  • The new NSRF is back!!!!

    Well, we were planning to, but the Tri-County Health Department (http://www.tchd.org/), whose mantra is “Bigger government control over your life is our goal,” using their 1984 playbook has decreed that our meeting is “null and void.” So, until we figure out a way to beat the system, probably with online video meetings, you have our permission to sleep in, or go protest, or sign a recall petition, or do something to irritate the party who values control over everything else. Stay tuned….

    The first 2021 meeting of “the New Forum” is scheduled for this upcoming Saturday morning, February 13, from 9:00am-11:00am.

    We have a NEW LOCATION!

    The meeting will be held at the Americans for Prosperity Office, 1305 West 121st Avenue , in Westminster.  It’s located at the northwest corner of Mariposa & 121st.  See the maps below.

  • Join the NSRF this Saturday morning from 9:00am-11:00am at Amazing Grace Community Church (541 E 99th Place in Thornton) to hear highly sought after author and speaker Loren Spivack.

    Admission is $3 per person, bring a jacket since we’re meeting outside the church (due to the Governor’s executive orders about groups meeting in churches), bring a chair, and a friend or two to hear our engaging speaker.

    Loren will be giving his presentation called ‘Why We Fight, And How We Win In November’, to groups throughout Colorado during the months of September and October. His presentation chronicles just how unprincipled the Left has become and fires up the base just in time for November.

    Please check out Loren’s website www.fmwarrior.com to see samples of his speaking, learn more about his books, and see some of the other great groups that he’ll be speaking with on his upcoming trip out west.

    Loren brings his books (listed below) along in case anyone is interested in purchasing one after his presentation.

    Loren Spivack, “The Free Market Warrior,” was born and raised in Massachusetts and spent most of his adult life in New York City. Before becoming active in politics, Spivack worked for several non-profits and as a management consultant for both profit and non-profit companies.Spivack founded “Free Market Warrior” in 2009 in an effort to make a positive difference in American politics and economics.
    His “Free Market Warrior” store was expelled from Concord Mills Mall in North Carolina in July of 2009 for selling material critical of the Obama Administration.  (Mall owners, Simon Property Group, are major Democratic donors.) Since then Loren has devoted his time to teaching conservative groups about free market economics. He conducts “Economic Literacy” seminars across the United States. So far, Spivack has delivered his famous seminar on “Economic Literacy” to over 200 groups in 20 states.

    Spivack is also the author of “The New Democrat,” a parody history of the Obama administration, based on a famous children’s book.  With pitch-perfect rhyme and clever illustrations, “The New Democrat” transforms the political personalities of our times into cartoon characters in a conservative morality play.

  • By Jackie Mitchell

    In November, Coloradans will vote on whether or not to require statewide voter approval of new state enterprises if the enterprise’s projected or actual revenue from fees and surcharges is greater than $100 million within its first five years.

    To qualify for the ballot, proponents needed to submit 124,632 valid signatures. Of the 196,090 signatures submitted by proponents on July 31, 2020, 138,852 were projected to be valid based on a random sample.

    Enterprises were established through the Colorado Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR) amendment of 1992. Enterprises are government-owned businesses that provide goods or services for a fee or surcharge that is paid for by the individuals or entities that are purchasing the goods or services. Examples of enterprises include the state lottery, state nursing homes, correctional industries, parks and wildlife, public colleges and universities, and the state unemployment insurance program. This is in contrast to government agencies or programs that provide goods or services that are paid for by tax revenue. Enterprises may receive a maximum of 10% of their annual revenue from state and local government sources but are otherwise financially independent from the state government and any local governments. Enterprise revenue does not count toward the TABOR limit. TABOR limits the amount of money the state of Colorado can take in and spend. It limits the annual increase for some state revenue to inflation plus the percentage change in state population. Any money collected above this limit is refunded to taxpayers unless the voters allow the state to spend it.

    In the fiscal year 1993-94, the first year TABOR was in effect, enterprise revenue was $724.3 million. In 2017-18, state enterprises received $17.9 billion in revenue. In total, from 1993 to 2018, Colorado enterprises have received $150.17 billion in revenue.
