    That is silly. This is one of the more restrictive Constitutional Carry laws in the nation. It won't increase crime. The only crime it could increase is if someone doesn't inform police to carrying or carries in ND without a valid license or similar government ID, which is required under the new law.

    It was signed into law tonight! There are only 4 issues with the new law. -You have a duty to notify the police when stopped (like in Maine) -You have to have had a state government ID for at least 1 year before the new law applies to you (never heard of something like this before) but it could limit youth and minor criminals from being allowed to CC. Also, if you believe liberals, it will also limit black people, poor people, and the elderly, but that's a huge stretch. -You have to carry a valid state government issued ID with you if you carry concealed or photos of the front and back on a mobile device that you let police use to look up your information while they detain you. So if you DL is revoked because you forgot to pay a speeding ticket or something, you no longer have Constitutional Carry privileges. -It appears to have an age restriction. This is even being reported by the media, those the law doesn't specifically say it. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/north-dakota/articles/2017-03-23/gov-burgum-signs-concealed-carry-bill-into-law Anyway, great news overall. The governor signed it very quickly. According to the above article, the new law starts in August :)

    NH now has great home school laws as do many states. As far as I know, though, NH is still the only state with a program set-up to reimburse parents their home school expenses. Though, not all parents qualify for it. TN had much worse homeschooling laws when I was a kid. I have no idea what they are like now. NH has the best weapons laws in the nation. Border state VT has the 2nd best Constitutional Carry law in the nation, only after NH. NH is designed to allow people to have as much or as little tax burden as they want. Unlike almost every other state that either has a high general sales tax, high personal income tax, or some combination of the two, NH has neither. You can literally avoid almost all state and local taxes in NH if you really want to do so. Of course, just like in other states, most voters demand government services. In some NH communities voters want services on par with the average state. To accomplish this property taxes have to be very high. In towns where voters want the government to do less than in most of the country, property taxes are high. Then there are those communities filled with small government folks that want the government to do far less in their community than what it does in almost all of the county. Those communities have average, low, or even no property taxes. But property values vary widely even within towns. This makes a much bigger difference in the Northeast than in the flyover states. Typically, if you live on the ocean, a lake, or beach, your property is worth more. If you live in trailer park, the woods, or one of the few depressed areas, your property is worth less. Another option is to rent an apartment. Units all over the largest city in NH range from $1,000 to $1,400 for a 3-4 bd. You can find rent lower in most rural areas if you look very hard. That means no income, no sales, and no property taxes. People born in NH might not always think about tax strategies, but those purposely moving here can get it. You very likely can pay less taxes and still have an excellent job living in any state other than AK, where the economy is doing poorly and the cost of living is extremely high.

    UT already has a high smoking age. It is a pretty decent state when it comes to business regulations (except for companies involving smoking or drinking) but the people there sound like the fun police. Yup, the people there are as anti-fun as the people in ID, but they are worse than average. https://www.freedominthe50states.org/personal/utah #33 (1 is best)

    This is a clear case of judicial activism by leftist judges. The intent and text of the law is clear and easy to understand. A terrible ruling. The upside is that instead of focusing on actually legislation, most of which is harmful to people, the legislators of Maine might spend the next several years in big debates over technical corrections to most of Maine's laws. Of course, I'm only dreaming about this possible upside :( :toady:

    The far right party took 2nd place, while the center-right party in control took 1st place again. The former 2nd place party, a center-left party, was badly damaged. The right went from a minority of the seats, though some of the right and left were able to form a combined government, to a straight-up majority of the seats. Likely, the leader of the center-right largest party will stay in power and the body will move to the right on policy. Likely good news for almost everyone in that nation.

    I guess his point is that cars aren't likely to get less mpg. If anything, they will still continue to improve, getting more mpg under what was hinted at as Trump's plan. I guess your point is that sure cars are likely to get around the same or more mpg under what was hinted at as Trump's plan, but the improvements in mpg will take longer under Trump than what Obama wanted. You may have shortened that to mean dirtier? I think it is just a misunderstanding on both of your parts, but I have to guess at what you saying but it is a little confusing :)

    March is the major month for local elections in New Hampshire. Deliberative sessions, town meetings, and town elections happen throughout the month. Tuesday, March 14th is the biggest voting day of the season. Please figure out if your town or school district voters this week, next, or at some point in the spring. Vote for the smaller government candidates. Voting down new spending is usually the way to go. Good luck and please spread the word. I'm looking forward say no to the government :)

    While someone is a bad neighbor to be loud in a shed at that time of day, it isn't and should be illegal. Sure, she likely shouldn't have done that, but it wasn't wrong. The police shouldn't even have brought the dog. In fact, there should not be police dogs. The whole program is crazy. So yeah, the police should give the lady 10s of thousands and close the dog program.

    90% of the state house members that voted today (318-36), voted for HB 640 which would decriminalize possession of up to an ounce of cannabis. That's not bad. Out of the 400 member body, only around 36 of them are opposed to common sense on this issue. That is a 9 to 1 vote in favor. Last year the vote was only 5 to 1 in the NH House. Unfortunately, last year we had Democrat Governor Maggie Hassan. She got the Democrat senators to kill the people because she hates freedom. NH voters punished her by forcing her to live in a swamp :) Now we have a Republican governor that campaigned on decriminalizing cannabis so the NH Senate should be more friendly. But hey, it is never to early to contract you senator. Senator look up http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/Senate/members/wml.aspx

    Exactly. There is no comparing at all. The same thing happens with auto insurance, as it should if insurance companies want it. The government isn't enforcing companies to do this. Ideally, obviously, companies should be able to charge as much as the market will bear for this. That's why I support this, as a min. It isn't pro-liberty enough, but it is certainly something we can all agree on, as a min.

    I agree with you on this and everyone else here. Either allowing extra charges for people with pre-existing conditions or allowing insurers to charge people 30 percent higher premiums if they have a gap in coverage is a must, at a minimum. This is a great start, but obviously could be much more free market.

    I spoke with the person in charge of placing the ad a couple weeks ago. He said we only paid for the ad for a certain amount of time and that amount of time expired.

    I guess the ad is a free bonus to the FSP. I'm not going to complain about the generosity of Josh or whomever is in charge of this site. Heck, even the defunct site, http://www.freedomatlas.org/ , has an ad up right now.

Who plans on joining the Free State Project in New Hampshire this year?

by Crotale on 03-25-2012 at 10:43 AM
Never forget the legendary quote: "It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds."

That is what the Free State Project is trying to achieve.

It's not 20,000 people. It's 20,000 activists. Those that are moving are working together to actively shape the political landscape for freedom. One activist is worth a hundred apolitical, apathetic, disinterested citizens. When actvists pool

We need to create a website that compiles and vets liberty candidates

by Crotale on 03-10-2012 at 01:57 PM
I believe that RPF members need to brainstorm ideas for a website which features all liberty orientated candidates running at all levels.

There is a huge question mark over the future of the R3VOLUTION once Ron Paul retires. Unfortunately, that could be soon if he we don't win the GOP nomination. Even if Ron Paul does become president, the liberty movement will still have a long way to go. We need as many Ron Paul Republicans, Cleeveland Democrats and Libertarian Party candidates
