MESSAGE FROM CFRW PRESIDENT, DULANY WOODWARD 3/15/15
 

There is such a schism in our country on every level; politically, racially, economically, religiously and morally, and the rhetoric we hear daily becomes more virulent and demeaning--it does not inform, educate or seek to build paths to understanding, only to destroy so much of what we love and hold dear in this country.

 

Our party can build a protection from those without by speaking from strength and clear principles, but we must not let the little foxes of dissent from within become so loud they drown out our quiet confidence and knowledge of our purpose.  Most institutions crumble from seeds sown of doubt, discontent, jealousy, and false rumors--rarely from frontal assaults from the outside known enemies.  This is what Republicans must guard against because it plays into the hands of those who wish our ideals to fail.  They wish to wrench power into their hands whose houses are not built on the rock of our founding principles, but the shifting sands of expedience, false promises and passing fads.

 

Today more than ever, with the world crumbling around us, we need a united voice.

 

I have asked the leaders of my Federation to hold high our standard of morality and honorable behavior in the face of all who would tear them down or bring us to their level of discourse and to maintain civility in the face of rancor. 

 

Many times it is the strength and courage of women that have led the way to peace and true understanding, and today the women of CFRW are part of that leadership and march to a renewed strengthening of our country's resolve.

 

I invite all Republican women to come join us in this mission.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - MARCH 2015

 

 

“Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society.  As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to it being done at all.  We disapprove of state education.  Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education.  We object to a state religion.  Then the socialists say that we want to religion at all.  We object to state-enforced equality.  Then they say that we are against equality.  And so on, and so on.  It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we don’t want the state to raise grain.”

Frederic Bastiat

   “The Law”

 

This is not just an abstract idea; it is evident today in every newspaper and liberal publications.  The government wants to support/“invest in”/or reward renewable energy producers.  We believe in the private sector developing those renewables through free market competition.  We are accused of being in the pockets of big oil and coal, and not caring about the environment.   We do not want federal standards for curriculum and content in K-12 education.  We approve of local control and school choice and vouchers.  We are characterized, as Bastiat said, of being anti-education.

 

For every problem that may arise in the normal course of living, there will surely be devised a federal or state-controlled program to deal with it.  A child is bullied at school:  The government comes up with an anti-bullying program.  The parents are bypassed in therms of the guidance and education and values of their children, the State arrogates that responsibility to itself regardless of the opposition by citizens.  The same process has already occurred with sex education in the public schools, often beginning  in the first grade, over the strenuous objections of parents.

 

As conservatives, we must constantly be aware of this knee-jerk proclivity of liberals (“there oughtta be a law!”) and never fail to identify and argue this point at every opportunity with our progressive friends or opponents.  This snowball has been rolling downhill and gathering speed for y years.  We know that spring is coming and will melt Boulder’s snow eventually and naturally, but it’s up to us to melt the liberal regulatory avalanche of snowballs with diligence and determination.

WHO'S UNHAPPY? WHO'S UNLUCKY? WHO'S GOT NOTHING?

Re: “Email issue revives old questions about Clintons,” March 4 news story.


It seems that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was conducting her State Department business by a personal e-mail account rather than through a secure State Department account.

Just below your article about Clinton’s e-mails was one that announced that former CIA director David Petraeus had agreed to plead guilty for mishandling classified material.

Since it is clear that the secretary of state would be privy to and would handle classified material and material vital to the security of the United States, it would have been through this general e-mail account. Will we be seeing an investigation of this?

AMERICANISM

Our Roots, Our Republic, Our Responsibilities

PATRIOTIC STATEMENTS & SPEECHES

 

John Quincy Adams served as our nation’s 6th president.  President Adams gave an address wherein he compared the two “most joyous and most venerated” holidays celebrated each year in America…..

 

“Why is it that, next to the birthday of the Savior of the world, you’re most joyous and venerated festival returns on July 4th?  Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birthday of the Savior?  That it forms a leading event in the progress of the Gospel dispensation?  Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth?  That it laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity?”

 John Quincy Adams, Independence Day Speech, July 4, 1837

 

“To those who cite the First Amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions everyday; I say: The First Amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny.”

   President Ronald Reagan

 

“Now more than ever the people are responsible for the character of their Congress.  If that body be ignorant, reckless, and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness, and corruption.  If it be intelligent, brave, and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities to represent them in the national legislature…If the next centennial does not find us a great nation…it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture, and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces.”

 James A. Garfield (1831-1881), US President, Minister of the Gospel

 

“In questions of power; let no more be heard of confidence in man but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

 Thomas Jefferson

 

“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

Benjamin Franklin

 

“Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have…The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases.”

 Thomas Jefferson

 

In 1787, George Mason of Virginia asked rhetorically, while arguing for the adoption of the Bill of Rights.  “Who is the militia?”  Mason’s answer:  “They are the whole people.”

 George Mason, framer of the Constitution and author of the Virginia Bill of Rights

2015 - Week 11
March 23, 2015
As always, thanks to our volunteers!

The bi-partisan race to the bottom of free market intervention and big government central planning continues. At least this week we did find some bills that rated a “support” this week.

HB 15-1065Regulatory Reform Act of 2015Support

This bill was run last year with bi-partisan sponsors. This year, there doesn’t appear to any bi-partisanship on the prime sponsors. Businesses, and especially small businesses that don’t have massive legal and administrative resources to keep up with the expanding rule by regulatory fiat, may not necessarily know when new rules have been created by various regulatory state departments. This bill says that for the first minor violation of a new rule (less than a year old) by a business of 100 or fewer employees, a state agency is required to issue a written warning and engage the business in educational outreach as to the methods of complying with the new rule instead of levying fines. Our only complaint on this bill is that it’s only for businesses of less than 100 people.

This legislation supports the principles of:

Limited Government

 

HB 15-1165Schools Use of American Indian MascotsOppose

This bill creates the Subcommittee for the Consideration of the Use of American Indian Mascots by Public Schools in the Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs in the Office of the Lieutenant Governor. The subcommittee is required to meet at least every two months to evaluate the use of American Indian mascots by public schools and public institutions of higher education, and approve or disapprove of such uses. The American Indian Mascot Fund is created in the State Treasury to give grants to schools that have to get new uniforms, etc. due to the commission disallowing their current mascot. The state constitution delegates the execution of education to the local districts. We think that the local community leaders should be capable of making appropriate decisions such as the school mascot without a new government program to enforce its version of political correctness.

This legislation opposes the principles of:

Limited Government

 

HB 15-1230Innovative Industries Workforce Development ProgramOppose

This bill creates the Innovative Industries Workforce Development Program in the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, cooperatively administered by the Colorado Workforce Development Council and the Division of Employment and Training. The program reimburses employers with high-level internships and apprenticeships in an “innovative” industry for up to $5,000 in expenses per intern. An employer may be reimbursed for up to 10 interns. The CWDC provides technical assistance, promotes the program, and prioritizes applications if there are more internships than available funding. Taxpayer cost is over $600,000/year. So you, dear taxpayer, get to foot the bill for someone else’s interns. This is part of the bi-partisan race to the bottom of government meddling in the free market. But hey, it’s “innovative”, so it must be a great idea, right?

This legislation opposes the principles of:

Free Markets

Limited Government

Fiscal Responsibility

 

HB 15-1235Retirement Security Task ForceOppose

This bill creates the Colorado retirement security task force to study, assess, and report on the factors that affect Coloradans' ability to save for a financially secure retirement and on the feasibility of creating a retirement savings plan for private sector employees. The task force is required to submit 2 reports to the general assembly regarding the factors that affect Coloradans' ability to save for a financially secure retirement and on the feasibility of creating a retirement savings plan for private sector employees. Because social security is so awesome, we should see if we can duplicate the program at the state level, right? (Wrong).

This legislation opposes the principles of:

Personal Responsibility

Free Markets

Limited Government

 

HB 15-1250Performance Based Regulation of Investor Owned UtilitiesOppose

This bill declares that certain factors other than just purely economic ones deserve to be considered in establishing the rates and policies of investor-owned public utilities. Because, you know, those free market concepts of price signaling (a measure of supply/demand), profit (a measure of value produced), etc. are so incomplete. What the statists prefer to force businesses to consider are those all-important intangibles such as long-term economic sustainability (because businesses don’t understand that economic sustainability requires more than just profit), efficiency (because government is soooo efficient, and business needs the wise regulation of government on how to be efficient), the resiliency and diversity of energy generation resources (clearly much more important than those silly economic factors), environmental factors including water consumption and carbon emissions, etc. I guess investor-owned will soon mean never having to say you’re sorry for making a profit, which of course, will be the end of any investor wanting to own any company in this industry.

This legislation opposes the principles of:

Free Markets

Limited Government

Fiscal Responsibility

 

HB 15-1268Creates CO9to25 Youth Development CouncilOppose

This bill is the most vague bill we’ve seen in a while. This bill creates the CO9To25 Youth Development Council in the Department of Human Services. The council will develop and implement a comprehensive system of youth and young adult development services. The council will also identify best practices for prevention, intervention, and treatment services related to youths and young adults ages 9 to 25. There you have it: a comprehensive system, based on best practices, of youth and young adult development services. Clear enough for you? Because parents are so passé these days, it takes a state to develop youth and young adults.

This legislation opposes the principles of:

Personal Responsibility

Limited Government

Fiscal Responsibility

 

HB 15-1278Agricultural Water Rights for MarijuanaSupport

This bill specifies that using a water right that has been decreed for agricultural irrigation purposes for the cultivation of marijuana at a retail or medical marijuana cultivation facility is not a change of a water right if the use of the water is required for the cultivation of marijuana as contemplated or required by the facility's license. In other words, if the water right is for agricultural use, then that applies to marijuana cultivation.

This legislation supports the principles of:

Property Rights

Free Markets

 

HB 15-1281Congenital Heart Defect Screening via Pulse OximetryOppose

This bill requires all newborns born in a birthing center to be screened for congenital health defects using pulse oximetry prior to the infant leaving the health facility. Because without the state to pass laws mandating proper medical care/procedures, those silly doctors delivering hundreds of babies would just have no clue as to the best practices for the health of their patients.

This legislation opposes the principles of:

Free Markets

Limited Government

 

SB 15-200Consumer Protections in Student Lending for Education LoansOppose

This bill places restrictions on private lenders who offer education loans. The bill prohibits a lender from providing gifts to an institution of higher education, engaging in revenue sharing in exchange for any advantage in securing loans, or imposing a fee or penalty on the borrower for early repayment or prepayment of the loan. Because the state must dictate allowable business relationships and the terms of private contracts.

This legislation opposes the principles of:

Personal Responsibility

Free Markets

Limited Government

 

SB 15-203Debt Management Service Providers Regulation by AGOppose

This bill increases existing regulation on debt management service providers by limiting settlement fees to no more than 15% of the amount saved as a result of the settlement, and requiring that the debtor has made all required payments on the debt to which the fees apply before the provider can receive their fees. More regulatory expansion and intervention in the free market.

This legislation opposes the principles of:

Personal Responsibility

Free Markets

Limited Government

 

SB 15-218Police Misrepresentation DisclosureSupport

This bill says that when a Colorado law enforcement agency looks to hire a peace officer, the peace officer’s prior employing state or local law enforcement agency must disclose any information indicating whether the peace officer's employment history included any instances in which he knowingly made a misrepresentation in any testimony or affidavit relating to the arrest or prosecution of a person, or to a civil case pertaining to the peace officer, or to the peace officer's employment history, or during the course of any internal investigation by a law enforcement agency, which investigation is related to the peace officer's alleged criminal conduct, official misconduct, or use of excessive force. That’s a mouthful, but basically, if there are some credibility issues, the new hiring agency should be made aware of it.

This legislation supports the principles of:

Personal Responsibility

Limited Government (Transparency)

 

SB 15-219Police Shooting TransparencySupport

The bill requires law enforcement agencies to develop protocols for the investigation of a peace officer-involved shooting. The law enforcement agency shall post the protocols on its web site or make it publicly available if it does not have a web site. The bill also requires a district attorney who declines to file criminal charges against a peace officer for a peace officer-involved shooting to make a report and publicly disclose the report explaining the basis for not charging the officer. The district attorney must post the report on its web site or make it publicly available if it does not have a web site.

This legislation supports the principles of:

Personal Responsibility

Limited Government (Transparency)

NEWS FROM CRED (Coloradans for Responsible Energy)

 
Did you know?
 

Colorado has the strongest setback rules in the Rockies — requiring drilling to occur at least 1,000 feet from high occupancy buildings like schools or hospitals, and 500 feet from our homes.

So what’s the harm in pushing them back a little further to say 2,000 feet?It’s a reasonable question.

Here are the facts: A bigger setback certainly increases the no-drilling area. But a radius of 2,000 feet isn’t just quadrupling the distance of the existing no-drilling zone—it’s actually 16 times the current, legal distance!

Factor in any surrounding buildings, like a detached garage or barn, and a 2,000 foot setback quickly escalates into a de facto fracking ban— not to mention creatingless flexibility in a landowner’s ability to decide where drilling takes place on his or her own property.

In conjunction with the Commonsense Policy Roundtable,a Colorado Leeds School of Business studyfound this reduced drilling activity would devastate our state’s economy.They found over the next 25 years, a 2,000-foot setback would eliminate:

  1. 49,000 jobs
  2. $3,344 of annual income (per avg. family of four)
  3. $439 million per year in tax revenue

We need your help to spread the word.

Will you join me and CRED in sharing the effects of 2,000-foot setbacks? Every Colorado community benefits from fracking and the regulations behind it. Together we can ensure that nothing disrupts those benefits.

Sincerely,

Jon Haubert
Coloradans for Responsible Energy Development(CRED)
