About this video

According to United States Declaration of Independence, rights are given to individuals by God, not by governments, and the role of a government is to secure those rights. Douglas Bruce, author of the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights (TABOR) in Colorado, talks about the story of TABOR and the evolution that it went through. He describes the two main powers of government and how the increase of its power decreases the freedom that one can enjoy; he also comments on the idea of voting before any tax rate goes up and how it limits government, empowers the citizens and gives them the right to make a decision based on their own income. Bruce describes the obstacles that TABOR had to face and also mentions the personal consequences that he still goes through today. Bruce's success and sacrifice is the perfect example of when someone decides to fight for the rights that were given by God, not by an institution.
