The big news today is Colorado Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs is being recalled, along with Senator Angela Giron of Pueblo.
Unfortunately I’m *just* outside his district (literally across the street) and will have to settle for agitating my Colorado Springs neighbors against his gun-grabbing nonsense (and other fun activities).
This is probably the most libertarian city/county/state I’ve ever lived in and there’s so many military vets that Pueblo claims to be the “Home of Heroes”. This “libertarian” assertion may seem odd considering the proximity to military bases (I can see the couple dozen or so NORAD radio towers from my house), but this real demographic shift shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone paying attention. I’ve been here less than a year, but I’m inspired by their determination, and have finally acclimated to living over a mile above sea level.
Anyways, where was I? Some douchebag politicians taking away our guns, so let’s take away their power:
A Denver judge on Thursday ruled petitions submitted to oust a pair of Democratic senators from office are valid, a pivotal ruling that sets in motion Colorado’s first-ever recall election of state lawmakers.
“The petitions here substantially comply with law,” Denver District Court Judge Robert Hyatt said in his oral decision from the bench. “Recalls are a fundamental right of Colorado citizens.”
Shortly after Hyatt handed down the decision Thursday, Democratic Gov. John Hickenloopersigned an executive order to have the recall election date of Senate President John Morse, of Colorado Springs, and Sen. Angela Giron, of Pueblo, be held on Sept. 10.
Both are the targets of recalls by constituents for their support of stricter Colorado gun laws implemented this month.
The best part? Their recall efforts were led by a bunch of nobodies that got fed up and initiated their civic duty.
The recall is just over a month away on September 10th: Go get ‘em, Coloradans!
And keep an eye out for this amendment that wipes it’s ass with what’s left of Morse and Giron’s careers.
