Hey Chad, why did you leave? Come back.
I'm not opposed to these folks coming here, they'll fit in better than Mass folks who complain about Mass taxes and then say they want sidewalks and computers in every classroom and trash pick up paid for by the town.
Back in the 70s Nackey Loeb said newcomers should get an education about why taxes are lower here and how they can stay that way. I loved Nacky Loeb.

Well, I was born and raised there, grew up reading the Manchester Union Leader daily LOL, and then ran off to sea... ended up out here in the Soviet of Washington with a family, old in-laws to take care of etc...

I'd love to come back sometime...

I grew up with the Union Leader too, when I was little I thought William Loeb was the Governor because my Grandfather(he lived in Littleton) talked about him so much. But I lived just over the border in, brace yourself, Mass!
I've been to the other side so thats how I can love this state so much. Good of you to take care of the older folks, so hard too, my mom in law lives with us. I love having her around to pass on her wisdom to my kids. Yesterrday at the dump I nagged the guy who worked there
(for "community service detail") to help the older folks out with their trash without being asked. Is that what you mean about being outspoken? I'm just a bleeding heart conservative.

hopefully upper michigan - i'm not moving to new hampshire, but i will move to the UP

Too many trolls (living under da Bridge) in Michigan to make it feasible for the FSP... And, besides, we fought a WAR to get the UP! (Okay, it was only agaisnt Ohio, and there was only one casualty in a tavern brawl, but it was a WAR!)

Not only that, but she had a couple of rolls of quarters in the bottom of that purse she was swinging at you guys.

and it is the state RATS that are spouting the rhetoric you guys are?

Actually, they oppose the move, perhaps because they just want to score points against Benson, or perhaps because see Libertarian Party platforms as appealing to their own core RAT voters.

The Democrats are already in third place in terms of numbers of registered voters in the Granite State. If the porcupines register as Republicans and *Undeclared* voters, the Dems will go further down the hole. If the Porcupines build their own political arm and their numbers continue to increase at the rate they have over the previous 24 months [1000 members the first year; 4500 more the second for a total of more than 5500 now] for the 5-year period that it takes for them to complete the move after the next 15K are added [projected at 103 weeks; for a 7-year total period] the porcupines could outnumber the *undeclared*/independents by the 2008 election...and possibly, the Republicans, though that is not a planned goal of the project. But it could work out that way. And the Democrats could even lose their state funding as a *dominant* political party. No wonder they're in panic mode.

But for a start, we'll see what can be done with just 20,000 Porcupines. And, of course, a quarter-million NH *undeclared*:

NH State voter registration, September ’02 2001
[after list purge]

REPUBLICANS 245,791/ 37.3%
UNDECLARED 242,028/ 36.8%
DEMOCRATS 170,405/ 25.9%

Shouldn't the title read, "New Hampshire Loses the Free State Vote"?

Well, that would be the view of the Democratic party hacks who see their political futures withering on the vine. And many have never worked at any other trade. See the post above.

bump to the top... traveling to New Hampshire for a scouting trip before October is through!

I'll be bringing my father, I wonder how many spouses, sons, daughters, wives, husbands, etc will be coming along with FSP members?

["spouses, sons, daughters, wives, husbands"

Ministry of Redundancy Department of Repatition calling...]

Well, my kid is 19 and old enough to make up his own mind what he wants to do: work in NH, involve himself with the just-off-the-ground Western FSP, or stay where he is now.

I've got a near-fiancee lady friend with a preteen daughter who loves NH and is twisting my arm severely to head there NOW; my inclination is to visit a couple of times, get the Winter out of the way, and migrate at liesure...but probably before the 2004 election. And that also gives me time to try and convince my kid, or vice-versa.

I've got a couple of professional responsibilities to attend to first, and a pal in the hospital who's likely not going to see the political result of the FSP effort, but was gratified to hang around long enough to see the outcome of the state choice election. He's asked us to take his ashes along with us, but it's not quite reached that point yet.

Of course, there may be a couple of resettling porcupines taking their wives and kids, and someone else's spouses along for the ride. Maybe yoiur redundancy wasn't excessively repetitive after all.

Perhaps, but we in Michigan won. :-) Michigan got da UP, and Ohio got Toledo.
