Participate in the Census

To the Editor: The League of Women Voters encourages everyone to have a voice in government by participating in the 2010 Census.

All the personal information is strictly protected by Federal laws and is not shared with any other governmental agencies. The Constitution requires that a census be taken every ten years. Every person in the 50 states, ... Full Story

This year’s caucuses are coming up quickly!

Dear Editor: This year’s caucuses are coming up quickly!   I plan on attending mine this year to show my strong support for Andrew Romanoff for U.S. Senate.   After following Andrew’s time as Colorado State House Speaker and hearing him speak to a variety of groups, I feel that he is our best choice for U.S. Senate.  Here are just two reasons why. Andrew has pledged to stand up for our interests – not for special interests – and I believe him. The Coloradoan newspaper said of ... Full Story

Speaking out for Andrew Romanoff

This year Democrats are extremely lucky to have a choice of who will be their candidate for U. S. Senate. And they’re extremely lucky to have on the ballot a person of conviction who will stand up for Coloradoans; that person is Andrew Romanoff. Andrew has taken a stand that he will not accept PAC or corporate money in this election. Like many of us, he believes that money corrupts the system. In contrast, Andrew’s opponent is #6 on a list of legislators that have received the most ... Full Story

In Memoriam: Al Haig’s Charge

In Memoriam: Al Haig’s Charge

By Dr. Paul Kengor Editor’s note: This article first appeared at The American Spectator, February 22, 2010. Alexander Haig passed away over the weekend at the age of 85. A military man, a war veteran, no less than a four-star general, a chief of staff to two Republicans presidents (Nixon and Ford), a secretary of state to a third Republican president (Ronald Reagan), and once widely (but wrongly) suspected as the "Deep Throat" Watergate figure who gave the dirty laundry to Woodward and ...

His consistent support over the years for safely developing Colorado’s plentiful energy reserves looks prudent today, when so many enemies of America control oil supplies overseas. Now a state senator, Lundberg continues to work toward energy independence and a cleaner environment, trying to reduce red tape that keeps locally made biodiesel out of Colorado filling ...

The Character of George Washington

The Character of George Washington

By Dr. Gary Scott Smith What made George Washington the most remarkable man of an extraordinary generation? He was not an intellectual giant like Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, or James Madison. Compared with most other founders, he was not well educated (he attended school for only about five years), and, unlike many of them, he disliked abstract philosophical discussions. Washington was intelligent, well informed, and astute, but he was neither a polished writer nor a ... Full Story
