The signs for Dick Bowker, running for state representative from Nashua, say "less government, less spending." But look more closely at his campaign materials and you discover that's a lie. By his own statement, he will work to impose the "E-Verify" system on all New Hampshire workers, requiring us to be cleared through a federal database before we are permitted to work for a living. As discussed by the Cato Institute, E-Verify can and does prevent American citizens from exercising one of their most basic rights -- the right to earn one's living. If there is a glitch and you're reported as "non-confirmed" by Social Security and Homeland Security, then you have to go through a bureaucratic ordeal before you are allowed to work anywhere. Errors are in fact throwing people out of their jobs.
Bowker's Orwellian proposal would fall most heavily on small businesses, which would proportionately bear a greater load of paperwork.
"Less government"? Bowker is just throwing those words at us because he thinks they'll help him be elected. What he wants is the opposite.
