The Free State Project (FSP) started with an idea: if 20,000 libertarian activists could all move to one small state with a friendly culture, that would be enough to create true “Liberty In Our Lifetime.” In 2003, New Hampshire was chosen. Since then, more than 16,000 people have signed the Statement of Intent to move when the target is hit – and over 1,600 participants have already made the move.
Today, two of these early movers have released an original documentary on the project, entitled 101 Reasons: Liberty Lives in New Hampshire, now available for free on Youtube.
The film is a love letter from these 21st century pioneers to their newfound home. It is told through the personal stories of fellow FSP participants and interviews with liberty’s leading lights, including investor Peter Schiff, Food Inc.’s Joel Salatin, Patrick Byrne of Overstock.com, Nick Gillespie of Reason Magazine, and several more.
Over the weekend, the Concord Monitor did an in-depth interview with early movers Dan and Carol McGuire, who were both recently re-elected to the state house. "'We have a consistent political philosophy, which is more freedom is better and that government tends to cause more harm than good, sometimes with the best intentions,' he said."

Early movers Cecelia and Shire Dude, producers of "It's Like This Too," a new series highlighting early Free State Project movers, explain what motivated them to move, and what kind of activism they have been involved in since making it to the Shire. Stay tuned for a new episode every Monday on Voices of Liberty: Powered by Ron Paul.
It’s Like This Too, a new video series premiering Monday, November 3rd will focus on early movers of the Free State Project, and will explore what these movers are doing to create Liberty in Our Lifetime.
Based in New Hampshire, movers of the Free State Project are putting into practice a slew of tactics in an effort to advance liberty, and be part of a productive, harmonious, and, most importantly, voluntary community.
In partnership with Voices of Liberty (formerly the Ron Paul Channel), and hosted by early movers Cecelia and Shire Dude, It’s Like This Too will highlight efforts of FSP movers, including, but not limited to, political efforts, alternative education, outreach, efforts to become self-sustaining, and simply living free. The ingenuity that abounds when individuals from all walks of life move to a common location with a shared goal of liberty is both limitless and awe-inspiring; see for yourself.
FSP president, Carla Gericke, recently chatted to Tom Woods about her court victory over the police, growing up in South Africa, and the incredible community of liberty activists in New Hampshire.
