The Libertarian Party of Colorado requests that the Colorado Springs City Council apply the principles of liberty and freedom in their upcoming decision. Acting to override the will of the voters and opting instead to continue to force underground the usage, sale, and distribution of a particular substance is a principle of fascism and not liberty. Prohibition does not work and one of the purposes of Amendment 64 was to bring an end to the insanity of stuffing people into cages over the use of a plant. It is not within the constitutional authority of government to continue this barbarism against the people of Colorado.
The Libertarian Party of Colorado urges the council to embrace the changing socioeconomic climate and return the ability of people within Colorado Springs to make their own decisions about what is best for themselves. The people do not need government to act as their care taker or nanny. The people simply need government to defend their rights to life, liberty, and property. All else is beyond the scope of a constitutional republic and has no place in the free market.
It is time to enjoy the benefits of the free market and Colorado Springs has the opportunity to embrace something new and beneficial for the people. Do not allow fear, uncertainty, or doubt to prevent you from representing the principles of freedom and liberty our framers intended for us to embrace with open arms. The Libertarian Party envisions a better future for the people of Colorado through less government intrusion into their lives. Today we ask you to share this vision with us by hearing the will of the voters and removing the obstacles to people making their own decisions.
