Yea! Go Free State Project. Wow. What a model. What a terrific model. When I was governor of new Mexico, the Free State Project came to my attention [...] 30,000 people who said they're going to relocate in some area in the United States, get elected to all the offices and basically "hands off" when it comes to the government. Very very very libertarian, if not anarchist. Anarchist being complete government void. No government! well, Terrific! I wanted to see that happen in New Mexico, it's now happening in New Hampshire. Good thing. Really a terrific thing. I just applaud the Free State project. I look forward to successes from the Free State Project that the country emulates.Governor Gary Johnson, 2012 Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate
During a Q&A on Vokle, Libertarian Presidential Candidate, and former New Mexico Governor, Gary Johnson was asked: “What is your opinion on the Free State Project?”
It’s great to see a candidate for president endorse the Free State Project. He even made it sound more radical than it actually is, since not all participants are anarchists. He got the FSP recruitment goal wrong – it’s 20,000 not 30,000. Here is how the Free State Project describes themselves:
What the Free State Project is… The Free State Project is an effort to recruit 20,000 liberty-loving people to move to New Hampshire. We are looking for neighborly, productive, tolerant folks from all walks of life, of all ages, creeds, and colors who agree to the political philosophy expressed in our Statement of Intent, that government exists at most to protect people’s rights, and should neither provide for people nor punish them for activities that interfere with no one else.
