We are a threat, and the reason is that we have not only worked hard, but have taken the time to meet and connect with thousands of individuals across Colorado’s third congressional district and beyond. We have raised more than any independent or third-party candidate to date, and with that we have accomplished so much. And we win people, we win people because we are real, because we actually care, and because we are willing to listen.
Scott Tipton (R), who I am running against is bringing Speaker of the House John Boehner to town for a fundraiser – with just 15 days left until the election and around $2 million in the bank. Why is this so? This is in the same town where he could not find two hours in his schedule for a debate at Fort Lewis College (his alma mater). He can find several hours to hob-nob with the elite, but can’t reach out to his community and the upcoming generation?
The new constitutional voting index (John Birch Society) shows Tipton slipping to his lowest six-month voting record showing yet , at a 70% (a percentage that is not very constitutional or conservative), by voting in the following way:
- #35: (Voted against) encouraging a withdrawal in Afghanistan by reducing funding
- #39: Voted for more FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) funding and the warrantless searches that are conducted by this organization (intrusion of the 4th Amendment)
- #40: Voted to continue funding the federal budget in the red until March 27, 2013 (no talk of how we will continue to fund the obligations of the federal government, and no talk of monetary or drastic changes in fiscal policy to address the erosion of American’s money and wealth)
You see, Scott Tipon is a republican in name only, and what does the Republican party really stand for anymore anyway? It is certainly not small government or constitutional government. It is certainly not for small businesses.
I have been endorsed by the Blue Republican movement, which stands for both conservative and liberal principles that most all Americans can believe in. Sound money, equal opportunity, fair elections, protecting our natural, individual liberties, and constitutional government.
It is time to get rid of the corrupt and crony politicians, and elect statesman, representatives who are willing to term limit themselves and move back into the community that they create laws for.
