    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...

    A libertarian movement promoting "minimalist government", the free market, drugs, prostitution and gun ownership plans to infiltrate New Hampshire to create a breakaway American regime, its leaders will announce today. The Free State Project, which has supporters in the UK and worldwide, will reveal today at a meeting in New York that its members have voted for the small but highly-symbolic north-eastern state as its target to win power. Project chiefs will now try to persuade 20,000 people to move to New Hampshire and sway the electorate towards blocking federal "nanny" laws and social restrictions. Jason Sorens, a lecturer in...

    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...

    Ready to vote with their feet Originally published October 1, 2003 THIS CENTURY'S first potential large-scale political experiment takes its next baby-step today. The 5,400-some folks in the Free State Project will find out which of 10 low-population U.S. states their majority picked to conquer by persuasion. If the Free Staters can swell their ranks to more than 20,000 by 2006, all have pledged to move in (but not live together) across the favored state by 2011. The goal for this small-government-loving cadre is classically American: to get their voices heard by tipping the political scales in their favor. Active...

    Debra Ricketts would trade life in Henderson for a home on the range in Wyoming, Montana or Idaho. She could be lured to the mountains of Vermont or New Hampshire, the wilds of Alaska, the Maine backwoods, Delaware's river country or the plains of either Dakota. By September, Ricketts and other Free State Project members will choose where their moving vans will be headed to start a statewide, Libertarian-leaning community. "It's a big commitment for a better lifestyle and a quality of life that means a lot to me," said Ricketts, a computer information systems manager and treasurer of the...
