There are 16 known Free State Project members in the New Hampshire State House, plus 1 additional Honorary FSP member who actively helps the Free State Project build a network here. How did those “freedom-loving, personal liberty” Free Staters vote on bills of consequence this week?
Overwhelmingly for discrimination and against child human trafficking victims. By the numbers:
The vast majority, (11) Free Staters, voted to keep discrimination in place and also sided with johns over child human trafficking victims:
Another (2) Free Staters voted to table the transgender non-discrimination bill, but at least voted to protect child human trafficking victims:
Another (2) Free Staters did the opposite, voting against the transgender tabling motion but also voting against protecting child human trafficking victims:
And the last (2) Free Staters were only present for the transgender tabling motion, and thankfully voted on the side of non-discrimination:
For those counting:
76% of Free Staters voted to keep discrimination in place
87% of Free Staters sided with johns over child human trafficking victims
Over here at Granite State Progress, we believe personal liberty means not being discriminated against because of your gender identity, and that freedom includes that children shouldn’t be trapped by the bondage of human trafficking.
