While at one time I did think very briefly about this; I happened to decide it was a hypocritical idea.
Libertarians and AnCaps who are pushing this idea, say that they don't believe in the use of Force; they(libertarians and AnCaps) say that education is the way to bring about the world we want.
My question -which is where I find their hypocricy- is this: If education is the way to bring about change, then why is the FSP trying to get over 20k to move to New Hampshire to vote for libertarian office holders? If the inhabitants of New Hampshire wanted libertarian office holders then wouldn't they have already voted them into office? If so then what is the purpose of 20k plus people moving to New Hampshire to vote for libertarians? If, however, the inhabitants of New Hampshire didn't vote for libertarian office holders, then couldn't it be construed that the FSP's objective is to 'force' libertarians onto people who don't want libertarians?
If the Free-Staters truly wanted to be consistant, then they wouldn't go to New Hampshire to vote but to educate the current inhabitants of New Hamshire to the benefits of Voluntaryism, so that those who have lived in New Hampshire could vote for libertarians of their own free will if they wanted to?
