I suggest that if you do this with your own representatives, you do so by certified mail and return receipt, and not electronically. I am of the opinion that emails to representatives, so easy to write and send, are also so voluminous on the receiving end that they are ignored. I am addressing this to Story and Cutter, as they are on the lowest rung of government above cities and counties. I don’t see much power below these two.

Honorable Assembly Members:
My name is Mark Tokarski, and I am a citizen of the United States and of Colorado. I address the following matters to you by means of certified mail, as I sense that electronic communications with your offices go unnoticed, unread, often not even generating automatic electronic replies. Such is the state of representative government that modern communication has rendered the voice of the public mute.
Petition to the Government for Redress of Grievances
The First Amendment to the United States Constitution does not confer, but rather recognizes the existence of certain inalienable rights, among them the right to petition the government for redress of grievances. Inherent is that government cannot simply ignore a citizen exercising that right, otherwise it is nullified, and the words of the First Amendment are a farce. I therefore assert that you as an elected representative must not only read and heed my words, but weigh their importance, and if in agreement must take action to address the grievance.
The First Amendment contains another clause, the right of free assembly. Actions of the state have prohibited public gatherings, sporting events, even church attendance. The justification, that an “emergency” exists is as old as totalitarianism itself, that those who seize power are really protecting us. To gin up this emergency, they have invoked the existence of a dangerous virus. We now see public pronouncements by unelected officials, such as Bill and Melinda Gates, whose credibility must be suspect as neither has studied medicine or stood for election. Their opinions should not matter. Why are they given a high perch?
“Stay-at-home” orders have been issued, though not mandatory or even enforceable without military force. “Quarantines,” backed by force of fines and imprisonment, are a much more serious offense against the public. People wearing masks are a common sight, and distancing at six feet, a comical sight were it not backed by medical quackery, is common as well. Fear is omnipresent, stoked by a dishonest news media feeding the public talk of overflowing hospitals and semi-trucks holding corpses. Such tales are fantastical, as people who have made trips to clinics and hospitals find them infested only with crickets. Members of the news media, bland and mindless teleprompter readers, are hardly a fourth estate, but rather agents of the hoaxers.
A coronavirus, an agent commonly found in our bodies when we have had some sort of respiratory infection (such as exposure, for instance, to nitrogen dioxide, a common part of the trail left behind by passenger jets) is an unimaginably small agent, not alive, not able even to exist except in a cell. It is 120 nanometers, that is, 120 billionths of a meter. 125,000,000 of them would fit on the head of a pin. If present in our bodies we are always both exhaling and inhaling them, and they are not harming us. The idea that we would be worried about them is base fear-mongering, the idea that we should wear masks high comedy, as no piece of fabric of any kind can stop the movement of something so small. That Governor Polis urges (the threat of mandate surely on his dictatorial mind) that we wear masks and stay six feet apart is an insult on the intelligence of the public. Such insults, sadly and due to the power of TV, are working. Governor Polis either knows this and is a dangerous man to have in office or is a man of low intelligence, in either case unfit for office.
Medical spokespersons are now spreading the idea that the Covid-19 virus is both new and monstrous, having a size of .0005 mm (millimeters, not nanometers). This would make it 4,167 times larger than an ordinary coronavirus. This is a lie. It is being told to justify face masks. They stop at nothing and are encumbered by no sense of morality.
We’ve been overrun now with a deliberate fear campaign that has crashed our economy, put millions out of work, and prevented us from enjoy basic constitutional freedoms such as attendance at church and baseball games. Given that unelected agents are dictating the terms for restoration of our freedoms, even threatening mandatory mass inoculation (itself a danger to public health), I think it a fair observation that we have undergone coup d’etat, and that fascism has taken hold. We will never be the same.
As always, the only cure is courage to stand tall the face of danger and resist. You as a public official are on call right now. We need a show of courage, the moral kind, even as those who have insulted us with this hoax surely have martial law in their back pocket. We need you to stand up for us. We need for you to make a call to order, to call out a hoax, and be part of a movement to restore representative government.
My question is this: Do you have it in you? Do you?
