Colorado recall effort takes aim at Democrats after gun bills

DENVER - Colorado gun-rights advocates, furious about last week’s signing of three hotly debated gun control bills, are launching recall drives against at least four Democratic legislators and possibly the governor.

Gov. John Hickenlooper was greeted Saturday by a crowd chanting “Recall Hickenlooper!” outside Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, where he delivered a speech at the Club 20 annual spring meeting. Recall supporters say they are studying the feasibility of such an effort.

Meanwhile, the secretary of state has approved petition language for recall drives aimed at Senate President John Morse and state Rep. Mike McLachlan, who both represent swing districts and voted in favor of the three gun control bills.

Efforts are also under way to recall state Sen. Evie Hudak and state Rep. Rhonda Fields. Both were highly visible during the gun debate: Mrs. Fields sponsored the bill limiting magazine capacity to 15 rounds, while Mrs. Hudak came under criticism for arguing during a hearing with a rape victim over whether she could have protected herself with a gun.

governor Chickenpooper is a new style communist that is preparing the takeover of America. He thinks he can change the Constitution to take away first the second amendment.

Want to make a difference ? You won’t do it preaching here Start your own vocal group Be your own precinct captain The piece below is designed to be printed up and passed around your precinct and your friends and neighbors as a (index sized) palmcard. On the face (REVERSE SIDE)or below the slogan you can put the name of the candidate you favor and the election dates...EXCELLENT FOR SLIPPING UNDER WINDSHIELD WIPERS ON CARS PARKED IN KEY PARKING LOTS CHURCHES, RALLY SITES....

DEMO-COMS AND RINO CRYERS
GOD DENIERS AND PREDACIOUS LIARS
ARE REDISTRIBUTE WEALTH INCITERS/
FIRST YOUR MONEY THEN YOUR GUNS
ISSUING DECREES OF MANY COME
DEMAND SURRENDERING CHOICES ONE BY ONE
INTO REGIMENTATION YOU MUST RUN
AND NOW THEIR ROBOT YOU’VE BECOME

It’s time to get government out of Our faces
Our religions and and Our pocketbooks

It’s time to remind Colorado voters
The democrats decided to remove God or any reference to Our Creator at their 2012 convention.

When that happened they also demonstrated they are no longer the democratic party of your father’s father. They have become a hyphenated radical unit and should be known as Demo-Coms dedicated to the establishment of a collective idealism using the device of PCP to modify behavior and shed beliefs that they believe would impede remaking their concept of the perfect utopian state. That is hardly democratic because the word democrat idealizes the individual voice.

Rove, GOPES (GOP Elite Snobs) and RINOS lack the capacity or the understanding or the courage to point to the historic radicalization that occured at that moment and use it politically. Worse yet they are unable to forthrightly defend what the demo-coms have set out to destroy and some are even comming up with their own version of PCP . Anyone preaching PCP is going down the poisonous road to oblivion . Following a policy of PCP. Politically Correct Politics which the hyphenated democrat party, the Demo-Coms,is using is flat out wrong.Worse yet moral questions such as marriage, sexual practices, family constituency and particularly beliefs those of containing Judeo Christian tenets are being assulted and not defended. That offers a majority of voters no choice in the direction this country is to take.

PCP when used by the Demo-Coms such terms as: Afro-American, Hispanic-American, Asian-American, White-American, Rich-American ,Gay-American, are more than simply nouns but vehicles used to separate US from each other. Beside separating US from our money the Demo-Coms demand we become adhearents to a system without the constituional constraints on government. Thus surrendering our protections from governmental abuses and excessive bureacracy to the will of a bureaucratic collective which is no longer answerable to the average citizen.

Sadly for the Republicans God remains in Limbo
It’s Time For God and Country

It would be a great thing, and a good message to gun-grabbers everywhere, if each and every one of these statist tools who voted for these anti-gun bills got the boot. Not that such would dissuade all of them, since they are quasi-suicidal anyway. I get the impression that most who do get canned by the electorate end up being rewarded by their taskmasters in any case.

Such an action would be the first essential step in revoking all these anti-gun laws that have been ramrodded through.

Colorado folks do have a big headwind to fight in this effort: Too many California lefties who have moved there and brought their collectivist politics with them. That is a problem.

It is interesting to see what the Democrats are doing to the Second Amendment ,considering that the Second Amendment was put in the Constitution to prevent them from doing it.

Far too many of such are appointed or otherwise immune to such removal methodology. Nevertheless, Some such have nevertheless been removed.

Good idea. They've got one in the Tower of London we could copy.

If they get canned by the voters, they will be quickly rewarded with high paying jobs in liberal non-profits.
