The Concord Monitor recently posted a list of things to do to discover the "real" New Hampshire. Read it here.

One notable, which is true, and which is another reason New Hampshire is a great pro-liberty destination: "16. See in person every major candidate running for president. As soon as one election is over they’ll start showing up campaigning for the next one, even if it’s four years off. A great to place to find them is Lindy’s Diner in Keene, and be sure to try an order of onion rings when you’re there."

FSP Hits 85% of Its 20,000 Goal: On Target to Trigger the Move to New Hampshire

The Free State Project, a mass migration movement to concentrate 20,000 liberty activists in New Hampshire is advancing to the finish line with more than 17,000 participants now signed up. Thousands of activists have and are moving ahead of schedule.

July 24, 2015 (Manchester, NH) – Today, the Free State Project announced that more than 17,000 participants have pledged to move to New Hampshire for more liberty. This mass migration movement aims to concentrate 20,000 liberty activists in the Live Free or Die state.

“Reaching 85% of our goal is a major milestone,” said FSP president, Carla Gericke. “As more people become aware of the problems facing this nation, from things like police militarization and misconduct, to the growing national debt and unfunded liabilities, to the perpetual wars, folks are seeking alternatives and safe havens. The Free State Project offers a working solution for like-minded, well-informed people who are passionate about stopping the erosion of our liberties.”

Welcome to the Freest Place on Earth

Maxim Magazine covers the Porcupine Freedom Festival: "PorcFest is an eight-day party for 1,500 people who don’t want the government in their faces. It's a recruiting tool for the Free State Project, an effort to get thousands of libertarians to move to New Hampshire. It's also a kind of model of a radically free society... This was not just a festival but an experiment in a different way of life." Read the full article HERE.

In the Maxim article, reporter Livia Gershon covers the annual newbie shoot (and shoots a gun herself), various talks and vendors, Free Grafton, the Porcupine Realtor, Cop Block, Muslims 4 Liberty, and Buzz's Big Gay Dance Party. Gershon has covered the Free State Project in the past for Aeon Magazine and Vice.

FedGov: Too Big and Too Distant

FSP founder Jason Sorens, author of "Secessionism," recently spoke to OZY. In "The United States of Secession," Sorens is quoted as saying: "... our current government is 'too big and too distant' for everyday people to influence it, and seceding could restore a balance of power."

PLEASE NOTE: This opinion is based on Sorens' academic research, and is provided for informational purposes only. Secession is not a strategy of the FSP, a 501c3 educational organization. That said, early movers pursue different approaches to Liberty in Our Lifetime, and you will find secessionists amongst FSP participants. Want to learn more?
