The writer mentioned several times that Coloradans don't like to raise taxes..Well if it was for good reason then yes I have no problem with raising taxes but when we have so much needless spending for so long its time to stop and live with what we have..We don't need more recreation centers..the ones we have now aren't hardly used by english speaking kids. We dont need more money to throw at schools. We need to teach them with teachers not sports fields. I cant believe the money spent on building schools..If we get rid of Anchor kids and parents then we solve all these problems..Spend money on that instead. Invest in Americans future instead Illegal aliens. Circle the wagons..

The message is very clear. We are not going to cut back so the government can spend more on stuff we don't want it spent on.

Ya want more money per student? Lets educate citizens. Illegals need to get their education from THEIR government. It would be nice if we could teach the whole world how to read and write. We can't afford it. The obligation of OUR government is to educate OUR citizens and protect us from invasion.

84% of the population wants the illegals deported. How naive of the government to think we are going to give them more of our money to educate them.

There so many reasons for this not passing..I know for a fact when they had a problem with something like one of the surveillance cameras then they rip all 600 of them out and install new ones.This kind of thing can cost each school millions and the people running the money dont know how to run the contractors.The school districts dont know how to be frugal in any way and were just throwing money out in the trash. Then there are some teachers that think they have to keep up with schools that actually deserve all the goodies and they fabricate their standings to get extra funding..Good for Denver and Colorado on this one. If you dont like it, move back to Cali.

About you saying people without kids should not have to pay taxes for schooling is what I recall. IMO that got nothing to do with this vote.

I said on Oct 8th in a Denver thread that I do not support Proposition 103.

Do you need to belong to the majority group? I don't nor do I really want to be listed with them.

A study found that 22 percent of Americans could name all five Simpson family members, compared with just 1 in 1,000 people who could name all five First Amendment freedoms."

I can't name the Simpson family but I know my First Amendment freedoms.
