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!
The NORTHERN part of the state - that part north and west of Berlin, voted for both Bush and Benson. Is it the old union Democrats in Berlin and Gorham that outnumber the Republicans in the FAR Northern part of the state (the part closest to Canada for the geographically impaired) ??
NH Resident blames all of 100 Free Staters for why NH Republicans lost the governorship and for why NH has moved strongly into the Blue State camp. One hundred did all that in a state of over a million? What are you smoking?
Republicans are losing New Hampshire! The Free Staters may be the only organization that can save New Hampshire from becoming another Massachusetts. Again I say: the NH Republicans are losing New Hampshire to the Democrats.
NH Resident is looking for a scapegoat. One hundred Free Staters is a pretty weak excuse for the Republican failure. It looks like the FSP is the only hope to keep NH from voting for a Democrat President (and governor) next time, and the time after that, and the time after that!
You don't believe they can save New Hampshire from the Democrats? Then honest-to-liberty Republicans should move to New Hampshire to reinforce their beleaguered NH Republicans. This may be a job for the Republican Liberty Caucus. Step up to the plate! Put your feet where your mouth is! Bring your gold and guns! (Leave your moralistic theocrat ideas behind since we have enough trouble without that). Let's save this state!
You're missing the growing trees [of a new idea] for the forest [of politics as usual].
