Libertarians checking out N.H.by Associated Press 06/24/03
LANCASTER, N.H. (AP) A group of Libertarians is in New Hampshire this week to see if the state might make a good home for a new national movement.
It's called the Free State Project and the idea is to move 20,000 followers to one state, where they'll work toward reducing the size of government.
Project Vice President Elizabeth McKinstry says they're just trying to get a bunch of people who think the same way, in the same place, and see what happens.
The group is looking for a small state that tends toward fiscal conservatism and social liberalism.
When they find it, group members will run for state offices on a traditional Libertarian platform: no gun-control laws, elimination of taxes and reduction in government spending.
New Hampshire and Wyoming are the strongest contenders among ten states being checked out.
