So When Will Democrats Start Calling Me A Free Stater?

All Democrats have narratives.  New Hampshire Democrats are no different.  The typical left wing narrative is designed to brain wash you by using the media to repeat the latest chest-beating tantrum, using sound bites, puff pieces, editorials, and press releases, to create a long term perception disguised as truth.  Did I mention that New Hampshire …

Does The GOP Want That New Direction Or Not

Should the New Hampshire Republican House Caucus have the opportunity to vote for their Majority leader? That’s majority leader not Speaker. Traditional wisdom says yes but today, rumor has it, that three of the four candidates for speaker are said to have voted no on the matter.
