When you're running as an Independent the cards are stacked against you. You have to try and manipulate the media into giving you as much free airtime or print space as possible.
Gary Marbut is the king of this, future candidates really can learn a lot from his strategies.
We've received several Gary Marbut flyers in the mail at our house. Not one identifies him as president of the Montana Shooting Sports Association. I really believe he wanted to minimize his affiliation with that organization on the flyer, because he knows he is in a district in which his extreme views on guns are not popular.
Good investigative journalism! Thanks to Tristan for persevering. Secrecy in government is becoming more insidious, as articles like this one illustrate. Keep up the good work, Tristan.

Interestingly enough, our giverment and park service own nothing. We the people own this land and the government and park service must follow our guidelines, which sadly they create, to do anything against the lines that have been drawn. I think it is time to admit we are no longer a government for the people or by the people as the people have nothing to do with it any longer.
