We have an extraordinary opportunity to build a better country and world by embracing our core Constitutional values.” said Fenton who is running on a platform of freedom, human rights, free markets and peace. “I’m very much against the lockdowns, movement passes and other abuses we’ve seen over the last two years. I’m in favor of personal choice, sound economics, capitalism and small government.”

He has worked and lived around the world and has completed billions of dollars in transactions and worked with some of the world’s largest investors. Fenton got his start on Wall Street after serving in the US Navy and has worked full time on Bitcoin and digital assets since 2013.

    Do you acknowledge the consensus that climate change is real, here and primarily human-induced? What’s your approach to addressing climate change, given your free market allegiance? Do you believe governments have a role to play in addressing this problem?

      The environment is deeply important to me. My free markets view goes also with one that it is legitimate for government to protect life, liberty and property – so this includes our environment. If someone attempts to pollute the Great Bay for example then I would view that as an infringement on my rights as a Great Bay resident and I believe it is a legitimate role of the government to stop such an abuse.

      Now when we get into much more complex situations like carbon credits and climate change — the roper role of government is not as clear – and this is compounded by the problem that data and information is politicized. Even if we can agree on the data, it is harder to agree on what a solution should be, where government should be involved and especially what the second order effects are. Both Covid policy and Afghanistan policy show government’s ability to be wrong or not consider second order effects.

      So overall I want to support the environment as much as possible but would be very cautious of experts and centralized power.
