Letter to the Editor: The systemic threat to democracy comes from the Democratic Party

CJ Milmoe

President Joe Biden and Bidenistas believe disputes about the 2020 election and the ugly Jan. 6 Capitol riot, which ultimately caused a six-hour delay in Vice President Mike Pence’s certification of Biden’s electoral victory, prove there is a systemic threat to democracy.

Linda Harmon believes the threat comes from “extreme conservatives” who will establish an “autocracy” in Colorado.

Voters should not believe this imaginary “threat” to democracy from conservatives is more important than issues directly affecting their lives. The real threat to democracy is from the autocratic Biden and Gov. Jared Polis administrations and their policy failures:

  • economic stagflation hurting Colorado consumers workers and businesses
  • rising crime that makes streets unsafe for all of us
  • open borders that enable human trafficking of aliens and the importation of illegal drugs into our state
  • the mismanaged COVID response which caused prolonged and harmful shutdowns of workplaces, schools and public places
  • wasting trillions of dollars on inflationary federal and Colorado spending for “green energy,” for education, and for health care programs that enrich special interests without significant benefits for the public, students, or patients

The real victories for democracy this year came from the conservative U.S. Supreme Court in two rulings on regulation. One required that democratically elected state legislators, not federal judges, establish abortion regulations. The second ruled that federal bureaucrats cannot expand air quality regulations without authority from the democratically elected U.S. Congress.

Voters should be extremely threatened by the failures of the Biden administration and Reps. Julie McCluskie and Dylan Roberts. They reduce democracy by expanding the autocratic power of unelected judges and bureaucrats to control our private lives. 

Voters should end autocratic Democrat one-party rule in Colorado by replacing Julie McCluskie and Dylan Roberts with David Buckley and Matt Solomon.
