Utah: What’s Going on With Gay Rights and Which Candidate is the “Real” Conservative?

Comments Off on Utah: What’s Going on With Gay Rights and Which Candidate is the “Real” Conservative?

White background - long

If you listen to the news, you are aware that there’s an all-out assault on Decency, Family, Religious Liberty, Marriage and all things Local Control.  They are inseparably connected and those issues are also inseparably connected to the fiscal issues.  The personal choices people make are reflected in fiscal policy and especially the Entitlements.

This gay rights law is the same one that has sparked a chain reaction of persecution against Christian-owned businesses across the United States – fining them or forcing them to render services in ways that violate their First Amendment protections and religious liberty – or go out of business.

This is the same law that allowed a lesbian mayor in Houston to subpoena the sermons of five Houston pastors, violating their First Amendment religious liberty and voting rights.

This is the same law that is allowing men to enter women’s public restrooms, locker rooms and shower facilities.

These gay rights laws have been passed in over 20 communities in Utah citing an endorsement of the Salt Lake City ordinance saying, “It is fair and reasonable and does not do violation to the institution of marriage.”  We now see that is not the case.

LGBT activists in Utah are promising they will get this law passed in the next session.

You MUST see for yourself what this ordinance has done to Salt Lake City.  You will NOT believe your eyes.  And it is now coming to Utah County. Read More

Paul Rolly, I Accept the Honor

Comments Off on Paul Rolly, I Accept the Honor

Recently Salt Lake Tribune satirist from the Left, Paul Rolly, dubbed me the “Tea Party Goddess” in his regular column. Naturally, I was flattered and graciously accepted. It inspired a make-over. Let me know what you think.

The Paradox of School Choice, Charters, Vouchers and the Destruction of the Free Market

Comments Off on The Paradox of School Choice, Charters, Vouchers and the Destruction of the Free Market

I recently viewed an intelligent discussion from education analyst Jay Greene about Common Core.  It’s a message that must be communicated but with a few shortcomings. Here’s the video:

While Greene speaks to business leaders in a language they can understand, his analysis falls short of the mark in two ways: 1) That national standards should even be part of the discussion at all, and 2) that choice and charter schools are liberty-free market choices, even though his speech was to commemorate the father of “free choice” Milton Friedman. I’ll explain. Read More

Today’s Conservative=Yesterday’s Liberal: Support the Physician’s Declaration of Independence

1 Comment

On this Independence Day, we recognize a paradox: Today’s conservative is yesterday’s liberal. It’s a curious thing.

Many years ago, when I embarked on my study of political history and philosophy, I ran into the paradox of the terms “liberal” and “conservative,” noting that today’s definitions had been completely reversed. Read More

The Rove Wing v The Reagan Wing: A History Lesson

Comments Off on The Rove Wing v The Reagan Wing: A History Lesson

The Rove Wing is alive and well in Utah as the “Caucus System” is once again under fire.

Let’s be honest.  Some in the Republican Party are more liberal than others and would like to influence the outcome of the election process to allow more liberal representation.  Especially in Utah. Read More

Glenn Beck Tries to Define “Conservative”

Comments Off on Glenn Beck Tries to Define “Conservative”

Glenn Beck and I agree on many issues, but not this one. Today on his radio show he attempted to define Republicans in the following categories:

  • Constitutionalists = the purists
  • Conservatives = they say they are constitutionalists, but they depart when it comes to governing on the “social” issues
  • RINOS = progressive Republicans

Since this site is dedicated to defining “conservative” and conservative issues, I will not allow Glenn Beck to define who I am and who other conservatives are. So I’m setting the record straight: Read More

Another Defining Moment

Orrin HatchMy blog site is dedicated to defining conservative. Senator Orrin Hatch, via the Deseret News, has just given me another defining moment.

In the article “Utah GOP May End Up Being Dominated By Radicals,” Utah’s senior senator is setting the stage for moving our election process from a caucus-convention to an open primary, playing on the fears of voters that the current system is controlled from within by “radicals” and “extremists.” Read More
