    How Politicians really express gratitude during Thanksgiving week. "TRUTH". The buzz on the conservative radio talk show's today was that Obama did not use the G-word on TV when President Obama Pardons Turkey, now what?. They go onto say, "socialism" and God don't mix and that's why he did that. Obama Turkey Pardon: "It Feels Pretty Good to Stop at Least One Shellacking this November." Obama jokingly called the turkey pardon "one of the most important duties that I carry out as president." "It's kind of like a turkey version of 'Dancing With the Stars,' except the stakes for the contestants was much higher," said the president. "Only one pair would survive and win the big prize: life." No, this isn't a metaphor for the GOP candidates. Obama saved turkeys Peace and Liberty from a certain death at the annual White House Thanksgiving pardon without Congress's approval, of course. To tell the truth here, (because conservatives lie a lot), "GOD" and "JESUS CHRIST" are true socialist's, they both give and gave, conservatives hoard only, they are the I, me and my for the rich generation. The Party of Nixon and Eisenhower has vanished in todays world.

    My views.

    OK, I really liked the one about Rep. Clark being out of her hair.

    Now back on topic:

    The caucus system is the best way to make sure grass roots movements can work over large amounts of money. It is the only way someone with $100,000 can go against someone with $2,000,000 in election funds.

    There were about 60,000 republicans in Utah that went to the neighborhood caucus elections in 2010 to elect the 3500 delegates. Add to those numbers to democrats and the primary elections and certainly the municipal elections didn't do any better in voter representation.

    Most people that want the caucus system changed, there are exceptions, are frustrated that they don't have as much power as people that show up to the neighborhood election caucus meetings. It doesn't take money, you just have to show up.

    What we need are more people getting involved earlier, not shutting down the system that protects us from power hungry people wanting to take over.
