Colorado, with its nine electoral votes, is one of the key battleground states in the race for the White House.
It’s one of 10 states that political intelligence expert, Robert Williams, says is still up for grabs.
“Colorado may ultimately be decided by the cannabis crowd,” says Williams, who just released a shocking investigation into the secret affairs of America’s highest elected officials.
Medical marijuana is legal in Colorado under state law.
Considering that the Obama Administration has ambitiously sought to close dispensaries in the state, Romney could conceivably steal the nine electoral votes by staying neutral on the issue.
A total of 47 of Colorado’s medical marijuana dispensaries have now been closed since Obama’s federal crackdown began in January, which hands Romney a golden opportunity to lasso the state.
“Staying neutral” simply means allowing the state to decide for itself whether the use of marijuana is legal or not.
Such a reality would require Romney to soften his conservative views on pot, though. Romney’s on record as saying…
“Having legalized marijuana is, in my view, an effort by a very committed few to try and get marijuana out in the public and ultimately legalize marijuana.
“It’s the wrong way to go. We need less drugs and I would oppose the legalization of marijuana in the county.”
But since the issue in Colorado regards only prescription use of marijuana, Romney could win the pro-cannabis vote by simply letting state law reign supreme.
Every last vote is vital for Romney, who must overcome the negative sentiment concerning his wealth.
Colorado, like most states, has seen its average household income decline over the last few years.
By virtue of that, Romney will undoubtedly take extra care to move the focus away from his gaudy net worth of around $250 million.
The same goes for his running mate, Paul Ryan, whose net worth exploded by as much as 130% during a decade marred by one of the worst economies in history.
“It’s absolutely stunning,” says Williams.
“What Ryan accomplished during a decade devastated by a deep economic recession is virtually impossible. He must have been playing with a loaded deck.”
Williams just released the shocking results of his investigation into the secret affairs of the nation’s most prominent legislators.
While the investigation exposes – at times, even embarrasses – D.C.’s top brass, Williams admits that even he’s surprised by the findings…
“I now know things that very few Americans know. Shocking things. It’s scary, actually.
“Nobody realizes how many secrets the government is hiding from the American public.”
According to the U.S. Information Security Oversight Office, the number of new secrets (designated as such by the U.S. government) rose 75% from 1996 to 2009.
Over the same period, the number of documents referring to those secrets skyrocketed by a factor of nearly 10 – from 5.6 million to 54.7 million.
The United States presently has over 2.3 million national secrets (designated as such by the government over the last 10 years).
“Secrecy is spreading like an infection on democracy, and it’s going to affect the outcome of the election if we’re not careful,” says Williams.
Big government, big secrecy and big corruption walk hand-in-hand through presidential administration after presidential administration. Lately, the corruption is bleeding into the candidates personal checkbooks.
If elected, Romney would be the richest president in history.
While it’s not unusual for a president to be wealthy, we’re seeing a profound shift in the way the wealth is being amassed.
Throughout history, the fortunes of American presidents have been tied to the economic eras in which they lived.
But in the last few years, the performance of the economy is virtually insignificant. The money keeps rolling in, regardless. It defies all logic.
“If the American people can’t find out exactly what their elected officials are up to, then their elected officials are likely up to no good,” says Williams.
Roughly 854,000 people presently hold top-secret security clearances.
More ominous still, 33 building complexes have been built in (and around) the Capital Beltway over the last 11 years for top-secret use.
Williams spent 10 months inside of Capitol Hill exposing important secrets and pinpointing exactly where all the corruption evidence was buried.
Although the high-profile targets of the investigation would certainly have preferred to keep the findings buried, Williams isn’t breaking any laws by releasing this information to the public.
Besides, such shocking information should never be hidden from Americans. Especially when we’re all being asked to make an informed decision in November.
The United States Presidential Election is Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
