As a matter of principle I encourage everyone to vote “no” on any and all Colorado Constitutional Amendments. The sole exception will occur when an amendment arrises making it more difficult to get amendments on the ballot.
Today it is far too easy for individuals or extreme minority groups to hijack the electoral process. For examples, I encourage anyone to actually read the various amendments being proposed along with published coverage of how little support they each have with the electorate. Beyond the obvious political grandstanding these amendments represent, this year there is actually an amendment on setting up an temporary location for government. Are we to believe that our State Legislature is so mired in procedure that we need to pass Constitutional Amendment Q to figure that one out? “I’m sorry Senator. Even thought our building has burned to the ground, we are unable to conduct business in a temporary location because the Colorado Constitution does not give us that power.”
C’mon! What’s next, Amendment R, to address how toilet paper rolls are to be replaced in the State House bathroom’s when they run out? Thank you.
