“The NHGOP really needs to rethink it’s relationship with conservatives.”

by Skip November 9, 2016

That was part of an email sent in to Grokster Steve and I.  It spurred the immediate question: Why should it? What’s its downside from a historical perspective? Conservatives reliably vote for the Republican Party in election after election. We hear the nice words that make us think “hey,  s/he’s with us!”.

One of the more frequent concerns I hear from conservatarian voters about Kelly Ayotte’s primary opponent Jim Rubens regards past remarks about global warming, energy, and the environment.

by Skip July 12, 2016

After all, that’s what high office NH GOPe-ers do – run away from any political mud that may be trying to outrun the Law of Gravity.  Jennifer Horn is infamous for doing so and throwing anyone under the bus needed in her attempts to remain spotless (all those IRS tax liens aside, et al).  So […]
