From Freedom Outpost: "In Obama's America, it can seem like freedom and limited government are a thing of the past. With a ballooning federal deficit, religious freedom under fire, and the Constitution treated as a joke, it's hard to find good news for our great country. Hard, but not impossible. Thankfully, there's hope, in the form of a determined group of conservative activists that's growing by the day: the Free State Project." Read more...
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 1,674 participants have already made the move!
This week, two of these early movers released an original documentary on the project – 101 Reasons: Liberty Lives in New Hampshire, available for free on Youtube. Click the video above to watch right now.
Like the FSP itself, this film started with a man and a vision. Director Vince Perfetto wanted to figure out how he could adapt a famous outreach pamphlet, “101 Reasons to Move to New Hampshire,” into a feature film. He enlisted the help of filmmaker Beau Davis, and the two began recording personal stories from FSP participants and perspectives on this historic project from liberty’s leading lights, including Ron Paul’s former Economic Adviser Peter Schiff, Food Inc.’s Joel Salatin, Patrick Byrne of Overstock.com, Nick Gillespie of Reason Magazine, and several more.
Here is this week's episode of It's Like This Too. We wanted to wait a day to release, so we didn't steal 101 Reason Liberty Lives in New Hampshire's thunder. I really loved doing this interview with Carlos Morales. He's wickedly funny guy, really passionate, and makes some pretty interesting facial expressions. I hope you enjoy watching this episode as much as we had making it!
As always, be sure to show some love to our partners in crime Voices of Liberty!
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.
