OUR State Project: What is it about “Free” that has Zandra Rice-Hawkins and Cynthia Chase’s panties in a bunch?

by Skip May 25, 2014

Adding a bit more from Steve’s post on the hysterical OUR State Project Progressives that believe that people who seemingly just want to be left alone by Government are THE existential threat to NH!  Remember, this from people who are out of staters themselves and depend on outside money to attack these people who just want […]

by Skip February 8, 2014

As always, Steve beat me to the posting (er, it takes a while to get the videos into the right shape for editing and then posting).  Also nice to report that with figuring out how to work with the UStream files (created during our livestreaming of our events), we’ll be posting the video of the […]

AFP/NH Grand Opening Videos – Micro Interview with Free State Project President Carla Gericke

by Skip January 23, 2014

Last of the micro-interviews was a surprise – I had wandered around to find Mark Warden and found him talking to a few people that I had never seen before – but they certainly knew each other.  Of COURSE – FSPers from the Free State Project.  No, it is NOT as the NH Dems claim, […]

Back in May of this year the People’s Republic of Keene, the city of Keene New Hampshire, filed a lawsuit against six members of Free Keene for “taunting and intimidating” parking enforcement officers.

Hell is still selling ice cubes – and I agree with Occupy NH on this

by Skip August 22, 2013

It has been a while since I’ve written about Occupy NH.  Certainly we agreed upon one thing – that the combination  & collusion of Big Government with Big Business resulting in Crony Capitalism at best, and Fascism at worst.  Where we parted ways was on how to ameliorate the situation; they wanted even BIGGER Government […]

by Skip August 11, 2013

Update and bumped:  9:53pm and a loyal reader emailed to let me know that, indeed, WMUR rewrote their post: Savyon was known to the local community through his political activity. He unsuccessfully ran three times for state representative as a Republican, including a special-election loss in Feb. 2012. He was also active in Libertarian activities […]

The Free State Project in New Hampshire: Eager beavers fight it out with eager socialists…

by Tim Condon May 26, 2013

State Rep. Cynthia Chase made herself famous not that long ago when she wrote “In the opinion of this Democrat, Free Staters are the single biggest threat” to achieving socialism in New Hampshire. Well…she didn’t actually say “achieving socialism.” I just added that to make her thought process clearer (after all, she’s a recent import […]

Robin Hoods vs. Parking Enforcement Officers!

by Tim Condon May 23, 2013

Robin Hoods win. Heh: The Free State Project’s “Keeniacs” are at it again. It seems that a bunch of libertarians down in Keene have become modern-day Robin Hoods. They roam Keene searching for cars where parking meters are about to expire…and then pop in some more coins. Great fun! (And, not incidentally, less money for […]

“With resistance like that” in Grafton….

by Tim Condon April 16, 2013

I blogged about the latest brouhaha (and threatened lawsuit) in the Free Town of Grafton yesterday; the fight was caused by hubris and abuse of local power in my small hometown. So in the last 24 hours people have been asking me “Why are they acting like that?” I told ‘em to re-read the posting. […]

Condon goes on a rant against a Regressive….

by Tim Condon March 25, 2013

I just had an exchange with a so-called “progressive” today who wrote some nasty things in a blog about me and the Free State Project. I responded to the regressive (the true nature of “progressives”), and…I admit it…I went on a rant. Felt good. Here’s what the regressive said; and then what I said in response:

Calvin Coolidge Comes to Grafton, Part I

by Tim Condon March 17, 2013

Calvin Coolidge, President from 1923 through 1928, was a famous skinflint from Vermont. He didn’t believe in today’s political-class sport of incessant taxing and spending to win elections (Grokster Steve MacDonald has recently highlighted this excellent president HERE). Coolidge was so adept at refusing the pigs at the political trough in his time that he insisted […]

An Open Letter to Foster’s Daily Democrat (Updated and Bumped)

[Update: I was just informed that the day after this post originally went up Foster's Daily Democrat decided to publish Dan Davis' letter.   We take no credit.  I'm sure it was just waiting in the slush pile for a space to open up and the timing is coincidental.  We do appreciate Foster's making room on their pages for […]

A message for all Anti-Freestater bigots…

by Tim Condon March 10, 2013

As we know, Rep. Cynthia Chase and others are known to periodically vent their spleens and their bigotry by raising awful alarms (!) about “the invasion of the Freestaters!” This supposedly monolithic anarchist horde is going to sweep through the state and end government as we know it (!). Well, three strikes and those idiots […]

Oh no! State Rep. Cynthia Chase…AGAIN?

by Tim Condon March 10, 2013

Cynthia Chase, an immigrant from Rhode Island, recently made headlines when she urged Democrats to pass laws restricting the freedoms of NH state citizens…to discourage Free State Project participants from wanting to move to the Live Free or Die state (I kid you not). That was odd, and it made national news…but even odder is this […]

Silver Circle, the Movie

by Tim Condon March 5, 2013

I believe the very first showing of this extraordinary movie was in the Live Free or Die state of New Hampshire. The people who worked on creating it have attended the Free State Project’s Porcupine Freedom Festival every year. Great artists. Even greater political truth-tellers. Hercules movie star and LA truth-teller Kevin Sorbo has worked […]

“Free Staters told to set clock for 2015″

by Tim Condon February 24, 2013

There’s a fascinating story in today’s Union Leader about the Liberty Forum just put on by the Free State Project in Nashua this weekend. It seems that the current President of the Free State Project, Carla Gierke, fully expects that New Hampshire will be welcoming 20,000 liberty activists by 2018 at the latest. (Come and join […]

The magnificent small-government activists of Grafton, New Hampshire

A message for Democrat NH State Rep Cynthia Chase from the Free State Project

Representative Chase? A message from the Free Staters of NH from the 2nd Amendment Rally – to paraphrase Sally Fields “We really like you, we really do!”.  Note to Cynthia – if you REALLY thought that your outburst was going to chase them off, well, they have a sign for you: Heh!

“As New Hampshirite Steve MacDonald notes, “this sounds like tyranny.” Given that Rush Limbaugh brought up NH Democrat House Rep Cynthia Chase’s name (AND STEVE MAC DONALDS!!) this past Friday, it was expected that the local NH media would be FORCED to also give a few column inches as well.  And DiStaso of the UL […]
