RLCNH Announces RINO of the Day

Based on their voting records, the RLCNH grades every Republican State Rep on two factors:

– How often do they vote with Democrats instead of with the majority of Republicans?
– How often do they vote with the Constitutions and platform?

The typical Republican State Rep votes 9% of the time with Democrats. He or she votes 89% with the Constitutions and platform. (By contrast, the typical Democrat votes just 5% with Republicans.)

Good Reps cast good votes because they follow Republican principles of limited government, individual liberty, and free markets. The bad Reps … well, not so much.

There are some “Republicans” who vote 20, 30, even 50% of the time with Democrats and against the majority of Republicans. Some vote just 60, 50, or as little as 40% with the Constitutions and platform.

Those Reps who vote badly are RINOs, Republicans in Name Only. Each day we will highlight the voting record of one RINO.

Please check back each day for a new RINO.

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.

Spec Bowers
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.

Find your own Representatives and send them your thoughts.

Share this with your friends and ask them to send a message to their legislators.
