Free State Project Members, If you could tell/share 1 thing with "Prospective Participants" about this group/movement, what would it be?

I would tell them there is tremendous appeal to being around free-staters above and beyond all the activism. There are so many fun social activities, such a great professional network developing and just in general a great community to be a part of. There are so many different criteria for measuring success and the FSP is already a success in my mind.

It's really awesome (and important) to focus on short term changes, but it's a long term project.  

The argument:  "If we can't fix it now what means that we can long term?" isn't actually an argument.  It's just a cop out.

Long haul.   ;D

Mine would have to be how fantastic and (almost unbelievable) it is to meet one after another, who all agree with you (in principle).

It's life as you thought it should be, it seems so easy to have others who agree, all around you, but in reality, this world is hard to come by, UNLESS, you LIVE IN New Hampshire (that is).
