The wolf is among us. It presents a smiley face with big teeth to "protect us." He is coming to our very doorsteps to sign a "Count My Vote" petition to give him more power to "help us." Like little Red Riding Hood, we might actually be foolish enough to sign it, trusting the wolf dressed as our caring grandmother.
Most petitions are noble grassroots efforts, but this one comes from the top down power-brokers who want to bypass our caucus system. Caucuses are simply groups of average citizens who have taken the time to study the issues as well as what the candidates have been up to while in office. Caucuses have the power to decide who is qualified to appear on primary and therefore general election ballots. For example, the power of caucuses booted out a corrupt Senator Bob Bennett and put in Senator Mike Lee, who actually went into debt running for office, a sure sign of an honest politician. He is also one of the few politicians who has the courage to shake things up in Washington, something we desperately need.
The wolf is angry at the power of caucuses and wants to by-pass them, which is what the Count my Vote petition is all about. The wolf can put his own name on the ballot over the objections of the caucuses. He has plenty of money from other wolves to launch a major TV ad campaign to win any election, knowing that the average voter hasn't studied the issues and votes for a pretty face. So when the wolf comes to your door, don't sign the petition!
Those big teeth aren't there to protect you, but to eat you!
