Who can participate?
We welcome all who love liberty. The FSP is not a lockstep movement, requiring all who join to subscribe to a long list of agreements on every point. There is no "Grand Platform." All we ask is that you agree that government's maximum role should be to help individuals defend themselves from force and fraud. We welcome you and support your desire to live peacefully according to your values. We ask only that you support others in their right to do the same.
I love the idea of the FSP, but for practical reasons, I just can't sign the Statement of Intent right now. I still want to be involved. Do you still want me?
Yes! You can still support us by signing up as a Friend of the FSP. We encourage and appreciate your support, participation in social media, assistance in publicity, recruiting, research and all the other work to be done. Be sure to tell a friend about the FSP... You never know where that next signer is!
Supporters from New Hampshire do not count toward the 20,000 participants. People from New Hampshire who signed up before the vote was taken in early 2000 are counted as part of the 20,000, since they originally agreed to move to at least one other state. These participants only number in the low 200s.
Active-duty personnel can select a "home of record." This home of record may be in any state, and you are allowed to vote in that state's elections by absentee ballot. Or you may select New Hampshire as your "state of legal residence," which is the determining factor for income and personal property taxation, voting, and any other legal resident purposes. This new state of legal residence remains in effect until abandoned through the overt act of selecting a different one.
Anyone who promotes violence, racial hatred, or bigotry is not welcome. This is also grounds for the revocation of your Participant status.
Is there an "age limit" to joining? Are retired people welcome? Are there any "good health" requirements?
All are welcome in the FSP. We already have members in a wide range of ages, and encourage those with life experience to join our efforts. We have no health requirements--it's none of our business, and we appreciate any support we get from liberty-lovers in any stage of life. We do ask that you be at least 18 years of age to sign up as a participant.
Anyone who agrees with and signs the following Statement of Intent: I hereby state my solemn intent to move to the state of New Hampshire. Once there, I will 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. Join now.
