The angry reception Orrin Hatch received at the town hall meeting in American Fork last week should sound a wakeup call for the Republican Party. People are mad and they blame both political parties for our economic and political nightmare.

Most conservatives and independents I know would like to support the Republican Party, but the GOP must return to true conservative values and constitutional principles before it can happen.

Big changes are needed, including a change of leadership. Orrin Hatch and Bob Bennett have presided over this mess for 33 and 17 years, respectively. It is time to vote them out, clean house, and make a new start.
