Title: Very Interesting
Post by: lingydingy on December 29, 2003, 11:24:52 am
The scare of Communism fades giving the politically correct charged Marxist to fill the vacuum.  I have not had the time to read through this site but is this a Socialist idea?  Could someone respond with where this idea of a Free State came from.  Is there any political figures supporting this idea?  I was directed to this site through Walter Williams web page.

The Founding Fathers, perhaps? Did you see that our tag line is "Liberty in our Lifetimes"? Our "free" is not the free of socialism, but the free of freedom, liberty, personal responsibility. Please read the FAQ (http://www.freestateproject.org/about/faq.jsp') to learn more.

We are most certainly NOT socialists of any stripe, though there are a few individual Greens types who have some socialistic redistribution ideas, who otherwise are very libertarian individuals. They are not the norm or the core of the group, but we are not a strictly 'big L' Libertarian group, we are for 'liberty-oriented' individuals, so you will find a much wider range of opinion here than you would find, say, on LP forums.
