I remember reading about the Free State Project sometime last year. It’s an interesting experiment, where the goal is to get 20,000 people to relocate to a single state, where they then hope to influence the local government to maintain a bastion of liberty. The proposal seems sound.
In the last month, the project has reached the all-important plateau of 5000 members, which resulted in the choice of a state for the project. The selection? New Hampshire was the winner. By 2006, the FSF project hopes to have 20,000 people signed up, and within 5 years of that date, for those 20,000 to have relocated to New Hampshire where they hope to exert their influence on the state government.
Thus far, New Hampshire seems a good choice, and the governor of the state has even chimed in to become a friend of the project. In a state where the motto is Live Free or Die, it seems that the project may be destined for success.
