FK is *not* the FSP.
I am merely the one of the most vocal anti-FK members of FSP. Many of the most effective activists I've spoken to -- the ones who are profoundly libertarian, yet are liked and in some cases elected by their neighbors in town -- share the opinion that FK has, as a whole, been on balance at least somewhat of a negative, a liability, a detriment, to the goal of Liberty in our Lifetime, within NH.
Not because of the motives, but because of the implementation. It's just very confrontational, in your face, very un-New-England, very un-New-Hampshire.
And I can already hear Ian's cognitive dissonance rationalizations kicking in.
Dude... the brand is so bad, it's like maybe they should start killing puppies or advocating for cannibalism. It AMAZINGLY bad. Talk about losing the battle for hearts and minds!
