No problem for Colorado!  All they have to do is legalize meth, heroine, and crack and they can make up the money. :thud:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

This is what one of my friends in Colorado has to say:

Quote
what a lot of people fail to realize (and the media is not reporting) is that this is a lot bigger than an $80Million hit to the state...

you see, Magpul sourced 90% of it's materials from in-state suppliers... plastics, metals, roto-molding, local trucking company for freight distribution, etc...

the was an article in the Denver Post right around election time (an op-ed ectually...) that put the number of jobs if they kept their word on leaving at between 1500-2000!

That's lost property taxes, sales taxes, incomes at restaurants, grocery stores, etc...

We're seeing the same thing on the Western Slope right now with the closure of the 3 coal mines in Somerset... it's not just the miners that go, it's the railroad workers, etc.. There have over 100 homes listed in the Hotchkiss/Crawford/Paonia/Delta area in the last two weeks alone!!

Ain't no amount of pot gonna make up for what we're losing in this state....
