February 2020 AC-GOP Chairman’s Blog
Remember typewriters? Charles Weller used a sentence as a typing drill in 1867 that exactly fills a 70-space line - if you add a period. The saying has also been attributed to one of the greatest orators of the earliest days of the United States of America, Patrick Henry - but that one may be the stuff of legend.
"Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the party."
The phrase was also taken up by Pres. Kennedy, who slightly altered its end to be to "...the aid of their country."
Both are true: Now IS the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of the RepublicanParty - AND - by doing so - come to the aid of their country!
Colorado’s Presidential Primary is set for March 3, 2020 (ballots mailed on February 10)
Colorado’s Primary Election is June 30, 2020 (ballots mailed on June 8)
Colorado’s General Election is November 3, 2020 (ballots mailed on October9)
The Democrats consider any elected office win to be a mandate to do whatever is on their (emotional, not rational) wish list - as evidenced by the outrageous policies they passed during the 2019 Dem-controlled Colorado Legislature. Elections have consequences!
We Republicans have learned the hard way that we must VOTE FOR EVERY REPUBLICAN on our ballots, especially here in Colorado, or we will continue to be saddled with the D’s radical agenda - the evidence clear.
If the Dems win, they will continue to implement their long-planned well-funded National scheme to:
…Blow way past the Obama administration’s ruthless attempt to bankrupt the U.S., crush our Constitutional Rights, and keep us in never-ending unwinnable foreign wars.
…Move us ever closer to a bleed-us-dry Socialist economy, along with an increasingly regulated society.
…Give us a Progressive Supreme Court. (How? By adding to the number of Justices, or by removing and replacing Trump appointees - if the Impeachment effort results in President Trump’s removal from office.)
…Continue to politicize the Justice Department (FBI) and Intelligence Services, as part of their strategy to progressively limit the Civil Liberties of any who oppose them (e.g. speech, self-defense, school choice, etc.)
…Weaken the Electoral College, the Senate’s Constitutional duties, and the Bill of Rights.
…Keep pushing for Open Borders - with free everything for illegal aliens - paid for by US taxpayers.
…Continue to undermine our election systems by adopting universal unchecked voting – including by non-citizens, and 16-year olds (who don’t serve in the military, and haven’t been taught civics.)
…Continue to champion environmental policies supported by consensus, rather than proven data – and which affect every aspect of our lives: food, transportation, energy, communication, children, healthcare, you name it… and without addressing the negative consequences…e.g. Colorado SB 20-010 – which allows local governments to ban certain types of plastics (single - or any - use…)
…Continue to ignore the growing intimidation of Antifa - the Progressives’ physical attack force.
…And, I’m sure you have your own examples….
…But President Donald J. Trump has kept his campaign promises, AND he has stopped (at least temporarily) the Dem’s march toward Socialism – while fighting off the constant bashing of the mainstream and online media on him - and on those of us who support him and our Republican principles.
So…if you are one of those folks who thinks Mr. Trump is “not Presidential enough”, kindly remind yourself of the immediate past President’s lecturing, intimidating, preaching - and, above all, his apology tour of the world - wherein he expressed his regret over all past actions of the U.S. …Plus: Benghazi? Pallets of money to Iran? Presidential? Not hardly…his words and actions leaving us at risk, in an increasingly volatile world. C’mon, folks…We should be able to take a bit of crude language and tweeting over the after-effect of all of the above!
…So, please know that if you (or your friends) do not vote for President Donald Trump for a second term - because you do not “care for” his supposed “lack of civility” - it is only because you will have forgotten the lack of civility, disrespect, hypocrisy, outright lying, and the mocking poured on him - and on us - by the Democrats and their servant press, during this past 3 ½ years.
Please also know that if you don’t vote for a Republican candidate because you don’t like him/her, or some of his/her policies, you are not just letting the candidate know your opinion, you are, in effect, casting a vote for an elitist self-serving Dem who will do anything to win - including lie, deceive and raise your taxes - and who will do anything to get - and stay - in power and control. …And NONE of us wants THAT on OUR conscience, do we?
All of the above is a plea to you (YES, YOU) to NOT fall into the Dem’s propaganda trap, and, further, to implore you to NOT leave ANY Republican box blank on your ballot!
If you disagree with what a Republican officeholder says or does, please remember what Ronald Reagan said: “The person who agrees with you 80% of the time is a friend and an ally - not a 20% traitor.”
Please remember that a Republican vote you leave blank is a vote for the Not-Your-Party candidate!
VOTE FOR EVERY REPUBLICAN ON YOUR BALLOT! PERIOD. END OF SENTENCE!
PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ATTEND YOUR CAUCUS ON MARCH 7, 2020!
…AND BRING YOUR RELATIVES, FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS TO WHAT PROMISES TO BE A TERRIFIC AC-GOP LINCOLN DAY DINNER, MARCH 22, 2020!
As always, thank you for all you do, and for agreeing to do all you can to:
Get your friends and neighbors to register and vote Republican - and to support, work for, donate to, and spread the word about PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP and SENATOR CORY GARDNER, and ALL of our great Republican candidates and office-holders!
