Democrat-turned-Libertarian State Rep Speaks at Keene State College

State Representative Joseph Stallcop made headlines and history earlier this year when he became the second state rep this year to flip parties to the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire. He was elected to the Keene seat as a Democrat in 2016.

Earlier this fall, Stallcop was invited to give a presentation at Keene State College during a larger event where multiple speakers were on campus. I was able to attend and record video, which includes his presentation and the questions afterward:

  1. Wow, a captivated audience of 7 people. When did you record this one Ian? It looks like several months ago considering the small audience was wearing shorts. Joseph Stallcop hasn’t done anything in office except take up space. He won his election because no one else was running for that same position.

  2. Say Jacks, did you know that a lot of us prefer a politician willing to behave himself and stay out of everyone’s business? If only busybodying voters like yourself could learn to do the same. Now that would be progress.

  3. So Jacks, with all the extra money you’ll have in your pocket next year due to these much-needed tax cuts, maybe you should consider spending some on these cryptocurrencies we’ve all been talking about. They’re finally starting to go down in price you know. Now’s your chance to scarf some up before their value goes back up again. What do you say, Jacks? Are you game for that?

  4. This is fantastic news, Jacks! Now’s your chance to go buy some! They’re sure to go up in price again eventually, you know. Then you can sell them at a premium and retire by 50 just like you’re always talking about. Aren’t you excited, pookums?

  5. Bit-coin lost a third of its value in less than 24 hours. Looks like Ian will have to sell off his folder of girls on his newer computer.

  6. OS darling, to make money at these sorts of things you have to buy when the prices are down. So instead of wasting your money on lottery tickets, maybe you could go online and buy some cryptocurrency instead? It’s really, really easy, my love.

  7. Would you like to make some money off of Ian by buying some of his folders of girls? I’ve heard he has quite the selection!

  8. Why so cautious, plum pudding? You can’t be a hero if you don’t start being more assertive. Fortunately, you have me to help you! Now the first thing you’ll need to do is file a criminal complaint on Ian. Here’s the address you’ll need to go to:

    Keene Police Department
    400 Marlboro St, Keene, NH 03431

    They’re open at all hours, by the way, so you shouldn’t have any trouble getting prompt service. Now make sure to be perfectly honest when you speak with them, darling. Tell them exactly what you know about Ian and don’t embellish. You wouldn’t want to get into any trouble for filing a false report. The authorities really frown on that sort of thing, you know.

  9. Used to be a Democrat?

  10. Making use of complete sentences is the foundation of effective communication, Ernesto darling.

  11. Hollywood, the media, and advertisers brainwash Americans to be immoral, go on anti-depressants, get fat, take out student loans, go in debt, take out mortgages, get married, get divorced, go on welfare, support tyranny, and embrace wars, but maybe part of the reason the US is collapsing now is because these actions conflict with traditional American values of being moral, staying healthy, being responsible, being independent, loving freedom, and supporting peace.

  12. Great job Joseph! I didn’t have time to watch the whole thing, but what I did see I liked.

    As far as Bitcoin taking a nosedive I’m STILL doing better with it. I lost about 15% from where I received Bitcoin at, but am still making about 18% MORE this week in spite of the decline. You can save up to 33% off of purchases if you buy stuff off Amazon through I’ve been getting 19-23% most of the time and occasionally 33% for those times I’ve been willing to or able to wait longer. The thing is this past two weeks I’ve been increasing my #s on most orders to 33% off and they’ve been going through within a weeks time. Which means while Bitcoin went down I’m STILL doing better than without it. So suck it jack.
