    Come on folks. Let's help stop the massive tax increase that's about to happen in Maine! A few people in Maine worked hard to help Ron Paul. Now let's work to spread the word of this news far into Maine so that we can try to help the people of Maine stop it (or at least reduce the massive increase).

    We weren't able to stop the massive tax increases in VA (a state where Ron Paul did well), MD, WY, CA or MN (a state where Ron Paul did well) but maybe we can work to stop this in Maine (another state where Ron Paul did well).

    A related story. Watch a video of Maine Governor LePage say that a Maine Democratic State Senator is anal rapping the people of Maine and not using Vaseline.

    White did the worst of the 4 candidates in the 2 seat district. The pro-liberty candidate did the best.

    All of the Republicans at that debate won (including the pro-liberty Republican) and all of the Democrats at that debate lost (including the 1 you are thinking of).

    Earlier in the day, Rand Paul spoke at a free stater owned bar in Manchester where he spoke to mostly GOP insiders.

    There is a low quality video of his speech in Manchester. The Manchester speech does include Q & A, though

    That law says that a judge cannot prevent the defense from fully informing the jury of its right to judge the facts and

    the application of the law.

    New Hampshire Representative McClarren has set the groundwork to submit a bill which goes further. 2013-H-0258-R is titled requiring courts to inform the jury of its right to judge the facts and the application of law. This means that a judge would go from having an option to talk about jury nullification, to being required to say a couple sentences about the subject.
    Huge. This is as big as Miranda; "you have the right to remain silent" being required during arrest.

    6th Amendment US Constitution:

    In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.
    Impartiality (also called evenhandedness or fair-mindedness) is a principle of justice holding that decisions should be based on objective criteria, rather than on the basis of bias, prejudice, or preferring the benefit to one person over another for improper reasons.
    Someone who is hired to be a repo agent may not have a contractual obligation to determine whether the collateral he collects is for debts which are legitimately are in default, but he has a moral obligation to refuse his assignments if he suspects that he’s seizing legitimate property. If he refuses assignments based on tenuous grounds, he may justly be fired, but if he has some certainty that he’s seizing legitimate property, he becomes as much a thief as his employer. Likewise with the juror.
    Everyone, regardless of his role, has a personal moral obligation to treat others justly and refrain from willingly participating in injustice.
    To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man. ~William Shakespeare, Hamlet
    I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free, because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything that I do.

    BTW, I don't think I was clear. There are only a total of 6 New Hampshire House seats in Goffstown. If all 6 candidates win, all 6 seats will be filled with pro-liberty candidates.

    Oh, and the Republican Senate candidate for Goffstown, Phil Greazzo, is also pro-liberty. So if all 6 candidates and Phil win, all of the state legislators representing Goffstown will be pro-liberty.

    Here is a sample email someone sent. It is for the NYC market. Feel free to change it and use in your market as a follow up to your phone call.

    Mr. xxxxxx,
    I read that Michael Savage is leaving the airwaves. I called your station this morning and they told me to email you with my radio show recommendation. I want to encourage you to check out Free Talk Live .

    It's an open phones, issues oriented talk show that I listen to every single night of the week. They are liberty-oriented, and very independent minded, which I think many of Savage's listeners would appreciate. Due to the limited call screening process, they let ANYONE who calls in on the air, so there's always interesting and unique things to hear! I think NYC listeners, myself included, would really love (or hate) what they have to say, which is great for talk radio.

    They are on 110 radio stations nationwide, and growing all the time.

    I don't currently listen to WOR 710, but if you put Free Talk Live on the air weeknights in Savage's old timeslot, I definitely would.

    Thanks for your time!

    Here is another interesting county sheriff candidate in New Hampshire. Chris Conley is the currently elected Carroll County, NH sheriff.

    Police chiefs weigh in on sheriff's race

    Some were also concerned with Conley for his support of what they say is "radical" organization called the County Sheriff's Project. The Sheriff's Project's website says the organization is dedicated to "enforcing the bill of rights and protecting people's liberties."

    "I am not at all in favor of this right wing Tea Party Republican thing," a chief said, "and Conley is part of that."
    When asked about his connections to political groups that the chiefs said they didn't like, such as one led by former Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack, Conley said Mack asked him to serve on the board of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, which was formed in January. Conley described the organization as nonpartisan. He said the purpose of Mack's organization is to support sheriffs and police officers.

    Mack is an outspoken critic of the federal government and champion of states' rights. Conley said Mack does discuss the proper roles for state, federal and local law enforcement agencies, which can be confusing. However, Conley said Mack wasn't radically anti-federal government.

    Some chiefs seemed to resent Mack's organization, which they say claims to be more constitutional than other law enforcement agencies that don't participate. These chiefs said they all take their oaths to protect the constitution very seriously.

    A video on the County Sheriff's Project's website shows a sheriff from Long Island who believes he has the power to stop the federal government from enforcing portions the National Defense Authorization Act. According to ABC News, the NDAA allows the military to detain American citizens without charge if they are suspected of terrorism.

    One chief said Conley shows up unprepared at county meetings, which are videotaped.

    A chief, who offered no opinion of the sheriff's race, said Conley did shorten the menu of services the sheriff's office would provide but he doesn't hold that against Conley.

    Conley said the county shouldn't be offering traffic-accident reconstruction services because it's time and cost prohibitive. Similarly, Conley felt the K-9 unit was too time intensive. The county sheriff's office never had a certified traffic-accident reconstruction expert in the first place. The traffic accident investigation equipment that the county does have is outdated. Accident reconstruction should be done by state police because they are the "subject matter experts," said Conley.
    Disbanding the drug task force was up to the chiefs, said Conley who says his agency has been aggressive in the fight against drugs.

    One chief said he was undecided but was leaning for Richardi. The Conway Daily Sun counted this chief's answer as a vote for Richardi.

    John DiStaso's Granite Status: New Hampshire in the political spotlight again
    New Hampshire Union Leader

    CONSERVATIVE RATINGS. In the week leading up to the Sept. 11 state primary, two key conservative group have released voter guides, complete with endorsements and ratings for legislative and Executive Council candidates.
    The Republican Liberty Caucus of New Hampshire listed 145 “endorsed” or “recommended” candidates for the House, Senate or council. An “endorsed” candidate scored at least 85 percent on either its 2011-2012 legislative scorecard or its candidate survey, while a “recommended” candidate scored at least 80 percent.

    The lists of endorsed or recommended or their ratings are too long to be reported here, but Cornerstone's guide can be found at and the RLCNH's at
    In the RLCNH guide, “endorsed” Senate candidates are John Reagan in District 17, Phil Greazzo in District 20, Dennis Acton in District 23, Phyllis Woods in District 4, Cynthia Coolidge Howard in District 5 and Joshua Youssef in District 7.

    “Endorsed” Executive Council candidates are Robert Burns in District 4 and David Wheeler in District 5.

    Jerry Thibodeau, who is in a primary battle with incumbent Raymond Burton in District 1, is a “recommended” candidate.
