Raise The Bar: Lower Liberty

  • 0 Comments
  • by: Powerful Pear

Colorado voters will will get the opportunity to limit Liberty in the November election. Amendment 71 will alter the method used to change the Colorado Constitution.

Special interest groups have joined forces to make it more difficult for Citizens to address the way Government impacts their life. When you look at the list of supporters, it’s filled with groups that contain the name “Chamber of Commerce”. The next large group of supporters is ” elected officials”.

The beef these groups have with the current method is that it is too easy for “Outside” special interest groups to promote Constitutional changes. It appears they prefer “Inside” special interest groups control this turf. The political class is also miffed that Citizens can bypass the legislative wisdom possessed by the “elites” in the State House.

Supporters also list, what they claim is problematic with the current process. 1. Rural areas are disproportionately impacted because of population density, Denver produces all the necessary ballot signatures for amendments. 2. The State Constitution has too many amendments that sometimes conflict. 3. It only takes a simple majority to pass.

Of course the real reason this is an issue is money. The “Supporters”, or more commonly known as “Special Interest” don’t want to have to spend money to protect the piece of the pie they have carved out for themselves. The harder it is to institute change/reform the better they sleep at night.

Our Constitutional process is just fine. Don’t let the “Special Interest” put one over on you with Amendment 71 and lower the bar for Liberty. Vote “No” on 71.
