Shea-Porter has solid-golf record of accomplishment in Congress

To The Daily Sun,

As a veteran, I was glad to see former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter get endorsed again by the Veterans and Military Families for Progress. They said, "Ms. Shea-Porter's strong commitment to the issues that are critical to veterans, those serving now, and their families is unsurpassed."

I couldn't agree more. Carol Shea-Porter is the real deal. Too many politicians, including Congressman Frank Guinta, make a promise and then abandon veterans when it's time to actually vote for them. On the House Budget Committee, Frank Guinta actually voted against an amendment that war veteran Congressman Seth Moulton proposed to increase VA funding.

Carol Shea-Porter was a military spouse. She understands what it means to be in the military and always thanks her husband and all active duty service members, veterans, and their families for their service. She has a solid-gold record of accomplishment in Congress for all of us, and I am happy to see that record recognized and to see she has been endorsed by veterans.

Please join me in voting for Carol Shea-Porter for Congress in N.H. District 1 on Nov. 8.

Two-party system is just one party away from being a one-party system

To The Daily Sun,

In some ways, Trump's crank on power transition, post election, is becoming very effective, for as Obama defends democracy, the focus goes right back to the rigged Democratic primary. The American people are demoralized this election cycle. I don't care what side your are on. I'm on Jill Stein's side and I still feel it.

Those who defend the Democratic primary after five resignations within the DNC are obviously suffering worse yet, and Trump voters must sense the weakness of their boat. The amazing thing is that the media continues to have the masses believing that this is a two-horse race. People, there are four horses and to place your bet on — a loser or a liar. When you have two other very sensible options is surely proof that a hoax exists on the American public. Wake up American Zombies! This is the year of the third-party candidates.

The polls will be proven wrong on election day and in hindsight the system will implode as the media will be proven negligent. They already have been. It already is happening before our eyes. This is not going to go away at the end of this election cycle. We have entered a new phase and it will not be completed until several new political parties take hold and we witness a transition into a socialist style multiparty system.

Why? The two-party political system is just one party away from a one-party system. Thus we are adjacent to our old arch enemies. Whereas the socialist countries have political parties that are principled. Certainly there are ugly power grabs and struggles going on in their ranks, but ours is hideous in comparison. We all feel the dead end. The antidote for American Zombies is obvious. Get to the polls Nov. 8 to deliver your truth serum to the others.

Send a signal with your vote this year. Send a third-party signal. Buck the two-party system!
