Comments: A Legislative Effort

RE: the daily Republican press conference - members of the legislature could, in front of the cameras, pass between them photographs of firearms and magazines while pointing out that, had it been a real gun or real magazine instead of a photograph, both would be guilty of a felony and subject to arrest.

I suspect there are a huge number of Coloradans who are just not aware of how draconian the new laws are because, well, the media is just the public relations arm of the Democrat party now, and their incentive is to cover up, or just plain lie about it. For the same reason, when Coloradans start getting arrested and charged with felonies it will never be heard about because the media won't publicize it.

I think your suggestion is brilliant, and doomed to fail for one simple reason: Republicans have been nicknamed The Stupid Party; they were not given that nickname, they earned it.

It's a good suggestion, but far too dangerous to attempt.

As mentioned above, the Republicans are the "stupid party" for one reason; they do not operate as one cohesive unit. The strength of the Demo-rats is that they behave like loyal foot soldiers and rarely go against their leadership. That's how they ram things through.

If the Republicans washed their hands of voting on any upcoming bills, it would be easily spun by the Demo/Media bunch as them standing by and letting the Ass-Party vote without opposition.

Being perceived as unwilling to fight would cost them the next election as frustrated voters would either sit it out or go 3rd party. Not good. Either route would guarantee Demo'crass majorities.

The fatal flaw is entrusting the media, any member of the media to relay the message of the Republicans with seriousness. More likely they'd obfuscate and ignore it.

I've gotten to the point in my life where I'm convinced that the Demon'rat party is nothing more than another form of organized crime.

...And I should know, I've lived and worked in Chicago. :P
