*Pre-Meeting “Debate” 6-7PM

Political Mock Debate (Open to All!) Rescheduled!

Are you a defender of freedom wishing to enhance your communication skills when it comes to promoting America’s founding principles?

Well there is no better way than to practice! So why not do it with friends before you attempt to make your case to others?

Liberty on the Rocks Denver has rescheduled their first political mock debate for next Wednesday (Jan. 19) to help our members and guests become better advocates for freedom by sharpening their communication skills. The “debate” will be friendly in nature, and will be made up of two teams and two to three judges. Our topic will be whether or not the government should stimulate the economy. The goal is to get members of both teams to consider how they would respond to these principles, as well as how the other side would.

Anyone is welcome to join us for this special pre-meeting from 6-7PM in the back room of Choppers Sports Grill. Whether you’d like to participate as a debater, a judge or a member of the audience – we hope you will attend!

If you would like to participate, please sign up here!

Do Voters Make Rational Decisions at the Ballot Box?

Local Colorado Activists Question Democratic Candidates on Tax Issues

While attending a campaign event for Democratic Gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper along with a few local activists, I became curious about whether the current Mayor was planning to lower our taxes if he was elected to be Colorado’s governor.  After spending about 10 minutes talking about the importance of the economy and helping families who are struggling financially, I thought it was a fair question to ask. So what was the Mayor’s response? To say that we are “…about as low as we can go with taxes.”

Check out the story and watch a video of the Mayor’s response on the new up and coming site Who Said, You Said.

After hearing the Mayor’s response, I perused the local Colorado Spending Transparency site, a project of the Independence Institute, where I (quickly) found a story exposing the fact that over $9 million of the Colorado State budget was spent on a combination of bankcard fees, interest on late payments and a host of other miscellaneous fees and fines. It doesn’t stop there either. Another story shows us that since the beginning of July of this year, $764,024.72 has been spent on advertising for the state. Gee, I wonder what it is they are advertising? Maybe it’s how well they are spending our money? Perhaps Hickenlooper should put an additional clause on his statement reading “…so long as we continue down the path of wasting a good portion of the money that is already coming in…”

Discussing Economic Myths in Denver!

Justin Longo of the Independence Institute and graduate of George Mason University’s economics program, will be joining us this Wednesday to discuss some of the great economic fallacies of our time, which have led to some of the worst public policies enacted by our elected officials.

This will be a great opportunity to learn (or share ideas on what you already know) some basic economic principles that you can put to use when discussing issues such as inflation or the stimulus package with your friends and family.

Get answers to the economic questions you’ve always had, or share your thoughts with the group! The purpose of the discussion is to provide an opportunity for guests to share ideas, learn from one another and really put some thought into the consequences of government manipulation of our economy. We hope you can join us!
