TWO PARTY POLITICS – understanding why we no longer control elective officeholders.


Four term Legislator Rick Jore served his district with distinction and was known as the Constitutional Statesman in the Montana Legislature.  Although Rick was very determined to honor his oath of office to support, protect and defend the U.S. and Montana Constitutions, he was well liked and respected by both sides of the aisle and earned a well deserved reputation as a gentleman and true Statesman.  He refused to compromise or trade votes on legislation and everyone knew where Rick stood on every vote and piece of legislation; does it pass the litmus test of constitutionality? Recently he announced his candidacy for the Montana Legislature, representing District 15, but refused to list his political party affiliation because it had no rational purpose or legal basis.  The Secretary of State refused to allow him on the ballot unless he declared himself as Republican, Democrat or Independent.

The two party system is designed to limit competition and protect the political insiders in a political shell game that leaves voters with little or no choice in selecting the best candidates for elective office.  Third and fourth parties have almost no opportunity to get elected and career politicians have replaced the Statesmen that once held political office.  Tonight we will discuss a way to break the icy grip of establishment politics and end the control of every elective office by career politicians.


Rick Jore is a Rancher and Businessman from Ronan Montana that served for 4 terms in the Montana Legislature as Montana’s only declared Constitutional Candidate. He is the primary private hatchery of Western Cutthroat Trout in Montana and travels throughout the State restocking private and public fisheries with the designated State Fish.
