This is a video made by a Free Stater named Dave Ridley. Dave spends his days skulking about the NH State House and the Legislative Office Building, waiting to stick his camera in the face of some unsuspecting non-Republican state rep, and attempt to get them on camera saying things that will gin up his flock of Free Stater dudebros.
The thing is, New Hampshire's 400 person legislature is populated by volunteers. NH does not have a professional legislature. These people are average citizens who get $100 a year for the pleasure of being harassed by clowns like Ridley. They wade through hundreds of proposed bills every year. The state reps do not have offices. They do not have secretaries. Some of them travel great distances to get to Concord, to work for free. This is a citizen legislature. These are hardly slick politicos - these are regular folks, trying to do the right thing for our state.
I am sorry to be posting this. I hate the idea of giving Ridley the exposure, or adding to his Bitcoin collection. The reason I'm putting this video up is simple - I want you to read the comments.
You can read the comments right here.
The comment section provides some real insight into the mind of the average Free Stater. In the comments Representative Mary Stuart Gile, a woman who serves the state of NH with no thought for financial gain, a mother, a grandmother, and a woman who has a Ph.D in education is referred to as a "fascist bitch" and an especially ugly word that begins with "c" by these frat boys.
This kind of ugliness is why the Free State Project will fail.
And in case anyone gets the idea to scrub and deny that comment section, I have screenshots.
