NHPR’s Laura Knoy on The Exchange talks with FSP President Carla Gericke, Free Stater & Republican Representative Carol Mcquire, and Free Stater & Democratic Representative Joel Winters about the Free State Project
“Ten years ago, New Hampshire was chosen by members of the libertarian minded group, the Free State Project, to move here en-masse and make change. A decade later, they’ve had some influence, on state and local politics but have also faced criticism. We’ll look at where the Free-State movement is now…and its plans for the future.”
Thousands of liberty-minded people are moving to New Hampshire, working within and without its political system to reduce the size and scope of government.
The plan is to inspire 20,000 or more pro-liberty activists to join our efforts to reduce burdensome taxation and regulation, reform state and local law, opt out of federal mandates, protect individual rights, expand free markets, restore constitutional federalism, and much more.
While as individuals we vary in our approach, we all are working to exert the fullest practical effort toward the creation of a society in which the maximum role of government—if any—is the protection of life, liberty, and property.
Our efforts have the potential to demonstrate the benefits of liberty, and to set an example for the rest of the nation and the world to follow.
