Mike Lee, stand your ground and have faith in the truth of the endorsement of
the american citizens who believe in our constitution and our bill of rights and
the declaration of independence are divine inspiration to the creation of this
nation. Manifest Destiny created what left wing democrat socialist and right
wing republican bureaucrats want to destroy.We the people own this
country, not radicals or extortionist or corporate america or welfare socialist.
Welfare or health care or personal greed is not a guaranteed government
obligation. Independence and free enterprise and pursuit of happiness by self
sufficiency is what it means to have freedoms.If the left and right
wing want socialism and corruption then move to Russia or Cuba and you can see
what it means to be government dependents. The equality of socialism means you
have nothing, no hope, no money, no freedoms.
Big news event...Tea Party loves Mike.
It is absolutely impossible to be an LDS Liberal. There is no such thing that
can exist...the abortion plank of the Democratic Party alone goes against
everything the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints teaches.
Blue:there is a difference now over 50 years ago. No one cared 50 years ago
about the dangers of socialism, and for LDS members, it didn't even matter
that one of their own prophets spoke out about it. times are a changing ,
however, and now the sleepyheads are starting to wake up. socialism is, in the
end, anti-god and by any measure, B.O. And many of our leaders are socialists
too. the patriots are standing up, so you can do all you want to silence us,
but we are not going away-ever!
Lds liberal: Ronald Reagan did increase federal spending and thee other things
that you mentioned. However, he did not give amnesty to undocumented
immigrants. He welcomed them as I do, wholeheartedly, but legally. His
visioning Had nothing to do with amnesty and everything to do with welcoming
them legally. The democrats don't believe in responsibility and the
republicans have their own issues with that that aren't much better. As
far as federal spending, Reagan increased it with policies that increased
productivity that Barack Obama would be as an ant standing by an elephant. It
is what happens when you understand that government needs to get out of the way
of the creative genius called a free American.
To "Blue" that is good. I don't want government coming up with any
more solutions. Every time they "fix" something we end up programs we
can't support and even more problems that need fixing.To
"LDS Liberal" I would take Ronal Reagan now over anybody else running.
The funny thing about the things that you mention that he did that were not very
conservative is the fact that he did them as part of a compromise with
Democrats. He compromised with the democrats to get the military funding he
wanted. They promised to fund his programs, and would cut funding to their
programs in the next budget. They never did cut their funding.The
emergency treatment laws were tacked onto a law that Reagan wanted that allowed
you to continue to pay the premiums on your employer health insurance to stay
covered.Learn some history. Reagan never banned assault weapons.
That was a 1994 law enacted by Clinton.The amnesty Reagan did was a
compromise with Democrats to get more border security. He didn't want it
but gave it so that the Democrats would support himFrom Reagan we
should learn that Democrats will lie.
bandersenSaint George, UTLDS Liberal: Although a screaming liberal
progressive, your scathing "defense" of the Republican is not only
humorous and ironic, ======== Do you know what I find
humorous and ironic?Kathleen Parker is spot on in her analysis of
the GOP in this article, and rather than refute or debate what everything
she says, you decide to go after me.FYI -- I happen to be a
member of the largest voting block, I am UNAFFILIATED.We
didn't leave the Republican Party in 1988, The Republican Party left
us.One other thing.Reagan won by a 98% landslide because
he had the Republican vote, AND the Moderate and Independant vote, AND a good chunk of the Democrats vote.Big Tent, Blue Dogs.The Republicans are surround by their own circular Tea-Party firing
squad.You might want to reconsider.
re:LDS LiberalInteresting that you found Reagan so appealing. Reagan
was very vocal as far back as the early 1970's regarding socialized
medicine being the gateway to Socialism in America and warning people to
recognize it and avoid it like the plague. It was Reagan also that preached
"bold colored" conservatism and not pale pastels. Reagan did articulate
his message well but the bottom line is his policies worked while those of
liberal Jimmy Carter had failed miserably. Reagan and his "its morning in
America again" commercials worked also with people because Americans were
going back to work in BIG numbers not like the phony and false happy talk from
Barack and Harry which America has now found to be a pack of deliberate lies (if
you like your insurance you can keep it). Today Reagan would be labeled as a
right wing nut by the main stream media and the far left politicians just like
Ted Cruz. Reagan's conservative principles are timeless and worked in the
80's just like they would work toady. Good is good and bad is bad
regardless of the decade where it is applied.
When people compare Mike Lee to Ronald Reagan I have to wonder if they even had
an idea about Ronald Reagan. There is such a universe of huge differences
between the two.Lets just say, Mike Lee "ain't no Ronald
Reagan". In most peoples eyes, he is a total failure to the Republican
Party, A failure to the United States of America and a Failure to Utah. I think
the great state of Utah will learn its lesson.
LDS Liberal: Although a screaming liberal progressive, your scathing
"defense" of the Republican is not only humorous and ironic, but
underscores in unvarnished truth the very things that independent minded
patriots know, which is the farce of partisanship that is played out between the
two major parties. If it isn't obvious that there is no difference between
the parties, there is nothing I can do but sit back yawn, laugh, and watch the
scramble for power and the incompetence continue, no matter which party is in
power. You are absolutely wrong about Tea-party people in regards to Ronald
Reagan. Ronald Reagan was the greatest president in the 20th century. A new
leader will arise perhaps to lead America back to prosperity and independence,
but it won't be a socialist, no matter how fond you or others are of its
philosophy. Socialism only leads to greater human suffering.
Wow!The gullibility of some people is absolutely amazing.I have yet to hear any ideas real SOLUTIONS to our nation's ills from
Mike Lee and his buddies.Complaining, Yes. Outright lies, Yes.
Pandering to extremists, Yes. Begging for money, Yes.Someone above
mentioned the idea of the Constitution hanging by a thread. Be careful, folks.
Mike Lee and his pals are armed with sharp scissors and are about as likely to
use them carefully as a two-year old might be.
The party found "a leader for the ages" in Reagan, who helped lead the
party toward "a conservative reform agenda," Lee said. ========== I hate it when Tea-Partiers associate themselves with
Saint Ronald Reagan.He was a RINO, and would be publically
stoned by them today.Increased Federal spending, Emergency
Medical coverage -- No one ever refused care in Emergency Rooms, regardless of
coverage, Banning assault and Hand guns, Amnesty for illegal
immigrants, just to name a FEW!BTW -- Ronald Reagan was
the LAST Republican many of us ever voted for.When Reagan left, we left
Is he going to shut down the government in January? If it was such a great idea,
why not try to defund a funded law again? Is that why the tea party endorsed him
I find it quite funny to hear people complain so loudly about congress - how
they are nothing but a bunch of good ole boys that are self serving career
politicians with a heavy dose of corruption to boot. They get nothing done -
they stand for nothing and political games-man-ship is what they are known for.
They take bribes from big business and they don't seem to care much at all
for the constitution as they run up HUGE debt year after year. All of this
applies to low-life characters like Harry Reid who by the way just exempted his
own staff from Obamacare. Mike Lee on the other hand is the exact opposite from
all of this. Mike is a brilliant lawyer having plead cases in front of the US
supreme court before becoming Senator. Mike ran on being a conservative and Mike
ACTED as a true conservative after elected. Mike was sent to Washington to
replace a good ole boy Bob Bennett who had become increasingly more blue as the
years passed. We need more like Mike!!
@ TMR: How did that ACA rollout working out for ya? Yah, I thought so.
where is orrin? we only hear from him every 6 years. my concern is that mitt
will run against lee. i want mitt, but i'd rather have him run for
Lee has already shown his true colors of greed and will not be able earn my
vote. Mike Lee was a mistake and should be voted out of office in 2016. I just
wish we didn't have to wait so long to get him out.
Let's see -- Mike Lee accepts an endorsement 3 YEARS before an
election.Mike Lee refuses to mention the Tea Party by name.Mike Lee
is trying to distance himself from his own Caucus.Mike Lee has drawn the
rath of nearly every Republican in Washington.Mike Lee is no longer seen
as an asset on the National stage.Mike Lee causes more damage to the
Republican brand, than polish.Mike Lee helped Republicans LOOSE more
elestions in other areas than helped.My guess is Mike Lee knows
he's in a heap of trouble.
Sen. Lee Is against a President who cannot (again cannot) tell the truth.Sen.
Lee is against that Presidents policies which are the product of those lies.
Sen.Lee is against Sen Reid who shoved the lie know as Affordable Health Care
down our throats and then excuses his staff from taking part in this
conspiracy.Sen. Lee will be my choice.
That's like Heinz Ketchup indorsing an Oscar Meyer Weiner. Surprise
Isn't the 2016 race in three years? A lot can happen in three years.
Mr. Lee and the Tea Party offer absolutely nothing in the way of solutions to
pressing national issues, only vacuous opposition to all things Democratic. We had to endure this exact same political phenomenon fifty years ago
with the John Birch Society.Tea Party rhetoric plays well to the
shrinking Tea Party base, but otherwise it's a losing proposition and
guarantees that no Republican will occupy the White House for at least another
Go Mike........he along with Cruz proved to be the only ones in Washington, D.C.
who tried to protect us from Obamacare! Lee has exposed the Obama, Pelosi,
REID, McCain, McConnell group. Time to clean house on Washington.
TMR-You have right to your opinion, I just don't know how on
God's green earth you came to it!
The chatter from some individuals and media outlets about a primary against
Senator Mike Lee is shameful and destructive. That's why we feel it's
important to come out early and announce our endorsement of Senator Mike Lee for
the U.S. Senate, Kremer said.______________Wow--what an
interesting comment about a politician who should have been in a primary against
a trusted conservative like Robert Bennett, but managed to avoid that primary
because of Utah's strange convention system. Utah is the only state in the
country where such a thing could have happened. It's time for a change.
Let's let the people decide. If the Tea Party folks nationally
want to endorse Senator Lee 3 years before the next election, that is their
right. But, at the very least let's have a system in place by the time the
election happens that allows all voters to participate in the primary.
I believe Mike Lee is the best Senator Utah has ever had by a long ways. But, I
have some advice for Mike Lee: Get out after two terms or you will be no better
than Harry Reid, Orrin Hatch, or a host of other incumbents that have been
bought and paid for by the Kingmen of Washington D.C. In other words, unless he
gets out, he will succumb to the power and corruption. The Democrats and
Republicans have both colluded to take us to the brink of destruction. Term
limits is an absolute necessity, including Mike Lee. In the meantime, I
absolutely support him because he represents the best in creating an opportunity
society based on free markets and absent crony capitalism, which is what Harry
Reid and Orrin Hatch represent. Go Mike Lee!
When the Constitution was "hanging by a thread" in that a small minority
of the government (the House of Representatives led by the Tea Party and Lee)
was trying to overturn the laws of the United States and the will of the
majority, who would have thought it would be Harry Reid that would step in to
save the day.
Everyone needs some love. Isn't that just so kind of them to do that.
Not many others around willing to do that, and that is a real live true
That's an excellent reason to "term limit" Mike Lee at one six-year
term in the Senate.
