Not too bad. Now cut it to about half this length, and you'll have something a lot more people will read.
"Not surprisingly, New Hampshire has one of the lowest crime rates in the country and is said to be one of the four safest states in America"
I believe it also has the least minorities. Just a coincidence I guess.
Anyway, how's the job market in NH?

Legal drugs, open borders and Harry Browne.
(Browne after 9/11/2001 was disgusting. So don't expect much attention to anything he says, or every led)
What Joe (#2) said. Not a bad idea, on the whole, but it does look more and more like a pipe dream with each passing year.

(Octavius - You make my heart glad building thus, as if Rome is to be eternal.)
Yet most of those political and philosophical positions are utterly rejected by the mass of Americans. They don't agree with you! Your ideas scare them!
Or maybe you can catch more flies with honey then with vinegar.
Maybe the condescending tone in which such ideas are delivered just grates.
Texas Representative Ron Paul has stated that, "American history, a least in part, is a history of people who don't like being told what to do."
Now take that a step further.

In New Hampshire, by contrast, the right to openly carry personal firearms is enshrined in the state constitution
I believe that you are thinking of Vermont.
I don't have much use for the Free Staters. They have rejected one of their own who is protesting the horrible Kelo decision (see 6th paragraph from the bottom of the article in http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/1496267/posts )

I just wondering when the libertarians will make their own website and get off our conservative website.

Libertarians should pool their money and go to the moon and live by themselves.

Ping! You might be interested in this thread . . .
Count me in. I am retiring to NH in 4 years. Actually 205 weeks and 4 days but who's counting. I will register there as a Libertarian

Save NH Please! I was born there and intend to Return in the next couple of years, don't let it become another sh*thole!
That being said however, I think you Libertarians should just vote within the Republican Party, put up Libertarian leaning candidates in the Primary, win that and when the General Election rolls around, NH's 35% Registered Republicans will vote for the "R".

Just thought you'd be interested in this thread and what your comments are, Mr Libertarian. :)

(Boldness has genius, power and magic in it... Begin it now!)
Says one committed libertarian from another northeastern state, "When all state and local taxes are taken into consideration, along with other mandated expenses such as insurance, I'll save between $50,000 and $75,000 every year after I move to New Hampshire from New Jersey."
I live in NJ. I admire the FSP. But, I'm a homeschooler, and NH homeschool laws are much stricter than NJ's.
Click here for New Hampshire's homeschool law.
Then click here for New Jersey's.
But I wish you all luck. I think you're taking the right course of action by concentrating in one state. I just wish you'd picked someplace warmer. :-) Maybe my family will join you one day. In the meantime, I'll be following the FSP story to see how it works out.
Kinda old, actually - didn't we thrash this out on FR a couple of years ago? Well, never mind - while my politics certainly have libertarian roots I can't help but feel this incremental approach is doomed to futility.
You want to take over a government, take over a government. Begin with a campaign of assassination of public officials, police, and political opponents. Stage an armed takeover of the capitol. Arrest the opposition and place them in camps. Close the border. Mass trials and executions. Anyone not believing in liberty, toleration, and human rights must be ruthlessly exterminated!
Or you could go for reason and building a political consensus. If you want. I guess.
