FSP Attends LP National Convention
For Immediate Release
May 26, 2004
SUBJECT: Free State Project Attends the Libertarian Party National Convention
Atlanta, Georgia The Free State Project (FSP), the hottest and fastest-growing libertarian and liberty-minded group in the country, will attend the Libertarian Party National Convention in Atlanta, Georgia from Thursday May 27th - Monday May 31, 2004 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel, Peachtree Center. In addition to exhibiting at the Conference, Dr. Jason Sorens, Founder of the FSP, Amanda Phillips, President, and Alan R. Weiss, Vice President, will attend and speak at a special breakout session.
The FSP will hold its special breakout session on Saturday, May 29th, 3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. in the Consulate Room of the Marriott Marquis Hotel Convention Center. All are welcome to attend. Special consideration will be granted to the Press for interviews.
The Free State Project is a plan in which 20,000 or more liberty-oriented people will move to New Hampshire, 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 began the migration.
While the FSP itself does not endorse any particular political party or candidate for office, it clearly finds fertile ground amongst the Libertarians attending this convention.
"The Free State Project will gather the energy of liberty-minded people in one small state where we can make a big difference," said FSP President Amanda Phillips. FSP Vice President Alan R. Weiss noted, "Libertarians are famous for reasoned, impassioned arguments for liberty. The FSP is a chance to put those ideas into action."
"We're here to light the beacon for those who want liberty in our lifetime," said FSP Founder Dr. Jason Sorens. "The Free State Project concentrates our resources so we may influence the political process toward liberty in positive ways."
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.
