  • I believe that we as Utah’s need to join together and take legal action against the Utah legislature to limit their ability to change anything and everything that the people vote for. They have to much power. They use that power to control what happens in Utah and what the mainstream religion has to say about everything happening here. The moto that we know best cause we have inspired direction from those whom we bow to is NOT right.

    If you, as most all of Utah residents think that the government in Utah is looking out for your best interests, you better look at who they are really looking out for and that is the church. If you think that the church doesn’t control everything in Utah then I have some property in the middle of no where that I will sale to you at a very good price.
    People of the church, main religion here, PLEASE wake up and quit being led around like a bunch of sheep. The church does not have your best interest at heart they are only concerned about itself and how the decisions made will effect their control of everything. If you don’t or can’t believe what really is happening then you need to take a good look at history of the state.
    The church has it’s fingers in just about every business that is operated in Utah. Your tithing has made the church a billion dollar business!!! Corporation of the church!!!!!
    Utah is not a political state it is a DICTATORSHIP run by the church.

    The people voiced what they want and now the government is going to change what the people wanted?????? how is that right and even moral to override what the people voted for??????????
    The state of Utah is telling us that we can’t take care of our self’s, we are not as smart as they are so they need to step in and protect us from our self’s?????? How does that compare to Communism, in fact is that not exactly what is happening here in Utah?????????
    If you think that this is the last thing that they will protect us from you are sadly mistaken. When their arrogance gets worse then they will tells us that they are going to protect us by raising the tax on gas, food or anything that they deem necessary to fix, cause we are not smart enough to make decisions for our self’s.
    There is no separation of church and state when it comes to Utah. The corruption is out of control!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Some will say o he is just a unhappy Mormon and he has gotten hurt and so he is taking it out on the church!!! Well I say to those people you are the ones who need to take a close look at what is happening and open yours eyes to how you are being controlled and to the truth, if you can find it. I hope and pray that you will see the truth.
    One more example of how you are controlled. The gas price in Utah is always more than the national average why??? None of the oil that is refined in Utah comes from out of the country, it comes from right here in Utah and the surrounding states. Um ???
    Drive around Utah county and look at the gas prices, in Provo, Orem, the price for reg. gas is $2.85, in Pleasant Grove and other northern cities the price is $2.68??? Is it because most of the students live in the Provo, Orem area???? It is the same gas so why is the price so different in the same chain of stations???????
