If Clinton wins the presidency, GOP leaders have themselves to blame

To the Daily Sun,

Whether you love Donald Trump or hate him, he did win the GOP Primary fair and square with 13.3 million votes, beating out all the other candidates and the closest candidate Ted Cruz by 5.7 million votes.

At the start of the presidential primary there were 17 candidates, all pledging to support the winning candidate. This didn't happen. As a voting Republican most of my adult life I could not vote for any Politician that could not keep their word and support their party. They are no better than the Democratic candidate (Hillary Clinton) in being untruthful.

The elite of the GOP ought to be ashamed of themselves for not supporting and campaigning against Donald Trump (the candidate that the people voted for). What you told us is that we're not smart enough to know what we want, or what is good for us and we need our elected officials to make those decisions for us.

Ever hear this before? Sure you have! Speaker of the House, Democrat, Tip O'Neill spoke to the freshmen Congressmen (after they were sworn in) and another time Speaker of The House, Democrat, Nancy Pelosi,
before Congress repeated this behavior on voting for Obamacare. That was an insult to the voters who took the time to vote! They, the elite of the GOP, should be ashamed of themselves; although I don't believe they have any shame.

You say you want a Reagan Republican? Donald Trump may not be a Reagan Republican, but he ran
on the Republican ticket and won. Do you remember Reagan's 11th Commandment? Say nothing bad about a fellow Republican. Or doesn't that apply for the elite GOP leaders if they don't approve of the candidate that is not of their choosing?

You haven't done too well the last two elections, so why should we listen to you now. The Republican Party used to be a party of the people, by the people, for the people. Instead it's become a party of the party, for the party, by the party. You're a bunch of sore losers and party policy is more important then what the people want. It's all about party line.

We cannot afford another four years of a Democratic president. If that happens, you have yourselves to blame.

Lisa diMartino cares & is willing to fight for what she believes

To The Daily Sun,

I have known Lisa diMartino for several years and have been most impressed by her compassion, fire,
and courage. Besides her former service in the Statehouse she has served on the New Hampshire Governor's Commission on Disability, the New Hampshire Medical Care Advisory Committee, the Council for Youths with Chronic Conditions, the Disability Rights Center Board of Directors, and numerous other organizations concerned with human service issues.

I first remember her as a children's librarian here in Gilford. Her biggest quality to me is that she cares, and is willing to stand up and go toe-to-toe to fight for those causes. As the wife of a nursing home patient with Alzheimer's I can think of no stronger voice for his needs in Concord than Lisa.

Please elect Lisa diMartino as state representative from Gilford and Meredith.

Thea Aloise
