    There must be opposition in all things ... except Utah politics.

    'Democrats say the Republican-controlled Legislature unfairly and behind closed doors drew new congressional districts to the GOPs advantage. They are considering a lawsuit but want to review the documents before going to court. Dabakis estimated the request could yield 10,000 pages.' - article

    This is what happens when you continue to elect, one party.

    They do whatever they want. Without answering to the people.

    **'Utah House Majority Leader Kevin Garn resigns' - By Richard Piatt, Mark Hamilton - AP - Published by KSL - 05/13/10

    'SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah's House majority leader resigned from the Legislature Saturday, two days after acknowledging he paid a woman $150,000 to keep quiet about a nude hot-tubbing incident that took place a quarter century ago when she was a teenager. (sic)
    House Speaker David Clark accepted Garn's resignation Saturday afternoon and offered an explanation about why the House applauded Garn's confession Thursday night.'

    As such...

    Utah deserves Newt Gingrich.

    Taxing e-commerce is foolish. The first state to do it is going to be the big loser as e-businesses relocate and take thousands of jobs from the economy. We've got O.co, one of the largest online resellers, right down town. I'm sure Idaho would love for them to move just a few hours to the north.

    Who put the Democrat party in-charge of the redistricting? The redistricting was supposed to be non partisan, unbiased, and open meeting procedure, so why did it turn in to a secret and partisan procedure?

    I think the some people need to answer to the public and open government law validation, and revoke the compromised mapping.

    Political parties and not authorized government agency's therefore they should pay for any services like and citizens has to pay. And why would a party want all emails and information on pending legislation? That's a criminal attack on privacy and the due process of public trust. Insider information is criminal breach request and should not be allowed.
