Republican candidate for Governor, Bob Beauprez, is out with a new commercial claiming he will defend individual liberty and constitutional rights.
Sadly, during his time in the US house of Representatives, Bob Beauprez voted for multiple assaults on our liberties under the bill of rights including: allowing warrantless wiretapping, indefinite detention of accused prisoners, allowing hearsay evidence at trial. He even voted to allow the FBI to continue to collect your personal records, including fire arms sales, without informing you!
Bob Beauprez has claimed that it is the job of government to force its citizens to be “responsible” and buy health insurance. He even went so far as to compare those who choose not to purchase insurance to someone who walks out of the grocery without paying for his items.
“The good news is that liberty is popular! The bad news is that, for many candidates, liberty is a slogan for a campaign commercial,” said RLC Colorado Chairman Earl Bandy. “It is indefensible for a man who has supported the worst offenses against personal freedom, of both the political left and the political right, to claim that he will defend liberty. Bob Beauprez’s ‘Liberty’s Promise’ is an empty promise.”
