Colorado’s grass-roots revolt against the gun-grabbers – Michelle Malkin
Through hard work and local activism, the grassroots campaign gathered 16,000 signatures in three months to qualify the recall for the ballot. Morse “changed state Senate committee rules, which effectively silenced the voices of hundreds of Colorado citizens from testifying on legislation” affecting them, Harris points out. While Democrats made room for out-of-state astronaut Mark Kelly, husband of former Arizona congresswoman and Tucson shooting survivor Gabby Giffords, to testify before the legislature, the majority Dems manipulated the process so that untold numbers of Colorado residents who support the Second Amendment were frozen out.
In his new No. 1 New York Times bestseller, “The Liberty Amendments,” Mark Levin calls for citizen activists to use the tools and principles the Founding Fathers bestowed upon us to restore the balance of power back to “we, the people.” The spirit of George Washington animates the important battle here in Colorado. As Washington wrote to his nephew in 1787:
“The power under the Constitution will always be in the people. It is entrusted for certain defined purposes, and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own choosing; and whenever it is executed contrary to their interest, or not agreeable to their wishes, their servants can, and undoubtedly will, be recalled.”
The issue of gun control in Colorado and the response to it by people who believe in the Constitution is SO much bigger than just that issue itself. This is a clear example of a group of people raising their voices and getting a corrupt government under control. You CAN do something about what’s going on but you have to speak up. You have to encourage others to speak up. You have a voice that can change the direction of this country but you must use it.
