If being a Patriot Conservative means honoring and following the Koch Brothers
money and the closed door ALEC organization that uses it's clout in ways
that most citizens don't approve of, then this is your guy.Not
mine. The GOP can't get out of the cookie cutter "land developer"
ALEC member mold.This state needs more political diversity. This
brand of "Conservatism" is getting dangerous all across America. Lately
the GOP can hardly be called patriotic.
@Brer Rabbit - Spanish Fork, UT: When did illegal aliens become an enemy of
Conservatives? During the great GWBush years conservatives was
hiring illegal like it was an exciting and new fashion trend. Kind of like those
skinny jeans, guys was a bragging about how many pairs you have. For whatever
reasons you guy now hide the fact that you ever had them, bragged about them or
was ever seen with them. Just whe, Did the fashion change?
IMVHO patriotic conservatives are very, very, very rare to find these days and
it is really a shame.
Check out what John Oliver has to say about ALEC. It goes beyond flag waving
No to any ALEC representatives.Secret meeting behind closed doors
with big donors isn't even close to what our country was founded on, but
sure seems to be a Utah GOP/Con. ideal.
If opposition to illegal immigration and amnesty for illegal aliens is important
to you the only candidates for the UT 3rd CD (democrat or republican) that I
trust are Chris Herrod and Maragret Dayton. Both have excellent voting records
on this subject in the Utah Legislature. However Chris Herrod was by far the
most outspoken member in the Utah House in opposition to illegal immigration and
Utah's amnesty legislation (HB116). In the legislature Herrod
was the most stalwart opponent to illegal immigration, even while most in the
republican party and all of the democrats supported The Utah Compact and Utah
amnesty HB116, which if given a waiver by the federal government would have
opened up all Utah jobs to illegal aliens. Utah is still waiting for the
Patriotic conservatives means a person who is consumed in hatered waving a
gadsden flag. A person who does not listen to other points of view or willing to
move forward in a productive manner.
" unlike the impostering likes of Chaffetz and his predecessor Chris Cannon
who are only ambitious and listen to special interests rather than the
constituency that they routinely ignore."Chris Herrod is a
developer and a long term ALEC member. And you think he'll act in the best
interests of his constituents vs. ALEC and the Koch brothers? Face it-Utah GOP
candidates/politicians are all cut from the same cloth. You'll need to
vote for a different party affiliation if you expect something different.
