Whoever gets my vote needs to recognize climate change threat

To the Daily Sun,

A registered Undeclared now, I get notice of Republican and Democratic events. I've talked with Gov. Christie at Tilt'n Diner, additionally heard him in Franklin speak on drug addiction. I've followed news on Kasich, but not heard him. (Thursday) night my husband and I heard Jeb Bush in Laconia.

I took a question to ask Bush, but wasn't called on. Gov. Christie had let me know that he's not anti-science. Is Jeb Bush? But Bush spoke highly of Pope Francis and said he can follow the pope's lead and both practice his faith and be fine with science. Something like that. My unasked question was almost answered.

While President Obama is in Alaska to get support for efforts against climate change causes going unchecked, he also has given Shell Oil permission to explore and drill for oil in our fragile Arctic waters. Tragic. Unforgivably poor reasoning there — or defeatist bowing to the energy industry. Whoever gets my Feb. 9 vote needs to recognize climate change's dire consequences and pledge to prioritize cutting down our carbon emissions, energy industry be damned.

Screening for acceptability as respectable, the Republican candidates an Undeclared could look at are Christie, Bush, Kasich, as I see it now. All are articulate, and have experience as work-horse governors. Being effective "across the aisle" is a must, or we waste more years with problems left festering.

Government only thinks of themselves instead of working for us

To the Daily Sun,

We have seen black lives matter protest. How about blue lives matter (policeman)?

I am so sorry to see so many of our cops get killed by these jerks. Many of them are illegals in this country. Funny when you need a cop they will not be around to protect you because of what is going on. Instead of protecting the cops they are protecting the bad guys. What is wrong with this country in the way people are thinking? They are not the enemy.

The bad guys want the excuse to make trouble from the other side. So many things are wrong and unfair. What are we doing about all this? Does anyone write to these so-called officials that are suppose to be working on our behalf and protecting the American? I say, no, they are not. The government only thinks of themselves at this stage of the game.

Better think twice and vote for someone that will take this country back once again. We need to see Obama and his crew all leave office. None of them is worth it. They are all useless.

Also, the U.N. is a joke. They should demolish them and the IRS. They are bigger crooks then anyone. What are they good for?

Where is our outrage on the Iran deal? Why are the prisoners from Gitmo released? What is wrong with our government? Where is our protest on all of this?

I say, God bless America. Yes, I said, "God." Let's put him back in our lives. All law enforcements matter.
