Glad to RPF has prospered despite all the years of Fedbook. I haven't posted since probably about 2013, but your survival has brought me back. Maybe also the high speed at which the world is beginning to turn. What are your thoughts on this:

which was sparked by this:
which was sparked by, well, me.

One thought would be that a lot will depend on how well or badly Britain does after the Brexit and how successful the "follow up" sovereignty drives are in other parts of Europe.

What a joke

NH is a liberal blue state that Barack Obama won twice in the 2008 and 2012 election.

Can the NH sheeple really be expected to secede?

that would be so awesome of some state actually *does* secede.

NH gave Ron Paul 2nd place in 2012. But this is the whole point: Rather than hand wringing over big national elections or fighting every single Fed intrusion through the state government one at a time...build something that takes advantage of the ugly elections and Fed intrusions. Something that can be projected to grow whenever DC grows and strike at the root if it ever matures. Sure it's tiny now, but will it be smaller or bigger after it gets its first independence type bill or amendment in front of the state house? I doubt that will be much of a problem. How much - or little - world publicity do you think that will spark? Do you think we will grow or shrink as people go batshit trying to attack the concept? At the end of that maybe we have a movement big enough to move on to the next step...passing a bill through committee, then passing it through a legislative branch...then getting it really passed or before the average voters...

This creates a real incentive for Washington to be cautious about everything it's doing, in every state that's doing it. Just accomplishing that might be even better than achieving independence. Plus there are the civic discussions it triggers and (in New Hampshire) the incoming liberty migrants who find out about free state project stuff through NHexit. It's the hail mary pass that gains you yards even if not caught.

I subbed to your youtube channel a few months ago and have enjoyed watching your videos since, just wanted to say that. Welcome back to RPF.

Thanks JCT !

BTW the amount of media coverage of NHexit has been pretty substantial:

I support the peaceful political secession of any group of people. The more localized government is, the better. The more control people have over their destiny, the more responsible they become. Give people liberty and they will take care of themselves and those in need. I don't know about the particulars in this case but I'll support it out of principle.

There are more statists moving into your state than there are free-staters. The free state project is a joke. At some point y'all are going to have to admit this. New England was the wrong choice.
