Letter: Democrats suppress constitutional principles

Published: 1/4/2019 12:01:16 AM

A political democracy is where the political majority determines the fate of the political minority. Two wolves and a sheep deciding what to have for dinner is the classic way of describing democracy.

On Jan. 2, in the first session of the 400-member New Hampshire House of Representatives, the newly elected Democratic majority voted to disarm the Republican minority, essentially deeming that that minority was a danger to the peace and safety of the institution. The vote illustrated the stark nature of the current political divide in both New Hampshire, and the nation.

The vote also demonstrated Democrats’ willingness to suppress constitutional principles, in this case the right of self-defense, when constitutional principles get in the way of Democrats exercising power. And it illustrated to anyone concerned for the defense of our inalienable rights that evil has arrived in the State House with a vengeance.

Until the next New Hampshire election, and certainly as long as Democrats are in power anywhere, it will not only be our wallets that will be in danger but our fundamental rights as well.
