WELCOME TO THE REPUBLICAN LIBERTY CAUCUS
OF
NEW HAMPSHIRE

Would You Vote to Reelect This Republican?

Would you vote to reelect this Republican?

He has the second worst HRA (House Republican Alliance) score of all Republicans. His attendance record is fourth worst. His NHLA (New Hampshire Liberty Alliance) score would be in the bottom 10% but he was given an “Incomplete” due to his bad attendance. His AFP (Americans for Prosperity) score was a “D”.

Or how about this Republican? She has the worst HRA score of all Republicans and the worst NHLA score. She earned an “F” from AFP. Her attendance is in the bottom 20% of all legislators.

The good news is that you won’t have to.

Those two Reps decided not to run again. The bad news is that there are many other Republicans with terrible voting records who are running again.

Without your help these candidates probably will be reelected despite their terrible records. They have good name recognition and are well liked in their communities. Most voters have no information about their Reps’ voting records.

But isn’t voting the number one job of a State Rep?

Shouldn’t they be judged on the basis of how well they do their job? If your neighbors knew about their Reps’ bad voting records, wouldn’t they vote for someone who would vote better?

That’s where you come in.

Our best and perhaps only chance to defeat these entrenched candidates and replace them with people who will vote better (and wouldn’t almost anyone vote better?) is to get information to voters. And the best and often only way to reach voters is by word of mouth. If you contact friends and neighbors and tell them about their Reps’ terrible voting records, and if they do the same, then we can elect much better Republicans.

Please help us spread the word about these 16 candidates’ terrible voting records.

Chairman, RLCNH

P.S. We can’t beat someone with no one. Please help us find opponents for these terrible candidates or please consider running yourself.

Elections 2018

Election season for 2018 will soon be upon us. Filing period starts on June 5, 2018.

The filing period for State Reps is just over a month away, and we have more than 100 slots to fill. We ask for your help to fill those slots with good guys.

Listed below are towns where we really need some good candidates. If you live in one of these towns, please consider running for State Rep. If you know someone who would be a good vote, then please ask him or her to run.

If you worry that you don’t know anything about politics – good. We need more Reps who know the real world better than they know the political world.

If you think that you don’t know how to campaign, we can train you. It really is not that hard.

If you think that you need to raise lots of money – not true. A few hundred or a few thousand is all it takes, depending on where you live. We can help you raise that money.

If you think you don’t have time to be a Rep – it doesn’t have to take much time. It is a 6-month job each year, about one day a week.

Even if you never show up, you may vote better than the person you replace.

Please help make the New Hampshire House a more liberty-minded body.

Help Stop the Huge NH Budget

The New Hampshire House will soon vote on the state budget. As it currently stands, the budget will exceed $12 billion for the first time ever.

The cost of running state government will be about $9,000 for every man, woman, and child in NH. Is your family getting its money’s worth? Can you afford to pay your share?

Here are the numbers from the last budget and the proposed budget: [click for larger view]

budget_2017

Those numbers are millions of dollars. You are looking at increases of hundreds of millions of dollars – in total an increase of more than $800 million. The increase in this one budget is very nearly as much as the increase in BOTH of Maggie Hassan’s budgets combined.

We cannot let government grow at this rate. It’s bad for our economy for government to grow faster than the private sector; high spending leads to high taxes; larger government means less liberty.

“Low taxes are the result of low spending.” — Gov. Meldrim Thompson
“As government expands, liberty contracts.” — Ronald Reagan

We CAN stop this – we can reduce these increases. Not as much as many of us would like, but we can defeat this huge budget and get it replaced with a less huge budget.

Please phone your State Reps and tell them to vote down this budget and vote for smaller increases. You can find your Reps at http://gencourt.state.nh.us/house/members/wml.aspx

TAKE ACTION to oppose the House Budget

Send a message to all House representatives telling them to SAY NO to the budget. To make the message more effective, please add your name and town.

Take Action to Protect Your Rights

The forces of statism never rest, especially when it comes to the thought-control that is “political correctness.” The forces of political correctness never stop trying to enforce their agenda by using the force of law, and now they’re pressing their coercive agenda in New Hampshire.

Supporters of the radical politically correct agenda in the state legislature are working furiously to pass HB 478, the bill that will result in a change in law that will empower the government to use the force of law to silence or punish citizens who disagree with the popular politically correct ideology of the day. This further concentration of government power is not only unnecessary because the New Hampshire constitution is clear that all citizens are to be treated equally, but it also undermines many of our most fundamental and cherished rights. Just a few of these rights compromised include:

– Right to Privacy: Spaces that are sex segregated to provide privacy will be forced open to any individual who claims to be another gender – even though there may be no way to verify that what they claim is the truth.

– Freedom of Speech: Churches in other states like Texas and Iowa have been censored, with the state using policies like the proposed HB 478 as a weapon of state control.

– Religious Freedom: Churches, ministries, religious entities, and individual religious citizens will be forced to ignore their faith and comply or be hit with punitive fines and legal fees.

– Private Property Rights: Business owners will have no control over the policies in their own establishments, despite any concerns they may have for their customers or employees.

– Free Markets and Free Contracts: Interferes with the ability of citizens to freely contract with others for the purposes of employment, and may even be a further harm to transgendered individuals – it is often easier and less costly for business owners to deny employment to individuals of a protected class than legally defend a legitimate termination of employment.

What’s more, this change may undermine the safety of our wives and daughters. No longer would women and girls enjoy the cultural protection of keeping male potential predators out of bathrooms, locker rooms, and other places of privacy and safety. This bill would give voyeurs, sexual predators, and pedophiles unrestricted (and unquestioned) access to potential victims, all of whom will be ignored and silenced when their concerns are voiced.

Those on the political Left use misguided compassion for their justification, claiming that the effect of this bill is to “merely add gender identity” as a “protection against discrimination.”

Unfortunately, this is far from the truth. While the actual number of words to be added to NH law is small, and the change seems insignificant, this “small” change has a huge impact. It radically transforms the law and its reach, handing the government even more power. It prioritizes subjective (unverifiable) feelings over biological (verifiable) truth. It moves government from the realm of governing embodied persons to making claim over a mental state that rejects embodiment. In short, it expands the coercive power and reach of the government even further into the lives of New Hampshire citizens.

HB 478 will come to the full House for a vote as early as March 8. I urge you to join us in loudly denouncing this public policy that will serve to grow government and reduce the rights and freedoms of New Hampshire citizens. This leftist, politically correct, coercive bill must be stopped. We have already seen Republicans in committee join with the unanimous Democrat block to recommend that this bill pass – tell them to reverse course.

We will not stand for our freedoms being stripped, and the next election is less than two short years away. The RLCNH, for one, will be watching.
