KY Man Walks to NH

SUBJECT: Kentucky Man Walks to New Hampshire for Freedom
On May 23, 2004, Free State Project (FSP) Participant Randall Wolfe set out on a month long, 1,000 mile walk from Kentucky to New Hampshire. Wolfe, a manager at Taco Bell, is one of over 5,700 Participants who have pledged to move to NH as part of the FSP.
The Free State Project is a plan in which 20,000 or more liberty-oriented people will move to NH, where they may work within the political system to reduce the size and scope of government. Participants pledge to work toward a society where the maximum role of civil government is the protection of life, liberty, and property. The FSP recently chose the "Live Free or Die" state as its destination, and the migration has begun.
Just before embarking on his journey, Wolfe, a 20-year-old FSP activist, said, "Whether I make it or not... you can stop the rebel, but not the rebellion." Wolfe left Corbin, KY, on May 23, 2004. His journey will take him through Charleston, WV, and on to Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston. He expects to arrive in NH just in time for the FSP's annual festival in Lancaster, NH, from June 24th through June 27th.
FSP President Amanda Phillips, enthusiastic about Wolfe's walk to NH, said, "Randall is literally voting with his feet. When we have 20,000 activists with Randall's energy and enthusiasm, we will achieve liberty in our lifetime." Phillips plans to walk with Wolfe on the last leg of his journey, and looks forward to crossing the NH border with him.
FSP Founder and Yale political science lecturer Dr. Jason Sorens admires Wolfe's dedication to his ideals. "Randall is an inspiration to all of us. He is helping to make this idea become a reality. We will succeed because our Participants are people of both ideas and action."
The Free State Project, a non-partisan, non-profit organization, currently has 5,700 participants, and is recruiting a total of at least 20,000 to move to New Hampshire.
