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.

They don't lack ambition: Not since the Mormons moved west and Utopians built communities in the 19th century has a single group attempted a migration of this scale. Their goal: Use a concentrated presence to make one of the nation's most fiscally conservative and small-government minded states even more so.

This paragraph is pure hype. The left pushed people to move to Vermont in the 80's. It appears to have been pretty successful. Look who represents Vermont in the House (a self identified socialist, Bernie Sanders) and at Howard Dean. This seems to have a lot of promise.

The Hmong in Missoula, Montana are another such group, a matter of considerable interest to *FSP West* researchers. They're not *quite* libertarians, but treasure their freedom and citizenship particularly.
