Montana deserves someone who will reliably vote to expand each individual's freedom to pursue their own very personal version of happiness.
The pursuit of happiness requires individual approaches to life, and this requires each of us to extend to others extraordinary freedom. Scott wants you to be truly free to live your life, and he wishes you success in finding your version of happiness. Please help Scott in making Montana the freest state in the country, and America the freest country in the world.
Scott feels strongly that Montana deserves better than the policies that liberals like Jon Tester, Hillary Clinton, and Barack Obama have supported. Scott admires leaders like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Ben Sasse in the U.S. Senate who are pushing forward a reform agenda that centers on a limited form of government that recognizes the rights of the individual and is true to the original vision of the Constitution. Scott understands that the only moral form of government is one that defends the individual's right to freedom. Anything less or more than this is immoral.
Scott is an activist who has fought for freedom. Scott has successfully brought suit in Federal court defending and winning a free speech case that helped expand and cement the right of citizens in the Fourth Circuit to have their right to advertise recognized as free speech. Scott is the Montana State Legislative Director for the Convention of States Project, seeking to have Montana join with other states in the call to reign in the federal government by proposing amendments to the Constitution.
