Might And Right

Those in the pay of Senator Orrin Hatch point to the Senator's riches as validation of the Senator's continued career. Senator Hatch is obviously a good Senator because he has all the money and power. Might makes right. Sound reasonable? Is that truly compatible with "Utah's values"? What about Utah's history? Did might make right every time Joseph Smith was arrested and imprisoned on ridiculous charges? Did might make right when he was assasinated? Did might make right when Mormons were mobbed and driven through multiple states? Senator Orrin Hatch may survive November, but his generation of politics is on its last leg.

Careful. Using people's religious beliefs to lecture them on their purported downfalls only works in church. And even then it doesn't work that well.

While many (especially in the blogosphere) may wish it otherwise, unless something cataclysmic happens PermaHatch will prevail in November. And, much to my chagrin, probably in November 2012 if he wishes it, (repeat every six years until death). He still has a long way to go to outdo Strom Thurmond's record.

No, buddy. Using local state HISTORICAL FACTS to make a point of right from wrong, is NOT lecturing people on thier "purported downfalls," you dumb-ass. And facts DO work. That's a PROVEN FACT.
Ethan, you are SO right on this one. Amen, for standing up for the things you believe in, and voicing your utter disgust with;"Those in the pay of Senator Orrin Hatch point to the Senator's riches as validation of the Senator's continued career."

One of the biggest complaints I hear is that people feel their voice is not heard, their problems ignored. They ask why should they be involved in the political process, when, after all the promises politicians make, in the end moneyed special interests win out. Traditional campaigns are metered by how much money they can collect, not by the ideas they bring.

My candidacy is all about changing this situation. I want to represent the people. I want to give the people back their voice. I want to restore democracy. I want to be part of the solution and feel strongly that unless I am doing something to change the current system, I would be no different than any other candidate. I want you to be part of this campaign and part of government. Together we can make a difference. -Pete Ashdown

Might and Right Question...which facixts should we fear more the ones overseas ar the ones in control of our government? Rummy and Tricky Dick are some truely scary dudes when it comes to crushing any one who questions their authority. Rumsfield deserves to be kicked in the nuts for his statements about those, who by the rights granted by the Bill of Rights, have questioned the wisdom of this war. Where in the HELL are the WMD's? How do you know when government officials are lying? Their lips are moving.

Anyone with an ounce of brains or reads know that everyone in the intelligence community around the world knew their were WMD's. But you give a guy six-months notice that you are coming after him what do you think he's going to do? Any good fence will move the merchandise. Bush "lied", Blair "lied", Kofi Anan "lied" the US Security Council "lied". Even the gutlesss French "lied" but only because they were afraid we'd all find out about their scandalous pandering.
