I am proud to claim my Colorado heritage. Except for my time in the military I have spent my life here in the Mile High State, the gateway to the Rockies. It amazes me on the political scene just how either stupid or naive Coloradoans are.
In this years clamour to claim Tea Party support and reclaim conservatism, the spin and ignorance is showing without any thought. Colorado is jumping on so called Conservative candidates who are really nothing more then the same old same old. A RINO is nothing more then a liberal in disguise.
Yet it appears that RINO's are the choice of the "informed" voter. This is intolerable. The claim by Tea Party activist is information and well rounded thought on issues that have been perverted and made to walk the fine grey line of unconstitutionality.
The out pouring of Ken Buck support over Norton for the Republican Senatorial nomination is a prime example of lack of informed voters knee jerk reaction to political commercials. Ken Buck is nothing more then a Cintonite and soon to be Obama supporter. His past history clearly shows his disregard for the voter and a pushing of a liberal protectionist agenda.
Dan Maes, a no body is heralded as the next Governor of the State by Tea Party activists. Yet when one tries to ask about this man the only answer is that "oh he is a great business man". OK so what are his positions on the issues? Where does he stand on the sanctuary status that Gov Ritter and Mayor Hickenlooper have in placed. What about the over reaching budget that is penalising the Colorado small business man and tax payer? There is no answer. A quick google search reveals non answers as answers.
The latest Rasmussen survey has declared Colorado a Democrat state for this November election. With Hickenlooper in a double digit lead over Maes. Even Sen. Bennett a clear Obama bootlicker is leading Buck in the polls. You may want to look at the recent voting record of the Mass Senator who took Kennedy's seat. He won on a wave of change and Tea Party support, yet is no better then another Kennedy when it comes to voting.
While the Tea Party in Colorado spouts its support for candidates with a left liberal and non conservative history. It looks like the Liberals may pull out a win and keep Colorado under the thumb of increasing oppression to the Tax Payer.
It is evident that RINO is the ideal conservative for Colorado as real conservative candidates were dismissed early in the primaries.
Also the outrage over certain actions by the left and fake outrage over things said and done are the act of the day by the established RINO commentators against yet another candidate, Tom Tancredo.
Nationally Hugh Hewitt, of which I have met and worked with on several occasions. Is leading the charge against Tancredo. A total hypocritical stance with Hugh's comments about things. Congressman Tancredo did an excellent job as an elected official representing Colorado over the years. With reelection after reelection. Yet no that he has spoken out against the Obama administration and pointed out many acts that boarder on illegal activity, impeachable, and offensive to any Constitutional loving American. Tom is being harangued as some far right wacko. In reality He did not support the War in Iraq or Afghanistan. He supports the legalization of medicinal marijuana, very left leaning positions.
What Tancredo is being accused of is racism. A total lie. All because out of any candidate in Colorado today. Tancredo is the only one who has any sort of plan to secure this state against the invasion of ILLEGAL ALIENS. Something that is not politically correct even to RINO's like Hugh Hewitt.
While no one other then Tancredo is bringing forth the sanctuary and incompetence of Hickenlooper on this topic. Hickenlooper is gaining support. It would seem that Coloradoans have short memories. It was not so long ago that the city of Denver ousted Mayor McNickels because of a lack of snow removal capabilities. However a pass is being given to Hickenlopper who sent home the snow plow drivers because "the conditions were to dangerous". to be out of the roads. A clear lack of brain power on that. As a former state employee who did plow the roads. This is when the plows are supposed to be on the roads. Not parked in the yards waiting for the next sunny day. So Hickenlooper wastes tax payers money and throws a sledding and hot chocolate day for his lack of judgment.
Do not let us forget how Hickenlooper employed ILLEGALS to work in his businesses and restaurants. One of which became famous for the execution of a off duty Denver Police officer. Hickenloopers support for the dropping of the death penalty in order to prosecute this thug , punk was totally wrong.
Under Hickenloopers leadership Denver is over budget, over taxed, lacks civic pride by its workers. As well noted every time you see city workers standing around and ignoring the tax payer whom they are to serve. You have had phallic symbols in civic park, nudist riding bikes through the streets, and an over whelming increase in crime. Crime which the city has tried to cover up and not tell the citizenry about. Recall the roving band of thugs who attack Hispanic and single white males on the streets. Yet do to political correctness these punks have not been charged with hate crimes.
The resurfacing of Colorado Conservatism is a reality, however it is being corrupted by those who are spinning and ignoring the problems that this state is facing. By supporting RINO's. It is a loose loose situation, or a win win if you are a pot smoking hand out receiving , lack of personal fortitude and work ethic Boulderite.
With only eighty days left to the election, the time to get informed if you are a voter is almost over. The real spin and distortion of records and positions is beginning. National and International money is going to be coming in to support candidates and put out commercials that do not tell the whole truth.
Do not rely on a friend in the Tea Party to inform you on things. You had best go to the source and ask questions, take notes and get informed.
