That is an easy answer for a Patriot who loves this country and is seeing it destroyed from within by politicians. I believe in our nation’s Constitution and the Biblical principles it was founded on. We have one candidate who also believes in our Constitution in its entirety and one who does not. I’m speaking directly to our 10th Amendment which states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the People.”
I for one have found these last two years a nightmare. A government trying to force their will on all the people of our nation. I have witnessed loved ones die at the hands of doctors who deliberately ignored their oath in order to pad their pockets with blood money. I want my representative, my voice to be a man who is honest, transparent, has integrity and is willing to fight to put the Federal government who is stampeding over our rights, back in its strictly limited constitutional box. The Federal government only has 18 enumerated powers, article 1 section 8. Our constitution is our protection order against the federal government stepping outside these powers. It is the right and duty of the State to nullify unconditional usurpations. We the people used the right to nullify to legalize marijuana in the State of Montana. We told the Federal government to stay out of our business. Why didn’t we do our duty and use our 10th amendment right to nullify the Federal government’s unlawful and unconstitutional mandates, closing of our businesses, taking away our jobs, shutting down pipelines, causing an energy crisis, and threatening our 2nd Amendment? We have to rise up against this onset of a dictatorship and democracy. We need to send the right people to Helena if we intend to keep our republic. Why have individual State Constitutions if we are going to allow the Federal government to rule over us?
I have listened to both candidates several times. I still do not have an idea of what Wayne Rusk plans to do if we were to send him to Helena. I’ve heard him say that he is going to observe and learn. Umm, what? I am not willing to send a preschooler to speak on my behalf and my families behalf. His claim to fame is co-chair of the Ravalli County Collaborative Board. Which is a liaison between us and the Forest Service? He has spent a lot of time throwing mud at his opponent. When he himself is the one who has not been forthcoming and has not shown himself as honest, transparent, with integrity. His position on Convention of the States is really unknown. He’s all over the board. It seems clear to me that it depends on who he’s speaking to if he’s for or against it. Wishy washy to gain support? Again, I don’t want someone diverse in his character representing me. Convention of States would be disastrous and our country as we know it will cease to exist. DO NOT open our United States Constitution up to be amended to fit a global agenda. Who believes there was not voter fraud and that Biden is our legitimate president? Wayne Rusk that’s who. He does not believe in our 10th amendment. He believes the Federal government should have all the power and States should not be able to nullify anything. He believes liberty is only what is allowed by law and not our God given gift. Wayne is a polished speaker handled by another polished speaker Dave Bedey. He is well on his way to be the politician he so desperately wants to become. I don’t want dishonest and ill tempered representation. Especially not in Helena. I don’t want a puppet of big government speaking for me. I want someone who loves Jesus and who will stand firm as a servant of we the people. I want someone who has conviction to leaving our children and grandchildren a State they can be proud of. A state where the American dream is alive and well. My vote is for Alan Lackey.
Alan Lackey is a Patriot NOT a politician.
ELECT Alan Lackey HD88.
