The difference between the Adams County Republicans and the Adams County Democrats:
“We want to control our own life, not yours”
“We support every individual choice that does not take away someone else’s choice”.
“Freedom and Liberty vs. Control”
It’s an easy decision for us….
Does it matter which political party controls Congress come 2015?
Turn on any news program covering the mid-term election and you’ll get a steady stream of “horse-race” reports: which candidates are up, which are down, how many seats are leaning Democrat or now safely in the hands of the GOP. Pollster after pollster will eagerly tell you how many Senate seats each party will end up with — then revise those numbers day after day — right up until the polls close on Nov. 4.
Granted, the non-stop prognosticating makes for good graphics on TV – maps lighting up blue and red, Republican strategist Karl Rove’s white board showing numbers and percentages scribbled across it. But how often have you heard a discussion as to what difference it will actually make if the GOP wins control of the Senate or, for that matter, if the Democrats manage to hold on to it?
It’s a question Republicans should be prepared to answer if they do win in November — especially if they hope to be victorious again in 2016.
Polls show voters are no more enamored with the Republican brand than the Democrat one. The most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal surveyshows only 46% of likely voters prefer a GOP-held Congress, with 44% preferring a Democratic-controlled one.
Rather than lay out a particular vision of how life in America will be better if voters put its candidates in office, the GOP seems more to be counting on the fact that voters are unhappy with President Obama. Only 42% of respondents in the latest NBC/WSJ survey say they approved of the job he is doing.
And that is why many Democrats, including those running for office this year, must have shaken their heads when the president recently went out of his way to say that, while he is not on the ballot, his policies are. To many voters, Obama and his policies are one in the same, and the GOP has been bending every effort to try to nationalize the election and make it a referendum on Obama.
But if you take Obama out of the equation, what’s left? →']);" class="more-link">Continue reading
This documentary reveals the truth behind the “Gang of Four” – a secretive group of Leftist millionaires and billionaires who hijacked Colorado politics. The result was a restructuring of the once-reliable Red state. Now, homelessness is at an all-time high, marijuana is smoked in once family-friendly parks, gun control is rampant and the state’s energy industry is under constant assault. Unfortunately, the State of Colorado is now a perfect example of President Obama’s promise to “fundamentally transform America.”

Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory (R-Opelousas) explains why he recently switched from the Democrat Party to the Republican Party. He discusses the history of the Republican Party, founded as an Abolitionist Movement in 1854. Guillory talks about how the welfare state is only a mechanism for politicians to control the black community.
An Adams County resident (a registered Democrat who is open-minded and looks at qualifications) sent the following email to me:
“Brigitte Grimm is worth re-electing. Being Treasurer in a big County we need a person who can run the office and Brigitte Grimm has proven that she can. Brigitte is passionate about what she does and helping people. She took over an office in disarray due to horrible management by the previous, terribly unqualified Treasurer, and has implemented many changes that have improved efficiency, customer service as well as employee morale. I assure you we do not want to get into the situation of Dems voting straight party line and putting another unqualified individual into an office that has control over how County money is invested. Before you vote, do your research on the candidates as well as what each office is responsible for. I know the Treasurer has received a lot of grief over things like the storm water tax. What most people don’t understand is that the treasurer doesn’t make up these taxes, only collects what they are told to collect.”
Thank you for the vote of confidence!
This year is arguably one of the most critical elections at virtually every level of government we have seen in a very long time. At the county level, an expansion of the Board of County Commissioners and the occupants of those new seats are going to be critical to the county’s future. Residents need to ensure the people they vote for will continue the much-needed reforms that have been started.
County Commissioner District 3
Incumbent Erik Hansen was first elected four years ago and came in with a plan to clean up the corruption that had permeated county government. That plan has shined a light on the dark corners of the government center in Brighton and resulted in increased accountability, streamlined and improved services, and help put the county back on the path of credibility. His has often been the lone voice of reason on the board as he fights an uphill battle against the other two members. The Aurora Sentinel said Hansen is, “the best thing to happen to the Adams County commission in decades.” That is high praise coming from a left-leaning paper and it recognizes Hansen’s good stewardship of the county.
On the other side you have Manny Solano, local lawyer, and far left activist. Solano is the husband of former state representative and current state senate candidate Judy Solano. Both are well-known for their support of causes and candidates outside the mainstream. Manny acted as the defense attorney for Heath Russo, a man charged with 33 felony counts for his role in the Quality Paving scandal. Clearly, as Adams County tries to get itself back on the right path, the last thing we need is someone who apparently thinks those who ripped off taxpayers for millions of dollars did nothing wrong. Solano has virtually no support from anyone of note and for good reason. A vote for him would be a tremendous step back and essentially hand a seat back to those who spent decades fleecing and damaging the county.
If ever there was a no brainer when it comes to making a choice in an election, this is it. Vote for Erik Hansen.
County Commissioner District 4
One of two new seats on the board that was created when voters agreed to expand the number of members to five, Joseph Domenico faces off against Steve O’Dorisio.
O’Dorisio worked as a prosecutor in the Adams County DA’s office, one of the many county offices that has seen more than its fair share of troubles. With strong ties to the old Adams Family that brought many of the scandals that have embarrassed the county, it is hard to see how this is a man that would work toward restoring the public trust.
The name Domenico is one you may recognize as there is a good chance your family has enjoyed food on your table provided by his family run farm. If ever there was a salt-of-the-earth candidate in Adams County, Joseph Domenico is it. He knows what it takes to run a successful small business and more importantly he sees all that is wrong in the county. The county needs reform-minded candidates like Domenico.
Vote for Joe Domenico.
County Commissioner District 5
Jan Pawlowski and Wilma Rose are vying to take this second new seat on the board of commissioners. Both are names that many residents will like recognize.
Rose is a longtime resident and served on Brighton City Council until this past January. Rose’s campaign managerpenned a letter leading up to the primary saying she was a “lifelong Democrat and loyal Adams County Democrat who will work hard to contact as many Democrats in Adams County.” Clearly a partisan message and one that seems to leave the remaining 65% of Adams County voters out in the cold. Maybe she should try to be loyal to Adams County and all of its residents.
Pawlowski is the former mayor of Brighton and as such would certainly appear to be quite in tune with the needs of her constituents. She recognizes the folly of the stormwater tax and says she wants to continue pushing the reforms that are needed to restore residents’ faith in county government.
I will be coloring in the bubble for Jan Pawlowski.
Democrats, like Joe Salazar, say voter fraud doesn’t exist. How naive are you, Joe?

DENVER—The Colorado Division of Insurance announced Friday a surge in health-care policy cancellations in the wake of Obamacare, just what Democratic candidates in high-profile races didn’t need less than three weeks before Election Day.
In a letter to state Senate Republicans, Colorado insurance commissioner Marguerite Salazar said that more than 22,000 Coloradans received cancellation notices in the last month, and that 192,942 Coloradans will lose their policies at the end of 2015.
That would bring the total number of cancellations in Colorado to more than 550,000 by the time the Affordable Care Act has been fully implemented and non-compliant plans have been phased out. Ten Colorado carriers have opted to continue offering non-compliant plans through 2015, Ms. Salazar said.
The report fueled a fresh barrage of Republican attacks against vulnerable Democrats, starting with Gov. John Hickenlooper and Sen. Mark Udall, both of whom are locked in tight reelection fights. Republican Rep. Cory Gardner issued a statement Friday blasting Mr. Udall’s continued support for Obamacare.
“Coloradans continue to pay the price for Senator Udall’s broken promise,” said Mr. Gardner, who’s challenging the Democratic incumbent. “It’s unfortunate Senator Udall has been so eager to please President Obama that he has forgotten thousands of Coloradans across our state.”
Mr. Udall has previously noted that the vast majority of those receiving cancellation notices have been offered new policies, although critics argue they’re not the same. →']);" class="more-link">Continue reading
