Liberty Toastmasters: Is There a Right to Violate Rights?

One of the most profound and far-reaching effects of the American Founders was their recognition and acknowledgment of “inalienable rights.” Inalienable rights are universal, regardless of time, place, or government. All people, everywhere, in every situation, have these rights. These rights include “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” However, the Founders were keenly aware that having a right and freely exercising that right are situational.

Does the Canadian government have the right to deprive its people of liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Do various governments and agents have the right to impose lockdowns, mask mandates, vaccination mandates, and other regulations that take away personal liberty and happiness? Is there any situation where it is ok to violate or take away inalienable rights?

Kim and members of Liberty Toastmasters Denver and Liberty Toastmasters North (Rick Rome, president of Liberty Toastmasters Denver, Terri Goon, president of Liberty Toastmasters North, Anthony Hartsook, Dave Walden, Bill Vetter, Greg Morrissey, Marshall Dawson, and Jeffrey Reeves challenge the notion of whether or not there is a right to violate rights.

Bill of the Day HB22-1071, Damages In Class Actions Consumer Protection Act

Bill summary:

The bill states that in a class action under the “Colorado Consumer Protection Act”, a successful plaintiff may recover actual damages, injunctive relief allowed by law, and reasonable attorney fees and costs.

HB22-1071, Damages In Class Actions Consumer Protection Act is sponsored by State Senator Robert Rodriguez and State Representative Stephen Woodrow, both Democrats. Woodrow, who was appointed to fill Chris Hansen’s seat in 2020, is a plaintiff’s class action lawyer. At the time of his appointment, Woodrow claimed his priorities were “education funding, the environment, and addressing the state’s strict limits on taxation.” It appears his priorities have shifted to promoting legislation that could benefit his line of work. Rodriguez is the state senator that convinced the Democrat Party committee to appoint Woodrow to Hansen’s vacant seat.

Shayne Madsen gives further insight into the problems with HB22-1071 in an article at Complete Colorado.
