Republicans. There are 23 Hispanic Democratic members of Congress, including Democratic Senator Robert Menendez from New Jersey, and only 8 Republicans. All 11 Asians in Congress, including 2 US Senators, belong to the Democratic Party.
