Unfortunately the Libertarian Party has been hijacked by some nut jobs, just like you always tend to hear in regards to the Democratic and Republican parties. I can't identify with alot of Libertarians nowadays, including Ron Paul (in essence anyways). Maybe on a local scale, but not in a national election. I govern my principles in a libertarian fashion, but mostly I identify myself with the Constitution Party, a party much more in tune with reality. Remember too the last Libertarian candidate that ran for president (Badnarick) was adamant that we needed to overhaul our currency and print all new money....good grief.

Good for them! That's not as bad as I thought.

Oh, I was with him on that. The Federal Reserve is a joke. Our money has value only because the government says it does. That's crazy! I'd much rather have a currency backed by something tangible and valuable, like gold and silver ... the way it used to be.

Default Free State Project Good/Bad?

I've frequented the Free State Project website for over a year. I'm military so I actually live in a dictatorship fighting for democracy. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy my military career, but I'll be ready to store the uniform the minute retirement comes around. I'm all for life after the service to be as least governmentally controlled as possible. Everything I've read about the project seems pretty interesting, again its what is out there on the web. Does anybody have any solid first hand experience with this project-members? I'm not for the "cult thing" but if there is good information out there trying to help the average Joe to avoid getting his rights trampled, I'm for it.

Looks like there are those in these forums that may be ignorant of the FSP and will emphasize the 1%ers to judge all FSP members by. Thus it appears that I may become demonized but still I will be in NH soon, voting and fighting to uphold those guarantee. You may disagree but I believe that USA is here today because of approximately 1/3 of the population in 1776. Today I am proud to be the small percent aligned with the FSP.
Do you belong to FSP? Can you provide any insider info besides what is posted on the website? I'm all about what I read but need to walk a fine line while still on active duty.

I too am planning to move to NH because of the FSP. Once I graduate, I want to settle in the Berlin or Lancaster area.

Wow, this thread almost took on a life of its own. I stopped reading the City-Data forums for a while, but I want to start again. Guess I'm bored and looking for stuff to waste time on.

I think it's a worthwhile idea, but yeah, it's gonna be hard for them to bring in the numbers they need to have any influence on the govt. Living for Liberty in your lifetime sounds good on paper until you have to consider the logistics of giving up your current income and career to be a political pioneer and start over in another state.

They considered several states with low populations and compiled a good amount of data on them, which is how I found out about the Free State Project in the first place (while researching Idaho). They held a vote and for some reason New Hampsire won out, probably because of its low taxes. (I probably would have gone with one of the other states for reasons of scenery and recreation, but that's just me.)

Maybe we should base a new currency on one of a "Power" metal like Uranium. At least this metal can do something useful like produce electric power or really loud explosions. Gold is only really useful for fine electric wiring, trinkets and teeth.

Uh, Greg. I think you are losing it. Since you re-joined on 1/25 you have been posting an average of 10.85 posts per day. You need to take a break.
