In this video, Vin Armani interviews Ian Freeman about the idea of concentrating liberty-minded people in one place to affect change for more freedom in our lifetime. This migration is already taking place in New Hampshire with groups like the Free State Project and The Shire Society offering assistance to newcomers. Freeman explains why New Hampshire is a perfect setting for liberty lovers.

Liberty was formally lost in America when the 18th-century Enlightenment founders made it a goal (almost a god) instead of a corollary of implementing Yahweh’s perfect law of liberty as the supreme law of the land.
What we have today in America is comparable to what the Prophet Jeremiah confronted in his day:
“For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them … from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely. They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.” (Jeremiah 6:13-14)
Today’s mantra is “Liberty, liberty!” when there is no liberty. Patrick Henry, who refused to attend the Constitutional Convention as one of Virginia’s delegates (declaring “I smelt a rat!”), understood the framers’ specious claim to liberty. Convinced the Constitution would fail to secure and protect liberty, Patrick Henry voiced his concerns to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788:
“…I say our privileges and rights are in danger. …the new form of Government … will … effectually … oppress and ruin the people…. In some parts of the plan before you, the great rights of freemen are endangered, in other parts, absolutely taken away…. There will be no checks, no real balances, in this Government: What can avail your specious imaginary balances, your rope-dancing, chain-rattling, ridiculous ideal checks and contrivances? …And yet who knows the dangers that this new system may produce: they are out of the sight of the common people: They cannot foresee latent consequences…. I
see great jeopardy in this new Government.” (Patrick Henry, Ralph Ketcham, ed., “Speeches of Patrick Henry (June 5 and 7, 1788),” The Anti-Federalist Papers and the Constitutional Convention Debates (New York, NY: Penguin Books, 2003, 2nd ed.) pp. 200-08.)
In contrast to the federalists’ failed predictions, this and nearly everything the anti-federalists forecast about the Constitution (even with the addition of the Bill of Rights) has come true. The constitutional framers could not provide their fellow Americans with liberty (nor can their disciples today) for the simple reason that blind
leaders cannot lead other blind men to safety, any more than slaves can confer freedom on fellow slaves:
“[I]f the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” (Matthew 5:14)
“While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption….” (2 Peter 2:19)
The answer to this self-imposed delusion is provided by Jeremiah two verses later:
“Thus saith Yahweh, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls….” (Jeremiah 6:16)

This is a nice idea but N. Hampshire is surrounded by libtards in all directions. How long before the socialists flood the state with both legal and illegals?
I wish N. Hampshirites all the best.
