Press Conference on Campaign Finance Reform Legislation Announced

Representative Joe Gruters (R) D-73 will be holding a press conference on Wednesday December 6th, 2017 at the state capitol to discuss his Campaign Finance Reform Legislation (HB 43). Senator Greg Steube (R) D-23 has filed the companion bill in the Senate (SB 122).

This legislation would prohibit Political Committees (PCs) and Electioneering Communications Organizations (ECOs) from making contributions to each other.

Why is the GOP folding a winning hand on health care reform?

One thing that never ceases to amaze is the Republican Party’s uncanny ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

When the Democrats have control of the levers of power they work ruthlessly to get their agenda passed, even if it means using arcane budget rules to pass a health care bill with a simple majority in the Senate, the contents of which were so secret we were told they would have to “pass the bill to see what was in it”.

What is the best path forward electorally for liberty in 2018 and beyond?

This past Saturday I sat in on an interesting session at FreedomFest in Las Vegas. It was entitled “What will it take to win in 2018, 2020 – and beyond?”, and the panel was populated by several notable libertarian figures, one of whom was Nick Sarwark, the Chair of the Libertarian Party (LP).

Section III: Campaign Data

Section IV: The Liberty Compact

I pledge to the citizens of the Jurisdiction and State I am seeking a position in that as their elected representative I will work to:

Restore liberty, not restrict it; shrink government, not expand it; reduce taxes, not raise them; abolish programs, not create them; promote the freedom and independence of citizens, not the interference of government in their lives; and observe the limited, enumerated powers of our Constitution, not ignore them.

The candidate must sign and date the Liberty Compact for it to be valid. I understand that typing my name and the date above constitutes a legal signature.
