I mentioned some time ago that I entered law school after being established in my medical specialty for several years and that I was over 40 years old. I found that Thomas Jefferson was not well thought of by many law professors and even demonized by a few. It was obvious to me that this was a result of one thing Jefferson did and one thing he stood for. Jefferson was extremely critical of the decision in the Marbury vs. Madison. This case basically allowed federal judges to begin legislating from the bench. Jefferson stood for the power of the impartial jury mentioned in the Sixth Amendment. The Constitution as written and meant by our founders gave the impartial jury the power to judge not only the facts of a criminal case but also to determine whether the law that the accused has been charged with violating is fair and just.

For four terms I served at the Montana Legislature representing HD 36. One thing has become obvious; conservative legislation can be vetoed by a liberal governor. For eight years there has been conservative legislation passed by the House and Senate, but the measures were dead on arrival at the governor’s desk. In 2020 we are going to have the best opportunity we’ve had in 16 years to take back the governor’s office, and it’s with Congressman Greg Gianforte as our nominee.
