…and the NH GOP chair leaps at the opportunity to smear her further. Said Jennifer Horn, as quoted in the Union Leader, “The New Hampshire Republican State Committee made it very clear that Representative Tremblay was unfit for public office and not welcome in our party. We are glad to see her go.” Well I’m not, and in my opinion there are members of the New Hampshire State Republican Committee who aren’t fit to kiss the feet of Rep. Tremblay Why? Because Tremblay was a reliable fighter in the state house for lower taxes, smaller government, and less regulation. So she said a couple of dumb things. So what? Democrats with their statist outlook say dumb things every single day of the week. Would the Republican leadership rather see the always-destructive Democrats hold the damned seat? As we see, there are plenty of bad Republicans—even at the top—but there are no good Democrats. So you GOP backstabbers who publicly rejoice over Rep. Tremblay’s resignation…you’ve shown your stupidity. You need to resign too.
I’ve been political my entire life, starting out with Barry Goldwater and The Conscience of a Conservative in the1960’s. In 1967 I enlisted in the U.S. Marines for four years, spending nearly two of them in South Vietnam. In 1972 I was a Florida presidential elector for Prof. John Hospers, the first Presidential candidate of the national Libertarian Party which was founded that same year. During the late 1970’s and into the 1980’s I was a contributing editor and monthly columnist for Reason magazine, and I’ve authored numerous articles in the print and online media about various subjects relating to individual rights and personal freedom. Today I’m a lawyer by profession; I divide my time between New Hampshire and Florida all year long, spending much of my time practicing law in Florida. As an early supporter and past member of the board of directors of the Free State Project, I was drawn to the Live Free or Die state of New Hampshire in late 2003 when it was chosen by a vote of the first 5,000 FSP participants. In 2004 I founded the Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire, and continue today to work within the state political system to advance the traditional NH values of frugal small government, low taxes, small business, free enterprise, and self-responsibility. To all, I say “Come and see what we are building in the beautiful, healthy, livable Free State of New Hampshire!”
