They were told it was impossible. They were told it would never happen. But, ordinary citizens, fed up of being ignored and shut out, took a stand and changed Colorado history.
“We’ve done something that’s never been done before, we made 137-years of Colorado history,” said Tim Knight of the Basic Freedom Defense Fund.
“Everybody told us no. We didn’t listen. Everybody told us it couldn’t be done. We didn’t listen to them either. We just went out and did it,” said Jim Brown of the Pueblo Freedom and Rights group.
When the final votes were tallied up, Senator John Morse and Senator Angela Giron were out of a job.
The grassroots organization definitely has the attention of Colorado now, and as word of their success quickly spreads, the nation will hear them too.
Having set a new precedence, Knight said, “Call it the new ‘Morse’ code if you like.”
