    For Immediate Release December 18, 2004 SUBJECT: NH residents torch UN flag Liberty lovers from across the Live Free or Die State converged on Keene, New Hampshire today to demonstrate their defiance of the United Nations. Twenty citizens from Keene and as far away as Rochester and Etna joined in opposing the UN by burning multiple UN flags. A promised counter-protest failed to materialize. Various reasons for disgust with the UN drew this group together. Some were there in opposition to UN attempts to ban private gun ownership as was proposed at the 2001 UN Small Arms and Light Weapons...

    A few things stand out about this unprepossessing city. It just broke its own Guinness Book world record for the most lighted jack-o'-lanterns with 28,952. It claims to have the world's widest Main Street. And recently, Keene became the home of Justin Somma, a 26-year-old freelance copywriter from Suffern, N.Y., and a foot soldier in an upstart political movement. That movement, the Free State Project, aims to make all of New Hampshire a laboratory for libertarian politics by recruiting libertarian-leaning people from across the country to move to New Hampshire and throw their collective weight around. Leaders of the project...

    The Union Leader, Manchester, NH ^ | October 6, 2003 | Russ Hoyt
    I AM NEITHER a Socialist or a Democrat, so I welcome the Free Staters — the libertarian-leaning people who want to move here — to New Hampshire. I agree with political pollster Dick Bennett as he is quoted in the Oct. 2 edition of The Union Leader, that they will not all get their own way. However, I must disagree with his opinion that people moving up here from Massachusetts haven't changed things. I feel like I'm living in a suburb of Boston. I was born in Exeter in 1940 and still live there. Before I was old enough to...

    Free State Project will come to N.H. By Shir Haberman shaberman@seacoastonline.com PORTSMOUTH - The vote is in and the porcupines are coming! There is no indication yet how many will come or when they will arrive, but members of the Free State Project - who name themselves after the prickly rodent - voted last month and New Hampshire was the choice of 55 percent of them as the place to settle where they could make the most impact politically. "Our members’ philosophy is that being free and independent is a great way to live, and that government’s maximal role should...
