I figured everyone could use this right:

There are many reasons to be positive about Colorado. Our economy is the fastest growing economy in the country. Our mountains and plains are a playground for the adventurous and an inspiration to us all. And our people are innovative, fiercely independent, and resilient. Oh, and the weather's pretty good too.

So to celebrate our amazing state, we're kicking our #WhyILoveColorado campaign into high gear to give people an opportunity to tell the world why they love our state.

It's no secret that we're big fans of Colorado's thriving arts industry and all the talented people who live here. Our talented people are just one of the many reasons #WhyILoveColorado. So when OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder invites you to his house to try to learn a song like "Counting Stars," it's hard to pass up. (Of course, even a truly great singer like Ryan Tedder can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear.)

Check out the video, share it, and then tell us why you love Colorado using the hashtag #WhyILoveColorado.

It's sad but true -- there are people who stand to gain from tearing down Colorado's progress and pitting people against each other. You see that kind of campaigning all over the country. But we're going to do better here.

For the last four years, we've stayed relentlessly positive and worked tirelessly to promote Colorado and our economy. We've gone from 40th to 4th in the nation in job growth and our unemployment has dropped to 5.5% -- the lowest it has been in six years.

So if you love Colorado and think our future is bright, check out this video, share it, and then tell us why you love Colorado using the hashtag #WhyILoveColorado.

You are the heart and soul of this campaign, and we appreciate all you're doing for us and for Colorado.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Real real, friendly. I moved from Tennessee (ugh) to North Colorado in June. I thought Southerners were supposed to be friendly? Not anymore. It's been wonderful.

    Did the research, and kept coming back to Colorado. I've seen the future.

    What is so unnerving about the candidacy of Sarah Palin is the degree to which she represents—and her supporters celebrate—the joyful marriage of confidence and ignorance. SAM HARRIS

  •  It would be nice if Hickenlooper acted like a dem. (0+ / 0-)

    Instead, he seems to be in the pocket of the fracking industry. They don't call him "Frackenlooper" for nothing.

    Well, at least you have legal marijuana!

    •  Hickenlooper getting emission control rules in (1+ / 0-)
      Recommended by:

      effect in Colorado is the Governor acting in the finest traditions of Ed Muskie with the first methane emission control rules for the oil/gas extraction sector in the country.  

      Leadership means getting the oil and gas industry under more stringent regulation.   Just because Hickenlooper does not support a ban or moratorium on hydraulic fracturing does not mean he is any less of a green Democrat.
