To The Daily Sun,
Wow, take a look over here. The first lady from Michigan, social conservative Senator Jeanie Forrester, gubernatorial candidate, stated in an interview with the (Concord) Monitor, that when she gets elected as governor that she will consider deploying the New Hampshire National Guard to patrol the New Hampshire borders with Canada and Massachusetts to stop the flow of drugs coming into New Hampshire.
Picture it, Friday afternoon, Checkpoint Charlie I-93 North, National Guard armored Hummer's blocking the interstate violating your Fourth Amendment rights with a car to car search looking for illegal drugs through your three-month-old's diaper bag, and while the backup extends to the Rhode Island border a big pharmacy truckload of "legal," addictive opiate painkillers and narcan drives right past on the way to your local Rite-Aid store.
The millions upon millions spent this year by the big government in Concord, just like the billions before it fighting the war on drugs, just hasn't had the effect the lunatic fringe was hoping for. So the National Guard, between deployments, will patrol our state's borders, for "free."
This notion of mobilizing the National Guard for instate heroin interdiction is absurd and insane. I'm sure that the acting commander of the New Hampshire National Guard might have something to say about this stupid harebrained idea.
This fiscal conservative Navy veteran, has much more realistic candidates to choose from in September.
