I think the key is concentrated political activism. These 350 Free Staters aren't exactly a voting bloc, but they can effect change by being politically active (running for office, organizing, donating money).
Weelll.....let's see - since the Free Staters have moved to New Hampshire - the state dumped a Republican for a leftist Democrat as Governor, moved strongly into the Blue State camp (because of the votes in the NORTHERN part of the state - the part closest to Canada for the geographically impaired), introduced more statewide taxes and revenue transfers 'for the children', and seen a dramatic increase in the number of state officials running with dual party affiliation (e.g. RINOs running as Democrat/Republicans). Of course, it isn't the fault of the Free Staters but as a new comer the guy quoted in this story is missing the forest for the trees. His first clue should have been even remotely sympathetic treatment from the left-wing Concord Monitor!
I agree. I [too] think the key is concentrated political activism. That's the whole idea behind concentrating in New Hampshire. They want to save or salvage at least one state in the Northeast. Given what is happening to NH because of creep from Massachusetts, Republicans should realize they need some reinforcements and thousands of Free Staters would be a great start. Look, the Free Staters were backing Benson but were outnumbered by the new and old Democrats. Meanwhile, what were FReepers and Republicans doing to keep NH from going Blue?
The Republican Liberty Caucus should help their own cause by recruiting RLC members to move to New Hampshire too. Instead of whining about it or knocking down those who are compatriots, get together to keep New Hampshire from slipping to the dark side.
