This week’s My Life (in Balance) series, No. 15-18.
This week, I cover a new Suffolk University and Boston Globe poll that included a question about the Free State Project. SPOILER!: About half the respondents have never heard of the FSP, so this supports my theory that the haters are simply boosting us. Thank you!
I also read a few Letters to the Editor from the Union Leader in support of Free Staters, and conclude with a recent review of my book, THE ECSTATIC PESSIMIST: Stories of Hope (Mostly).
Find poll HERE.
Fascinating. I firmly believe the Left (+whomever has enough clout to get the NYT, Globe & New Yorker etc involved) is trying to demonize us while simply helping more people learn about the blossoming liberty movement in NH… 😀 #libertarianhomeland https://t.co/scDVXFVms4— Carla Gericke, Live Free And Thrive!

Censorproof Odysee where I’d LOVE to build out my audience:
This week, we imagine different education choices, and discuss the upcoming elections, the abortion issue and how much the Democrats are lying to their constituents leading us to wonder whether the hypocrisy hurts, and more.
This crime scene was delicious! Bardo Farm pork chop and parmesan caulimash with a “tomato butter sauce”(ish).
This time of year, I start catching up on cooking shows, and this motivates me to try new things… this time, with some leftover ripe tomatoes from last night’s casual dinner with friends.
Driving back from our hike this morning, I told Louis Calitz if I was ever on a cooking show, I’d nail the proteins–my fish is always *glistening*–but I have almost zero experience in sauces, so I’d get eliminated for not being able to “elevate a dish”.
So I came home, ordered a sauce cookbook, then made this random tomato crime scene, and we’ll see how it goes in the future!
Have you caught the first season of my rustic cooking show Freedomnomnom, where I make easy, low carb dishes in under 30 minutes (mostly)? Visit the FREEDOMNOMNOM playlist on CarlaGerickeTV and remember to SUBSCRIBE!
Free Staters are NH allies
To the Editor: The vitriol against Free Staters must stop. I’m receiving death threats, Democrats are calling for our “extermination” — Twitter took weeks to remove this — and I received a letter at my house calling me the C-word and telling me to get the F-word “out of our state.”
Whose state? About 70% of the Legislature were not born here. Individuals moving here to bolster the New Hampshire Advantage, as well as thousands of Granite Staters who now self-identify as Free Staters, are allies not enemies.
Like you, Free Staters want limited government, low taxes, no income tax, and school choice. We subscribe to the non-aggression principle, the ethical stance that you cannot force someone to do something: “Don’t hurt people and don’t take their stuff.”
We believe you are the best steward of your life and money. We believe the economic prosperity and quality of life found in the “Live Free or Die” state is worth preserving.
Sometimes, granted, the methods employed to reverse the harm being inflicted by Democrats and RINOs won’t appeal to all. On the flipside, they locked you down and called you “non-essential.” As a student of history, this is much worse than using the democratic process to try to cut a school budget or reform a government-owned ski resort.
Free Staters come in peace. We’re building a consent-based society in strong communities focused on a brighter future. If you are against Free Staters, you support the control and subjugation of your neighbors. Be a Free Stater instead!
Durette Court, Manchester
This week’s My Life (in Balance) series, No. 10-14. For context on the Manchurian candidate joke, there’s this batshit craziness coming from the left… I don’t even know what this means (or even where it came from… I just saw a random FSP post about it)…
Yesterday, Rosemary Rung, a NH Democrat, posted the tweet below, and I responded asking what we should call anti-freedom people like them. In response to that, some people chimed in, and then, in a reply to someone, I jokingly said: “Live free or comply, you non-essentials!”
Clearly, any thinking human would understand this was a choice point on the NH motto, and that I was not directing my comment to anyone, nor was I threatening anyone with “abusive or harassing” speech.
Regardless, Twitter decided to suspend my account for 12 hours, even after I deleted the post.
In case you haven’t been censored on Twitter yet, let me explain some of the steps:
1. They tell you you’ve violated a community standard, in this case, that my word are “abusive or harassing.” My words aren’t even directed at “someone”.
2. You can either click to acknowledge you have indeed violated a standard, in this case, forcing me to admit that my words are ABUSE AND HARASSMENT, in order to get your account back (this is de facto commie “admit you were wrong!”) or you can appeal.
3. The appeal box only allows a few lines of text, so you cannot make a cogent argument to defend your free speech honor.
4. They then give you another chance to “just delete it,” which, if you’re like me, you think, “Oh, ok, wth, you dumbasses, I’ll just cop to it, just gimme my account back” (that’s “app-crack addiction” right there).
5. Even after you admit to your dirty, dirty free speech violating ways, they STILL suspend your account for a certain period of time (this one for me is 12 hours).
These are the kinds of rules you could expect to see under a fascist regime. Oh wait, that is EXACTLY what Twitter is… a corporation claiming to be a private entity with its own “community standard” while also doing the Regime’s censorship for it.
TL;DR: Free speech matters. Censorship sucks.
This is what New Hampshire Democrat’s “Free State Derangement Syndrome” looks like. This is a new level of (probably?) Soros-funded madness, so I am coining a new tag for my website’s search function: FSDS. These people are unhinged. I don’t know who put this together, but it doesn’t seem to have a whole lot to actually do with New Hampshire, or what Free Staters are trying to accomplish, which is to build a consent-based society.
CONSENT… which apparently, New Hampshire Democrats now hate! Weird.
This week, I do a deep dive on the censorship of the “Hunter Biden laptop story,” and discuss whether free speech is worth preserving. I also contend that Democrat’s take on our Constitutional rights is… insane, and I think I prove it! Let me know in the comments, and buy my friend, Lou Perez’s book, That Joke Isn’t Funny Anymore, right now!
