Parker: Proud of Colorado’s liberal leanings

I admit I am a transplanted Liberal Easterner. When we moved out here Colorado was looked at as a Red State similar to Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, etc. In the last few years we have become a beacon for the East in terms of the type of changes we are making. Look at the way we are leading the country in terms of gun legislation, civil unions, tuition assistance for the children of illegal immigrants, pot legalization, etc. I am so proud to tell my Eastern fiends that they should look to Colorado as a leader in what is good an just for the US. Now I know that not everyone will agree with this feeling, but remember this is an opinion page.
