Feedback from June 4 and Beyond



Private Eye column "My Tipping Point"
by John Saltas

I try to vote for the person—not the party.

I did end up switching [registering as a Republican for the primary] and will be voting for Huntsman. ... [When Huntsman was governor] we saw a huge change in the laws that governed our local liquor industry come out of that.

I do hope that I'll be able to quickly switch back, though.

This Republican friend admires your principles—something that is sorely lacking in today's political climate.

Thank you, John Saltas! Thanks for your context, reasoning and words. They've helped me through this tangle of thorny vines as the primary election nears.

We [registered Republican]. To have any influence in Utah politics, it is necessary.

I am nauseated by this concept, but I just registered as a Republican. I can't wait to dump that designation. I feel dirty already, my soul feels dirty.

Every one of the GOP gubernatorial candidates is pro-Trump. Every damned one. I'm right with you, John. I can't do it. I'm a lifelong Carbon County Democrat who can't join with people who put party above principle, even temporarily.

Remember when Utah voted for legit Democrats like Frank Moss and Scott Matheson? Land preservation was a value?

Been a registered independent all my life.
Two weeks ago, I registered as a Republican to help keep Hughes out of office.
Soon as I vote in the primary, I will switch back and shower at the car wash to get the stench off.
