One last day!! The NHRebellion walk to get the money out of politics is ending today, on the 5th anniversary of Citizens United. There will be a rally as the walks from Dixville Notch, Keene, Portsmouth and Nashua converge in Concord. There are indoor and outdoor activities planned - you can see the details at www.nhrebellion.org.
Do you recognize the man in the photo with me? That is Ben Cohen of Ben and Jerry's. He has been walking with us as his group (Stamp Stampede) is working to 'stamp' money out of politics.
The NHRebellion walk is primarily to build awareness, but we are also raising some funds to carry the effort through the 2016 Primary and Presidential elections. You can visit my fundraising page here. Basically, the NHR approach is to leverage our First in the Nation primary to ask of each candidate until we get an answer: What are YOU going to do to end the corruption of money in Washington? This is a non-partisan effort, with people on all sides involved. Two years ago it was the second most important issue identified by voters after jobs/economy - and yet, not one candidate talked about it. It is time for that to change!!
If you are driving near Concord today and you see the walkers, give them a toot with your horn.
