Ferrandino makes two erroneous statements in this article.  1) The “majority” does not favor civil unions nor gay marriage and 2) the form of government in Colorado and the U.S. is NOT a democracy—it is a representative republic.  Believe me, if the issue was decided by a true democracy, civil unions and gay marriage would never be approved.

All that said, I don’t care if a civil unions bill is approved—just don’t call it “marriage.”  It’s time to get the government out of the marriage business.  Leave it to religious organizations.  If you research the reasons that government marriage licenses were first issued, it was for very racist reasons.  Marriage doesn’t belong to the government; the government should have nothing to do with approving marriage between anyone.

Well, so much for Colorado establishing itself as one of a few conservative islands in a sea of liberalism.  With the Democrats running things, you will soon have a State of “potheads,” gay cohabitation on demand and gun haters.  What might be next on the agenda, following Obama’s attempts to destroy the 2nd Amendment and seize all firearms?

Of course, even with these recent changes, Colorado is still looking a heck of a lot better than the Peoples Republic of California, especially with the taxes.  Am still giving serious thoughts to relocating to the Grand Junction area, so mabye I will buy some land and become a “gentleman farmer,” growing those funnny looking green plants?  Happy New Year to my friends in GJ.

Twenty years from now conservatives will be claiming they were the ones fighting for same sex marriage. Join the winning team now and you won’t have to lie about it later.
