My Positions

Defending Our Second Amendment

The Second Amendment is a fundamental right that I will always protect. It’s not about hunting; it’s about safeguarding ourselves, our families, and our nation. I will never vote to infringe upon this right. I myself own 19 firearms, I even reload some of my own ammunition and have taught my three children how to do the same.

Immigration: Secure Our Borders

Joe Biden will have admitted between 12-14 million unvetted foreign nationals into our country by the end of his first (and let’s pray only) term. Along with those illegal entries, we will have lost more than 400,000 kids of military age to synthetic opioids which are manufactured using Chinese chemicals and are shipped into our country by two Mexican cartels. My idea is to finish construction of the Wall, to harshly prosecute the drug dealers who are killing our kids, to financially punish both Mexico and China until the opioid scourge subsides, to increase legal immigration based upon merit (prioritizing doctors, nurses, code writers, etc), and to reform our asylum laws.

My seven-point plan to secure our southern border:

  1. Finish building the wall and seal the border.
  2. Implement a federal death penalty for the drug dealers responsible for dead American kids.
  3. Levy escalating national security tariffs, starting at 50%, on all goods and services (exempting produce) on the two countries responsible for the fentanyl crisis: China and Mexico.
  4. Base all legal immigration (currently ~1,130,000 people per year) on merit. 
  5. Force asylum seekers to apply in somebody else’s country, not at our border.
  6. Defund all sanctuary cities, counties, and states. If municipalities are flouting federal law, they should forfeit all federal dollars.
  7. As law enforcement agencies and officers encounter Joe Biden’s illegal aliens, they should be immediately deported.

Protecting Our Ranchers

Ranchers are essential stewards of our environment, they put food on our tables, but they need our help to keep our ecosystem functioning properly. 39,000 cattle ranchers in Colorado have to put up with predation of livestock. I propose the Rancher Predation Act to provide fair compensation to ranchers for their losses and expedite the process. We can’t afford to let bureaucracy hinder their vital work.

Utilizing Beetle Kill Wood

Our forests are under threat from beetle kill, and we must find innovative solutions. By incentivizing the harvesting of beetle-kill lumber and offering tax breaks for products made with this wood, we can address both environmental and economic concerns.

End Taxation on Social Security Benefits

Social Security is scheduled to go broke in 2032, which will necessitate a 23% reduction in benefits. Many Social Security recipients currently pay taxes on their benefits. I propose to reduce the size and scope of the departments of Energy, Agriculture and “Education”, and to reduce welfare spending by 2% per year for five years, and use the savings to eliminate taxation of Social Security benefits, and to shore-up both the Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds.

Campaign for Common Ground: Bringing Unity to Congress

In today’s divided political landscape, it’s time for a change. I believe we need to bridge the gap and put the people of Colorado first. My first act as your representative will be to meet with every member of Congress, regardless of their party, to discuss our shared priorities and co-sponsor legislation for the benefit of all Americans.

I have drafted a standard Republican unity pledge which requires the losers of the CD-3 Congressional primary to support the eventual winner. We cannot have a repeat of 2022 when Don Coram lost the primary to Lauren Boebert, then immediately endorsed Democrat Adam Frisch. As a party, it is time for the GOP to unite!

Rural Cell Phone Connectivity

Colorado ranks 35th in the nation in cellular connectivity. While traveling the Western Slope, I have a cell signal in less than half the district. New technology expands the range of cellular signals by as much as 400%. One solution includes federal subsidies to build new cell towers and routers.
