- FSP News - May 2010 PorcFest 2010
The 7th annual Porcupine Freedom Festival is just around the corner.
Roger's Campground <http://www.rogerscampground.com/> in Lancaster, New
Hampshire is THE place to be June 24th through the 27th If you can make
it earlier in the week, all the better! Show up by Tuesday if you want
to catch Dale's pancakes, Kate and Alec's ice cream social, and Rocco's
talent show. Can't make it until Thursday? Don't worry! You can still
catch most of the fun. Check out the PorcFest Website
<http://freestateproject.org/news/festival> for a schedule of events
and start planning your weekend in the Free State.
Meet blogger, essayist, author, and host of the Freedomain Radio, Stefan
Molyneux, at Thursday's opening ceremony. Molyneux will kick off
PorcFest with a rousing speech followed by Q&A. Stick around afterwards
for the Launch Party, where you'll have the opportunity to meet and
mingle with hundreds of liberty-lovers.
Michael Badnarik, stepfather of the Constitution and 2004 Libertarian
Party presidential candidate, will be "Lighting the fires of Liberty"
with his 8-hour Constitution class on Thursday, 8am to 5pm. The course
is $100 and includes a copy of his book Good to be King. Act NOW
<http://porcfest10.eventbrite.com/> if you want to attend because space

Take the "Adventures in Legal Land" seminar from Marc Stevens. Learn how
to write and file legal motions and to effectively cross-examine
witnesses. Discover the nature of government and "due process"
procedures. Learn why focing on a witness's competency and the facts is
more effective than raising legal arguments. This 8-hour, $70 seminar is
scheduled for Friday from 8am to 5pm. Space is limited, so register
TODAY <http://porcfest10.eventbrite.com/> .

Interview with FSP President Varrin Swearingen

together. See more FSP related videos on our YouTube channel
130+ Reasons to Move to Keene, NH
Since Free State Project movers to New Hampshire are free to live
anywhere in the state, some friendly competition has arisen amongst
various cities and regions in NH. Recently, activists in Keene, NH have
compiled a list of over 130 reasons
<http://freekeene.com/reasons-to-move-to-keene/> to move to their city.
And remember, these reasons are in addition to the 101 Reasons to move
to New Hampshire <http://www.freestateproject.org/101Reasons> .
Free State Project discussed on Freedom Watch
On the April 13th edition of Freedom Watch, Walter Williams and Andrew
Napolitano talk about the FSP. Walter Williams is an early endorser of
the project <http://freestateproject.org/about/endorsements#ww> and
Andrew Napolitano spoke at the FSP's NH Liberty Forum
<http://www.freestateproject.org/libertyforum> . Video of the discussion
is available here <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsCBiitIbGk#t=3m5s> .
FSP Director Election Results
Congratulations to Rich Goldman for winning the election to fill the
open seat on the Free State Project Board of Directors. Results of the
vote can be found at the CIVS
Since he's not around to argue the point, I'll say Christopher Gadsden
would approve of the newly re-stocked Free State Project "Don't Tread on
Me" t-shirt. Even if he were to argue the point, I'd just call it a
Hopkins flag; that would really tick him off :) The shirt: it's an
awesome Gadsden, sorry Esek, flag-inspired look. Instead of that Oh, so
scary rattlesnake, there's an FSP Porcupine. It's cute. It's cuddly
looking. But you don't want to mess with one. There were some
discussions about updating the text as well as the graphic, but when
"Don't Walk on Me", "Don't Crush Me", "Don't Quick-step on Me", "You
Bad, Away Go Now", "Don't Repress, Tax, Regulate, Interfere, Nag,
Coddle, nor Condescend Towards Me", and of course, the modern
translation: "Don't F*** With Me" were all voted down, it seemed best to
keep the original "Don't Tread on me" line of text. Available now in
different sizes. Order yours today, sport it at PorcFest tomorrow (or in
June, whatever). This shirt looks great getting photographed at your
favorite rally/protest/storming the Bastille event. Show the world your
(and you're) FSP!
We also have the popular Puzzle Key Chains back in stock. New Hampshire
quarter (er, rather, Treasury token coin), curious puzzle, great
message, what's not to love? And they'll even hold your keys together.
(Thanks to Gadsden.info for making it easy for me to name-drop and have
it look like I know some history.)
<http://freestateproject.org/> The Free State Project is an effort to
recruit 20,000 liberty-loving people to move to New Hampshire. We are
looking for neighborly, productive, tolerant folks from all walks of
life, of all ages, creeds, and colors who agree to the political
philosophy expressed in our Statement of Intent, that government exists
at most to protect people's rights, and should neither provide for
people nor punish them for activities that interfere with no one else.

The Free State Project (FSP) is an effort to recruit 20,000 pro-liberty
activists to move to New Hampshire, where they will exert the fullest
practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the maximum
role of government is the protection of life, liberty and property. The
work of creating and sustaining such a society in New Hampshire is the
job of residents, including project participants, not the Free State
The FSP does not endorse any specific changes to government or
strategies to achieve them. The FSP does not take positions on issues,
candidates, legislation, places to move within New Hampshire, tactics or
methods of action. The one stipulation the FSP does make is that people
who promote violence, racial hatred, or bigotry are not welcome.
Reporting by the FSP on participant activity or NH events on the
website, in the newsletter, or in any other place does not represent
support or endorsement and may not portray the diversity of opinions and
activities that exists among participants.
