Whoever took the signs denied my right to free speech. You know, the one guaranteed to me by the First Amendment to the Constitution. What am I saying, you don't really know what that is do you?
Political signs are political speech, the exact same speech guaranteed in the First Amendment of the Constitution, the supreme law of the land. Yard signs might be stupid, but freedom of speech is not, and you would think that everyone could agree on that.
Illegally removing my sign is not a form of protesting the message. It's denying my right to speak. The only acceptable response to a sign you don’t like is putting up your own somewhere. That is what candidates do.
What you did was attack our democracy. I am fairly certain that the perpetrators are those that claim to be the " defenders of the constitution" but in reality are just some very angry, depressing people who can never find an upside to anything and believe that everything is just one conspiracy after another.
No matter. The signs will be back.
It's not rocket science to figure out who could be behind this as well as the candidate they support.
Reminder: What you did was illegal:
" In addition to the available criminal penalties for violating RSA chapter 664, the Legislature has established a civil penalty of up to $1,000 per violation for "removing, defacing, or destroying political advertising on private property." RSA 664:21, VI (a)-(b). "
