People who feel strongly about their 'rights' have taken to the streets

To The Daily Sun,

What is right and just? Each Sunday I hear the words uttered as part of a ritual during mass. At the risk of offending those who choose to debate religion, I would like to put my spin on the meaning of those two conceptual ideas. First, let me be clear, I'm not alluding to the possessive right. I am talking about that which is the opposite of wrong. So, then, we are talking about what is morally accepted by society. In other words, what we, collectively, should strive for when dealing with our fellow human beings. It is a fairly easy concept to understand, but very hard to live by. Selfishness keeps getting in the way.

When a society loses sight of what is right, it should turn to those who are appointed to judge the right or wrongness of actions. In other words, they, the judges, are there to make sure the actions are just. Recently the justice system has been bypassed. People who feel strongly about their “rights” have taken to the streets. Absent a justice system based on moral principles and a constitution that attempts to help guide us in the achieving of fairness, we have potential anarchy. Marches should be to air grievances, not demean another segment of society. Our governmental authorities need to define the parameters required during peaceful demonstrations. Once a group crosses the line by denigrating their fellow citizens and physically threatening them, the police can and should intervene and quell the out of control and riotous behavior.

Migliore is a creative problem solver & an excellent listener

To The Daily Sun,

As a former state representative and former deputy majority leader of the N.H. House, I am honored to formally endorse Vincent Paul Migliore for state representative for Grafton District 9 in the special election that will be held September 5. Vincent is a successful small businessman with the experience and skill sets to effectively represent you in Concord. As a 10-year member of the Newfound School Board, he has worked tirelessly, effectively and honorably as an elected official to solve the problems and deal with issues affecting our local communities.

Vincent has laid-out specific, detailed plans for addressing the opioid epidemic and other issues facing New Hampshire. We need him in Concord because his knowledge, experience and attention to detail in designing effective, sensible solutions clearly sets him head and shoulders above his opponent.

Mr. Migliore is a creative problem-solver and an excellent listener. He understands public service, and he understands the impact of taxes and regulations on our people, businesses and institutions. His reasoned, rational, balanced approach will enable us to continue building a better future for New Hampshire.

Please remember to vote on Tuesday, September 5, (the day after Labor Day) in this important special election. If you live in Grafton, Alexandria, Bristol, Bridgewater or Ashland, please make it a point to go to the polls, and cast your vote for a successful, respected, experienced leader.

Please vote for Vincent Paul Migliore on Tuesday, September 5.

Bob Giuda
State Senator
N.H. District 2
