We’re getting dumber, at least here in Colorado...
It's not enough that unwashed liberalism has spilled out of the hippie asylum known as Boulder, we are also suffering a plague of liberals swarming the state as they flee their collapsing progressive experiments. Even worse, these blue state refugees now want to invite even more, including liberal foreigners.
The city of Denver is looking to bid on the 2022 Winter Olympics, and I am firmly against it. I don’t want mobs of outsiders screwing up my skiing and clogging up my roads and I don’t want my state stuck with the inevitable debt and the deadbeats who decide to stay on after the party's over.
Here’s an excerpt from a Denver Post article describing why Colorado used to be such a great state before the California liberals moved in…
In 1972, Lamm led an effort to block Denver from hosting the 1976 Winter Games — the only time an Olympics city has done that. Nearly 60 percent of Colorado voters agreed to reject the Games, which had been awarded to the city 2 1/2 years earlier. Voters had feared taxpayers would be stuck paying for skyrocketing costs and wary of the environmental damages caused by hordes of spectators. (Denver Post)We used to be a good mix of libertarian liberals and conservatives with a live and let live attitude. Not anymore. We’re now getting stupider, and this is being powered by the mass influx of east coast and west coast liberals into the liberal loon town of Denver. You can see evidence of this in on-line forums. Enlightened progressives sing Obama's praises and remark what an east coast feel Denver has, and they are right. It is now easily the least "Colorado" part of the state.
Reminds me of that old saying: Half of the people in Colorado live in Denver, and the rest of us are glad they do!
