The Wonderland of Liberty is in NH

The Wonderland of Liberty is in NH

On this day in 2012, I wrote an article for Freedom Phoenix called “Down the Rabbit Hole: Living in a Free State of Mind”. I described my vision for the future of freedom in New Hampshire thusly: “Through the looking glass we go! Let’s implement financial freedom and privacy in the spirit of the Switzerland of […]

Roadblocks Belong in Banana Republics, Not New Hampshire

Roadblocks Belong in Banana Republics, Not New Hampshire

Last weekend, Border Patrol hosted its first “Papers Please” roadblock in New Hampshire in the past five years. It was positioned just south of where the NH Cannabis Freedom Festival was taking place. And guess what? According to the Union Leader, more people were arrested for drug possession than for their immigration status. When I learned […]

Leave Christopher David Alone!

Leave Christopher David Alone!

Sunday, Nov. 8, 2015 by Scott McPherson When a gang wants to stifle a competitor, they bring in a “heavy” to rough up the offending party. Portsmouth’s taxi monopolists brought in the local government for their dirty work. It’s the same shakedown, but the gang sits under a big fancy seal of incorporation, and the […]

On Banned Books Week

by Carla Gericke Censorship has always fascinated me–who gets to decide what someone else can read? Why? By what authority can one person tell another what they are “permitted” to know? I reject the legitimacy of censorship out of hand. No one has such authority, and history proves those who wish to control what others […]

My Big Fat Liberty Family

Issue #? – Sunday, July 5, 2015 by Sandy Pierre May 26th marked the ten-year anniversary of my moving to New Hampshire as a participant in the Free State Project.  I’m a bit abashed to admit that, aside from a short Facebook post on the subject, I haven’t yet marked the occasion in any particular […]

The Contraband Fatty French Meat Caper

Issue #38 – Thursday, May 14, 2015 by Sandy Pierre I checked out of my hotel in the morning, skipping breakfast, as I only had a few Canadian dollars left and needed to save a few to tip the parking garage valet. On my way out of Montreal, I stopped at a grocery store, one […]

Is Ignorance Really Bliss?

Issue #37 – Thursday, May 7, 2015 by Dale Everett After writing several blog posts about how we live in a slave society, sometimes I wonder if I’d be personally better off if I could somehow return to that blissful ignorance of the inherent violence of statism. Maybe this struggle for freedom is a losing […]

Libertarians Should Hang Out!

Issue #36 – Thursday, April 30, 2015 by Richard Masta Last week I was ready to throw my phone into the woods and run like an Indian down the animal trail. Barefoot and exhausted — fight or flight — I was meat for the wolves. I needed protein, sleep, and companionship. And quiet. Sometimes it’s […]

Rein in the Police, Not Protesters

Issue #35 – Thursday, April 23, 2015 by Scott McPherson Cops, not protesters, have created an atmosphere of violence. My brother once quipped, “The great thing about being a Leftist is never having to say you’re sorry.” He was talking about the propensity of those who erroneously describe themselves as “liberals” to endlessly pat themselves […]
