We read about the effects of this power grab everyday in the news. It is an intrusion into our private lives. It is a loss of our right to privacy, which is repeatedly violated everyday, through the collection of personal information by the federal government. This power grab means warrantless wiretaps and searches, routinely conducted by federal agencies, without oversight by the Judicial Branch. And it also means our religious liberties are slowly being washed away by laws and actions that are diametrically opposed to the founding of our country.
How much further will governments lean on your civil liberties? The Legislature must construct legal roadblocks between an out-of-control government and “we the people”. As your representative, I will seek to use our State government’s power to reassert the rights of Montanans.
I believe that parents, in conjunction with local school districts and teachers, should be returned to the driver’s seat. Only then can communities help each student to reach his or her potential.
Despite this, many voices seem to think that we cannot conserve and develop our resources at the same time. But we can. In fact, most ranchers have been doing both for generations. Responsible production and sensible conservation comes naturally to most of us who call Montana home.
But this has made us a target. Obsolete viewpoints and false premises are used to stop us from exercising our rights to develop our State’s resources and protect our lands as we deem appropriate. We are forced to suffer the consequences of a stagnant national energy policy and over-zealous regulatory agencies, instead of harnessing our resources and at the same time improving our economy and creating new jobs.
I will work to keep nonsensical regulations out of the way of small businesses while helping our community conserve our “Treasure State” for generations to come.
Sometimes in political debate, others forget that our civil liberties include our right to own firearms. As your representative in the Legislature, I won’t forget that the Second Amendment is irrefutably part of our character, as Montanans. And I will protect that right from federal and state interference, meant to limit gun ownership by law-abiding citizens.
