In other words, the New Hampshire House vaccinated the state against most future strains of the medical tyranny virus. When will other GOP legislatures get vaccinated? The Democrats have nearly been wiped off the map in states like Wyoming and South Dakota, yet the legislatures have failed to pass a single meaningful bill on medical freedom.
Three freshmen female representatives, Leah Cushman, Erica Layon, and Melissa Blasek, were instrumental in the push for medical freedom bills this session. After experiencing one disappointment after another in other states, I asked Blasek why she felt there was more success in New Hampshire than in other states with far superior GOP majorities. The young mother, who works as a music teacher and ran for office exclusively on fighting for medical freedom, told me that there were numerous factors at play.
“New Hampshire has a strong tradition of freedom, and the voters on both sides of the aisle tend to be wary of government intervention,” said Blasek. “It may have taken two years, but they’ve had it with the authoritarian response, and I think the politicians feel that.”
Blasek notes that usually the grassroots fail at first and then get discouraged, but in New Hampshire they came back the second session to retry bills that failed last year. “Activists have worked hard since the beginning of the pandemic to move the Overton window. Last year we did make a lot of progress ending the lockdown restrictions and reforming our state of emergency laws, but we failed at all attempts to block medical tyranny and the birth of the biomedical surveillance state. The activists persevered, did what they do best, and have continuously made their voices heard.”
She also credits the newly formed House Freedom Caucus, which was buttressed by representatives endorsed by Rebuild NH, an activist group she co-founded to fight the COVID response, for “making a lot of noise in the House and pushing the rest of the Republican caucus in this direction.” Blasek also notes that, unlike in other GOP-controlled bodies, “our leadership is liberty-minded and likely the best leadership anywhere in the country.”
From speaking with other legislators across the country, it is clear that most GOP leaders and committee chairs believe in our prevailing COVID policies just as fervently as the Democrats do.
Whether the New Hampshire Senate will pass the bills with as much support as the House is yet to be determined. Gov. Chris Sununu has also been surprisingly quiet about all of these bills and has a history of supporting heavy-handed COVID policies and has even criticized Sen. Ron Johnson for supporting science-based early treatment. However, the strong show of force from New Hampshire House members and the grassroots involved demonstrates that the Granite State might serve as the cold-weather alternative to Florida for those seeking to preserve our most important liberties.
