by Gordon Duff, Staff Writer

Every special interest group from the doctor's union (American Medical Association) to the US Chamber of Commerce and National Association of Manufacturers (the "starvation wage"/no insurance lobby), not to mention "big tobacco" or "big oil," owns abig chunkof our government, bought and paid for with the kind of money no veteran's group will ever be able to match. The Hatch Act, a law ignored when the illegal lobbying is done to help the boys in the last paragraph, is supposed to outlaw political activity in the military and federal agencies. Veterans groups push here, push there and spin their wheels with "big show/no go" controversies like "flag burning" but too often back political candidates that are neither veterans nor supporters of military and veterans issues, real "quality of life" issues.

It is alsoour intent to informthe viewer that their legislators will once again be voting on gay marriage this week and that they shouldurge them to put "principal over politics."

When Governor Lynch sought our votes, he promised he opposed gay marriage.

 

LYNCH In Debate

“I do not support gay marriage”

 

 

ANNCR

Now the governor says ...

 

 

ANNCR

...he’s looking through a “broader lens” and is prepared to legalize gay marriage.

 

That’s politician-speak for he’s breaking his word to us.

 

ANNCR

No wonder the Union Leader is calling him “Governor Flinch,” saying he’s abandoned principle.

 

ANNCR

But New Hampshire shouldn’t flinch from principle. Call your legislators and demand they defeat the gay marriage bill. Because principle should count for more than politics.
