About Colorado

Some Trump supporters are crying foul after Ted Cruz walked away with all of Colorado's delegates. Sorry, friends, he followed Colorado's rules and did it perfectly fairly (as far as I know at this point.)

This does make it look a bit fishy.

If you don't like how the Colorado Republicans run their party, follow the lead of Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams and boycott the state. (Springsteen cancelled a concert in North Carolina and Adams cancelled on in Mississippi.) Don't book trips to Colorado. Don't buy things online from Colorado stores. Don't do business with Colorado-based businesses.

Here's a list of some Colorado-based restaurants and other businesses that may have products available in local stores or may even have an outlet near you:

  • Boston Market
  • Noodles & Company
  • Red Robin
  • Smashburger
  • Qdoba Mexican Grill
  • Quizno's
  • Re/Max International
  • Dish Network
  • Western Union
  • Otterbox
  • Samsonite
  • Celestial Seasonings
  • Jolly Rancher
  • Coors
  • Odell Brewing Company
  • Crocs
  • Waterpik

Granted, a lot of these companies are probably run by Democrats who neither know nor care what the state's Republican party is doing, but do you think that Springsteen asked ticket buyers if they supported the law or not before he decided not to show?

Don't go. Don't buy. Be sure to mention every non-purchase on Twitter or Facebook. If you're actually going so far as to cancel travel plans to Colorado, be sure to tweet the news to the CO GOP and let them know they're the reason.

It's not about what's fair, it's about who's the loudest.
