Pay Attention: CO Democrats Using Election Process to Enshrine Power

May 2nd, 2013 - 6:38 am

Something is happening in Colorado, and you better pay attention. Colorado Democrats, with the active help of some Republican county election clerks interested in shirking work, have devised a revolutionary plan to remake future Colorado elections.

The plan is simple: ballots are automatically mailed out to every single person on the voter rolls. Ballots are even mailed to people listed as “inactive” voters at their last known address. Ballots are then voted and returned by mail.

No more polling places.

No more voters actually demonstrating an interest in participating in an election. The government will decide that for them, and scatter millions of paper ballots into the U.S. mail.

In 2016, this system will be an invitation to fraud. It will be unmanageable. And it will be a model to pass in other states controlled by Democrats.

Despite the effort of some senators, this proposal will almost certainly become law because the GOP doesn’t have the numbers to stop it. Election-integrity champion and Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler is trying to explain how this proposal will breed fraud, but Democrats don’t care.

This bill is about power, not good government. If it passes, Colorado will likely remain blue for years. Those who doubt that don’t understand how important process is to election outcomes. Cleta Mitchell, an election-law expert, recently spoke to the True the Vote national summit on the topic: ”Process, process, process,” she told the audience.

Process is what the Left cares about, so much so that they are pouring $100,000,000 into the “Democracy Initiative,” a plot to permanently reshape American politics by altering election-process laws.

The conservative and GOP response? Next to nothing. It will probably include more money for radio spots the weekend before an election and more tweets.

The Left understands they can reshape the country on issues of immigration, abortion, taxes, business regulation, defense, terrorism, and health care by reshaping election-process laws. This is why they oppose voter ID, citizenship verification, and purges of dead voters. This is why they propose early voting, welfare agency voter registration, same-day voter registration (which gave us Al Franken), felon voting, and counting illegal aliens for redistricting purposes to subsidize Democrat legislative seats.

When you control election-process rules, your ideas need not appeal to a majority of people to obtain power.

The leftists just recently took over in CO, but now they are taking rapid steps to make sure their control becomes permanent, like in CA, with the same disastrous cosequences. First was the gun grab, now its permanent electin fraud. Any person in CO that values liberty in CO had better wake up, your time is running out. First step would be to turn out of office every state legislator that voted for gun control, and then repeal it. If you can do that soon, you still have a chance for freedom, but if you cant, be prepared for a permanent leftists dictatorship, like in CA, with the resulting adverse consequences.

Why not just mail out the ballots with boxes pre-checked for the "selected" candidates? Then when it some back "Not at this address," they can even count it anyhow?

This vote-by-mail system is favored by all the socialist-leaning states precisely because it allows them to consolidate power. The GOP is the RINO party now, so it's more of a move to actual one-party rule, rather than the current "opposite sides of the same coin" arrangement. This is nothing less than a dismantling of our Republic to permanently establish an oligarchy; a move to implement this nationally is next. It is treason. And it will trigger a full-on civil war.
So all of you who don't have a problem with this power grab, all of you who think you can disarm the freedom-loving gun owners of America, go ahead and try it if you're feelin' froggy enough! Just remember, the law of unintended consequences is quite unforgiving!

Yeesh, Mr. Adams should just cool his jets. We've had vote-by-mail in Oregon for years, and it works just fine. Of course it does remove the opportunity for GOP operatives to assure long voter lines in minority neighborhoods and engage in other desperate measures to hold back the inevitable decline of the crusty-old-delusional-white-guys party.

Yeah, Oregon's Illiberal pols and Oregon 'boasting' in being the nation's junkie-leading state.. yep quite a beacon to be enamored, right John?

Hahaha

BTW, looove the emotionally-led conjecture of the GOP being old White guys party.

Durbin, Franken, Baucus, Leahy, Harkin, Reid, Levin, Menendez.. are these but a handful of Dem Senator's mentioned, 'Young & hip' in your eyes?

Nonetheless, 'thanks' for the 'insightful lesson', John.

Read "The Blueprint," research the Gil Foundation, consider why Comrade Obama's Immaculation was in Denver. Draw some conclusions.

Didn't CO go full-lefty once the CA refugees started emigrating there to get away from the consequences of their politics in their home state?
As I understand it, this process is repeating itself elsewhere in the nation. They ruin their own states, then spread like a cancer into surrounding states. For the last 40 years, I've watched Illinois refugees flee Chicago to live in SE Wisconsin, but mostly NW Indiana. They bring their libtard politics with them and pollute the local politics gene pool.

U.S. Constitution, Article 4, Section 4:

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.

Do not these extremely egregious vote fraud measures provide a prima facie case of removing republican government from the state? If I understand it correctly, couldn't the federal courts overturn these laws as a violation of Article 4, Section 4? I doubt if this clause has ever been used before, but it's there for a reason.

One could also make a strong argument that this is also a baldfaced act of treason, but seeing how the collectivists have already overthrown the Republic from within all three branches, what is needed now is a counter-coup.

Mr. Adams,

This is but ONE of many reasons this Colorado native will not be returning to Rocky Mountain High following my time abroad.

All but 1 member of my entire family are in Colorado and pains me to continue othe majority of our communication via Skype, I can't go back there.

Quite sad. Considering ~ 10 years ago Colorado's then-Republican Governor Bill Owens was considered, 'Governor of the Year' per National Review.

With Illiberal Hickenlooper (in-state tuition for illegals, hundreds of marijuana dispensaries, push for legalization for starters) and the RINO-only GOP'ers - that state is screwed.

It's been Californicated quicker than any state n the union imo.

Is this the time to think about a new party?
No more Democrat/Republican party?

Corruption and fraud are to Democrats what water is to fish. Take these things away and both will quickly die. Democrats know this and do all they can to encourage and protect vote fraud.
