Notable Quote – Steve Mac Donald

by Skip March 27, 2014

On Obamacare’s illustrating of Democrat philosophy (emphasis mine): This isn’t even a law anymore.  It is lawless.  That state where there is no defining framework, no boundary, and most importantly no way for any person, business, municipality, or state to know if and to what extent it is operating in or outside the law. This […]

Notable Quote – Steve Mac Donald

by Skip March 12, 2014

…Neither you nor I, nor any small business owner, or interested local grass-roots group, will ever have the time or resources to risk tangling with complex “speech” laws, loaded with trip wires.  Speech becomes a luxury commodity protected for the wealthy and well-connected, at the exclusion of a majority of the populace. If and when […]

Ed Naile, the Chairman of CNHT, brings a new name to the non-resident voter fraud rogues gallery.  Alexandra Isabel Perez-Caballero from South Carolina claimed residency while here for just a few weeks before the 2012 election.  She voted absentee as a Democrat from the same Manchester address where Alana Biden stole your vote, then vanished […]

Notable Quote – Steve Mac Donald

by Skip January 14, 2014

Our society has flipped from a culture that defined government to a culture that responds to government.   This is not liberty.  It is not a constitutional republic.  It is a cultural despotism enforced by dependent-mobs of state-manufactured mercenaries. – Steve Mac Donald, editor / blogger at GraniteGrok (emphasis mine)

Could Two Simple Questions Put Us On A Path To A More Responsive And Responsible (Even More Affordable) Government?

by Steve MacDonald November 4, 2013

There are mobs of rank and file Democrats (moderates, independents, and so on) whose only grasp of what the TEA Party represents comes from the professional left and their media allies.   (Lucky for them the socialist progressives own the education and media industrial complex, with only a few exceptions, so their PR campaigns get […]

Notable Quote – Steve Mac Donald

by Skip November 1, 2013

On the nature of Democrat cum Socialists (empahsis mine): ..Governments are only formed to ensure mutual protection of persons and property or…to oppress people and abuse property for the benefit of a ruling class. Laura Pantelakos, the Modern Democrat Party, and the Obama Administration are all governing as the latter.  They are more interested in […]

Notable Quote – Democrats Are A Spending And A Revenue Problem

by Steve MacDonald February 15, 2013

“Ask a democrat and they will tell you “we have a revenue problem.”  But the only reason you could ever have a revenue problem is if you first have a spending problem.   But if you have elected Democrats, you will always have a spending problem.   And you will always have a spending problem because […]

by Skip January 6, 2013

“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 […]

Notable Quotes: On Current NH-GOP Leadership

by Steve MacDonald December 13, 2012

In my honest opinion the amalgam of  Establishment Republican Leadership in New Hampshire, which includes the shadow party “leadership” that makes the phone calls behind the scenes, decides whose turn it is, puts pressure on people to do their bidding or get out, and claims to control the money, are about as effective politically as […]

Wither Thee A Thermostat – One Example of How Government Can Ruin Your Life

by Steve MacDonald December 7, 2012
