ItsLikeThisToo - Ep 10 - Andre Rosa

For Andre Rosa all the world is a stage, and he intends to perform all over it! Andre, by his own words, ran away to New Hampshire from California in 2011. Andre says he doesn't really do activism in the traditional sense but he's a "liberty guy" and he lives his life and creates his art from this perspective. In this week's episode, Andre talks about his "Drag Queen and Covered Bridges" calendar with its trials and triumphs, his running for State Rep in New Hampshire, and his fun and creative campaign strategies.

Love Free or Die

Last year, early FSP mover and then NH state representative Tim O'Flaherty worked on a bill to decriminalize adultery in New Hampshire, which passed into law in 2014. Tim has since become the Research Director at the NH Liberty Alliance, a non-partisan coalition working to increase individual freedom in New Hampshire. The NHLA does this by monitoring bills in the legislative sessions, and by encouraging private charity, a civil society, and citizen involvement.

Where Real "Lumbersexuals" Roam

Have you heard about the latest hipster fashion trend, "The Lumbersexual"? New Hampshire's largest newspaper, the Union Leader, takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the difference between a "lumbersexual" and a real New Hampshire man. Writes Jack Savage of NH Forest Journal: "Here in New Hampshire, where we all but invented the woodsy, can-do look of a handy, hale and hearty fella, the emergence of the lumbersexual man presents a problem. How do we tell them apart?" Read his "12 tips on how distinguish a real New Hampshire man from the carefully crafted catalog version" here.

Keeping Government Honest

In a Huffington Post article "Four Times Federal Judges Kept the Government Honest in 2014," Evan Bernick of the Institute for Justice covers FSP president, Carla Gericke's 1st Circuit Court of Appeals win against the Town of Weare, NH. "These decisions show how judicial engagement can ensure that the government stays within constitutional bounds. If judges can engage in tough cases requiring fact-sensitive analysis, they can do it in all cases -- and they must, if the courts are to perform their constitutional function and keep the political branches in check. Our rights will remain insecure so long as judicial truth-seeking remains the exception, rather than the rule." Photo credit: Huffington Post, moodboard via Getty Images.

Free Speech Win for NH Parent

Father and liberty lover William Baer was vindicated this week after being arrested and charged with 3 incidents of "disorderly conduct" during a school board hearing earlier this year when he protested the content of a novel distributed by Gilford High School to his 9th grade daughter.

Says The Union Leader: "The dismissal of three disorderly conduct charges against William Baer, a parent who was arrested after unruly conduct at a school board meeting in May, is being seen by some as an important moment in the history of law enforcement and American free speech."

Baer writes of his ordeal and his decision to fight back:

"Since my arrest this past May, my life and the lives of my family have been in disarray. After 7-1/2 months of being pursued by the State of New Hampshire, through the Gilford Police Department and School Board, I am obviously pleased that all charges have been dismissed. Belknap County Judge James Carroll showed me there still is some justice in our system.

Liberty Media Vet Reveals the Secret to Changing Hearts and Minds

Ali Havens is all about "liberty media." In her own words "liberty media is the best way to reach people." This rings true, seeing as Ali discovered the Free State Project through Free Talk Live. "I wanted to move somewhere, where all the libertarians would be." FTL didn't convince her to move though, she was already searching for "towns that have the most libertarians." Once she found out about the Free State Project and New Hampshire's natural "live and let live" spirit, she knew she was all in. Since moving, Ali has been involved in a number of media related projects, most recently being the narrator for the new documentary "101 Reasons to Move to New Hampshire."
