“Utah’s very roots were Democrat.”
So was the Deep South’s. How is that working out for ya?
And the Deep South's roots was racism. How is that workin' out for ya?
[Point: We all know the transformation that has occurred in the South; and we know the political changes that have taken place in Utah; the point I'm making about Utah Territory & early Utah statehood is that Utah is starting to creep back to those days...now if you want to point out that the Deep South is starting to creep back to its 19th century days as some sort of "parallel," be my guest...but it'll be up to you to supply some facts on that estimation]
