      This letter to the editor is so insane. It is full of lies and slavery is freedom references. This guy needs to get back on his meds. I hope he is doing okay. Surely, though, free staters must be doing something right to inspire this type of laughable hatred? You are welcome to join in on the fun in New Hampshire http://freestateproject.org/join

      Free State Project is ‘destroying my government’
      A look into the mind of a delusional statist

      To the Editor:

      You, my friends, have rights. You have the same rights as anybody else. You have the same rights as any member of the Free State Project (FSP), or legislators sympathetic to that cause. The only difference between you and them is that you care about,

      On October 1, 2013, Mainers felt the sting of a 10 percent increase in the sales to 5.5 percent from 5 percent and 14 percent increase in the Meals and Lodging tax to 8 percent from 7 percent.

      It is well-known that Maine and New Hampshire are polar opposites when it comes to tax policy. In Fiscal Year 2011, Maine has one of the highest tax burdens in the country at 18.5 percent of private sector personal income (6th highest) while New Hampshire has one of the lowest tax burdens at 11.4 percent (49th highest). These 7.1 percentage points represent one of, if not the, largest tax differentials between any two states in the country.

      The close geographic proximity of the two states leads to numerous arbitrage opportunities for Mainers to escape their significantly higher tax burden. The most obvious way is through direct cross-border shopping which we know occurs up and down the Maine-New Hampshire border. Continued...

      Rand Paul will attend three rallies and a PSU College Republican pizza party in New Hampshire on October 16th. All of the details aren't out yet but here is what we know.

      So yeah, Rand is not just endorsing Scott Brown, he is actively campaigning for him.

      Salem is Marilinda Garcia's home town. When Rand Paul spoke at a recent GenOp party in Manchester, Garcia also spoke there. She is a millennial that is endorsed by Justin Amash and Ted Cruz.

      Keene, New Hampshire, Continues Legal Fight Against Free Staters Paying Meters, Speaking to Their Meter Enforcement Agents
      Brian Doherty|Oct. 6, 2014 7:37 pm

      The Keene government will not let this go. Keene still claims that the entire city is a 1st Amendment Free Zone. Reason gets it wrong, also. Keene isn't suing just free staters. Only about half of the people named in the lawsuit are free staters. Only one of the people even does Robinhooding, as far as a know, and he isn't a free stater. The city government knows this. It couldn't care less about the facts.

      The text might be confusing because Brian quotes stuff a couple of times and I didn't bother to fix the formatting. ...

      Opens on Friday
      Directed by Nicholas Mross
      1 hour 36 minutes; not rated

      “The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin” explains what bitcoins are in plain English. It begins with Daniel Mross, a programmer in Pittsburgh who builds computers to “mine” bitcoins, the virtual currency that was introduced in 2009 and, in theory, provides an alternative to the banking system. Bitcoins are managed through a global, peer-verified network rather than a central entity like the Federal Reserve.

      Beyond shots of Mr. Mross grilling burgers and joking about sending his baby to college on bitcoins, this largely optimistic documentary — directed by his brother, Nicholas Mross — explores the wider world of bitcoin entrepreneurship. The idea of a currency without a government ...

      Where Scotland failed, could New Hampshire succeed?
      Jason Sorens, a visiting professor at Dartmouth College and co-founder of the Free State Project, is author of Secessionism: Identity, Interest, and Strategy

      ...a majority of Scots voted against independence from the United Kingdom. Their desire for self-determination, though, is easy to understand: The same impulse motivates present-day demands for federalism and state autonomy in the United States. Over the past decade, for instance, the Free State Project has been drawing libertarians to the relatively libertarian-friendly state of New Hampshire to pursue smaller government.

      Push to tax online sales heats up

      Here is part of the article. According to a survey, the vast majority of the people in NV want everything bought online to be taxed. I was shocked when I saw that. I figured a lot of the people that moved to NV, moved there because they like that NV has low taxes. But almost all of them want to increase taxes on individuals, even poor people? I'm not sure if those survey results are accurate.

      States also are losing sales tax revenue, from $200 million to $680 million per year in Nevada, according to 2012 estimates.

      But that may soon change.

      Liberty Ballot: New Tool for New Hampshire Voters

      SLN: When was Liberty Ballot officially launched?

      LB: Liberty Ballot had a soft launch two weeks before the New Hampshire primary. Dozens of people gave lots of great feedback and some improvements were made to the website. On September 2nd, one week before the New Hampshire primary, Liberty Ballot was presented to the press via a press release.

      Liberty Ballot Press Release

      On the night before the New Hampshire election, many Granite Staters will be asking similar questions. Which candidates support smaller government? Where to vote? When to vote? Voting for liberty can be complicated – make it easy with http://LibertyBallot.com. Click on your town and then click “Get Ballot”. A sample ballot filled out with good candidate recommendations for the contested Republican Primary races will appear. Save the ballot to your phone, bring up the website in the voting booth or even print out a personal copy of the ballot.

      Dozens of grassroots freedom activists completed hundreds of hours of research to make Liberty Ballot a reality. Keep in mind that some of the races have more than one good candidate. In those cases, use Liberty Ballot as a jumping off point for your own research. See the Liberty Ballot FAQ for answers to frequently asked questions.

      Liberty Ballot Contact: libertyinthegranitestate@gmail.com

      SLN: Who is behind Liberty ballot?

      LB: Many New Hampshire liberty activists volunteered to create Liberty Ballot. We have two co-creators, a web developer, a graphic designer and dozens more involved with the recommendations.

      SLN: How is Liberty Ballot being funded?

      LB: Grassroots liberty activists are draining their bank accounts to make it easier for people to vote for liberty!

      SLN: What methodology was used to come up with your recommendations?

      LB: Since the types of races varied from county races to executive and legislative races, it was impossible to use a standardized type of methodology – such as that used by the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance (NHLA). Information from a large variety of groups and people was considered. The Liberty Ballot FAQ has a partial list of the organizations from which we derived information. For example, whenever possible, the NHLA score from the four most recent years a legislator served were averaged together.

      SLN: What are your plans for the future?

      LB: Our next step is to present the liberty recommendations for the general election in November.

      SLN: Is there anything else you’d like our readers to know about Liberty Ballot?

      LB: Please tell your friends about Liberty Ballot. This is the first time this political technology has ever been used. Nationwide, statists are very upset with the New Hampshire liberty community for creating and using this technology to promote liberty candidates. Two years from now, this technology might be copied by statist organizations or even banned. This election might be the only one where liberty candidates have the advantage of this technology all to ourselves. Let’s not waste our one shot.
