Go to NH. Even if the FSP fails, such a key swing state could use some balancing towards the right. The impact in WY would be far less noticeable or influential.

Well, the effect on the NH primary alone would make a FSP success there an eyebrow-raiser, to be sure. But the numbers balance in Wyoming would mean that the chances of success there would be both more certain and come sooner, and success anywhere will likely get a lot of attention, and hopefully inspire duplication in the second and third locales to come.

1 Corinthians 6:18 Flee fornication.

I prefer to follow the example set for me by the Son of the carpenter from Nazareth and hang around with hookers like Mary Magdalene, even if I don't generally choose to do be one of their clients. They make better neighbors than many clergymen and supposed followers of Christ I could name.

If it's coercion, than it's slavery which is both illegal under the law and immoral to any true libertarian (who value individual choice and not interfearing with the rights of others.)

Not so in this country, where the XII Amendment to the US Constitution did NOT *outlaw slavery,* but rather established it as a governmental monopoly:

Amendment XIII

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Since you are adding folks to your FSP ping list, would you please add me? Thanks.

You're added, 'Sailor. Welcome aboard, and kindly salute the flag on the fantail as you come off the gangplank.

Hey, does that make me a porcupine plankowner?

Point well taken, archy. He even noted this hypocrisy on the part of the Pharisees:

Matthew 11 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, He hath a devil. 19 The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

Thank God He is a friend of sinners

Prostitution is a victimless crime?

Might be so in some circumstances, most assuredly is not in others.

Like gambling, prostitution is usually viewed with suspicion and alarm by government, at least until they can figure out how to efficiently get as big a slice of the proceeds as possible. Then, as with other monopolists, they do their best to drive independent operators and contracters out of that line of business.

Here's a hint for Libertarians moving to New Hampshire or Wyoming.

Stop applauding activist courts when they infringe upon the powers of states and the people who reside in them just because the infringement accords with your ideology.

That go around, come around thing will get you every time.

Here's another: Read Article Three, Paragraf three of the US Constitution very carefully, dust it off and use it. That too could help reduce the propensity of judicial activists to meddle in the nests of others.

Amen.

I have a minister pal who translates *Samaritan* for his flock as *bikers,* Samaria being reasonably distant from his parish's location.

I'd rather go West myself, but if NH is chosen, I can go there without any problem -- but my log cabin and my garage are gonna have the highest "R" rating known to man -- R-150 or somesuch? LOL!

I was in NH in February, 1996, and it was damn cold!

Come to think of it, if we settle in Wyoming or Idaho, I'll need a well insulated log cabin/garage there too! But, a log cabin it will be!

Depending on which Wyoming county you're in, you may find that unfenced land, basements and garages are not taxed, as was the case in the county my Granddad's Homestead Plot was in. Accordingly, he built a 4-car garage over the living quarters in the basement. And while it's an unfenced sqyuare mile, it has the fence from a federal game preserve across the state line for one boundary, and the BNSF railroad tracks for another, and what's saved on taxes can be spent on a hardwired sensor system instead.

I may try something similar if New Hampshire is the pick, depending on how urban/rural a setting I may find myself in there. But I have a few other tricks up my sleeve as well.

A few years back when I was a newspaper transportation columnist, I read one of the tiny legal ads regarding the sale of a portion of railroad right-of-way in our county, got out the plat book, and found a sectuion with some interesting neighbors. I bought it, reinstalled 880 feet of rail on the ties still in place on the roadbed, and parked a surplussed-off caboose and boxcar on it; no property taxes on rolling stock, since technically they weren't *structures*. And I had a tractor for my *locomotive*.

Eventually, the former grain elevator adjoining went up for sale, and I snapped it up. The rail siding there was still in place, and I acquired a couple of switches and more track, which I hooked back up to the section where I was living. I sold off most of the remainin building and structures and had a neat little piece of property at a minimal cost, though kinda linear in nature. But I got to toot my own whistle [actually a Nathan air chime] and ring the bell....

The Class I railroads didn't have much to worry about from my little homebrew operation, as it wasn't quite as long as theirs. But it was just as wide....

I might try something along those lines in the new free state location. I've got a couple of ideas I've not found obvious flaws with yet, and there's only one way to find out for sure....

New Hampshire? New Hampshire??

Isn't that state chock full of liberal DemocRATS? How can you establish freedom in a state full of people that want to control you? Am I missing something here?

You don't let them. It helps if you outnumber them, but superior strategy and tactics can get the job done, especially if you're positioned well and strike suddenly.

And if they get surley about it, superior firepower and fireeffect can hhelp considerably. Let's hope they don't push it to that point.

Cool story. I'm actually from Tampa, and I know a couple of Cubans here who have been threatened and persecuted for their Christian witness under Castro. Can't wait for things to change down there. The economy is going to be HUGE. And hopefully there will be enough reactionary sentiment to propel something of a 'free state' in the aftermath of the collapse.

I like it! Have you any pictures?

I actually went to the WWW after I posted my response to you and checked out garage apartments -- gotta have at least a two car (preferably a four car) garage and a lift.

Think log cabin garage apartment, disguised to look like a two story house (rear garage entrance type thing), heavily insulated!
