I now wholeheartedly support Jeanie Forrester; vote Republican

To The Daily Sun,

I have recently been attacked in your letters section for being associated with the Free State Project, former state House Speaker Bill O'Brien, and the lawsuit where we proved multiple violations of the law by the majority Democrats when they rammed through a $32 million tax increase for the people of Grafton County to build an unnecessary new prison. The attacks appear to come from a Republican, but I am a firm believer in Ronald Reagan's "11th Commandment" to not speak ill of fellow Republicans (a rule I followed in my primary challenge of state Sen. Jeanie Forrester, whom I now wholeheartedly support).

So all I want to say is I have known state House candidate Bob Hull for more than 10 years now (and in fact live on his property in the town of Grafton when I'm in New Hampshire), and I can assure every voter that Bob is honest, honorable, and diligent in all his dealings with everyone. I totally recommend him for election to the state House, and will be casting my vote for him on Nov. 4.

For everyone who will be voting that day — no matter what you may be registered — I say, "This year, let's all just vote Republican."

Tim Condon, Esq.

George Hurt is both experienced & trusted; let's elect him Nov. 4

To The Daily Sun,

There is a fundamental choice in this year's Nov. 4 election. I am supporting George Hurt, who is a New Hampshire native and a long-time Gilford resident. George has been a Laconia businessman for more than 30 years and knows what it takes to make a payroll in tough economic times. He also served in the Legislature for Gilford in the mid­-1990s and was appointed to several state boards, including the State Board of Education, and the Judicial Conduct Commission. His common-sense approach to budgetary matters will bode well not only for the state but also, the taxpayers of Belknap County.

The Nov. 4 election is critical for the voters of both Gilford and Meredith. Let's elect a known, experienced and trusted individual, and elect George to the New Hampshire House.

Time to stop madness known as Obama's 'Changing America'

To The Daily Sun,

Politico.com: "According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Wednesday, 40 percent of Americans approve of Obama's job performance, the lowest score the poll has recorded since he took office. His rating is down one point from September.
"Among independent voters, Obama's approval rating stands at 33 percent." Now that is good news. My hope is that Americans will rid us of those Democrats who are elected, or those looking to be elected, for the part they have played in the past six years of supporting and defending Barack Obama's polices.

Did you hear that Jeanne, Carol, Maggie, Hosmer and Annie? These representatives of the people had six years, four years, and two years to stop this madness known as Obama's "Changing America." They did nothing. We cannot allow them to have two to six more years to be there to promote the Obama socialist agenda. Don't you agree?

You don't have to be hooded up to cable to watch LRPA-TV

To The Daily Sun,

It was front page news in your Tuesday (Oct. 14) edition that our local public access TV station (LRPA) has thrown a "Hail Mary" to stay on the air after Oct. 22. The Hail Mary amounts to billing the LRPA member communities the amounts they have paid in previous years, and then cross their fingers that the members will ante up as they have since LRPA was born in the mid-1990s.

I hope that the elected representatives in the member communities will bear in mind one matter that is very different from the years when they first paid their dues to LRPA. Back then, LRPA's three stations could only be received by residents who subscribed to cable television. In Alton that was something on the order of one-third of the households. So 100 percent of the taxpayers were paying for a benefit received by only a fraction of their neighbors.

In this day and age one does not need to be hooked up to cable to receive LRPA. If you are on the Internet (which must be virtually all taxpayers), LRPA is just a click or two away. That's for me, and I hope Alton contributes to keeping LRPA on the air.

Don't vote for candidates who push unconstitutional policies

To The Daily Sun,

We have lost control of our federal government. Where does it say in the Constitution that the federal government has the power to control our education, our health, our sex lives, our water, our communications, our food, our transportation (except over interstate), our thoughts?

It doesn't. The federal government has only the powers given to it by the U.S. Constitution. All other powers are by the states. Article I, sect. 8 specifically gives Congress a list of powers. General welfare does not mean welfare as it is thought of today, that is, making all people middle class?

So where did we go wrong with our Congress? Aren't they there to represent us? They are making laws, which cost us money, that have nothing to do with their responsibilities. Where did the Department of Education come from? Where did the DES, HUD, EPA, NSA, etc., come from, and why? And why isn't the Supreme Court doing something to prevent these unconstitutional laws?

And what about regional government? Instead of being governed locally, where we can control our representatives, we are being told how to live our lives by unelected appointees who are paid mostly by the federal government.

It sounds to me like they are all in cahoots for a bigger federal government. After all, once they have their foot in the door, they have to keep themselves there.

We need to elect representatives who will actually listen to the people. Choose carefully who you vote for. Do they push these unconstitutional policies, or Obama's policy which seeks to subvert the meaning of the Constitution? A lack of intelligent votes will put those in power who aren't there for your good, but for their own. Check out the websites of those who are running for office and choose wisely.

And if you want more information on the Constitution, check out any number of videos available that explains each section in detail. I like the one being shown at the Lakes Region TEA Party meetings by Rick Greene called Constitution Alive.
