"Perfect Storm" - FSP, Liberty Forum and New Hampshire Primary.
Every presidential candidate is taking every opportunity to be seen in New Hampshire. The media is swarming into our state. Our country stands at a tipping point:
a nudge in the right direction, at the right place, at the right time,
will change history forever. The right direction is freedom, the key
place is New Hampshire and the time is Jan 3 - thought 8th. The time
has come for true patriots who love freedom to join together, to make
our mark. Please, give generously to the campaign, designed
specifically to take maximum advantage of this once in a lifetime
opportunity! - Irena Goddard
500th Free Stater in NH!
You may have heard of Trevor Lyman, a key man behind the huge 5th of November fundraiser for Ron Paul and other supporting events - he was the 500th Free Stater in New Hampshire! Trevor joins a fast-growing number of Participants in New Hampshire as the 500th - a milestone on our way to thousands of activists in the Free State. As of publication, the number of Porcupine activists that now live in NH and have updated their address is up to 505. Welcome to New Hampshire!
The Ron Paul campaign has brought the FSP new Participants and Friends and has also given us some good media coverage. The FSP and the Liberty Forum were mentioned in this new article in The New American - The Doctor is Calling in New Hampshire. And, New Hampshire comes in first in this new analysis of the Freedom IQ of each state. More FSP media coverage is posted on the FSP Forum, along with NH news. More NH news sources.
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
Action of the Month – Straight Speaking
There’s no hidden message in this month’s “Action of the Month” (Did anyone noticed it last month? :). Instead of some drawn-out, arcane prose, let’s use a simple chart:
Well-meaning, innocent, minding-their-own-business Word
Common usage in the current statist/media vernacular
Common usage by honest, liberty-loving people
Money spent on society to make the world a better place. (Often used in conjunction with the phrase “for the children”)
Tax, i.e. impost, levy, monetary extraction, pay-or-we’ll-throw-you-in-jail
(Keeping in mind, “Society’s” bank account has no number)
Wonderful centers of education, with child-centered administrations, unbiased curricula, and supplied at no cost.
Government School –
1) Fiscal black holes with an ever-expanding event horizon. 2) Union-Controlled works program 3) Puerile Indoctrination centers.
Rarely used. (This would bring too much attention to the fact that, while not destroying or removing words from the dictionary, but by perverting words and collapsing their meanings, they are doing the same thing)
Not applicable (As we all know; ‘Oldthinkers unbellyfeel Ingsoc”. Therefore, Porcs and related beings would probably say something more like “Way wicked cool” :)
The Free State
Contrived, fallacious nickname for the state of Maryland.
Intrinsic, genuine element of the wonderful state of New Hampshire
I’m sure we all could add quite a few words to this list. The
point is to make sure we correct all of the badthinkers (socialists)
when they use a term that clouds the issue or mangles the English
language, twisting it to fit their obviously twisted worldview. Letters
to the editor, polite corrections at the holiday cocktail party, or
screaming out the window that you’re “Mad as hell and not taking it any
longer”, all good ways to help correct the slide towards serfdom. - Phil Denisch
Free State Shooting Match - The Big Bull
The politicking season is heading our way. The candidates will spread out across the country like a plague of locust chewing and jawing their way into our lives and wallets. There's little stopping it (just the Free State Project, of course :). There will also be an attendant swarm of pundits, commentators, bloggers, and prognosticators bloviating their way from one coast t'other. Hunker down in your compound as you may, there is no escape. Like an a'a lava flow of hot smelly, bovine excrement suffocating everything in their path, they're coming. But before we get too depressed, let's have a little fun. An easy shoot this time around, The Big Bull. A single, large bull's-eye, with twenty chances to score a hit. Each shot in the black scores one, maximum score of 20. Categories for pistols and rifles (scoped and un). - Phil
Bringing in the new year with a new item. If all goes well, we'll have a new item for sale at the New Hampshire Liberty Forum. Silicone wrist bands in small, medium, and large sizes. They're easy to wear all day long and oh, so fashionable. Be prepared with a clever answer when someone asks, "Hey, what's that really cool-looking wristband you're wearing?". It's a great way to get the conversation going. We'll have them on the merchandise page after the NHLF. But that's no excuse for visiting the store now to get all those last-minute gifts and gear for your trip to the Free State and the NHLF - you are going, aren't you? - Phil
