Desperate GOP Senators & Party Officials Squirm &
As part of our ongoing efforts
to reach citizens of all parties and backgrounds, AU
volunteers were present at the Republican organizing
convention Saturday, passing out literature on the senate's
filibuster of anti-infanticide legislation. AU friends also
played audio tape of the senate's laughter during their short
debate to ban partial birth abortions.
Many citizens in attendance
expressed gratitude for the information and our Web site. It
was refreshing to witness many decent citizens begin to
recognize their deceptive officials.
As a result of the major efforts
of Republican party activists, 40 percent of the delegates
rejected the current elitist GOP chairman and instead vote for
a candidate who had done virtually no campaigning, and who
made many bold accusations against the elitist establishment
during his speech. A proposal to institute automatic delegate
positions for party elitists was also resoundingly defeated.
Republican elitists were
predictably edgy and irritable. Senate President Alma Mansell,
for instance, asked a 15-year old for a copy of some of the AU
literature. Upon receiving that literature, he held it up in
the face of the boy and ripped it to shreds. Mansell was
indicative of the growing sense of fear and desperation we
encountered from various senators.
Several resolutions dealing with
infanticide were on the convention agenda. One moved to
strike the abortion plank of the Republican Party platform due
to the hypocrisy and repeated unwillingness of Republican
leadership to enact meaningful legislation. Top Republican
party leaders engaged in a lengthy and desperate filibuster to
keep these resolutions from being heard until enough delegates
had to go home to break up the quorum.
The battles within all parties
and organizations may seem arduous and painful today. But AU
is convinced that as citizens of all persuasions hold true and
fast to correct principles — bowing to no tyrant — they will
inevitably restore freedom and liberty in Utah and in America.
