Well, there is no denying it: Coloradans are fighting back against the Marxist takeover that has drowned the state in progressive politics. More specifically, they are currently fighting against the national popular vote mandate that was passed by the legislature and signed by Governor Jared Polis. Colorado is one of the few states that have a direct ballot initiative written into their state constitution, which allows citizens to add ballot questions if they gather enough signatures statewide. This structure allowed for recreational marijuana legalization in 2014.
As we reported earlier, Coloradans organized a petition gathering effort to repeal the national popular vote compact that would bind Coloradans’ electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote. Most scholars agree that the state-by-state compact Colorado signed on to was illegal. Only the federal government can dictate the affairs of multiple states. Only the federal government can dictate the rules of a federal election.
There is good news for Coloradans who want to take their state back: organizers have gathered enough signatures for their repeal question to be added to the 2020 election ballot.
“We have over 185,000 signatures and petitions are coming in in packets,” said Rose Pugliese, a Mesa County commissioner and organizer of the effort. “They don’t want California and New York making those decisions. They want Coloradan votes to stay in Colorado.”
The petition signatures will need to be validated by the Colorado Secretary of State. We will keep you posted with the official outcome!
