Make Your Activism for Liberty a Habit Activism for Liberty has a definite purpose. That is to bring about political and societal change in the direction of more individual freedom. It isn't merely the act of telling people our opinions. It involves action with the intent of influencing others toward greater awareness, understanding, and practice of the principles of Liberty.

Lemonade Freedom Do you ever read about something in the news that gets your blood boiling? HB1147, currently in the NH House Municipal and County Government Committee, gets mine up to a thousand degrees. Don’t get me wrong; it’s a positive, simple, and logical piece of legislation that needs to be voted into law without hesitation, but… (Read more)
Protectionist Bill Ends Program That Allows More EMS Workers in NH A bill proposed by three Republicans and three Democrats would remove New Hampshire from the interstate EMS compact called ‘REPLICA’ (Recognition of EMS Personnel Licensure Interstate CompAct), which is currently comprised of 18 states.

What is Local Control? Time and time again when legislation comes up we hear the “local control” argument.

In 1993, sixteen states did not allow any tint on… (Read more)

In an effort to increase sales tax revenue for the State and help fund education for underprivileged children and prison… (Read more)
Selfless Self-Ownership: Reconciling Liberty-Minded Living with a Sense of Community Libertarian types are as selfish as they come.  All they want is to be left alone. They don’t believe anyone should do anything for anyone else.  They just don’t care… Heard that before?  Me too; it seems to be a fairly common assumption.  As a liberty lover in what could be called a “statist” job,… (Read more)
Lobbying, Finger Pointing, and Public Safety A recent letter to the editor in a local paper sparked my interest.  It concerned HB664, which would have mandated that “No insurance company, agent, or adjuster shall knowingly fail to pay a claim to the claimant or repairer (my emphasis) to the extent the claimant’s vehicle is repaired in conformance with applicable manufacturer’s procedures.” … (Read more)

It represents a simplified version of the scoring that is completed at the end of the session. Votes in this report are unweighted with regard to the liberty impact of each bill and… (Read more)
One Person CAN Make a Difference You might think that being just one person in the 400-member New Hampshire House would be a pretty powerless position, but there were at least two examples this past session where the outcome of an issue was changed by just one or two Reps. The simplest case was a vote that passed by the slimmest… (Read more)
