Freedom and rights Ballot Initiatives:
Despite having only about 6 people involved with the collection of signatures, we completed the historic ballot initiatives and handed them in November 26th, to the Archuleta County Recorder's office within 10 minutes of closing. We obtained over 6000 signatures on 11 petitions, and, if they county them as required according to past officials, we have more than enough signatures for all 11 to go before the County Commissioners, or to the voters, whichever is necessary. This process may take some time.
It took 6 of us approximately 6 hours to complete all the sorting, compiling, counting, printing and final stapling of these documents. Thanks to all those who helped in this constitutional and liberty-restoring process.
We in Archuleta County, Colorado created 11 ballot initiatives we will be bringing to the Board of County Commissioners, (BOCC) and/or to the voters if the BOCC does not adopt them. Under the Colorado Constitution, We the People have the authority to decide for ourselves locally how we want to govern ourselves.

The TenthAmendmentCenter.com wrote a blog on what we are doing in our area with the Liberty Zone.
The County Commissioners, after some language adjustment, passed the gun rights resolution unanimously in front of a full house, including Sheriff Pete Gonzalez. We will make this available as soon as it is posted. Watch the video HERE!
We are preparing a second, more encompassing resolution that will protect ALL of our constitutionally-protected rights, and will present it within the next 1-2 weeks for their consideration. We will be discussing this at Thursday's meeting.
The County Commissioners have drafted a resolution for 2nd Amendment protection. The BOCC meeting to vote on this will be 4-30-13 at 1:30 PM in Pagosa
Make it a point to spend a little time every week outside the meetings... spending it on liberty and freedom support through educating yourself or others. Use the resources on this website... get the facts on what is happening and be more prepared to help yourself and others.
You can view the Presentation video we did for our area HERE... (We hope to have a better quality video presentation when funds are available, but the essence of the presentation is easily understood).
