Re: “The campaign for Amendments 60 and 61 and Prop 101 sounds bad, but it may just work

VOTE YES ON 60 61 & 101
DON'T LISTEN TO THE GOVERNMENT PORK

We finally can vote to keep our money directly. No more DMV ripoffs, pork spending, or wasting my money.

The money we save will come from Colorado State Funding as people are saying, if these pass. They will take the money from overpaid state employees, congress and pure pork and finally streamline spending. Plus k-12 is protected, where is your argument now. Only overpriced universities are not covered, and they should not get my tax dollars. Compete like the rest of private education.

I think these measures are great. It is about time someone wrote some initiatives to actually help us keep our money. The government is out of control. It is so important that Coloradans vote yes on these issues because we are overtaxed and the money is not going where we want. This reigns in the pork where it counts in my pocket. Whoever wrote these. You are my hero. Maybe next year you guys can bring back some more tabor measures too.

As for the government, listen up. I read your cons to these measures and they are total BS. I don't care about DMV or state workers, police, firefighter, etc. Coloradans can't put food on the table and you need to have some cuts too. These defenses are not going to work this election. You guys should not be getting my money. I also care that CU Boulder is getting my money, why. They make enough money and colleges should not be paid by me. Your arguments are crap. I cannot imagine why anyone would not vote for these measures.

MY FELLOW COLORADANS, PLEASE I AM BEGGING YOU TO READ THESE MEASURES. THERE IS A REASON THAT MANY POLITICIANS ARE AGAINST IT. WE HAVE A CHANCE TO RIGHT THE WRONGS THIS ELECTION.

THANK YOU

Boy, some Coloradans are either stupid, easily swayed by hype, or are getting money from this Colorado public service system. DO NOT BELIEVE WHAT THEY ARE PREACHING.

60 proposes reducing property taxes.
Colorado government is overpaid, and I see no problem reducing my property taxes. They are constantly increasing tax levies without my permission, and it is pissing me off. My house is not worth its supposed value, and I pay ridiculous amounts of property taxes. I will never sell it for what the state says its worth.

61 forbids debt by loan in any form.
61 Colorado cannot run up a deficit, what is wrong with this. Pay as you go and save for a rainy day like the rest of us. My family is pay as we go, and we are deathly close to bankruptcy.

101 state income tax rate from its current 4.63 percent to 3.5 percent. Reduce taxes and fees on vehicle purchases, registrations, leases and rentals. End all state and local charges on telecommunication services except for 911 fees. What is wrong with this. My $15 phone service costs $30 dollars due to Colorado taxes, ridiculous. $50 car registration when it costs Colorado $4 bucks to process. What are all my sales taxes for. Currently I register in New Mexico to save money on my vehicles.

Look I feel bad for public service people like cops, firefighters, teachers, but many of you are overpaid or not needed. Honestly, food on my families table comes first. If you public servants want a change, reduce how much politicians, administrators, principals and all the other wasteful spending, and not speaking out against this measure. This measure will force that issue, and if each civil job wants more money ask for it next election.

I hope this election does not end up like the fiasco of Referendum C that gave Colorado an additional 5.7 billion over five years rather than the 3.7 billion originally estimated. Colorado took $450 from a single taxpayer to 1,250 from joint filers. Colorado politicians lied and took more money than they were supposed to. Look it up if you don't believe me. They took 1,250 bucks out of my families mouths and spent it on more wasteful projects and staff.

WE NEED A CHANGE
THIS MONEY WILL DEFINITELY KEEP MY FAMILY FED AND GIVE US A CHANCE TO AVOID BANKRUPTCY.

GOD BLESS
