View Full Version : Colorado: Recall John Morse

08-21-2013, 10:06 AM
Americans for Responsible Solutions has released an ad opposing the recall of Colorado State Senator John Morse for his actions in pushing the passage of the recent slate of draconian (and inane) gun control laws.


It mentions "safety" about 20 times, but somehow neglects to mention exactly what got Sen. Morse in such hot water.


Funny, that...

We should stand behind this recall effort 100%. Representatives across America need to learn that going against the will of their constituents has consequences.

The group funding and spearheading the CO recall effort is the Basic Freedom Defense Fund. Lots of out of staters donate to Calguns, the least we can do is help out our friends in Colorado.

The Basic Freedom Defense Fund has done a great job with this recall effort. A little while back a local AM radio show I listen to during the evening commute had a live broadcast from a gun shop in Morse's district. I stopped by to see it and lots of people showed up in support and there's a real feeling that something good is being done to combat Senator's Morse and Giron who both have recall elections on Sept. 10th.

The most interesting thing about this recall to me is that Morse is known to be in bed with Bloomberg and receives most of his money from Bloomberg funded groups. Now he's getting help from Gabby Giffords' Americans for Responsible Solutions. Literally all of his support comes from outside of Colorado and the little bit that is from Colorado doesn't appear to be from his district, but from Denver and Boulder.

On the other hand, the recall has been pushed incredibly hard by in-state interests and more specifically those within his district. It's telling that his district and state who clearly don't want him are running into such opposition from big money democrats out of state. Especially from John Morse, the Senate President who literally told the rest of the Senate NOT TO LISTEN TO THEIR CONSTITUENTS. Now his constituents are telling him that he should have listened to them.

Thanks for posting OP. Going to donate.

He needs to be recalled. The message needs to be sent as quickly and loudly as possible to stop messing the 2A rights. He's recall may even inspire others to do the same in other states.

We win together!

I just checked their Twitter and followed the BFDF. Hoping to get them more recognition. I will help spread the word as best I can.

IOW, updated a couple of hours ago.

So.... perhaps they are moving their hosting around and the name server info hasn't propagated yet.

Got an e-mail from Basic Freedom Defense Fund Today.

With only two weeks left, we need your help!

We are two weeks away from the first recall election in Colorado's history and we could not have gotten this far without your help. As always, we are grateful for every dollar and every minute you have shared in getting us here in defense of our rights. But - also as always, it seems - we are not yet out of the woods.

We at the Basic Freedom Defense Fund have done exactly what we promised to do - we've given our fellow citizens a chance to make their voices heard, despite having been silenced and ignored by the people we pay to represent us. We fought with everything we had to get the question "Shall John Morse be recalled from office?" on a ballot. But it's not enough.

As consumed as our lives have been by this recall effort, it's shocking to us to find that many district voters still aren't aware that an election is imminent. Some believe that the question will be on the general ballot in November. Some believe that getting the petition signatures certified was enough to ensure that John Morse would be removed. Some believe that the election is still mail-in-only and they will patiently wait for a ballot that will never arrive. All are wrong and
risk squandering the opportunity we've afforded them.

We need to reach out to these people and educate them before it's too late. And we need your help - again - to make that happen.

It's our goal to launch a final educational campaign in Senate District 11 and the surrounding areas, alerting district voters to the details of the upcoming election and asking those outside the district to pitch in and spread the word. It will cost money that we simply do not have and that is not forthcoming from other groups or parties.

However, this mailing list has over 2,500 recipients. If everyone reading this gave even $10, we would have more than enough funding to contact the citizens of Colorado Springs with the information they need to finish what we began and to bring accountability to John Morse and other politicians of his ilk.

Any amount will help and we won't be asking again. Because, in two very short weeks, this will be over - one way or the other. If you can give, do give and take this last chance to remind our legislators that "we, the people" still own our rights - and they are not for sale.

With Sincerest Thanks,

The Basic Freedom Defense Fund

As you know, Bloomberg wrote a personal check for $350,000 to save his pawns these candidates. We might not have that kind of bank, but we do have numbers, so if you've been thinking about it, donate now... it's good for the soul.
