A worthy effort, but I fear this will simply start to turn the general public against the Free State Project. These are the kind of idiotic regulations we need to fight against, but the whole point of the project was to do it through democracy and the legislative process.
Too late. The FSP was one of the fundamentals (along with the Massh*le ivasion on election day) that turned this formerly conservative state blue. NH now has a Democrat governor (some say almost as smart as Patty Murray), and they added 31 Democrats to the State Legislature. Conservatives that don't have roots in NH should look to the south and west while they can.
Bloody 'ell. This idea is so naiive that words fail Me. Obviously, you have never attempted to utilize such a method at any time whatsoever. If you do, I can assure you that you will be sorely disappointed with the results of such an attempt -if you do indeed decide someday to become something other than an armchair quarterback.
What makes you think that those persons established in positions of 'authority' that are determined to extract a 'license' (read:DOLLARS) from you is going to do anything but obstruct and deny you the ability to perform ANY action without obtaining a 'license' to do it? Not to mention finding more ways to obtain ever increasing numbers of them and fee amounts as well? I am astounded that such naiivite continues to exist in this day and age. I see W.C Fields observations continue to hold true no matter how many years go by.
In order to do it through "democracy," you have to make the general public aware of the ridiculous fact that manicurists are required to undergo a state-approved 300-hour course at a state-approved school and pass a state-administered exam in order to trim and paint other peoples' fingernails for money.
I can assure you that most people are not aware of this, except of course the manicurists themselves. A publicity stunt such as this, with broad coverage in the media providing tens of thousands of dollars worth of free advertising, is a way to attract attention to the issue so that the legislative process can be engaged by more than a handful of individuals.
In the meantime, though, the Board of Cosmetology is protecting New Hampshire from these dangerous threats to the health and safety of its citizens:
