Conservatives and Libertarians alike know that they are put down time and time again (occasionally by each other; but soon, we may have a bigger threat to deal with.) To quote Cynthia Chase (D-NH) in the Union Leader newspaper: “In the opinion of this Democrat, Free Staters are the single biggest threat the state is facing today.” She continued, saying that “One way is to pass measures that will restrict the ‘freedoms’ that they think they will find here. Another is to shine the bright light of publicity on who they are and why they are coming.” Now, she was referring to the developing Libertarian Free State Project, which is trying to get people to move to New Hampshire.
To say that the people who believe that Government should be small, that spending should be cut, and that people should be finding jobs (so they can get off Entitlement Programs) should have their freedoms limited is ludicrous. The Constitution of the United States guarantees FREE SPEECH (see Article I, Section I), basically saying that people can say what they want, think what they want, and not be infringed upon. What she proposes, though, goes against the Constitution itself. What she calls for, the censorship of Conservative and Libertarian values and arguments, moves to defy one of the freedoms the Founding Fathers and so many others fought and died to attain and defend. Many people have made the ultimate sacrifice over many years
to keep these freedoms alive, and she basically wants to take what they have done and throw it in the trash. She wants to take the freedoms given to us Conservatives and Libertarians, shred them up, and say “you can’t do that”.
