13. Global warming is a problem requiring increased regulation: Oppose
14. Environmental regulations in Montana are too stringent: Support
15. Environmental regulations in Montana are NOT stringent enough: Oppose* The power to tax is the power to enslave. We must always be vigilant and not let the Legislature tax us to serfdom. Less taxes means more money left in your pocket for you to do with how you see fit. I would rather trust the people with their own money to spend it the way they want to versus letting the government spend it for you. Less taxation has been tried and is proven to increase revenues and we must not have double taxation.
16. Montanans should not be discriminated against or treated differently because of their vaccine status: Strongly Support* We as Americans are born into are freedom bought and paid through the blood and treasure of our ancestors. If tyranny is wrong and freedom right then we should never treat it like a package of baloney and give it away a slice at a time. We as a people have fought so hard to make a more perfect union. We should never no backwards.

25. The Montana Constitution should be amended to ban abortion: Support
26. Infanticide (infants born alive with physical abnormalities, including infants born as a result of a botched abortion) should be banned in Montana. Strongly Support
27. Companies and individuals should be allowed to opt-out of the abortion related mandates contained in Obamacare: Strongly Support* Abortion has been an argument since the beginning of our nation. Our founders opposed it for the same way I do. English common law is basically the 10 commandents and that child is a human being that should never pay for the sins of its parents. The child is a human being at ever level of development to death, because of this, it has its own rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness that no one can take from them. From conception their life is protected by our laws and should be treated with the same respect to their rights as a human being.

30. Homosexuals and transgender people should be allowed to adopt children: Support
31. Non-discrimination laws should be expanded to protect sexual orientation and gender identity in the same way that race, creed, nationality, and religion are protected: Support
32. Montana’s marriage laws should be changed to reflect the recent legalization of same-sex marriage by the U.S. Supreme Court: Strongly Oppose* Just like all my beliefs you have a right to be who you want to be. You cannot tell someone what they must be or believe. That is two way street, we will always disagree but we cannot have the government force us to comply with your neighbors belief by barrel of a gun. Government is not reason it is force, so we must be cautious in how we use it to compel others. It is better to let people live their lives without government intrusion and save our society's social fabric that binds us for times wen we will need it most. The best way to do that is to let everyone live the way they see fit, as long as you are not imposing upon there rights to life and liberty by physical or financial means.
