Our readers write on candidates, issues TABOR is one bad idea

It figures that Mary Adams, as the instigator of TABOR, would like to get rid of all opposition to the referendum. She was quoted as saying: “As far as I’m concerned we can sweep them right out of the state.”

A few of the letters-to-the-editor have questioned why people who oppose TABOR are afraid of majority rule. Well, I am opposed to TABOR and the one thing that makes it unacceptable to me is that it will let the majority rule. One-third of any group voting can stop the other two-thirds from passing a budget.

Why? Because the people who wrote this nonsense can’t convince a simple majority that their ideas on funding our towns and schools are the correct way. Adams’ statement about the opposition makes that very clear.

Well, I am staying right here and will fight this bad idea to the end.
