Meet my opponent

A video of my opponent at a PorcFest, the annual gathering of the Free State Movement. He is referred to as "The Don" by those who want to eliminate government and change NH as we know it. Some of us moved to New Hampshire because of what it has to offer. The Free Staters moved here to change it. PorcFest 2006

Why do a couple of Texas oil billionaires can whether I am elected?

Another attack mailing paid for by Karl Rove's Americans for Prosperity [or prosperity for some of us] has arrived-filled with misrepresentations and distortions.

Locally both Dick Snow and I have been attacked by the Koch Brothers funded organization, as well as a Libertarian funded group. Think they might be trying to buy legislatures throughout the country? ALEC sponsored bills dominated the NH legislature for the past two years. Some of these national agenda bills have already been re-introduced in NH for the coming session.

Grazing Youtube

Several people have sent me links to other videos of my opponent. It got me thinking about what might be out there about me. Here is is, a thing I made for a conference on citizen journalism: Starting The Forum. A wise choice on someone's part to make the photo be of Adi Rule rather than me.

To whom much is given ... .

Someone should remind Ann Coulter about Luke.

I am not going to repeat what Coulter said in her tweet, but this is a response by a more intelligent and compassionate young man: an-open-letter-to-ann-coulter.

Compared to my opponent

I am not running for office to promote some personal agenda; I am running to restore balance and serve my constituents. I have demonstrated a commitment to my constitutents with legislation I have filed in the past [see posts below], often across Party lines, and with attention to local issues and involvement in events in the four communities.

My opponent sought the Libertarian candidacy for president in 2000 and is very involved in the Free State Project. He seeks to eliminate government, expand gun rights and eliminate shared responsibility for our state and to our fellow citizens. When serving in the past he did not meet with constituents and continues to only seek interaction with Republican and Libertarian voters.  He is running to promote his own anti-government agenda not represent his constituents

George McGovern died today

George McGovern died today.  He was the first candidate for whom I worked as an adult and a voter. 

A man of integrity who fought for what was right for the country--who understood that old men planned wars but young men died--who served his country in war but fought so that others would not have to do so. 

A man who told the truth about the lies told by those in power but was ignored until we could ignore it no longer--who suffered an electoral defeat because of it but truly would rather be right than president. 

A man  who was never without dignity and compassion, who worked across the aisle to end hunger, and who made us proud to be progressive.
