Preserving property rights are critical to the prosperity of farmers, ranchers, business owners, and rural communities whose lives, livelihood, and general well-being depends upon the ability to utilize their lands and to access water they have rights to for the purpose of their own choosing, not to satisfy the agenda of others whose actions would serve to limit those rights.
Our mission is to preserve and protect all rights and benefits associated with the ownership of property in the state of Montana. We exist to advocate for, protect and defend all aspects of property ownership.
We are immediately facing a threat to western Montana by the federal government’s aggressive take-over of millions of acres of land and millions of acre feet of water under the guise of an Indian water rights settlement.
We support the right of all Tribes to their water rights but reject the federal government’s masked objective of illegally expanding the federal reserved rights doctrine, claiming massive water rights reaching far beyond the reservation boundary, and claiming most of the water in western Montana for the federal government.
Your contribution to our efforts will help grow a west-wide citizen oriented groundswell to repel the increasingly aggressive actions of federal and state governments to take water and eliminate the human presence on the west’s most productive agricultural, timber, mining, and open landscapes.
Any contribution of any amount is welcome and will be put to good use!
How Will Your Contribution Help?
All over the western United States, federal and state agencies seek additional control over land use and private property through zoning, environmental regulations, and the Endangered Species Act. Your contribution will help stem that assault here in Montana and across the west, and help to defend rural economies.
Our efforts to stem the assault on land and water successfully reached over 50,000 people last year through our educational materials, video products, public workshops, and newspaper articles. Your contribution will help us to continue and advance this effort and reach all Montanans.
Your contribution will send a message to federal and state regulators: the American people have had enough of needless and lawless actions to take away or restrict the use and enjoyment of private property and access to water. The people of America know how to manage their lands, protect them for future generations, and preserve the environment without the interference of any government.
Risks & Challenges
The risks we face as citizens is that our state government and legislature will not follow the law or abide by its citizens wishes, thereby necessitating a legal challenges. Like our Congress and in many states our legislature is filled with politicians, not statesmen.
We also face the very real risk that the United States will turn on the citizens of Montana and will join the lawsuit against citizens aimed at eliminating history, land patents, and water rights. This will require the strongest of responses as David once again faces Goliath.
We intend to do whatever we can to protect our land and water rights, families, our state, and future generations of Montanans.
