The Free State Project: Escape to Liberty


"If you want a Big Brother,
you get all that comes with it."

-- Erich Fromm

I’ve written about this project off and on for over a dozen years now and they are making progress.  As America becomes more and more restrictive and as the un-Patriot Act and life-long political leaches chip away at our Bill of Rights, this movement is looking better and better…here’s an update:


The FSP is, according to its website, “an effort to recruit 20,000 liberty-loving people to move to New Hampshire.”

Hatched in 2001, the FSP wants 20,000 libertarians to quit their jobs, sell their homes (if they own a home, that is) and relocate to the Granite State.
Let’s take a look at why this project shows promise.

First and foremost, the FSP makes a pretty convincing case for moving to the state. We can’t imagine anyone would think, on paper at least, that New Hampshire would be a bad place to live. Libertarian or not.

Just take a look at FSP’s video called
101 Reasons to Move to New Hampshire.

Here are just the first six…

  1. No sales tax
  2. No income tax
  3. No capital gains tax
  4. No inventory tax
  5. No machinery tax
  6. No eminent domain

Bottom line, New Hampshire, year after year, has been ranked #1 in the country for quality of life and livability.

Here are three Quality of Life stats that stand out to us.

ONE: “New Hampshire residents,” the FSP website reads, “rank #1 in knowledge of fundamental economics and financial concepts.”

In a FINRA Investor Education Foundation Financial Capability Survey, conducted nationwide, the Granite State scored first in the nation in areas of financial knowledge and decision making -- AKA “financial literacy.”

Imagine that…

A state filled with people who understand economics not just theoretically, but how it applies to everyday life. That’s an interesting experiment in itself.

TWO: “New Hampshire is the 5th healthiest state in the nation.”

New Hampshirites, despite its “high prevalence for binge drinking,” according to, “are more active than most Americans, enjoy a low rate of infectious diseases, and have a low infant mortality rate.”
THREE: Moreover, the FSP website reads, “With the lowest homicide rate in the country, New Hampshire consistently ranks as the safest state.

Not one of the safest… the safest.

It also boasts the largest homeschooling networks… strong self-defense laws… the highest number of Bitcoin transactions in the U.S. per capita (meaning, an openness to dollar alternatives)… the highest median income… and the lowest poverty rate in the U.S.

You can check out all 101 reasons at the Free State Project’s website here.

From the looks of it, as mentioned, the FSP is working.

Upon writing, 18,643 Americans have pledged to move to the state within the next five years -- amounting to 93% of their goal of 20,000.

As you know, we’re always on the lookout for ways to live free in an unfree world.

If you don’t like the idea of leaving the country in search of those greener pastures, New Hampshire could be a great option within the borders

The Royal Bank of Scotland recently told its clients that 2016 is going to be a “cataclysmic year” and that they should “sell everything”

According to RBS, the logical thing to do is to “sell everything” excerpt for high quality bonds…

“Sell everything except high quality bonds,” warned Andrew Roberts in a note this week.

He said the bank’s red flags for 2016 — falling oil, volatility in China, shrinking world trade, rising debt, weak corporate loans and deflation — had all been seen in just the first week of trading.

We think investors should be afraid,” he said.

And of course RBS is not the only big bank issuing these kinds of ominous warnings.

The biggest bank in America, J.P. Morgan Chase, is “urging investors to sell stocks on any bounce”

J.P. Morgan Chase has turned its back on the stock market: For the first time in seven years, the investment bank is urging investors to sell stocks on any bounce.

“Our view is that the risk-reward for equities has worsened materially. In contrast to the past seven years, when we advocated using the dips as buying opportunities, we believe the regime has transitioned to one of selling any rally,” Mislav Matejka, an equity strategist at J.P. Morgan, said in a report.

Aside from technical indicators, expectations of anemic corporate earnings combined with the downward trajectory in U.S. manufacturing activity and a continued weakness in commodities are raising red flags.

Major banks have not talked like this since the great financial crisis of 2008/2009
