PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES MEET FREE STATERS
Nashua, NH - The final day of the 2008 Liberty Forum
started early and featured a presidential debate, sessions on working
with the NH GOP, citizen activism, the constitution, and making the move to
New Hampshire. "Moving liberty forward also means meeting face to face
with the current and future political leaders of our state and the
nation, so we're very happy to have all the candidates at the Forum to
share their message with the Free State Project", said Forum organizer Chris Lawless.
The final day of the Forum saw more than 400 attendees, surpassing last
year's attendance by a third.
The morning featured a two-hour presidential debate among five Libertarian
Party candidates - Daniel Imperato, Michael Jingozian, Alden Link, George
Phillies and Wayne Allyn Root. Questions came from the moderators, the
audience, and each other and covered a full range of issues. The
candidates talked about the conflict in Iraq, taxation, spending, foreign
policy, the environment, infrastructure and the promoting the Libertarian
message. Candidates talked about why they were the best choice, their own
campaign for the nomination, and their plans for the general election should they win the nomination.
The other popular session was a panel made of Free State Project members
who have moved to New Hampshire, highlighting the challenges and successes
of making the move and getting acclimated to their new home. They fielded
questions from the audience of likely movers as well as hearing other
advice from natives who offered to help in any way they could.
The keynote speaker for the closing ceremonies was Congressman Ron Paul,
who drew a capacity crowd of nearly 500 people and dozens of media
outlets in the hotel ballroom. He talked about his campaign and thanked
the hundreds of volunteers in New Hampshire and those who've come to the
state to help the campaign. His speech garnered lots of applause,
particularly his message of a sound monetary policy, bringing the troops
home, cutting spending and returning the GOP back to its conservative
roots. Dr. Paul told the audience that there is no need to give up liberty in order to provide security for America.
The Liberty Forum ran from January 4th through 6th at the Crowne Plaza in Nashua. The Forum featured speakers on a variety of topics ranging from
drug policy to immigration to taxes to the morality of liberty. Full

speaker at the closing ceremonies of the upcoming New Hampshire Liberty Forum in Nashua, NH.
Congressman Paul will cap a full weekend of noteworthy speakers
including Senator John Sununu and Liberty Dollar founder Bernard von
NotHaus. Ron Paul will speak on Sunday afternoon, January 6th.

We are very pleased to have a pro-liberty candidate with rapidly increasing popularity as one of our featured speakers. We think it shows how serious our members are about politics and making better communities, a better state and a better country."
Other presidential campaigns have expressed interest in appearing at the forum, though no speaking times have been confirmed as yet.

November 23, 2007
Concord, NH – Trevor Lyman,
the man behind Ron Paul's record-breaking Nov 5th
bomb” moved last week to Manchester, NH, from Miami, FL. He is the
member of the Free State Project to be located in New Hampshire.
“There is so much work to be done to help steer the course back to liberty. I am happy to be in New Hampshire”, said Mr Lyman. “I am already working on the next big fundraiser to help Ron Paul. In honor of the Boston Tea Party, the event will take place on December 16th.. From the rate of pledges we've seen for this new 'Ron Paul Tea Party', the November 5th event was really just a 'money grenade'. The Tea Party should break even that record.”
The “Tea Party”website is teaparty07.com
Lyman has found himself right at home in the “Live Free or Die” state. “There are so many people here who are true activists”, he said. “It's
not like I moved somewhere new. For me, as a person who wants less
government in my life, moving to New Hampshire feels like I've
finally come home.”
