If you are NOT a republican or democrat, or you have ideas outside of the mainstream, the State of New Hampshire wants to let you know you can go fuck yourself. Since the New Hampshire primaries are crucial to the overall presidential election, Bill Gardner, (the Secretary of State of New Hampshire) wants to let you know that the country can go fuck itself. No democracy for you. Do as Bill tells you– though all he will tell you is go fuck yourself.
The quick version of events:
Since 2015, I’ve been trying to get on the ballot for the presidential primary. Every time I make an attempt, Bill Gardner tells me to go fuck myself. The first time, he said I couldn’t use the name, “Flowerman.” That’s how I was known in the press, and to the public. New Hampshire state law allows nicknames on the ballot. Bill didn’t care.
Last Friday, (Nov 8), I tried to get on the ballot using my nickname EPSTEINDIDNTKILLHIMSELF WEBBER. Bill offered no reason why this was unsatisfactory. He use the threat of force to remove me. On Wednesday, (Nov 13), he wouldn’t even let me into the office, and again, used the threat of force.
This Friday, (Nov 15), I came offering options of nicknames the Bill might be okay with; RIGGED ELECTION WEBBER, and FLINTSTILLDOESNTHAVECLEANWATER WEBBER. Bill still gave no reason as to why he wouldn’t allow me on the ballot.
There’s a couple livestreams for full context– but in the quick edited video, (to get to the point), I show a clip of me bringing the $1000 to get on the presidential ballot. Then, NH Secretary of State Bill Gardner refuses to take my money for the third time in a week. He also refused to grant a reason to not include me, even after I read the law to him out loud.
Mr. Gardner is a little more talkative with Vermin Supreme, giving us the opportunity to see Gardner’s true ignorance— of course, with the help of Richard Manzo who holds his feet to the fire, regarding the Libertarian primary being held as a result of the State’s lopsided position to not include smaller parties such as the Greens or Libertarians.
These videos are but a few of many videos we’ve made this year and during the 2016 season illustrating how ignorant, (or indifferent), many public officials are of their own procedures, policies and laws. (I’d post links to others, but my YouTube channel has been deleted.)
Regardless of what party one identifies with, any NH resident should be outraged that their tax dollars go toward an undemocratic primary which shows favoritism toward certain parties over others. It’s not democracy. It’s the illusion of democracy— and the media should be ashamed of themselves for perpetuating it.
