New Hampshire: A Hotbed for Liberty
By Shem Kellogg
The United States was once a constitutional republic, and today New Hampshire is on the forefront in the battle to return the U.S. to its original principles of state sovereignty, limited federal government and individual liberty.
The year Thomas Jefferson was elected President, eleven out of sixteen states didn’t have direct popular election for President, and no state had direct election of US senators. The voters chose their state representative, a man whom they personally knew, and he then voted for the upper-level offices.
How many here are familiar with this project?
I have been casually watching for a year or so now.
I recently took my wife to New Hampshire for vacation and we loved it. What a refreshing change from New York State!
Please send Sal Russo and his TPE Bus a little love note about why he has no business coming to NH and endorsing Scott Brown. If he does it here, he may do it in YOUR state.

For those of you who don't know me, I am a Ron Paul supporter running for state representative in New Hampshire: shemkellogg.com. I am less than one month away from my primary. Ron Paul Forums has been generous enough to offer the campaign its own subforum in the "Defenders of Liberty" section, alongside Rand Paul and others: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/forumdisplay.php?262-Shem-Kello...
I am using it to involve users who sincerely care to help me, convince them that my race is winnable, and demonstrate that I am committed to winning. My hopes are that my race will encourage other activists to run for office.
Since I filed to be on the ballot, I have been receiving candidate surveys and other items in the mail. I have been sharing these and my responses to the surveys in the forum.
I worked on it for a few years and it is patented. The concept is a bit difficult to understand in the beginning mainly because we are conditioned to the current problem-centric world. Solutions are developed around specific problems and we are used to constantly adapting to these ever changing and ever growing solutions. It is like going against the popular belief and we run into initial friction with this concept (Have you ever experienced this situation?)

Politically Correct Libertarianism Must Die!!
Published on Jul 16, 2014
The Libertarian Brutalism Facebook group was deleted today, because politically correct libertarians can't mind their own business. Well, I've got a few things to say to these people.
Indeed, I motherfrakkin' concur with this motherfrakkin' message!
With the 2014 Porcupine Freedom Festival only 1 day away, I know we are all excited. This is by far the most enjoyable liberty event in the world. 8 days or pure joy and it is about to be upon us!
Suffolk-Herald Poll: Romney Is Early Favorite In N.H. 2016 GOP Primary
Thursday, June 19, 2014
By: Joe Battenfeld
The surprise early frontrunner in New Hampshire’s next GOP presidential primary is the loser of the last White House race – former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who wipes the 2016 field by a more than 2-1 margin, a new Suffolk University-Boston Herald poll reveals.
A positive article in the FORBES about the free state project in New Hampshire. You will see a lot of familiar names.
If you were not sure what to do or where to move: New Hampshire is a good state to consider moving.
The Weare New Hampshire police department agreed to pay Carla Gericke, President of the Free State Project who was arrested and charged with wiretapping $57,000 to settle her civil rights lawsuit.
The case follows a Federal case that ruled video taping police is legal.
CONCORD, N.H., June 4, 2014 – Today, the New Hampshire House and Senate gave final approval to a bill which bans government officials from obtaining “information contained in a portable electronic device” without a warrant “signed by a judge and based on probable cause.” It now goes to the Governor’s desk for a signature
House Bill 1533 (HB1533) was introduced by Rep. Neal Kurk and passed both the House and Senate by unanimous voice votes.
The bill sets up a direct legal conflict with federal surveillance programs as well. It reads, in part:
June 4th through Friday the 13th is the filing period to run for a Republican Party Delegate position in New Hampshire. It is free to file. You do so at your town office with your town clerk.
-Be registered as a Republican by 6/3/14
-Have lived in the town for at least 1 day
-File the paperwork with the town clerk
-Be able to attend the NHGOP Convention and the convention for the county you live in (5 to 7 hours in total)
If anyone is thinking about filing, please send me a message. If you lives in New Hampshire and are a Republican but doesn't want to file, why not?
Come to the Free State Project's PorcFest with Nick Gillespie! LAST DAY FOR BARGAIN REGISTRATION!
