    "I think Rocky is a hero ..."

    I am reminded of Ross (Rocky) Anderson every time I see the Main Street Plaza or the Sky Bridge over Main Street in downtown Salt Lake City. He fought both projects tooth and nail, and fortunately for us he lost both fights.

    I'd never feel comfortable with a former attorney for the ACLU elected President of our country.

    Mr. Ross (Rocky) Anderson, former attorney for the ACLU says ""I had no idea how absolutely undemocratic this country is when it comes to forming political parties ...". He probably has no idea how absolutely few votes he will harvest. Mr. Anderson almost makes me want to appreciate our current president.

    I am thrilled about Rocky's frugality. Republicans and Democrats each get 18.2 million dollars of taxpayer's money to stage their conventions. In addition, Congress sets aside an addition $50 million dollars for security at each convention. (We're up to $136 MILLION taxpayer dollar for what?)
    Is this any indication of why we have a huge budget deficit? It doesn't matter if voters elect a Republican or a Democrat, the corporate funded duo spends, spends, SPENDS.
    I think Rocky is a hero for trying to run a campaign as inexpensively as possible. We should be voting for someone who can CONTROL spending and we should positively take away the funding for these party conventions or convention parties.

    The longer Rocky runs, the better. As long as it is away from Utah. He did quite enough moonbattery here already.

    Rocky can remain in the obscurity he deserves.
