    New Hampshire named the place to live free

    San Antonio Express-News, Oct. 2, 2003

    Kate McCann--Associated Press

    "Libertarian group just dying to take over state."

    CONCORD, N.H.---A group of libertarians announced a project Wesnesday to get 20,000 Americans to move here and work to tranform it into a "free state" with fewer laws, smaller government and greater liberty.
    New Hampshire, whose motto is "Live Free or Die," beat out the other finalists for the Free State Project. Wyoming was runner-up in balloting conducted by about 5,000 members of the project, vice president Elizabeth McKinstry said.
    The 5,000 members already have pledged to move to the selected state, Free State Project organizers said. They hope to increase their numbers to 20,000 within two years and start transforming the state into a national model of liberty.
    Some free-staters want to roll back restrictions on gambling, legalize medicinal marijuana and strengthen gun rights. But McKinstry said members also will work for charities and scholarship programs and help citizens get more involved in government.
    "We won. That's fantastic," New Hampshire Libertarian Party chairman John Babiarz said of his states' selection. "It's like New Hampshire has won a nationwide popularity contest, based on it's fundamentals."
    McKinstry, of Ann Arbor, Mich., said New Hampshire won "because it boasts the lowest state and local tax burden in the continental U.S., the leanest state government in the country, a citizen legislature, a healthy job market, and, perhaps most important, local support for our movement."
    Project members also like the New Hampshire Constitution, which reads in part: "Whenever the ends of government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the people may, and of right ought to reform the old, or establish a new government."
    The prospective new neighbors worry some of New Hampshire's 1.2 million residents.
    "I like to be left alone by the government. But I need my trash picked up. I need police protection," said Dennis Pizzimenti, a lawyer in Concord.
    Kathy Sullivan, state Democratic Party chairwoman, said project members "can best be described as anarchists."
    Babiarz, a database consultant, said critics have it wrong: "We're not here to invade or take over. We're here to restore the American dream."
    Doug Hillman, 39, said he's looking forward to leaving Graham, Alabama, and moving his wife and children somewhere near Littleton or Lancaster.
    Hillman was most impressed with Republican Gov. Craig Benson's attitude toward the project-- "Come on up, we'd love to have you.," he said, last summer.
    "That led me to believe that libertarian thought and libertarianism is more accepted in New Hampshire," Hillman said.

    Really though, "Live Free or Die" is the coolest state motto I've ever heard.

    God bless anywhere you can get liquor on Sundays. Oh yeah Live Free or Die is by far the gangsterest state motto that there is. Much better than VA. Viginia is for lovers. What types of shit is that?

    New Hampshire is already pretty free

    Which is one reason the Libertarian Party wants to push it farther towards their ideas. VERMONT ROCKS, even though it has a lot of liberals, it has one of the VERY FEW gun laws in the U.S. that says "Anybody can carry a handgun concealed anytime they want to, anywhere they want to." Very, very few armed robberies in Vermont. The Second Amendment movement in the U.S. aspires to spread "Vermont style carry" all over the country.
