Nice. Now tell us the truth. I'm sure you are holding back some facts. Trump 2020.

News, Jan. 24, "Banking on Coal"
Funny that no major wind or solar farms have been installed in the last 10 years in Utah. It's great saying coal costs more but why haven't these alternative energy sources popped up in Utah?
I wouldn't bank on coal. It's time to utilize the natural resources available in Utah. Hydro and wind. They're both renewable and won't run out like coal will.
Little lesson from a finance guy. The only way to switch to clean energy is to provide a better cost/benefit. [Rocky Mountain Power] is a public company under Pacificorp. It's the fiduciary responsibility of the board of Pacificorp directors to spend money that generates the biggest returns to shareholders. Investing for "a better environment" isn't measurable in dollars, so the operational expense is put where it generates the most revenue.

Online News Post, Jan. 31, "It's the Utah Way, Baby!"
[Gov. Gary Herbert] is one reason young people are drawn the other way. Who needs his brand of politics?!
Each time he says "socialism" it seems you could replace it with "not being Republican."
Everyone hates socialism until there is snow on the roads. Then it's like where the hell is that plow?
Those 481 snow plow drivers do it for fun, Andy. There's no publicly funded program that pays them to clear our roads. No correlation here.
Benjamin Daniel Hoerst
Don't forget public schools, public highways, and much more. They want democratic socialist services without calling them that.
Wow, he's got nerve saying that he's fighting for the people's voices to be heard after what he helped do with Prop 2.
And just how many years has Herbert been living off taxpayer welfare?
Fred A. Schmauch
Socialism is actually good, if you had a college education you might know that, Gary.
Maybe he meant he was disturbed that his generation and fellow politicians have exploited every resource for personal and corporate gain, leaving little more than crisis for the next generation and creating a world where socialism might appear to be a better way.
I like how it's always excluded middle with these guys. Could it be that younger generations appreciate some aspects of socialism (investment in social programs and infrastructure) without accepting it, wholesale? Nah! Nuance sucks, amiright?
A moderate political position seems socialist to this guy.
Says the man who has fed from the public trough all his life.
This generation has learned that our version of capitalism no longer works for the majority of U.S. citizens. It only works when unions are strong and able to force corporate capitalists to give the workers their share of the profits the workers created.
Isn't Utah's liquor system socialism at its finest?
Well, the church literally commands socialism, so I can understand why there may be some confusion on the issue.
Online News Post, Feb. 4, "Taking a Gamble"
This is what the government does. Bullshit with stupid issues to look like they are doing something, meanwhile important issues get sidetracked and the planet is in the condition it is in.
This is what our morons in the Legislature think is priority. They all need to go.

Pro-birth. He doesn't care for kids after they are born.
Oh hell no. If you have a penis, you do not get a say in this discussion. Once science can force a man to carry a pregnancy to term, we can talk.
Jamie Lee Dillier
Not really. Are you for single payer? Affordable housing? Affordable education? Because most "pro-life" people I've met don't want to fund these things because of "big government spending."
Science has advanced. Methyl mercury from coal causes spontaneous abortion and birth defects. Clean up our air if you're a pro-life guy.

Republicans believe in science?
