Randall's website highlighted the following campaign issues:
Taxes: The more taxes that are sent to Helena, the more Helena will spend and the more government will grow. I am a strong advocate of less taxes and smaller government.
States Rights: The Federal government is continuing to pass legislation that is destroying the sovereignty of the states. The 10th amendment is being trampled. Thomas Jefferson wrote "When all government shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated." I will stand up to the feds and help restore the balance of power in which it was intended.
Education: Everyone should get a good education. There will always be inequities in funding, and I am working with other representatives to correct our problems. But education funding while important is not the answer to all of our problems. Washington D.C. spends more money per student then any other state and their students test 50th in the nation.
Healthcare: With the passage of the National healthcare bill our Healthcare freedom is under attack. Ben Franklin said "Any country that gives up freedom for security with gain neither." While some reform is needed, this monstrosity of a bill will only drive us closer to complete nationalized healthcare. I will personally stand up and sponsor/cosponsor a bill that will nullify the federal law.
Energy: We import large quantities of energy, not only is this costly but a threat to national security. If the middle east were to shut oil supplies off our economy could be put on a stand still almost over night. I have publicly expressed my support for the Otter Creek coal mine. I will continue to support home grown job creating natural resource development just like this.
Man-Caused Global Warming: If there was any doubt that man made caused global warming has a hoax, the recent climate gate scandals and NASA admitting they falsified data, should pretty well seal the deal. The Cap & Tax legislation is a scheme to add more government control on private business & industry. If this legislation every takes hold, Montana businesses & workers will be on the blunt end of a stick beating them penniless.
Jobs and Wages: Three industries drive Montana's economics, Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Tourism. I have consistently voted to protect the well being of our states economic drivers. Furthermore, I will fight to end the increasing burdensome regulations and taxes on our industries that create jobs.
Gun Ownership: I co-sponsored the Montana Made Firearms Law, I am a firm believer in the 2nd amendment and its intentions of allow every law abiding citizen the right to own and defend themselves with a firearm without regulation, tax, or license.
Abortion: I am Pro-Life. We all have the right to life and to take that away from an innocent defenseless person is a terrible mistake.

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
