Foreign policy, healthcare, education, and the acceptable size of government were among some of the issues addressed by Senator Mike Enzi during a listening session held at the Niobrara County Fairgrounds on Monday. The session was billed as an opportunity for the Senator to collect “Common Sense from Wyoming for Washington.” Reiterating this theme, Enzi cited Wyoming’s governmental model as a desirable template for business in the nation’s capitol.

“If I could take the culture of the Wyoming Legislature to Washington, it would be a lot better place,” Enzi said.

The first topic that Enzi spoke to was the Western-sponsored jihad against the secular Bashir al-Assad regime. Enzi contrasted the current Syrian conflict with the previous Libyan revolution, citing the successful use of no-fly zones against deceased Colonel Moammar Gadhafi. Enzi followed this comparison with some rhetorical questions concerning the conspicuous absence of such measures in the Syrian civil war, which he argued was bloodier than the Libyan conflict. Implicit in Enzi’s line of questioning were the assertions that there exists a selective criteria for the enforcement of no-fly zones and that a bias towards the previous presidential administration pervades the country’s dominant media organs.
