Well heck, I read one time it was going to be in Chattanooga, the next time it was to be in Nashville, and now it is back to Chattanooga.... ???

Since it is in Chattanooga, and I have a son who lives near there, could be a good excuse to go visit him.... ;D

I've not yet met another FSPer in person, and would be interested in doing so.  I've actually not yet signed on to move, and thus am not technically an FSPer.  However, I do support the cause and the mission, and would be interested in speaking with anyone who has made it so far as NH and can offer a first hand comparison of our states.

I'm trying to go to Porcfest too!  :D  It's been a good minute since i've made it out of the state for more than a day...i think it will be so good for my brain!!!  I'm looking forward to meeting everyone.  This is the first time i've ever taken part in a forum or message board.  It will be strange to see how everyone compares in reality to the impressions I've made.

Hello. I have been out of the loop lately. Been very busy coordinating Badnarik's campaign for Knox County and trying to get settled in with a new job. I will be serving as an editorial assistant on the East Tennessee Business Journal. Once the election is over, I am going to focus my efforts and time on two fronts: the Liberty Dollar and FSP. I will probably move to New Hampshire within the next five years and open my own business.

I will get back in touch with you after the election is over. Feel free to check out the article that the East Tennessee Business Journal did when Michael came to Knoxville. http://www.etbj.com/archives/2004/07jul/story.php?x=lpPresCandidate

Hello Everyone,

I am the new TN Group Leader.  

I am busy working for Badnarik right now; however, things are moving ahead for this group.  

1. A large number of flyers are being printed and stored while some are going up at west TN colleges.
2. A large number or homemade and old election signs (yes, you can reuse these with some creativity) are being gathered and created.
3. Chalking has already started and will expand.
4. Cards are being designed and will be produced.

If you live in or near TN and want to help with any of these things, or anything else, please IM me.

Evend though it is a LP meeting, come on down and we will sit in the corner and talk about the FSP.   ;D

You are a wild one.  Really, though, as of yet, there are no planned statewide FSP meetings for TN.  There has been some talk of possible future meetings in Nashville and East TN, though (see the TN yahoo group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/TN-FSP/ ).  Also, keep in mind that there is a NC/SC/East TN Local Group-
http://www.freestateproject.org/community/localgroups/#Carolinas
I see that there might already be monthly meetings in Raleigh.  Try contacting Chris (the group leader).

You seem to be in the know with the TNLP.  Tell me, when (and where) is the TNLP state convention?

Not sure if it is concidered a state convention, but there is a meeting in Cookesville this weekend to discuss TNLP bylaws and to make up a "things to do" list.

Thanks for the tip.  Nah, that's not a state convention, or at least what I was talking about.  I meant the yearly state convention.

Local activity update- March 14th 2005


1. A large number of flyers are being printed and stored while some are going up at west TN colleges.

Flyers and stickers are still being put out at West TN colleges.

Quote
2. A large number or homemade and old election signs (yes, you can reuse these with some creativity) are being gathered and created.

I planned on several very small scale rallies for last month with modified 2004 election signs and dry erase chalk boards at busy innersections last month; however, they were rained out.  Hopefully, I can start these in the coming weeks.

Quote
3. Chalking has already started and will expand.

I've been told that a West TN university has been chalked and will continued to be chalked.  I'll try to expand this program to Beale Street.

Quote
4. Cards are being designed and will be produced.

I have produced several different flyers and place cards.  These flyers and cards are designed to get people excited about the FSP and the freedom that might come with it. 
I have flyers that are the size of regular printer paper, cards that are the size of bus. cards, and cards 1/3 the size of bus. cards.  I also have long thin sheets that fit under car wiper blades.

Also, I am developing a Media CD that has very positive video and radio interviews, NH photos, the FAQ, and 101 Reasons to move to NH.  I am also making DVDs that just have video.

Again, If you live in or near TN and want to help with any of these things, or anything else, please IM me.  The FSP needs your feedback and help.

« Reply #11 on: March 16, 2005, 04:21:26 pm »

I am excited to let yall know that the TN-FSP will have a table at the 2005 LP TN Convention.  The table will be there all day on Saturday April 9th 2005.  Please show up if you are a LP TN member and tell your other members about how great things are and will be in NH. 

I will be in town all day so even if you are not a LP member, show up and I'll give you tons of FSP flyers, cards, bumper stickers, and media CDs to hand out.  IM me if you want to meet in Murfreesboro or Nashville and get the FSP info on or around April 9th 2005.

Here is the info from the LP TN website-

The 2005 LPTN Convention will be held at the Doubletree Hotel in Murfreesboro, TN, on April 8-10.

At this time it is 50/50 if I go to the TN LP conference.

Would only go down for Saturday.


Come one, you can make it  ;)  I'll drive there Sat. morning and drive back Sat night (its 4 hours each way).  Remember, if you come, I'll give you tons of FSP stuff that you can later give out.  And if you don't already have a FSP shirt, you can get one.

TNLP- Around 30-40 people showed up and there were only two vendors, the Free State Project and ThinkLibertarian.com (I bought a cool shirt that says Democrats and Republicans Both Suck from this guy and people have already positive comments on the shirt) / Libertarian Yellow Pages.  Around six of the people were FSP members and another six or so said they would be FSP members if NH was not so cold.  What is the answer to this comment/question?  I handed out several local group kit CDs, a dozen bumper stickers, a t-shirt, and lots of flyers.  Several members committed to spreading flyers around their town, and even one non-member said he would spread some flyers.   I had a laptop that ran the Chronicle video for the 1st half of the convention and a scrolling version of the 101 Reasons to Move to NH for the 2nd half of the convention that went over well.

Tax Day- I stood at the Cordova, TN Post Office from 10:20 pm to 11:45 pm. I was very friendly and nicely dressed. I managed to hand out 30 or so anti-tax flyers. 1 person asked if I was a libertarian and several people thanked me ect. I stood a few feet from the door and only gave out flyers to people that were not busy when leaving. After being questioned 3 times, I was asked to leave at 11:45 pm.

Also, a couple people put up flyers at Southwest TN Community College and chalked FreeMe.org (the short version of the FSP website) in all empty class rooms last week.

next planned activism- Chalking, putting up stickers, and handing out flyers at the Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival on Saturday April 30th.  If you going to be at the Music Festival (Friday, Saturday, or Sunday) and want chalk, stickers, or flyers (the small ones to hand out or the larger ones to put on cars), IM or email me.

A ½ dozen of the people were FSP members and another ½ dozen said they would be FSP members if NH was not so cold.  What is the answer to this comment/question? 

I wouldn't try to counter this argument. We all set our own priorities. I believe that as liberties fall away, these people will become more uncomfortable. The relative liberty in NH looks more and more comfortable as time goes by. Our goal isn't to convince people to put liberty over comfort, it is to make them aware of NH as one of the few spots where freedom is still being fought for. When the time is right they will start migrating, with or without the FSP.
