Eddie Free is a voluntaryist. Think of voluntaryists as extreme libertarians.
On principle, Free does not vote -- though he's considered making an exception, in order to cast a ballot for Ron Paul.
The website Fr33 Agents rewards civil disobedience: one point for going to court to support another activist; one point for refusing to take a plea deal; one point for selling lemonade without a license.
Free will get 22 points when he leaves Virginia over the summer to move to New Hampshire, getting him closer to one of the site's prizes, like a video camera. He'll be joining the Free State Project, a whole community devoted to living out the small-state ideal in New Hampshire, itself a state with no seatbelt laws and no sales tax. The group has attracted 1,000 people so far, but aims to grow to 20,000 participants.
He's also recently started putting coins into parking meters that are about to expire. He calls it "Robin Hooding."
