If you care about protecting and restoring individual freedoms and responsibilities, vote for Dean Boehler for state Senate. This is a crucial year to vote for people who are like us, not silver-tongued, sleek politicians who have learned how to tell us what we want to hear.
Boehler is a citizen who has the courage to step into public office to change the course our government is heading. Boehlers opponent Ellen Roberts often acts like a RINO Republican In Name Only. She was one of two who voted for the Democrats $20 billion dollar budget but says now she wasnt fully aware of what she was approving.
Her campaign is financed by PACs and special interest groups rather than by individuals. Roberts has a record but it doesnt always line up with what her campaign literature would have us believe about her. She has voted to increase government restrictions of our rights. For instance, in 2008 she voted to shut down all naturopathic practitioners in Colorado who had not graduated from a certain government-approved program. Apparently she thinks the common people are too stupid to choose their own health-care providers.
Rather than voting for another lawyer who is angling to pass yet another bill to strengthen the arm of the state, we need a person who will say no to that. Boehler is a man of character and that counts more than experience for those we entrust with public office.
