FSP News - March 2010
Ten Thousand Participants
The 10,000th person has signed the FSP Statement of Intent. It may be the time, now that we are at the half way point, for all SOI signers to reflect on our reason(s) for signing. Some of us, almost 550 now, could not wait and as "Early Movers" — along with the "Friends of the FSP" who were already in NH — are attempting to lay the corner stone for you to build on when you arrive.
This may be the time to start planning for your move to join us in NH. Contact the FSP, Early Movers, Friends of the FSP or any of media, business, blogs and websites supporting the FSP to help you find your place in NH to settle, work and expand personal freedoms for you and your family.
For the young, where else can you be at this time but at the beginning of a migration for liberty in NH. Those with or wishing for children, where else would you want them to live and thrive but in NH with people who understand self ownership. We middle agers it's time to stop talking and make a stand for what we saw and complained about but did nothing because we thought we were alone. Ah, the elderly, come enjoy your golden years in NH reminding us how it could have been today if people had stood together and said "no" to past encroachments of their liberties.
To the rest of the world's Liberty loving people, it has once been said, if you are looking for freedom go to America. Every country and people's ancestors had come to America looking for freedom. It is now your turn, support the FSP, come to New Hampshire and be with us and make it the new "Land of Liberty" were helping defending your natural rights will be foremost in our priorities.
In April there are going to be LOTS of volunteer opportunities to spread the word about the Free State Project. There are events on April 15th throughout the country... please attend and spread the word about the FSP. Also there is the 2ndAmendment March on DC on April 19th.... and more.
Please email email@example.com for more details on what YOU can do.
This week hundreds of Liberty Lovers will be gathering in Nashua, NH to visit the Free State, meet new people and hear great speakers. Online registration is closed but you can show up and get day passes. See www.freestateproject.org/libertyforum for a list of speakers and more details! You don't want to miss it!
New Item Announcement! Introducing a new book for the FSP store: "Dishonest Money: Financing the Road to Ruin" by Joseph Plummer. This is a very accessible book about the fraudulent state of our money. Written in plain language with easily understood examples. It goes over, clearly, the history and genesis of the fictional reserve, I mean, fractional reserve banking system. It has generous examples of the topics explained; without the use of impenetrable financial jargon (I don't believe the term "aggregate demand" is anywhere in the book :). And best of all is the chapter entitled, "How We Stop Them", showing how it's been stopped before (gotta love that Andrew Jackson), and how we can stop it now. If you were scared away from "The Creature from Jekyll Island" by its 608 pages, or know someone who might be, then consider this an excellent alternative to that and a wonderful introduction to the subject. With liberal quotes from Griffin, and a number from one of my favorites, Murray Rothbard, this book is easy to read and easy to understand. Signed by the author to the FSP, a great book at the right time.
Brian Wright, author of New Pilgrim Chronicles (an early-mover panegyric of the Free State experience) has just completed his major overhaul of The Sacred Nonaggression Principle—inspired around the camp- and bon-fires of FSP Porcupine Festival, 2005—and will present the case for elevating the simple nonaggression principle and moving from verbal to "agoric" (alternative economy) libertarianism at the AltExpo sessions at the 2010 Liberty Forum. He will also have copies of his Don't Throw Mama off the Turnpike booklet, which includes three other fireside tales from "around the bend of the freedom road." One such story is of the first "Free State"- related major victory: the first smoking ban defeat of 2006.
The author has signed each book with the message "Thank you for supporting the Free State Project!" It's a great book at the right time.
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.
