Colorado’s mail voting has been called by many to be the “Gold Standard”. Maybe they mean “fools gold”. There is still limited in person voting. Of course, the mail in ballot is machine counted, mainly on Dominion machines. No chance of fraud there, correct?
Is this why our true blue (wannabe US Senator) Secretary of State is in such a snit? She, of the 200% personnel turnover in two years.
Suspicious minds wonder if the 200% turnover weeded out those people with integrity. Or, is this a telling example of sexual equality? That is, women can be just as incompetent as men in high public office.
Enter the Mesa County debacle.
Seems the horrid crime involved someone posting Dominion voting machine software passwords online. Mesa County is solidly red, and the most populous Western Slope county. Worse, from the (P)regressive’s point of view, it lies in Congressional District 3, the seat currently filled by pistol packing Lauren Boebert who defeated typical GOP several term serving Scott Tipton. A nice guy but he was no real threat to the swamp. Boebert beat Diane Mitsch Bush, a ski town trust fund snot and big Democrat funder. Is the goal to negate Mesa County voters?
All this smoke and mirrors pulls attention away from Denver County, a true voting cesspool, IMO.
I don’t know if O’Neill would say the same thing today. I always thought him to be a decent person. Partisan yes, but believed in the Constitution and rule of law.
An example is my home county. Solidly red, it has a solid blue core within the City of Greeley built around the local university and a core group of LaRaza. The local school district is once again mandating masks for students and faculty despite strong opposition from parents. I expect this fight to get ugly and I hope it does.
Tyranny uses money as a weapon and Colorado’s (P)regressive assholes are trying to sneak another weapon into play. Need a state business license of any kind? If so, expect the state to demand you follow the mask guidelines or lose your license, Further, any business that employs your services will be required to follow the mask mandate. Resist and your business licenses are suspended. At the moment the scheme is being peddled as applying to health care providers. Once implemented at any level, it will mushroom IMO.
The Democrats have always operated under, “Never let a good crisis go to waste”. The Afghanistan mess is so epic it has riveted the country’s attention. With everyone distracted, what evil is being snuck in?
One hope is enough election cleanup in enough states will allow a more honest midterm elections and the House and Senate will flip (not that I trust the GOP to not f**ckup).
As always, YMMV
