    Technically true but not really a fair criticism since all but one are by the same person.

    Well, you could always argue they have a statistically insignificant number of state legislators too. I’d be willing to wager Montana is very similar to Tennessee. The same two or three Democrat knuckleheads introduce all of the anti-homeschool legislature year after year. They are probably located in urban areas (Memphis here) that crave the federal dollar.

    Wishful thinking on your part. The Dems will likely control the Montana House this year.
