On April 15th, Tea Party activists gathered on the west steps of the Colorado State Capitol in an effort to motivate one another to get involved in the legislative process. Speakers included, Matt Arnold, of Clear The Bench Colorado, Ken Buck, former candidate for U.S. Senate, and John Caldara of the Independence Institute.

I would have had these photos up earlier, but my the Comcast outage just got resolved so I could not upload anything earlier.

This was the 1st Annual Bikers at the Capitol event. On a somewhat gloomy day, various motorcycle enthusiasts gathered on the west steps of the Colorado State Capitol. The purpose of which was to encourage them to learn more about the Constitution and how government works. Especially as it relates to laws that regulate motorcycles.  The Coalition of Independent Riders was 1 of the many organizations that attended this event.

Among the speakers were Peter Boyles. He spoke about a law in Georgia where the police can randomly and selectively pull a motorcycle over and tell the driver to let a car go through. The program is called Fusion and it is financed by grants from Homeland Security. The concept of the program sounds odd and absurd. It could be categorized as discriminatory in the sense that it specifically targets motorcycle riders vs. people who drive other vehicles.

After the event took place, the attendees met with their state senators/representatives.
