Free State Project Reaches Membership Milestone
September 3, 2002 The Free State Project, a plan in which
20,000 or more liberty-oriented people will move to a single state
of the U.S. to secure there a free society, this week reached an
exciting milestone of 1000 members.
Since the FSP's founding in September of 2001, over one
thousand people have decided that this route represents the
most viable strategy toward the creation of a free state.
According to Jason Sorens, the project's founder, "This exciting
milestone is a confirmation that we have a feasible solution that
resonates with the politically disaffected."
The membership numbers over the past year indicate that the
project will meet its self-imposed deadline of September 2006
for the beginning of the move. The Free State Project has grown
on average 25% each month; at this rate, the ultimate goal of
20,000 will be reached by the middle of 2003. As long as the
membership continues to grow by at least 10% each month, the
Project will reach its goal by early 2005 at the latest.
The Free State Project, recently endorsed by respected
economist Walter E. Williams in a widely syndicated column, is a
new strategy for freedom. Founded by Jason Sorens, a Yale
doctoral student in Political science, the Free State Project aims
at liberty in a single state. The FSP membership favors cuts in
state taxes and elimination of wasteful state government
programs, an end to collaboration between state and federal law
enforcement officials in enforcing federal drug and gun laws, the
privatization of utilities, and the abolition of inefficient regulations
