The Utah Republican Party doesn’t like fellow Republicans who voice their opinion against their candidates.
Did you know that the Utah Republican Party has a blog. It’s called Leadership that Deliverers and it is generally fairly informative and fun to read. I commend them in their efforts to reach out their party members and the public through blogging.
However, about a week ago, the party bloggers posted their support for Hatch and Bennett’s votes on the bail out bill. Immediately after reading the post, I commented that I disagreed with them.
Then I watched waiting for my comment to be published. It never was. At first, I thought that it was because of my dissenting opinion. But it doesn’t go that far. Because they currently have one comment that disagrees with them.
So, they aren’t that thin skinned. But they are sensitive about their politicians. Because the only reason that I can think why they wouldn’t publish the comment was that I specifically stated that I would not be voting for Bennett or Hatch their next election time.
I would provide the full comment, but I wasn’t smart enough to keep a copy of the comment somewhere. I just assumed that they were open-minded enough to let my post get through. I now know better.
It’s amazing how weak kneed the party is. Come on guys. We can’t a little decent in the party? It’s almost enough to make we want to leave. But I won’t because the Utah Republican Party is the closest major party to my opinion, and I can’t have influence without their strength.
Apparently, I CAN‘t choose to vote against a Republican candidate and express it on their blog.
