Nadine, Eliza and I went to see the movie “Lincoln” in Coon
Rapids today; a great movie in general showing the activities of the period
ending the civil war. Two critical errors of the movie were 1. The repeated
reference to America as a democracy, our Republic was created specifically to
avert any democracy leanings, the founders hated democracy governments. 2. The portrayal
of Lincoln acting as a “King” not president in usurping powers not afforded a president
under our Constitution.
As a candidate for public office and my wife as a political widow
we appreciated and related with many private and public interactions and
relational aspects presented in the movie about Lincoln and his wife.
Critical aspects of our governments textual process presented
in the movie would misguide the politically unknowledgeable movie patron. The
movie has value but against the backdrop of a patron holding a solid conviction
for Constitutional Republic government.
Last night Fox news 9 ran a story on the new (illegal)
federal regulations prohibiting 75W incandescent light bulb sales after
12/31/12. The news report claimed the mandated replacement curly florescent 75W
bulbs cost just a little more than existing incandescent bulbs and last
Being so irritated by the “NEWS” reporting false statistical
facts I called the station and left a blistering message. Perhaps not my finest
moment but I have had it with media propaganda spewing as “NEWS”.
Today I visited Menards in Fridley making an equal comparison
of cost and longevity of both bulb types based on the packaging labels of the
produces and not my “opinion”.
Package claim for 75W curly bulbs
Longevity 9.1 years at 3 hours a day or 9,945 lifetime hours
Cost $4.75 each
Package claims for 75W incandescent bulbs
Longevity 1.8 years at 3 hours a day or 1,599 lifetime hours
Cost $.42 each
Conclusion the new bulbs cost 11 times the price providing
only 6 times the lifespan. Neither claim made by FOX news of “…just a little
more…” or “…25,000 to 50,000 hours…” is true.
Nadine and I want to wish everyone a very merry Christmas
2012. Taking time for reflection of the blessed Christmas story given our world
in the New Testament Gospels of Matthew and Luke about the birth of man’s
The two of us wish you and yours a blessed spiritual Christmas
season with family, friends sharing, giving to others as a symbol of God’s gift
for our soul; the gift of Christ, as the song Silent Night clearly articulates
“…Heavenly hosts sing hallelujah, Christ the Savior is born, Christ the savior
Saturday Nadine and I received our first Christmas card of
the season. The Christmas card came unexpectedly from a lifetime democrat
Columbia Heights City Council member and his wife.
What a joyful Christmas year as people show their respect
during the season to politically opposed members of the community. Nadine and I
thank this community member and his family for their thoughtful kindness and
wish them the very best possible Christmas Day.
Government is the only entity in a society in which every
interaction, contact, or exchange is by force, all other entity interactions
are voluntary. Our founders recognized this fact, offering a Devine heritage to
succeeding generations by created a free Republic.
The price for keeping the Devine heritage is a society of moral,
self controlled, individuals, coveting wisdom, eternally vigilant at
Nadine and I along with Mona, her daughter and a friend of
hers attended White Christmas at the Heights Theater tonight. There was 30
minute live organ presentation and 20 minute live solo vocalist from Chanhassen
Theater who sang several Christmas songs prior to the movie presentation.
Great theatrical presentations, wonderful acoustics, a great
classic movie; I especially appreciated my lovely wife bringing me and
neighbors to share the evening. What a great way to enjoy the Christmas season.
Our first Christmas in years where we have resources for an elaborate
event, yet we chose a modest, down to earthaffair, providing adorable practical necessity gifts to loved ones, nothing
splashy or costly, just simple and meaningful.
This Christmas is our best in years, not for the resources
to splash friends and family with but for the discipline to restrain our
Christmas to meaningful reflection of what really matters; family, friends the spirit
of Christmas “Christ”.
Here we go, as I predicted, the U.S
Supreme Court will decide marriage. The court has no authority to decide
anything, only administration of justice as law as written (issuing an “opinion”
not dictate law from the bench) but the GOP and Republican leadership will not
stand or restrain the illegal dictates of a rogue Supreme Court on homosexual
marriage, and Christians are so clueless to the Constitutional provisions of
restraint chained on the court, they will kneel to the court decision.
The GOP should and could remove the
Justices tomorrow for crimes against the Constitution for taking this issue up
on their docket. Instead expect the GOP to use any Supreme Court ruling in
support of homosexual marriage to scare voters to vote Republican as they have
for 40 years on the issue of abortion.
I thank every one for each hour invested in our campaign
over the years. And treasure each dollar given. Nadine and I personally thank
everyone. There is one candidate committed to preserving our Republic, one candidate
prepared to challenge the special interests in St. Paul, a candidate willing to
challenge any “sacred cow” where ever found, including if need be, non profit
organizations like Village Fest to preserve the “Rule of Law” and our Republic.
Should everyone who has stated support for Tim Utz for
HD41-B vote such, we will win tonight. The victory is in each one of those
single votes cast. People from business executive to the poorest in our
community, every walk in life, every nationality, across every demographic and
age group have declared support for our campaign.
Tonight will tell if citizens are done with politics as
usual, citizens have rising up seeking an alternate, the citizens have an
alternate in HD41-B, the citizens have a candidate willing to change politics
as usual. Your single vote has the power to preserve the Republic, elect a
Constitutional Advocate, now let’s go vote.
On Friday November 2, 2012 Tim and a couple supporters attended
the monthly fundraiser at Lighthouse Community Living in Columbia Heights, Minnesota.
The Kiwanis club was the fundraising recipient this month. Consider taking
advantage of local community service opportunities.
People say until you walk in my shoes for a while then
caution on what you say about someone. Being a candidate perhaps has the
broadest emotional experience possible meeting thousands of citizens who have thousands
of personalities and opinions. Harder still is the family who lives with a
candidate for public office, the countless hours and days of endless campaigning
before any short break, then cherishing those moments void of political
Such was a moment captured by Mona on November 3, 2012 just
days before Election Day as Nadine and I stopped for a few minutes, exhausted
and seeking each other to lean on spiritually and physically.
Only other candidates can relate to this moment but I wanted
to share a glimpse of the commitment committed candidates endure running an aggressive,
purposeful, winning campaign and moments of family life.
On October 22, 2012 Tim participated in a forum hosted by
the League of Women Voters in New Brighton, Minnesota. The final debate of the
Election year included some amazing comments by the other candidates. For those
who attended there were plenty of contrasting moments by candidate clearly indicating
a variation of views on the function and purpose of government. Tim’s father,
visiting from California joined the in studio audience, proudly watching his
son debate state level politics. .
Below is a link to the forum provided by the cable company
Another aspect of a campaign is the candidate longevity and
ability to grow support and strength leading into the final stretch. The Tim
Utz for Minnesota House 41-B continues seeing the voter support increase. The Campaign
Finance Board report directly reflects our lead in this race.
According to the Campaign Finance Board reports between July
23, 2012 and October 22, 2012 Constitution Party candidate Tim Utz raised
$5,253.01 from individuals, the DFL incumbent Carolyn Laine raised $3,631.66
from individuals, and the Republican challenger raised an embarrassing $75.00

Thank you to Terri B. of St.
Anthony and Greg S. of Columbia Heights for responding to our request of
donations and giving $20.00 each for the election night party. Those dollars
are a great help purchasing the food. Also we need fuel for the bus during the

Please give now by visiting
our website at www.timutzforhouse.com
or stopping by “The White House” with a cash donation.
I have worked along side Tim for over 4 years. He is honest,
trustworthy and tireless in his effort to represent you and to benefit all of
MN. He is inspired and inspiring. One idea to educate and to inform via YouTube
started in 2009 with a hand held camcorder. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0pK4GA31_0
His fledgling idea evolved into a half hour studio produced cable show with
conservative activist and radio personality Sue Jeffers co-hosting with Tim. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WW0d13VbUAw&feature=relmfuSue and Tim produced and distributed no
less than thirty shows under his title of "We the People" reaching
over 100 cities.
“We the People” inspired another series with Jeffers hosting
called "Constitutional Candidates" having no less than sixty other
candidates ranging from City Council, State House, State Senate, Judicial, U.S.
Congressional to political groups such as EdWatch and MN Majority broadcast to
nearly 100 cities throughout MN. Tim Utz had a positive state wide impact and
demonstrated without question his leadership abilities over the last four plus
With Tim elected as our HD 41B Representative you can look
forward to frequent, honest and transparent legislative updates. If you want to
know where Tim stands on any issue read our MN State Constitution. You can
trust Tim to demonstrate political courage and to uphold the Rule of Law.
Please join me and vote for Tim Utz on Nov 6, 2012.
One of the fun “thinking outside the box” campaign
activities is Halloween; where our campaign drives around the district in the
campaign bus distributing candy to the kids and campaign business cards to the
parents. October 31, 2012 was our 5th year of participating in
As during last year we purchased Utz brand Halloween
pretzels; marketing switch from the previous years of candy distribution. The
adventure started at 5:30PM in St. Anthony, traveling to New Brighton, Columbia
Heights, Hilltop and concluded in Columbia Heights at 8:30PM. Of the 150 or so
adults we had direct contact with only 3 were declaring a negative reaction to
our efforts. Any candidate would faint at that approval ratio.
Far to many positive stories to share on this post, but one
specific example will provide an idea of the mood in the streets. One father
politely declined our pretzel package stating “…I am already voting for Tim,
give my pretzels to someone else who could use it…”
Want to help change political as usual in St. Paul; then
donate in the closing days of the campaign season at www.timutzforhouse.com.Nadine and I have personally invested
thousands of dollars supporting the campaign in 2012 and could use help in the
closing days for campaign bus fuel and Election Day costs.
After another grueling day of campaign trail activity,
Nadine, Mona and I made a stop at St. Anthony Village Pub in St. Anthony. We
had fun reviewing the day’s activities, telling family stories, and enjoying
the great food. Nadine and I even found time for some personal activity during
Have you not participated in campaign activities, you still
have a couple days to join us and experience the unusual of American politics
in a Republic.
We have a new addition to our home, a friendly cat named
“Beauty” who loves people. With Nadine and I constantly campaigning or being
grandparents the last days of election season we took a short break at home on
October 29, 2012 and joined Beauty who lives “The Cats Life” of leisure.
Going home for a shot time helps a candidate, wife and volunteers
regroup, and share experiences while refreshing the body and soul. There is
only a few days remaining and you can still participate by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is always something new, unique, unusual or just
bizarre on the campaign trail, especially with the amount of hours this
campaign spends meeting the voters. Sunday 10/28/12 was no exception when our
team came across an independent film crew producing a portion of their movie at
Kodiak County Park in Columbia Heights.
The crew was just wrapping up and packing equipment when we
came in contact. I could not pass the opportunity of meeting the energetic
group, shake hands, get a photo and suggest they vote Tim Utz on Election Day
to shake up politics as usual in St. Paul. The group thought my suggestion was
great and is voting Tim Utz on Election Day, Tuesday November 6, 2012.
On October 28, 2012 in the late afternoon with 800 doorknob
hangers remaining and the sun quickly setting the team put the door hanging
activity in full gear finishing up in the dark. After 9.5 hours of working with
a couple short breaks the team being exhausted finally finished and returned to
“The White House” just after 7:00PM.
Help replenish the campaign bank cash reserves and make a
generous donation in the remaining days of the campaign season at www.timutzforhouse.com.
Occasionally individuals locate our campaign bus, flag us
down and bring tidings of joy in the form of CASH. We always record the cash
donations and like good little servants of the state report the gifts.
Such was the experience on October 28, 2012 when the Tim Utz
for Minnesota HD41-B campaign chairman Greg Sloat located us distributing
doorknob hangers in the north area of Columbia Heights. Greg wanted to document
his donation via a photograph, letting the world know he proudly supports Tim’s
campaign without apology, encouraging all Republicans in the district to join
him and vote on Election Day for who we all know is the best candidate in 2012
On Wednesday October 28, 2012 while distributing our literature
in Columbia Heights our team took a short break and made a stop at Holiday
station store at 43rd and Central. Patrons and store management
alike were enthusiastic and participatory with our groups visit to Holiday. Everyone
had a great time conversing, joking and talking about our campaign.
After making our purchases we enjoyed some time eating in
the campaign bus before returning to literature distribution.
