Millions will be spent this fall to convince The People of Colorado that the major party candidates are slightly different from one another. I want to be able to get our Libertarian message out there so we can show people what different really means.

If you'd like to help me do that please consider making a contribution.

Money and power fuel the fire of government. When a fire is out of control the last thing you want to do is throw on more fuel.

There is very little evidence to demonstrate that government does anything well. Giving it more authority and money will only aggravate the situation.

The innocent should never be punished for the actions of others. Laws will never fix all of the problems of society. Only by showing love and understanding in a peaceful manner will resolutions be reachable.

When a person claims to be for smaller government and then says the kinds of things that were said in this interview you know that claim of supporting smaller government has a large credibility gap. Freedom for people who think as I do but not for those who disagree is not real freedom. It's just putting the boot of tyranny on a different foot.

The overriding question in the election this fall isn't what color the state will be. The question is why color matters when the actions, that are destroying our nation, are color blind.

Repealing the state income tax gives everyone an instant ~5% raise in take home pay. They can spend, donate, and save that money as they see fit. That's the only kind of stimulus that works.

The city of Lakewood has passed ordinance O-2014-14 banning electronic cigarettes.

A ban is a juvenile method for handling a social issue in which government has no business getting involved. Next month the city council plans to build a clubhouse and ban any member of the public from entering unless they have had their cootie shots.

Seriously, stop banning stuff.

Thankfully, we do not have the government we deserve. Now we must work towards being worthy of less government than we have.

This brought tears to my eyes ...

The ticket was fake. This man and the store owner were in on this together. They had seen this homeless gentleman on the streets for a few months and then decided to help him him out.

Please SHARE this video with everyone and hopefully it will inspire some folks to help others. We need more people like this... God Bless them.

I'll take a roadless out of the way town any day of the week over a city like New York which tries to control what you drink, what you eat, and how you live.

Don't mindlessly march to the beat of your political parties' drum. If consistency, logic, and common sense are among your core values you just eliminated the major party platforms as options for you.
