Mercatus Center Report: NH Freest State in the USA
In its newest report about ranking American states on their public
policies that affect individual freedoms in the economic, social, and
personal spheres, New Hampshire again placed #1. The full report can be
reviewed here <http://mercatus.org/freedom-50-states-2011> . There's
also a video <http://youtu.be/9bQBAkhz_-A> about the report, which
includes Jason Sorens, founder of the Free State Project.
PorcFest is almost here and before you know it, you'll be strolling
through the bucolic pleasantness of Agora Alley. No doubt you'll
come across a most fantastic sight the Free State Project
merchandise site. So many items will be there to enchant you; it will be
hard to choose. Do you take home a cuddly stuffed porcupine? Perhaps
your FSP t-shirt is getting a bit ragged; feel free to size up a new
one. How about that Custom FSP Buck you've been eyeing up for a
while (and you know you have), there aren't too many left; you'd
better get one before they're gone. How about a daily reminder that
"Liberty in Our Lifetime" is on the horizon, a shiny keychain is
just the thing. Brand new, never-before-seen-at-PorcFest reverse car
window decals will be waiting eagerly for your precious caress. Sparkly,
glowing, FSP copper rounds will mesmerize you. Whether you want one in a
clear protective case, or a tube of twenty to trade elsewhere in the
alley (with those who voluntarily accept them, of course), they will be
waiting for you. There'll also be pins and bookmarks and stickers
and flags and, oh, so many more things for you to delight in. So be sure
to perambulate by RV site 15 and take a look at all the wonderful stuff
available, the porc in you will be glad you did.
FSP and Nullify Now! LA
The Los Angeles FSP group held a tabling event at the final stop of the
Nullify Now! tour featuring headlining speaker Thomas E. Woods Jr.
Through historical writings, case studies, and speeches by the Founding
Fathers, more than 10 speakers presented logical, moral, and
constitutionally sound cases for nullification. We want to thank Michael
Boldin and Bryce Shonka of the Tenth Amendment Center for coordinating
the tour and for graciously inviting us to setup a table. FSP LA had
quite a handsome spread of outreach materials, complete with a plush
porcupine that was on the receiving end of some heavy petting. FSP
literature found their way into the hands of dozens of intrigued
conference goers, a good portion of which expressed their interest in
attending our future meetings. Would you like to reach more activists
outside of NH? Start or re-energize a local group near you!
Send the FSP to FreedomFest 2011!
FreedomFest <http://www.freedomfest.com/> is an annual gathering of

Liberty Conspiracy is a seriously educated and yet humorous take on
politics, music and a whole lot more by Gardner Goldsmith
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gardner_Goldsmith> . Liberty Conspiracy
believes in the power of Invisible Hand, in exposing the fallacy of the
Broken Window, in promoting economic and political liberty, and in
freeing the mind to allow for true creative potential.

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.
