    I will be voting for not for Mia Love, but for Jim. Why? The underhanded republican effort to re-draw the boundaries of the 4th district is enough for me to show up and try to stop what they want to do; win by scheming.

    Is this about me or is about Matheson? I'm not running for Congress. I didn't ignore the voices of the people of the most conservative state in the union. I didn't vote with Pelosi and friends AGAINST the people of Utah.

    I agree that not everyone thinks exactly the same in Utah. Some of you are more liberal than the rest of us, but we don't force you to accept our opinion; we vote and, believe it or not, in America, the majority gets to choose who represents them.

    Matheson has pretended for twelve years to be someone that he is not. He expected Utahns to continue to be too lazy to check his voting record. He expected liberals to hurl insults against the majority of Utahns. That may have worked in the 2nd District, but he's no longer in the 2nd District. He's running for an office in a district where he can't even vote for himself.

    @Mike Richards;

    Please note. Your views are NOT representative of the vies of all Utahns, you share views with some Utahns. Your views are not the only views that are relevant.

    If there is still anyone who can't make up his mind about what direction he wants America to go, just what will it take?

    Will he vote for someone who hides the fact that he's a Democrat?

    Will he vote for someone who voted against the mind and will of Utahns and opposed the other two Representatives and the two Senators on major legislation?

    Can anyone vote for an opportunist whose goal is to retain his seat in Congress by implying that he has made a difference for Utah? What difference has he made? He reduced Utah's representation to one vote in the House. When three representatives can't decided amongst themselves how to best represent the people of Utah, why would anyone vote for the "odd man" who consistently voted against the other two? Utah is not a divided state. We don't need or deserve a divided representation in Congress.

    It's time for Matheson to get a job outside of Washington until he understands just how ineffective he has been in Congress as one of Utah's Representatives.

    But what about freeing ourselves from the bondage of the Party Of No?

    Amen. Now that's more like it to have the Deseret News publish a meaningful Letter to the Editor....
