Amendment 67 is another run at the so-called “Personhood” amendment. Voters have overwhelmingly rejected it twice before, and in 2012 the petition drive to place it on the ballot failed to get enough signatures. But it’s back, and the wording is new and confusing. Don’t be taken in by the new spin; it’s still a ban on all abortions and many forms of birth control. It’s unnecessary and extreme. It goes too far. Vote NO on 67.
Amendment 68 is about greed, giving one company the ability to open a Las Vegas-style casino in the Denver-Metro area. Its promises of school funding and “better education” are sugar coating on something worse than a lemon. More casinos are not the answer to school funding problems in our state. Our public schools deserve better than “sin taxes” that never amount to what their backers promise. And the sin Amendment 68 invites in, and the casino wars it has touched off, should give us all pause. Voters created our existing system of gaming in 3 mountain towns. They shouldn’t undermine it by expanding gambling under a new system for a single casino operator. Vote NO on 68.
With your help, by Voting NO on the Amendments, Colorado may go one election cycle without amending our state constitution. That hasn’t happened in a while.
