Do you feel it?  There’s a groundswell of hope as bright as a severe clear November sky.  As the trees change colors and prepare for their winter’s rest, and the ground is blessed with moisture that gives life to the season’s last blooms, there is an expectation that this winter will not be as dark and bleak as the last four have been.

President Washington is credited with saying “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence - it is force.  Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”

Colorado has experienced a summer of uncontrolled fire and the devastation and loss that goes along with it.  Not one of us escaped the oppressing smoke – though we may have escaped the flames.
Not one of us as escaped the effects of an uncontrolled government, either.  Now we see clearly that we have allowed our servant to become our master, and we have been burned.
When we are the American Government’s master, and God is ours, then freedom can blossom.

Vote Republican this fall to start the change.  Then rest this winter, knowing that whatever seeds of creativity or perseverance you decide to cultivate, you will be able to reap the fruits of your own labor.

But by all means, tend the fire!

Rae Chornenky, President of the National Federation of Republican Women, (NFRW), gave a speech at the fall convention of the Colorado Federation of Republican Women in which she stated evidence from many different sources that there really does seem to be a War on Women.

Joann Sindelir: The business we built

I have heard so many untruths about large and small businesses in our country not "paying their fair share." As the retired owner of Sindelir Furnishings, I want to inject some truth about what my husband and I experienced during 33 years of business in Longmont.

We "paid our fair share" from the local level on up. The city of Longmont collected not only sales tax, but also "use" taxes on all equipment, from computers to forklifts. Boulder County received sales tax and property taxes (to support "open space"). The state collected workers' compensation, unemployment tax and sales tax. On the federal level, we paid 7.25 percent Social Security tax for our employees.
