Free State Project Reaches Membership Milestone
September 3, 2002 – The Free State Project, a plan in which 20,000 or more liberty-oriented people will move to a single state of the U.S. to secure there a free society, this week reached an exciting milestone of 1000 members.
Since the FSP's founding in September of 2001, over one thousand people have decided that this route represents the most viable strategy toward the creation of a free state. According to Jason Sorens, the project’s founder, "This exciting milestone is a confirmation that we have a feasible solution that resonates with the politically disaffected."
The membership numbers over the past year indicate that the project will meet its self-imposed deadline of September 2006 for the beginning of the move. The Free State Project has grown on average 25% each month; at this rate, the ultimate goal of 20,000 will be reached by the middle of 2003. As long as the membership continues to grow by at least 10% each month, the Project will reach its goal by early 2005 at the latest.
The Free State Project, recently endorsed by respected economist Walter E. Williams in a widely syndicated column, is a new strategy for freedom. Founded by Jason Sorens, a Yale doctoral student in Political science, the Free State Project aims at liberty in a single state. The FSP membership favors cuts in state taxes and elimination of wasteful state government programs, an end to collaboration between state and federal law enforcement officials in enforcing federal drug and gun laws, the privatization of utilities, and the abolition of inefficient regulations and monopolies.
