Right now there are over 5k. If you would bother to read the information plainly laid out on the website, the plan is for 20k. The plan outlined by this 'fantasy' is actually well AHEAD of schedule. Not too shabby for a 'pipe dream'...JFK
Just under, actually, around 4800 last time I checked. It was over 5500 prior to the state selection vote, but some 800 listed NH as an *opt-out* choice indicating that they would NOT be moving there- no big deal, so long as the FSP organizers don't incorrectly figure them as in with the others who are planning on making the move to NH; the FSP has in the past picked up 300 new pledged porcupines in as little as a single week.
But even better, many of those 800 are Western residents or western FSP inclined, and have begun their own *Free West Project* looking at the possibility of mirroring the FSP effort in a Western state or states- Wyoming, the #2 choice in the recent FSP runoff is at present most popular, but Montana and Idaho are very much in contention...and contiguous; most of those Western alternatives already have their own individual discussion groups and existing residents, so they have a good start. It's entirely possible that they'll have porcupine [or other mascot/symbol] enclaves in multiple western locales.
Just think: a return to a love of individual liberty and basic American principles could be breaking out all over....
