Admitting to being a Democrat in Utah doesn't exactly open doors, either.
At least the republicans here don't have pretense of tolerance or
enlightenment, so it's not a disappointment and you know what to expect.
Wait, there's another Democrat like me in American Fork? Shouldn't we
be in some kind of club together?
You'll get a lot more tolerance in Utah for being a Democrat than you ever
will in Hollywood for being a Republican. Liberals always claim tolerance and
they are--as long as it's anyone who agrees with them. Anyone who
disagrees with them is an intolerant bigot. Conservatives know
about liberalism because we are bombarded with it constantly from the news
media, TV, movies, etc. In Hollywood, they have no idea about conservatives
because they live in an echo chamber and talk to no one but themselves. They
don't even know what conservatives believe or stand for. That's the
definition of being a provincial and that's exactly what they are.
I loved "Married with Children".
About 1/2 of the legislators in Salt Lake County are Democrat. The County Mayor
is Democrat. The Congressional Candidate with the largest chunk of voters in
Salt Lake County is a democrat. Sad, but true.
