Insult to democracy?. Bill here are all the figures you need to know. 55% to 45% Colorado Voters declared that marriage was between one man and one woman.  47% to 52% Colorado Voters said No to Civil Unions. Both occurred in 2006.

I saw a poll that showed if the civil unions bill was on the ballot in 2012 the outcome would be the same. 39% yes-46% No with 15% undecided. This was a poll of some 2400 voters.

I would say that if 62% of Colorado voters approved of Civil Unions, the matter would be on the ballot, as it would be a slam dunk.

The truth is the poll I saw was more definitive of the results one might see on this ballot initiative, hence the attempt by the Democrats to go behind the back of the people of Colorado and force this through the Legislature.

Nice job by ignoring the fact that almost all of these “rights” being demanded already exist in Colorado, as they were passed in 2009. Nice job ignoring the fact that if this was so important, both Statewide and Nationwide, the Democrats had complete control of the Government Apparatus for two years, but did nothing to pass this.

Finally, let us call this bill what it was, The Same Sex Marriage Bill. It was not a civil unions bill as it contained the word Spouse at least 23 times.

Speaker McNulty was right, this was an attempt by the Democrats on both a national and statewide level to draw attention away from their failing Economic Policies. They brought it now because, they could use it as a fund raising wedge. Come September, this will be a non-issue as it is a sure loser for the Democrats.
