Message from The President:

 

 

WILL YOU GO TO THE POLLS IN NOVEMBER IF YOUR CANDIDATE IS NOT THE NOMINEE?

 

93 million eligible voters did not vote in 2012. Of that nationwide number, _______were Republicans.

In Colorado, _______ Republicans did not vote.  And look what we have suffered through with the second Obama term.  Was it apathy or an ‘on principle’ vote against a Mormon?

 

Fast forward to 2016.  What will you do if your candidate is not on the ballot? We cannot by default elect a candidate who will follow in Obama’s footsteps, or worse.

 

Republicans cannot continue to wear blinders in support of only their conservative issue whether it be guns, taxes, social issues, or immigration.  Republicans cannot expect to win without joining hands and resources to overcome the far more dangerous alternative.  What is the ultimate goal? Preserve Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Freedom to choose and to  follow your own destiny.

 

I was reminded of the improbable victory of the USA hockey team in 2008 against the Soviet Union for the Gold Medal.  Hollywood memorialized the achievement in the movie,  Miracle on Ice.  Victory was possible only after Coach Brooks, on the road to the Olympics after a loss to Sweden, called for the players to go to the Blue Line. He then ordered a series of wind sprints and after each, he asked: Who do you play for?  Each would call out his name and school. The wind sprints were repeated followed by Who do you play for? Players were throwing up, Assistant Coaches and Team Physician called for an end.  Coach Brooks continued the repetitions until finally  one player, Mike Eruzione, gave his name and instead of his school said the United States of America. The wind sprints ended. A TEAM WAS BORN.  Mike became the Captain who led the USA to Victory.

 

Republicans can learn from that impossible, improbable victory story.  We cannot afford to splinter.

UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL.

 

 

JUST FOR FUN!

Boulder Radical Women Membership Meeting

 

Honorary President Carolyn Hanson called the meeting to order. Anarchist Pledge “We pledge allegiance to no flag” was recited. We also joined the Wyoming choir supporting Bernie Sanders in singing their song “Bernie is the ONE”.

 

Legislative Report – We support the Boulder ballot issue which will tax sugary drinks. We noted that the taxes will be paid by the manufacturers and distributors of those obesity creating drinks.  We look forward to taxing the Coke Brothers.  We do suggest that 2 cent per ounce tax is probably not enough and should be extended to other sugary products. 

 

We are also suggesting to the city council that driving gas polluting cars in Boulder can be reduced by licensing vehicles to only drive 3 days per week. Those particular days can be noted by the number on license plates. 

 

Campaign Dirty Tricks Committee Report – In conjunction with the Wyoming Radical Women, we have inserted an operative in the Hillary Clinton campaign. Roberta {{ last name redacted for security purposes }} reports that the Clinton campaign will propose to Bernie that he win the presidency nomination, select Hillary for VP and then resign a year into the presidency for “health” reasons. This will consolidate the Democrat Party for the election and allow both candidates to serve as president. 

 

Membership report – It seems that our proposal for members to provide tax returns to calculate membership dues is not viable. Most members refused to provide that information. Accordingly, dues will revert back to the flat fee of $200 per year.

       SYNOPSIS - April 19, 2016 BRW Meeting:

Speaker, Dr. Brian Domitrovic, the CU Visiting Professor of Conservative Thought and Policy.

 

The theme of Brian’s talk was that the ONLY financial model that has ever worked to boost the economy

out of slow growth is to lower taxes, minimize government, and stabilize the dollar by restricting the Fed.

This approach, referred to as supply-side economics or Reaganonimcs, could easily result in sustained

growth of greater than 5%.

Brian reminded us that the United States does economic growth better than any other country ever

in the world. This is our greatest story. Never has there been such mass middle class prosperity as

in this country during our times of growth.

Evidence of this model is in 1920 when taxes were cut from 77%, and resulted in the Roaring ‘20s.

John F Kennedy also introduced a huge tax reduction in 1963, enacted in 1964, that gave us 5.1%

growth from 1964-69. And then again, Reagan lowered taxes in 1982 and 1986 all the way down

to 28%, which led to a huge economic boom throughout the 80s. And lastly, Bill Clinton did the

same in 1994, with similar results. Interestingly, historically these tax cuts were often led by the

Democrats or supported almost unanimously in a bi-partisan vote.

In the Q & A, Dr Domitrovic also gave us a clear example of what happens when taxes are high.

When tax-free municipal bonds were introduced as the first tax loop-hoe, anytime taxes

increased, investment in muni bonds increased. In 1920, when the highest tax rate was 77%,

JD Rockefeller had more money invested in municipal bonds than in Standard Oil.  In reality,

when taxes are high, wealthy people take their money out of the private sector where it fuels growth.

Brian was also asked about how to restrain the Fed. He explained that when taxes are cut, there

is great demand for the dollar. This moves money from gold back to dollars. When the price of

gold is lowered and stable, he believes the US should go back on the Gold Standard.

Brian is the author of 2 books, Econoclasts: The Rebels Who Sparked the Supply-Side Revolution

and Restored American Prosperity published in 2009 and JFK and the Reagan Revolution: A Secret

History of American Prosperity co-written with Larry Kudlow and coming out in the September 2016.

AMERICA THE EXCEPTIONAL

Excerpts from

An Aussie’s Love Letter, by Nick Adams/ Centennial Review March 2015

 

STRIVING FOR GREATNESS

            In 5,000 years of recorded human history, there has been no nation even resembling the United States.  The American model has offered and continues to offer, a greater chance for dignity, hope, and happiness for more people than any other system.

            As  Margaret Thatcher, the former British prime minister, put it:  “Europe was created by history, America was created by philosophy”.  Lady Thatcher was right.  This philosophy is one of individual liberty, free market opportunity, and belief that it’s all a gift from God.

            America is the best idea the world has ever had, the greatest value system ever devised.  What are these values that make America exceptional?  Individualism, not collectivism, Patriotism, not relativism, Optimism, not pessimism, Limited government, not the nanny state, God, not Caesar, Faith, not secularism,

 E Pluribus Unum, not multiculturalism, Life, not death, Equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome,  Goodness, not moral equivalence.  America is about being Bold, not bland, Brave, not meek, Striving for Greatness, not mediocrity. Tellingly, all of these values are aligned with what’s called today a conservative outlook.

            America rewards success without government approvals and bureaucratic interference.  It embraces religious faith, aspiration, and risk.  As a result, the people of America have been the most enterprising, market-oriented, individualistic, and averse to taxation and regulation that have ever walked the earth.

But daily we are dealing with The Onslaught from the Left:  They have created an economically unsustainable and character-destroying welfare state, they have undermined Western military strength, politicized universities and the arts, authored the culture of complaint and its close cousin, the self-esteem movement until today we are less free, poorer, weaker, less innovative, less confident, and less family oriented more divided and more faithless.

It’s past time we Relearn the American Trinity!

VIRTUE, FAITH AND LIBERTY!

            America is therefore in the fight of its life.  Individualism, patriotism, and liberty – the unique properties of American life and culture- are at diminished levels, beleaguered by the anti-American virus prevalent in schools, and universities, entertainment media, and the arts.

                                                                                    -2-

            Saving America requires bringing intellectual ammunition to the battle of ideas.  Too many people have forgotten or never learned what makes America exceptional – and you cannot advocate what you cannot articulate. Reason and faith are the two wings by which the American eagle took flight.  The arithmetic of the American trinity is simple: Virtue cannot be sustained in the absence of Faith, and if virtue is absent, then Liberty must be as well.  Yet new generations of Americans are unable to write out the formula, let alone balance the equation.

            Nothing is more anti-American, anti-freedom, anti-truth, and anti-reality than political correctness.  It is a noose around America’s neck, growing tighter each day.  From identity politics and secularism to the all-powerful welfare state and the war against national identity, every problem in America today is compounded by this suffocating regime of thought control. Unless plain speaking is allowed, clear thinking is denied.  Recognize that the unfettered American dream and the regimented politically correct mindset cannot coexist.

            The words of Thomas Paine in 1776 resonate with Americans today:

            “These are the times that try men’s souls.  The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in  this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.”

           

What does America have to do to come back in these trying times of our own?  How do we win this fight?  How do we vanquish the forces besetting us and restore American glory? We do it, I believe, as Americans always have: through liberty, good constitutionally-limited government, free enterprise, and traditional Judeo-Christian values.  Who can vindicate American Exceptionalism?...  Patriotic citizens with traditional values.  People just like us!

“To whom much is given, much is required,” said Jesus.  Ponder that, my friends.  You have been bequeathed the high responsibility of continuing to support and export the greatest value system ever devised.  STAY THE COURSE, AMERICA!

Fracking Brings Lower Heating Bills This Winter 


CRED_02WeeklyGraphic-Groundhog_SL_TW1024x5121.png

 

Tuesday was Groundhog Day, and Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow.

Regardless of whether Spring comes early or not, fracking will keep you warm for the rest of winter—and you won’t have to spend an arm and a leg on your heating bills.

The large amount of oil and natural gas production in Colorado has created an abundant supply of energy, leading to lower prices for residents. That’s why Colorado’s 2015 energy bills were the lowest in the nation, averaging $224 a month.

President Obama believes he can stop terrorists by taking away your 2nd Amendment rights. Let's review his logic: stop bad people with guns by taking away the guns of good people?As Mark Steyn recently said, liberals only want two groups to have guns: police and terrorists.

Tell the President: Leave My 2nd Amendment Rights Alone!

The right to protect yourself against tyranny and threat is a God-Given right.Earlier this year, liberals even tried to take away my right to bear arms. I fought them and I won.Stand with me in telling the President NO to taking away our 2nd Amendment rights!
