NH Rebellion fights back against big money

To the editor:

Along with hundreds of other people who are concerned about the democratic foundations of our country, on July 5, I walked along New Hampshire’s seacoast in support of the NH Rebellion. This nonpartisan, nonprofit citizens’ movement is dedicated to halting the tsunami of money being spent by the billionaire class to influence our elected representatives and control the economic and political life of this nation for their benefit.

The goal of NH Rebellion is to make money in politics the central issue in the 2016 campaign by asking every candidate, “How are you going to end the system of corruption in DC?”

Over 95 percent of Americans (not Democrats, not Republicans, but Americans) think that money in politics is a problem, but don’t know what to do about it. Well, this is something we can do. And the idea can be extended to our statewide and local elections by asking those candidates, “What are you going to do to get money out of politics in New Hampshire?” And then hold them accountable for some kind of positive action.

Please go online (nhrebellion.org) to find out more about this organization and how you can help take our country back.
