"As one of Eckerstrom's Republican opponents told NPR, "Democracy can be a real pain" Am I the only one here who still remembers the US as being a republic and not a democracy? And why is it unconstitutional in Colorado for there to be state representative from every county in Colorado? It seems that's how the state legislature is made up, am I correct? People from the different counties and their districts are elected to represent the people. That is very constitutional and should be happening right now!

Dialogue can only work when the opposing sides have a common goal that is in the best interests of all constituents.
Colorado's legislature however, has a bad habit of pushing through very unpopular laws and then expecting us to obey those laws as if they came down from Mt. Sinai. Believe me, they did not; but you the legislature haven't listened.
So there is talk about secession and it evidently got your attention, didn't it.
What will really get your attention is the next time elections come around and like Karma; it's going to bite you where it hurts. Can't wait.

If North Colorado waits for "democratic" representation, the Denver liberal elites will have already smothered North Colorado economic issues with their extreme liberal agenda. We need louder voices like Mr Conway before it is too late to save our values and economic interests.

What a shame such idiots still exist from the Tea Party and push our state and our country in idiotic directions. Perhaps the Tea Party and users who destroy our lands should all leave the US and find an island somewhere that is contaminated with nuclear waste. Stop supporting such morons and lets get together to do what we need to do to keep the state competitive to more enlightened regions of the country.

Maybe all of the liberal losers in this country should just move to California and form it's own nation of whackjobs. Just don't try moving back when your utopia turns into a hellhole as a result of your ass backwards way of running things.

Dear, the Tea Party is simply fighting the powers that be for their freedom, individual liberty and constitutional law. We don't want to destroy anything except progressivism, which is what is hurting your state and others as well. We want people to be held accountable for trampling our rights and breaking the law. Please look further into the TP before judging us all as the liberal media sloths have done. They couldn't be more wrong.
