Esquire I agree with what you have said and thank you for making me laugh
Cats: Realcourage DOES "get it". S/he is absolutely accurate and correct in
what s/he says. You apparently are the one who doesn't get it.Lee
will not be a good representative for Utah. He is not a Constitutional scholar
(he has, at best, a superficial knowledge of the document, BUT does know how to
use it as a tool when representing a client). He will NOT work for the benefit
of Utah's citizens and the citizens of the United States -- he will just work
for his own political and personal interests. He will be toxic to the state and
the country. We deserve better.To Pam Dale -- I'm adamantly
opposed to Mike Lee, but I'm not on the left. I'm a true conservative (not a
right-winger). As a law school graduate, I can tell you that Lee isn't close to
being a Constitutional scholar. He doesn't represent the values of the people
of Utah, unless you're saying that they are right wing radical extremists.Yes, Lee will probably receive the most votes. That does not bode
well for Utah and the United States.We deserve better than Lee.
This election belongs to Mike Lee. He has devoted his life to this run for US
Senator. He is a Constitutional Scholar, and listening to what the majority of
Utahans want right now, it is his particular experience and expertise.
Listening to disgruntled folks on the Left go after Mike in a mean-spirited way
does nothing positive for our state. Let's proudly send Mike Lee to Washington.
Let's be glad that Utah's Senator, Mike Lee, reflects the values of the
majority of the constituents in this conservative state.
Mike Lee will be just like any other politician. The national debt will never be
paid off because people do not realize the money system is privatized, the
Federal reserve has control and everybody on this comment board is pro privatize
everything.I fear the non elected Federal reserve who answers to no
one, has seceret operations, and has never been audited, not the government who
is elected by the people.
Dear Realcourage: OMG!!!!!! I don't think you get it.
Too many people don't get it. They think rejecting the tea party is
wanting politics as usual, or being in favor of liberal ideology.
But the problem with the tea party isn't as much the message as it is our
willingness to cling to it, without stepping back a few steps to look at what's
happening. We're watching REACTIONARY mob mentality. It removes rationality
and replaces it with emotion. And many of the leaders who are being held up,
even right here in Utah, are simply manipulating the masses to get themselves in
office. They're not necessarily honest, competent, or better in any other way
than the people being kicked out.
I hope that people realize that Mike Lee will be elected and will be a good
representative of Utah values.What's really needed is for people to
support Morgan Philpot and vote out Jim Matheson. That's the only way that we,
here in Utah, can stop Nancy Pelosi. It's an imperative if we're going to save
I think a good part of the one-third polling for Mr. Granato is derived from
those who opposed Mr. Lee pre/post-convention - the RINO constituency. Many of
those, however, will vote the party line when they enter the voting booth - the
alternative is supporting the Reid/Pelosi policies that are being resoundingly
rejected. Mike Lee will be elected; and he must be elected with a mandate, which
can be achieved with a high voter turn-out. Encourage your family, friends and
neighbors to vote. Take advantage of the early voting opportunity that is
available throughout Utah.
Considering that Utah is sometimes perceived as one of the most conservative
states in the Country, for a Democrat to receive almost a third of the vote of a
state-wide race is pretty impressive and actually sends a big message that Utah
really isn't as monopolistic as people believe. It's also likely that parts of
Utah are much more pluralistic than the Nation realizes.
We just keep getting that same negative "extreme" spin from the Dems don't we.
Doesn't matter what the question is, it's always that same response. Guess they
can't really stand on their issues--which are the true extreme (forced
healthcare, bank bailouts, auto industry takeovers, trillions in debt ....)Mike Lee's message of limited, Constitutional Government and cutting
spending is resonating with people and I'm glad to see him in the lead. (I don't
see that his numbers have gone down, as they are within the margin of error. I
see him holding a steady lead!) Not only do I like Mike Lee's
message, but I like his Constitutional experience in DC, which includes clerking
for the Supreme Court and later arguing before the Supreme Court. Having met
Mike Lee many times, I find him to be a very bright, down to earth guy with a
great sense of humor.Of all three candidates in this race, Mike Lee
is the one who understands the proper role of government, and has the experience
and personality to get things done in Washington, D.C. He will make a fantastic
Why didn't the poll ask about Scott Bradley? One of the factors destroying our
liberty is the assumption by news reporters, career politicians, and pollsters
is that legitimate candidates only come from the two, almost indistinguishable,
major parties. Only third party candidates give us a real choice.
The Devil himself could run in Utah as a Republican and win easily. Utah is
like DC. Once the GOP has selected its candidate in a state-wide race, it is
over. This is called one party control.
Why can't the Utah dems get it through their heads that Mike's "Tea Party
rhetoric" is what America wants at this time. Tea Party people stand for the
constitution and getting things back on track NOT more of the same junk that is
going on with the Dems controlling the whole of Washington and driving the
nation (and our great-great grand childrens) hope of prosperity into the ground.
Sam is trying to show that he, perhaps, is more moderate about his party than
most of those in Washington but the nation, obviously, is not buying that right
now. Face it, Sam, Dems, Utahs who are sour grapes that it look like you are
going to lose again, we want a real "change" not the one that you, as well as
Washington want us to think is change. We have had it and want our America back!
