Philpot wants to champion state rights

Former state lawmaker and practicing attorney Morgan Philpot is running for governor challenging fellow Republican Governor Gary Herbert. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Wednesday, Philpot said his main problem with Herbert is that Herbert does not assert states’ rights in the face of federal power. “I think it applies almost across the board,” said Philpot, “whether it’s us fighting for control of our lands, the dependency on the federal dollar which is not a real dollar anymore. They’re starting to print funny money and they’re essentially insolvent. “Our debt is as large as our GDP and even our own Congressional budget office shows an outlook for America’s economy to be very bleak.” Philpot says he identifies with the Tea Party movement because of its stress on states rights and fiscal responsibility.
