A couple days ago, it was reported that Democrats in the Colorado legislature were driving gun manufacturers out of the state because of gun and ammo restrictions that they were considering. And when those companies leave, it will leave hundreds of Coloradoans out of a job, and the state’s economy would be weaker.
Well, now they’ve gone and done it. It’s not law yet, as the proposals still have to be considered by the state senate. But the Democrat-controlled Colorado House just passed 4 gun control measures on Monday that addressed ammunition, background checks and guns in universities:
“The proposed ammunition restrictions limit magazines to 15 rounds for firearms, and eight for shotguns. Three Democrats joined all Republicans voting no on the bill, but the proposal passed 34-31… The House also approved a bill requiring background checks on all gun purchases, including those between private sellers and firearms bought online. Other proposals would ban concealed firearms at colleges and stadiums, and another requires that gun purchasers pay for their own background checks. Democrats eked out the closest vote on the background check measure, which passed on a 33-32 vote.”
If these measures become law, then criminals will be able to add Colorado colleges and stadiums to their list of “gun-free zones.” It would outlaw magazines with more than a 15-round capacity, but the mass murderers will still have access to 30-round or 100-round magazines. Or, he could be more law-abiding and own multiple 15-round magazines and switch them out when he had to. That would just be a minor inconvenience. So, once again, the law won’t prevent mass murders, but will only give criminals bent on mass murder the advantage.

There is no democracy in the United States.
American political life is dominated by one party with two heads, often called the “Republicrats”.
Republicans and Democrats agree on core issues and only argue on technicalities. Obama, who was portrayed as a peaceful saviour in the last presidential elections, has demonstrated during his four years in office that he is not much different from his predecessor.
Nobel “Peace” Prize Laureate Barack Obama’s “war record” is worse than that of George W. Bush; the civil rights of Americans have shrunk further in the last four years and President Obama has shown that that is he is closer to Wall Street than to Main Street.
Mitt Romney and Barack Obama are more of the same on key issues as Glen Ford explains:
To any objective observer, the consensus that exists between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney on the fundamental issues of war and peace, Wall Street’s dominance of American life, and fiscal austerity, has been made crystal clear in the two “debates.” In the absence of effective popular resistance to the duopoly of money, the economic and social crisis fails to create a corresponding political crisis for the rulers. As a result, there is nothing important for them to debate. (Glen Ford, Obama-Romney: The Duopoly Debates Itself)
But how are Presidential debates regulated? The history of the Commission on Presidential Debates sheds light on how and why other parties are excluded from the political debate and kept away from the public’s eyes and ears:
The Commission on Presidential Debates is a private corporation headed by the former chairmen of the Republican and Democratic parties. The CPD is a duopoly which allows the major party candidates to draft secret agreements about debate arrangements including moderators, debate format and even participants. The result is a travesty riddled with sterile, non-contentious arguments which consistently exclude alternative voices that Americans want to hear. (VIDEO : SpartacusMoriarty, The Truth About the Commission on Presidential Debates)
In 2008, while the Republicrats agreed on bailing out Wall Street, ALL other presidential candidates were against this massive institutionalized fraud. Thanks to the Commission on Presidential Debates, Americans were led to believe that the bank bailout was not only inevitable but in the public interest. Americans were not prevented from hearing the dissenting political voices, who were opposed to this odious debt. The same goes for the Republicrats’ Imperial design fueled by “the war on terrorism and regime change, defended by both Romney and Obama as a legitimate “humanitarian” undertaking

From the Sacremento Bee:
The Assembly Friday passed and sent to Gov. Jerry Brown legislation that would prohibit law enforcement officers from detaining undocumented immigrants for federal authorities when they are released from criminal custody, unless they have a history of serious or violent crime.
He and other Democrats said it’s aimed at preventing otherwise non-threatening immigrants to go about with their lives without fear of deportation, while Republicans argued that the effect would be to give criminally inclined illegal immigrants a sanctuary.
The 44-23 vote to send the measure to Brown was strictly along party lines, although some members of both parties declined to vote.
The US government, under the leadership of the globalist puppet, Barack Obama, knows that the general American public is waking up to the tyranny that is being forced upon them. The divide and conquer ideal purveyed by the mainstream media (MSM) in America may be the second false flag that coerces us into having a “civil war” before the November 2012 elections.
Obama has amassed a “legion of lawyers” to flood the court system with support should problems arise from the voting process. The preparatory process alludes to the fact that they anticipate a problem with the voting.
The electronic voting booths are being pushed in time for the 2012 presidential election season as a way to answer to potential issues brought on my mail-in ballots by overseas Americans and US armed forces service members.
A report by Counting Votes 2012 says that electronically submitted ballots cannot be independently audited and are prone to being hacked. Additionally, electronic voting leaves nothing to recount in a dispute.
Pam Smith of the Verified Voting Foundation explains: “They’re trying to do a calculus and make it easy for the voter, and they may not realize the great risk they’re putting those votes at.”
The Obama campaign, Obama for America, is suing to restrict the right of military service people to be able to vote 3 days early in Ohio as is allowed by law . The Obama administration believes this law is “arbitrary” and has “no discernable rational basis.”
The National Defense Committee stated : “[f]or each of the last three years, the Department of Defense’s Federal Voting Assistance Program has reported to the President and the Congress that the number one reason for military voter disenfranchisement is inadequate time to successfully vote.”
In 2003, Aviel D. Rubin, technical director of the Information Security Institute at Johns Hopkins University, along with a team of researchers showed that electronic voting systems software from Diebold Election Systems had “stunning, stunning flaws.”
These voting booths, equipped with computer-chipped smart cards that could be remotely manipulated quite easily.
In 2010, the District of Columbia set up a fake voting program and encouraged hackers to attempt to corrupt their system. One hacker group was successful in changing the votes, showing that electronic voting systems are easily manipulated.
The online voting option is still a hopeful option as an alternative for the 20% of the 2.5 military voters that would otherwise send in absentee ballots, according to the Military Voters Protection Project .
The globalization of American voting has begun with the purchase of the process to be overseen by a private corporation controlled by SOE software which operates under the name Clarity Elections.
