Martial Law Stops at the NH Border: An SOF Soldier Looks at the Free State Project
Martial Law Stops at the NH Border: An SOF Soldier Looks at the Free
Everyday the news media screams about the need for martial law,
dissolving Posse Comitatus, putting troops on the street with police
power... is there any place in America that is resisting and even
reversing this trend? Yes, there is and that place is the State of
Denver, CO (PRWeb) October 17, 2005 -- It was the major question on
this reporter's mind. The objective was to canvass a representative
cross section of folks who are members and organizers of the Free
State Project (www.freestateproject.org) and live in the state of New
The opportunity arose on August 5th at a barbeque thrown for
prospective new comers by the State Welcome Wagon Coordinator, Margot
Keyes. There was a great turnout by Free State Project members, a 31
Flavors variety of libertarian iconolasts. There were Christians and
atheists, objectivists and anarchists. Several candidates running for
local office were present and subtly working the crowd for support.
There was a libertarian talk show host and a Libertarian Party member
who'd recently been arrested for protesting a licensing law for
manicurists. The director of the Gun Owners of New Hampshire was
there as well.
These are the kind of people who walk their talk. They've pull up
their stakes, packed up their families and moved across the country
to live in a tiny little burg on the East Coast simply because they
hunger to be FREE! Think about that for a minute people in America
are picking up and moving somewhere else because they want to be
In view of everything going on with the acceleration of draconian
police powers in this country since 9-11, this reporter has been
eager to corner the locals here and pop the question --
if "terrorist" nukes go off in this country in what will amount to
the Mother of all 9-11s, and the White House makes good on its new
love affair with coast-to-coast martial law how will New Hampshire
Will the New Hampshire state legislature play ball? Will they march
lock-step with all the other state governments down the primrose path
to the New World Order? Or will they keep their cools? Will they
refuse to recognize the Feds authority to place New Hampshire under
Which way will this tiny, rascally New England state sway?
Everybody presented with this scenario didn't hesitate to offer their
opinion on what the outcome of such an event would be.
New Hampshire will tell the Federal Government to go pound sand.
The words "freedom" and "America" have become an oxymoron when
combined together for no longer are the one synonymous with the
other. Freedom is a buzzword politicians use to describe a cascading
consolidation into collectivist tyranny that more resembles Orwellian
doublespeak than accurate communication.
This reporter has spent the last 18 months living in Arlington,
Virginia and working in the Pentagon at the Army Operations Center in
support of ONE/OIF/OEF. Any off-time was spent venturing into the
District of Corruption to observe the national monuments, take in the
Smithsonian and quietly...keep an eye on the emerging Total
Honestly, one can't spit in any direction anywhere in this town and
not hit some cop in a Darth Vader uniform toting an MP-5 or a
surveillance camera or both. This point was well illustrated while
sitting on the waterfront in Georgetown with friends from Crisis
Action Team 4, it was early on a Friday evening in June and the sky
was literally swarming overhead with police helicopters -- not Bell
Jet Rangers, no. These cops were flying military Blackhawk
helicopters with "POLICE" in yellow lettering on the tail boom.
This particular waterfront establishment was a very popular gathering
spot for the Beautiful People in D.C. There were several private
yachts tied up to the pier, the money and booze was flowing, the
women looked like extremely high-priced call girls or Hollywood
actresses -- there really isn't a difference anymore. They were all
laughing and they were all completely oblivious to the obvious.
There are surveillance cameras everywhere watching them.
Military hardware was orbiting overhead manned by cops with gunners
standing in the open doors. On the river, extremely high powered
speedboats with POLICE painted prominently on both sides of the hull
race up and down the waterway with cops and machine guns eying
everyone and everything like a target, like raw meat.
And these people on the waterfront, in their trendy clothes and fake
tans, were partying like it was 1999.
The Police State is no longer an event that might transpire in the
near future. It is here now. The Rubicon has been crossed. America is
no longer a free country. America is occupied.
And yet, in the midst of this birthing of the United Police States of
America, surrounded on all sides by bastions of Leftist Commie
Liberalism sits the tiny red-headed stepchild of the East Coast: New
New Hampshire was chosen as the libertarian migration state of choice
out of a ballot numbering 10 states. As of today, there are 6,801
signed on participants who've pledged to actually move to New
Hampshire within 5 years. 384 have already made that move for Liberty
in Our Lifetime.
It's ironic or maybe its destiny, the tendency for things to come
full circle, that the first piece of ground taken and secured again
in the name of Liberty is right smack in the middle of where it all
began 229 years ago, in the heart of New England -- that tiny,
rascally independent state of New Hampshire. A place where the
peoples' right to revolution is enshrined in the state constitution.
A place where the proud tradition of local control in the form of
town hall meetings has continued in an unbroken chain since Colonial
times to the present. A place where the tax collector gets beat like
a gong and run out of the state on a rail. A place where the state
legislature is run by civilians, not career politicians -- paid a
mere $200 a year for their services. That's a pay scale that that
those prostituting traitors in the District of Corruption need to be
saddled with by next Tuesday after lunch.
Just being in New Hampshire was like being zapped to another
universe, a universe where people come and go as they please, do as
they please, where there isn't a cop everywhere one looks and one
isn't under constant surveillance from every street corner. This
reporter stayed in Concord, the state capital, during this quick
visit to meet up with members of the FSP.
This reporter was shocked to visit the State capital building and up
entering wasn't immediately surrounded by black-clad storm troopers
with badges, being forced to empty pockets for search, having one's
body probed with metal detector wands and having line-up pictures
taken for computer biometric comparison to known "enemies of the
State." There were NO metal detectors. NO cops. Just an elderly
retiree security guard who was eager to tell anyone interested about
the unique place the state of New Hampshire occupies in Revolutionary
This reporter proceeded to wander around the capital building,
touring the chambers of the senate and the representatives all
without once being stopped, questioned, photographed or prevented
from proceeding at all. Here, the government is the property of the
people! Imagine that! What a subversive idea!
Try doing that anywhere outside of New Hampshire. But to do that,
you'd have to get into the state capital building first and getting
in without being bodily violated by members of law enforcement would
be like waking up tomorrow and seeing pigs fly.
If you live outside of New Hampshire, you really don't know what
being free feels like.
Everywhere outside of New Hampshire, the police state isn't just
coming. It's already here.
