Beyond the purposes of self-defense or imminent danger, my Catholic faith teaches me and millions of other Americans that we do not get to decide who lives or who dies; only the good Lord does.
As much as I enjoy hunting the abundant wildlife along the river bottom, my wife and I also take great pleasure in sharing the hunting opportunities on our ranch with so many from our community each year. We understand that community service and shared enjoyment of our great lands is the true Montana tradition.
I think that the citizens of Montana are looking for citizen representatives that are willing to place character, common sense, and conservative values before party, big business, or personal enrichment.
You are innocent until proven guilty. And if folks have come forward, whether it is judge Roy Moore or whether it is anyone else, and they have evidence to convict someone of a crime, then they should go through the legal process and do so.
Not using fly ash in our highways would just be a plain waste of taxpayers' money, which I find unacceptable. Most people don't realize that without fly ash, many of Montana's infrastructure projects simply would not have been possible - like the Hungry Horse Dam near Glacier National Park.
What I am is a principled conservative individual who believes in fiscal responsibility.
If you flatten out the tax rates... and you start eliminating the different write-offs that are allowed to take place there, you make it so the special exemptions have gone away. It's better for business, and it's better for Montana.
I try to use and, furthermore, strive to focus on the actual facts surrounding and impacting any issue.
We have talented people, great businesses, and an unparalleled entrepreneurial spirit in Montana. By raising capital, Montanans can leverage those assets to start new businesses, expand existing ones, and create more good-paying jobs in Missoula and every other community under the Big Sky.
I've worked the ranch. I've hauled sugar beets from the field.
The people of Montana want to send me to Washington - not to bring home the bacon but to slaughter the hog.
Health insurance costs in the United States are on an unsustainable path. I've heard from hundreds of Montanans who are paying thousands of dollars every year for their health insurance coverage and thousands more for deductibles before their insurance provides any benefit.
It is divisive politics to infringe upon the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens after a national tragedy.
The people of Montana understand that you will never be able to take enough money from them and give it to the government to quench that thirst. The government will always spend more money.
If we can recycle a valuable product that serves an important purpose - and create jobs in the process - then why wouldn't we? Well, that's exactly what fly ash offers.
Death should not be a taxable event.
As an avid hunter and outdoorsman, I am blessed to call the bank of the great Yellowstone River outside Glendive my home.
