Latest Attacks on New Hampshire Liberties & Freedoms and the infringement of NH Constitutional rights

My response to hate and the ridiculous; Letter To The Editor, Laconia Daily Sun LTE Jan. 11, 2021 Belknap County Delegation...
is:

I am glad I have spoken with so many Center Harbor & New Hampton residents who heard and understood that I am a man of peace and that I nor my campaign would get involved in these types of political rhetoric. "... It is time for reasonable, pragmatic, and patriotic Belknap County citizens to stand up ... " and renounce this type of political rhetoric made to incite hate and division in our towns as they have managed to do nation-wide and even in New Hampshire.

I have wondered how long the anti-constitution provocateurs would take to get around to politically attacking me. They have presently been attacking many NH residents from Legislators, Police Chiefs, business owners and the public for having any viewpoint which is not approved by them. My readers may want to ask, when will their family members be next on the attack list.

During the Jan. 6th NH House session in the UNH parking lot I had vote ("NAY") down the NH Democrat's many proposed rules and amendments which were embarrassing and degrading to the NH House membership with the Orwellian attempts to imply; that there is a hostile and unsafe environment with sexual harassment, wrongspeak, thought crimes, racism, alcohol, illegal drugs, dangerous weapons, and to micro manage committee chairs, impose time limits on public testimony, implement re-education classes, and allowed to abstain from votes.

During the House session, isolated in the car listening to session on the FM radio, since I do not own a cell phone. I had numerous times voted against the previously mentioned insulting rules and amendments. Towards the end of the session another motion was made to suspend the rules which appeared to be an attempt to once again try to propose another amendment to embarrass the NH House, this time about implied violence in Concord at the NH State House which I did not understood and confused me thus I voted NAY once again this time to not to suspend the rules we have just voted on to hear more information. As Belknap 1 Rep., I will only vote on items that have been discussed and debated, not on emotional based items with no facts nor information. I still believe that when suspension to the rules are called it will be after a presentation of what and why with discussion before hand.

I have met many persons who do condone and legislate for violence to the unborn human but I digress. Back to the topic of voting on submissions of last minute items for emotional, a play for power, or to force an agenda, I will try not to be part of. I do not believe I will ever "chicken out" and abstain on a roll call and will vote NAY on items which had no advanced information such as Congress does to pass bills that are repugnant to our Constitution.

When the NH House was recessed and before leaving the parking lot I got out of the car and spoke with House members who informed me what had happened at the US Capital which they were following on their cell phones and that rule #11 was actually condemning the violence in DC.
Afterward I discovered there were at least four other representatives who also misunderstood what the suspension was in reference to or did not have enough information about the D.C.events and voted against it.

I am against the breaching the US Capital which I had witness on videos taken on Jan. 6th. and condemn the violence that occurred


Bill (New Hampton) Nov.9,2020: Encourage DEPT OF EDUC Commissioner Edelblut, a great guy, via Exec. Asst. Angela Adams 603 271 3144 Angela.Adams@doe.nh.gov

Tom: I will paraphrase Bill's emails topics;

NH efforts of English as a second language are disappointing, pronunciation is a big problem that frustrates students, an interactive voice playback could help correct mispronunciations.

Contact ---- ---, Chairman of the Board of -- -- --- --- for details of their education initiative. We can talk about that if you're interested.

Parents who can't afford private schooling should home school, there are free online educational resources from Pre-K to university. E.g., Educational Resources...
, Educational Videos...

Building Codes. Hard to buy houses, real estate prices per square foot are ridiculous. Bill offered to discuss and explain a way to address this to help NH grow!

Tom: Bill, thank you for the links, contacts, info., and the invite to brainstorm to make NH better. I will review and study your your suggestions and make arrangement to meet and discuss your ideas.

Robert's (New Hampton) Dec. 11, 2020: Concern about widespread election fraud and state legislators have the constitutional power to act, Article II, Section 1 to represent lawful voters.

Tom: I am in support of examining NH elections and voting statutes. It had quickly appeared to me that both of NH's main political parties are not interested in "rocking the election boat" and asking the NH SOS and NH ATTY Gen. to confirm that the NH elections are fair with only legal ballots. My belief is that Belknap 1 citizens concerned with election integrity should consider calling / writing their NH party leadership, Governor, Sec. of State, and/or Atty Gen. to inform them to confirm that there are no irregularities in NH elections.
As a freshman NH House Rep., I have a lot learn how the mechanics of deflecting constitutional issues in the House can be over come.

Mike (Center Harbor) Dec.12,2020: Long discussion of the latest NH media's and Republicans' announcements, articles, and LTEs denouncing the Belknap County Delegation.

Tom: A short take on the discussion about the political jabs....
Yes Virginia, there are Republicans working along-side other ideologies against NH conservatives and constitutionals!

I understood that the Dec. 8th county meeting was accessible to the public and the historical amount of the public was present.
With respect for those thinking otherwise and/or a different view of reality. I voted, satisfying the NH Constitutional mandate, to meet before the second Wednesday of Dec. then to recess the public part until a better venue for public input was available, and also to nullify the implied lawsuits which would have been a waste of taxpayers' money if the delegation did not reschedule.

More than half of the delegation wore a face covering.
Though OSHA PPE trainers understand these masks do not prevent the transmission of viruses.

I wear one because I do not wish to add to the population's COVID hysteria nor give the higher levels in the NHGOP leadership additional reasons to divide the membership through shaming.
I recognize the dangers in blind conformity and am not part of NH Government's attempts to further its control over citizens' daily lives.
Do Not Become A Sheep...

My platform was to represent the district's concerns and being asked by Belknap 1 residents who were mortally afraid of the spread of COVID, I wear a face-covering in public. In addition, it should help prevent the spread of some bacteria and a mask is an opportunity to have discussions with pro mask believers about any hypocrisy of saving elderly lives but sanctioning the killing of those yet born.

Jonathan (New Hampton): Questioned the reply about the wearing of masks.

Tom: The social debate on mask effectiveness will continue.
I personally believe that asymptomatic persons have the right to make their own choices.
That said:

The mandate of wearing a mask has not been shown as a Constitutional infringement.
If there is even a slight chance of prevention, the wearing of a mask should be encouraged.
Four persons replied, all were concerned about the not wearing of masks.
I ran on Promising to Represent the District and put the Residents' concerns first therefore I will honor that pledge to support the NH Constitution and the residents' concerns.
Even if asymptomatic I will wear a mask in proximity to others to help prevent both contamination and anxiety.

Will Sent an update of Gov. Sununu's Nov. 19 COVID mask announcement and re-asked his prior question.

Tom: I have campaigned to represent our district and going forth I will devote my time and efforts to the residents of Belknap 1.
Non-residents are asked to contact their elected officials about non-Belknap 1 issues. I may consider time to time to interact with non-residents if deemed relevant.
In regards to the Nov. 19th COVID mask announcement; I have read but not yet researched this latest announcement. It does appear off-hand as another infringement on one's individual rights but not on a Constitutional right as did previous orders.

Will had asked: As our newly elected rep for New Hampton, please explain your philosophy on wearing masks inside (stores)...

Tom: I do not wear a mask for multiple reasons, one of which is that asymptomatic blood donors who tested positive for corona virus antibodies are notified and their blood can now be used to help symptomatic patients Blood Screening Article.... I've practised altruism since 1990 and live my life without fear and suggest that a way for those wishing to help others afflicted with COVID-19 to contact the Red Cross and become a donor. NH Red Cross...



Taxes & Budget:
I will OPPOSE any Income Tax or general Sales Tax.
I will work to remove Capital Gain & Dividend taxes to help NH retired residents.
I support the repeal of the Communication Services Tax and Electricity Consumption Tax.
As a fiscal conservative, I will be a fiduciary to maintain a sound and secure revenue structure to provide the state funds for balanced budgets.
The state can not keep spending, bonding, and legislating unfunded mandates and downshifting expenses by continuing to reduce funding to towns that drive up property taxes and mortgages for future generations.
I will only vote on a balanced budget not funded by a general Income Tax or Sales Tax.

Regulations & Business:
I will NOT vote for new regressive regulations which prevent responsible individuals, families, and business the opportunity to prosper and live freer with less governmental intrusions in their daily lives.

2nd Amendment:
I support the US Constitution 2nd Amendment and for an unrestricted NH Article 2-a to freely exercise the right to keep and bear arms. I will fight to repeal the existing state infringements on the 2nd A.

Law Enforcement:
I DO NOT support even the notion of Defunding the Police!
I oppose influences and organizations attacking our First Responders and New Hampshire safety values.
With 44 years as a First Responder, working closely with Law Enforcement, I support the Police and accountability of all parties.
I Do Not support Police abuse. I will support legal protection for both Law Enforcement in reporting of misconduct with the ranks and for Department Heads for the removal of personnel.
New Hampshire Law Enforcement's primary Constitutional responsibility is the Protection of Live, Liberty, Property, and the prevention of imminent harm.
I believe in Peace Officers and Constitutional Sheriffs.
I will be pro-active in educating police officials of their oath to the Constitution and their Duty not to
enforce un-Constitutional statues, laws, and ordinances

Education:
Quality education is the goal of both the State and parents.
Parents are responsible for the education of their children and have the responsibility to decide the best avenue and education for their child.
The State must guaranty the availability of quality education and standardize testing.
Educational funding needs to be allocated to the student, not institutions.
I support school-choice and allow students to learn at the level of their ability.

Environment:
I am concern with many of the problems that are affecting the quality of our Lakes Region:
levels of lead (loons, children)
environment mercury and cadmium
submerged utilities
wake boats
invasive species

I believe they need to be discussed and ask organizations and residents to assist me to bring forth potential environmental hazards and a common-sense approach in addressing the issue.

Paid Family Leave:
I am open to a voluntary paid family leave program with a manageable op in/out provision.

General Court:
I pledge:
As Belknap District 1 Representative I will attempt to make every vote and committee meeting.
I will represent all of the residents, the district, the NH Lakes Region, and the state of New Hampshire.
I will be available weekly to meet and listen to residents.
I will refrain from Concord & D.C. political parties' rhetoric or resistance and will work with all others on non-restrictive Constitutional bills.

I am eager to listen to your questions and expectations.
