Lovers of Individual Freedom!
How would you like to live in a place where state laws prohibiting the right to keep and bear arms were abolished, entirely and completely?
Sounds impossible, doesn't it? It's NOT! Several thousand freedom-lovers of all stripes are already signed up and actively planning on moving to a single state in the U.S.A. where individuals of every race, creed, color, religion, national origin, and sexual orientation will be guaranteed the right to live free and unmolested by bloated state government, exploding state bureaucracies, ever-rising state taxes, and the host of unnecessary and unreasonable rules, laws, strictures, mandates, regulations, ordinances, requirements, and statutes that most Americans are today forced by live under. If this vision sounds attractive to you, then let me introduce you to...The Free State Project In the words of its founder, Jason Sorens, a Yale University Ph.D. candidate in political science, "the Free State Project is a plan in which 20,000 or more liberty-oriented people will move to a single state of the U.S., where they may work within the political system to reduce the size and scope of government. The success of the Free State Project would likely entail reductions in burdensome taxation and regulation, reforms in state and local law, an end to federal mandates, and a restoration of constitutional federalism, demonstrating the benefits of liberty to the rest of the nation and the world."
The Free State Project is a new strategy for liberty in our lifetime. We don't want to wait decades for most citizens in the U.S. to realize the benefits of robust individual liberty and the failings of the nanny state. For those of us who already understand the debilitating effects of a government bent on reducing liberty rather than increasing it, the Free State Project aims at liberty in a single state.
What do we mean by "liberty"? Our members' philosophy is that being free and independent is a great way to live, and that government's maximal role should be to defend individuals from force and fraud.
What can activists for liberty do in a single state? A great deal. They could repeal state taxes and wasteful state government programs. They could end collaboration between state and federal law enforcement officials in enforcing unconstitutional laws. They could roll back state gun control and drug prohibition. They could end asset forfeiture and abuses of eminent domain. They could repeal strictures against victimless crimes such as gambling and consensual adult sex. They could privatize utilities and end inefficient regulations and monopolies.
