Surprise! There’s an election!

Stunning, I know. Have you turned your ballot in yet? Probably not:

In Denver County, 12,476 ballots had been returned by Friday. Another 883 yesterday, and 5,986 today. 311,123 remain outstanding one week before they are due to be in the hands of the Denver Election Commission.

Nothing to vote for you say? Maybe, but there’s something you need to vote against:

This November, voters in Denver will vote on a vague and dangerous ballot initiative, Initiative 300, that would require the local police department to immediately impound the vehicle of anyone driving without a drivers license or registration in their possession.

This is yet another initiative pushed by Jeffco crackpot Daniel Hayes, darling of Peter “Orly Taitz” Boyles and unabashed racist. The law is a blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment. If it passes, it will cost the city millions of dollars to enforce, and then millions of dollars to defend in court when someone’s Constitutional rights are violated by the Denver Police under this initiated ordinance.

These harebrained ideas from fringe lunatics prove what’s wrong with the initiative system. We need to raise the bar. If people want to change the law they should run for office. But in the short term, those of you in Denver need to return your ballots with a NO vote.

    Now’s a good time as any to admit…

    I’m not registered to vote.

    I moved in early October (from one spot in Boulder to another), and forgot to change my address. Now it’s too late. I just have to watch from the sidelines.

    It’ll be the first election in my adult life that I can’t participate in.

    So none of you have to take anything I say seriously ever again. (Middle of the Road already has a head start.)

    Another “Destroy Colorado Springs” idea from the Dougster which would remove payments from the City’s enterprises to the General Fund.  These payments are the 2nd largest (after sales tax) source of revenue for the Springs’ government.

    Most of you throughout the State thought you were rid of this megalomaniac when he got booted out of the legislature.  But we’re still stuck with him.
