Candidate’s additional comments 5. I have not looked into the funding for public education, but I have talked to a couple teachers who say that the money does not get to them. Federal money is given to the state, who then budgets it for the OPI. What these educators have told me is that most of the money does not get all the way down the ladder into the classrooms. The money may very well be available, but it is not being utilized.  11. Homosexual couples who are in a civil union should receive the same treatment under the law as a heterosexual couple in a marriage.   18. I don’t oppose homosexual couples adopting because I have anything against homosexuals. I oppose it because a child raised in a two-parent family where both parents are the same sex, results in the child being denied either a mother or a father. Social scientists have confirmed that both a mother and a father are needed, as a sort of checks and balances that promotes quality parenting  20-21. I oppose new laws changing the definition of marriage because the role of government is not to regulate the dictionary. The traditional definition of marriage has stood for thousands of years. It was created as a way to unite a man and a woman in raising a family. It is the central theme around a strong family, one that children learn from. Marriage is a gender-based institution. A gay man and a gay woman can still get married, because marriage doesn’t care about sexual orientation. However, to recognize homosexual unions as a marriage is to completely destroy the entire institution in order to rebuild it. This is not the role of government.   22. Montana should abandon the income tax altogether and instead levy a sales tax. This would result in either the same amount of taxes or more, as Montana residents would pay less taxes but tourists would also pay into the system. Because tourists enjoy tax-funded provisions, they should pay into the system as well.
