It is like that because of illegal Mexicans and displaced greedy, selfish liberal Democrats fleeing from liberal high-taxation states.
Something extraordinary has happened in Colorado:
Colorado’s governor, John Hickenlooper, signed every single bill that came to his desk from the 2013 legislative session. 100% of them. The governor didn’t see a single one he didn’t like.
Which brings us back to the president’s comments, “A model for the rest of the nation.” This, Mr. President, is the model we should follow in Washington D.C. and around the country? Democrats seizing majority control, freezing out the opposition party, then passing all the legislation they can with no care or input from the other side or from the public they represent.
COLORADO IS SLOWLY BECOMING LIKE CALIFORNIA.
Colorado has been solidly blue before. Twenty some odd years ago one of Rush’s favorite foils was Colorado Senator Pat Schroeder. Gary Hart was also from Colorado.
Ping for later.
Two years ago I attended a town hall meeting of my former Congressman; George Miller of California (former as I have now moved out of the state), he said and I will paraphrase:
'Look, I am liberal, and proud of it. You elected me, because of my position and that is how I am going to vote, it does not many how many letters I get against my positions. You don't want a liberal representing you? Then vote me out.'
He won with 65% in his district.
When you get that kind of voter approval, you can afford to have that kind of an attitude.
In fairness though, I have interviewed Miller for my town paper (he well knew my position) and visited him in DC. He as well as his staff were gracious and very helpful.
Northern Colorado secession, that IS the model.
Demography is destiny.
Surely they can get more counties than that! That isn’t enough! I’d like to see Denver and Boulder surrounded.
There are Libs leaving Kalifornia in droves and changing the politics of Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada.
Just as Libs are leaving the northeast in droves and changing the politics of Florida.
Yeah, welcome to my world!
California went from solid red to solid blue after the 1986 amnesty, never to return. WE are now beholden to a democRAT super-majority in the state house — pro gun control, pro high taxes, pro statism, pro welfare/voting rights/sanctuary to illegal aliens.
There were a lot of cries at the tine about “cutting California loose” so it could sink into the ocean.
Despite all the insults, I warned and warned those in other states that in 50 years THEIR state would look exactly like MINE unless this were stopped. I was wrong about the length of time, but right about the premise.
Author should have waited for the results of the Sept. 10th RECALL ELECTIONS!!!!!!
It seems that that's what they are doing now with Syria - with the GOP-e handing them Depends.
