Hi all,

I am working with Resistnet.com. We need to work together, all of us if we are going to do anything of value. With all the things that face us now and will face us in the not too distant future, I can only see one way to mitigate much of it. It's by asserting our state sovereignty under the 10th Amendment of the Constitution. We are not an agent of the feds. We are a sovereign state in union with other sovereign states bound in union by the law of the U.S. Constitution, the Colorado Constitution, nature and nature's God. This is a movement beginning in earnest. TX has already set aside a date for addressing this. I find it unacceptable that my, our state, is behind the curve. states such as NB, AK, OK, TN, TX, etc. are all out ahead of us on that. There is a bill pending in Colorado that has been stalled in committee indefinitely. We need to call to account all who stand in the way.

I just got off of the phone with Rep. Perlmutter's office. I was informed that he has no plans to hold any townhall meetings during the August recess. According to this article he said he was going to forego some of his vacation to meet with constituents. Obviously he is scared of the truth and worse he is a LIER.

I suggest you contact his office and voice your dissatisfaction. His number in Colorado is 303-274-7944

National demonstrations of Revolutionary spirit appear to be more than fleeting episodes of civic passion. Stirred by the recent torrents of forceful bureaucracy, Americans seem to know their liberty is in jeopardy.

Many spontaneous protests evoke the Boston Tea Party. There, feverous speeches channel the Founders and are brilliantly propounded by unfamiliar orators who are more often unaided by the privilege of elected title.

Websites, podcasts, Internet videos and town-square demonstrations have leapt from burbling soapboxes to become the Boston Harbors of today. New leaders are bursting out everywhere – good ones, too – from the ranks of the people; not from the offices of government. This is really cool!

It’s a good time for patriots to consider the concept of “leading upward” meaning helping others to find their voice and become the leaders of tomorrow. Yes, good leaders are always apt to lead, to deliver a rousing speech and chair the meeting themselves.

Great leaders, though, develop leadership in others, always willing to support, organize, promote and inspire. Leading upward means putting one’s ego aside, celebrating the promise of those with talent, taking a seat in the audience as one’s protégés ascend the stage.

Leading upwards entails knowing the personal and professional needs of others, appreciating their egos and developing their skill. It’s what prepares great managers to become great CEOs, and what turns great players into winning coaches.

In 1774, the British blockaded the Boston Port in an attempt to starve the city’s rebellious citizens. In solidarity, surrounding communities and neighboring colonies organized relief.

William Prescott led the people of his town to raise and deliver considerable supplies of rye. His letter to the famished Bostonians is a vintage example of leading upward.

“We heartily sympathize with you, and are always ready to do all in our power for your support, comfort and relief; knowing that Providence has placed you where you must stand the first shock,” he wrote. “We consider we are all embarked in [the same boat] and must sink or swim together. We think if we submit to these regulations, all is gone.”

As the urgency for developing liberty-oriented leadership is high, the need for leading upward has never been more crucial. Many ask me, “What can I do?”

I implore you the reader to be a great leader, to be like William Prescott. The need is very real and the opportunity is truly revolutionary.

Like Prescott, we think if we submit to the torrents of forceful bureaucracy, all is gone.

Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, plans to be in Denver Thursday to draw attention to the impact of federal stimulus funding on local health-care services.

Pelosi, a San Francisco Democrat, plans to tour Denver’s Stout Street Clinic, operated by the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless.

Joining her will be U.S. Reps. Diana DeGette, D-Denver, and Jared Polis, D-Boulder, as well as John Parvensky, CEO of Colorado Coalition for the Homeless.

Speaker Pelosi and Members of the Colorado Delegation will see firsthand how the economic recovery funds are being used to offer vital health care services, create jobs, and lay the foundation for health insurance reform,” DeGette’s office said Wednesday in a statement.

Pelosi also plans to use the Denver visit to stump for the health-care reform measure that passed the House Energy and Commerce Committee, of which DeGette is vice chair, last Friday. With the House in recess, many congressional backers of the plan are fanning our around the country to campaign for the reform plan, which is opposed by many Republicans in Congress.

Hey Colorado, I have the pleasure of driving through PRB to IBM on a daily basis now. It used to burn my skin to go through it, but I'm building up a tolerance - there are a FEW honest conservatives there that the hippies and yuppies haven't driven out.

I'll be checking up on this site once a day at least to see if there's been any activity.

Hello all,
I'm up here in Longmont. We have the misfortune to belonging in the same county as the People's Republic of Boulder. At any rate, I am a member of a teaparty group on Meetup.com. However, the Boulder County chapter has not even met. Therefore, I'd like to get something going in CO....preferably up this way.
