Free State Project (Liberty in our lifetime) is possible!Submitted by 14thdistricttexan on Tue, 03/20/2012 - 03:52
I'm not sure how many people know about the Free State Project, but I think it's about time to bring it up, right about now. Here is an excerpt from their site.
"Are you frustrated at the loss of freedom and responsibility in America, while the growth of government and taxes continues unabated? Do you want to live in strong communities where your rights are respected, and people exercise responsibility for themselves and in their dealings with each other?"
"If you answered "yes" to those questions, then the Free State Project has a solution for you."
If this interest you then please head to their site and check it out. We need to start taking action and doing something to get our liberty's back, and I believe that getting together, strength in numbers does matter, and changing things locally will at least change things in our immediate lives.
"I am a friend of the Free State Project. Absolutely! Check it out, find out, and if you like it, join, and continue the effort." -Ron Paul
