The 1st in the nation 2016 Presidential Primary Election takes place in New Hampshire on Tuesday February 9th.  

Selecting one candidate from the Republican and Democratic parties to be their nominee for president is the purpose of the election. Making that selection can be challenging… there are lots of things to be considered:  HONESTY / INTEGRITY / LEADERSHIP EXPERIENCE / DEFENSE OF THE CONSTITUTION and BILL OF RIGHTS / PROTECTION OF AMERICA & ITS CITIZENS / GLOBAL POLICY / CAPITALISM VS PROGRESSIVISM / ETC.  

President Obama made so many promises to America, yet so many have turned out unkept. Clearly he did not deliver on his administration being the “most transparent” with so many scandals and cover-ups.  As the first black president, he had the opportunity to bring this country together in so many ways, but here we are with American citizens more polarized than at any time in modern history…racially, economically, militarily and politically!  Our country is weaker in the world, and the staggering national debt that doubled under Obama’s presidency must be addressed before it cripples our country and destroys it.  The UNITED STATES needs a real leader... one that can unite our country, strengthen security and return prosperity.  

When we go to the polls on Tuesday, we must think about all that our fathers and forefathers sacrificed for this country. We must also think about our children and grandchildren and the future we want for them. America did not get ahead by tearing down the strong, but by aspiring its people to greatness.  We need to give everyone hope and dignity and that includes giving those in need a hand UP, not just a handout. People need to feel good about themselves. People also need to support good family values, as that is the basis of a strong society.  

Before to going to the polls on Tuesday, make sure YOU know what ALL the candidates stand for, and know their history, then cast your vote.  Remember… being an informed voter is your civic duty.  

On Tuesday February 9th BE SURE TO VOTE!  



POLLING TIMES:  
Most polls are open 8am to 7pm. Make sure you have your photo ID with you. Check with your local town hall for more information.
