Legalizing pot could be boon for New Hampshire

Fellow member of New Hampshire Seacoast Liberty, Jack Thorsen wrote a great opinion piece entitled “Legalizing pot could be boon for New Hampshire” over here. Here’s a brief excerpt
It is ridiculous that we have people in jail for what is essentially a victimless crime, and the whole process from stake-out to bust to arrest to prosecution to incarceration wastes an enormous amount of time and taxpayer money.

Government is a poor substitute for community

Another great op-ed by a member of New Hampshire Seacoast Liberty, Scott McPherson.  Here’s a brief excerpt:

I don’t know Ms. Hanscom, so I can’t pass judgment. But it’s sad to see neighbors looking instantly to the heavy hand of the state to address an everyday occurrence — one that is generally harmless, for all the panic it can cause — instead of looking out for one another.

Good government frees, bad government enslaves

Another great op-ed by a member of New Hampshire Seacoast Liberty, Scott McPherson.  Here’s a brief excerpt:

Humans regularly trade what is theirs for something they believe will benefit them more. In early civilizations this meant barter, but a more complex society requires a medium of exchange — money — and for this people work to earn the goods and services they believe will improve their lives.

Might Does Not Make Right

Fellow member of New Hampshire Seacoast Liberty, Scott Mcpherson wrote a great essay today entitled “Memo to the Nashua Telegraph: Might Does Not Make Right” that is up on Lew Rockwell today. Here’s a brief excerpt:

To the victor go the spoils, and the winners write the history books, this latter coming unavoidably with the former. Still, facts persist, despite their inconvenience.

One fact that seems particularly inconvenient to the editors of New Hampshire’s Nashua Telegraph is that the government of the United States is a limited government.

Police State Mission-Creep

Fellow member of New Hampshire Seacoast Liberty, Scott Mcpherson wrote a great essay today entitled “Police State Mission-Creep” that is up on Lew Rockwell today.  Here’s a brief excerpt:

Forget your good ol’ days when Constable Smith kept the peace on his beat all by himself. Now it’s pure strength in numbers. Even when spotted at the roadside conducting something as benign as “traffic control,” i.e. a speed trap, there will always be two or more policemen, waiting to pounce.
