SUBJECT: Libertarian Republicans Endorse Free State Project
Earlier this year, the National Board of the Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) unanimously approved the objective of the Free State Project (FSP) and urged RLC members to support the FSP effort.
FSP President Amanda Phillips welcomed the endorsement. "We're very pleased the Republican Liberty Caucus supports our strategy," Phillips said, adding, "We welcome members from any political party who share our belief that the maximum role of civil government should be the protection of life, liberty and property." Phillips hopes Republicans will show support for liberty at the 2004 Republican National Convention.
William Westmiller, RLC National Secretary, supplied the text of the endorsement: "The Republican Liberty Caucus endorses and supports the objective of the Free State Project, to gather together liberty-lovers in a single political subdivision of the United States, specifically New Hampshire, in order to 'exert the fullest practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the maximum role of civil government is the protection of life, liberty and property.' We urge RLC members to support the FSP effort and work within the Republican Party of New Hampshire to reduce government power by promoting the ideals of individual rights, limited government and free enterprise."
Tim Condon, FSP Director of Member Services, was also appointed the RLC Assistant Charter Director. Condon welcomed RLC members to the FSP, saying, "We encourage everyone who shares these aims to join the Free State Project and join the migration to the Free State New Hampshire to help us achieve Liberty in Our Lifetime."
The Republican Liberty Caucus, Thousand Oaks, Calif., is a grassroots nationwide organization affiliated with the Republican Party. The goal of the RLC is to elect pro-liberty individuals to office. Their website is www.rlc.org.
The non-partisan, non-profit Free State Project (www.freestateproject.org) currently has 6,000 members, and is recruiting a total of at least 20,000 to move to New Hampshire.
