Rep. Hans Hunt: Wyoming, love it or leave it

This comes from the Rev. Audette Fulbright's Facebook page. She's a minister in Cheyenne:
I wrote to my Representatives here in Wyoming about a concern I had with expanding carry laws in schools and about fracking. Here is the response I got from Rep. Hans Hunt: 
Rev. Fulbright:
I’ll be blunt. If you don’t like the political atmosphere of Wyoming, then by all means, leave. We, who have been here a very long time (I am proudly 4th generation) are quite proud of our independent heritage. I don’t expect a “mass exodus” from our state just because we’re standing up for our rights. As to your comments on fracking, I would point out that you’re basing your statement on “dangers” that have not been scientifically founded or proved as of yet.
It offends me to no end when liberal out-of-staters such as yourself move into Wyoming, trying to get away from where they came from, and then pompously demand that Wyoming conform to their way of thinking. We are, and will continue to be, a state which stands a head above the rest in terms of economic security. Our ability to do that is, in large part, to our “live and let live” mentality when it comes to allowing economic development, and limiting government oversight. 
So, to conclude, if you’re so worried about what our legislature is working on, then go back home.

Republican Rep. Hunt ran unopposed in the general election. A good illustration of the dangers of a one-party state.

Unbelievably pompous ass. Hope someone (Rev. Fulbright?) steps up to oppose him in the next election.

I agree with him. Dont come here and try to change us. We are doing just fine. Why did she move her family here anyhow? Probably to get away from people telling her things she didnt want to

I agree with Hunt. Go home to your liberal state. You should have moved to Illinois.

You obviously don't know much about Illinois. There are some parts of southern Illinois where Liberals are as welcome as they would be Rep. Hunt's part of Wyoming.

Uh, the Rev. Fullbright and her acolytes are the problem, guy.

When a self-absorbed, self-indulgent liberal gets fed up with the sloppy mess created in their home states, they move to unspoiled places, like Wyoming (and Idaho and Montana).

Unfortunately, these fools almost immediately start demanding--not suggesting, not inquiring--but demanding that the rest of us adopt the insane policies that trashed their home locations in the first place.

Bottom line, if you want to live in a socialist nirvana, please select a suitable location and move there.

Just don't be surprised if the locals don't turn out to give you a hearty send-off. They'll be too busy dancing a jig of happiness to pay you any further attention.

Wyoming is a conservative place, I'll grant you that. That doesn't mean that everyone acts and thinks and believes alike. I'm thankful for that.

Im sure any native americans who read Rep. Hunts remarks had to be laughing there asses off. Hunt claims to be a 4th generation wyoming resident. If that is true then his great grandparents did the same thing but on a much larger and violent scale to the native americans (who lived in wyoming for much longer than a mere 4 generations) that he is now complaining about liberials doing in modern day wyoming. Like many modern day "conservatives" Rep. Hunts hypocrisy knows no bounds.
