Topics ranged from the good people of Saratoga Springs and Eagle Mountain, the Republican Majority in the state legislature, gun rights, separation of church and state, education funding, potential government shutdown, and funding of Planned Parenthood.…Continue

I did a follow up survey to the July voter survey to see if there has been movement in voter sentiment. The biggest change has been for Dr. Ben Carson. His support has nearly doubled from 14% to 26% while everyone else has dropped except for Carly Fiorina who has increased from 0% to 3%. When I did the original survey, I had left Dr. Carson out, so I did that again to be consistent.

I recently read an article that explained that Politicians lie because Voters punish them when they tell the Truth: (http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/03/20/politicians-lie-because-voters-punish-them-for-telling-the-truth/)
Here is a quote:
We’re constantly being told that voters have lost trust in politicians because they…

I am watching the national trend of larger support for Political Outsiders.
In current polls (http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/latest_polls/) when you add up support for Donald Trump (29%), Ben Carson (25%), and Carly Fiorina (4%) that is 58% of support for presidential candidates that have never held political office. Their wealth of experience has been in Real Estate Development,…Continue

I am reaching out to all Utah Representatives today because I strongly believe that Governor Herbert's measure to bar Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funding disbursed through Utah state agencies is unethical, and is an attempt to subvert women’s 14th Amendment rights.
These services are extremely important, especially in poverty stricken areas where most people can't afford to go to a hospital or regular doctor. They also drastically reduce the need…

I see you voted to stab all Utah Tax Payers in the back and twist the knife.
You and the other 61 liars should be so ashamed of yourselves , you were elected to represent the people not you pocket book.
Enjoy you last term in office and all the grease in the palm of you hand.
The prison did not need to move and there has not been one legitimate reason to move it.
Did you not hear the cries of “We The People”?

I tweeted last winter that if you want to get more people involved in political issues, just offer to put a prison in their community. Let me report that the Prison Relocation process has been very successful in getting more people involved in the political process. In fact, this has been the most successful voter outreach program I have ever experienced.
Even though I was one of the 4 in the House and Senate that voted against moving the prison, I was out voted and have come…Continue

I applaud concept of a hybrid model that brings key components of different systems. I have seen these hybrid systems work well in some applications. I appreciate the work that has been put into it. I agree that we need to fix this ourselves and not abdicate this decision to an unelected judge. We need to make this decision as elected representatives of the people.
However, more confusing and less responsive than the current model
I describe this concept as Clunky and not just…Continue

You have probably seen in the news that Governor Gary Herbert has called a special session next Wednesday, August 19th, to have the full legislature vote on the recommendation by the Prison Relocation Committee (PRC). On August 11th, the PRC unanimously voted to recommend the I-80/7200 West site which is west of the Salt Lake City Airport as the site for the new Utah State Prison. Based on projections by the state's analysts this site would save $300…Continue
