"Max Abramson, Libertarian candidate for Governor of New Hampshire, talks about the drug war and why your vote for a 3rd party candidate is important."
If the mainstream media continues to ignore our campaign for "smaller government, local control," there are independent media outlets willing to give us a mention. Thanks to Ellen Kolb for giving me a mention.
"The ads on television and online might leave you thinking there are only two people running for New Hampshire Governor: Democrat Colin Van Ostern and Republican Chris Sununu.
"There is a third candidate on the ballot: Rep. Max Abramson of Seabrook, running as a Libertarian. The Big Two aren’t worried about him. Still, there he is. I have not interviewed him. He has a voting record from his term as state rep, though. Rep. Abramson."
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."
