Glen Beck ponders moving show to New Hampshire
« on: November 23, 2009, 10:46:06 am »

Over the weekend I heard Glen Beck on his show, pondering moving to NH.   He asked for cities to write and convince him.  He thinks this could possibly be THE place

for entrepreneurs.  He's fascinated by "the history of New Hampshire"...it was fun to hear someone really wonder/guess about what FSPers allready know;

New Hampshire is THE place if you are serious about more liberty.

Except that New Hampshire has a highly educated population and has no truck with Theocrats and hystrionics. 

Mr. Beck might find a more receptive audience in some Mississippian backwater, thank you....

Don't underestimate the effect of a video camera on rhetoric.

I'm not a Beck worshipper but I think this could be a win for the project overall. If plenty of conservatives followed him here we could start to repeal lots of the taxes and fees that the dems imposed on us. Then we could educate these conservatives into libertarians.

If he does decide NH is 'the place', those who hate him will call those of you who have worked so hard for years to make this happen blind followers of HIM.

Send him letters, tell him to stay away. That's my suggestion.

Edited because I was way, way too mean... I need to self-filter more as well.

You are making an assumption that old school Republicans still exist. The Republicans nowadays are wolves in sheep's clothing.

Awesome!  More publicity is good, eh.  The more proliberty folks who check out New Hampshire, the better.

Let's make sure and let those folks know about the seacoast.

We will accomplish the roll-back of taxes simply by through the numbers of independents and moderates who will switch back the GOP after initially giving the Dems  a try. 

The arrival of Beck, however, will chase those voters away and marginalize the anti-tax movement.  Please, Mr. Beck. stay away.

And fwiw, it's rather presumtive to assume that Conservatives merely need to be Educated. Many of them need to have their most deeply held principles - often enmeshed with Theological principles - completelely deconstructed, and that often takes a lifetime.  The 'alliance' of libertarians with Social Conservatives is a mistake and a disaster that will leave libertarians jilted at the altar, if not completely enslaved by their own lovers....

The modern conservative moment circa Bill Buckley ('53) is coming apart at the seams...

1. traditionalists
2. libertarians
3. neo-cons

They are all opposed to each other's different agendas.

The unifying force in the past was fervent anti-communism.

The "war on terror" substitution of Iraq for the Soviet Union is a WEAK link.

Many people may not like Beck, but he does bring out issues that the MSM often does not, or will not. The idea of freedom and limited government works. Not because someone like Beck chooses to come to NH or stays away, or because some talking head is a pinko control freak and talks down the FSP or liberty in general. It works because it has truth on its side. Beck or no Beck.

I personally defend his right to move where he wants and to say what he wants to whomever he wants. Even if I may disagree.
