At the presidential debate tonight in Denver, Mitt Romney is a strong challenger to President Barack Obama. Romney’s post on facebook at about 8:30 a.m. today garnered hundreds of “likes” in just a few minutes. What he says rings true to lots of people.
Romney said, “Under President Obama, 196,688 new people are on food stamps in Colorado. We shouldn’t measure compassion by how many people are on welfare or receiving food stamps. We should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off and get a good paying job.”
If Obama uses the same old, same old recycled rhetoric tonight, Americans should see it for what it is. It’s a broken record. Continue reading
Muriel Taylor has deep reasons for voting for Mitt Romney for president. Taylor was in a group of women supporting Romney when I asked them for reasons for their support. Taylor wrote down her reasons, which resonated strongly with me.
Taylor said, “I am voting for Mitt Romney because I love my country. I believe the freedom that I cherish is being eroded by the ever encroaching arm of the federal government. It has become a giant octopus with tentacles that search for every way possible to feed itself off the labors of the people and to crush the life out of them by all its rules and regulations.”
This rang true with President Barack Obama’s whacks at religious freedom and increasing regulations on small businesses. These have got to stop.
Taylor continued by saying, “The staggering national debt is just one of the many things that is wrong with the present administration. Our country is in serious danger if we do not make a change in the upcoming election. I am amazed at the class warfare that is going on because Romney is a successful businessman. I can’t ever remember success being an issue. I was under the assumption that is what we want in a leader. He is someone who has had the experience and has proven himself quite able in fiscal responsibility, which he did when he was governor of Massachusetts.” Continue reading

Voters, remember this “crap” as CNN’s Jack Cafferty called the lack of openness and honesty in the Democrat-controlled Obamacare legislative process. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “There’s never been a more honest, more open process for any legislation” than with Obamacare.
Pelosi and all Democrats who participated need to know the real definition of words. America deserves better. It’s time for Ken Buck and Cory Gardner to replace Democrats Michael Bennet, the Colorado rubber-stamping senator of President Obama’s agenda, and Betsy Markey, from Colorado’s 4th Congressional District who voted against her constituents to side with Obama.

A little girl baby I know was born at 28 weeks a few years ago. Difficulties with that pregnancy started labor that could be stopped. She was only 2 pounds 14 ounces at birth and with a will to live. She left the hospital 3 months later perfectly healthy and is still healthy and one of the brightest students in her class.
Was there a time this baby wasn’t a person? No. She was always human and always a person. She needed protecting and deserved birth unless a natural miscarriage removed her from the nurturing environment of the womb.
It makes sense to put that protection in the Constitution of the State of Colorado, which is what Amendment 62 would do. By this amendment, “the term ‘person’ shall apply to every human being from the beginning of that biological development of that human being.”
