FSP News - November 2010
NH Election Victories
At least 13 FSP participants were elected to the NH State House of Representatives on November 2nd. This is a tremendous milestone for the Project and its members. Some 20 FSP early movers won Primary Election races and most came out winners in the General Election in a year that favored candidates who stand for lower government spending.
The above winners will be joined by over 100 more newly elected or re-elected pro-liberty State Reps who were endorsed by the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance, a non-partisan, all-volunteer organization dedicated to “Preserving and enhancing New Hampshire’s tradition of liberty.” Nearly one third of the 400-member House is openly on the liberty side of public policy and should edge the state closer to achieving “Liberty in Our Lifetime.”
National Opt Out Day
National Opt Out Day is a campaign to restore an element of privacy to air travel.
From their site:
The goal of National Opt Out Day is (1) to educate the traveling public about airport porno-scanners and the new “enhanced” TSA groping; (2) force positive change on the TSA; and (3) show the airlines our consumer power so that they will lobby the government on our behalf to get the porno-scanners removed. The government has failed us. We’re taking our message of individual privacy and respect for health to the airlines and the public.

People often ask me, "How can I make my Thanksgiving a Free State Project Thanksgiving?" Well, the answer's pretty straight-forward. Start with a nice big turkey. Imagine it there, all brown and glistening in the center of the table. Now take out your custom Buck FSP knife, (which we're almost out of, by the way, in case you don't have one yet) gently remove it from the velvet embrace of it's beautiful wooden box, complete with a laser-engraved FSP logo on it and plunge it deep into that warm, succulent flesh. If you accidentally day-dream for a minute and pretend you're carving up the tax-code while you're cutting - don't worry, little pieces of mangled turkey taste just as good big, wide slices. Before eating the turkey, though, a toast wo uld be appropriate. Raise your glasses high, kept cold, of course, with your PorcFest Koozie, (a real bargain at one dollar) and toast your favorite fighter for freedom, your favorite season in New Hampshire (all available on the Four Seasons of Freedom magnet) and the unquenchable thirst for freedom held by all the liberty-minded in this great country, and around the world. You should probably take off your jacket before digging in, so you don't get gravy and mashed potatoes all over your FSP pin, but don't worry about your FSP t-shirt, they'll wash many times and stay just as true to the cause of Liberty in Our Lifetime. After gorging yourself on the fruits of the free-market, perhaps a little remembrance of the early settlers and how they were saved by acknowledgment of private propert y rights as Henry Hazlitt reminded us. To finish off the event, put an FSP Bookmark in your "Economics in One Lesson" and go outside with one of our Gadsden discs and work off all those extra calories, so you can continue to be a nimble fighter for the cause of freedom.
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.
