Progressive playbook out of step with Article 10 of N.H. Constitution

To the editor,
This letter is to alert the Misters Rodgers, Corliss, Veverka, Siden and others of their ilk to the existence of Article 10 of the N.H. Constitution. I realize they'll probably consider it whimsy but I figured I'd bring to their attention anyway.
"(Art.) 10. (Right of Revolution.) Government being instituted for the common benefit, protection, and security, of the whole community, and not for the private interest or emolument of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the people may, and of right ought to reform the old, or establish a new government. The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind."
I would suggest they pay special attention to the last sentence, and if they do, I would hope they would come to the conclusion that maybe those of us who believe in the Constitutions of N.H. and the U.S. and the 2nd. Amendment are not buffoons after all, but that's probably not in the progressive playbook.
