Territory Days is this weekend in Colorado Springs May 29th – 31st . Thousands of people will be there who can sign the “Right to Health Care Choice” ballot initiative, but most don’t know about it. They will neither know nor sign unless we’re there to tell them. I’m looking for at least 10 volunteers to help circulate petitions and collect 2500 signatures from Colorado registered voters at this huge event. Commit as little as a half hour or as long as half a day.
Can’t make it to Territory Days? No problem, there are plenty of other opportunities to help, even if you’re not in Colorado Springs. Get a petition and gather signatures from friends, family, work or church associates, and neighbors. Time is of the essence, we need all 120,000 signatures by July 1, 2010. This is an effort to protect freedom that requires ordinary citizens to act. It’s easy to do. Get involved now.
If you can help at Territory Days, look for me or other volunteers who can assist you at The Constitutionalist Today newspaper booth #73 in Bancroft Park. Or, email me before Saturday to coordinate getting your petition.
More information on the “Right to Health Care Choice” ballot initiative is at the end of this post.
The “Right to Health Care Choice” Ballot Initiative
Jon Caldara, President of The Independence Institute based out of Golden, Colorado, has written an initiative for the November 2010 ballot titled “Right to Health Care Choice.” If we the people take ownership of this, successfully put it on the ballot and pass it, we will amend the Colorado Constitution and empower Colorado to exercise its 10th Amendment rights specifically against the ObamaCare mandate. In part, the amendment states:
“All persons shall have the right of health care choice. No statute, regulation, resolution or policy adopted or enforced by the State of Colorado, its departments and agencies independently or at the instance of the United States shall require any person to participate in any public or private health benefit plan or system, deny, restrict or penalize the right of any person to make or receive direct payments for lawful health benefit services, nor deny, restrict or penalize the right of any person to purchase and use health insurance products or other health benefit plans or systems legal for sale in any other state where such plans or systems are duly licensed or otherwise qualified and in good standing in the provider’s home state.”
This amendment would free Colorado citizens from ObamaCare’s choking individual mandate effects and make Colorado a sanctuary state for quality health care. It allows Coloradans to opt out of the oppressive health insurance mandates contained within ObamaCare, because we would not be forced to participate in any health insurance plan, nor would we be penalized for paying cash for health care.
What You Must Do Now
Right now both petition circulators and donations are urgently needed to help gather 120,000 signatures by July 1, 2010. That’s just over 30 days away. Join me and help collect these signatures so that in November we can vote to protect Colorado’s freedom.
To become a circulator, contact The Independence Institute today, and they will get forms and instructions to you. If you are in the Pikes Peak region and want a petition right away, I have some, contact me at Mom4Freedom@ymail.com.
To donate to the ballot initiative campaign (and any amount helps), go to The Independence Institute donation page here.
We Can Make Colorado a Health Care Sanctuary
Together, we can make Colorado a health care sanctuary. But it requires your involvement today.
At this critical juncture in history, freedom is crying out and needs a tenacious defense. It’s up to you and me to take ownership of our state and save freedom. We can protect her if we act with determination now. Your personal involvement will ensure that Colorado remains a leading voice for freedom and a prosperous, free-market health care state.
We have a very short window of opportunity to keep Colorado free from the choking effects of ObamaCare.
Let’s make it happen.
