Free Staters, Pack Your Bags

Carla Gericke, President of the Free State Project, wants to “trigger the move.”  According to the Manchester Union-Leader:

Based on the current recruiting rate, Gericke said, the pledge total would hit 20,000 in 2018, triggering the large-scale move to New Hampshire. Under that scenario, the goal would be to have all pledgers relocate by 2023.

However, Gericke said she does not want to wait until she is 51 years old to trigger the move.

“I want to do it in the next two years,” she said, explaining the only way to accelerate the move is to begin major fundraising efforts and secure sponsors to help raise about $270,000 – a figure she believes could make the move feasible.

“The most valuable thing you can do is move, and you won’t regret it,” she told those in attendance for the opening ceremony of the New Hampshire Liberty Forum on Friday at the Crowne Plaza. ” … We are building the beacon of liberty for the rest of the world to emulate.”

I’m not a member (because I can’t absolutely commit to moving according to the pledge and I take my word very seriously) but I wish the FSP well and hope that more and more people will move to New Hampshire to realize “liberty in our lifetime.”
