To The Daily Sun,
Republican State Rep. Al Baldasaro is on both the (House) State-Federal Relations Committee and the Veterans Affairs Committee in Concord. He is a retired Marine. And he is an embarrassment to the state of New Hampshire.
As a veteran, I am horrified that this man who served (presumably) with honor would advocate for the death of someone with whom he disagrees vehemently. That right there is the danger of the right wing of the Republican Party. This is extremism no different that Islamic extremists, white supremacists, or the violent aspect of Black Lives Matter. None whatsoever.
If I cannot yell "Fire!" during a movie at the Gilford 8 without consequence, he should not be allowed to advocate for murder of a presidential candidate. This isn't 1864. And this is what a Trump candidacy is offering us. They've offered no ideas — no great vision. Nope — just more name-calling, histrionics, vulgar and sexist memes, and violence.
Is this what America wants? Is this what Baldasaro's community of Londonderry wants? I urge people to look at the Libertarian ticket of Gary Johnson and William Weld as an alternative to this mockery of a campaign.
