I’m Max Abramson, Libertarian candidate for governor. As a state representative, I’ve worked hard to get money, power, and decision making back down to the local level and back to the people. Yet as legislators, we’ve received countless contacts from constituents who are being pushed around by state agencies, the Attorney General’s Office, or even the family courts.
Worse, the two executive councilors I’m running against have already benefited from over $6.5 million in out of state campaign contributions from powerful special interest groups.
Both have been confirming all of the governor’s pro-Common Core appointees and to give $424 million of your tax money to the hospital lobby that finances their campaigns. Neither has done anything to investigate wrongful convictions or abuse by state agencies. Both are in the back pockets of the prison industry, trial lawyers, union officials, and out of state casinos that bankroll their campaigns.
The problem with our state government is the corruption. I don’t work for powerful special interest groups. I just listen to both sides and do what I think is the right thing to do. As governor, I’ll fire all of Hassan’s taxpayer funded lobbyists, clean up the Attorney General’s Office, investigate voter fraud, and get government off your back.
Remarkably, both of the two executive councilors running for governor oppose the creation of an outside Inspector General! Corruption in state and local politics has become a major crisis in New Hampshire, and yet the corrupt Attorney General's Office has done everything it can to cover up widespread voter fraud, police misconduct, wrongful convictions, and abuse by state agencies.
I was interviewed recently by WMWV 104.5fm, also broadcasting at 93.5fm, covering the North Country. Thousands of listeners will get to hear about alternatives to big government meddling and the need for Jessie's Law.

New Gov Will Nominate 3 for Supreme Court
Candidates Surveyed on Justice Issue
New Hampshire’s next governor will likely have the opportunity to nominate three justices to the NH Supreme Court, as three of the five current justices will reach the mandatory retirement age of 70 within the next three years.
Abramson: "The state needs to prosecute far fewer cases, and, in particular, victimless crimes. Estimates of one-third to three-quarters of cases pursued are now victimless. Until the late 1970s, New Hampshire had fewer than 200 people incarcerated. That number has grown to 3,800. For those with mental health issues, addiction, or other problems that can be solved without prison, I would promote outpatient treatment, recovery support, job training, employment support, and other alternative forms of rehabilitation."

Common Core has become the latest in a series of educational experiments pushed down on our kids by the State, teachers union officials, and entrenched political lobby. The problem is not confined to one party. Both Democrats and RINO's have voted to give the state Board of Education more power over our schools and to push Common Core, high stakes testing, outcome based education, and Smarter Balanced Assessment.
Worse, many of these tests, standards, and educational experiments have been developed in secret without parental input, and ask intimate, personal questions of school children who do not realize that this information is being bundled and sold to corporations.
Both executive councilors running for governor have been voting to confirm Hassan's pro-Common Core activists to the state Board of Education. We need someone in the corner office who will fight to return local and parental control over education.
With five hectic weeks left to go in the governor's race, recent polling conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, my campaign has startled some pundits by showing a fast pace toward double digits. While the campaign originally set a modest goal of 4% needed to achieve ballot access and greater media attention for Harm Reduction and reducing property taxes, public support has shown a marked increase.
Millions of Americans are now waking up to the fact that the two party system and their primary processes are rigged. The echo chamber that many of these insiders live in does not allow them to concern themselves with the real problems that plague the "two" parties, especially the fact that their actions are now dominated by powerful monied interest groups that finance their campaigns.
