The Con

The Con

Dear Friends and Neighbors: Far be it from me to criticize people who want to start a new party to address concerns in our political system. As far as I am concerned, both major parties are too dependent on big money. They have both abandoned basic respect for others in their campaigning. They both have abandoned logic and reason in favor of emotional appeals. They both act as if they hate the other side. What I can’t understand is why the Tea Party should end up supporting the less ... Full Story

Getting to the bottom of 60, 61 and 101

Getting to the bottom of 60, 61 and 101

By Mark Hillman The debate over ballot measures 60, 61 and 101 has been anything but illuminating.  According to the propaganda, voters should: • Vote yes to punish government at all levels for more than $1 billion in higher taxes and fees enacted without a vote of the people by Gov. Ritter and statehouse Democrats. • Or vote no because "The Ugly 3" will trigger a "voter-approved recession" and put thousands of people out of work. Frankly, both of those arguments are overwrought.  ... Full Story

Two Talented Candidates

Two Talented Candidates

To the Editor, Senator Michael Bennet and Congresswoman Betsy Markey are two of the brightest, most dedicated, most thoughtful, and hardest working legislators in Congress today. Both of them are extremely well-qualified, and both have an amazing grasp of the details and implications of the bills they vote on. Bennet and Markey have been in Congress only a short time, but already are known and respected by their colleagues on both sides of the aisle. They are leaders, rather than followers, ... Full Story

Smith is In-Tune to be Sheriff

I have been looking at and listening to the candidates for Larimer County Sheriff. Each represent a different political party, but only one clearly stands out from the other. Justin Smith has nearly 20 years of current experience with our sheriff’s office. Because his experience is current, he is in tune with the current state of law enforcement and the criminal justice field. He has both a bachelor’s and a master’s in criminal justice. Justin Smith has the desire and ability to learn as ... Full Story

Support Senator Kevin Lundberg

Support Senator Kevin Lundberg

Your vote for Senator Kevin Lundberg is a vote for “common sense in government.” Kevin is against tax increases and the current level of government spending.  He knows that individual citizens make better decisions spending their money than bureaucrats. He knows that citizens are taxed enough already, and he supports the proposed initiatives that would cut fees and taxes on income and property, and limit government borrowing. Kevin strongly supports education, families and our ... Full Story
