definition - "the condition of being free; the power to act or speak or think without externally imposed restraints."



First, Foremost, and Before anything else....I am a Patriot; an American; and a Coloradan! Colorado, we must find new leaders. Leaders who possess the right skill set to be our leaders. Leaders who want to be held accountable; Leaders who will seek out and take responsibility for their actions; Leaders who will work for the people; Leaders who will provide solutions for the people; Leaders who won't flagrantly waste taxpayer dollars; and leaders who have integrity, intelligence, energy, and passion. I believe, based on my background, experiences, and accomplishments, I am the most qualified and competent leader to move Colorado forward. I have a leadership education from WEST POINT; The Purpose of the United States Military Academy is to provide the Nation with leaders of character who serve the common defense. I have practical military knowledge and experience serving as a US Army officer; I have numerous accomplishments as an entrepreneur; I have several years of business experience as a small business owner; and lastly, I have a background in finance with real life experiences as a professional money manager. Colorado, we need to fix the economy and everything else will fall into place. We will accomplish this by getting jobs back into our state; ending the spending; balancing our budget; paying down our out of control debt; and then positioning Colorado for the opportunities of tomorrow. In order to move Colorado forward, we absolutely must discuss the real issues of improving Colorado's cash flow and budget, education, healthcare, immigration, infrastructure, and banking in Colorado - not act like they don�t exist.

My Goals as Governor of Colorado:

      1) Provide new Leadership through critical, deep, independent thinking.

      2) Turn Colorado's economy around by focusing on sound financial principles used in the private sector.

      3) Solve problems and improve Colorado at the state level without intervention from Washington.

      4) Restore confidence and trust in our leaders amongst the people we are suppose to be representing.

...."that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain -- that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." - Excerpt from the Gettysburg Address, noontime November 19, 1863
 



"When a thing is done, it's done. Don�t look back. Look forward to your next objective." - General George Marshall

Fix Colorado's economy and everything else will fall into place. Entrepreneurs and businesses create jobs!!!! We need to be partnering with entrepreneurs, entrepreneurial companies, and businesses of all sizes to create jobs for all Coloradans - not running these companies out of our great state!! Colorado, if we have a strong economy, then we will have the money to improve education, healthcare, and infrastructure for all Coloradans. Colorado has a naturally diverse economic state from energy to biotech to tourism. We can build on this; however, we can do better given the resources that our great state has naturally provided for us. Colorado, we cannot produce lasting wealth creating jobs in the frontier industries of tomorrow by spending our way into massive budget deficits that result in stock piles of debt; or by passing overly burdensome environmental legislation for Colorado's vast and enormously profitable energy and natural resources industries. This does not create wealth or net worth, just as it would not for a business or an individual. You create wealth and net worth by saving and investing. That is how business, economics, and finance work. The laws of finance, business, and economics do not cease to exist because you are a "government". Specifically, here is what we must do to improve on what we already have - and at the same time - get Coloradans back to work.

      1) Get energy and natural resources firms back to Colorado! = jobs, jobs, jobs! 

        How: By repealing the anti-drilling anti-business legislation put into place by Colorado's last Governor.

      2) Get profitable viable entrepreneurial businesses back into our state = more and more jobs!

        How: By emphasizing Colorado's great quality of life; by informing employer's that Colorado has the most educated, healthy, fit workforce in the nation (i.e. lower healthcare costs per employee); by having the most favorable business and personal tax structure in the union; by continuing the advancements in the alternative energy sector; and by actively and vigorously recruiting firms to headquarter here in Colorado.

      3) End the spending = less government.

        How: Budget and pay cuts across the board; and not spending $200,000 on personal family photos!!

      Simply completing steps 1, 2, and 3 will allow us to balance the Colorado budget. Then we can:

      4) Start to pay down our unsustainable debt level = less government.

        How: Only spend what we make, and nothing more. Just like your family or personal budget - there is absolutely no difference if you are a "government."

      5) Position Colorado for the opportunities of tomorrow = jobs, jobs, jobs!

        How: By getting back to our state's rights! The federal government is too big, intrusive, and incompetent. Here are the general areas that can be governed much more effectively at the state level:

        1. The Budget: For a solution focus on creating a "positive cash flow" for Colorado!!!!!

      How to balance Colorado's budget and pay down our out of control debt:

      1) 10% across the board reduction in pay for the Governor's staff. This will not solve the budget crisis as a standalone cut, but leading by example is what leadership is all about.

      2) 1% across the board reduction in the following general areas: health care, higher education, and K-12 schools. I know this is a highly sensitive and potentially divisive issue; however, with the situation we are currently in, there aren't any other viable, realistic, and implementable alternatives. With the proper oversight and cooperation this decision will be completely undetectable to students, faculty, and the quality of education received. Sort of like a family budget. Once you are use to your own budget, saving and investing the difference is easy as 1-2-3.

      3) 2% across the board reduction in the following general areas: Corrections, Human Services, and Other (mostly from this bureaucratic albatross I am sure).

      Coupled with the savings above, here are my revenue ideas for the state of Colorado:

      1) Undo the disastrous anti-business anti-competitive anti-drilling measures imposed by Governor Ritter (D) on the energy and natural resources industries.

      2) Return Colorado to a pro business state recruiting and encouraging all companies from a diverse variety of industries to headquarter here in Colorado.

      Goal for Colorado: To be #1 in budget surplus per capita in the union.

      "The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." - Cicero 55 BC

        2. Education: For a solution focus on letting "teachers be teachers"!!!!

      It is good that Colorado made the final 16 in the "Race to the Top" contest for federal education funds. However, we can do better Colorado! In the first round we finished 14 out of 16 beating out only New York and Washington D.C. In the second round we finished 17 out of 19. This just simply is not good enough. I am not against unions. However, teacher unions must compromise on some issues relating to pay, tenure, and performance. Not discussing these issues is hurting our quality of education. We absolutely have to address tenure, teacher pay, and unjustifiably retaining incompetent teachers. Otherwise, we will get more of the same - closed schools (Manual High, 2006), closed libraries (all four in North Aurora, 2010), and no return of tax dollars we are sending to Washington. It is important to note that I am the only candidate for governor that has brought attention and awareness to the shortsightedness of closing the aforementioned libraries - all in North Aurora. I currently have a plan in place to reopen at least two of these libraries - one as a computer learning center, and the Mission Viejo location as if it never closed!

      Goal for Colorado: To be #1 in the union with a 40% + college graduation rate.

      "There Can Be No Thought of Failure." - Dwight D. Eisenhower

        3. Healthcare: For a solution focus on "cutting the cost of healthcare" for all Coloradans!!!

      I am against Obamacare!!!! Cover Colorado already addresses most of the issues (including pre-existing conditions) covered in the new federal legislation known as Obamacare. Whose interests were our elected officials representing when they voted for this bill - the people of Colorado, or the interests of their political party? Hard to say our elected officials were representing our interests when we already have a very good healthcare system in place. To make it better: increase the visibility and ease of use of Health Savings Accounts (HSA) to all Coloradans; allow insurance to be sold across state lines (increasing competition); tackle tort reform and Medicare/Medicaid fraud head-on (manual labor sentences for those found guilty of fraud); lastly, make illegal immigrants pay into the system they are using (not doing so is what is bankrupting the system).

      Goal for Colorado: To operate the Colorado healthcare system in the black.

      "There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him." - Robert Heinlein

        4. Immigration: For a solution focus on "doing something"!!

      This is almost entirely a federal issue. The Governor of Colorado can ensure that our laws and Constitution are enforced in regards to the illegal immigrants that are already here in Colorado. As the Governor of Colorado that is what I will do.

      Goal for Colorado: To provide a workable implementable agreeable solution.

      The Constitution of the United States...."its only keepers, the people." - George Washington

        5. Banking: For a solution focus on Colorado small businesses!

      I am vehemently and passionately against the Wall Street bailouts & bonuses, GM and Chrysler bailouts, and bailing out irresponsible homeowners. It is wrong, has not worked, and will not work. We should be rewarding savers, investors, and hard workers not punishing them. We should give tax breaks, credits, and/or other incentives to banks and institutions that lend to and promote Colorado small businesses, Colorado families, and Colorado individuals.

      Goal for Colorado: To promote growth and prosperity for Colorado and all Coloradans.

      "If you are not free to choose wrongly and irresponsibly, you are not free at all." - Jacob Hornberger (1995)
        
       



1. Energy for Education. We can do both! Colorado has a huge amount of energy and natural resources. Energy profits and protecting the environment are not mutually exclusive - just ask Alaska ($6B state surplus) and Texas ($10B state surplus). We should be partnering with energy companies, not chastising, punishing, and running them out of our state. By partnering with energy firms Colorado can develop a viable, lasting, and highly profitable alternative energy sector by utilizing the profits generated by oil, natural gas, and clean coal to fund our already vibrant alternative energy industry. Furthermore, we can use the proceeds of these very profitable energy resources to fund education and health care improvements for all Coloradans, infrastructure improvements all over Colorado, balancing the budget, and paying down Colorado's totally out of control debt.

2. Fix the I-70 ski weekend traffic debacle immediately. Our citizens and out of state visitors and tourists deserve better!

      a. Allow I-70 traffic to flow with three West bound lanes (one East bound lane) in the am, and three East bound lanes (one West bound lane) in the pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
      b.During these times no "truckers" will be allowed on I-70.
      c.Allow patrons to use the frontage roads monitored and controlled by local law enforcement officers.
      d.Establish a well known quick response accident reporting hotline so patrons can quickly report accidents so tow trucks can quickly remove the wreck from traffic.
      e.Emphasize to patrons with road signs how one wreck can cause traffic to back up for hours and hours. Go the speed limit and everyone wins!

3. Sleepovers at The Governor's Mansion - No more homeless Coloradans in Denver! When I am elected Colorado's 42nd Governor I will not reside at the Governor's mansion. This would be inappropriate given the number of homeless people (many Service Veterans) without a home. My pledge to all Coloradans is this: Sleepover at the Governor's Mansion and donate the proceeds of the nights stay to your favorite "Colorado" charity. This program is also available for charity fundraisers, business lunches and/or dinners, weddings, private party events, Etc!!!! Mi casa es su casa!!

1) Leadership education from WEST POINT
2) Practical military knowledge and experience as a United States Army officer.
3) Numerous accomplishments as an entrepreneur.
4) Several years of business experience as a small business owner.
5) Background in finance with real life experiences as a professional money manager.

"Interest is not enough. You have to have passion." - Robert Mondavi

The Governor of Colorado is the CEO of the state.  I believe that I have the required skill set to lead Colorado forward. I am the only candidate that has numerous years in the private sector - specifically in three areas: entrepreneurship, business, and finance. Colorado, we need an entrepreneurial minded fiscal conservative business person with a finance background as Governor of Colorado in order to slash spending, reduce our debt, balance the budget, and get businesses hiring and growing again. We need to do this right now! We cannot wait another 4 years. Based on my applicable qualifications, experience and background, I believe that I am the best leader for Colorado during these tough economic times.

The Governor of Colorado is the Commander in Chief of the Colorado National Guard. I am the only candidate with prior military experience and a leadership education from WEST POINT. The Purpose of the United States Military Academy is to provide the Nation with leaders of character who serve the common defense. Our nation is at War. The Colorado National Guard is serving, and God help us, dying in this War. Colorado is one of the largest employers and home to numerous military personnel. Colorado, we need someone with prior military experience and expertise in the Governorship to ensure we are doing all that we can for our fellow Coloradans - those who live, work, and call Colorado home.

"Such a politician might not win, but he or she will be respected. Actually, let me amend that. Any politician who can communicate strength, originality, and a vibrant humanity - and who has the confidence to celebrate the occasional Turnip Day - probably will win....and so will we." - Joe Klein, Politics Lost



I have been a proven Patriot, American, Coloradan, Leader, and Winner my whole life. Colorado needs a leader to make the right decisions right now. Colorado needs a winner to remain the best state in the union leading America in education, healthcare, entrepreneurship, business innovation, and home to the most spectacular skiing and snowboarding areas in the world!

A proven leader at WEST POINT, graduating with honors as a Distinguished Wreath Recipient - marking high achievement in academics, military, and physical fitness. Received a BS degree in Business Management & Systems Engineering. WEST POINT exists to produce leaders of character for our nation. The Purpose of the United States Military Academy is to provide the Nation with leaders of character who serve the common defense.  Proving the worthiness and competence of this American institution was most recently marked by Forbes Magazine ranking WEST POINT the #1 College in America (Y 2009).

A proven leader in the US Army, leading a combat ready Armored Scout Platoon of 30+ soldiers equipped with M1A1 tanks and Bradley Fighting Vehicles. As a US Army officer I received numerous awards, and noteworthy accomplishments including top scores on field maneuvers, gunnery, and my entire platoon's physical fitness.

A proven leader in the private sector, owning and operating my own business, Clark Brothers Investments (o/ Clark Bros, Inc.), which I alone started from scratch on August 31, 2005. Starting, owning, and operating my own company during the worst decade for the stock market in the history of the United States (including the Civil War era and the 1930's) is by far my biggest accomplishment. In addition, this was done during a time period when the US government has been using my tax dollars - both personal and business - and giving it directly to my competition (referencing the Wall Street bailouts).

A proven leader in the investment community, working in numerous areas of finance to include: investment and portfolio management, the insurance industry, estate planning, financial planning, institutional equity, private equity, venture capital, as well as several entrepreneurial start up ventures - Sunset Shores, Inc., APlaceForMom.com, Ranek's Gym & Sports Training, USA Computer Link, and Clark Brothers Investments.

"The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionable integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it's on a football field, in an army or in an office." - Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th President of the United States of America



My job specific experiences for Governor of Colorado are as follows:

I have an extensive entrepreneurial, business, and financial background. I know what entrepreneurs, small businesses, and businesses of all sizes from a variety of industries need from the government of Colorado to be highly innovative profitable tax generating entities for our state. When I started Clark Brothers Investments in 2005, I recognized that Wall Street was biased, greed driven, and would eventually fail - as it did referencing the Wall Street bailouts. This is why I started Clark Bros. - to be a truly Independent financial services firm that has a business model that would allow us to always act in the best interest of our clients (i.e. the people).

I have a leadership education from WEST POINT with practical military experience. This is a must for a Governor in charge of the Colorado National Guard in a time of War. Coloradans are fighting and dying in the War in the Middle East. We must recognize this selfless service, honor the fallen, and take care of our wounded warriors. Additionally, the domestic pressure to suppress, uncover, and incarcerate home grown radical Islamofascist terrorists has never been greater.

I have spent my entire private life after military service in the finance sector. An acute and practical real life understanding of finance, economics, and numbers is absolutely essential during the worst recession in America's history since the Great Depression. During these trying times it is essential that Colorado elect a Governor who understands all aspects of finance so we can balance the budget, pay down our out of control debt, and position Colorado for the economic opportunities of the future.

"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt, 26th US President
