The Utah Republican Congressional Primary was held and it seems as though one of the most preposterously conservative congressmen Chris Cannon has been unseated by a kid named Jason Chaffetz who campaigned on a platform that said a man who was destructively too conservative was, indeed, not conservative enough.
I know, I know. This is real through the looking glass kind of stuff, but it seems as though sanity, reason, sound policy and family values has a new enemy and his name is Jason Chaffetz.
I implore the family values voters of Utah's 3rd congressional district to make sure a man that will surely be destructive (and ineffective) in the congress in our name to make sure that we vote for a real family values candidate. The real family values candidate is one that will make sure that our children have universal healthcare, our senior citizens are able to afford both the cost of living and medical attention, our unemployed can find work in federal works programs and the utility companies are forced out of lobbying and back into regulation that will get our economy on track.
We need a congressman who is going to ensure that our economy and dollar is stronger than it was when George Bush (finally) leaves office, one who understands that the Bush tax-cuts are preposterous and understands that you have to levy taxes for what you plan on paying for.
We need a congressman who understands that the relationship between families and the government needs to be one of symbiosis, one that enriches the lives of our people and makes their lives easier and happier.
That candidate is NOT Jason Chaffetz.
Chaffetz is wrong on ALL the issues important to families. Right on his website he talks about how we won't vote to expand SCHIP, offer hard working immigrants to our country a path to citzenship, gut federal programs, continue our folly in the Middle East, allow guns in our national parks and force the Deparment of Education out of business and foist the onus of education solely on state and local governments.
Clearly, this is madness.
There you go.
A Vote for Jason Chaffetz is a vote to extend our long national nightmare of the last 8 years and we need to make sure we do everything we can to make sure a man like this stays out of office.
