Another post confusing philosophy with party.  What will it take to understand that Liberty does NOT mean Republican, and Democrats are NOT necessarily the enemy?
Not necessarily....just generally.  :o

Joe (MaineShark) is hilarious.
To the best of my knowledge, posting on the internet is the extent of his "activism".
He also loves sniping at people he considers to be "less pure" than his 100%-pure self.

FWIW, I am an anarcocapitalist. I am totally upfront about that. I even talk about it frankly on a TV show shown in over a dozen towns across NH. But I'm not pure enough for Joe.

A lot of the growth is in towns where Republicans tend to do far better in elections than Democrats.

Quote
Bedford’s population grew 16 percent from 2000 to 2010, while Brookline saw a 19 percent increase and Windham grew a whopping 27 percent.

Mont Vernon saw 18 percent growth, Litchfield grew 12 percent and Milford grew by 11 percent.

Pelham 18.17

Windham grew by 2,883 and each State Rep will represent around 3,300 people so this town alone almost grow by almost a whole State Rep.  It is worth noting that Windham is one of the most Republican places in NH.

Overall, heavily Republican areas are expected to gain State Reps and heavily Democratic areas are expected to remain the same or lose State Reps because of redistricting.
Its really dependent upon various situations. Neither the Dems nor Reps have a majority contingency in NH, so the Independents determine the outcome.

We don't need the government to give gold and silver value. Gold and silver never lose their value.

No such thing in NH as a Independent.

Correct, but saying "Undeclareds" sounds silly.

While it is true that the largest segment of the voting population in NH choices to be undeclared, my above statements are also entirely true.

Same way I can be an atheist but really hope that certain religious leaders would disavow the idea of holy war.

We don't need the government to give gold and silver value. Gold and silver never lose their value.

They don't seem to now but if everyone uses them as currency then the might lose value.
Or at least have impurities put in to overvalue them.
Some people may not notice that they are not pure.

I still think mercury or palladium should be the coinage metals. :D
I wonder what Hg's value was throught history.

What does this have any relationship to the House power?

what are you talking about?  The value of gold, silver, and everything else is constantly in flux, and is different for every person.

If anyone is gonna take NH to the promised land (secession) its gonna be Republicans leading the charge
* I doubt if secession would be a promised land. We'd just end up being subjugated by the CIA, the Mafia, the IMF, or who knows what. In other words, there'd probably be virtually no change.
* I think the only hope is internal reform, with help from people in public office, who sympathize with Oath Keepers, FSP etc. And I think it has to start with Free Towns, or in other states Free Counties, etc.
