Sweeney for HD49

Sweeney for HD49

To the Editor, As an Independent voter, I decided to review my options for leadership in the Colorado House of Representatives for District 49. As the Internet seemed to be the best source, I found a debate between the two candidates that was compelling enough to support my voting decision. The Estes Park League of Women Voters sponsored a Candidate Forum on September 22 that conveyed the platforms of both candidates. What was most concerning in this opportunity to hear the ...

Tom is a husband and father of four and from his farming roots to his current service as Larimer County Commissioner, Tom is a hard worker.

Amendment 69: Opportunity for Change

Amendment 69: Opportunity for Change

To the editor: I support ColoradoCare-Amendment 69 because it will provide access to affordable, quality healthcare for all Coloradans. This matters to the families of Coloradans who die each year because they don’t have health insurance; to those declaring bankruptcy because they can’t pay medical bills; to those who pay ever higher premiums for increasing deductibles and more limited benefits; to healthcare providers who deal with more paperwork and red tape to provide patients the ...

Buzz Sweeney for District 49

I am running for Colorado House of Representatives District 49 because you deserve a choice. Two years ago my opponent ran unopposed.  The differences between us is like night and day. I am absolutely sure women should receive equal pay for equal work and make their own health care decisions. Science, not intuition, tells me why the polar ice is melting and why our trout streams are warming. In 2004 Colorado adopted the forward thinking goal of 30% of our electrical power coming ...

Buzz Sweeney Challenging Perry Buck for Colorado

Buzz Sweeney Challenging Perry Buck for Colorado District 49 House Seat

By Judith Powers Buzz Sweeney is challenging Republican Perry Buck for the District 49 House Seat in the Colorado Legislature. “You deserve a choice,” he says, referring to the fact that his opponent was unopposed in the last election, which gave progressives no choice at all. “I want to be your Representative because you deserve a choice between someone who might or might not represent your values, and me, a social progressive who is an economic conservative,” said Sweeney at ...

He wants single payer health care and believes women’s decisions are their ... Full Story

The numbers don’t lie—but Trump does

The numbers don’t lie—but Trump does

By Tom H. Hastings According to a Fox News poll taken this week, voters believe Donald Trump would do better than Hillary Clinton on the economy. This is a wildly poor assumption. Look at the fair and reasonable indicators. We can surmise that Trump would continue his fact-free shoot-from-the-hip predatory capitalist approach, and that his policies might look more like George W. Bush’s than anyone else’s. We can also logically guess that Clinton’s policies would resemble those of ... Full Story

In defense of Hillary Clinton

In defense of Hillary Clinton

The most thorough, profound and moving defense of Hillary Clinton I have ever seen. By NewDealer Saturday Jun 11, 2016 · 8:05 PM MDT First of all — this is not my writing.  It's a Facebook post by someone I don’t even know, a man named Michael Arnovitz in Portland OR.  But as a Facebook post it passes the fair use test and I’m quite certain he would not object that I share it here (he doesn’t).   The original Facebook post is here: ...

Hastert Dysfunctional as Speaker

Hastert Dysfunctional as Speaker

Now, Dennis Hastert Seems an Architect of Dysfunction as Speaker On Washington By CARL HULSE MAY 2, 2016 WASHINGTON — The book jacket for J. Dennis Hastert’s 2004 memoir, “Speaker,” proudly notes how little known he was by the public despite being one of the most powerful people in America. “Not because he has anything to hide,” it says, “but because he doesn’t care who gets the credit.” It turns out that John Dennis Hastert did have something to hide, something ...

Another choice for Senator from Colorado

Another choice for Senator from Colorado

Meet The Senate Candidate Challenging The Corporate Takeover Of Democracy MINNEAPOLIS — The ballots may say Democrat or Republican, but this election cycle, it’s felt more like “imperialist neocon” or “racist fascist.” The corporate-aligned, two-party duopoly is dominating airwaves and screens. And in turn, the corporate-funded mainstream media is selling only candidates whose agendas don’t disrupt commercial fundraising. Donald Trump has turned out to be an ... Full Story
