    I think that Freedom Works should go home and let Utah Voters and Utah Candidates take care of Utah Politics.

    I admire Senator Hatch for not giving in to the tactics of the Tea Party. The reason why he was able to do that was because the citizens of the state of Utah decided to speak their own minds, not the Tea Party's mind. I applaud them and their courage. I also agree that the Tea Party is indeed "a bunch of radicals."

    I was a delegate there. I am definitely not a tea party person, considering myself a moderate conservative. I voted for Liljenquist because he was exciting, talented, young, and on target, though I don't agree with all his positions. I do think he is a practical conservative. In some ways he reminds me of Hatch 36 years ago. I think it's time for a change. (The wolf PACs on both sides were simply awful and disingenuous--FreedomWorks, FreedomPaths, and American Action Network, to name the main bad ones who sent me bad literature.)

    To the Independents, Libertarians, and Democrats, and other freedom loving persons. We need your help to unseat one of the main NWO operatives who gave you unprecedented losses, of your rights, He claims to be an advocate of freedoms while working against them. He highly supported the Patriot Act, the NDAA,(National Defense Authorization Act, which calls for warrantless arrests, and detentions without constiutional rights of warrants from a court and trial by your peers). He supports torture as a means to and end regardless of constitutional provisions against this behavior. He supported the nominations of many anti freedom people in high positions, that require consent of the Senate, folks like Ginsburg, Kagan, Sotomeyer for supreme court, The criminal actions of guns to Mexican gangs would not have had Erick Holder to preside over it had Hatch taken the advice of the 2nd Amendment community to NOT support him! The debt he decries is debt he authorized, like the too big to fail and bankster bailouts! Voted for the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac bailouts. Hatch cosponsored the Individual Mandate for health care. On and on help get him out Register Republican at least long enough to dethrone him!!!
