The proposed Utah Inland Port raises many issues of concern. Once again, the Utah Legislature is not paying attention to public sentiment and once the container has been opened, there's no going back down the track.
What's Really in the Box?
What would it be like living in a nation that abandoned too much of its democracy?
Unfortunately it would be like living in Utah on the edge of letting democracy slip away.
What Would It Be Like?
As we know by now, Climate Change is, in large part, due to Over Population on the planet. Increased pollution and a decrease in natural resources like water are major contributors to global warming.
What can we do to help save our vulnerable planet? Action and regulations are needed and needed NOW.

Does the Republican Party really support your beliefs about the climate, gun control, education, clean air vs. more pollution?
Think About It!!
Our form of government is a Representative Democracy where we elect individuals to represent us and our interests in the legislature.
When our representatives reflect the will of the majority - we receive beneficial legislation.
