Fuller for House District #8
Brief Biography of John Fuller
John calls himself an obscure pensioner circling the drain in northwest Montana after assaulting the windmills of ignorance for over forty years in public high schools. His teaching background in History, Government and Economics prevents him from riding his horse into the sunset quietly while our nation stumbles into socialism, tyranny and bankruptcy. While a young man, John’s favorite uncle was the family “curmudgeon” and John is working valiantly to become one himself.
John’s Grandfather was raised on a ranch south of Cut Bank and discovering that he disliked the hard work of ranching, went to law school and became an attorney. He never lost his love for Montana and Big Sky country and John inherited that passion. Consequently, John’s love for Montana’s bountiful lands resulted in his life long interest in the exploration, safeguarding and promotion of our public lands.

“Those who do not confront evil resent those who do. It is dangerous to be right, when the government is wrong.”
My Beliefs as a Republican
“Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place. These three gifts from God precede all human legislation, and are superior to it.”
…Frederic Bastiat; The Law (1850).
Thomas Jefferson states in the Declaration of Independence that “To secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” As your elected representative in the legislature of Montana, I pledge to consistently defend these rights.
Ever since the Republican Party was founded in 1854 with the goal of abolishing slavery in the Territories, it has consistently promoted the principles of personal and economic freedom, federalism and an adherence to the U.S. Constitution. Today, in my view, nothing has changed. Republicans appeal to the “better angels of our nature”, and believe that America is, and always shall be the greatest nation on earth. Therefore, the following will be my priorities as your representative.
Putting Montana First.
Protecting Our Way of Life
Access to public lands
Promoting responsible use of Montana’s resources
Defending the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
Reduce taxes and prioritize government efficiency.
Support efforts to create jobs and help small businesses in Montana
Defend and protect the lives of all Montanans; especially unborn babies, foster children and veterans.
Promote an educational system that is competitive and empowers and enlightens Montana’s children.
