FortyFive politics was founded by a group of Utah conservatives who wanted to add a conservative voice to the political conversation in Utah.

Why the name FortyFive?

  • Utah is the 45th state in the Union. This site’s focus is on politics and issues related to Utah.
  • Utah’s official state firearm is a .45 caliber M1911 pistol. The founders of FortyFive are strong supporters of the right to bear arms.
  • The number 45 was a popular slogan of liberty in 18th century Briton and America. The number became 45 britonassociated with liberty after John Wilkes published issue number 45 of the radical newspaper The North Briton, in which Wilkes was critical of King George III and went so far as to call the king a liar.  “The number 45 came to represent the triumph of the common citizen against the all-powerful force of an overbearing national government.” (Mike Lee)
