Republicans host Freedom Forum with Gov. Gary Herbert

ST. GEORGE – The third in a series of Freedom Forums sponsored by the Washington County Republican Party will be held Friday from 7-8 p.m. at the Eccles Concert Hall on the campus of Dixie State University in St. George. The special guest speaker will be Utah Gov. Gary Herbert.

1465143_320322328105772_2009755448_nGov. Herbert will discuss some of the key principles of liberty and freedom that have been put to work in Utah and have contributed to Utah’s success as a state.

The Freedom Forums are designed to be inspirational, educational speeches given by experts, elected representatives, or other noted individuals on a variety of topics including liberty, personal responsibility, free markets, and the role of government. These one-hour events are free and open to the public, and parents are especially encouraged to bring their teenagers and young adults with them.

“Our hope and goal,” Washington County Republican Party Chairman Nick Lang said, “is that the concepts which provide the foundation for America’s greatness can be passed down to the next generation of citizens in our community.”

    I hope folks attend and urge Governor Herbert to expand Utah’s Medicaid program. Thousands of folks need it and Utah is dragging her feet in accepting the money to help our less fortunate citizens. 57Z

    .
    Liberty? Personal responsibility? Like being able to choose to have an alcoholic beverage, and being trusted to do so responsibly?
    .
    Free markets? Like government control (ownership) of one entire segment of the retail economy?
    .
    The role of government? Having a monopoly on selling liquor and erecting senseless barriers to responsible consumption of such?
    .
    Thanks, but no thanks. These speakers have nothing to offer but platitudes, bromides and other such meaningless tripe.
