Dreaming the Impossible Dream- “Ideological Purity” in Politics

The concept of “ideological purity” simply means staying 100% true to your ideals and values when you vote. In choosing a candidate for whom to vote for any office or position, isn’t it reasonable to expect that the candidate, if elected, will proceed to deliver votes on critical issues that match the candidate’s campaign rhetoric, …

RINOs: The Dilution & Breakdown of the Republican Brand in NH

Dilution is the action of making something weaker in force, content, or value. Have you watched a brand you love just mean less and less? The brand might have gone in a direction you just couldn’t follow, or the quality of their product just kept slipping until their reputation was gone. You are not alone. …

Free Speech - speech suppression

Delivered Every Day Thanks to “Free Speech,” (While it Lasts)

Granitegrok was accused, earlier today, of being (for the sake of brevity) Republican Party bitches. Anyone who has spent any amount of time here, even just this past legisaltive session, will know how absurd the notion. We waged major offensives against several efforts led by Republicans that advanced, in our opinion, Democrat priorities. Marcy’s Law. Authorizing tax …

The sad story of the same suspect Republicans endorsing Democrats – what will the Party do?

Once again, like with almost any election in NH, the same names, the same sorry passel of Progressive Republicans (yes, there are Progressives that call themselves Republicans.  HOW they can do that intellectually as Progressivism is antithetical to the beliefs stated in the NH GOP Platform), the same RINOs, the same folks that couldn’t recognize …

“I get we like to fight for what’s right, but I wish it were channeled against our common foe”

The NHGOP recently held scheduled an event at a venue owned by a notorious Democrat donor. Skip took them to the woodshed. They didn’t care for that. In one email exchange he forwarded to me from someone who sounds like they are inside the State Republican Party (or carry their water) we got this response. I …

Seven New Hampshire House Republicans Try To Silence Political Speech They Don’t Like

American’s for Prosperity in New Hampshire has been doing some issues advocacy. Alerting the residents of seven House Districts held by sitting (r)epublicans that their elected officials opposed Right to Work. The seven “Republican” House Reps are mad at AFP for daring to let voters, who might not otherwise notice, know how they voted. So …

New Hampshire Is No Social Experiment – Thank You

I know politicians often feel they must balance principals against results. Once elected (once) conservative candidates become more practical. They surrender the issues they ran for office on to the ability to get “things done” or to “save what they have won.” I the this entirely. It is a basic human instinct – except for liberals. …

Kasich Konservatism

After the last debate is has become as clear as ever that John Kasich is simply an ass, as in, a Donkey, in elephant clothing; a costume in which NH Senator Kelly Ayotte has found increasing comfort. The Grokster discuss Kasich, Ayotte, Guinta, and other unprincipled invertebrate Republicans forced on us or who sounded good …

Enabling for me but not for thee!

Senator Stiles says about SB 11 (scheduled for a vote today in the House): “Instead of drafting legislation for one/two particular towns I made it ENABLING legislation for any community that saw a need. NO mandate to do anything”.  House and Senate Dems, Progressives and RINOs dig it. Senator Bradley said in SB 102 In “…cities, …
