Letter To The Editor


“What do we mean by the American Revolution?” asked John Adams in a letter to Hezekiah Niles in 1818.


“Do we mean the American War?  


[No] The Revolution was effected before the war commenced.  


The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people... this radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.”


What was the “radical change” Adams spoke of?


In 1760  most Americans viewed themselves as loyal subjects of the king.  His word was law. Disobeying him inconceivable.


By 1775, most Americans viewed the King as the biggest single threat to their right to life, liberty and to own and control their own property.


The “change” Adams spoke of was that in the years between approximately1760 and 1775, most Americans adopted as their own John Locke’s concept of Natural Law, i.e., that every individual has a right to their life, their liberty, and to own and control their own property.


As a result, Americans stopped seeing themselves as “subjects”.


Instead, they started seeing themselves as individuals having certain rights, rights that should be protected by their government, not violated.


Most Americans today view government in much the same way as Americans viewed the King before the revolution.


Most Americans today all but worship government. 


They cannot imagine life with so much as one less government program, department, or worker. 


Despite all the flag waiving (sic) and chest-pounding, most Americans do not have the desire, the will, or the courage to be free.


They are, in fact, petrified at the very thought of being free and the responsibilities that come with being free.


For that very reason, we need another revolution... a radical change in the hearts and minds of the American people...

Letter To The Editor

Spring is here and what a beautiful day! 

Spring work is going fine…


We are scheduling a special joint meeting with me, the engineer Tom French, the Board of Selectmen and the residents of Chestnut Pond Road to come in and discuss their concerns on the proposed paving to Chestnut Pond Road on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 at 6:30pm. If interested, please meet in the Town Offices Meeting Room.


Have a wonderful day and week.


Bless you.

To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,

This week, the House met very briefly. SB101, prohibiting the state from mandating Common Core, had a confusing debate; the proponents talked about how wonderful common Core is, and then insisted it wasn’t mandated! Our discussions with school board members have shown that most school boards think it is – so clarifying that detail seemed important. SB101 passed, 202-138.


SB195, encouraging (not requiring) schools to teach cursive handwriting and multiplication tables, was also debated, both on the merits of learning cursive and whether or not we should require it (or “encourage” it!) It finally passed, 186-155; I voted against after finally deciding that we shouldn’t “encourage” teaching anything.


I proposed an amendment to SB181, which allowed Fish & Game to impose a new registration fee for hunter education classes, making the fee a credit against a hunting license. The committee chair opposed this amendment, claiming that the department was unable to put the fee into the same account they used for license fees – and revealing that the hunter education classes were fully funded by federal funds, so the registration fee would displace federal money! I wasn’t the only one who thought that Fish & Game was poorly managed: the amendment passed, 183-162, but the bill was then tabled, by the committee, 188-158.


SB47, repealing authorization of subminimum wages for disabled people, was only before us for the speeches. It passed by acclamation. SB16, exempting slalom water skiers from needing an observer on board, passed without debate. SB46, creating a 45-member commission on radio interoperability, was briefly debated and passed, 214-124; I voted against it because I had doubts about a 45 member group being able to accomplish anything.


Interested readers can email me for my newsletter, with more details than fit here.
