Concord Monitor Letter to the Editor from Greg Ives, Chapter 37

There are New Hampshire political office candidates who signed a five-part pledge:  to cut spending, cut taxes, and cut the size of government, to support the right-to-work-for-less law, and to uphold and support the U.S. and New Hampshire Constitutions.

According to the Constitutions, government is established to insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity.

Every member of the community has a right to be protected by it, in the enjoyment of life, liberty, and property; and is therefore bound to share in the expense of such protection.

Supporting the Constitutions means providing and supporting public services.

Both Constitutions give the people the right to peaceably assemble.

Article I, Section 10, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution prohibits any State from passing any law impairing the obligations of contracts.

Collective bargaining agreements are contracts between businesses who chose to enter into such agreements with workers.  To pass a law denying the right of a business from doing so is contrary to the Constitutions.

Responsible public spending and is desirable.  Government provides services at a reasonable cost.  Right-to-work-for-less wants to privatize public services, offering workers low-wage jobs, with profits going into CEO pockets, rather than providing good jobs for your neighbors.

Support candidates that support the responsible public services you rely on and your neighbors who deliver them.
