Former GOP House candidate from Montana fights seat belt ticket as unconstitutional

Source: Missoulian

But to Mark French, who mounted an uphill battle against then-incumbent Denny Rehberg for the GOP nomination in 2010, it was about much more than a $20 ticket.

He says itís about government overreach, and he says that leads to such things as Obamacare, gun control and government deciding how large a soda pop you can purchase.

3. You can fight the law but you can't fight the laws of physics

How dare the government want to prevent him from flying through his windshield in case of an accident!
