Spencer Cox Violated the Utah Constitution
All political power is inherent in the people; and all free governments are founded on their authority for their equal protection and benefit, and they have the right to alter or reform their government as the public welfare may require.
- Utah Constitution
The Inability to Remove an Elected Representative is the Very Definition of Tyranny
The Legal Position that the Citizens of Utah cannot recall (or remove) an Elected Official, regardless of position, violates both the Utah Constitution as well as the United States Federal Constitution. The Federal Constitution does not Prohibit the Recall of a US Senator specifically. It allows the Senate to punish its own, but it also states that any Power not specifically granted in the U.S. Constitution to the Federal Government belongs to the States and the People Respectively.
Violating the Utah Constitution is the Very Definition of Treason
Cox's decision not only disenfranchises Utah Voters, it also empowers Lobbyists to take possession of an elected official after an election is over. With no way for the Voters to hold them accountable.In other words, the elected official can go rogue and represent interests contrary to the interests of those that elected him or her. It empowers corruption and destroys faith in the entire electoral process.
Spencer Cox Places Mitt Romney's Interests Over Those of Utah.
If Mitt Romney is worthy of office he can easily defeat a Recall Election. The Voice of the People will prevail. Denying the Constitutional Right to Alter or Remove Corrupted Officials is Grounds itself for Removal From Office. Perhaps the Best Way to Start is with an Initiative to Recall Spencer Cox.
