Choose New Hampshire, Where Freedom Happens First
If you are a pro-liberty reformer, you are probably… wishing you could be more effective. Whatever your issues and whichever your state, chances are that you have spent a great deal of effort, and seen very little advancement in liberty for it. The Free State Project invites you to join with a community of other pro-liberty people that is large enough to be effective, and focus your reform efforts on New Hampshire.
Whether you are planning a legislative effort, grassroots campaign, meet-up, conference, or public demonstration, you will find an enthusiastic legion of libertarian activists ready to help. By choosing New Hampshire, you will maximize your odds of success. With its small population and live-free-or-die culture, New Hampshire is the ideal place to pioneer reform. New Hampshire offers a variety of benefits, including:
- Ranked consistently among the most livable states.
- Plenty of recreational resources, including mountains, lakes, rivers, forests, and beaches, with year-round tourism being the state’s leading industry.
- With 400 members, the largest state legislature in the US, providing the highest ratio of representation and easy access to politics.
- An existing culture of liberty that will enable you to fight for freedom while already enjoying more, e.g. low regulation and no state sales or income tax!
New Hampshire was the first colony to declare independence from Great Britain, and was one of the original states of the Union. The seal has the optimistic rising sun in the background with a ship in the shipbuilding yard at Portsmouth, supposedly the Raleigh. The Raleigh was first launched in 1776 and was one of the earliest ships of the U.S. Navy.
