Thumbnail image for NH Towns Need To Revolt Against Maggie Hassan’s Executive Overreach

How do the towns feel about the AG of the state of New Hampshire telling them that anybody who shows up at their polling place can vote for their candidates, or their ballot measures, even their budgets? Anybody? Your taxes, your teachers, your public safety, your town selectman and counselors, the representatives you send to […]

Democrat Terie Norelli Brings Civility To the New Hampshire House?

by Steve MacDonald January 2, 2013

Get a load of this.  It is part of a quote from an elected member of the New Hampshire House. “What we can do is make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave.  One way is to pass measures that will restrict freedoms that they […]

Trust and Safety in New Hampshire

by Steve MacDonald December 26, 2012

Here are two pull quotes from the New Hampshire Union Leader that I wanted to share.  One is about trust, the other about safety.  I think you’ll find them…interesting. In an article on 2013 LSR H-0451 regarding a proposed change to the right to know law, New Hampshire House Democrat Majority Leader Steve Shurtleff, D-Penacook, […]

Remembering Democrat Rule – No Taxes Means More Taxes

by Steve MacDonald September 15, 2012

In 2007 New Hampshire Democrats assumed complete control of state government.  And much like the Democrat rhetoric in the current 2012 campaign, back in 2007,  their first budget,  New Hampshire’s first budget over 10 billion dollars, was billed by the Democrats as a budget that “addresses our state’s priorities without new taxes.” Addresses our ‘State’s’ […]

Ask New Hampshire Democrats…Will You Let Obama Seize our Guns? (Fixed Link)

by Steve MacDonald September 14, 2012

President Obama, who promised to pursue gun control under the radar, has fulfilled that promise. Obama has expanded civil-forfeiture rules making it permissible for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) to seize weapons from citizens without the hassle of due process. This effectively gives Attorney General Eric Holder, of Fast and Furious fame, extended […]

Your Vote Is Worth Millions- Maybe You’d Like To Protect it?

by Steve MacDonald September 1, 2011

SB 129 is coming up for a veto override vote in the New Hampshire Senate in the next week or so. (The Union leader referred to it as SB 189, this morning, which is incorrect.) SB 129 would require ID to vote in New Hampshire. It would afford the same protection to your vote as it does to dozens of other things you need an ID for.

Jay Severin Returns to Boston Radio

by Steve MacDonald August 16, 2011

People familiar with Severin will know he sells himself as a libertarian leaning right winger, which is in itself suspect if you spend any time listening, but his style and manner have a history of building a broad range of listeners.

Revoke Non-Profit Status?

GSFTC Member Organization Spotlight -NH Citizens Alliance

by Steve MacDonald July 23, 2011

A Non-partisan organization devoted to social, economic, and political justice? Too bad that’s just not possible. There are no right wing groups seeking these ethereal ends. These are buzz-words, Orwellian constructs, created by statist agenda-driven socialists to mislead people. So the NHCA couldn’t be “non-partisan” if they tried. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Just look at who they associate with and what they support.

The Sweet Stench Of Left Wing Hypocrisy

by Steve MacDonald May 26, 2011

The Union Leader wastes no time, exposing Hawkins connection to money she received May 11th from America Votes (out of state left wing donation), which Granite State Progress then used to support the Democrat in the special election she is squawking about, specifically to elect that democrat, in that election.

Is John Lynch In Trouble With Democrats?

by Steve MacDonald May 22, 2011

The progressive socialists who pull the big red levers at party headquarters invest a good deal of political capitol on bashing big business and the men and women who run them so how do they reconcile their figurehead democrat pimping the potential for 1500 new manufacturing jobs in the state, created by some evil, free market, fortune 100 company?

Right To Work Override

by Steve MacDonald May 20, 2011

If Exxon Mobile demanded $50.00 per month from all its employees, every month, to pay for benefits and it’s political action agenda, the left would shit kittens, protest, and then engage in well funded, partisan series of lawsuits until the company was forbidden from using that money for political activity.

Stephen Colbert’s Campaign Finance Lesson

by Steve MacDonald May 20, 2011

“Why does it get so complicated to do this? I mean, this is page after page of legalese,” Mr. Colbert lamented. “All I’m trying to do is affect the 2012 election. It’s not like I’m trying to install iTunes.”

New Hampshire Got Jobs!?

by Steve MacDonald May 19, 2011

How about some jobs? New Hampshire is reporting an April unemployment rate of 4.9%. … This is unlike last year when the initial “improvement” we saw was actually the result of workforce decline–people had stopped looking or receiving benefits and dropped out of the equation.

The Missiles of Venezuela

by Steve MacDonald May 17, 2011

Can the guy who accepts books from the same dictator who is prepared to represent a significant risk to American interests in the hemisphere–including interests in America, step up and take them out before they are operational? Or does the major troublemaker and regional king maker in Venezuela have a right to intermediate range weapons capable of carrying nuclear warheads, and the ongoing training and assistance of Iran’s Qods force?

NH Senate Should BEG Our forgiveness on RGGI

by Steve MacDonald May 16, 2011

I just hope none of these Republican State senators took a pledge against broad based taxes, because they just voted to keep the tax on everything. You can’t get much broader than that.

Is The Teenage Mother’s Life Really at Risk?

by Steve MacDonald May 13, 2011

In the 20th century, deaths from complications of pregnancy have dropped from 850 per 100,000 pregnancies in 1900 all the way down to 7.5. That’s quite impressive. What has to annoy liberals is that most of that improvement occurred by 1982 and without unlimited access to “life saving abortions,” and without the state or federal pro-abortion democrats hindering parental consent before they were performed on minors.

A Funding “Solution” For Democrats Concerned about Budget Cuts

by Steve MacDonald May 13, 2011

Remember all that stuff we didn’t have to have in the New Hampshire budget before 2006 when the democrats started piling it up into what has become our Billion dollar budget deficit? I don’t either. I’m not even sure what they spent it on which is why I am convinced I can do without it. All this caterwauling is clearly just cover for keeping the bloated bureaucracy alive so they can milk it for union campaign contributions.

Which Is Worse Or Is It Both?

by Steve MacDonald May 11, 2011

It should come as no surprise to anyone that a guy (Mr. Obama) who sat in a church for years and years and insists he didn’t hear anything that he didn’t (presumably) want to hear, would be any different towards the American people?
