Plymouth has a tax free motel with 4,000 guests every day

To The Daily Sun,

Well once again, the true residents of many New Hampshire communities have had their vote nullified. This determined action, usually every presidential election, is done by tens of thousands of out-of-state college students.

There is a serious flaw in the New Hampshire laws, that allow people who just domicile here, even on a temporary basis, to register and vote as if they actually reside here. There is a huge difference. To reside in a state and community, you have a firm financial commitment and one would expect, a desire for the state/community to thrive through good governance, and your presence for years to come.

College students only sleep here, because they have to, to attend daily classes. For the most part, their true commitment lies in their home state. Just drive through any college parking lot, mostly out-of-state license plates.

I live in Plymouth, a college town, where the student population exceeds the actual taxpaying residents, 2-to-1. I strongly object that they have equal rights to pick my state senator, rep, governor, selectman, dog catcher if it's an elected position. When I look at the voting of neighboring towns, that have only residents voting, its usually Republicans that win. Yes, the residents of Plymouth would also show much higher Republican tallies, if it were not for the dilution of their intent, by the out-of-state liberal students.

And to make it even worse, the college does not even pay us residents property taxes, yet we have to fund and man a police department and fire department to support the "needs" of 4,000 extra non taxpaying people that are domiciled here. It's like a tax free motel with 4,000 guests every day.

All attempts to right this wrong, have been previously thwarted due to Democratic governors and or legislators, ACLU, and other lobbyists who want to continue the undue Democratic ruling class. The wish of the people be damned.

I sincerely hope that a residency requirement to vote locally can pass in New Hampshire, now that we have a Republican House, Senate, and finally governor. I call upon all like-minded New Hampshire citizens, who want a true and fair New Hampshire vote to occur, to support said effort.

Anyone really believe all those Dem celebs will really move to Canada?

To The Daily Sun,

Thank you America for voting for Donald Trump. Politics is like sports; the party that has the strongest team wins. Team Deplorable beat the Democrat Elites. Team Deplorable was made up with factory workers, restaurant workers, veterans, police, farmers, truck drivers, forgotten rural people, and people that love the United States.

FYI: 16 countries have a female president. All we need to do in the United States is find a person that relates to all people, not just the elite.

Things that we can look forward to are:

— Conservative Supreme Court for years.
— Repeal of Obamacare.
— Repeal of all of President Obama' executive orders.
— An immigration policy that rewards legal immigration.
— An economy with good-paying jobs.
— Support for our police officers.
— A strong military.
— A VA that helps veterans.
— Education without Common Core.

There are others but this list will do for the first 100 days.

Here is a list of Democrats that said they would leave the United States if Trump were elected. I hope they did not lie and are packing their bags. Anyone of you readers want to guess how many will leave? How many of you care if they all leave? FYI: Barbra Streisand threatens to leave every time a Republican is elected president.

On a happy note, Trump has eliminated the Bush and Clinton dynasties.
