Every State Counts, Every Voter Counts
If you were tired of a few voters in a handful of states determining the nominee, this is your year. If you are told only the big states count, don’t believe it. Every state counts, and every voter counts. In the West the remaining contests are
Wyoming March 8 (caucus)
Oregon May 20 (primary)
Montana June 3 (primary)
Montana and South Dakota (also on June 3 and partly in the West) will be the last contests before the convention, unless a couple of states that jumped the gun earlier in the year have a “do over.”
Democracy may be messy, but I prefer it to the alternatives.
Your Personal Note:
Correction: Puerto Rico is scheduled to be last on June 7. Not a state, but they will send delegates, as they should.

MORGAN BOWEN ANNOUNCES BID FOR UNITED STATES CONGRESS DISTRICT 1
Morgan Bowen filed papers today with the Utah State Lieutenant Governor’s office to seek the Democratic nomination for the United States Congress District 1. Bowen is a resident of Hyde Park in Cache Valley.
“My campaign will center around three issues critical to the future of Utah and this nation.” Bowen said. “Those issues include: Traditional Family Values, Energy Independence, and Eliminating the National Debt.”
According to Bowen, “Tax law should be structured to help, not hinder the family. Many young families are feeling the squeeze of the mortgage crisis, uncertainty in the job market, and the financial crunch from inflation in almost every consumer sector, especially $3.00 plus a gallon fuel prices.”
“As a citizen of this Nation I can no longer sit still and allow our congressman and the current administration to squander the nation’s resources to the tune of $20 billion per month on the development of the Nation of Iraq, when Iraq is bringing in $100 billion per year in unaccounted for oil revenues, enriching a select few, and contributing little to their own defense and development. Examples of waste and mismanagement over the past six years by our current congressman and the administration include the funding of a $700 million embassy in Bagdad, making it the largest, most expensive and wasteful government building project in the world.”
Bowen continued to state: “Under our current congressman, the national debt has been increased by four-trillion dollars. Every man, woman, and child in this nation owes $31 thousand in order to pay the debt that congress has saddled us with. Much of this debt is owed to nations in the Middle East and China. The fiscal irresponsibility of congress has undermined the value of the dollar and has lowered our economic standing in the world.”
“I am running for Congress because this destructive behavior has to be stopped. There is hope for a better way to do business in Washington. The first step is to change who represents the people of Utah in the Nation’s capitol.”
“The people of Utah have a long tradition of cooperation to reach great goals. As a nation we built the transcontinental rail road in less than a decade, we put a man on the moon in ten years. Starting now, we should put our resources, scientific knowhow, and effort into becoming completely energy independent in 10 years. Through sustainable energy independence, we would see major economic growth, a resurgence of university and private sector research, and reduction of pollution. More importantly, we will build our nation and not further enrich the nations of the Middle East with our wealth.”
“With resolve, cooperation, and hard work we can build a better nation for future generations.”
