He was from Houston.
The Free State Project is that group working to get 20,000 liberty-lovers to move to New Hampshire and carve out one sphere of Freedom in "Amerika."
New Hampster? Why on earth there?
What's this group about, and how was he killed?
I just learned that Malcolm "Mose" Hastings, a dedicated FSP member and Organizer, has been killed in an accident. Mose was a CPA who advised and assisted FSP Treasurers past and present very capably. He also briefly served as interim Treasurer himself. He was a joy to have around on the Organizers list and to work with.
Prayers go out to his family.
Killed in an accident.
Shh. You've taken out all the mystery.
NH does not want the FS!!
They believe in reducing taxes and coercion. One of their strong desires is to limit the power of the federal government in the states by refusing federal mandates enforced by monetary extortion. These exist in many forms, but essentially say "Do what we say, or we will not give back the money we took from you."
It is generally known as "revenue sharing". It is how the federal government has enforced ever more intrusive control over schools, peace officers, collection of citizen data bases, and land use.
We're coming anyway
I have updated my FMCDH sign-off with the addition of (BITS).....Blood In The Streets, which I foresee coming soon, due to the enormous increase of the communist progressive movement being shoved down the throat of this failing REPUBLIC through the Judicial tyranny of fiat law, and the passing of unconstitutional laws by the Legislative and Executive branches of our government.
I thought they wanted to move to one of the Carolinas.
This statement reflects the arrogant, selfish, attitude of most of the liberts. I know.
It seriously makes your mentality WORSE than many libs, and for this you will continue to show the country what true immature LOSERS act like.
IIRC, that was a Christian group. FSP is a small-l libertarian group.
True. "Killed" can mean murdered or fell through an open manhole. By not saying the latter, folks can think it's the former.
Of course, some folks will attribute the open manhole to some conspiracy.
Off topic, Prime, but it is really good to see you here.
At least I don't speak of what I do not understand. Don't be so afraid of a position whose sole tenet is to never initiate force against another. That's the soul of libertarianism.
If we made states collection agents for all federal taxes, we could eliminate the IRS. We'd pay our federal tax liability to our state & our states would then cut a check to the feds...
My state's Dept of Revenue is worse than the IRS in a lot of ways, but I'd still prefer this way to finance the federal government.
