Hello. I just signed up as a FSP member and have also recently moved to the Iowa City area. Any activities planned?

Is there any plans of organizing in Iowa? With the nanny state we have going here, this is needed so bad! Anyone from here, please post, let's get this rolling.

Welcome, LiveFreeIowa!!  I love a first post that's about action!  Smiley

Currently, if you look at our local groups page, you'll see that the Iowa group is currently vacant.  The first step of re-invigorating a local group is getting a leader.  It looks like there are at least two of you who are interested in getting active.  Would you like to be the local group leader so I can send all interested people in the future to you?  You would be responsible for organizing meetings and activities.  There's lots of how-to on the local groups section of the website. 

EDIT

Also, as you can see on the local groups page, there's an Iowa FSP yahoo group.  Join that and see if anyone is interested in meeting up (or maybe they've all since moved to NH Smiley)

Any Iowan's out there interested in starting up an Iowa chapter of this project?  It sounds like NH is doing well, so I think we should try it here in Iowa.

First, I'm glad that you are here and want to have more freedom.

I doubt you'll get a lot of people interested in moving to Iowa for freedom. Maybe the people from Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota who don't want to move to another part of the country but still want more freedom.

It seems to be an ok state on freedom, but is only ranked #16 in overall freedom. See Freedom in the 50 states, a study of state policies and laws from 2006. Jason Sorens, who came up with the concept of the FSP, is one of the authors. I recommend you download the PDF file on this page.

http://mercatus.org/publication/freedom-50-states-index-personal-and-economic-freedom

If we had enough dedicated libertarians to do a free state project in every state, we wouldn't have needed the FSP.

Generally the purpose of local groups on this forum is to promote the movement to NH in your local area, and to meet the other people who are moving before you all move, not to start your own FSP. Oh my, I sound like a moderator!   Shocked  I'm not, though.

Seriously, though, if you decide to do it I wish you the best of luck. Personally, I will be moving to NH next year. If my family all stay in the west I might give Wyoming a try in a few years - they have a rival group and came in #2 in the vote of which state to move to in 2003.
