Liberty Forum is put together by the incredible efforts of a team of dedicated volunteers. If you see them around, be sure to thank them for their hard work, and maybe even buy them a beer!
Carolyn A was introduced to the Free State Project in 2010 when she attended her first PorcFest. She became a frequent visitor to New Hampshire, and finally made the move in June 2013. As Transportation Coordinator for Liberty Forum, she is responsible for arranging flights and safe and timely ground transportation for our speakers. This includes communicating any delays and reworking the schedule as necessary. If you are a speaker, and you made it to Liberty Forum, it’s thanks to Carolyn. If you didn’t, it’s on Mother Nature!
February 12, 2014 – Nashua, NH – Today the Free State Project announced additional tickets have been made available for its seventh annual Liberty Forum, New Hampshire’s premiere liberty conference. While Liberty Forum’s main focus is on the national surveillance state and whistleblowers, topics run the gamut from permaculture to crypto-currencies like bitcoin. This four-day conference will be held February 20-23, 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nashua.
Thursday, February 20th events are free and open to the public. The scheduled talks, panels, and even a State House tour, include a welcome by FSP founder Jason Sorens, a talk by Redditor Bruce Fenton on Bitcoin, a talk on “How Money Walks,” a panel discussion on the death penalty, a class on “counterveillance,” and a social media Tweetup. The evening ends with Ignite Nashua, where 19 speakers will give 5-minutes talks to “Enlighten Us, But Make It Quick.”
It's time to get more signers! Thanks to a generous Free State Project supporter, $5 will be donated to the FSP for every verified signer we get between now and the end of Liberty Forum. If you have not signed the pledge yet, now is the time to do so! You know the FSP is your best chance of Liberty in Our Lifetime. We are the largest, most successful, voluntary mass migration liberty movement in the world. No more excuses, this is HAPPENING. Be part of history. If you have already signed up as a participant, what about your liberty-loving friends? Take the time to reach out personally to someone about the FSP today. What about your significant other? In some cases, only one spouse signed the pledge. Ask your partner to sign up too. How about your children who have turned 18 and who love the FSP? Get them to pledge as well. We have also discovered that some eager-beavers are moving without pledging. We are happy you are here, but please make the counter move. Every signer counts.
Liberty Forum is fast approaching. Now in its 7th year, with the theme "Watching the Watchers," Liberty Forum is set to be the biggest and best one yet.
One thing that differentiates the Free State Project’s annual events from other liberty conferences is that we are focused on doing, acting, producing, changing. We don’t just talk about the problems; we work to fix them.
One way to do this is to make fun of the state. And boy, did FSP participant Dan McCall do just that. The owner of Liberty Maniacs made a t-shirt bearing the NSA logo, modified to read "peeping while you're sleeping,” with the slogan "NSA: the only part of the government that actually listens."
The NSA was not amused. They contacted the distributor demanding the product be removed from Zazzle’s site, saying, “Your product contained content which infringes upon the intellectual property rights of National Security Agency.”
The Free State Project’s 7th annual conference’s theme is Watching the Watchers, and includes speeches by political activist Naomi Wolf, NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake and his attorney Jesselyn Radack, open-source 3D-printing gun activist Cody Wilson, and co-founder and executive director of the Freedom of the Press Foundation Trevor Timm, among others. Today the Free State Project announced the speakers at its seventh annual Liberty Forum, which will highlight political activism, whistleblowers, and solutions to the national security state. This year’s theme: Watching the Watchers. Regarded as one of the most prestigious liberty conferences worldwide, Liberty Forum will be held February 20-23, 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Nashua, and attracts speakers and attendees from across the globe. Buy your tickets now.
If you have moved to New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project, please take a moment to complete this survey before November 25th.
We recently sent this survey via an email to all known movers. If you did not receive that email, we may have lost contact with you, or, may not know that you moved. No need to do anything if you already responded to that email.
Once the survey data has been processed, a mover number will be assigned to you, and you will receive a message from us with your number in the coming weeks.
Once this step has been completed, mover numbers will be automatically assigned going forward. New movers will receive their mover number when they update their status to “moved” online.
Your mover number is a reflection of your commitment to more Liberty in Our Lifetime. The lower your number, the bigger your bragging rights! Whether you are one of the First 1,000 Movers, the next 1,000, or even one of the final movers, you are making history!
The Free State Project, a mass migration movement to concentrate 20,000 liberty activists in New Hampshire is advancing to the finish line with more than 15,000 participants now signed up, with thousands moving ahead of schedule.
October 25, 2013 – Manchester, NH – Today, the Free State Project announced that 15,000 participants have now signed up to move to New Hampshire for more liberty. This mass migration movement aims to concentrate 20,000 liberty activists in the Live Free or Die state. At the current rate of sign-ups, the organization anticipates it will “Trigger the Move” in 2015, three years ahead of schedule.
“Reaching 75% of our goal is a major milestone,” said FSP president, Carla Gericke. “I attribute the acceleration in sign ups to things like the NSA surveillance scandal, the TSA, the NDAA, the PATRIOT Act, Obamacare, unconstitutional gun control legislation, and the unwarranted wars under both Bush and Obama. As America devolves into a police state, well-informed people are seeking safe havens. The FSP offers a proven strategy for individuals who are looking for more liberty within a community of like-minded people.”
Today is the 10th anniversary of the Free State Project's first mover! Since then, more than 1,400 liberty lovers have moved to the Live Free or Die state in search of more Liberty in Our Lifetime. Over the past decade, the FSP has gone from strength to strength, and we stand at the cusp of great things. The sign up rate is accelerating. More movers arrive weekly. As we prepare to Trigger the Move and welcome the next influx of activists, local participants are building liberty friendly institutions and infrastructures. What are you waiting for? The time is nigh. Nigh, I say! Join a growing community of liberty lovers for your best chance at more freedom, and fun!
