Why Colorado Is Blue
Shout Bits Blog ^ | 3/4/13 | Shout Bits

Posted on 03/04/2013 12:39:43 PM PST by Shout Bits

Today, Colorado Senate President, John Morse, will lead the Democrat charge to outlaw most weapons in Colorado. Most modern pistols, rifles, and shotguns will become illegal when using standard magazine sizes (over 15 rounds) and configurations (extendable shell tubes). Current owners will be allowed to keep the newly illegal weapons, but only in their direct possession (i.e. lending weapons is illegal, even having the weapons repaired is illegal). Democrats do not think these weapons are so bad they should be banned outright; rather they want to marginalize their owners and put them on a legal tightrope of intimidation. Mr. Morse, punk, further insults Colorado voters by limiting their right to object to 90 minutes, total, of debate. Morse, fascist, further had the temerity to complain about the NRA "bussing" in opponents, perhaps explaining his very undemocratic curtailment of debate. Well, Mr. Morse, traitor: boo-hoo; bussing in political activists is a Democrat tactic, and given Colorado's demographics, you had better get used to it.

Ten years ago, Colorado was a reliably red state with nearly all statewide elected officials associating Republican. Even then Colorado was closely divided. A group of four hugely wealthy hard-left Democrats, including socialist Pat Stryker and gay-rights bully Tim Gill, knew that by increasing Denver registration and turnout, Colorado could turn blue. Colorado has only 5 million residents, so organizing Denver's 620,000 left-leaning residents had a significant impact. The 'Gang of Four' used their wealth to do just that. Colorado must have been short of professional agitators because the Gang's efforts relied on out-of-state community organizers. As a smallish and closely divided state, Colorado is open to influence by well-funded organizers who use out-of-state labor.

Colorado's shift to strong blue was complete in 2012 when the last levers of power shifted to Democrat control. Taking marching orders from Washington, the Democrat's first order of business was to marginalize, criminalize, and deny the rights of gun owners. Morse must live under a rock to be surprised that the NRA and other rights organizations took an interest. With proper investment, Colorado can turn red again, especially with Second Amendment rights on the front burner. The NRA is itching to punish Democrats who attempt to ban guns, and Colorado's small populace and frontier spirit makes it ground zero for a protracted fight. The Democrats will almost surely ban most weapons, and Gov. Hickenlooper has already pledged to reverse his positions and sign the bills.

While anyone taking political advice from V.P. Biden is a fool, Democrats must not have any inkling of the political hammer coming their way for making Colorado the most anti-rights and fascist state in the region. Morse should understand why Colorado turned blue, and he should also realize that the out-of-state tactics that put him in power will now throw him out.

People are pointing to demographics as the reason for our electoral vote problems. Now, this is attributing it to activists getting voters registered and to the polls. Both have an impact.

The biggest factor in this trend, however are the migrations from blue states to red states. Californians are moving to NV, CO, ID, and AZ and bringing their voting behaviors with them. Same is true in VA, NC, GA, and FL...not to mention NH. People are moving out of NY, NJ, MA, PA and other blue states and continuing to vote for the same policies that screwed up their old states. It is like a cancer eating our country.

I do not disagree with your analysis. However, CO went from red to blue in four years. I do not think such a big shift can be explained by migration, which happens more slowly.

It’s everything you said, but don’t discount the the 1965 Immigration Act. Thanks to Ted Kennedy we have over 40 million LEGAL immigrants in the U.S.....most of whom are from the third world & are dirt poor. They are voting democrat along with well-off Asians who the republican party has lost since the 80s.

Methinks I’m going to be moving up to Casper or Laramie in the next couple of years.

Good Luck with that.

Only time I’ve ever been to Boulder was when Charlton Heston came to speak. That was not a pretty scene.

Yeah that was pretty amazing. What was his name - Churchill? I'm up here in northern Colorado, Weld County, and we're good to go, so far.

But as I said above, I'm ready to boogie on up to Wyoming in a minute, if need be.

States with low populations are victims of commie activism.

That's how they got gay marriage in Iowa. The out-of-state activists came in and put the screws to the court system.

Since then I believe those IA judges have been thrown out by the voters.

Yep, Ward.

I'm looking at Park County, WY (Teton County is LOST!)

(One of my kids wanted to go to CU, but he went to MtSU instead - no way was I going to help fund that PC kr@p in Boulder, though MtSU is still slipping leftwards).

In North Carolina they are using voter fraud on a massive scale. I think a lot of the people leaving red states tend to be more conservative. So, I think there are other factors involved. Sounds like they figure out a way to manipulate elections in Colorado. The Colorado GOP should take lessons from North Carolina on how to take back the state. The GOP controls everything in the state government in North Carolina, winning the governorship in 2012.

Pat Stryker

The Stryker siblings are some of the worst bank-rollers out there. Jon Stryker is a faggot billionaire heir in Kalamazoo who funds the dems and a bunch of gay groups.

That is what made Vermont they way it is from what I understand. Voters who have voted for a bunch of policies that ruin NY, then move to Vermont to escape them. Once in Vermont vote for the same bad policies.

I have never understood why those who leave places like CA or NY, move to states like Colorado, and vote to turn them into the places that they have left.

Same for immigrants. They come here from a third world crap-hole and then vote to turn it into the same third world crap-hole.

Colorado has only 5 million residents, so organizing Denver's 620,000 left-leaning residents had a significant impact.

Metro Denver is 2.7 million people.

The Denver-Aurora-Boulder Combined Statistical Area is 3.1 million.

I don't know if it's still true, but they used to say that over half the counties in the state -- the rural ones -- were losing population.
