Very interesting endorsements for D20, given that two of your endorsements don't support 66.
As with anything else, you get the government you pay for. Schools are worth it. And taxing recreational marijuana? That's a no-brainer.
What a surprise - a liberal newspaper endorses raising taxes. How about recommending the cancellation of some old taxes first?
Vote YES on the recall...send a message for them to stop chipping away at our personnal liberties.
You got me, Berto.
The Indy's website nests their endorsements under their News category (for some reason), therefore this must be a news story.
Anyway, what exactly are we supposed to be debating the merits of?
El Producto, you said, "Endorsements are slanted by their nature. Just cause you don't agree with the Indy's opinion doesn't change the fact the paper has the right to voice it. You recall supporters sure love to berate the other side into silence."
Your holier than thou post is laughable. Nobody is telling the Indy they don't have the right to write. Let me help with your reading comprehension. The puff piece perspective which I and a majority of the Indy readers reject shows up connected to their NEWS page, not their OPINION page. It is not NEWS; it is opinion. I also addressed a few of the reasons that justify the recall. I also addressed the FACT that, despite what the Indy writer said, the recall process IS the legal tool to "reclaim the process (their words)".
I don't know about anti-recall people but YOU sure know how to avoid the relevant subject. And YOU sure know how to stereotype and lie about other's intentions. THAT is no assumption; that is based on your exact words, my friend. By the way, if disagreeing with something is an attempt to 'berate the other side into silence', then stop berating me!
Step off your soap box and interact with the ideas at hand.

I not only think but, I know based on everyone that I have talked to and that's both sides. Is that these recalls are demanded because both have failed to do what the people have asked them to do! That's support OUR RIGHTS, not take them away or infringe them! They have forgotten it's "WE THE PEOPLE" not I the Government!
VOTE YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ON RECALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Take back your RIGHTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Morse proposed ludicrous gun legislation that was so insane it wouldn't have made it off the senate floor. When he saw the embarrassment looming he pulled the legislation. But that did not stop him from pushing other legislation that was less draconian yet equally anti-second ammendment. The man has supported legislation that raised utility rates for a select group. He needs to go, CS Indy. THIS is how we "reclaim the process" (your words, oh anonymous Indy writer of faux news; if this article is 'news' then I am Walter Cronkite). Obviously the Indy does not speak for the respondents here. Thank goodness Indy readers are as intelligent as they are diverse. They can smell a political puff piece hiding under the guise of 'news.' Mama always said that if it looks like a skunk, lifts its tail like a skunk, and squirts stinky from its hoohoo, its a skunk. The same can be said of this article.
That had been ferreted out while the new gun control laws were still being debated. It was exposed again while the petitions were still being circulated. Indeed, the uncovering of the fact Bloomberg was involved in the anti-petition campaign was what led the NRA to get involved as before that happened they wanted absolutely nothing to do with the recall effort.
The elite are trying to change America...and Morse is their local pawn. Kick the stooge out!
How do you know that, Dave H?
Hummmmm with all due respect, I have always read the CS Indy and enjoyed the balance that you all showed in being honest and fair. I along with what I see so for, the majority of the replys seem to see a " way out in left field " view of what our political process has been, coming from your paper on this recall issue. I really expected more form you in reguard to Morse's failings in his representing his constituants and our state.
Bloomberg funneled a good bit of money in to the issues and support for Morse long before they began sending disclosed money.
350 thousand, not million.
And it didn't come through PACs. It was donated out in the open. That's why we even know about it.
It's the gun lobby and the recall supporters who are hiding all their money in 501(c)4s.
I must have missed your coverage of the $350 million Michael Bloomberg donated to fight the recall effort (i.e. attempt to thwart CO voters ONCE AGAIN!!)... Bloomberg needs to go back to NY, along with his skeevy little PAC-rats. Next time you try to paint a politician as “fighting special interests,” make sure you pick a politician who has actually done that, like one taking on the pharmaceutical industry, or utility monopoly...
Remember people: With great power, comes great electricity bill.
This recall is an absurd waste of taxpayer dollars.
