Hello out there! My names Kara, and im relatively new to the project. Ive been living in NH for about 2 years now and heard about the Free State Project from a friend. If anyone has any tips for me being a new-comer, they would be very much appreciated! Thanks all. :) pce.
I'm very happy to announce that there is another reason to move to NH.
Sooo, here I am, blogging. I just joined the FSP today. I'm planning to move at the end of this year if all goes as planned. I was originaly going to go to Oregon to start my organic farm/winery, but a lack of taxes and blue laws persueded me to go to NH instead. New Hampshire has a 39 article bill of rights. The New Hampsters must like it alot.
Jason Sorens, an assistant professor at the University of Buffalo, SUNY, specializes in the study of secessionist movements. His dissertation was titled "The Political Economy of Secessionism," and he was the founder of the Free State Project, an effort to convince freedom-loving Americans to move to New Hampshire. (Some 700 have taken the leap so far.)
I remember growing up on the southern border of NH, when it was actually a free state. They had no zoning laws no building codes laws other then those for general safety. So when I moved to NH in 1981 the freedom grabbers already were on the march up to NH. I call these freedom grabbers just that because they come up here to NH from places such as Mass, NJ, NY, MD, Conn.
