    I'd settle in the Live Free or Die state of New Hampshire. Really, it has the most going for it now and certainly the most potential to improve. There is only one major comprehensive report comparing freedom in the 50 states. That report, Freedom in the 50 States, claims that New Hampshire is the freest state in the nation. https://www.freedominthe50states.org/ "New Hampshire is overall the freest state in the Union, combining relatively high scores on both personal and economic freedom." There is only one major report that compares economic freedom in North America. That report, Economic Freedom of North America, claims that New Hampshire has the most economic freedom in the nation. https://www.fraserinstitute.org/studies/economic-freedom-of-north-america-2016 "New Hampshire leads U.S. in economic freedom two years running; New York still the least-free state" The future looks bright in New Hampshire. New Hampshire has one of the least bad governors in the nation, and is expected to expand on cannabis freedom, school choice, reduce corporate taxes, eliminate some regulations, and more over the next two years. Plus, back several years ago, the top liberty activists in the nation got together and voted on which state makes the most sense to encourage 20,000 liberty activists to move to, to create a society with liberty in their lifetime. New Hampshire won that vote by the top liberty activists. Since then, 20,000 liberty activists signed up, triggering the 5 year move period, and already, 1,000s of liberty activists have made the move to New Hampshire, with 1,000s more expected.

    Cool. Some of the footage is from New Hampshire. On Thursday of the New Hampshire Liberty Forum, the documentary will be shown. I'm going to wait until then to watch it. From the preview I saw, it looked good :)

    If it isn't against state law, a city may raise or lower the drinking or smoking age. As you pointed out, towns and cities, and even liberal and conservative states across the country, have raised the age for smoking. Statewide, this doesn't appear to be a liberal vs. conservative issue. However, on a city level, it likely is mostly a liberal issue, at least for smoking. For alcohol, on the local level, it seems to be mostly a conservative issue. There are still lots of dry places around the country, and they are mostly bastions of Conservativism.

    The whole point of the EPA is to solve or reduce pollution problems that cross state lines. In this case, it actually created the problem, and refuses to solve it. It seems there is no longer any point in the EPA. Time to follow Ron Paul's advice! :cool:

    This is great news for out-of-state small business owners. It should be named the OR-NV-AZ Small Business Promotion Bill.

    It wouldn't make sense for the federal government to make it illegal since seat belt use isn't required in all states. #LiveFreeorDie :D

    My understanding is that both industry leaders, Google and Samsung, already sold over 5 million of their various VR headsets. Google just released a new headset and Samsung is supposed to do so later this year. VR never caused any issues for my roommate or me with our headsets. The problem with Sony not being able to sell more, is that it is producing headsets at a slow rate. I'm loving the technology, and if it only doubles the 2016 sales this year, that's fine with me.

    SB12 passed a NH Senate committee yesterday. Now it goes to the full NH Senate. The vote is expected to be around 14 to 10, with all 14 Republicans expected to vote for it. This bill is on a fast track because the NH Senate leadership, NH House leadership, and the Governor all strongly support it. As written, this is the best Constitutional Carry bill in the nation. If it becomes law, it will be very obvious that NH has the best firearm laws in the nation. While the NH Senate isn't expected to amend the bill, it is possible that the NH House might amend the bill. Feel free to contact your elected officials and ask them to support and pass SB12, the Constitutional Carry bill, as written. Look up your elected officials here. http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/ A story about SB12. http://www.guns.com/2017/01/11/new-hampshire-constitutional-carry-legislation-makes-it-out-of-committee/

    How many students would this effect? Perhaps half the students in the system. That's 220,000 students. How much will it cost per student? I'll go with a conservative $60,000, assuming most of the students will not finish a traditional 4.5 year degree at a university. 220,000 x 60,000 = over 13 billion dollars. NY should easily be able to afford this if it doubles state income taxes and no businesses let any employees go or relocate to a different state. Sounds like a plan :rolleyes: :confused: :toady: BTW, NY is already the least free state in the nationl overall and specifically for economic freedom. This might lead to NY being the least free place in North America. https://www.freedominthe50states.org/overall/new-york

    I guess they don't have independent contractors in France, or I'd think millions of workers would soon be told they had to become independent contractors to counter this new regulation.

    I did fix the title :) He is one of the best known libertarians in the country. I guess you could say he was a libertarian/conservative or some combination of the above. He is libertarian on economic issues, and on many social issues such as: drugs, firearms, affirmative action, etc. https://www.theadvocates.org/libertarianism-101/libertarian-celebrities/thomas-sowell/ Call Dr. Sowell libertarian or conservative. What really matters is that he did so much, far more than any of us, to explain to millions of people over decades that libertarian policies are good policies ;)

    Legendary libertarian author Dr. Thomas Sowell retired is weekly column. This is sad news, as it was featured in many newspapers, providing a regular libertarian perspective to millions of readers.

    We don't know for sure if they have the law on their side with a slam dunk case. I agree that the state law should stand. However, state or federal judges might disagree. Until this or similar laws have gone to court multiple times, we don't know. It is great that these folks volunteered to be test cases, though. They are better men than I.

    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

She is a stand-out libertarian champion. She is running a campaign where she has a really huge chance of winning. She is endorsed by Tom Woods, Peter Schiff, Lew Rockwell, Adam Kokesh and many others. She has a really slick website: http://karenkforcongress.com/

But most importantly, she has always been a huge support of Dr Paul. She has written tons of articles and some books on the great man. She spoke at the Veterans for Ron Paul March on the Whitehouse. She posts articles on her

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
