The Constitution Provides The Structure of Power
The U.S. Constitution provides us with the right, through our state legislators, to restore the structure of balanced powers. After all, proper government provides all people freedom, dignity and potential. For our country, this has always meant coming together in voluntary groups outside the sphere of government – in civil society – to get things done. Such is not the case today, when a growing national government continues to take over literally every aspect of our lives. Let’s return decisions back to our state where they belong.
Suppose you’re supervising a group of 25 randomly chosen able-bodied people. You organize an informal game of softball among them. Chances are that most participants will have a good time, and no one will be injured.
Now, change the rules to those of tackle football. A few might enjoy themselves, but many will not, and several participants might get hurt.
Now, alter the rules yet again so that the same group plays the game called Russian Roulette. The consequences will be horrific.
This simple example shows how different rules even among the same people can lead to drastically different results.

Our path forward requires the Constitutional foundation of balanced power, which is unique compared to other democratic nations around the world. The balance should be in favor of the states (the people) and their independence against the federal government. But federal overreach has caused the balance to become wildly skewed.
Increase recognition among voters, legislators and appointed officials that priorities must shift. Instill a sense of urgency in Montanans to take personal reponsibility for rebalancing power, and provide opportunities for this message to have impact at the voting booth, in the legislature, courts and governor’s office, and with others in positions of influence.
“We all learn in school that the judicial, legislative and executive branches of government must check and balance each other. But other non state institutions must participate in this important system of checks and balances as well. These checking institutions include the academy, the media, religious institutions and NGOs.”
