John Stossel on the Free State Project

by Tim Condon

Hubba, hubba! The Free State Project and New Hampshire just got another boost, this time from John Stossel writing at Reason.com. Says he:

A group called the Free State Project invites us to move to New Hampshire to help create “liberty in our lifetime.” It’s too early to see how that will work out, but that state now has a booming population of libertarians and anarchists. One even got elected to the state legislature after running against his own roommate, also a libertarian, whom he accused of not being anti-government enough.

Americans who want to escape state income taxes and live near better job prospects can move to one of those nine states that I mentioned above….Last decade, those nine states gained population and increased jobs by 4.9 percent; jobs in the rest of the states declined by 2.6 percent.

It’s good that we have places like Texas and New Hampshire to which fed-up citizens can escape. In Europe, you’d have to leave your country to escape its worst laws.

You can read the whole thing—and find out which are “those nine states” that Stossel  touted—by going HERE.

    Nice, I always liked Stossel. He gave the commencement speech at my wife’s graduation. Solid guy… and hopefully this will mean more small gov folks coming to NH to counter the MA libs that can’t afford the policies they advocate.

    Stossel should move to New Hampshire – like Mark Steyn and P.J. O’Rourke – to gin up our cool factor as a counterweight to Hollywood’s drug addicts and thought-challenged glitteratti.
