Report lists new pro-liberty NH laws
Are you a policy wonk or aspiring statistician? If so, you will love the 2011 New Hampshire Liberty Related Bills Report. The Report lists the 2011 pro-liberty related bills that are now law in NH. While the FSP does not get involved in politics, some people that moved to NH as part of the FSP are involved in politics. Some of those people were the authors and primary sponsors of some of the pro-liberty bills listed in the Report.
The FSP monthly sign-up statistics are available
Check out the monthly sign-up statistics broken down by the various ways people learn about the FSP. The top reason given so far this year by new FSP participants is John Stossel. The March 24th edition of Stossel's self titled TV show on Fox Business covered the FSP. Thank you John Stossel for being the number one recruit for the FSP so far this year.
4 of the top 50 libertarian websites are based in NH
Action of the Month
Ask three people you know to become a Friend of the Free State Project. A Friend is someone that likes the idea of the FSP. If someone signs up as a Friend, it just means that they like the FSP. There is no commitment for a Friend to move to NH or do anything else.
Some of you may be scared by the idea of asking someone you know to announce that they support your cause, but the reward is more than worth it. You likely know people right now that support liberty. Maybe they have wanted to be a Friend of the FSP for a long time but they were waiting for you to mention it to them. Maybe they didn't know they had the option of just becoming a Friend and not a full-fledged Participant. Give the people you know that option.
Go ahead. Take a chance. Spread the word. Get someone else excited about the FSP and signed up to receive the FSP News, this newsletter, by becoming a Friend of the FSP. Feel free to make suggestions or comments on the FSP Forum.

JobsinNH.com - JobsinNH.com is a great website to help you find a, you guessed it, job in NH. The website is about helping people find jobs in NH. One of the biggest issues with moving to NH is finding a job in NH. Right now is a great time to move to NH. You might want to check it out :)

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

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.
