Americans Want Less Government
Americans Want Less Government

By Ken Sheffert

Democrats nationally and regionally have consistently voted for more government control, leaving less control by individuals over their own lives.

2022 New Hampshire State Representative Candidate, Ken Sheffert

Here in NH, Democrats have a well documented history of repeatedly and consistently voting:

– Against parents’ control of their own children

– For policies that raise the cost of electricity and power in general

– For higher taxes

– For taxpayer funded abortions up to and even after birth

– Against the second amendment right to have firearms to defend one’s family

– Against low and middle-income families choosing the education option for their children

– Against protections to ensure only NH residents vote in NH
