I think it will come down to New Hampshire, Maine & Deleware and which of those three can only 20,000 people make a difference. Maine has 2 RINO senators, Delaware has 2 'Rat senators where they could have an effect. Would the strategy be for them to evenly disperse or to take over a particular town? What if these people leave swing states causing them to then swing over to 'Rat? The logic escapes me.

I would take Deleware. Nice place to live and it would drive Joe Biden nuts, he would have start copying Ayn Rand speeches and start delivering them. That would be worth the moving expenses.

Good questions. For the first, they should try to concentrate in a particular area. Maybe not the same town, but perhaps the same county or the same state legislator district so they can at least get somebody elected. For the second, most of the people who sign up for this thing are libertarians and libertarian anarchists who seldom if ever vote Republican to begin with. So we won't be losing any votes by their departure. By contrast, if they do settle in a marginally 'rat state they may provide the electorate with a sizable enough minority to swing what would have otherwise been a two-way contest. In short, I don't think it will hurt anything and it does stand a good chance of picking up a couple of smaller offices with right wing conservative and libertarian candidates if they consolidate - small town mayors, city councils, state legislators, county commissioners and the sort.
already solid conservative Republican. Why?
The FSP is not about winning a state for Republicans, it is about winning a state for libertarians.

(Stalinists, Maoists, Ba'athists, Pacifists: Why are they always on the same side?)
They need to get an "Independents' Day" movement going.
Get all the swings to vote for a non-descriptive Independent for every office. That will get the ball rolling in other states, and could crumble the two-party system in less than two voting cycles.
Our great governor, Craig Benson here in NH, has endorsed the project and will welcome the people who want to make history. Many of us have been doing same for years, that is, saying NO to big government.
