Abolish the IRS

Last year, the average American had to work 114 days to pay their local, state, and federal taxes. That means that in 2015, four months worth of your hard-earned salary went directly to the government.

My Succeed or Leave Philosophy

In a few weeks, Coloradans will decide which Republican will challenge liberal incumbent Michael Bennet for a seat in the U.S. Senate. I am asking that this person be me. But unlike career politicians, I come from the real-world, where you don’t ask for something and promise nothing in return. So here’s what I’m offering. In my first term, I …
