Since the late 1970s, I have worked to get the Western states to withdraw from the Union, and now support is growing.
Washington does not represent us Westerners; our different values and agendas separate the West from the Eastern establishment.
Why should we stay in the Union when it no longer is a benefit? I urge everyone to sign the petition for Utah and the other Western states to finally be free.
