  •  So... (0+ / 0-)

    This is all about voter turnout, so theyre going whole hog nationwide on this now. They know this isnt Constitutional, but that, of course, is the furthest thing from the point.

    Tell me, by chance, what are Colorado's referendum laws and if this passes would a referendum on it be on the Nivember ballot?

        Depends on when it gets overturned,  but thanks for missing the point entirely changing the subject for no apparent purpose.

        •  personally I think challenging the law (0+ / 0-)

          with a referendum dignifies it and leaves the impression that it is something that should be taken seriously. I'm not sure that is the impression that should be created for a law that is so beyond the pale. Confidently ignoring it until it is overturned might make a clearer more unequivocal statement.

          That's all I meant, I didn't mean to change the subject.

      By large margins.

      Twice.

      These are the same fucking assholes that won't pass equal marriage because they want 'the people' to speak on it.  But Colorado has already defeated this measure.  Twice.
