Free State Project is winning


New Hampshire's 8th district state representative, Cynthia Chase, says:

"In the opinion of this Democrat, Free Staters are the single biggest threat the state is facing today. There is, legally, nothing we can do to prevent them from moving here to take over the state, which is their openly stated goal. In this country you can move anywhere you choose and they have that same right. What we can do is to make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave. One way is to pass measures that will restrict the “freedoms” that they think they will find here. Another is to shine the bright light of publicity on who they are and why they are coming."

Read more in the article. Cynthia is recognizing that freedom is winning, and she is afraid!!

If you are a pledged member of the Free State Project, contact Cynthia and let her know you're coming soon to a district near her ;)

I'm pledged...

And have casually looked for a good relocation spot. But, I'll be honest, if it wasn't for the Free State project, I would have no interest in the location for many reasons and kinda wish they had chosen somewhere else.

The Philosophy Of Liberty -

Have you seen the movie

Have you seen the movie Strategic Relocation or read the book? They mention that Northern New England (NH/ME/VT) is the best location for preppers in the Northeast. In fact, they lists the 2 best locations in the East as the Cumberland Plateau of TN/KY and northern Northern New England. They also go into how it is better to be in an area with a lot of liberty minded people, low taxes and fewer regulations. NH has the most liberty minded people per capita of anywhere in the world, near the lowest taxes in the US and near the fewest regulations so if you are a prepper and want to live in the Northeast, northern NH is the best stop. You don't even have to live in northern NH. Just have a house there and plan a route to get from where you currently live to that house if you need to do so.

This story has been covered dozens of times on online, on radio, in newspapers and on TV. Here is the Fox News video.

Live Free or Die!

The New Hampshire Liberty

The New Hampshire Liberty Alliance gave her a Inc. for 2011. That means she didn't even bother to drive to Concord and vote on the bills. Yet she had the nerve to run again. BTW, she moved to NH from RI to make NH more like RI. She is what's wrong with NH. Heck, with politics in general.


Live Free or Die!

Oh, the Irony!

How soon they forget (or didn't know) how the state was chosen (at least in part), because it was already the most libertarian state in the first place!

There's nothing uglier than a statist, threatened. It brings out their bigotry.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Any ideas on this:

How can we turn this on Cynthia? Seriously, I'm done with writing to Representatives, Congressman, Senator, etc. I want this to turn for the absolute WORST for Cynthia.

So, how can we make this woman look worse than she has already done herself? Legally, of course.

Lima-1, out.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Have her replaced...

Find out when she's up for re-election and promote her opponent. No doubt, New Hampshire WILL have a liberty candidate. The state is full of them!!!! :D

Do what 'they' do

start a smear campaign.

Forget writing to that Nazi douchebag, she chose her side.

I am not sure this is winning

Sure - it means it is being noticed. But haven't we learned thay flying under the radar is the only way? I mean - the fact that she CLEARLY has ZERO concern about coming right out and saying she wants to take freedoms away says this train is more off the rails than we could have thought. A mere ten years ago she would have just kissed her job goodbye - now - there is a chance she(and clearly others) think it will HELP her get re-elected.

Remeber people - there are not enough awake yet - those still asleep will look to this idiot as a savior - after all - she will keep us Liberty nutjobs away from their precious state - allowing them to go back to watching Jersey Shore reruns and Cougar Town - those fine examples of modern culture.

I would have rather not heard about it until after she was voted out and she was complaining it was due to the Free State Project.

When you fly under the radar

how can you be visible in the public eye?

Flying under the radar doesn't sound very brave. If we're not brave we will not be free.

Forget about flying under the radar

That ship sailed long ago.

The opposite needs to be done: get in this idiot's face every moment of every day until they can't take it anymore. No more of this "infiltration" crap. it doesn't work.

People aren't going to "wake up" if others aren't screaming from the rooftops! How do you expect to awaken others with mere whispers?

edit: Sorry if I come off a bit harsh, I just really, *really* dislike this woman.

The George Bush defense

It appears that she is taking the George Bush defense. "They hate us for our freedoms" -> solution: "get rid of our freedoms". Getting rid of freedom seems to always be the solution of people in government.

I think she meant to say

"In the opinion of this Democrat, Free Staters are the single biggest threat the state government is facing today."

"A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself within" W. Durant

People like her opening their mouths is a win.

One way is to pass measures that will restrict the “freedoms” that they think they will find here.

Can anyone read that with out thinking whoa, we need more of these Free-Staters these authoritarians are nuts.

The people of New Hampshire are proud to be free!

The Free State Project is the

The Free State Project is the best chance for liberty. I wish more in the movement would realize this. National and even state politics are futile without a concentration of liberty activists.

I agree with you. We can

I agree with you. We can change so much at the state level that we (currently) have no chance of changing at the Federal level.

I would go further..

It is much easier to make changes at the county level. So many people in this movement promote state candidates and federal candidates... but I virtually NEVER see anyone promoting constitutional sheriffs.

Get yourself a constitutional sheriff in office and you're free. Trump card. Done deal... all politics is local. We are throwing all politics out the window when we are not even paying attention to who the sheriff is.

Order of authority is God -> "The people" (if you are an atheist then hey - you are top of the food chain) -> The sheriff and his deputies/posse.

I find that paying ANY attention to other candidates is a COMPLETE waste of time... with the possible exception of state reps in New Hampshire since they are so far along with the free state project.

If you want liberty where you live on your state - think about moving everyone into the same county and then putting all your energy into getting a constitutional sheriff elected.


This is great!

The funniest thing about this is that there's absolutely no mention of WHY it's such a bad thing that 'free staters' move in and bring their 'ideology' with them. The only reason being I assume because...it isn't! That in fact it's only her own irrational prejudice that makes her not like the 'freedoms' she amazingly openly disavows and promises to try and 'restrict'. I wonder what her forefathers in the NH militias of 1776 would make of her attitudes? I kept on expecting some kind of explanation or reason for her hostility would follow, but no, it clearly doesn't exist, there is only the criminal's mindless, unthinking hatred and fear of people who actually have principles.

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.

Good Job Free State

Good Job Free State Project....I would love to move to NH myself, but i am leery to quit my job i wouldn't be able to get back, in fear that maybe i would not find work in NH. But i will always wish you the best, this lady is misguided to say the least, and needs to move to Mass or CA or NY or somewhere of the ilk. Make New Hampshires state motto ring true again FSP!

*Wisconsin Constitution* Article I, Section 25 "The people have the right to keep and bear arms for security,defense,hunting,recreation or any other law-abiding purpose"

My letter:

I am appalled:

"Free Staters are the single biggest threat the state is facing today... What we can do is to make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave."

YOU are the reason that I abandoned being a lifelong Democrat to officially change my registration.

YOU have NO respect for Liberty, Freedom, the Constitution, our great Republic.

YOU would trample and restrict rights, impose YOUR personal beliefs onto others for the sake of personal gain/advancement, rather than to let human beings live freely the way that they see fit for themselves and their own families. Do you even understand natural-born, God-given rights?

Good, "shine the light of publicity" it will make even more

people come there!



Surely her words won't have the exact opposite of their desired effect.

just WOW

what a pig of a politician this person is, she will say and do anything to keep herself and her comrades in power. This person needs to be pushed out of her cushy office asap, utterly disgusting creature..

she couldn't have sounded more like

a fascist if she tried.

Well she probably could. It's in her.

Hello Rep. Chase I have been

Hello Rep. Chase

I have been considering moving to NH for some time, Partially due to the work of the Free State Project. I operate a company that rents out stage equipment. i have over 20k worth of stage sound and lighting equipment such as speakers, mixers, lights and etc. I have been in contact with local musicians and event promoters as well as with two possible business partners looking at opening a music venue.

So the reason i am contacting you is because of the negative attitude you have taken toward the free state project. I was just wondering what kind of "measures" you were considering passing that would restrict my "freedoms"... talk such as that from a state representative is very discouraging. Its my understanding that "rights" and "freedoms" are things to be desired. This is a serious inquiry and i would appreciate a response.

Thanks you
- James

I will be holding my breath

awaiting a response.

Oh man, I cannot wait to move

Oh man, I cannot wait to move there, and it just may happen very soon.


“One way is to pass measures that will restrict the “freedoms” that they think they will find here.“

This is the ideology of a mut-case politician. In order to make NH less appealing, the strategy advocated is to take away freedoms.

How did mrs. mao even get elected?

Re: "Free Staters"

Ms. Chase,

I wanted to provide myself as a contradicting example to a comment you shared recently. Your statement "Free Staters are the single biggest threat the state is facing today" is invalid because I, myself, am what you would call a 'Free Stater' and by no means do I provide a threat to the State of New Hampshire or to the people who reside within the state. On the contrary, I am one of many ordinary individuals exhausted with inflated government, excessive legislation and taxation, wastful inefficient departments and the endless corruption among the ranks of the beauracracy. I understand that LIBERTY is not something your voting record supports [HB536, HB1526, CACR31, to make example of a few], so I can understand why you personally feel threatened, but to extend this fear to your base only serves to encourage partisanship instead of productivity. If I may suggest, embrace the incoming freedom loving folks instead of marginalizing them and coming up with ways of 'scaring them off', because trust me when I say, you will not disuade those committed to the Free State Project and to the constitutional freedoms held by all Americans.
