Talk about frivolous "message" bills...There are lots of
problems with the selection of nominees at all levels. This fixes noe of them,
but only give Utah politicians the illusion of "doing something".This is a bill that we don't need.
Would be a refreshing change to not hear 'Iowa' all the time.
You would think there would be a better way to do this. Why not have all the
states in the same region have their primaries on the same day and rotate which
region goes first? The current system is just crazy.
Perhaps our legislature would do well to spend that 1.6 million dollars in some
place in the state where it is needed.Remember the statement from
Senator Dirkson years ago: A billion here, a billion there, and pretty soon
we're talking about real money.Dear Utah legislature: A
million 600 thousand here and there can also amount to real money. Where is
the conservative philosophy that our legislators claim?
Tilting windmills since everyone, including national republicans know it
doesn't matter in Utah who wins the Republican nomination, the Republican
nominee will win the vote in Utah.
Ok, so the party that's been apoplectic about voter fraud (after all,
it's the only way "that one" could have been elected president) and
the need for seven forms of identification before anyone can vote is now
proposing an *online* election?I think we can be pretty sure that
this will never actually happen.
It all sounds pretty silly . . . So silly, l'm guessing the Tea Party is
all for it. So Utah is going to be waving and shrieking "Look at me!" to
the national media?How are you going to feel when the national media
refuses to look?What makes you think the rest of the country will
even turn their heads to watch a bunch of Utah Mormons vote Republican
again?Think about the image of Iowa compared to the image of Utah.
Iowa is America's heartland . . .Mom and apple pie . . . typical
America.Utah is Utah..
Why spend $1.6 Million taxpayer money when we could do it free March
Neighborhood Caucus meetings. Vote No on HB 410
The primary is a good idea to replace the caucus, but the idea of jumping ahead
of New Hampshire and Iowa is a bad idea. It would make Utah look needy, and
Utah does not need to look needy.But the primary is a good idea.
With a caucus, it's easier for the likes of the Koch brothers to grease the
palms of the most influential people in the caucus.At least with a
primary, everyone gets a chance to vote.
Rep. Jon Cox, R-Ephraim, needs to do a little investigation before changing up
the order of primary elections. Does he know that New Hampshire has it in their
constitution that they are to be the first primary? Does he know they were going
to change it from January to December or November last presidential election?
Does he remember the problems that Florida and others ran into with the GOP when
they tried to get out ahead of NH in the last presidential election? I
know about dreaming, but I also know about waking up. This isn't going to
What a waste of tax dollars!! Especially when The republican nominee will get
the majority of the Utah vote.
