Totalitarianism is alive in Concord- Here’s how we stop it

Just this week, the NH House has passed a massive list of onerous bills that are antithetical to liberty. From banning plastic bags and straws, to anti second amendment bills, one of which will require a 7-day waiting period upon purchasing a firearm, the Democrats have now begun heading into full totalitarian mode. We need …

Winning: You Helped Kill New Hampshire’s Wretched Unnecessary Pet-Czar Bill (HB688)

I think congratulations are in order. In February we reported on a bill to create what I called the Pet Czar. A law granting regulatory authority to an agency that would cost millions annually to boss pet owners and hobby breeders around. A gross act of overreach. An absurd abuse of power. A law that, “would create …

Age and Guile vs Youth and Inexperience**:
Trump vs Trudeau

While the young socialist, Trudeau, piles further impediments upon his countrymen as their reward for electing him, the wily Donald Trump steadily unravels red tape and shreds useless regulations. Trump and his cabinet know full well that red tape and government regulations are better kept few and simple, and have set about slashing their way …

So, who was it you voted for to get all these “Laws”?

That would be “Administrative Law” – laws created and legally enforced (sometimes as felonies) by unelected, unaccountable, and unassailable bureaucrats.  The Competitive Enterprise Institute has a report on how large of an impact this “extra-Constitutional” process of “legislating” has on the average American citizen who, if you haven’t been educated in government schools lately, our …

Senator Shaheen’s Selective Defense Of Small Business Owners

New Hampshire’s Congressional delegation is unified in its defense of the Granite State from efforts to make online purchases taxable. Their primary objection, and I’ll use Senator Shaheen as my whipping donkey for this, is the burden it puts on small business owners. As a former small business owner, I know that most small businesses …

Carol Shea-Porter: The Federal Governments Representative To New Hampshire CD- 1

I have long and often argued that Democrats, New Hampshire’s variety in particular, favor the top down model of governance.  The power and the resources (money) must descend from the point farthest from the person who is taxed for the privilege of being governed by progressives. A prime example or proof of this “theory” is …

Notable Quote – James Gwartney and Richard Stroup

Similarly, the record of government planning in the United States is fraught with internal inconsistencies. The federal government both subsidizes tobacco growers and propagandizes against smoking. It pays some farmers not to produce grain products and, at the same time, subsidizes others with irrigation projects so they can grow more of the very same grain …
