Because it's not about left or right, it's about right or wrong.

Jared Polis will become the next Governor of Colorado. Why it means CO is no longer a “Purple State.”

When I predicted that Jared Polis was the Democratic party’s favorite for candidate for Governor, I was laughed at, mocked, and ridiculed by residents on both sides of the political aisle. Well, apparently I am no longer phased by the backlash, because I am about to make another “bold” prediction:

Jared Polis will defeat Walker Stapleton for the Governor’s seat.  It won’t even be close. 

I am not stating that Jared Polis is a fantastic candidate, because he’s not. He represents the consistent hypocrisy displayed by the Democratic party. They say they are against economic elitism and the “one percent.” Yet, Jared Polis is worth over $400 million dollars. He personifies today’s version of elitism, a Boulder technocrat who has lost touch with reality. Recently, the spotlight has focused on monopolistic tech companies that pay low wages and destroy entire segments of local economies, like Amazon, or Facebook, Google and Youtube, and Polis would have no qualms about allowing Amazon to move to Denver, bringing thousands of employees with them, increasing the cost of living with more low paying jobs for the Colorado peasantry.  He even represents the more socialist-leaning elements of the Democratic party, an increasing demographic in Colorado. Universal Healthcare for all Coloradans! 

For these reasons, Polis is the perfect candidate. How could a perfect candidate be such a terrible choice? Well, it all makes sense if you view Colorado’s political landscape as one that is in moral, political, and economic decline. People will say Colorado has so many jobs, that everything is perfect. But the locals know that the cost of living and housing prices have skyrocketed way past what companies are currently paying. As more Democrats are elected in Colorado,  homelessness, poverty, and crime have all increased. One thing is for sure: as the culture changes in Colorado, it has attracted new and different demographics, and they largely do not vote conservative. Many of Colorado’s newcomers are from areas like California, Illinois, Oregon, and Washington. Technology firms have also invested heavily in Colorado, and these types of fields tends to attract those of a more liberal and regulatory mindset. One local Coloradan puts it best: it is not necessarily the amount of people moving to Colorado that is hurting the state we love, but the mindset of the people moving here. I also point this out in my article The Top Five Ways Californian Culture is Destroying Colorado . Without a doubt, Jared Polis’ background personifies the changes Colorado has experienced; he holds a strong advantage over Stapleton simply because of the large demographic shift that Colorado has felt in the last 10 years.  With not having a governor seat since 2007, to losing the House in 2008, and narrowly holding a one-seat majority in the Senate, the Colorado GOP is holding on by its teeth.

More importantly, Walker Stapleton is arguably one of the worst candidates the Colorado GOP has ever come up with for a Governor’s race.

Stapleton.pngI have an idea, lets elect the great grandson of a former Denver Mayor who was almost recalled for his loyalty to the KKK. Stapleton won the recall election, and the KKK celebrated by burning crosses on top of South Table Mountain.  You know, right when the Democrats’ grassroots group Antifa, chants: “No Trump! No KKK! No Fascist USA!” over and over again. Clearly, not one of the best PR moves made by the CO GOP’s marketing department. The irony is that Benjamin Stapleton was a Democrat. But it is not shocking. Walker’s mother is a cousin of former President HW Bush. The elitism at the top of both parties is ultimately what Stapleton represents. And sure enough, former President George W. Bush has donated to his second cousin’s campaign. One has to seriously question whether the leadership of the Colorado GOP stood down to let Polis win the election.

It is time for Colorado Republicans to recognize that they are the minority party in Colorado, and will be for the foreseeable future. The Colorado GOP should seriously consider a leadership change after the terrible slate of candidates they provided this election. In summary, they came up with: A carpetbagger from New York who was educated in California, an abusive alcoholic, a cousin of Mitt Romney, a grandson of a former Mayor who was a KKK member and also a Bush cousin. Seems like a great list to me!  I would take a look at California as an example of whats to come.

    Millionaire Tells Millennials: If You Want A House, Stop Buying Avocado Toast

    Stoopid millennials — this is all their fault. If only they would get good jobs and purchase consumer goods while saving money and be unquestionably loyal to their employers and get married and buy a house and start families and re-locate whenever the market requires, America would be great again.

    “a more liberal and regulatory mindset”

    Anyone who has ever played Monopoly — which is a model for socialism — knows how the game ends.

    “it is not necessarily the amount of people moving to Colorado that is hurting the state we love, but the mindset of the people moving here.”

    Regardless of the ideology of the new population, I disagree with the assumption that it is desirable, necessary, or possible for the population to grow.

    Things like desirable real estate, water, carrying capacity of the roads and other infrastructure, etc. are limited. Even if 100% of Colorado voted Republican, the state would still be turning into an over-crowded shit hole.

    I don’t know anyone who has ever been stuck in traffic and thought to themselves, “Those glibertarians are right, more people would be better for the economy” (cf, baby bust).

    Then there’s the question of : do liberals tend to move to more densely population areas, or does increasing population density make people more liberal?
