    Montgomery County, Maryland, is one of the wealthiest and most liberal counties in America. If there’s a dumb progressive idea that didn’t start there, it will get there sooner or later. Along those lines, the powers that be in Montgomery County are very concerned about low voter turnout. So concerned, in fact, the all Democrat County Council formed a “Right to Vote” Task Force to come up with ways to encourage more people to vote. The task force produced a 76-page report with more than a few suggestions that could raise a few eyebrows. Recommendations 1-3 are: 1. The Task...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Residents of California's largely rural, agrarian and politically conservative far northern counties long ago got used to feeling ignored in the state Capitol and out of sync with major urban areas. The idea of forming their own state has been a topic among local secession dreamers for more than a century. Residents in two counties will have a chance to voice that sentiment next week. Voters in Del Norte and Tehama, with a combined population of about 91,000, will decide June 3 on an advisory measure that asks each county's board of supervisors to join a...

    Paducah TX. The 32 delegates sat in a smal room around regular tables on metal folding chairs drinking from paper cups from jugs of sweet iced tea and bottles of soda. The speaker stood at the center where a small stage, hastily built from bricks and plywood sat in a clearing. "... as we face the final days of our lives I would like to say I am proud of what I have done. I am proud to be giving my life for the ideals of freedom and liberty. I know we all are, even if we are frightened....

    (Read this article in the original for links to all the events, etc. http://tinyurl.com/8xuvu ) 2005 Year in Review What happened on the Underground (NHFree.com) during the last year By Kat Dillon The New Hampshire Underground is a loose organization of freedom fighters composed mainly of Free State Project (http://freestateproject.org) members who have already made the move to NH. There, these members worked with native New Hampshirites with the encouragement of Freestaters still waiting to make the big move to NH. It is difficult to describe the incredible synergy from amassing so many liberty lovers in one area. The individuals...

    So I'm driving out of town when I see the strangest thing. There's Nat's old Dodge pickup parked at the side of the road. He's roped his battered shooting bench in the bed. And there sits Nat himself with his spotting scope nearby, his deer rifle at the ready, and a six-pack of Moose Drool beer. He's peering over the rifle down the long, empty stretch of road that leads to Hardyville. Naturally, I have to stop and find out what the heck is going on. "Climb up here and spot for me," he says. "Er ... spot what?" "License...

    Many here are familiar with the Free State Project, an attempt to take over a small state politically by supporting classical libertarians (like Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine) and electing them to public office. Then they propose to change the government though legal and constitutional means to basically evict the federal government from that state as well as remove any freedom robbing state and local laws. To do this, people from all over the country are urged to move to New Hampshire and establish a new life there. That is a commendable goal but the outcome is improbable at best...

Wyoming was runner-up in balloting conducted by about 5,000 members of the project around the country, vice president Elizabeth McKinstry said.</p>

    The Free State Project: The Real Deal I remember hearing about the Free State Project back when Jason Sorens was recruiting feedback for the idea. Having heard of plenty of other "let's form our own group" schemes, I smiled, nodded, and pushed the delete key, and expected to hear maybe one or two more things about the project at most. I'm delighted to say that I was wrong. I am not a porcupine -- that's the animal FSPers have fittingly chosen as their mascot. Thus, I'm not an expert or an insider. My interest in the FSP lies in two...

    ... The Free State Project is a plan in which 20,000 or more liberty-oriented people will move to a single state of the U.S. to secure there a free society. We will accomplish this by first reforming state law, opting out of federal mandates, and finally negotiating directly with the federal government for appropriate political autonomy. We will be a community of freedom-loving individuals and families, and create a shining example of liberty for the rest of the nation and the world. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Free State Project is a new strategy for liberty in our lifetime.
