the fact is that with as sad as our voting rules are they are better than anyother I lived in Singapore for a long time and the PAP is as dirty as they come yes it is sad how the U.S. has fallen but it's still better than anyother place on the globe

You are right about that, Ring Master??? Politics in general is nothing but a circus not only in Denver but the country as well. Voting is nothing more then a placebo for the general public to think we actually have a say so in what goes on.

There is no way that Romer will not win this election...WHY ????? VOTERS do not have to present an ID to vote because the Presidential election is more important than local elections...so with that in mind .....which minority group is getting sold out so the President can get more votes .... it's not the Hispanics !!!! If you think it is bad now wait until 12 million illegals are fast tracked to being citizens and their over all % of the total populations increases to 16 to 17% and the Blacks stay at 8% , who will be getting all of the jobs..... They are the ones who will be getting screwed by the current admin....

.....Either way, the Denver taxpayers will lose this election, Romer's in the pocket of the Unions and all things Liberal, and Hancock is all about income redistribution...sorry Denver, you're hosed!!!!

Does it really matter? Two sides of the same liberal coin. Either way, taxes will go up, illegals will prosper and the rest of us are screwed.

Because conservatives do such a better job? The single largest problem in this country is VOTER APATHY. Brought about because the legislature refuses to listen to the voters. Tax cut only serve the wealthy, the tax base is solidly placed on the back of the poor, and the less fortunate. We like liberals, because they care more about the little people, and less about the wealthy. Now, I will be called a socialist, for making an honest statement. The Boehner across the board cuts do no one any good. Before we cut programs that help real people, let's cut WASTE. Billions of $$'s in waste can be found throughout our government. In the last budget, every cut was made to programs that benefit the poor. What about the Pentagon? Please tell me again, Senator Boehner, how there is NO WASTE at the Pentagon. By the way I am in Real Estate, and have some ocean front property, just outside of Denver you would be interested in.

Tax the rich all you want - it won't solve the spending problems or cut the national debt. Half of all households pay no tax. If you really care about the "little people", get them ready to work so they are not dependent on anyone. Also, Boehner is NOT a Senator. And yes, there is waste in the Pentagon, but its scope doesn't come close to the waste we see in social programs. They have failed; poverty persists. Handouts don't work, except in buying votes for those who perpetuate dependency.

Mick: you just love to throw the "bagger" tag around, eh? Do I espouse the essentials of Tea Party thought? You bet: lower taxes, smaller government and the promotion of free enterprise are the qualities that made our nation great. I have little use for the social conservative nonsense, but I do insist that people start making their own way and move away from the public trough. Liberals usually forget that national defense is a constitutional obligation of the federal government. Social welfare spending is not - and the fraud perpetrated by Medicaid and Food Stamps dwarfs $400 toilets and the like. What is worse, spending on those failed programs increases geometrically each year, without a program review or a Congressional vote. Unfortunately, too many are addicted to government spending, and cannot break the habit - just like crack or meth.

Druid0621.......My mistake, I did refer to Boner as Senator Boehner. I apologize for that, but that's all.. I recently moved to Denver, from OHIO. Love this area. You are reading from the tea-bagger script. The Pentagon has the highest waste per dollar spent as any in government. Boehner will take a position today, and refuse to admit that it was his position tomorrow. So goes the history of the great Boner, er Boehner. No one is asking or advocating handouts. But just to show how out of touch you really are, you said, the waste at the Pentagon does not come close to that of social programs. Bagger, that's out of touch.
