Save the Caucus!


This wonderful grassroots system has served us well since 1912. 

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

“We're systematically replacing ‘social capital’ with plain old monetary capital (with primaries),” wrote Sue O'Brien in 2002. “Colorado's traditional caucus-convention system, in contrast, rewards the shoe-leather and diligence. It provides a low-cost way for aspirants to work the neighborhoods, investing energy instead of dollars.” See complete article in post here on COCaucus.org.

ONE OF BEST NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES IS TONIGHT! Go! Go to report and post pictures as a citizen journalist (Tweet to #COCaucus to be in contest-- hopefully you'll be awarded 1st prize at Colorado Press Association Spring convention), go to just observe, or go to vote if you are registered as a member of that party for the last two months, a very understandable requirement!
