With the Utah Color project, I follow local community events very closely.
Through te years I've noticed that there are hundreds of events about expanding the state. Ninety plus percent of the public events I've attended in this state are about expanding the state and curbing individual freedom.
The voices for freedom in this state never do anything.
I was just looking through the Utah United calendar. This calendar was set up in 2010 by some group claiming to be conservative defenders of freedom.
There is not a single future event listed in the calendar.
For the last four years, I've been trying to find someone, anyone, willing to spend an afternoon talking about free market health care reform. So, I've followed this calendar since its inception.
I've made repeated attempts to contact the group, only to be brushed off.
I am screaming upset at the point that Conservatives push everyone aside with their claims of being defenders of freedom, then never do anything to advance the cause of freedom.
The group complains that the Utah media doesn't give them enough air time. But they don't get it.
It is not the media that's the problem. The problem is that Conservatives (at least in Utah) never do anything interesting.
The media is driven by the story. If freedom loving groups did things that were interesting, they would get media.
By being closed minded and failing to act, Conservatives undermine the cause of liberty. I believe that people would love to be active in defending the American experiment in self-rule. But that cannot happen as long as conservatives slam the door and shut everyone out.
The Utah United calendar is empty for 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
I want to act. It is driving me crazy that there is no one within 500 miles of Salt Lake interested in defending freedom; so I am back to thinking of hitting the road and creating a traveling show that discusses health freedom.
The experiment in self-rule started by the Founders of the US was a good thing. There has to be someone, somewhere interested in preserving it.
There is nothing happening in Utah, so I am thinking
