New NH PAC Seeks to Transform GOP into "Party of Liberty"

Stark 360

The Free State Project neither endorses any particular candidates or legislation as an organization, nor encourages any particular political action by its participants. However, the FSP has always encouraged its participants to exert their fullest practical effort toward liberty in whatever manner they see fit. In that light, this new effort in New Hampshire bears noting:

As for [Stark 360's] goal, here is how Day put it in his news release:

“Crushing debt, unfunded entitlements, the government takeover of healthcare, overregulation, the decaying of our public schools, and massive government intrusion into our private lives are a direct assault on our liberty and individual rights.

“What if we could prove that liberty works? What if we could transform the Republican Party into a party of liberty that embraces the millennial generation? What if we could break the cycle of failed Republican candidates who support the expansion of the welfare state and position the country for a Goldwater/Reagan Republican in 2016?”

Freecoast Festival Schedule Filling Out

PORTSMOUTH - The Freecoast.org, which fosters the growing liberty movement in the Seacoast region of New Hampshire, has released new details about the upcoming first annual Freecoast Festival.

The event takes place Sept. 19-20, 2014 in the towns of Portsmouth, Newmarket and Lee, New Hampshire.

The weekend's festivities kick off with a private screening of Hori Smoku: The Life of Norman K. Collins at the Hotel Portsmouth. This feature-length documentary explores the life of iconoclast Norman "Sailor Jerry" Collins. Collins is the father of modern-day tattooing, whose uncompromising lifestyle and larger-than-life persona made him an American legend. Through rare interviews, photographs, and archival footage, Hori Smoku tells the story of this radical entrepreneur who built an underground movement that eventually went mainstream. Complementary rum-soaked Holy Donuts will be served. Coffee, beer & wine will be available at a cash bar.

4th Amendment Dead Ahead

By Carla Gericke*

The mission? Protect the peaceful people of New Hampshire from the Thin Blue Revenue Seeking Line. How? More than 30 liberty loving locals, Free Staters and others alike, spent Friday night, July 25, 2014, warning motorists in Manchester of a suspicionless "sobriety" checkpoint. New Hampshire boasts many quaint laws, including one that requires police departments to announce the date, time and place of DUI checkpoints.

Around 10 p.m. on this balmy summer evening, activists started lining up along Elm Street, the main thoroughfare from downtown. From our vantage point, the single-direction suspicionless checkpoint was tucked behind an incline, hidden from view to approaching motorists. A coincidence? As someone who has only been fined for speeding on a downhill, I think not.

Portsmouth to Get Its Own Liberty Meet-Up Space

PORTSMOUTH - On July 25th, Mike Vine, co-organizer of the Free State Project's PorcFest X, announced on Facebook that the Freecoast is getting its first liberty space this fall, expected to open Sept 1. I spoke with Vine about the new venue, dubbed the Praxeum.

SLN: Who's behind this venture?

Vine: A few partners, all in the Freecoast liberty community, put up the financing to get it rolling. We have a lot of space and hope to make it financially sustainable long term. For now, the partners view it as a combination space for us to do our projects and as a way to give back to the liberty community.

SLN: What's your vision for the venue?

Vine: My vision is to have a flexible use space for liberty-oriented people. It can serve as a co-working space for freelancers. It can be a classroom... a space for private events... a hangout for the local liberty community.

Ratification in New Hampshire

Constitutional Convention 1787

In 1787, when asked about his opinion of the Philadelphia constitutional proceedings happening in secret, Patrick Henry famously replied, “I smell a rat!” Henry opposed the proposed Constitution because he feared it would centralize power in a strong national government. This put Henry at odds with the Federalists, who viewed the existing Articles of Confederation as an insufficient yoke to bind the several states into “a more perfect union.” But Henry was not alone in his opposition. Many throughout the newly independent states shared his fears. Collectively, they came to be known as Antifederalists, and New Hampshire had a strong contingent.

Economist Covers PorcFest XI

"New Hampshire is a natural stamping-ground for freedom-lovers. It has low taxes, lean bureaucracy and some of the loosest gun laws in America. Grown-ups can ride around without seat-belts or motorcycle helmets. The right to rebel when public liberty is 'manifestly endangered' is enshrined in the state constitution."
