Chandler, Arizona, [Oct. 11, 2012]- Libertarian U.S. Senate nominee Marc J. Victor made the most of his obviously curtailed participation in the Senate debate Wednesday night with several critical remarks directed at the supposed “libertarian” record of Republican Rep. Jeff Flake.
In a statement released today, Mr. Victor said, “I may not have been
treated as equally in the debate as my opponents, but that leaves me in
very good company. Ron Paul, Gary Johnson and Judge Jim Gray, have all
suffered attempts by the statist quo (not a misspelling) to silence them
as they fought to bring the message of real limited government and
personal freedom to the American people.
That aside, when I do get an opportunity, I will highlight the
fallacy of Jeff Flake’s libertarian record. Mr. Flake has a terrible
record on personal freedom and limited government with votes for the
Patriot Act, FISA and NDAA.” Mr. Victor continued, “I personally can’t
understand how he can be a member of the Republican Liberty Caucus,
which, according to their website http://www.rlc.org ,
‘oppose government excess and demand accountability to the people and
the Constitution’, yet he votes for suspension of habeas corpus and
against the 4th Amendment of the Constitution.
As I said during the debate, I believe that Barry Goldwater Senior,
for whom the Goldwater Institute was named, and where Mr. Flake was
previously the Executive Director, must be turning in his grave over
votes like these. Mr. Flake is not a Libertarian nor a libertarian.” Mr.
Victor continued, “Representative Flake is a hawkish conservative who
votes to give the government the power to circumvent due process and the
rights and freedoms of citizens’ in direct contradiction to the
