Political Cowardice On The March

Just another day in the world of political cowardice and ambiguous statements and retreating in mass! According to our New Hampshire State Representative Natalie Wells of District 25 which includes the Town of Warner, the House voted in favor of allowing transgender surgeries to minors by a vote of 164 against 162. Incredible as it sounds, minors are not allowed to have tattoos and studio suntans but this is allowed? What is happening to our country and now the state is simply mindboggling and wades far out into the sea of depraved thinking which results in something as perverse as this bill being passed in the House! Both Natalie Wells and Clyde Carson represent Warner. Natalie voted a for prohibition whereas Clyde voted to allow the measure to pass. The voting as you can see went pretty much along party lines with a few defections from the Republican Party.

It needs to be seen which of our representatives voted in favor as to those who voted against, so here is the list.
