A Taste of Porcfest
We see the embattled rebels, sheltered from the freezing rain and
howling winds in the basement of their crenelated hideout. A valiant
group of freedom-fighters, with the fire of truth blazing in their
eyes and a raging inferno of justice burning in their gut, fueling
their struggle for the American Way. The crackling fire paints their
shadows on the wall, making black, empty sections in the brick wall,
mirroring the empty families and incomplete cliques created by their
choice to defend the freedom of all by risking their own. "It's time",
one of them says and they huddle closer together. The static coming
from the small radio brings them hope. The outside world does exist,
there is more than just this struggle, there are those who are not
hip-deep in mud and blood every day. They have help, they have
friends, they indeed have hope that one day the struggle will be over.
That the warm sun of liberty will shine on everyone, and everyone can
get back to living their own lives. Lives without a boot on their
neck, a hand in their purse, nor an eye - everywhere. "They're
starting the broadcast". All ears bend towards the speaker as they
listen for news, instructions, or a call for help. "Bzzt, bzzt, and
now a message for the remnant underground:" "The cows go west, the
cows go west"; "Tiffany is lost, Tiffany is lost"; "White roses bloom
in red hats", "White roses bloom in red hats"; "The FSP Store has
great items", "The FSP Store has great items"; "Older PorcFest shirts
are dirt cheap", "Older PorcFest shirts are dirt cheap", "Over thirty
items for sale", "Over thirty items for sale"; "The porcupine is
free", "The porcupine is free". "Bzzt, Bzzt that's all the news for
now to our brave patriots, braving storms and risking life and limb,
we close now as always: May your sights be true, your path be clear,
and may we all have Liberty in Our Lifetime - station PORC signing
The "Free State Audi A4" finds a new home abroad...
by Brian Wright
Don't Throw Mama off the Turnpike: Brian Wright, early mover and author of New Pilgrim Chronicles—a diary of his Free State experience—has just published/posted another road story, in which he travels with his mother ("Mama Bear") to sell his prized "Free State Audi A4," the vehicle that brought him to New Hampshire as an early mover in 2005. Pamphlet copies of the humor piece will be available courtesy Dan Stuart at the Freedom Rally, August 21.
"Don't Throw Mama off the Turnpike" has been posted on Wright's Coffee Coaster site. It is several pages long, but can be downloaded and printed for free as a PDF file here.
The Free State Project is an effort to recruit 20,000 liberty-loving people to move to New Hampshire. We are looking for neighborly, productive, tolerant folks from all walks of life, of all ages, creeds, and colors who agree to the political philosophy expressed in our Statement of Intent, that government exists at most to protect people's rights, and should neither provide for people nor punish them for activities that interfere with no one else. freestateproject.org
In New Hampshire
Open Carry at (or rather, near) a Presidential Rally
FSP participant William Kostric raised quite a ruckus by openly carrying a sidearm near a place where the president would soon hold a town hall meeting. Kostric's actions were both legal and nonviolent. Regardless of those truths, the media went a bit nuts.CBS Inside Edition short article

The Free State Project (FSP) is an effort to recruit 20,000 pro-liberty activists to move to New Hampshire, where they will exert the fullest practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the maximum role of government is the protection of life, liberty and property. The work of creating and sustaining such a society in New Hampshire is the job of residents, including project participants, not the Free State Project itself.
The FSP does not endorse any specific changes to government or strategies to achieve them. The FSP does not take positions on issues, candidates, legislation, places to move within New Hampshire, tactics or methods of action. The one stipulation the FSP does make is that people who promote violence, racial hatred, or bigotry are not welcome.
Reporting by the FSP on participant activity or NH events on the website, in the newsletter, or in any other place does not represent support or endorsement and may not portray the diversity of opinions and activities that exists among participants.
