Update from State Rep Beth Folsom

Update: June 9,2021


I am responding after two hard fought days trying to get good pieces of legislation passed. None of us are perfect and I have made my share of freshman mistakes.  We lost some key battles due to some extremely weak Republicans.  Those are the ones you should be focusing on.

Have you participated in hearings this year?  Have you sent notes of encouragement when a legislator votes according to our constitution?   Have you started recruiting strong constitutional candidates yet?   Are you recruiting, training, and raising funds yet?   Have you paid the costs of sending legislators to the ALEC conference?  Or Wallbuilders Pro-Family Legislative conference?  Here’s an easier one, how about mowing their lawn, splitting wood, or helping them get their gardens planted? We are not all wealthy, young, and healthy but still often give 40 plus hours a week on legislative work for a whopping 100 bucks a year.

Spend some time building up the slightly imperfect legislators or you will loose them and end up with democrats instead.

My final word, PRAY for these hard working legislators. Pray without ceasing!

God bless, Beth

General Don Bolduc

Retired Brig. General Don Bolduc will be our featured speaker for our June 10 Dessert with Friends event.

In addition, Eric Strapp from the Convention of States

Convention of States is an initiative that calls for an Article V Convention of States to make proposals that “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials.” Once two-thirds (34) of the states pass our resolution, the convention will be called.

Eric Strapp, New Hampshire’s district Captain for the Convention of States will speak briefly on our status..


Dessert With Friends is a monthly gathering of like-minded conservative Americans who stand for liberty and the Constitution. We serve coffee, decaf, soda, cookies, cakes at the Ashland American Legion **.

Critical Race Theory – Why you should be outraged and what you can do about it.

If you don’t subscribe to Imprimus, from Hillsdale College you are missing an enormous opportunity to keep yourself informed.  (To subscribe and read the full editorial, click this link.)

This month’s editorial is on Critical Race Theory, What it is and how to fight it.  Here are some excerpts, but I encourage you to read the entire article.

CRT is a descendent of Marxism.  Classic Marxism poised the “Haves” (i.e. Capitalists) against the “Have Nots” (i.e. the workers.  Since that concept didn’t work in America because of our culture of entrepreneurship, the left subsititued “The Oppressed” for the “Have Not” and the “Oppressors” for the “Haves”.  This is the concept of identity politics pitting blacks versus whites, men against women, gays versus straights, etc.  By their definition, if you were not part of an oppressed class, you were an oppressor.  Here are three examples of how this is being taught in schools:

  1. In Cupertino, California, an elementary school forced first-graders to deconstruct their racial and sexual identities and rank themselves according to their “power and privilege.”
  2. in Springfield, Missouri, a middle school forced teachers to locate themselves on an “oppression matrix” based on the idea that straight, white, english-speaking, Christian males are members of the oppressor class and must atone for their privilege and “covert white supremacy”
  3. In Philadelphia, an elementary school forced fifth graders to celebrate “Black Communism” and simulate a Black Power rally to free 1960s radical Angela Davis from prison.

According to a recent Gallup poll, 77 percent of conservatives are afraid to share their political beliefs publicly.  This has to stop.  We can’t live in fear.  Choose courage.  Get engaged.

It’s easy to stop a lone dissenter; it’s much harder to stop 10, 20 or 100 who stand up for American principles.  PARC is putting together a team of people who will write letters to politicians and Letters to the Editor of newspapers.  To be put on that list, send an email to secretary@plymoutharearepublians.or.
