Speaking with both candidates for sheriff on the radio on Saturday

To The Daily Sun,

Tuesday, Sept. 13, is the date for the New Hampshhire Primary election for both parties. That election will determine the Democrat and Republican who will be on the ballot in November for the winners of contested races for state and federal offices.
This Saturday I have former Laconia Police Chief Mike Moyer, and Deputy Bill Wright of the Belknap County Sheriff's Department. These two Republicans are seeking the nomination for sheriff, a two year term, for the November election winner. But first; the primary!
Saturday 8:10-8:8:40 for Moyer, and 9:30-10 for Wright. We are at 1350 am, and live stream wezs.com.

Should Hillary also be willing to die at 75, so she won't be a burden?

To The Daily Sun,

Most Trump naysayers state the intellectual Republican, and any intellectual voter, will turn to Hillary Clinton as the choice of educated voters. Baloney. A intelligent person with multiple secondary level degrees understands what the future USA will be under four to eight years of continued Democratic leadership. For example, a recent (letter) in The Laconia Daily Sun reminded your readers that one of the authors of Obamacare, a physician, stated beyond age 75 seniors "should be willing to simply die and not be a burden on society." Does this include Hillary, who should be willing to simply die and not be a burden on society in the final year of a second term? Nope. Elected officials play by another set of rules.

Apparently many pundits don't feel senior citizens posses the intellect to make a decision at the polls based on their best interests, including and especially those who are still living past the age of 75. You do not have to be a septuagenarian to have concerns. What purpose would "willing to simply die" serve? To produce Soylent Green to feed the starving multitudes under a socialist totalitarian government?

If you are a senior at any age, show intelligence by voting for Trump and the potential repeal of Obamacare before it may be too late. If you don't, you might end up in a green pill when you are still in your prime at age 75.

Age 70, built a 12' wooden kit boat. Age 76, constructed a 10' x 20' storage shed (framing, siding, roofing) that is almost complete. In between years, stripped carpet and linoleum and replaced with 12" wide pine flooring throughout three rooms including staining and applying polyurethane protective covering (three coats). Also removed carpet and replace with 5/8" finished flooring (to save time to grow old and die?) in the master bedroom. This fall, 15th year teaching at university and at community college. Six classes in total. Hopefully, will not be too big a burden on society this year.

Many seniors age 75+ are not ready to be made into Soylent Green. Life can be good in your 70s. Ask Trump. He will make America great again for anyone any age.
