Paul Ryan is not a great intellectual

Paul Ryan is not a great intellectual

        Recently we were introduced to a 2005 recording of Paul Ryan addressing the Atlas Society, apparently a fan club for Ayn Rand. In it he outlines his belief that Social Security should be privatized and turned over to Wall Street. The amazing part of his comments was that he claimed that whenever he had a legislative issue that, he would return to Rand’s 1957 novel, Atlas Shrugged   and re-read all 64 pages of John Galt’s radio address. Do you ... Full Story

Don’t forget your ‘neighborhood shopping

Don’t forget your ‘neighborhood shopping

With all the national campaign ads flooding our airwaves and media streams, don’t forget there are important local races going on too.  In fact, these local, often unheralded, campaigns are where the daily impact on our own personal lives is most felt in the future – where the rubber hits the road. In Larimer County, we have historically embraced strong, conservative traditional values of family, friends, individual freedoms, free enterprise, and quality, locally controlled ... Full Story

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I'm writing to support Larimer County Commissioner Tom Donnelly in his campaign for re-election.  Donnelly has done a great job, providing great constituent services for the citizens.  He goes out of his way to listen to the needs of the people.  He holds monthly citizens meetings in multiple locations in his district, plus he goes to lots of public meetings.  He's also provided great leadership with balancing the county budget.  I would definitely recommend Tom Donnelly ...

Romney: another big lie

Romney: another big lie

    4 Pinocchios for a truncated, 14-year-old Obama clip      Just as we have not been very impressed about many of the Obama campaign’s claims about Mitt Romney’s business career many years ago, we were not initially that impressed with the Romney campaign’s effort to dredge up a 14-year-old quote to demonstrate that President Obama wants to “redistribute wealth.”  The clip was so old — he was just a state senator — and the ...

Unfortunately, Van Duzer underestimated how rabidly the right-wing fringe hates the president. Republicans have organized a boycott of Big Apple Pizza because ... Full Story

Romney hates America?

Romney hates America?

          Does Romney dislike America?     By E.J. Dionne Jr.    The most incisive reaction to Mitt Romney’s disparaging comments about 47 percent of us came from a conservative friend who e-mailed: “If I were you, I’d wonder why Romney hates America so much.” A bit strong, perhaps. But the more you think about what Romney said, the more you wonder how he really feels about the country he wants to lead. What ... Full Story

Growing into liberalism

Growing into liberalism

By Stephanie Rayburn     Growing into political maturity I grew up Republican. My whole family is Republican. I grew up around my grandparents hearing slurs like "liberal idiots" and "lazy welfare recipients" even at the same time that they demonstrated how to give generously to those who need it. I listened to Rush Limbaugh -- admired him even because I was young and impressionable and I didn't yet know about how adults twist the truth for their personal benefit ... Full Story
