We are committed
to the Equal Private Property Rights of the small bar, tavern, and restaurant owners, not mention your right to gather, or
your right to choose. We are working to stop the violations of these rights under the 1st. & 14th. amendments of
the Constitution of the United States of America.
Effective July 1, 2006 a statewide no-smoking ban was implemented,
and cost thousands of Colorado’s favorite bar, tavern, and restaurant owners to suffer great profit losses, and
many will close their doors. We are relying on everyone who believes in the 1st. & 14th. amendments to help support your
favorite bar and restaurant owners, and donate today.
The Coalition of Equal Rights, needs your support in order to fight against this injustice.
"We believe that it is our responsibility as the Coalition
For Equal Rights to help save the "Mom & Pop" tavern and restaurant owners in the state of Colorado,

like for everyone who enters this site to recite the pledge of allegiance to the flag. Then keep in mind the phrase, "And
to the republic for which it stands". Also keep in mind the phrase, "For liberty and justice
for all". Then think about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In a Republic the majority
cannot dictate laws simply because he has more numbers and better funding.(i.e. RWJF vs CER) See link to RWJF funding on web site. This president, (Obama), gave a speech
last June with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in the back ground. He told the American public how important the words
in these two documents were. The only thing wrong was that he was talking about the rights of the terrorists not American
citizens. The HYPOCRISY of government, You can sell and distribute the product, you just cannot use the product anywhere
but your own home. Unless it is divided by a common wall, (i.e. Duplex, Townhome, or Apartment),
then not in your own home. See where Tobacco Taxes go on Web Site
my mission statement in, "What we are doing". Then go to, "How you can help".
