RevCon 2021 and Lindell Dinner Recap

MIke Lindell speaking at 603 Alliance dinner

The 603 Alliance hosted two big events back to back on Saturday.  RevCon 2021, geared towards training and directing new activists, lived up to its goals. Hundreds of people arrived in Manchester from NH, and even a few of the surrounding states to get plugged in.

This event provided a great opportunity for like-minded people to come together, network, and learn how to be more effective as activists.  Our day included a series of talks and interactive sessions at which subject matter experts provided tools and details to attendees on a wide range of subjects.

Our pre-lunch speaker was author and filmmaker Trevor Loudon, and the closing conference keynote was given by entrepreneur Dan Richards, who took on the proponents of Critical Race Theory at SAU70 in Hanover, New Hampshire. Both were powerful speakers and well worth your time. (See below for video links.)

We finished the day with a buffet dinner and a rousing speech from Mike Lindell, founder & CEO of My Pillow.  Mike was excited to be there and to share his story, his passion, and all the data from the November 2020 election he’s collected.

THANKS to everyone who attended, to all of our presenters, volunteers, and to Fran Wendelboe & Diane Bitter, who did most of the work planning & managing the event.  Thanks also to all of our sponsors, including the NH Advantage PAC, DefendOurKids.org, Jenny Wilson, Don Ewing, and others who supported this effort (including sound-man extraordinaire John Irish).

Thanks also to  the good people over at Granite Grok, we have a video of everything! Grok will be publishing the video over the next few days (or weeks?).  Check it out HERE.

603 Alliance urges passage of HB2

There has been a great deal of debate in recent weeks about the state budget.  This is not just about spending; there are some key provisions in House Bill 2 (HB2) that we have spent years fighting for. Today, the 603 Alliance has issued the following statement in support of the budget.  We urge you to reach out to your State Representatives (click here to find out who your reps are) and urge them to vote FOR the budget on Thursday.

603 Alliance urges passage of HB2

On Thursday, members of the New Hampshire House will vote up or down on House Bill 2, the budget rider bill that contains provisions enacting school choice, restrictions on public funding of critical race theory in New Hampshire schools, a ban on late-term abortions, and meaningful tax cuts.  While the final version of the bill does not contain everything we could wish for, it undoubtedly delivers some historic wins for life, liberty, and limited government.

It is profoundly disappointing that one critically important element is missing; the budget bill lacks any meaningful reform of New Hampshire’s Emergency Orders statute. That law provides that the Governor may unilaterally declare a state of emergency, issue enforceable executive orders, and (according to a 2020 NH Superior Court ruling) can even limit or suspend Constitutional rights.  While reasonable people may disagree as to whether our current Governor went too far in exercising the powers granted to him under the Emergency Orders statute, it is indisputable that the law as currently written (and as interpreted by the NH Superior Court) presents a significant threat to liberty.

The question before us is whether or not our lack of satisfaction with regard to emergency orders ought to prevent us from accepting historic wins for life, education choice, lower taxes, and the prevention of indoctrination in our schools.  A small number of Republican legislators has the power to defeat this bill.  We agree with their goals, and we applaud legislators who take a strong stance in defense of liberty; but we ought not to let the perfect be the enemy of the good.

There is much to be gained by passing HB2.  A vote against the budget is a vote against school choice.  It’s a rejection of tax cuts, it gives ideologues a free pass to preach identity politics to our children, and it is a lost opportunity to save lives.

If HB2 fails, New Hampshire will be forced to live under a continuing resolution. That will require a two-thirds vote of the House, which will inevitably mean handing power to the Democrats. For freedom-oriented legislators, there are powerful implications in casting a “no” vote. If the budget fails, we lose everything. If it passes, we will have achieved a great deal.

For liberty-loving members of the NH House, it’s time to collect our winnings and celebrate.  While we would strongly prefer to see meaningful reforms to the Emergency Powers statute, the 603 Alliance Board of Directors supports the passage of HB2 and urges legislators to vote in favor of this budget.
