RINOs in a One-Party State

RINOs in a One-Party State

As Utah has basically become a one-party state (Republican), there are more people running for office as Republicans who were once Democrats. The state’s caucus/convention system has been pretty good at weeding out many of these pretend Republicans, but in 2014 a law was passed that gutted the caucus/convention system. (Read more about that here.)

Today, under this new law, Bernie Sanders (or any other non-Republican) could move to Utah, file to be a Republican and the same day he could file to run for office as a Republican. He (they) could have their name put on the Republican primary ballot, even though they have never been Republican before and they do not support the platform—and there is nothing the party can do about it. The average voter doesn’t know about this new law. The average voter doesn’t know that these candidates aren’t really even Republican—except by virtue of checking a little box.

Bernie (and other pretend Republican candidates) can then get the liberals to affiliate with the Republican Party so they can vote for him (them) in the Republican Primary. They can spend a lot of money on their campaign advertising. They can create cute radio, TV, newspaper, and billboard ads that are vague and catchy so even the regular Republicans will vote for them. Elections can literally be won on 30 second soundbites.

Once these pretend Republican candidates can trick enough of the average Republicans to vote for them and get enough of the liberals to plug their noses and register as Republican to vote for them—they can win elections as Republicans under this new law. IF YOU ARE A REAL UTAH REPUBLICAN AND THIS BOTHERS YOU—CONTACT YOUR STATE SENATORS, STATE REPRESENTATIVES, AND GOVERNOR AND LET THEM KNOW!

This law that has invited more RINOs into the party has made The Great Divide in the GOP even worse than it already was.  It has also created more Factions of the Party.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke. I think our Federal Government has grown out of control and I cannot keep my head buried in the sand and do nothing. This is why I do what I can to educate myself and share what I learn with others. This is why I seek out good candidates and do what I can to help them get elected.

“But how is this legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime.” - Claude Frédéric Bastiat. I agree with Bastiat that if it is not legal for me to steal something from one neighbor and give it to another neighbor, then it is not legal for any public servant (elected to represent me) to steal from one and give it to another. Yet this legal plunder is quite common today.

“Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.” - Claude Frédéric Bastiat. Government was created to protect our life, liberty, and property. Yet, what I see the Federal Government doing is pretending to protect “us” from all kinds of things, but by doing so they are destroying our life and liberty, and taking our property.

“If government makes everything illegal, then everyone is a criminal.” - Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin. There are so many laws, rules, regulations, ordinances, acts, statutes, and whatever else you want to call them, that it is impossible to know them all. How many “criminals” do you know? Are you a “criminal”?
