      *N.H. project up in smoke*
      By *Boston Herald editorial staff*
      Saturday, February 3, 2007

      *T*hey're just not making libertarians like they used to.
      Three years ago a merry band of these free-thinkers announced the "Free
      State Project," aimed at bringing 20,000 people to live in New Hampshire
      (you know, the "Live Free or Die" state, as it says on the license plates)
      by 2007. The idea was to form a critical mass that could have an important
      influence on public policies.
      But an Associated Press dispatch from Nashua last week reported that the
      5,454 original participants around the country who signed a pledge to move
      have grown to only about 7,500.(You don't have to actually move, it seems,
      until 20,000 pledges have been accumulated and there was no indication of
      how many had already done so.)
      Project director Varrin Swearingen observed, "It can be tough to start
      over," though he believes his savings in taxes moving from California paid
      for the move.
      He did, however, note that members who do live in New Hampshire have
      already made a difference "by lobbying against a measure that would have
      banned smoking in restaurants."
      Could this be a clue to what appears to be the lack of appeal of
      libertarians? Surely not all 7,500 feel this way, but for people not in the
      movement it just might seem unacceptable selfishness to dress up personal
      preference as a matter of principle when exercise of that preference causes
      discomfort, sometimes acute, to many others.
      Smoke in your own house, if you like, but smoking in restaurants used by
      nonsmokers is on a parallel with assaulting them, which, we presume,
      libertarians would not condone.

        Incredible! The astounding ignorance of the basics of libertarianism
        exhibited by the "Boston Herald editorial staff" dazzles me. I console
        myself by hoping that the hatchet job was written by a two year old having a
        tantrum.

          What an idiot, what a socialist presumptive idiot.

          Does he not know that restaurants are owned by private entities? Does he believe that the state has the right to micromanage what legal activities a private interest can permit on its own property?

          The assault is on the business owner who has no option to avoid these law, not the patron who can at his volition patronize or not the business.

          But you all knew that, this fundamental libertarian priniciple.

            My response to the Boston Herald:

            Seriously, what bonehead wrote this?

            http://news.bostonherald.com/editorial/view.bg?articleid=180744&srvc=home

            Sure, I don't smoke, and I think it's great to be able to go out, and not be
            sick the next day, but when I did go out before the smoking ban, I simply
            made the choice not to go to clubs or bars that were too smokey.

            The business owner has no choice but to obey the law. The consumer can make
            their own choices by deciding what businesses to patronize.

            Of course, once you have a smoking ban in place, why not ban fatty foods?
            We did it in NYC. After that, you can ban dancing without a license. We
            did that too. Almost 100 years ago (originally to keep black people in
            their own neighborhoods). And the law is still enforced, not because we're
            racists, but because it generates revenue.

            I hope you enjoy the slippery slope that leads to a police state, while you
            use your freedom of speech to belittle those who are defending it, and your
            other rights as well.

            Furthermore, the fact that people are not jumping up, selling their houses,
            and moving to New Hampshire is no reflection on the appeal of Libertarians
            or the Free State Project. It may just have to do with not wanting to move
            to a frozen shithole like New Hampshire.

                  Subject: Re: [FSP] An example of brilliant reasoning about the FSP from the Boston Herald


                  My response to the Boston Herald:

                  Seriously, what bonehead wrote this?

                  http://news.bostonherald.com/editorial/view.bg?articleid=180744&srvc=home

                  Sure, I don't smoke, and I think it's great to be able to go out, and not be
                  sick the next day, but when I did go out before the smoking ban, I simply
                  made the choice not to go to clubs or bars that were too smokey.

                  The business owner has no choice but to obey the law. The consumer can make
                  their own choices by deciding what businesses to patronize.

                  Of course, once you have a smoking ban in place, why not ban fatty foods?
                  We did it in NYC. After that, you can ban dancing without a license. We
                  did that too. Almost 100 years ago (originally to keep black people in
                  their own neighborhoods). And the law is still enforced, not because we're
                  racists, but because it generates revenue.

                  I hope you enjoy the slippery slope that leads to a police state, while you
                  use your freedom of speech to belittle those who are defending it, and your
                  other rights as well.

                  Furthermore, the fact that people are not jumping up, selling their houses,
                  and moving to New Hampshire is no reflection on the appeal of Libertarians
                  or the Free State Project. It may just have to do with not wanting to move
                  to a frozen shithole like New Hampshire.
