Within less than days before Election Day; New Hampshire, the epicenter of political division of barnyard politics, and treating local politicians with differing views as sworn enemies makes me really want to research, Am I voting for the right party?
I’ll start with the New Hampshire GOP, the statewide Republican party network. Their views is much like the 1950s insisting the competing party is being financed by some communistic party attempting to destroy America.
On their very own Web site (yes, apparently GOP is now a TLD), this third rate shit can be seen for yourself to see what your local politician is ordered to believe because the NHGOP is like an army. You don’t obey, you’ll be shamed to hell. This coming from a writer who tends to not vote for extreme Democrats, and if he had a choice to vote in Ted Kennedy’s district, he would’ve voted for Scott Brown. Now this writer comes off to be a Liberal-Democrat for
even having a centrist view! I meant having my own views as an independent man!
There manifest of “principals” is almost like going to Sunday school! I am sorry I do not like being ordered as 33 year old to subscribe to a single narrative from some geriatric people with apparent racist, homophobic, ableist views, even if they haven’t uttered slurs or stereotypes. Not returning telephone calls to fund the Developmentally Delayed Waitlist shouldn’t be just a Democratic/Liberal/Moonbat policy
These lists are very long, so I will quote three of their main principals, then the bullet points to call out their bluff
We believe in free people, free markets and free enterprise.
Can you provide me examples? For a young person like me who finished high school years ago that tries to continue to learn new things, this seems to be something Gram may know when she was 18. Language is very dated, completely undecodeable and vague
We believe that individual liberty is guaranteed under the Constitutions of the United States and New Hampshire, that the liberty of the people must be protected above the power of the government, and that it is only through an adherence to our founding documents that we will continue to grow as a free, Constitutional Republic.
Talk about 1950s English where no-name brands had Capital Letters. Notice America-first before New Hampshire nor cities and towns
We believe as the New Hampshire Constitution states, that acquiring, possessing and protecting property is a natural, essential and inherent right.
This came in the 20th line. The NHGOP doesn’t give a damn about local issues. All Politics are National. I’ll explain in a moment, but I lied, a few more:
We believe that the history of the Republican Party is a story of strength, courage and patriotism; our party was founded in the fight to end the despicable practice of slavery, it was the Republican Party that fought for the right of all women to vote, it was Republicans in Congress who fought to overcome the southern Democrats’ resistance to pass civil rights legislation and it is Republican values that will lead our nation forward in freedom and opportunity for all.
Yes, we all know the democrats in the south were racist, but do you really need to throw the current party’s brand under the bus (notice proper-noun Capitalization.) The NHGOP just acknowledges this as a fact, there is a difference between acknowledging it and embracing it.
The last point is clearly a punch to the nuts of the donkeys and a complete fuck-you to anyone outside the right; again if you’re-not-one-of-us-your’re-one-of-them
We, the people of the New Hampshire Republican Party, pledge to our neighbors across our great, beautiful and proud state, that we remain dedicated to maintaining a limited, affordable government, to lead with integrity, character and compassion, and to forever defend the freedom that has made the United States of America a beacon of hope for all people.
“That the history of the nation during the last (six) years has fully established the propriety and necessity of the organization and perpetuation of the Republican Party, and that the causes that called it into existence are permanent in their nature, and now, more than ever before, demand its peaceful and constitutional triumph…
That the present Democratic Administration has far exceeded our worst apprehensions in its measureless subserviency to the exactions of (special) interests…and in its general and unvarying abuse of the power intrusted to it by a confiding people…
That the people justly view with alarm the reckless extravagance which pervades every department of the Federal Government; that a return to rigid economy and accountability is indispensable to arrest the systematic plunder of the public treasury by favored partisans…(and)
Finally, having thus set forth our distinctive principals and views, we invite the co-operation of all citizens, however differing on other questions, who substantially agree with us in their affirmance and support.” – Republican Platform, 1860
The NHGOP’s bullet points is more like political weapons than actual results. That’s going to be a theme they will try to sell you but actually lie black on white. On the subject of Low Taxes are the result of Low Spending (something preached by Governor Meldrim Thompson in the 1970s) they preach on
- Limit the growth of state spending to not more than the rate of inflation plus population growth
Again the logic doesn’t make sense if say you have a lot of Massholes visiting our state often, which the local communities are burden with for resources. Again this is the party for people who live in Hart’s Location or Mason FFS.
- Oppose “downshifting” of costs and regulatory enforcement from state to local government
No examples given.
- Maintain local control of spending and taxes designed to support local services
But yet the New Hampshire Department of Safety is growing, the Department of Revenue Administration is the hacks that set the local property taxes to municipalities dozens of miles away, if a Hack has even gone to said town
- Work to reduce energy costs and remove New Hampshire from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative
An act of “sovereignty” to make the state appear to be very independent by giving the finger to our neighbors. Yes, I can see the reason of being “different” and not “jumping off the bridge” but your own party is preaching said principals yourself!
- Reject expanded casino and video lottery gambling as a means to balance the budget or increase spending
Because I guess in their worldly-view, it’s sinful and the state should be encouraging it. Goes against the conflicting libertarian views in their own principals!
In the Government Structure section, this is where 1950s Government can’t work in the age of Enterprise Resource Planning, Information Technology being part of business, and general accounting requirements expected for a state that serves over a million residents, big or small governments.
- Justify expenditures against measurable benefits
I am all for justification, but “against” what “measurable benefits”?
- Prioritize programs to ensure effective spending
Triage, classic Military/troop style of management
- Reward employees who save money and/or exceed their goals
they want to cut funding, but give a raise to the commissioners, I assume?
- Sunset programs and regulations to force periodic reevaluation
What examples? Your news release pages are often ordering apologies from those evil “Democrats”!
- Privatize programs and functions that can be handled more effectively by the private sector
Oh this has proven to fail and the most at risk citizens become more vulernable, putting the state at a bigger burden. What this really means, is the state wants to write off responsibility, when a project become “privatized” it means “not our fault anymore!” A classic Triple-D, approach, defensive and deflective.
- Support the concept of a people’s veto
Examples? No. Then why support an empty cause?
- Expand openness and transparency to employment, expenditures and all recipients of taxpayers’ funds
This requires the logic of running the government like an enterprise and not some mum-and-pop shop where using QuickBooks will not go well for Standard & Poor’s and Morningstar to review our state’s debt.
- Protect the privacy of individuals from government agencies and employees who abuse their power and position
But when WMUR-TV Manchester does it and the Union Leader, against private citizens that’s all OK? So much for the logic of “individual rights”
The schooling section the NHGOP prides themselves as “Excellence in Education”. You can’t make this shit up.
- Promote education freedom and parental rights to control the education of their children
This is a redundant statement, should be combined below with:
- Encourage education freedom to allow all parents to choose the best public, private, charter or home school program for their children
i.e. “sheltered” kids who are forced by their parents to think a certain way when in “the real world” of Southern New Hampshire, there is a diverse viewpoints, whether you like it or not; whether you agree with them or not.
- Support market forces to provide and improve education
What has the private sector; specifically corporations done to education? I thought this was the small business owner party?
The last subject is how they begin, on “Federalism”. To me this is governing form the very top, and I thought New Hampshire was all about borders. So the logic of separation of power and using the Federal Government as a template makes no logical sense at all… save the best for last?
- Oppose any form of amnesty for illegal aliens
What if the Feds say you have to comply if another Presidant comes in? Now you’re double-talking
- Define trespass to include illegal presence in New Hampshire
- Oppose federal programs that contradict the ninth or tenth amendment to the US Constitution; these amendments reserve unenumerated rights and powers to the states and the people
How come you didn’t say “Ninth or Tenth Amendment”? You are how you communicate. If your communication, language structure, and thought logic conflicts with them all, this is why you’re being made fun of and someone in the NHGOP Cult will probably call me a “Tax and Spend Liberal Democrat”…
- Oppose all laws, programs, and mandates from local, national, and international organizations and governments contrary to our principles: including, but not limited to, educational standards, United Nations programs, international treaties, sustainable development initiatives, wealth redistribution plans, and punitive environmental controls.
Again can I say this conflicts with their anti-racist viewpoint in the 30 point manifest?
- Take any and all actions possible to protect against the implementation of any part of Sharia law in New Hampshire, including legislation outlawing Sharia law
When did someone put Sharia Law in our state? I am a 9/11 teen, and yes I remember the war on terror, but we have to be relevant to what is our current threat in our own borders, so I can’t understand your point.
I said early on that the NHGOP preaches to people whose neighbor is cows and horses. I am a life long resident, and I hate to stereotype my own people. Most New Hampshirites live south of Concord; where there are people that exist. That may not look exactly like them, because they are “God’s child” are human, and will think differently, that they are independent thinkers. The party wants to homogenize people into a single group like a religious cult and use rhetoric like a “Tax and Spend Liberal” democrat; or use conspiracy theories like the NH Department of Transportation having some agenda against named Merrimack residence according to that illogical fight a decade ago.
Supposedly in the logic of the NHGOP, they think living in constant fear, will keep them accountable and alive. Really? Worrying to sleep another party takes over the General Court? And yet they’ll bash the other party’s lifestyle eating up their lifespan?
They blame the Democrat party for the issues, but they never seem to look at themselves in the mirror?
Where is your accountability?
Wait…I can’t question authority? I am a fucking adult, stop treating me like a goddamned child!
I would agree alot to the NHGOP if only they had better minded people and had a better way to communicate like an ol adult, but they talk like Presidant Trump whose language structure is more of a 5th grader, and these people finished high school or had even completed college, and they still talk like they’re in a locker room!
One day the party like the Old Man of the Mountain will fall into the Profile Like; and the NHGOP will have to rebuild once again.
P.S. There was a quote from the late Steve Jobs when asked by Bob Cringley in the 1996 Triumph of the Nerds documentary with regards to Microsoft. His words I remember hearing on TV then, and this is how I view the NHGOP, because from a designer mindset, the Trump campaign and many NHGOP cult followers tend to Microsoft products to promote themselves. so it’s fitting
“The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste, they have absolutely no taste, and what that means is – I don’t mean that in a small way I mean that in a big way. In the sense that [a ten second pause follows] they they don’t think of original ideas and they don’t bring much culture into their product ehm and you say why is that important – well you know proportionally spaced fonts come from type setting and beautiful books, that’s where one gets the idea – if it weren’t for the Mac they would never have that in their products and ehm so I guess I am saddened, not by Microsoft’s success – I have no problem with their success, they’ve earned their success for the most part. I have a problem with the fact that they just make really third rate products.”
Let’s be honest, the NH GOP is really a “third rate product”
