In 49 B.C.,
Julius Caesar defied the Roman senate by crossing the Rubicon River to wage
civil war against another Roman—Pompey the Great. By crossing the
Rubicon, Caesar made a decision whereby he could not turn back. He sealed his
“Crossing the Rubicon” means: no way to change, repair or undo your
destiny. Yes, Caesar conquered Pompey, but the Roman senate, along with
Brutus, stabbed Caesar to death. “Et tu Brutus?” Caesar gasped with his
refresher, the term “hubris” equates to “false pride”. Shakespeare wrote about it in King Lear,
Othello and other tragic figures.
DAN MAES AND HUBRIS
illegal and legal immigration wreak havoc in schools, hospitals, communities
and prisons. Colorado suffers 300,000 to
400,000 illegal aliens at a cost of $1.2 billion annually. (Source: www.cairco.org
) Additionally, illegal aliens
kill Colorado citizens at a sobering clip through guns, robberies and drunk
driving. In the past week, a suspected
illegal alien Jose Nevarez-Coronado, caught and released numerous times, killed
a beloved college teacher, Yvonne Frye, in Denver via drunk driving.
RACE FOR GOVERNOR IN
Rocky Mountain State, the Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes follows
his ‘hubris’ toward his ultimate defeat against Democratic candidate John
Hickenlooper. As the polls indicate, it’s not an ‘if’ Maes will lose, but the
fact that he ‘will’ definitely lose in the race for the governor’s mansion.
mistakes in his past, or questions of integrity or lack of experience to tackle
the governorship—Maes hangs by a scant 14 percent of the republican vote while
Hickenlooper runs at over 42 percent. Maes
trails third person candidate and former U.S.
Congressman Tom Tancredo by
double digits. Maes runs so far behind John
Hickenlooper that Maes can’t see the ‘Looper’s’ dust. KHOW radio talk show host Peter Boyles affectionately
calls Hickenlooper by that moniker.

2010 will prove his statement correct. He
cannot and will not win the race. His “hubris”

GREATER THAN A
With the election of John Hickenlooper,
Colorado allows a proven ‘open borders’ and ‘sanctuary policy’ mayor of Denver
the keys to continued lawlessness. With
Denver’s schools suffering anywhere from 48 to 67 percent dropout/flunkout
rates, jackpot babies bankrupting hospitals, free breakfast and lunches for
illegal alien children and overloaded prisons—Hickenlooper’s anticipated
victory promises more of the same.
Maes lost his “hubris” somewhere in his rational mind and by exiting his
emotional mind, Constitution Party candidate and former Republican presidential
candidate as well as proven competent candidate Tom Tancredo would most
definitely win with the votes from Maes moving over to the Tancredo side.

November 2nd, or will he think ahead to future generations and
future Americans that will benefit by Tancredo’s successful run to the
governorship? Will Maes give a 21st
century Shakespeare yet another story to tell?
Or, will Maes think of the good of the people of Colorado?
knows what John Hickenlooper will do to the State of the Colorado; the same
thing he did to the City of Denver—make it friendly to illegal aliens and all
their schooling, medical, housing, jobs and welfare needs—paid for by legal
Coloradan taxpayers. Hickenlooper sides
with Mexico in downgrading and ignoring America’s immigration laws. Hickenlooper through his “Illegal alien sanctuary
policy” will add to the list of Coloradans killed on the streets of Denver—Officer
Donald Young, Dale Englerth, Justin Goodman, the three year old Kudlis, the two
older women also with Kudlis in that Baskin-Robbins ice cream store, and this
week, a beloved Professor Yvonne Frye at Community College of Denver—serving 39
years at that school. Hickenlooper will help
illegals gain jobs over Coloradans.
Hickenlooper will defend their rights over Coloradans rights.
would stop illegal immigration in Colorado and give governors nationwide the
confidence, leadership and courage to enact laws similar to Arizona’s SB
1070. Tancredo would bring honest
leadership to the governor’s mansion that staggers under the current scandals
