The office of Governor serves as a check upon the legislature. This check is wasted when this office is held by parties in control of legislature. A third party in this office keeps the other two parties in check.

Like a cancer, a government program must be cut out completely. Trimming it around the edges only delays the inevitable.

The distinctive feature of government is coercion; the use or threat of force to win obedience. This is how government differs from every other thing in a peaceful society. The others persuade while government compels.

A registered Republican told me this last night. "I just can't vote for the Republican candidate". My response was straight forward. "What I tell everyone is that I want to leave them alone". Her response mirrored what I am hearing across Colorado, "I think that's exactly what we need right now".

The unemployment rate is only a topical look at what is going on. For the truth one must dive deeper. Real people aren't seeing signs of a recovery yet.

We need people in public office who don’t want to be politicians or leaders but simply want to enjoy for themselves the freedom America once knew.

One of the reasons people tolerate high taxes and invasions of our liberty is because they hope that government will protect them from criminals and foreign problems but who will protect you when government is the criminal or problem?

If Bob Beauprez wants an "open and honest" debate he can put his money where his mouth is and accept the debate invitation from UNC for September 17th. Right now it looks like his definition of "open and honest" is the same as the definition the Obama or Bush Administrations have operated under. We don't need yet another politician in this office. We need someone who does what he says.
