The Republican Study Committee of Colorado (RSCC) is a voluntary association of elected Colorado legislators that formulates, supports, and communicates legislative actions and positions consistent with its vision and Declaration of Principles. Modeled after the Republican Study Committee of the U.S. Congress, the RSCC provides long range planning and continuity between legislative sessions, helps identify and prioritize content on issues supported by the RSCC, fosters better coordination with groups that support Republican core issues, and increases the potential for national and state-to-state sharing and coordination of legislative information.

2018 Election - Shock Treatment for Schizophrenia

In this year's election, the people of Colorado soundly rejected all statewide tax and spend measures, and yet they elected politicians who are committed to more taxes and higher spending. This double-minded message is sure to yield some shocking results.

Here is what I expect to see:

The governor-elect is committed to "100% renewable energy." We will never get there, but we may kill off much of the state trying. "100% renewable energy" are code words for driving up the price of energy (gas, oil and electricity) to unsustainable levels and driving the oil and gas industry out of the state (over 100,000 high paying jobs). Utilizing all energy sources in a free market environment is the smart way to go. "100% renewable energy" is currently political, scientific and economic insanity.

Red flag laws will become a reality here in Colorado. This is raw gun confiscation without any due process. Look what it has already done in Maryland.

The government will take over the rest of the medical system and we will be left with taxes we cannot afford and rationed medical care that only works if you don't get sick. The people of Colorado rejected that idea two years ago, but have now elected its advocates. I expect this will be brought in incrementally, but inevitably, unless we stop it in 2020.

Colorado will adopt the California emission standards and the cost of our personal vehicles will go up and up. The Colorado Auto Dealers Association assures us it will decimate vehicle sales (collapsing one more industry in Colorado). This is also overt manipulation of our freedom to drive the cars we think best for our families. SUVs and trucks will be heavily taxed (directly or indirectly) and tiny cars will be subsidized.

TABOR will be attacked again. The tax and spend politicians hate TABOR (the Constitutional Taxpayer's Bill of Rights) and will do all they can to eliminate this restraint on out of control government spending.

I could go on, and on, but I think you get the picture. Maybe the next two years will be the shock treatment Colorado voters need to elect more rational leaders in 2020.

House Bill 1224 is an example of some of the legislature that does not conform with the RSCC principles. RSCC Principles believe in the individual citizen's constitutional rights which includes the second amendment.
