ktrp, i am not moving to NH, but love the idea of the free state project. Havig a state that is libertarian and proving to the rest how well it works
is a stroke of genius and a testament to the long haul that Libertarians are commited too (rather than a short revolution). I honestly beleive that
most of middle america likes some things that both parties have to say, and the Libertarian alternative most accurately defines their true beleifs.
Fiscally conservative, socially liberal.
As to kaoszero" some call him socialist, some anarchist", could you pick two more diametrically opposed descriptions? Anarchists are the farthest
from socialists I can thing of. Which is why i never understood 'chumbawumba's claim to be an anarchists commune. That is an oxymoron. Anarchists
are like Outback Steakhouse="no rules, just right". Socialists are like " no matter how hard one works, we all get the same benefit" Great for a
small group, terrible for an economy. Maybe your point was to show how hard your convictions are to pin down, but some advice....pick at least a
personal philosophy (not neccessarily a label). But really figure out what you stand for, and persue it.
I personlly stand for free trade, freedom, pulling your own weight, and making your own way in this crazy world. I stand for freedom for everyone,
which includes freedom to excel, and freedom to fail and pay the consequences. Freedom for the lazy to get their just desserts, and freedom for the
hardworking/innovative to reap their just rewards.
