LETTERS: Colorado elections are not golden; the wrong political party | Opinion


Colorado’s elections are not golden

Re: Colorado Election Law Letter being the gold standard. I really don’t see how this can be true when:

1) We have been receiving ballots in the mail for some time now. Who knows how many of them are illegal. 2) When Colorado “residence” can be verified by submitting at least one of 16 different types of verification, including unsecured documents such as a utility bill or bank statement. Secure voter verification is okay, but it looks like anything other than a legal document shouldn’t be allowed. I’m just saying!

From the wrong political party

Since when does a health care provider deny a person seeking health care whether they have a problem? Recently we saw in the news about Candace Owens wanting a “COVID-19 Test” in a lab in Aspen. The lab refused her, in my opinion, because of Owens’ (conservative) political ideology, she is reluctant to receive the vaccine (My Body, My Choice) and she favors former President Donald Trump. What if a “first responder – police, fire department, paramedic or civilian (a Good Samaritan)” were the first to respond to an accident and saw a lady in a “car on fire” and the first responder (the good samaritan) at the scene noticed that the person in danger was Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and the first responder said, “I’m not going to help her, because I don’t care about her politics or her mean behavior, but I’m going to call 911. “So the person watches Nancy get” burned alive, “just before the police and firefighters arrive, berates the Good Samaritan for not helping). Apparently it’s the same ideology of the “Aspen testing lab” we’ve heard of. Still, it’s fitting for the lab to deny Owens the tests she requested for COVID-19, but the Good Samaritan is berated for his inability to help Nancy.

So, I wonder, what if my primary care provider (PCP) sent my blood samples to this “Aspen lab” for COVID-19 testing and the lab says, “They won’t process my blood for them. tests, because, I’m an unaffiliated voter, who voted for Trump. Do I have legal action against the laboratory for not handling my blood to be tested? So, all of us, citizens of our great country, ask the question: Does a health care provider have the right to refuse to provide care to anyone they feel is the wrong political party?

California Rockies

Speaking as a proud libertarian, California native son, I saw the beginning of the end five years ago when San Francisco allowed and authorized the murder of Kate Steinle on Pier14 with their ‘sanctuary city’ policies and their favorite weapon of choice the five times illegally deported.

In order to avoid any association with the creatures that infect this place (and continue to rationalize their complicity to this day), I was reluctantly forced to abandon my friends, family and home and move to Colorado for find the same murderous justification. being in the same way tolerated, tolerated, rationalized and excused under the same pretext of altruistic purpose with the same twist of the hand, the lamentations “Woe to me”, the crocodile tears and the laments of “real tragedy”.

Having recently returned after three months there to renovate my home (previously slated for retirement) for sale and take a hit of $ 75,000 just to get rid of it and get the hell out of the way, Jay Ambrose’s characterization of the problems with the California is not as bad as it describes it. It’s worse! It’s gotten a lot worse over the past five years!

While the homeless once infected only the downtown area, they have moved to the suburbs and beyond and have settled in with all the programs and services now provided at taxpayer expense, so Sacramento now looks like a third world nation.

If you activate them, they will come. Based on everything I’ve seen here over the past five years, unless Colorado makes an immediate 180 degree turn, we’ve got 5 to maybe 10 years at best before Colorado only turns into the California Rockies with the same craziness as the left insider since Governor Jerry Brown first arrived on the scene in the mid-1970s.

Governor Jared Polis reminds me of Brown with the same elitist mantra, aspiring to be enlightened, rosy, and seen as a mantra of moral superiority.

I can only offer you the sternest of warnings before you embrace these closet socialists. Be careful what you want, vote for, tolerate, tolerate, apologize, etc.

Diversity above all

Your leading opinion piece for September 9 is that “As the Statue of Liberty reminds us, the greatness and true genius of this country lies in its diversity. I can’t find any reference to this quote at the Statue. Emma Lazarus didn’t say that. It is an interpretation made by others of what the statue reminds us of.

It is also something that many of us disagree with, putting “diversity” in such an important position. While diversity is revered by many, it lags far behind other reasons for the success and greatness of our country, such as liberty, liberty and the hard work of individuals.

No rush to correct shortages

On August 6, my wife with both COVID-19 injections and 15 years of classroom experience in public schools submitted $ 62.40 ($ 2.40 was the payment processing fee) to the Ministry of Colorado Education for their “One-Year Replacement Authorization” license application.

On August 13, she paid Identigo in Adams County $ 52 for his fingerprint test. As of September 13, no response from either “outfit”. Isn’t the news about the shortage of substitute teachers?

The big picture should be that Colorado is removing all the financial costs to attract substitute teachers.
