I voted for Mitt Romney, however, with the calamities that have overtaken this
country by this current administration, I am more in line with candidates like
Dave Brat who won the Primary over Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia in
the House. I listened to the interview with him on FOX. He ran on sound
Republican principles. I want those candidates who actually listen to Americans
about the serious problems that face our country and then will go to Washington
and keep their promises. We need to get our fiscal house in order and return to
the free enterprise system. We haven't made it work with BIG government,
unions, special interests, regulations by the thousands, and Washington
lobbyists. We need to open the pipeline, create real jobs and close the border
against all these thousands of illegal people streaming into our country right
now. I want common sense government. No Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, and the likes.
I'd even vote for Dr. Ben Carson right now. All this money
spent in courting hopefuls in Deer Valley while seeking the media attention
actually turns me off. Sorry, Mitt! Not this time....God bless
"Former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Thursday kicked off his
annual policy retreat that puts big-money donors together with Republican
contenders for the White House in 2016."Government for sale!Government for sale!Step right up and buy what you want!Government for sale!
I agree, "old man," but I think that the product line is more who's
for sale, than whatOne bright spot is that Wisconsin's Governor
Scott Walker does not appear to have been on the list.
I wish Romney had invited Cruz. Only Cruz and Lee have impressed me as serious
about sticking up for Constitutional principles and willing to tell the people
the truth about Clinton. The last thing we need is a Republican who will give in
to pressure to raise taxes, increase spending, retain big governmental programs
and continue deficit spending. We need drastic, bold solutions to all the
problems the current administration has done nothing except exacerbate.
@BYUalum"...All this money spent in courting hopefuls in Deer
Valley while seeking the media attention actually turns me off. Sorry, Mitt! Not
this time.......".I can only imagine how difficult it was for
you to make that comment.Thank you for your candor.
Where is Dr. Ben Carson? The best candidate and he is not invited. Guess he
has too much common sense (or is it "uncommon"?) to be included in this
He has my vote.
Re: oldschool "I wish Romney had invited Cruz. Only Cruz and Lee have
impressed me..."Romney may not have invited Cruz because of his
dominionist anointing as king. You all probably need to get familiar with
nutty-religionist Texas. Ted Cruz is the poster child.
I just watched the movie about Ben Carson, a while back I watched the movie
about Romney, honestly after watching both movies, I would vote for Carson over
Romney and I am a Romney fan. That is a shame that Dr Carson was not invited.
I wonder how much Romney is raking in as "fees" for holding this
@Herbert Gravy 10:49 p.m. June 12, 2014Where is Dr. Ben Carson? The
best candidate and he is not invited. Guess he has too much common sense (or is
it "uncommon"?) to be included in this gathering.---------------If I needed a good neurosurgeon I'd go to Dr.
Carson. Since I want a good president and have no need for a neurosurgeon,
I'll go to someone who has both common sense and experience -- that's
NOT Dr. Carson. I'd go to someone who also has too much common sense to go
to this gathering -- Jon Huntsman Jr.
Run Romney! Run!
Mitt Romney and his BIG MONEY DONERS is proof of how our elections system is
controlled by the wealthy.Look at the wage scale, price of fuel,
cost of insurance and feeding your family these are just a few examples of how
the rich control costs. They grossly profit from every aspect of our lives. How wonderful they meet at Deer Valley to exchange favors and manipulate
our future for profit.
Who cares?None of them will be president!
With the opportunity apparantly coming for a Republican win I'll bet half
the Republican Party is going to be there.
Hey Old School let me give you an example of a drastic, bold solutions to all
the problems big corporations face. Why don't we let them have their way
and rob your retirement, rob your 401K and leave you homeless in the streets.
Then they could create more jobs at lower wages, pollute air an water, raise
prices for profit. Then they could segregate your towns and have your perfect
all white society.Ya I really don't want your vision of
Originally the retreat was scheduled in West Valley City, but it was changed to
Deer Valley at the last moment.
Desire belief and expatiation is what he lacked the first time, now I have my
Mr. Romney is certainly a gluten for punishment.He must have oodles of
options of ways to spend his time these days.Did Mitt invite and encourage
John Huntsman to attend this fun event?
Corporate America wins, American pupilic looses and picks up the tab.
If naysayers take the time to look at their beloved Tribune. Even they had to
print the facts. Obama is now as popular as Bush! Congratulations!Hopefully this translates into the loss of the Senate to the democrats who
have inflicted twice the damage that Bush ever did. In fact more than all of
the losers back to Washington combined.Let's vote in people
with brains, rather than those with money. The fact of the matter is, the more
money you have, the more people you can buy. The better the image you can
portray. The better you can tear your opponent down. Couple that with a media
that can't ask a tough question and follow it up with more tough questions.
Now marry that to a voter base that is more worried about a bumper sticker
slogan than actually understanding what they're voting for. And wala you
have todays political system and a failing economy and country.NO
ONE is going to benefit from the failure of this country. Illegals, other
countries....everyone is going to lose big time if we can't get our heads
out of the sand.
So, will this event air on a 2014 version of "lifestyles of the rich and
shameless"?Check you television listings...
"Utah Democratic Party Chairman Peter Corroon said while Republicans
"gather in luxury""Does the Democratic Party really
believe that citizens think they only meet in hotels with $30 rooms & talk
while doing humanitarian work? Has anyone seen a poor person from either party
run for office? Romney has proven he knows how to operate businesses, several of
them over the years with a lot of success, now everyone may not agree with all
of his business ideas just as we shake our heads when we see many local business
make decisions we would never make, sometimes those are successful decisions
other times not, regardless of that it is the business owners decisions to make
& consequences to deal with. Obviously Romney has learned how to market well
& how to network & this retreat is all about networking which is
something you have to do in the political venue. He would probably do well in an
appointed position of the Presidential Cabinet in a financial position that is
where he could really help this country & his religious affiliations should
not be an issue, LDS men have served in these types of positions before.
Only one subject needs the full attention of "we the people". Our
equality is broken. Corporate bribery is provable in any court of law. No one
has been able to open their instinct driven mouths to say bribery must be
stopped. Not Republican, or Democrat or libertarian, etc. Not one leader can
say, to the media: BRIBERY: The offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting of
something of value for the purpose of influencing the action of an official in
the discharge of his or her public or legal duties. I agree that corporate
political contributions are not lawful and violate state and federal bribery
statutes because of "corporate mission laws" that protect share holders
funds (from fraud/embezzlement); funds must be spent on profit, potential
profit or humanitarian expenditures only. So intent cannot be freedom of speech
but seeking influence for profit.Name(print)_signIf you believe that
corporate contributions (under corporate mission laws) are lawful: Sign down
here instead:Name(print)_sign(print this and try to get any public
official to sign their true beliefs. Either bribery is a crime or the U.S.
Supreme court's ruling as "Freedom of Speech" is correct and
lawful. Open Mouths..
If Mr. Romney was a "gluten" for punishment, he would have
"oodles" of noodles.
They are gathering to figure out whom to nominate after Hillary Clinton's 2
LOU Montana,It's not the Big Corporations that are stealing our
wealth, retirement and freedoms but our Federal Government. The overt,
overbearing taxes and hidden taxes on the working class in this country are
stealing, not only our wealth and future, but our children's. Do you think
our younger generations are going to see any social security. The answer is NO
and our healthcare system will soon be what the VA medical system has become.
I don't like what's going on at Deer Valley anymore than Obama
meeting with the "Hollywood Elite" or the Silicon Valley mega rich to
raise literally Millions of Dollars.
Deseret News censored my prior comment about this being an oligarchy type
meeting in Deer Valley, Utah. This meeting symbolizes what is wrong with
politics in Utah and the nation. Our political situation is much more deplorable
than it was in the 1770's.
LOU Montana, you just laid out, beautifully, the true heartfelt, but hidden and
successfully miss-attributed as a "Republican" plan, intent of the
Democrat party. Do a little historical research to understand that the Democrat
Party is the root of all of the overt racism in this country...ranging back to
the establishment of the KKK; moving forward to embrace Margaret Sanger's
plan to eliminate, what she called "inferior" people of color, through
abortion; on to the Dems near hysterical attempt to prevent the Republican Party
from passing the Civil Rights act. Right up to today's ongoing campaign to
keep Blacks believing that they cannot make it without handouts from the
government, thus keeping them "on the plantation" and in line when it is
time to vote (If those Republicans get elected y'all will lose your monthly
dole from the Federal Plantation Authority!).
Looks like the GOP kingmaker has brought together those who can help his family
gain more wealth and those who represent the interest of those at the top or the
economic food chain. I wonder what they will talk about. Will they have any
new ideas to move the country forward? I doubt it. It will be a love fest with
the defined by what they all hate in common. Too bad that America wastes so
much potential by infighting. It won't matter in the long run what happens
at Deer Valley; because with out immigration reform and the Hispanic vote, the
is no way that a republican can win the white house. Thanks Mitt and company.
@U-tard...Once again. Incorrect and inaccurate posting. This luxury
"retreat" was never scheduled on being located in WVC. Where would they
have it? The Best Western on 3500 South & Decker Lake Drive? Wake up man!
A peaceful revolution ending unfair, unjust laws. Doing this one moral act
against our instinct program, will free mankind with choice. To follow
Satan/instinct's direction, or be moral creatures and DO WHAT IS RIGHT.
Belief in God/atheist, do we follow our conscience? Obviously we have been
operated by instinct mechanism to do nothing for the repair of unfair government
practices/laws. When all we really have to do; is open our mouths and
demonstrate logic of our true current reality... Unjust ..Right here in America,
We dishonor our oath to God and Country to Now remain Silent...Bribery must be
stopped this Day. Not some time in the near future.. Rationalization created by
sub-conscience mechanism operating reality for your conscious mind.Finally. Do we do this moral thing? To take action, to honor each
other's rights, Our equality under all laws. Goal; Ethical, logic driven
society, knowing right from wrong. Respecting others rights. We are more than
animals driven by Satan/instinct programs.???Repair what is broken, Our
equality is the only moral path to be on. Nothing may defy this rule of
constitutional law.Citizens are Equal Under All Laws And Practices....Open Mouths.
@Bomar, So who do you think owns our government if not Big Corporations.
I would like to see Dr. Ben Carson as our next President of the United States.
Everything I've read and the programs have been very convincing that he
would be a honest, articulate, humble and good choice for our USA. Next time you
get a chance to listen to him - do it...you will understand what I am saying.
He's intelligent, he's a man of integrity and he truly loves our
United States of America.
After Cantor's loss, hopefully republican will understand voters are
alienated by big money politics.
Rand Paul is head and shoulders above anyone else. Of course the controlled
media will campaign against him just like they did to his Dad, so seek the truth
on your own.
The current Govt. has already been bought and paid for. The current power
brokers have only gotten more wealthy, and the middle class has suffered for it
and will continue to for a very long time. Those they purported to want to help
have only languished with no real and lasting help in sight. Its time to change,
it's time that real jobs are created and that will only happen with the
appropriate environment. Not the hostile environment that the current
administration is dedicated to pushing down this countries throats.
