2010 Election Results
NATIONALLY: AN HISTORIC UPSET
Dennis Prager maintains we are "in a battle for the American system" and must focus on the Republican candidates because "they are the only ones who can beat the leftists." (01/29/2010 first hour)
The 2009, 2010 and 2011 elections proved beyond a doubt that conservatives can refuse to allow themselves to be splintered into impotent third parties and can rally and take over the Republican party by focusing on our most critical core values ~ We must never lose sight of that goal in every campaign in every corner of every State in the Union!
Remember: There is NO SUCH THING as a MODERATE Democrat ~ They proved with ObamaCare that they WILL fall in line when they're at the wire...They only vote against the leftist agenda when they are GIVEN PERMISSION to do so by their leadership!!

2010 ELECTIONS General Election ~ Tuesday November 2, 2010
If we are honest we would all have to admit we have turned a blind eye for too many years, letting the left move forward with their agenda, getting our country to the desperate state we currently find it. Let us now focus with all our strength on encouraging our Tip of the Spear Conservatives fight the Lefists with all their strength, even when it seems hopeless ~ and we must stand with them EVERY TIME they need us to send emails, make phone calls AND to testify at the state Capitol when bills are in committee. Remember, while EVERY phone call and email is critical, testifying in committee is essential because each testimony is entered into the record and is then used by our champions who go on to challenge these unconstitutional laws in court.
Don't procrastinate...time is short...

Summery of Conservative Victories 2010
Thank You to SmallBizGOP.com!

Republicans have taken control of the Colorado House of Representatives 33 seats to 32.
Some notable Republican pick-ups:
Don Beezley in Broomfield HD33 over Dianne Primavera
Kathleen Conti Littleton HD38 over Joe Rice
Robert Ramirez in Arvada HD29 over Debbie Benefield by 221 votes
Mark Barker in Colorado Springs HD17 over Dennis Apuan
Libby Szabo in Arvada HD 27 over Sara Gagliardi,
Keith Swerdfeger in Pueblo HD47 over Carole Partin

In the State Senate, Republicans fell short of claiming a majority, but picked up SD6 in Durango-area. Republican Ellen Roberts won the seat from Democrat Bruce Whitehead. The Democrats hold a 20-15 majority.

Some really close races:
Democrat John Morse held Colorado Springs SD11 over Republican Owen Hill by 252 votes.
Democrat Judy Solano in Brighton HD31 beat Republican Tom Janich by 366 votes.
Democrat John Soper in Thornton HD34 beat Republican Brian Vande Krol by 292 votes.
Democrat Jeanne Nicholson in mountain counties SD16 beat Republican Tim Leonard by 518 votes.
Democrat Michael Bennet was elected to his appointed US Senate seat and John Hickenlooper and Joseph Garcia won the Governor/Lt. Governor's seats.

Republican John Suthers won re-election as Attorney General.

Significant Republican pick-ups include Walker Stapleton for Treasurer and Scott Gessler for Secretary of State.

Regrettably, all of the Colorado Supreme Court Justices have been retained, in spite of Matt Arnold's best efforts to Clear the Bench.

Amendment 63, which would have protected Coloradoans rights to pay for private health care in anticipation of Obamacare creating a single-payer, nationalized system, was defeated despite of Jon Caldera's outstanding leadership.

On the national level, Republicans took control of the House of Representatives 239 to 185 with 11 races not yet called. Bye, Nancy!

Democrats still hold the US Senate 51 with a 51 seat majority.

Of 37 gubernatorial races, Republican governors won 23 and now hold the majority of state's chief exec positions. This is very significant as the governors determine the majority makeup of legislative district reapportionment committees.

Our thanks to all the Republican candidates who ran. Danny Stroud, Kaarl Hoopes, Christine Mastin, Dr. Mike Fallon, Ryan Frazier, Joshua Scharf, Pauline Olvera, Karen Cullen, Edgar Johansson, Brad Wagnon, Derec Shuler and John Odom are just some of the standout leaders who ran good campaigns, worked hard, and carried the Republican banner of personal responsibility, individual freedom, and less government intervention.

Thank you to all of you for making our republican form of government the best in the world!

How Republicans Can Blow the Coming Election
by Phyllis Schlafly
Pundits are predicting that Republicans could pick up 40 to 100 seats in the U.S. House this November. But Democrats are about to unveil their secret weapon to keep Nancy Pelosi in her catbird seat.
What could be the magic bullet with the potential to discredit the Republican Party as a vehicle for Americans opposed to Barack Obama's radical changes? The answer is Mexican trucks, a foolish idea left over from the George W. Bush era, and some Republicans are on the verge of drinking the Kool-Aid.
This month, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, the former Republican congressman from Peoria, Ill., told a Senate subcommittee that he would soon announce a plan to allow Mexican trucks to drive their loads on U.S. roads. He said the timing of this decision is "closer than soon." more TOP

"Obama's Deceptive Budget Will Lead to Disaster" by Ronald Kessler
"Embracing Liberty, Not Big Government" by Michael Barone shows how since Obama became president, our political debate has been transformed into an argument between the heirs of two fundamental schools of political thought, the Founders and the Progressives. The Founders stood for the expansion of liberty and the Progressives for the expansion of government. TOP

We the People
...will NOT allow our Constitution to be trampled by out-of-control legislators. They think they can ignore us and destroy us, but TeaPartiers, 9-12ers and a multitude of other Grass Roots organizations are energized and refocused.

Dennis Prager maintains we are "in a battle for the American system" and must focus on the Republican candidates because "they are the only ones who can beat the leftists." (01/29/2010 first hour)

The Elections of 2009 and 2010 proved beyond a doubt that conservatives can refuse to allow themselves to be splintered into impotent third parties and can rally and take over the Republican party by focusing on our most critical core values ~ We must never lose sight of that goal in every campaign in every corner of every State in the Union!

We must ultimately unite our efforts into an unstoppable juggernaut to reclaim our liberties, reclaim our Constitution, reclaim our Country..We CAN unite in reestablishing a government that is truly of the People, by the People and for the People!
