We can all agree that the Californians and Texans need to stay out. I'm tired of seeing these out of state tags clogging up our street and filling up our parks and open space.

Don't agree with that one bit. The US is a free country which means citizens can move about as they please. It sounds like a country under communist reign might be better suited for you and what you're after.

Colorado is a purple state. Most of us are Independents.

That's why my phone rings every night from somebody wanting to query or sway me.

Hopefully, on Nov 7, it will stop.

I've been here since 1986 (from SoCal), and, YES, I think that Colorado has definitely become more liberal, although I don't know the reason, except that, of course, there are now more liberals her than conservatives, at least in the more urban areas. Hickenlooper won back in 2011 because, imo, he came across as being both a honest "man of the people" and a moderate Democrat, but once in office, he became more and more liberal, although I think (again, imo) that was due both to the Hispanic and to the Democrat party influence on the national level. Also, imo, he and Obama were two of a kind -- winning the Independents/Unaffiliated (like me), and then showing their true colors.

(I voted for both Obama and Hickenlooper the first time, but not the second. (I voted for a third party POTUS candidate in 2012, and declined to vote at all for governor in 2014.)

I don’t agree with this at all. In fact, I find this type of thinking to be idiotic. My family moved to Colorado before it was a state and I don’t own it any more than the guy who moved here yesterday from LA or Houston.

Most of the CA-haters will easily say "Yes". I say no, and I'm not from CA, or have any connections to there.

Regardless, the state has plenty of hard-core reich-wingers, and libertarian-types. It's myth to say CO is overwhelmingly "liberal".

Vivid example of the fervent pro-CO, anti-CA/TX small-mindedness and pettiness displayed by the worst of residents.

People from around the US should take note of this attitude. "Outsiders" and visitors can attest to the stench of this mentality. It's similar to anti-foreigner sentiment at the national level, and gives ring to the phrase "ugly Americans".

Not anymore than when all the Texans arrived in the 70s and 80s.
All they have accomplished was raise the rents and land prices.

Are they taking jobs from you? Or adding to the economy?
