Free State Project Moves Forward
For those of you that don't know about the Free State Project, it's a movement to get a whole bunch of (big or small l) Libertarians to one state where they could get enough influence, because of their size, to move that state towards a libertarian society. New Hampshire was chosen after some debate. The figure of 20,000 people moving was the goal. Looks like 100 or so have made the move so far. I still doubt they'll get 20,000 libertarians to move there, even amongst the ones who have said they will move.
Nonetheless, I'd love to see the project be successful and so was pleased to see this news article regarding some Free Staters filing papers for local office and some other Free Staters that have already had some success in winning elections and getting libertarian legislation passed. Looks like they're off to a good start. Kudos and godspeed to the Free Staters in New Hampshire! If I was younger I might well consider moving to New Jersey myself, but due to a number of reasons, looks like I'm trapped here and will likely go down with the sinking ship, the S.S. California.
