Hate Crimes? Where is the outrage???

I am totally opposed to hate crime legislation; but since we already have this stuff; where is the outrage?

LDS Church windows are being bashed in; copies of the Book of Mormon are being burned; and the Temples are being protested. Is there no outrage because it is the LDS church?

What if a mosque was being attacked? The way i see it; the homosexuals can demonstrate hate at anytime; but heaven forbid if hate is demonstrated towards them.

Hill's E-mail

On orders from the Commander-in-Chief of Operation Chaos I signed a pledge of support for Mrs. Bill Clinton to stay in the race. I got the following e-mail this morning:

I wanted you to be one of the first to know: on Saturday, I will hold an event in Washington D.C. to thank everyone who has supported my campaign. Over the course of the last 16 months, I have been privileged and touched to witness the incredible dedication and sacrifice of so many people working for our campaign. Every minute you put into helping us win, every dollar you gave to keep up the fight meant more to me than I can ever possibly tell you.
On Saturday, I will extend my congratulations to Senator Obama and my support for his candidacy. This has been a long and hard-fought campaign, but as I have always said, my differences with Senator Obama are small compared to the differences we have with Senator McCain and the Republicans. I have said throughout the campaign that I would strongly support Senator Obama if he were the Democratic Party's nominee, and I intend to deliver on that promise.
When I decided to run for president, I knew exactly why I was getting into this race: to work hard every day for the millions of Americans who need a voice in the White House. I made you -- and everyone who supported me -- a promise: to stand up for our shared values and to never back down. I'm going to keep that promise today, tomorrow, and for the rest of my life. I will be speaking on Saturday about how together we can rally the party behind Senator Obama. The stakes are too high and the task before us too important to do otherwise.
I know as I continue my lifelong work for a stronger America and a better world, I will turn to you for the support, the strength, and the commitment that you have shown me in the past 16 months. And I will always keep faith with the issues and causes that are important to you. In the past few days, you have shown that support once again with hundreds of thousands of messages to the campaign, and again, I am touched by your thoughtfulness and kindness.
I can never possibly express my gratitude, so let me say simply, thank you.
Sincerely, Hillary Rodham Clinton

Bob Barr - 7%

If Bob Barr runs on the same positions he held as a member of Congress, this man has my vote. (Unless McCain picks a great VP like Rice or Romney - picks Huckabee? I donate to Barr)

Numbers Boost Exploratory Committee Action

Atlanta, GA - In a survey commissioned last week by the Bob Barr 2008 Presidential Exploratory Committee, seven percent of likely voters responded that they would vote for the former Georgia congressman for president if he were on the ballot in November. Shortly after Ross Perot announced he was re-entering the presidential race in October 1992, he polled at seven percent.
Barr is considering whether to seek the nomination of the Libertarian Party for president. According to the latest poll, Barr enjoys 36 percent name recognition. When questions were asked reminding voters about Barr's role in the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton, and about the reasons why Barr left the Republican Party to join the Libertarian Party, Barr's seven percent rose to nine percent against Sens. Barack Obama and John McCain. He polled at eleven percent against Hillary Clinton and John McCain.
Russell Verney, Ross Perot's 1996 campaign manager and a volunteer with the Barr Exploratory Committee commented, "Bob Barr's name recognition and voter support are tremendous considering he has never run as a national candidate and has yet to spend any money on advertising. In the event Bob Barr officially enters the race, he will already be half way to qualifying for the fall Presidential debates.”
The telephone survey of 1,000 ‘Likely Voters’ was conducted by Pulse Opinion Research on April 3, 2008. Pulse Opinion Research, LLC is an independent public opinion research firm using automated polling methodology and procedures licensed from Rasmussen Reports, LLC. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points.
The Libertarian Party, America’s oldest and largest third party, formed in 1971, is on track to achieve ballot access in at least 48 states. Its nominee will be chosen at the Libertarian National Convention which will be held in Denver, CO May 22 through 26.

Meet Rep. Keith Grover - LD 61

1. Please introduce yourself.
My name is Representative Keith Grover.

2. Why are you running?
I am seeking re-election to office to continue representing the conservative values of District 61. In my extensive communication with delegates (over 4,000 emails, 600 letters, many phone calls and personal visits) I have learned that my constituents are very informed and concerned about moderation creeping into the House of Representatives. I am a principled based voter on the Hill and act on data and from a conservative framework rather than emotion. People appreciate a thinker rather than a reactor.

3. For the incumbent: What are your proudest accomplishments while serving on Utah’s Capitol Hill?
My proudest accomplishment is the implementation of HB 176 - Sex Offender Amendments which adds to the crimes requiring lifetime registration of a sex offender "attempting" or “conspiring to commit" an offense currently subject to lifetime registration. I am also very proud of my co-sponsorship of HB 256 - Criminal Penalties Amendments Including Jessica’s Law. C. Wimmer, Co-sponsor K.Grover. This bill, along with other provisions, increases the minimum term of imprisonment for rape of a child, object rape of a child, or sodomy on a child, to 25 years and which may be for life. It ensures the worst offenders are locked up for a long time. More importantly, it spares child victims the added trauma of facing an alleged sexual perpetrator in court.

4. Would you favor spending more on education and transportation or a tax cut?
I favor more spending on data driven, school responsive, education spending only. Forward thinking innovative schools and districts should be rewarded. I am not supportive of increased funding for any program that is not supported by data indicating a meaningful contribution to learning.
I support transportation funding - specifically in Utah County and I actively sought votes on the floor to ensure the reconstruction of I-15 in our area.
I support and have supported all tax cuts presented - this includes the 88 million two years ago and the 50 million this year.

5. Would you favor a complete audit of every school district’s spending and making that available to the public?
I would sponsor the bill, if needed, to make that a reality. It is the public's money.

6. Who do you admire most in the political world (dead or alive) and why?
I admire former Utah County Commissioner Jerry Grover - my brother. He stayed true to conservative principles and avoided the political hoopla as he served Utah County for 12 years.

7. How can a delegate, or potential constituent contact you?

Meet Chance Williams

Here is the first survey response I have gotten. I have others and will post them soon.

1. Please introduce yourself.
Chance Williams I'm a self-employed software engineer. I'm a lifelong Republican and I am a true compassionate conservative. I genuinely care about people. I've served as: Planning Commission Member, Chairman of Public Safety, and City Council Member, all in Woodland Hills. I was elected to the City Council position as a "write-in" candidate.

2. Why are you running?
I kept reading about all the conflicts of interest the incumbent (Rep Mike Morley) has on his legislation. Also, tired of the "head fakes" on illegal immigration and crime fighting. I want to see real progress.

3. For the challenger: What legislative achievements (can't think of a better word) of your opponents do you most disagree with?
Google on and the web will tell you more than I ever could :
mike morley charter

mike morley roof leaks

morley SEC lawsuit

mike morley conflict

mike morley workers

4. Would you favor spending more on education and transportation or a tax cut?
Education needs to move in the direction of technology, so they allow students to progress as fast as they can. This allows teachers to work with the students that need extra help. We can do that without raising taxes. Transportation: Project by project reviews. Need a complete review of Public transportation.
Some buses are packed beyond reason, most are left empty.

5. Would you favor a complete audit of every school district's spending and making that availible to the public?
Audit as needed. Must be public.

6. Who do you admire most in the political world (dead or alive) and why?
Politically: Newt Gingrich. Solid intelligent conservative who knew how to balance a budget.

7. How can a delegate, or potential constituent contact you? has my email address and phone number: 801-423-2725

Best wishes,
Chance Williams

Obama: Children are punishment

Speaking about sex education at an event in Pennsylvania Saturday, Obama said, according to the Christian Broadcasting Network, that he will educate his young daughters but “if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at the age of 16.” (emphasis added)
And this is the man you want to be President??

Finally the mtn. will be on satellite

By Jay Posner
1:49 p.m. February 21, 2008
At long last, The Mtn. has a deal with DirecTV.
No, really.
Advertisement The network devoted to the Mountain West Conference has not been available on any satellite service since its inception in September 2006. But Jeff Schemmel, San Diego State director of athletics, said today DirecTV will offer The Mtn. beginning Aug. 1.
An official announcement is expected later today or tomorrow.
“It's invigorating and exciting for all of us,” Schemmel said. “ ... (There is) a realization of how much a satellite deal will mean to recruiting and the ability of people across the country to see us play.”
The Mtn. currently is available in just 1.2 million homes nationwide, including Cox Digital Cable subscribers in San Diego County who pay for the sports and information package. It is not known how many additional homes will receive the network after the deal with DirecTV takes effect.
Time Warner Cable, the other major cable operator in San Diego County, does not have a deal with The Mtn.

Utah County Democratic Party off their rocker:

What about the rule of law?

I was disgusted by an editorial written by Utah County Democratic leaders Richard Davis and Larry Brown in the Des-News. (,5143,695253249,00.html)

Do the Utah County Democrats not respect that we have laws in this country and that everyone is expected to abide by these laws? No one is above the law. In Richard Davis and Larry Brown’s world, people who break our immigration laws should be shown compassion by ignoring the offense. Please explain why these law-breakers are on a higher level than everyone else. Is this what the Democratic Party as a whole believes in?

Heaven help us if they ever take control here in Utah.

They mention that the church teaches compassion. No arguments here. I have seen numerous people spend money beyond their means and get help from the church so they don’t lose their house. I don’t have a problem with that, so long as it is not every month. I contribute generously (as generously as I can) to the fast offering and Perpetual Education Fund. I served a mission in Latin America, and send money there every year.

But please don’t say that the church expects us to ignore this law breaking. Article of Faith #12 states that “We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, in obeying, honoring, and sustaining the law.” Growing up, this meant to me that I had to honor President William Jefferson Clinton, and probably will have to honor President-elect B. Hussein Obama.

As a member of the LDS church, I believe that we should all obey the laws of the land. WHETHER WE AGREE OR NOT. Just because I don’t agree with Roe v. Wade; doesn’t mean that I would do any harm to anyone else. (Speaking of which; why are the Democrats in Utah so bent out of shape on making animal torture a felony; but turn their backs to the killing of innocent children?)

I also find it ironic that the battle cry for the few Democrats in Utah County is that we need to replace the Republicans because they didn’t do the will of the people on the voucher issue. Let me remind you what a Dan Jones poll found in regards to tuition breaks for illegals: “A recent Deseret Morning News/KSL-TV poll conducted by Dan Jones and Associates found that 63 percent of Utahns polled opposed allowing undocumented students to pay a lower rate; 33 percent supported the tuition rate (,5143,695247784,00.html).”

So Professor Davis and Mr. Brown: do the legislators have to do the will of the people at all times, or only when it is politically expedient for your minority party?

Mitt. Not McCain

I will be voting for Gov. Romney today. I got the following e-mail today:

Today, voters in 21 states across the nation are heading to the polls to cast their vote for the Republican presidential nomination.

As they make their final decision, they should consider the vastly different visions of the two candidates who remain in this race -- Governor Mitt Romney and Senator John McCain.

In 2008, the Republican Party needs a nominee who can debate Senator Hillary Clinton on the critical issues confronting our nation today. We need a nominee who will ensure that liberal initiatives fail and conservative principles prevail. Take a look at this video, called "Very Close," which highlights how Senator McCain and Senator Clinton actually agree on more issues than not.

Then, please consider making a contribution today to ensure the two-man race becomes a one-man race with Governor Romney winning the gold. We need "a full-spectrum conservative" like Governor Romney who can provide a clear conservative contrast with Senator Clinton. The challenges we face in our nation are too important!

Thank you, and on to victory…

Spencer J. Zwick
National Finance Director & Sr. Advisor
P.S. With a contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50, or even $25 or whatever you can afford today , we can ensure voters see the clear contrast between Governor Romney's vision of bringing conservative change to Washington and Senator McCain's approach that resembles that of Senator Clinton. Thank you.
