Many notable people in the Liberty Community have endorsed the Free State Project, and some are even signed up as Participants. If you know of an endorsement to add, let us know.
"I endorse the Free State Project because it represents what America was and what it is returning to once again. The Free Staters are the kind of people who our Founding Fathers represented. They are the blood and guts people who risked everything to found our great country. They are the people who are showing the way back to the basic values upon which our country was founded. I am proud to be associated with such a head turning group of real Americans and am honored that so many Free Staters use the Liberty Dollar as their currency of choice. We chose, therefore we are free! Go FSP! GO!"
Bernard von NotHaus is one of the world's foremost experts on private currencies and alternative economics. He is the author of The Liberty Dollar SOLUTION and Bernard's Law: "When the people own the money they control the government. When the government owns the money, it controls the people."
"America's Founders warned future generations that preserving liberty would require eternal vigilance because liberty is never 'automatic' or 'guaranteed.' In an innovative, take-charge, grassroots fashion, the vigilant citizens who have formed the Free State Project are doing their part to show the world that liberty works. The Project's hallmarks exemplify the best of the American spirit: individual initiative, voluntarism, civil society, responsible activism, and peaceful exchange. What the Free Project seeks to do for New Hampshire is precisely what the Founders intended for America: to make it a model for the world."
"I just got back from the First Annual Porcupine Freedom Festival. I had a blast, and wanted you to know how much I appreciated the experience. The energy, enthusiasm, and excitement of the people there was awe-inspiring. Keep your eyes on the Free State, folks; it is going to be a lot of fun in these parts over the next few years."
Jeff Jordan is a New Hampshire resident.
"Over 40 years ago I became interested in learning about liberty, freedom, limited government and advancing a more civil (vs. political) society. About 20 years ago I figured out that I was pretty much a classical liberal or libertarian and began supporting and working with various organizations that shared my views and objectives. I recently learned about the Free State Project and the possibility of liberty in our lifetime and I thought – that's a very reasonable, peaceful and sensible way to demonstrate the benefits of a free society for all. So I've signed up to participate in this grand undertaking in New Hampshire and my wife, Rebecca, and I encourage one and all like-minded freedom-lovers to join us in the great Free State Project."
"The Free State Project has put the words 'libertarian' and 'movement' back together again, for the first time in something like thirty years, and I am more personally grateful than I can adequately express, because it is the Free State Project that stands the greatest chance, in my opinion, consistent with my understanding of history and human nature, of transforming the fictional worlds of freedom, adventure, and romance I have created in my novels into a reality. "I send the Free State Movement and everyone in it my personal best regards. I look forward to calling them my friends, my allies, my comrades for the rest of my life."

"The Libertarian Party of Alabama endorses the Free State Project as an alternate, but also complimentary strategy to the LP strategic plan of bringing about a free, peaceful, and prosperous society that is based on individual liberty, economic freedom, and limited government."
Mike Rster, Administrator – Libertarian Party of Alabama.
The Republican Liberty Caucus Board unanimously approved this FSP endorsement:
"The Republican Liberty Caucus endorses and supports the objective of the Free State Project (FSP), 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."
Bill Westmiller RLC [National] Secretary
"Our country has a new opportunity, an opportunity for Americans to pack up their bags, move to the 'Live Free or Die' State of New Hampshire, and make it even better and more free than it is now. The Free State Project offers us all a wonder prospect. I encourage my fellow Libertarians and all freedom-loving Americans to consider joining the Free State Project."
