     A few bullet points for the James Dean Campaign.
    –This whole election is about which candidate can solve problems. D.C. doesn’t know how to solve problems, so we must take personal responsibility to step up, solve problems, and fix the system.
    –On the issues, I am pro gun and pro life.
    –I have a specific plan to fundamentally reform our financial system, especially banking. Nobody else how to fix the financial system. I am in close alignment with Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Occupy Wall Street on the hazards of a corrupt and broken banking system.
    –I draw attention to the fact that half of Tester’s top contributors are banks and financial institutions he regulates as a member of the Senate banking committee. If Montana allows Tester’s millions of out of state campaign dollars to sway their vote, Montana will sacrifice its sovereignty to the New York banking cartel.
    –I have a specific plan to fix the insurance system, which is ruining our medical system. By making insurance and money work better, medical system will stop making people sick and cost much less.
    –Our nation is bankrupt, and we risk a breakup of the United States and war. Every taxpayer owes $900,000 in unfunded liabilities, which is their personal bill to pay interest and taxes on $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities and $20 trillion in federal debt. This means that raising or lowering taxes or raising or lowering spending cannot grow the economy enough to stave off bankruptcy. Both parties are ideologically bankrupt. The economists like Milton Friedman that conservatives look to didn’t have the answers, but I do.
    –I have designed a new economic system to create a “hypergrowing economy” that grows at 50-100% every year. My team and I had to solve a tremendous number of problems to make it simple and cheap enough to implement. Nothing less will work.
    –My wife is running a vigorous campaign against Jon Tester as a Democrat. We want the entire electorate of Montana to vote for one of us so that we can go to Congress with a supermajority. We can solve problems in ways neither party has a grid for. Our problem-solving platform is inherently bipartisan.
    –On abortion, we want to build a system that completely takes care of every expectant mother’s needs so that she has the freedom in her circumstances to choose life.

    REAL Montana builds a network of informed and engaged leaders to advance the natural resource industries in Montana.

Year Two includes a 10-day international trip. Each in-state seminar typically runs from Thursday afternoon through Saturday afternoon.
    Seminar Topics 
    Seminars are a mix of leadership training, educational tours, in- and out-of-state travel, and networking opportunities.  Program content includes agriculture institutions and agencies, natural resource development, public speaking/media, economics, policy, international trade, urban/rural relationships, water issues, transportation, labor and production costs, entrepreneurship, and other current industry topics.

    Each participant is responsible for a $3,000 tuition fee, which covers tours, educational materials, double occupancy lodging, meals, and out-of-state airfare. The tuition fee accounts for approximately 20% of the total cost of the program, the majority of which is made possible through the generous contributions of our sponsors.  Please visit our SPONSOR PAGE for a list of program supporters.

    Participants are responsible for costs associated with transportation to and from each in-state seminar and departure locations for out-of-state seminars.

    Organizational Structure
    REAL Montana is funded through a partnership with Montana State University Extension and private industry.  Oversight is provided by an advisory board of industry leaders.

    A fifth-generation Montanan, Steve Daines brings 28 years of private-sector business experience to Washington, D.C. as he serves the people of Montana in the U.S. Senate.

    Steve is a lifelong sportsman and grew up in Bozeman, Montana. After attending public schools (K-12) in Bozeman, Steve worked his way through college at Montana State University and graduated with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. He spent thirteen years in a management role for Procter & Gamble, and then returned to Bozeman in 1997 to work in a family construction business.


    In 2000, Steve took on the role of VP at RightNow Technologies, a Bozeman-based cloud computing start-up company.  The company grew rapidly and became a publicly traded software company with 17 offices around the world, and products in over 30 languages. The company was acquired by Oracle in 2012 and remains one of Montana’s largest commercial employers.  Steve was elected to serve as Montana’s United States Representative in 2012. During his time in the House, Daines championed legislation to expand responsible development of Montana’s energy resources, move forward meaningful forest management reform, increase transparency and accountability in government, and require members of Congress to balance the budget – or see their pay terminated.  Additionally, he passed the most significant public lands bill for Montana in over 30 years.   He was ranked the most effective first-term House member in 2013 and again in 2014.

    In the U.S. Senate, Daines is working on issues of critical importance to growing good-paying Montana jobs, developing our state’s energy resources, managing and protecting our public lands and supporting the needs of Montana’s veterans and tribes. He serves on the Senate Committees on Appropriations, Energy and Natural Resources, Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, Agriculture and Indian Affairs.

    Steve has been married to his wife, Cindy, for 30 years. They live in Bozeman and are the parents of four children: David, Annie, Michael and Caroline. Steve and his family are actively involved in their church and community volunteer organizations and enjoy backpacking, hunting, skiing and fishing.

    Chronic wasting disease is a progressive, fatal disease affecting the central nervous system of mule deer, white-tailed deer, elk and moose. It is part of a group of diseases called Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies. TSEs are caused by infectious, mis-folded prion proteins, which cause normal prion proteins throughout a healthy animal’s body to mis-fold, resulting in organ damage and eventual death.

    Though there is no evidence CWD is transmissible to humans, it is recommended to never ingest meat from animals that appear to be sick or are known to be CWD positive. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends hunters who have harvested a deer, elk, or moose from a known CWD-infected area have the animal tested prior to consuming it. If hunters harvest an animal that appears to be sick, the best thing to do is contact FWP and have the animal inspected.

    Some simple precautions should be taken when field dressing deer, elk or moose:

    • Wear rubber gloves and eye protection when field dressing.
    • Minimize the handling of brain and spinal tissues.
    • Wash hands and instruments thoroughly after field dressing is completed.
    • Avoid consuming brain, spinal cord, eyes, spleen, tonsils and lymph nodes of harvested animals. (Normal field dressing coupled with boning out of a carcass will essentially remove all of these parts.)

    From her website-Sarah Dean grew up outside Chicago Illinois in a rural area called Barrington. Hard work was all she knew. She had a love for horses (including training and taming them), hunting, fishing and being self sufficient. Sarah was homeschooled. She first made her way to Havre, MT in 1999 with her family while they were on a deeper pursuit of a “Little House on the Prairie” lifestyle. She fell in love with the town and it’s quiet beauty.

    As a young child, economics, business, and politics fascinated Sarah. She started her first company at the age of 15. She understood that hard work and grit would be the only way to succeed in life. During the financial crisis in 2008 she used the remaining curtains in her house along with scrap fabric to start a fashion business. Since then she has been featured as a trend setter in Vogue, Glamour, magazines, and her fashion shows made national television news for various causes including anti bullying.

    Sarah knows how to listen, lead and communicate. Sarah is a Millennial and understands that this is the now generation that needs the most support. Sarah understands the art of bringing people together to create an integrated whole. This talent is much needed in Montana, which is a sharply divided state between Democrat and Republican.

     As a small business owner and designer, Sarah understands how to design. She has been designing systems that provide solutions to many problems. These solutions will create the change which will allow the state and its people to unite and fix many problems. Excellent designers can design anything.

    Sarah plans to bring transformative change to our education systems, healthcare, environment and economic systems.

    Sarah has her ear to the people. She stands for the minority, the poor, the business owners, the middle class and most of all the children because they are the nations future. She believes that change starts with the people but is facilitated by those who we trust who serve in government.

    FOOD EVOLUTION shows how easily misinformation, confusion and fear can overwhelm objective analysis. How do we ensure that our food supply is safe, and that everyone has enough to eat? How do we feed the world while also protecting the planet? Has genetic engineering increased or decreased pesticide use? Are GMO foods bad for your health? And, most importantly, what data, evidence and sources are we using to approach these important questions?

    In 20 years as a judge, Russ Fagg has seen just about every form of human suffering come before his court. From families breaking up to young people turning to a life of crime, almost all the cases trace their roots to the same cause: poverty and economic crisis. Montana needs more jobs. That’s why Russ is running for the U.S. Senate.

    A University of Montana benefactor is re-evaluating future giving to the School of Journalism after the dean declined to host a conservative writer as its annual Cole lecturer.

    Donor Maria Cole was married to the late Wall Street Journal reporter for whom the Jeff Cole Legacy Fund is named, and has given more than $1.2 million over the last 15 years to the School of Journalism.

    The last nine years, Cole has sponsored the Jeff Cole Distinguished Lecture, inviting former colleagues of her husband to speak. She wanted the 10th anniversary to be different and decided to create an event that would spark civil discourse.

    Each year, Cole said she selects a lecturer, and the School of Journalism chooses a scholarship recipient. After vetting potential candidates for speaker, she invited and entered into a contract with Mike Adams, professor at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington.

    Adams won a First Amendment case in the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2011, and he’s a columnist for Townhall.com, which aims to amplify conservative voices in political debates.

    Adams regularly mocks leftists in his writing and his views earlier sparked a petition for his termination at UNC. He has targeted LGBT people, Muslims and feminists, and he has described transgender people as mentally ill.

    For the first time in the tradition of the annual event, School of Journalism Dean Larry Abramson objected to the lecturer Cole selected, a reaction Cole said she never anticipated.

    She said Adams has twice been voted best professor at UNC and he’s a longtime defender of free speech, a foundation of journalism.

    “I was so stunned,” Cole said. “How can you say — especially the dean of a journalism school — how can you say you support free speech and deny this guy to come to campus?”
