Believe me I non-stop fax, email and call my local, state and federal reps. Many of them know my voice before I say who I am-I am a big PITA. I wish more people were.

Wait until Obama brings out his "cap & trade" bill. His spokesperson said it will only add $2,500 a year to our electric bills, and no, I'm not making this up!!! BTW there is no such thing as "global warming, but don't let the sheeple know that. As for this NH gas tax.......NH Dems think because it's a little less than the Mass gas tax raise it's ok. Well, it's not ok. Call Concord folks and let them know how you feel.

Our current state gas tax is 19.6 cents per gallon. Adding 15 cents brings that to 34.6 cents. That is a 76% tax hike. Future sign:

17.5% budget increase?
76% gas tax hike?
Vote Republican 2010

Actually-vote for fiscally conservative republicans. Unfortunately there are republicans who along with democrats have supported the toll increases, this gas tax etc. Research who you vote for.

Yes it seems many Politicians simply say they are Republican and vote liberal on most import issues.

Indeed. A lot of politicians need a good lesson in fiscal conservation. Perhaps this is more obvious at the national level, but certainly at the state level too.

I find myself agreeing with you at least somewhat (mebbee about 17.5% ;-)
