NEW HAMPSHIRE LEGISLATOR: WE NEED TO 'RESTRICT FREEDOMS' OF CONSERVATIVES

Posted by   + Show Post



 
 3 Jan 2013 

A New Hampshire legislator wants her constituents to know that she feels conservatives are the "single biggest threat" her state faces today, and she wants to use her powers to legislate to "pass measures that will restrict" the freedoms of  Granite State conservatives.

In a blog post made last month on the left-wing site Blue Hampshire, 3rd District State Representative Democrat Cynthia Chase advised her fellow legislators to use their positions to make New Hampshire less welcoming to any conservative or libertarian planning on moving to her state—not to mention those already in residence.

For those unaware, a conservative project of sorts has been underway in New Hampshire since 2001. The idea is that Americans of conservative ideals are to move to New Hampshire, gather in communities, run for office, and work to drive the state toward libertarianism and conservatism. It is called the "Free State Project" and adherents are called "Free Staters."

These Free Staters figure that the state’s motto, “Live Free or Die,” should really mean something and it is these citizens whose freedoms legislator Chase wants to oppress.

In her December 21 post, Chase wrote that, "Free Staters are the single biggest threat the state is facing today."

"In the opinion of this Democrat, Free Staters are the single biggest threat the state is facing today. There is, legally, nothing we can do to prevent them from moving here to take over the state, which is their openly stated goal. In this country you can move anywhere you choose and they have that same right. What we can do is to make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave. One way is to pass measures that will restrict the 'freedoms' that they think they will find here. Another is to shine the bright light of publicity on who they are and why they are coming."

Of course, it is one thing to be a proponent of laws that might have theunintended consequences of restricting others' freedoms. If one truly believes in such policies, well, they may be disastrously wrong, but at least they'd be honestly wrong. A fine point, to be sure.

But here we have a legislator that doesn't just want to pass laws that are tangentially restrictive. She wants to purposefully use her powers to write laws to target individuals with whom she disagrees, take away their freedoms and liberties, and all in the hopes that the citizens she is oppressing might move away from her state.

As New Hampshirite Steve MacDonald notes, "this sounds like tyranny."

Imagine if a legislator had written a blog post targeting the freedoms of gays, or women, or some other minority? One would think that the media would go wild with such a story. But here we have an elected official suggesting that government be used in the United States of America to eliminate freedoms for certain citizens in order to gain political control and the media is silent.

Sounds like tyranny, indeed.

 Her full statement Free Staters Unwelcome Here

In the opinion of this Democrat, Free Staters are the single biggest threat the state is facing today.  There is, legally, nothing we can do to prevent them from moving here to take over the state, which is their openly stated goal.  In this country you can move anywhere you choose and they have that same right.  What we can do is to make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave.  One way is to pass measures that will restrict the "freedoms" that they think they will find here.  Another is to shine the bright light of publicity on who they are and why they are coming.  They can not put their ideology into our statutes unless we elect them in great enough numbers to take over our General Court.  We have already seen them try during the last session of the General Court.  Our last election was a repudiation of their extremism.  

Here in Keene we had a couple show up on Central Square to take part in our weekly Saturday morning peace demonstration. In the course of the conversation they allowed that they were Free Staters considering moving to Keene. The folks on the Square told them in no uncertain terms not to do that because Free Staters are not welcome here.  Cheshire County is a welcoming community but not to those whose stated goal is to move in enough ideologues to steal our state, and our way of life.  

Ultimately the Free Staters want NH to be a platform state for them to export their views to the rest of the country.  Some of these folks dress up pretty well, but if you check their website you will find that they are really wolves in sheep's clothing.  The best strategy from my perspective is to keep shining a light on their views and activities and make it very plain that NH is not up for sale to any ideology.  To ignore these people and hope they go away is a recipe for disaster.

**********************

This is what the free staters purpose is:

Are you frustrated at the loss of freedom and responsibility in America, while the growth of government and taxes continues unabated? Do you want to live in strong communities where your rights are respected, and people exercise responsibility for themselves and in their dealings with each other?

If you answered "yes" to those questions, then the Free State Project has a solution for you.

What the Free State Project is... The Free State Project is an effort to recruit 20,000 liberty-loving people to move to New Hampshire. We are looking for neighborly, productive, tolerant folks from all walks of life, of all ages, creeds, and colors who agree to the political philosophy expressed in our Statement of Intent, that government exists at most to protect people's rights, and should neither provide for people nor punish them for activities that interfere with no one else.

When you sign our Statement of Intent, you signal your commitment to move to the chosen free state, New Hampshire, within five years of obtaining 19,999 other people who commit to move. The more signatures we get, the more secure people can be in their decision to move, because they know that many other people will also be moving— enough to make a real difference! You don't have to wait until we have 20,000 signatures to move, of course, but that option is there to let you be more secure in your decision.

What the Free State Project is not... We are not a political action organization. We are not tied to any political party or organization; we do not run candidates for election, we do not financially support or endorse candidates, and we do not oppose or endorse legislation. All these things will be done by local activist organizations with which many Free Staters are involved.

There's no better place for freedom-loving Americans than New Hampshire... In a vote that ended in September 2003, FSP participants chose New Hampshire because it has the lowest state and local tax burden in the continental U.S., the second-lowest level of dependence on federal spending in the U.S., a citizen legislature where state house representatives have not raised their $100 per year salary since 1889, the lowest crime levels in the U.S., a dynamic economy with plenty of jobs and investment, and a culture of individual responsibility indicated by, for example, an absence of seatbelt and helmet requirements for adults.

If you're interested... Please consider signing the Statement of Intent, participating in our message board, signing up for our monthly e-mail newsletter, visiting New Hampshire, or learning about a few of the hundreds of activists who have already Made the Move to NH.

Quoting SallyMJ:

So you are defending what she is doing and think is the right thing to do under our Constitution?

Come on - a group of conservatives where she so opposes their actions, that she wants to withhold their Constitutional rights. No other liberal, no other conservative has said anything remotely similar about the other side.

Quoting sweet-a-kins:

So again, they do not want to restrict conservatives

But a specific group


Quoting SallyMJ:

What? I don't see your point.

The Free Staters are mostly conservatives, with some libertarians. Should they have called the article "NEW HAMPSHIRE LEGISLATOR: WE NEED TO 'RESTRICT FREEDOMS' OF SOME CONSERVATIVES AND LIBERTARIANS WHO WANT TO MOVE TO THEIR STATE"?

That would be a REALLY long title.

The average person seeing the headline would not know what "Free Staters" are - which is why it is explained in the article.

I don't understand your statement. Could you please clarify? Thanks!

I dunno, I can't find anythng wrong with the Free-staters goals.

I might have a sugestion regarding the execution.

Couples should all get pregnant before arriving in NH, once in NH go ahead and have the little anchor baby, so that the baby is in a fact a NH citizen. Libs would never want to rip those innocent children away from their home just because their parents might not be perfect.

I personally have not heard other liberals say conservatives shouldn't live in certain places, and that they should have their Constitutional rights taken away. Have you?

Quoting Billiejeens:

Wow, ( i didn't mean personally, btw).

I could start naming the names in this very group, but they know who they are.

(do you have cable?)

Quoting SallyMJ:

I respectfully disagree - I don't know any liberals or Democrats who think even remotely similar to this nut.

Quoting Billiejeens:

Don't think so, she is your typical Liberal-Progressive-Democrat, just more vocal about her beliefs.

Couldn't agree more. I'm a liberal and find this woman to be off her rocker to say or do such things.

Quoting blues_pagan:

This woman is definitely misuing her power. She has taken it to the extreme. But at the same time I can understand residents standing up and wanting to voice their concerns since these "free staters" sound like they want to overrun people who already live there. It sounds like they want to overtake the state which, IMO, is wrong. 


People need to stop it with the them vs us mentality.  It is sickening and sad to think that we have these underhanded battles of sorts simply because people don't share the same views.

So true. Isn't this what the Dems are always accusing the conservatives of?  And on a side note, I didn't even know that was a woman until I read it in the article.  

Quoting jaysmommy04:

So she is feeling threatened, and she wants to bully those that she disagrees with... yes and she sounds like she is the perfect poster women for freedom and what this country is about.  Good to know thats the american way now.  Who ever we disagree with, and is an imminent threat to what we believe in, we should single them out and take away their freedom.  Score one for the dems

 Nice siggie, S. I didn't realize you were a fan of Krispy Kreme. :-)

I guess you didn't read the article. She's just another "tolerant" far-left winger who wants to silence dissenting voices. You may have to use those critical thinking skills and read between the lines, but it's there.

Quoting:

".... What we can do is to make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave. One way is to pass measures that will restrict the 'freedoms' that they think they will find here. Another is to shine the bright light of publicity on who they are and why they are coming."

 

Her own words might come back and bite her in her big ol' keister if she isn't careful. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.
