Vote for Romney on Tuesday
As we head to the polls this coming Tuesday, Republicans will have 30 candidates to choose from (it’s time to raise the filing fee). Tere is no doubt that whomever we select as our candidate will be facing a well- financed Barrack Obama in November. President Obama cannot run on his record of achievement; he has little of which to be proud. We can expect that this campaign will be the most negative one of our lives. We need a candidate who can withstand the scrutiny of the coming attack. Mitt Romney is that candidate. Not only is Mitt the candidate who can best withstand the attack, he also happens to be the candidate who will be best able to turn the economy around. What this country needs most at this point in our history is an entrepreneur who knows how to take a failing business and make it successful. Mitt has done that with multimillion dollar corporations as well as with the Olympics. While the size of those enterprises may be dwarfed by the federal budget (what isn’t?), the principles of turning around a business and bringing government under control are the same. While other Republican candidates talk about the need to turn the ship of state around, none of them has the proven experience of Mitt. As Governor of the State of Massachusetts, Mitt was all but a lone voice for conservative spending; he understood what needed to be done to turn Massachusetts’ huge deficit into a surplus and he succeeded. It seems clear to me that a businessman who has taken nearly bankrupt companies and made them profitable and who also took control of the Government of Massachusetts and left it with a surplus is exactly the man we need at a time when our economy is about to be overwhelmed by government spending and the resulting deficit. We cannot afford another four years of huge deficit spending, nor can
we afford to take a chance on theories and rhetoric. We need proven experience. Please join with me in voting for Mitt Romney to be the Republican nominee for President of the United States.

Dave Wilder - Hudson Don’t be Fooled by Campaign Promises
As we approached the New Hampshire Primary it is important to look at what, not who, will be elected. Unique in the world the President of the United States is both head of State and head of Government. Te President is not, however, the policy maker or setter of the United States as such. Rather the President is a manager, an administrator of the executive operations imposed upon him by the Legislative branch. Look at our Constitution, Article II, to see what our President is. Te
President is elected for a four-year term and is: 1). “Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States” 2). able to “require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices” 3). “Grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment” 4). “with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties” 5). “with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law” 6). “fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session”
Tat is all the President is authorized to do by the Constitution; certainly nothing less and absolutely nothing more. Te President cannot make law, the President cannot make treaties by himself; the President cannot not appoint “Czars” or inferior officers without a law allowing him to so do. Te President cannot even appoint a representative of his administration to a foreign power without approval from the Senate (the Senate representing the several states). Te President does not set policy nor does the President have the power
to create what are called inferior, that is, non-constitutionally created, offices unless specifically authorized to do so by law passed by Congress. Te President reports to Congress from time-to-time regarding the State of the Union under his administration. Indeed, if the President is incapacitated, the power of the Executive passes not to another member of
the Executive but rather to the Legislative Branch; first to the President of the Senate (the Vice President) and then to the Speaker of the House. When Congress is not in session, it is the duty of the Executive Branch
to assure that each of the states enjoys a republican form of government. By inference, it is the duty of Congress thus to also insure each of the several States a republican form of government when they are in session (Article IV, section 4). Te point is fellow voters, what we are voting for on January 10 is not a person making promises to do this or do that, fix this or that, cut this or that. Anyone making that promise is demonstrating a woeful lack of understanding of the Constitution. Tis is not a popularity contest nor a beauty contest. We are not voting for a person, we are voting for their skill and ability. What we are voting for is the best possible manager or administrator available who can work with Congress to enforce existing laws, recommend removal of offensive laws and recommend policy adaptations to enhance the nature of this union of sovereign States called Te United States of America.
Jordan Ulery - Hudson Expanded Gambling Means Jobs for NH
As a state representative from Merrimack, I consider it my top priority to support ideas that will provide good-paying jobs for my constituents and for the people of New Hampshire. Next month, I will proudly vote in favor of HB 593, a bill that would
allow for a limited expansion of gambling to our state. Tis bill is a major job creator. New Hampshire will soon feel the effects of new casinos opening in
Massachusetts. Jobs, economic development and tourism revenue will disappear in a pipeline to the Bay State. But it’s not too late to act. If we expand gambling and allow for two casinos, it will result in thousands of new jobs. It’ll boost our economy. And it will stop the flow of our dollars funding the Massachusetts budget. Let’s keep those dollars here and let’s provide a new attraction for visitors and tourists. Our Legislature had to make significant cuts to keep our budget in
balance. More cuts will be needed when we lose millions in lottery sales and rooms and meals tax revenue to Massachusetts. Te New Hampshire Center for Public Policy Studies predicts millions in lost dollars if we don’t act.
Tell lawmakers to support HB 593. Dick Hinch – Merrimack
Toughts on Irritating People I watch CBS’s Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood almost every
Sunday and this morning, Christmas Morning, they had a segment on about people who have passed away during this year. One of the names on the list was Dr. Jack Kevorkian, and years ago Andy Rooney, who also just passed away, during his interview with Dr. Jack Kevorkian asked Dr. Kevorkian what he did for fun. Dr. Kevorkian replied that to have fun, he irritated people. Now I’m not foolish enough to compare myself to either of those two men and I’m not sure if I actually set out to intentionally irritate people when I write anything at all to Hudson~Litchfield News, but I guess that purely by accident, that I may have irritated somebody. Since I am undecided about my intentionally irritating anybody, I’m
not sure if I should intentionally apologize, but I’ll intentionally let you all know when I make up my mind.
