Cynthia Chase, a member of the New Hampshire state legislature, says Free Staters (that is, conservatives or libertarians) “are the single biggest threat the state is facing today.” So she proposed “to make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave. One way is to pass measures that will restrict the ‘freedoms’ that they think they will find here [emphasis added].”
Chase made her comments on the blog, http://www.bluehampshire.com on Dec. 21.
She did not say exactly what kind of “measures” she would legislate to restrict the freedoms of persons to whom she objects politically. But I’m sure she’ll think of something.
One dynamic of history I never understood: how some jerk, supported by other jerks, can take captive an entire state. It happens all the time. Are there really that many cowards and idiots in any given country, that any mediocre mind, propelled by manic ambition and a total lack of scruple, can take it over? Or is it just that nobody ever acts to stop it until it’s too late?
Meanwhile, take a good look at this character. You can see a nice, big picture of her on http://www.breitbart.com/ , Jan. 3. I nominate her as the poster child for the American Left–either that, or this year’s winner of the “Cesare Lombroso Was Right” Award.
