The Libertarian Party of Hawaii is having their annual convention at the Ala Moana Hotel in Honolulu on June 5th.  If any Porcupines are willing to man an FSP table at the convention, please get in touch with me at events@freestateproject.org .  And no, the FSP will not cover your airfare to Honolulu, so Aloha Porcs are encouraged to volunteer.   Wink

Thanks, Rob!  If you hear about any events on your island that you think would be a good place to look for new FSP members, please shoot an email to events@freestateproject.org .

FYI, we had another Hawaiian member at our last Merrimack Valley Porcupines meeting in Manchester, New Hampshire a couple of weeks ago.  Smiley

Will do. 

Any chance you could email me a list of the email addresses of the Hawaii FSP members?  I've only got a couple so far. 

Thanks,

Greetings Free State Project Porcupines and Freedom Advocates!

My name is Rob Rolen and I’m organizing a Local Group for the Free State Project in Hawaii.   I am writing to tell you about the fun we plan on having together and share with you some of the latest news from the Free State Project and the Hawaii libertarian party.   

We plan on meeting regularly (probably once a month) at a location and time chosen to maximize the group’s total enjoyment and the number in attendance.   All of the members meeting suggestions will be emailed out every month.  Each member can then allocate a percentage of their vote to each suggested get-together along with the probability of them being able to attend that particular get-together. 

Each get together will be a different experience.  One might be a trip to the theater to see “V for Vendetta” or another freedom rousing film possibly followed by pizza and beer at Magoos.  Some meetings might even include a little light local activism to get us warmed up for the Free State.  Others might be a potluck or movie at my place interlaced with lively discussions and accounts of FSP successes from visiting New Hampshire FSP members.  My hope is that we’ll be able to introduce many new freedom lovers to the Free State Project  https://secure.freestateproject.org/join.jsp and have a blast doing it. 

Right now, the FSP is being spearheaded by 7,148 freedom loving people who have signed a Statement of Intent indicating:
a.   that they will move to New Hampshire, the state already properly designated.
b.   that they will work toward a society in which the maximum role of non-voluntary government is the protection of individuals' rights to life, liberty, and property.
c.   That they will move to New Hampshire as expeditiously as possible and absolutely within five years once 19,999 other people have also signed on. 
Some FSP members, such as myself, don’t want to wait for 20,000 signers and have decided to help jump start the Second American Revolution by signing the First 1,000 Pledge at http://www.pledgebank.com/first1000  which states that,
"I will move to New Hampshire by 12/31/2008 where I will work to bring about a society in which government’s maximum role is protecting life, liberty, and property but only if 999 other liberty minded individuals will too."
Given the successes of the 402 FSP members already in NH, I’m confident that huge advances could be made with far less than 20,000 activists and I want to be a part of that First 1,000 that really gets the ball rolling. 
As for this month, I’ld like to heartily suggest that everyone meet up at the annual Hawaii Libertarian convention on Sunday June 4 at the Ala Moana Hotel http://www.alamoanahotel.com/  in the Carnation Room from 9 AM to 5 PM with the feature speaker, Judge Jim Gray at 12:30.  I’ve attached a newsletter to this email that has more details.  You can also get the monthly Hawaii LP newsletters at:  http://www.libertarianpartyofhawaii.org/    Some time during the day I’ll be giving a short speech/discussion-session on the Free State Project and my recent month in New Hampshire.  I’ll have some FSP bumperstickers and other merchandise to give away.  Slap one of those on your bumper and you’ll be the envy of all your libertarian/anarcho-capitalist friends.   

You could give a short speech at the convention on the topic of your choice as well.  It should be a great event with a decadent buffet at noon. 

Please email me ASAP for the $25 reservations and the hours you plan on attending.  If the $25 is a concern, please email me so that we can arrange for you to come anyway.

If you have any ideas for things to do after the convention or for the next get-together (perhaps for the more adventurous, Galaxy Club the evening of June 9th?), please include them in your email.  Also please include your latest contact info and address so that we can try to pick spots that are close to everyone.  And don’t forget to forward this email to all of your freedom loving friends (go ahead and include all your socialist buddies too).  The more people we can get involved the more enjoyable the parties will be and the faster we’ll get to 20,000. 

There are several ways to keep informed with what we are doing locally.  Perhaps the best way is to join the FSP forum http://forum.freestateproject.org/index.php?topic=6203 and post in the Hawaii local group section (where this message will also be posted).  Of course you can always call or email me: robrolen@gmail.com  808-222-5351.   

Sincerely yours,

Rob Rolen

P.S.  You may have received this email because you provided your email address to the Free State Project.  If you would prefer to not receive any further communications from me, please send me a short email or call me and I will promptly remove your email address from my mailing list.

For those who want to hear a great podcast on freedom and the FSP take a look at: freetalklive.com or email me and I’ll send you the files.

There's been some discussion of the FSP and Hawaii over on this forum:

Drop a line or two.  It would be nice to have a few more FSPers contributing.

Good evening freedom lovers,

Just wanted to remind everyone that we're going to be having a blast tomorrow (Sunday) at the 2006 Annual Libertarian Convention!  Come on down to the the Ala Moana Hotel near the Ala Moana Mall.  We'll be in the carnation room from 9:30 to about 5PM with a great lunch buffet, amazing speakers, and tons of mouth watering snacks. 

I'll be trying to get everyone who comes through the doors up to date on the latest exciting developments in the project that is currently the most promising hope for liberty in our lifetimes, the Free State Project.

I managed to get on 97.5FM KHNR Friday morning on "Equal Time" with Fred Hemmings, the State Senate Republican leader and get the word out about the convention and the new FSP local group (I've attached an mp3 of it).

He wants to do a full show on libertarianism this coming week!!!!  That could mean two hours of radio airtime on the FM dial, maybe more.  I'm talking about thousands of listeners here.  Anyone with decent public speaking and debating skills want to help me out here?

Thanks,
Rob

P.S.  Here is my earlier email with more details about the local Free State Project group that's starting up and the Convention this Sunday.  Can't wait to see you there. Wink

P.S.S  Loved your website Lehr.  Keep it up.  I don't have you on my Free State Project members list.  Are you sure you signed up properly?   http://citizenduquesne.org/

Some time during the day I�ll be giving a short speech/discussion-session on the Free State Project and my recent month in New Hampshire.

Great job lining that up, Rob!  Hopefully you'll convince a few more Hawaiian Libertarians to join us.

How'd it go?
How many people were there?

Is this still on? I'm not the guy for the job, but I hope you can get on somehow, anyhow.

Be sure and remind all the Libertarians about the scope of the LP acheivements after 35 years of work in the general US population (about nothin' , aside from a consistently impotent 3% of the vote) and the acheivements of the FSP with less than 1% of its starting point even being hit!
For a quick list of our real, demonstrable acheivements in NH to date, see:

An update on the convention and future FSP local group meetings will be delayed a few days due to an abuse of police authority that currently has me fighting an "obstruction of government business" charge.  Apparently that is what you get charged with for casually conversing with someone being ticketed by the police or attempting to record from a distance the polices' detaining of a dangerous bicyclist riding without lights and the proper permits and the subsequent theft of his bike by said public servants.

(Why did my Creative Zen Micro Mp3 player harddrive have to die shortly after that?  I was just figuring out how to use the record feature.  You'ld think fortune would smile on me a little more under such circumstances.) 

I had no idea the police here were so power crazed.  I've learned my lesson.  I won't get sidetracked by such distractions again. 

Suffice it to say for now that it was the biggest turnout the LP here had ever seen, a couple dozen new FSP friends signed up, found several potential early movers, and got a commitment from the LP governor and vice governor candidated to go on that radio show with me.   Should be fun.  One's an immigrant from beloved communist China and the other is a hilarious standup comic with an unusual background.   The Senator has no idea what he's gotten himself into.
