Just how messed up is the Colorado Legislature? So messed up that a leading Democrat on the Senate floor called me a “Great American.” Being surrounded by Democrats all the time, I can see how Sen. Chris Romer could make the mistake.
At the well of the senate he said, ”We have thoughtful libertarians like Jon Caldara, great American, who fights hard for the true ability to look at government for what it should be.”
Weeks earlier Romer came to our event on sentencing reform. Excited by our work he publicly wrote a check for a $150 donation to us. He carefully wrote “for sentencing reform work” on the memo section of the check. He asked us for a photocopy of the check to prove to liberals he wasn’t supporting everything we do. I whited-out the memo line and wrote in “for defending the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights” before we copied it to him. Now it’s Romer who is the great American.
