As a result, over 800 people visited our website and around a dozen joined
the Free State Project on the spot. This is in addition to his earlier endorsement in 2002
The Boston Phoenix has published a lengthy article
about the Free State Project. While good on the whole, some important corrections/clarifications are that the FSP is not a Libertarian (Party) organization, we do not intend to "colonize" New Hampshire, movers can live anywhere in the state and there are several popular areas, not just Keene, and four movers have been elected to the NH State House, not just one.
FSP Participant and NH State Representative Cal Pratt is interviewed regarding the FSP and William Kostric. A video report and news article can be found here
FSP Participant and mover Mark Edge, co-host of the syndicated radio show Free Talk Live
discusses with the The Tenth Amendment Center
his take on the Free State Project in New Hampshire as decentralization in practice, moving towards smaller government on a state level, spreading liberty around the country by example, the insanity of violent response to activists by the federal government, the people of New Hampshire as having a streak of individualism and resistance to government encroachments, the state legislature in New Hampshire, liberty-loving lobbyists, the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance
, Free Talk Live’s growing syndication, and more.
