For the seven Republicans who are running for Colorado governor, the race now shifts to a complicated game of new math.

The reality is that no one expects all seven to make the June 24 primary ballot, but a clearer picture of who’s still in the running will emerge next month.

Two things will happen then:

The secretary of state’s office will finish counting the signatures of candidates who gathered signatures to petition onto the ballot.

And the Colorado Republican Party will host its state assembly on April 12. The state assembly is where the 4,150 delegates selected at their precinct caucuses on March 4 will have a chance to vote for their favorite candidate for governor. Those candidates need a certain percentage of votes to make the ballot.

“It’s going to be exciting, that’s for sure,” state party spokesman Owen Loftus said.

He pointed to the large number of candidates in the race and the mood of Republicans, who believe they finally have a shot of winning one or both of the two big statewide races, for governor and the U.S. Senate.

Running for governor are former Congressmen Bob Beauprez and Tom Tancredo; state Sen. Greg Brophy and former Senate Minority Leader Mike Kopp; Secretary of State Scott Gessler; Adams County businessman Steve House; and rancher Roni Bell Sylvester. Continue reading

 Despite adding almost a trillion dollars to our national debt and failing to keep the unemployment rate at or below 8% as advertised, liberals consider President Obama’s signature stimulus package — the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act — a success, in part because of the number of jobs it “saved.”

Beyond the obvious failings of the president’s plan, now more than five years old, the approach is illustrative of how presidents sometimes try to stabilize an economy using fiscal policy.

But there is a right way and a wrong way.

Sen. Ted Cruz recently remarked on two very different fiscal policy outcomes:

“Reaganomics means you start a business in your garage; Obamanomics means you move into your parent’s garage.”

Obama’s prescription for the last recession was to reinvigorate the economy by passing the ARRA and other policies over the next four years. These included ObamaCare to regulate the health care market, Dodd-Frank to regulate banks, Cash for Clunkers and extending unemployment benefits that collectively increased economic uncertainty and reduced incentives to hire and work.

The passage of these historically large spending measures, plus lower tax revenues from a sluggish economy, led to record federal budget deficits that exceeded $1 trillion in fiscal years 2009 to 2012 and have thus far added almost $6 trillion to our national debt after fiscal year 2013.

“Choice Words That Win”

These short videos equip Conservatives to confidently discuss issues with friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers who may not already be Conservatives.

“Why Choice?” introduces the series, explaining why we must take our word back from the Left. Choice is a Conservative value – not a Liberal one!

Our first series after “Why Choice?” is on abortion. This series first shows how to diffuse the emotions surrounding this issue so a rational conversation can take place – then we provide winning points for that conversation. Since this topic is rather complex, it is presented in four parts.

We greatly appreciate your help in spreading the word about The Party Of Choice. If you enjoy these videos, please share them with others.

Abortion, Part 1: Diffusing the Abortion Bomb

Abortion, Part 2: The Choice of Life

Part 3: Those Intense Abortion Issues – Rape

Part 4: Partial Birth and Late Term Abortions

Article V symposium

Presented by Colorado’s First Committee, the Article V Symposium will feature Professor Robert G. Natelson and other prominent constitutionalists in an eye-opening discussion of the state-initiated amendment process.

Come and join us as we explore Colorado’s role in this national effort and the pending resolution designed to involve this all-important check and balance.

$10 Early Bird & $16 Day of the Event

MC and Moderator – Professor Rob Natelson

100 fifth graders head to State Capitol on Friday, March 14 to quiz legislators and lobbyists on U.S. Constitution, students to read the Declaration of Independence on House floor


DENVER, Colo., March 10, 2014 – The Liberty Day Institute, a Colorado-based nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to promoting civics education, will be sending in more than 100 fifth-graders from Englewood, Northglenn, and Craig to quiz legislators and lobbyists on the U.S. Constitution.  For the second time in history, fifth grade students will also read the Declaration of Independence on the House floor.

liberty day2“Liberty Day gives us the opportunity to pause from WHAT we’re doing here in the State Capitol and reflect on WHY we’re doing it — so that our ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the Earth,’” said House Speaker Mark Ferrandino.  “Thanks to Andy McKean, Jimmy Sengenberger and all who are involved with making our Liberty Day observance so meaningful.”


Last year, Speaker Ferrandino originated the idea of students themselves reading the Declaration.  He readily agreed to do so again this year.
