ezs note:  Colorado's 2nd State Senate district - granted, it's a long way off, but if you have a strong LGBTQ credential, have a good rapport with people (whether they agree or disagree with you), and, preferably, have a spot on a city or town council, perhaps it'll be time to take away Kevin Grantham's seat in the Senate.  In case you didn't know, he went to, ahem, 'school' at Liberty University, of airhead Jerry Falwell's starting.

Yeah, that's who you've got representing you in the 2nd District.  You can do better.

ezs note:  In case you missed it, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen is one of the few Republicans who tirelessly worked for the rights of transgender citizens.  Notably, she is one of the few in her party who did not vote for the abysmal Donald Trump.  She is retiring after this term.  Goodbye, Ileana - we will miss you!

ezs note:  Congratulations, Mr. Suprun!  You are doing your civic duty.  Republican electors, remember, you do NOT have to follow in goosestep behind Chancellor Trump.  I may be a Democrat, but I am perfectly comfortable with a Republican who understands the spirit of serving ALL of the people - and that's "serving", not "ruling".

Well... okay.  So it's a little early.  The fact of the matter is that the longer you procrastinate, the more likely it is that you will miss voting.  And it's a darn shame. Um... have you seen that dimwit Trump?  From my earliest days, the people whom the Republican party have chosen to be president have been controversial (in some cases, really controversial), but I honestly believe that in their heart of hearts, they did what was best for the United States.  Until now.

Let me say this loud and clear:  Donald Trump is a barking idiot!!!

Register and vote.  Election Day is November 8.

ezs note:  It goes to show you that what is needed in Congress is not a label, such as Democrat, Republican, Green, Independent, what have you - what is needed are thoughtful, compassionate, intelligent people.  Thanks, Ms Ros-Lehtinen!
