State vs Federal Citizenship and Changing Parties to Libertarian

May 28th, 2018 - 5:48pm by FTL_Ian in

Great news! As of 2016’s election, the Libertarian Party of NH regained ballot status equal to the Rs and Ds for the first time in two decades! I’d previously been registered as a Democrat for the purposes of running for office but this year I made the switch to Libertarian, since it was the first time I’ve been able to do that since moving here in 2006.

To their credit, the cops didn’...

The three of them outnumber the total number of Libertarian Party state reps in all the other 49 states combined.

At this year’s LPNH convention in Concord both Reps Dyer and Phinney spoke to the attendees about their decision to flip to the Libertarian Party of NH and what it’s meant to them. (Rep. Stallcop wasn’t able to make it.) Phinney even highlights some...
