The 7th annual Porcupine Freedom Festival is just around the corner. Roger's Campground in Lancaster, New Hampshire is THE place to be June 24th through the 27th If you can make it earlier in the week, all the better! Show up by Tuesday if you want to catch Dale's pancakes, Kate and Alec's ice cream social, and Rocco's talent show. Can't make it until Thursday? Don't worry! You can still catch most of the fun.

Meet blogger, essayist, author, and host of the Freedomain Radio, Stefan Molyneux, at Thursday's opening ceremony. Molyneux will kick off PorcFest with a rousing speech followed by Q&A. Stick around afterwards for the Launch Party, where you'll have the opportunity to meet and mingle with hundreds of liberty-lovers.
Michael Badnarik, stepfather of the Constitution and 2004 Libertarian Party presidential candidate, will be "Lighting the fires of Liberty" with his 8-hour Constitution class on Thursday, 8am to 5pm.

Take the "Adventures in Legal Land" seminar from Marc Stevens. Learn how to write and file legal motions and to effectively cross-examine witnesses.

130+ Reasons to Move to Keene, NH
Since Free State Project movers to New Hampshire are free to live anywhere in the state, some friendly competition has arisen amongst various cities and regions in NH. Recently, activists in Keene, NH have compiled a list of over 130 reasons to move to their city. And remember, these reasons are in addition to the 101 Reasons to move to New Hampshire.

FSP Director Election Results
Congratulations to Rich Goldman for winning the election to fill the open seat on the Free State Project Board of Directors. Results of the vote can be found at the CIVS website.
Since he's not around to argue the point, I'll say Christopher Gadsden would approve of the newly re-stocked Free State Project "Don't Tread on Me" t-shirt. Even if he were to argue the point, I'd just call it a Hopkins flag; that would really tick him off :) The shirt: it's an awesome Gadsden, sorry Esek, flag-inspired look. Instead of that Oh, so scary rattlesnake, there's an FSP Porcupine. It's cute. It's cuddly looking. But you don't want to mess with one. There were some discussions about updating the text as well as the graphic, but when "Don't Walk on Me", "Don't Crush Me", "Don't Quick-step on Me", "You Bad, Away Go Now", "Don't Repress, Tax, Regulate, Interfere, Nag, Coddle, nor Condescend Towards Me", and of course, the modern translation: "Don't F*** With Me" were all voted down, it seemed best to keep the original "Don't Tread on me" line of text. Available now in different sizes. Order yours today, sport it at PorcFest tomorrow (or in June, whatever). This shirt looks great getting photographed at your favorite rally/protest/storming the Bastille event. Show the world your (and you're) FSP!
We also have the popular Puzzle Key Chains back in stock. New Hampshire quarter (er, rather, Treasury token coin), curious puzzle, great message, what's not to love? And they'll even hold your keys together.
(Thanks to Gadsden.info for making it easy for me to name-drop and have it look like I know some history.)
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.
