Ovide LaMontagne at the Rye Republicans, March 10th, Talks Candidacy and Education (CACR12)

NH Gubernatorial candidate, Ovide LaMontagne, spoke to the Rye Republicans this morning on his candidacy. Topics covered included Ovide’s background, the NH constitution and education, the claremont decisions, and CACR12.

Mike is a British import of more than 30 years, who was a conservative in the days of Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.

A staunch constitutionalist, Mike espouses all good causes toward the libertarian side of conservative – EG he who governs least, governs best. He believes that the Declaration, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights mean what they say, and that candidates for office should take their oaths of office seriously.
Here to defend, without irony “Your rights as Englishmen from distant and tyrannical government”, Mike knows whereof he speaks and exhorts all US citizens to live, breathe and teach our history and our constitution.
