I was cheering for you in 2016 and rooting for you now. I do have a comment. I'd like to see a much stronger war on meth trafficking, such as involving the Mexican govt and US military in destroying meth producers and traffickers. It's caused a lot of ruined lives, a lot of petty crime and some violent crime in my state and many other states, and adds greatly to the corruption within Mexico. I support relaxing rather than tightening the borders with Mexico and Canada, doing away with Trump's border nonsense, and enlisting Mexican help with a real war on drugs. I'd happily support "foreign aid" to fight corruption in Mexico, and happily support the US military bombing the crap out of drug traffickers wherever they are found. I support this rather than the wimpy law enforcement route to ending drug trafficking.

I like your positions. I would urge one new emphasis. I've seen many people hurt by meth addiction, and a lot of petty crime and some violent crime that's resulted from addiction. I would like to see a REAL war on drugs with the US military conducting strikes on producers, traffickers and drug lords, with international cooperation from countries such as Mexico. I don't support Trump's border nonsense, but instead I favor more open borders, easier passage in and out of the country to Mexico and Canada, better relations with Mexico, and funding to help Mexico address the growing corruption resulting from drug trafficking. They need help with a good effective war on drugs too, and I wouldn't complain if the Air Force were to bomb drug facilities and mansions of drug lords.

Hello! I like the positions you have posted here, and I have one comment related to the opioid addiction problem and position. That is, in my state of Kansas there is a very serious and destructive meth problem that is ruinous to many users. I support far stronger supervision of those with meth addiction, and far stronger punishment for dealers, especially the higher-up dealers who bring meth to this state in bulk. It ruins people's thinking, makes them impulsive and incompetent, worsens emotional problems, and results in a huge amount of petty theft that's very inconvenient to the wellbeing of theft victims and communities. Far stiffer penalties and better enforcement and capture of dealers are needed. The problem isn't just in this state. A national solution is needed with cooperation of other countries where meth producers and traffickers are located (Mexico, etc). We really don't need the border fussing that Trump has created to sour relations between the US and Mexico---we need more cooperation, borders that are more open, and assistance to Mexico to uproot the growing drug-financed corruption in that country. I would be happy to see the US military carry out a REAL war on drugs that goes after producers, traffickers and drug lords with the US Air Force, bomb the crap out of identifiable targets and put an end to the drug trafficking plague in this country.

We can't fix a democratic Government since we are not a Democratic Government we are a Republic Government with Democratic values. Unless you haven't recited the pledge of allegiance lately it still states "to the republic for which it stands" which is a Government of the people for the people by the people. So as we are still a Republic should we still value the winner of the presidency from the electoral college vote or the popular vote? Which brings me to my next question if it's now the popular vote then was the electoral college vote wrong since John Adams?

Health insurers should Initiate a major medical policy that everyone must join. Government should provide free of charge annual checkups and preventitive care. This might work.

Good morning David, Currently, the Salvation Army has the resources to open new addiction-recovery centers in NH at no cost to the State, but owing to current underutilization of their existing recovery centers in Maine and Massachusetts, they have opted to conserve their resources and remain outside the state. Can something be done to change this situation? What if a bill were proposed in the NH legislature that, if passed, would require the State's detox centers and courts to send their patients and inmates to free out-of-state recovery centers, so long as beds are available? The justification for the law would be that it would save the NH taxpayers money, and would create the demand for additional privately-funded centers to open in cities like Manchester, Nashua and Laconia. If you agree that passing a law could bring free, privately-funded recovery services to NH residents, I can work with my local state representative to promote the needed legislation. I have provided contact information below for the Salvation Army's Portland adult recovery center.

I believe it would be beneficial to observe daylight savings time permanently or switch to Atlantic Standard Time like other neighbor states are proposing to do. It should be a popular vote and not left to the hands of the NH Senate.

It was uncomfortable for me to breastfeed after delivery because the milk was not passing out smoothly, but my nurse helped me to feed the baby properly, and I became habitual of feeding the baby gradually.
