That we Coloradans might be duped by newcomers and outsiders into trading our grassroots for AstroTurf is very sad. But that is just what will happen if the forces seeking to, “Kill the Caucus”, use their great wealth and power to lure us into the Borg-like Presidential Primary system with their toxic Propositions 107 and 108.

Our Response to Paid TV Ad From Multimillion Dollar Campaign to Kill Colorado Grassroots./ PLEASE SHARE
Claim: Colorado Caucus unfair to average, ordinary citizen.
Truth: The Colorado Caucus is the best way for the average, ordinary citizen to serve in elected public office.
Without the Colorado Caucus, it is difficult for anyone to get elected to a local political office to represent their neighbors.
Powerful forces, backed by millions of dollars is trying to create chaos in Colorado politics. Why? It will kill the grassroots and make voters easier to manipulate with misleading ads like this one.
Yes, every two years all citizens have the opportunity to participate in their neighborhood caucus. Fact is not everyone wants to attend this two-hour meeting every year, and they don't have to do so.
After the Colorado Caucus candidates are put on the primary ballot and all citizens vote. Unaffiliated voters who want to vote are allowed to do so, help is provided online and at each polling place. It is a lie they are left out of the process.
This year's Presidential race is a mess, in part because powerful forces that manipulate the media with their huge ad budgets and lobbying power have succeeded in inducing states to give up the wonderful grassroots system we still have here in Colorado.
Vote NO on 107 and 108, they will kill the Colorado grassroots.

Powerful forces are trying to kill our wonderful Colorado Caucus. They know a Presidential Primary kills the Colorado Caucus, that's just what it did when we experimented with it before in the late 90's. Save the grassroots! Vote NO on 107 and 108!

SAVE THE COLORADO CAUCUS! VOTE NO ON CAUCUS KILLING 107 AND 108.
Shall there be a change to the Colorado Revised Statutes recreating a presidential primary election to be held before the end of March in each presidential election year in which unaffiliated electors may vote without declaring an affiliation with a political party?
Shall there be a change to the Colorado Revised Statutes concerning the process of selecting candidates representing political parties on a general election ballot, and, in connection therewith, allowing an unaffiliated elector to vote in the primary election of a political party without declaring an affiliation with that party and permitting a political party in specific circumstances to select all of its candidates by assembly or convention instead of by primary election?
Powerful forces have poured $3 million into getting these two misguided measures onto the Colorado ballot. Most of the money came from newcomers to Colorado and their friends, and from powerful people who live outside Colorado.
There is an organized campaign to get legislation such as this passed in every state, thereby virtually killing the ability of common people to use a political party to get elected.
107 correctly uses the term "recreating," because not long ago we experimented with a presidential primary and found it was a waste of tax-payers dollars.
108 will create chaos, it would be like letting people from other states vote in the Colorado election. It's a very, very crazy idea. But it's ahead in the polls because of the heavy advertising that's been done.

Ideas for making the 2020 Presidential elections much, much better:
Friday, September 16, 2016
Thursday, September 15, 2016
Yes. That's why our wonderful neighborhood system for nominating to the primary ballot is such a good thing when it has good leadership, which it has not had for some time.
Answer: We asked who before he retired was one of the most knowledgeable election law experts in Colorado. He was unaware of this.
Starting in November 2010, Initiated Statutes are assigned numbers beginning with 100, restarting at 100 after 199, and instead of calling the measure an Initiative it is called a Proposition. See Colorado Revised Statutes, Title 1, Article 5, Section 407; Article 40, Section 115; Article 40, Section 124.5and Colorado Constitution, Article V, Section 1, ¶ 7.5
The director of research for the Colorado legislative council uses these new numbers in the Blue Book, an impartial voter information pamphlet with an abstract of the fiscal impact study and arguments for and against the measure.
