Does it have to be in NH?

I think its a little late for that. The people are already there.

They can move again. They jumped the gun.

Free Island Project.

Free Shipping Lanes Project.

Yarr!

The only thing that's keeping the government from cutting our throats right now is that it would have to be done in public (the camera being "the new gun" and all), and the propaganda costs of having to spin us as evil terrorists would be too high.  They could still do it, but we're not worth that much, and that's how a resistance movement can stay alive in plain sight.  (This is even easier to do in New Hampshire, where anti-government activists aren't automatically called racists, Jesus nuts, bootleggers, skinheads, etc).  If, on the other hand, we're easy to spin as a bunch of terrorist pirates, the public won't even flinch as we hit the bottom of the seabed.  :cry:

(See also: my polite and humble disagreement on Drifter's "Boats" thread.)


This applies to the Free Island Project idea too, but to a lesser degree, and it's more compatible with FSP by giving the less-dedicated-more-wealthy fair-weather Free Staters / "snowbirds" a freedom-themed place to vacation if/when New Hampshire winter stops being fun for some reason.  :roll:

The people?

All 400 or so who have actually moved? all the rest where already in New Hampshire.

Also sunk costs.

The free state project has already done something that none of you has. It's signed up 9,800 people. So either Fish for a new project, or cut bait for this one.

If signing shit on the internet meant anything, sites like these would be power houses of change.

I'm not in it for the PR, and the government counldn't find their own arse with both bloody hands anyway.

No, it couldn't, but it can kill a bunch of people trying to resist its tyranny.  :x

Holding on to power and expanding it is the one thing a government has an evolutionary incentive to be competent at.

Good questions.

I'd be OK with NH for the late spring/summer/early fall. The people who want to stay in NH to "hold down the fort" can feel free to do that. They can keep the FSP dream alive if they want to.

But I'd like a secondary place farther south to go in the winter. Some people would probably like to stay there all year long.

But I don't think the goal should be to take over any state. That isn't going to happen.

Sounds good to me.

Hypothetically, how many people would it take?

Fifty percent of the population, plus one.

Need all be participants though? Can't some be convinced of the virtues of liberty?
