“We deserve so much better than what the two major parties have given us.”
- I watched his brilliant and powerful TedX talk about Genocide.
- I watched many more interviews, such as this one.
- And this excellent 1 hour interview from Texas!!
Evan McMullin- The Man, The Myth, The Mormon
Against All Odds
Evan Wins Utah Fans
Meanwhile, Evan McMullin and running mate Mindy Finn, are willing to stand for hours to greet, shake hands and have photo ops with anyone – free of charge. And we discovered personally that Evan McMullin is a candidate who can truly “reach across the aisle” and make friends with anyone – even his biggest “opponents”. As a Brigham Young University grad, Evan McMullin showed he was a great sport and he didn’t miss a beat when he “Flashed the U” with my stalwar University of Utah ‘botter rival’ UTE fan husband! 🙂 #GoUtes #WonHisVote
“It’s Never Too Late To Do The Right Thing”
There is another choice, a better choice.
This is what a true American leader looks and acts like.
McMullin has no lawsuits, no criminal activity, no scandals.
He has had no dishonorable and immoral behavior.
His words and his actions have always been considerate, patient, rational and kind.
UTAH, IT’S TIME TO PROVE YOURSELF
- Prove that you will do the right thing because it is RIGHT, not because it is popular, or because there is an expected reward.
- Prove that you care more about morals, principles, and the Constitution of this Nation than you do about Party Affiliations.
- Prove that you won’t use your vote as a weapon in a battle between 2 sides where everyone loses.
- Prove that your vote is not for sale to corrupt multi-billion-dollar candidates.
- Prove that you understand the math that a vote for Evan McMullin is NOT giving votes to Hillary, or Trump. A vote for McMullin, is a vote for McMullin.
- Prove that you are NOT going to cave into “FEAR VOTING”.
As one reporter put it, Utah can be the “designated driver of the Nation” and, as another observed “the only state in America that appears to still have a conscience.”
Fabulous writing! This campaign has been exciting to watch & looking forward to where this #McMentum leads

Thank you Holly! #VoteMcMullinFinn #WeAreHome
I wish I had heard about him earlier. I didn’t read this until after I had already held my nose and voted for Trump. I don’t like him, but I dislike Hillary more. At least I feel like he will have some constraints, since he is running as a Republican. My prayer was Dear God, give us what we need, not what we deserve. This country has gotten so far off the tracks, and by looking at the major party candidates, you can see it. They are what we deserve, but please, please may God have mercy on us.
I was really hoping that Mitt Romney would run again. I voted for him last time and would have again. Maybe Evan McMullin will run again and get the attention and endorsement of the Republican Party. Heaven knows, the Democrats would never endorse him.
I’m sorry Lynne that I didn’t post here about Evan McMullin earlier. 😦 Lots on my Twitter and Facebook, but didn’t blog. This election has certainly been a very bitter pill to swallow for all of us. Let us pray that after tonight we can piece ourselves back together again as a nation. Families and friends can start talking to each other again! If anything, this election has made many more citizens pay attention to politics and what is going on in our government. A lot of people are turning out to vote. There is a feeling that each vote matters. So, that’s a good thing! I’m headed to Evan McMullin’s Election Night party tonight, so it’s going to be an interesting and exciting experience to be watching the results come rolling in with 1200 other people…. God Bless America!
Thank you for posting your thoughts. My sentiments exactly.
Everything he stands for that is true can still be fought for and stood for. A campaign for those principles continues no matter who has the office. We don’t stop cleaning our house because we don’t like the neighbors, the mayor, or the mailman.
Acampaign goes on also to get voters in the next election to refuse to hold their noses but happily vote their conscience instead. McMullin voters were happy to do so. They were not the angry whose fury won the day.
It’s going to take work & guts, then more work & more guts to find & promote good, decent options to conscientiously vote for! We need more people like Evan, people with ideas & character we want to be at home with.
In one month since the Virginia group got started, we ended up getting almost 60,000 votes. Zero money, no party backing and only a score of volunteers (not organized, just random people doing their part stepping up when needed an email request was all it took). That’s unheard of, people felt the pull of the good.
Politics has been perceived like merely taking out the garbage, it just stinks. People won’t do it unless they have to, every fourth year. But in order to pull this off, we need to see the good, the blue prints of principle & treat ea. opportunity or person like a new piece of the home we’re building. Please keep pulling for good.
