Stop! (the Supremes) In the Name of Love

The Colorado Supreme Court has trampled our Constitution one too many times…

This is a rogue court, populated with partisan “justices” with no respect for justice or the rule of law. 

This partisan court violated accepted legal practice in ignoring the “findings of fact” of the trial court which heard the case and ruled (correctly) on the unconstitionality of the mill levy tax rate freeze.

The majority on the court is apparently incapable of interpreting the plain language of the Colorado Constitution (including TABOR) which “specifically says voters must approve ‘any new tax, tax rate increase, mill levy above that for the prior year … or a tax policy change directly causing a net tax revenue gain to any district.‘”

The court’s majority is also apparently incapable of interpreting the plainly expressed will of the people, who previously “crushed a ballot amendment [32] in 2003 that would have frozen property tax rates.”

It is time to remind the court’s majorityof their responsibility to the rule of law, the state Constitution, and the will of the people.

Click here to take survey:  Given the repeatedly demonstrated extreme partisan nature of Chief Justice Mallarkey and the majority of the Colorado Supreme Court (renowned as the “most partisan state supreme court in the nation“), would you support an initiative to impeach, or failing that to non-retain, those justices voting to uphold the mill levy tax freeze (resulting in a net tax increase) in violation of the clear wording of the state constitution?
