Recently I read and article about a woman,Cynthia Chase who believes that something ought to be done about those folk who have conservative values. This person recently posted that Conservatives are the “single biggest threat” that ‘her ‘state faces today. This New Hampshire Democrat wants to use her powers to legislate measures that will restrict the freedoms of the Granite State Conservatives. Case advised her fellow legislators to use their positions to make New Hampshire less welcoming to any Conservative or Libertarian planning to move into “her” state.
Her vendetta is in response to a movement by the Free State Project which is encouraging Conservatives to relocate to New Hampshire so that they can be an influence in matters of government. Ironically, the state motto of New Hampshire is “Live Free or Die”
Free State is not a political action group. It is an effort to recruit 20,000 liberty-loving, neighborly, productive people from all walks of life to move to New Hampshire. These folk believe that Government exists to protect people’s rights and should neither provide for people nor punish them for activities that interfere with no-one else.
In 2003, New Hampshire was chosen by the group as their target for several reasons. Not only does the Granite state have the 2nd lowest dependence on Federal spending in the United States but it also has the lowest State and local tax burden in the Continental US. This little state has a dynamic economy, plenty of jobs and a culture of individual responsibility as proven by the absence of seat belt and helmet requirements for adults as well a the least restrictive gun laws.
Apparently their goal is being realized because Case seems to feel threatened, thereby purposefully using her powers to write laws that would target individuals with whom she disagrees. She is determined on taking away their freedoms and liberties in hopes that those whom she is oppressing might move away and to discourage others from moving into the state. So here we have an elected official who is suggesting that the Government be used in the United States to eliminate freedoms for certain individuals in order to gain political control.
In view of the fact that the majority of the Conservatives in this Nation are Christians, either by profession or possession, one can easily see the handwriting on the wall that persecution is on the way. The evil powers of Government have taken away our freedom of having Bible and prayer in our schools; they have been successful in removing the Ten Commandments from Federal Buildings; they want to remove “In God We Trust” from our currency and now they are suing Christian Businesses who will not provide insurance coverage for abortions. The fervent effort of our ungodly government leaders to do away with our second amendment rights will more than likely lead to the subverting of our 1st amendment rights. The day will come when one will not see religious literature in Wal-Mart or any other retail establishment.
The Bible reminds us that all who live Godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. We are admonished to be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the Work of the Lord. We are to put on the whole armour of God in resisting the Devil. So much Bible prophecy has been fulfilled in my generation and I am not surprised that persecution will be included. Onward Christian Soldiers!
