Not since the Mormons moved west and Utopians built communities in the 19th century has a single group attempted a migration of this scale.

Not true: The Somalians and Lewiston, Maine.

"How many FSP members actually make the move...is far from clear."

How many? None. That's how many.

The entire thing is a PR fantasy made up out of whole cloth.

No one's moving anywhere. Certainly not 20,000 stoners who don't have the wherewithall to get their sorry butts to New Hampshire.

P.S. They don't have any minivans either. Maybe a couple Volkwagon busses with pictures of Mr. Happy and Monsieur Zig-Zag on them.

NPR treats this like the second coming. Puleeze!

"They don't lack ambition"

Well of course they do.

Take, for example, this piece's poster child Justin Somma.

Does he have a job?

Does he work?

I must have missed it in the piece. Maybe, God bless him, he doesn't need a job

Apparently he has the means to have "already sat through his first three-hour city council committee debate on Keene's parkland," and is "helping a fellow FSP member run for the city council."

Thanks for considering New Hampshire, but we'll do fine with folks who have something constructive and productive to offer our state.

I'll be living in NH in 6 years and three months. I'll have retired from my corporate job and will have become certified to teach middle-school science. It's the perfect place and job for this low-tax, 2nd amendment loving, small "L" libertarian.

My bet is that the growing season is too short, and the climate too cold, to prompt many libertarians to move there. I doubt N.H. be good for much pot growing.
