Matt Rosendale and The Truth About Shooting Drones

by Tim Baldwin Matt Rosendale (R), candidate for United States House of Representatives, quickly created a public image as a Tea Party conservative when he broadcasted a commercial where he shoots down a “government drone.” Looking at Rosendale’s state legislative record, however, evidence reveals that Rosendale really does not believe in “shooting drones” through legislation and did nothing to limit the use of drones in criminal prosecutions in Montana.

Montana CI 114 Is Anti-Democratic

by Tim Baldwin In 2014, Montana may be able to vote on citizen initiative (CI) 114 if enough signatures are gathered to put on the ballot. CI 114 would amend Montana’s Constitution requiring that the State legislature be 50% men and 50% women. Democracy and Republics are about real choice, not forced choice. I oppose CI 114.
