Why neighbors?

What issue? What candidate? In our representative democracy these are not the questions I ask myself very often, but rather I ask what good may I do today?

Some use their neighbors to advance their cause.

I prefer to help my neighbors learn about our Colorado Caucus, regardless of their political opinions, trusting that those neighbors  those who become block workers or precinct committee people or district captains will pick good representatives for us, or they will become candidates for elected office themselves and if they are elected they will make up their mind on particular issues. 

Ben Franklin told us we have a republic if we can keep it. Picking one issue and insisting on my way with it seems to be not in the spirit of what had made this such a great country until the late 60s to early 70s. We are a republic and not a democracy. 

And being selfish and self-centered, insisting on my own way is certainly not very neighborly. 

For more about this between now and the 2016 elections watch this educational (we hope) site sponsored by the Small Business Chamber of Commerce, Inc 

We as an organization are not affiliated with any political party, issue committee or candidate, but we cooperate with all who love the United States of America and our radical experiment in self-government that began in 1776 and continues today to the extent that we continue to be free citizens in a republic. http://www.COCaucus.org
