Hillary is a lawyer, she had to know what she was doing was wrong

To The Daily Sun,

People today are treating the Constitution like it's a piece of paper instead of the lifeblood of this great country. In 1963 or 1964 I heard a speech by the Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. He said, "that America would never be beaten from the outside, but he wasn't worried." We would destroy ourselves from within.

Democracy means that we live by a basic set of laws. If we find out that it needs to be tweaked then we have the right to pass reasonable laws to make things work. Not changed by politicians. But by "We the People" we have gone so far past reasonable that democracy in this country has become a joke. It has become the majority that gets its way, not what's actually the right thing to do.

If you're anti-gun then you have the right not to bear arms. But in a real democracy you don't have the right to pass laws that stop me from bearing arms. That's no longer democracy. It's socialism. If you're against abortion, that's your right. But you don't have the right to pass laws that stop anyone from getting an abortion. Again that's not democracy. It's socialism. And if you believe in God then he will judge them if they're wrong — not any of  you.

All of these laws are illegal, according to the Constitution. The first steps in going from democracy to socialism or communism is to disarm the people. That's why the Second Amendment was written, to make sure that anyone planning to take over this country would be met with armed resistance from "We the People." The Second Amendment is very clear: "The right to bear arms shall not be infringed on." Hundreds of laws have been passed that infringed on the right to bear arms and very few have ever been challenged and they should be abolished immediately.

Every politician has sworn an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Anything else is treason.

Hillary Clinton is not only a liar, but a criminal. She allowed secret information to be sent over an unsecured line. I believe that is a treasonable act. She not only lied about what she had done, but destroyed thousands of emails when questioned about it. That's lying to the FBI and tampering with evidence. When questioned by the FBI, she finally admitted to what she had done. Instead of arresting her, she was let off, with the excuse she didn't really know what she was doing and it shouldn't be considered breaking the law. I believe, ignorance of the law is no excuse. Being a lawyer she had to know this.

I will be the first to admit that Donald Trump is not perfect, but none of us really are. He has made mistakes. But that's because he's not a polished politician. He's a businessman. He's exactly what we need to change the direction of this great country. He loves America and wants to make things better, not carry on with the same old ignorance.

We need term limits on all politicians. We need to cut 50 percent of all overseas aid, especially to any country that hates us, and bring (that aid money) back into this country to give homeless veterans and seniors the assistance they need.

All seniors in this country need a raise, instead of politicians getting one. Money taken from the Social Security fund has to be returned. Let's see how they handle what's been happening to all of us for all these years. They also need to start paying for their insurance in the same way we've been made to pay for years. Politicians should never be allowed to pass any benefit package for just themselves. Taxpayers should get the benefits first. Those few changes should put millions — if not billions — of dollars back into the economy.

Now for the last part of this long winded letter: Illegal aliens.

I find it extremely hard to understand what word in illegal aliens people don't understand. Come into this country legally and we will welcome you with open arms. You will, however, be expected to work, pay taxes, live a legal life and respect the flag, country, and the national anthem. Come into this country illegally and you will be sent back, never to be allowed to come into this country again. If you're illegal and have a baby while you're here, you're illegal, it's illegal, pick it up and go home.

Instead of holding you solely responsible for your actions, we will arrest, fine and prosecute anyone helping you, even if they give you a cup of water. Go to your nearest police station and you will be processed, fed and deported never to be allowed into this country again. No education, no welfare no help of any kind, have a nice day. Bye.

Hard decisions have to be made and Hillary's not the answer. I'd like to know where all these women, all of a sudden came from to attack Donald Trump for possible things done in the past. For many years I guess they didn't mind the groping, if it ever happened at all. His mouth problems years ago about women is just that. He ran his mouth, just like most normal men do. It's in the past and it's not even close to what Bill did, while in the White House. Let's move on and elect someone who will change the current political mind set, instead of continuing it, like Hillary has stated she will do. Trump can't be bought, can't be scared and can't be pressured to follow the wrong path.

Also, I feel political polling should only be done by independent sources and not by news media who may favor a political candidate.

Giuda takes positions that raise questions about his judgement

To The Daily Sun,

We have two distinctly different candidates, coincidentally both from Warren, running for the State Senate seat for District 2.

First, Charlie Chandler, a Democrat and retired Laconia attorney widely recognized for leadership, integrity and good judgment, with a 45-year record of collaborating to accomplish shared objectives.

And second, Bob Giuda, a Republican and retired airline pilot, who is known to take extreme positions that raise questions about his judgment and temperament.

Republican Speaker Harold Burns recognized Mr. Chandler in a 1996 Declaration, stating the House is "profoundly grateful ... and expresses its sincerest appreciation" to Mr. Chandler for serving "with distinction and great dedication, consistently speaking with the energetic voice of leadership" and for "outstanding performance as a servant of the people." More recently, Mr. Chandler was selected by the Secretary of State to serve as presiding officer for the investigation into Financial Resources Mortgage Inc., which bilked New Hampshire fraud victims of millions of dollars.

Mr. Giuda traveled to Nevada to join armed supporters at Cliven Bundy's ranch to face down federal officials over grazing rights on public park lands. Mr. Giuda claimed the government had asserted "dictatorial powers" and their actions are "linked to international efforts by international organizations to destroy our sovereignty by attacking our property rights and our 2nd Amendment."

Charlie Chandler believes in investing in the K-12 public schools, our community colleges and the state's University System. While Bob Giuda believes in diverting taxpayer dollars to fund charter, private and religious schools.

Please join me in voting for Charlie Chandler for State Senate in District 2.
