State Representative Dan Itse has been interviewed about New Hampshire declaring independence for an article appearing on righty website World Net Daily. It’s nice to see support for the idea of secession already coming from people within the state house. Hopefully we’ll see some legislation to put forth the idea sooner rather than later. Itse says in his interview,
“Thinking on this, and as they drafted the Articles of Confederation, would they have entered into a union, a perpetual union, if they could not also withdraw from that union when that union became injurious to their liberty?” Itse asked.
“The answer is categorically no,” he told WND. “And I have never posited that question to anyone where they didn’t come up with the proper conclusion.”
The federal government is definitely injuring our liberty, not to mention murdering people worldwide in our name. It’s time New Hampshire and every other state government declare their independence and end this failed United States. The feds bring nothing of value to the table and only siphon off our valuable resources into bombing raids and more killing and record imprisonment of our people.

Free State Project founder Jason Sorens was published in the Washington Post today, asking the question, “Where Scotland failed, could New Hampshire succeed?”. As it stands, approximately one in four Americans support their state seceding from the U.S., which is an excellent starting point to begin a discussion on the issue. The more we can talk about the idea of seceding, the more realistic it will become, so now is a great time to talk to friends, family, and co-workers about what happened in Scotland and why we need to seriously consider the same thing here.
While the Reuters poll on secession shows New Englanders being the least likely to support secession (19%), we all know that Granite Staters are not of the same mindset as the rest of New England. Unfortunately, the poll does not break out individual states’ responses. Hopefully we’ll see a NH-only poll conducted at some point in the future. Meantime, we need more liberty-loving people to move here as part of the Free State Project and for people to start discussions with loved ones about this idea. The Foundation for New Hampshire Independence has some good outreach information on the idea. Let’s make it a reality!
On Thursday, a majority of Scots voted against independence from the United Kingdom. Their desire for self-determination, though, is easy to understand: The same impulse motivates present-day demands for federalism and state autonomy in the United States. Over the past decade, for instance, the Free State Project has been drawing libertarians to the relatively libertarian-friendly state of New Hampshire to pursue smaller government. Could New Hampshire or another state (one in fourAmericans want their state to secede, according to a poll last week) ever hold its own vote on independence? (more…)
Activists Explain Bitcoin and More at Cheshire Fair 2014!
Wow! What an amazing week at the Cheshire Fair! Sunday was (surprisingly) the busiest day at the fair of the entire week, and may have been the best day I can recall in all three years I’ve done booths at the fair. People were constantly streaming by the booth. As a result, we gave out over 200 Bitcoin fliers today alone, and probably close to 600 BTC fliers throughout the five days of the fair. In fact, we nearly ran out of full-color BTC fliers on Friday and I ordered 400 more black and white flyers from Staples and we gave them ALL out on Saturday and Sunday!
Once the Bitcoin flyers were tapped out on late Sunday afternoon, the crowd (there at that point for the demolition derby) continued to flow by. Chris Cantwell, (who is an amazing talent at doing booth outreach) and I handed out a large stack of CopBlock WARNING fliers. After quickly exhausting that supply, we moved on to handing out NHjury.com and Foundation for NH Independence fliers for the remainder of the event. In total, just Sunday alone, we likely handed out 500 fliers of the above-listed sorts.
Naturally, it was a lot easier to hand out the CopBlock, Independence, or Jury fliers. The reactions to those were almost all positive. Getting the Bitcoin flyers out was more of a challenge, mainly because lots of people attending the Cheshire Fair do not have internet! (We live in the woods.)
Liberty activists are back at the 2014 Cheshire Fair for our third year! In addition to the usual liberty-oriented propaganda, this year’s booth features a bitcoin vending machine! If you haven’t gotten started with bitcoin yet, drop by and we can set you up with a free bitcoin wallet from Blockchain.com and you can fund the wallet with bitcoin via the vending machine at the table.
