I am preparing myself to serve Laconia in the Statehouse

To The Daily Sun,

My name is Tom Dawson and I am running for the House of Representatives in Laconia.

Over the next two weeks I will be meeting with city leaders plus a verity of people (ministers, social workers, etc) who are familiar with the specific problems facing our city. I feel this is a good way to prepare to serve the Laconia constituency. From time to time I will be writing letters to the editor updating readers of my findings.

Tom Dawson

Candidate for State Representative

The domestic threat from Islamic terrorists likely to excalate

To The Daily Sun,

Is this administration committing another monstrous lie because the election is nigh?

We all remember Obama's role in concealing the true story of the Benghazi attack. He repeated the lie for two weeks, that it was an angry mob incensed by an obscure YouTube, anti-Islam video. Matthew Vadum correctly reminds us that he engaged in this ruse because the election was only weeks away and the nation must not find out that Obama's foreign policy was not decimating the nation's terrorist enemies.

The left wants us to forget that it was Secretary Clinton who commanded that Muammar Gaddafi must go, even though the dictator had been rendered toothless. "We came, we saw, he died," she cackled like a hoarse, talking raven sucking on helium. Quoth madam raven about Libya's totalitarian rule: "nevermore." Just one of dozens of wrong-headed decisions by a woman who wants to dictate all of our lives. Of course, this is just one example of the ongoing tragic consequence of the Obama/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy.

A just-leaked government report entitled, "Known or Suspected Terrorist (KST) Encounters" alleges an astounding 7,712 encounters between terrorists and law enforcement officials between July 20, 2015, and July 20,2016. The report is classified, "Unclassified/Law Enforcement Sensitive." The recent Islamist attacks of terror on our soil are only the most recent examples of a terrorist diaspora that may be ready to proliferate, according to a recent column by Daniel Greenfield. Diaspora refers to the movement of a population from its original homeland.

Suspected Islamist terrorists, Ahmad Khan Rahami in New York; Dahir Adan in Minnesota and Arcan Cetin at the Washington state mall are more than likely precursors to more frequent and imminent deaths and mayhem at the hands of radicalized, Islamist terrorists. If Ms. Clinton continues on with President Obama's feckless and misguided foreign policy and immigration and refugee tidal wave, then that great sucking sound will be the loss of our security, economy and freedoms essential to our unique way of life.

These alleged, recent ISIS acts of terror in our country are a direct result of President Obama's incongruous immigration policies. Policies that a President Clinton will likely continue. FBI Director James Comey has again warned us that the "anticipated exodus of fighters will be larger than that which flowed out of post-war Afghanistan in the 1980s." There will be a terrorist diaspora sometime in the next two to five years like we've never seen before."

Please, please, everyone, take the time to read these articles by scholars who know what they are talking about. Do read the writings of Dr. Sebastian L. Gorka and Raymond Ibrahim, Shillman Journalism Fellow, because they know their stuff and they are trying to warn us about a movement that has been killing the West with increasing ferocity.

Donald Trump has Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a highly respected intelligence officer, and Dr. Walid Phares, an American foreign terror expert who was born in Lebanon, as two of his foreign policy experts. Anyone know who is advising Hillary Clinton? Huma Abedin or Valerie Jarrett? Or perhaps some of Barack Obama's Muslim Brotherhood front group leaders?

"The Raven" poem by Edgar Allan Poe seems an apt and eerie analogy for what the left plans for our country. Hillary is the latest anointed leader of the left, ready to lead a distraught country into progressive darkness. Should she be elected our next president, then surely many of us will be spending the next four years reading "forgotten lore" about our nation's history, as we descend into the death of our sovereign soul. A metaphor for the death of the "beloved Lenore."

"Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary, over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore. This it is and nothing more." Is this phrase to be our lot in life, should the progressive, socialist left succeed in its otherworldly quest to transform this nation from pre-eminence to just another lost empire, within the madness that portends to offer magical global governance? A world where all cultures are finally made equal. A world where our Declaration of Independence and Constitution will become that "forgotten lore."

Yes indeed, the left, methinks, pretends another lie that will kill a nation, because another election is very soon nigh.
