Emergency is Over, Let the Campaign Begin!
Congratulations to the Colorado governor for finally recognizing that the pandemic emergency is over! Late last week he declared it so on a Colorado Public Radio interview, which was widely reported nationwide. Finally the governor is admitting the emergency, with which he claimed legal authority to issue nearly 450 executive orders over the past 20 months, has passed …but did he really mean it?

On November 2, 2021 in a field near the Larimer County Health Department about 2,000 citizens gathered to protest the mandates from the health department. Many asked the director of the department to step down, not only because of the mandates, but also because of his chilling request to other Larimer County officials to remove a truck trailer with the words “Resist the Fascists” painted on its side. The trailer was on the private property where the protest was held.

I spoke briefly at the rally, when the snow was flying!

Following the rally four state legislators who represent parts of Larimer County sent a letter to the county commissioners asking that the director be removed from his position.

The letter reads:



November 1, 2021

Larimer County Commissioners:

By now, you’ve certainly seen the email from Tom Gonzales, the County’s Public Health Director. And I trust you’ve seen the legitimate debate that has ensued.

“It is clear that Mr. Gonzales attempted to use his government connections to quash the free speech rights of a local citizen. He clearly doesn’t understand the Constitutional limits that are placed on the government in order to protect the Natural Rights of the Citizens.

It is clear that Mr. Gonzales asked you to compromise your oath of office in order to bend the rules to remove the message on the trailer.

It is clear that Mr. Gonzales is unsuited for this office if he is so intimidated by the peaceful free speech of a private citizen.

The undersigned members of the Colorado General Assembly urge the County Commissioners to direct the Board of Health to immediately terminate Tom Gonzales as the Public Health Director. Larimer County deserves a thoughtful Director of Public Health that understands that the Rights of the Citizens do not end when his feelings are offended.

Senator Rob Woodward                     Minority Leader Hugh McKean

Senator Barb Kirkmeyer                     Representative Mike Lynch






The people of Larimer County have spoken loudly and clearly. It is now time for the county officials to take notice and follow the the will of We the People. It is time for We the People to continue to “…peaceably… assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Larimer Public Health Director Gets Lesson on First Amendment.

The director of Public Health in Larimer County was caught on the county's email system, which is available for all of the public to see, asking other county officials to get rid of a trailer, parked on private ground, with the slogan "Resist the Fascists." Here is the actual email:

Recognize Natural Immunity
The Public Health Director for Larimer County, Tom Gonzales, recently wrote an opinion column on COVID-19. His information on the impact the Delta variant has had on the current spread of the disease in the county is valid data which we all must consider. However, I have strong reservations with his solution, which is calling for “near universal vaccination.” This policy fails to consider all of the evidence and looks more like a commercial for the CDC’s tired and not-so-true l

We Do Not Need a 75% Majority Vote to Follow the Constitution
A century ago American humorist Will Rogers observed, it's not our ignorance that gets us into trouble as much as the things we are so sure of that just are not so. That certainly applies to today's political pundits-- and I mean Republican and Democrat, progressive and conservative.

Take, for example, the conventional wisdom about Colorado's unaffiliated voters, who are often called "Independents.

A century ago American humorist Will Rogers observed, it’s not our ignorance that gets us into trouble as much as the things we are so sure of that just are not so. That certainly applies to today’s political pundits– and I mean Republican and Democrat, progressive and conservative.

Take, for example, the conventional wisdom about Colorado’s unaffiliated voters, who are often called “Independents.” Yet, academic research has revealed that over 80% of unaffiliated voters lean Left or Right and vote consistently either Democrat or Republican. Less than 20% of unaffiliated voters approach genuine “independence,” conscientiously voting for who they consider the best candidate regardless of party.

Pandemic Panic or Natural Immunity

As the the more contagious Delta Variant of COVID has increased, the President imposed a new mask mandate on all Federal workers and facilities and he has not ruled out more broad sweeping mandates. Never-mind the fact that such general mandates are not within his jurisdictional authority, or the authority of Congress (see Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution and the Tenth Amendment).

Federalism: Preserving the Blessings of Freedom and Prosperity

Recently, our nation has been challenged with several issues that have rocked the foundations of our culture.

The pandemic, cancel culture and election uncertainties have tested our nation’s ability to negotiate through these troubling times. While the future continues to be murky, our nation has demonstrated a resiliency against these threats to our freedoms which can only be understood through the system of government we call federalism.

$90 Million for an Interim Study Committee?
HB-1325, introduced late last week, sets up a legislative committee to study the school finance act. I am familiar with government overkill, but this one goes way over the top. Sure, the governor thinks it is nothing to create a lottery to give away $5 million in a lottery for vaccines, but this bill even tops that for government waste of taxpayer dollars. This bill sets up an interim committee

Read More HB-1325, introduced late last week, sets up a legislative committee to study the school finance act. I am familiar with government overkill, but this one goes way over the top. Sure, the governor thinks it is nothing to create a lottery to give away $5 million in a lottery for vaccines, but this bill even tops that for government waste of taxpayer dollars. This bill sets up an interim committee 
to study school finance and it authorizes the committee to spend $90 million dollars from the education fund. I couldn’t believe it when I first read it, but on page six of the latest version of the bill,  it says spend $90 Million for the study.

This has to be the best example of what’s wrong with school finance in Colorado. Hang on to your pocket book as this bill is already through the House and heading to the Senate. And you can bet the answer will be that you and I are not paying enough taxes…

Now is the Time to Contact the Redistricting Commissions
In this year of redistricting there is a new system in place to draw the new districts for the legislature and the Congressional districts through appointed commissions. And, to further complicate the situation, the Census data will not even be ready until sometime in the fall. The final lines for the new districts will not be known until very late in the year, just weeks before the 2022 election season begins.

Read More In this year of redistricting there is a new system in place to draw the new districts for the legislature and the Congressional districts through appointed commissions. And, to further complicate the situation, the Census data will not even be ready until sometime in the fall. The final lines for the new districts will not be known until very late in the year, just weeks before the 2022 election season begins.

Right now you can give your opinion to the commissions (one for state districts and one for the federal districts). We need conservative voices in the process. Click here (https://redistricting.colorado.gov/public_comments/new) to let your voice be heard. Of particular concern for Larimer County is to keep as many of our state legislative districts exclusive to Larimer County. If the state legislative district commission divides the house and/or senate districts between Larimer and Boulder counties it will divide those districts between two very different communities of interest. That could result in even further reducing conservative voices at the Capitol. 

For those in other parts of the state this same argument needs to be made, as is appropriate for your area. In any event, please engage in this process and tell them what you think!
