The implementation of term limits would be the most important legislative accomplishment to make (3 terms - U.S. Representatives, 2 terms U.S. Senators). The talk of collaboration on Capitol Hill is near nonexistent on legislation that moves beyond naming buildings (USPS) or any other. Sitting members of Congress and the Senate who have served more than 10 years have shown that they aren't willing to work together in a timely fashion and get meaningful legislation passed. Term limits would grant reprieve to the people of this nation by encouraging legislators who are good at their job to pursue other positions and get elected and dismiss those who have not acted in the best interest of society.
The perpetual wars we are fighting are our biggest threat to national security. We are not only creating enemies by creating/participating in wars that we do not belong in but we are also creating financial liabilities that future generations will be liable for. The funds that we are using for these wars should be going to shore up the financial obligations already created (i.e. Social Security and Medicare).

As a Congressman, I would support only fighting wars that have declared by Congress, the only body authorized by the Constitution to declare war.
The U.S.A. should be willing to accept any individual who has the desire to participate in our society. To minimize illegal immigration, we need to emphasize on speed when granting work visas and efficient background checks.

In regards to border security, a wall is a costly expense. We need to work with our neighbors to the North and South in other matters, such as trade, to reduce the need for individuals to seek immigrating to America solely for the purpose of escaping an unacceptable lifestyle.
There are several factors that influence climate change. One that tends to get limited attention is factory farming as it produces methane. Creating emission standards for rural areas that participate in factory farming would be extremely difficult. However, worthy to mention is that society is trending towards eating healthier and that is promoting the destabilization factory farming.

My positions on emissions standards are moderate. Based on the technology we have today, the EPA has set reasonable standards.

Federal funding for climate research should be minimal if non-profit organizations are conducting research with limited grants as they would(*should) produce non-partisan results.
Tariffs have been proven to inefficient and place burdens on the all individuals as it increases the price of goods and services. Free trade is the lifeblood of America. The limitations of choices being presented because of the rising prices will only hurt Coloradans. It is a chain reaction that will affect all industries.
