New Hampshire truly is a great place to live

To The Daily Sun,

Here is a response to Todd Welch's letter of Aug.18. I was driving South on I-93 and entered the Hooksett Tolls. When I went to hand the toll collector my $1, he told me that the car in front had paid my toll. I was a little surprised. I say little because this has happened to my wife and I four of five times in the past few years.

This is the unusual part. I have driven from Maine to Texas, up and down the East Coast, as well as thru Germany, France, Belgium, Austria, Switzerland and even tiny Luxembourg and never, ever had this happen before, anywhere else.

The next thing you are probable wondering, what did you do next, cheapo? Well, of course at the next toll, when there was actually someone behind me, I paid it forward and paid his toll as well. The last time I did this it was for a Massachusetts driver, who raced up and gave me a big grin and a thumbs up.

New Hampshire truly is a great place to live and little kindnesses like these show me it is a civilized place as well.

If another Clinton is elected, it will bring 4-8 more years of govermental growth

To The Daily Sun,

John F. Kennedy, a staunch Democrat from Massachusetts, said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." My, how the leaders of that party have changed that tune! For them today, "Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what your country can do for you" has a far better tone to it.

Our forefathers cautioned that a day of political revolution would become necessary to eliminate growing government power. Nov. 8 should be a peaceful revolution at the ballot box throwing out the socialist direction that the Democratic Party no longer tries to hide. That party's direction can and has already started to lead to a totally dependent society in the United States. If another Clinton is elected, it will bring four to eight more years of government growth.

A totalitarian government is not what the founders of this country envisioned for its residents, nor should it be our vision. Most prefer to preserve the USA (United States of America) over the idea of a Democratic Party's USA — a United Socialist America — that is on the immediate horizon under a Clinton administration. The government that we must avoid at all cost is a totalitarian one and the only way to do so is by voting Republican on Nov. 8 in order "to make America great again" as only one candidate has repeatedly promised he will help us to do. Us. Not her. Or them.
