I just came upon this statement:

Libertarians are flooding into Red Hampshire thanks to the ‘Free State Project’, and now the state has turned blue. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

Congratulations to Senator Shaheen, who has dedicated years of her life to the citizens of New Hampshire!

The Republicans successfully ran against Obama, and now they'll be faced with the daunting task of actually having to do something! That's extremely important to them as they'll be defending a lot more seats in 2016!

And how many Libertarians ran for office and won yesterday as part of this flood?
You had no problem with Scotty boy moving to New Hampshire to run for U-S Senate when he lost the seat in Massachusetts.

Just speculation on my part but I am pretty sure that the power in Concord did not shift from Red to Blue, you can do the research if you are so inclined.
Exactly where did you run across this quote anyway?

Flooding?

The quote is from an opinion piece, Scott Brown is "close-enough" to MA and NH to run. It's not like Hillary chose New York as "close to Arkansas".

Libertarians are nicknamed "Losertarians" for a reason. They get on the ballot, and very often cause a Republican to lose.  They would be good "plants" for Democrats to take the prize, but Libertarians appear to mess things up all by themselves.

No

Speaking of Libertarians:

Post  News Hawk on Wed Nov 05, 2014 5:07 pm

This year, many of the Republican losses (e.g. Virginia ) and runoffs (e.g. Louisiana ) came as a result of Libertarians siphoning votes away from Republicans.

No

Utah's Mia Love should have won in 2012 had the Libertarian, Jim L. Vein not taken nearly 3% of the votes from Republicans. She won this time!

Your last two comments seem to be at odds with the first comment...I know, what's new about that?...in the first you blame Libertarians that are flooding into New Hampshire turning the state blue, but in the second and third you acknowledge that Libertarians draw votes away from Republicans.  If they are so liberal how is it that they draw votes from Republican candidates?

Conclusion; if your opinion piece was correct in its assumption then New Hampshire would be a deep deep red and not the purple that it is becoming.

That was a quote of another's opinion.

Libertarians don't have consistent political planks: they're known as "The Republican's Confused Cousins".

All that's apparent is that New Hampshire's demographics are changing—and not necessarily towards American Conservatism. The "Old Guard" is retiring to Arizona and Florida, I guess.

Since you did not state a source when you posted it, you posted it as your own. If you did not agree with it why would you post it to make your misguided point?

Something that you would know about being a legal resident of Florida, yes?
