Hello CT Porcs
I am moving to NH next month.  It would be good if a remaining CT Porc could take over the duties of CT Media Coordinator and Greeter. I have not coordinated any media since the vote, and, unfortunatly, have had no greeting to do, so, it is not a big deal.
I could handle this stuff from NH, but, it would be better if someone in CT was doing it.

Mary and I got a car this week, so I'm finally able to roam beyond the confines of Yale & downtown New Haven.  What that means is that I'd like to get involved in reviving a CT local group.  I've signed up at http://fsp.meetup.com to vote on a time for next month's meeting, but there may well not be enough people for that to work, so perhaps we can arrange a meeting here.

On Saturday, Sept. 18, the FSP will have a tent at the Mass-Cann 'Hempfest' on the Common in Boston, as a recruitment effort.  30,000-50,000 people will attend this event.

Only have about an hour a week at very particular times...

But would like to help out if I can.

Any ideas?

Post by: bookish_lass on October 07, 2004, 03:35:19 pm
Were you wanting to get involved in the CT local group?  It looks like they're putting together a newspaper ad.  Or were you wanting to do something on your own each week?  Here are some ideas:


You could talk to Dave Mincin dmincin@freestateproject.org, the volunteer coordinator, to see if he's got a job for you.  Or post what sorts of things you're interested in, and maybe we can find a specific task for you.  Hope that helps!

I'm pleased to announce that the Free State Project will be holding a
get-together in New Haven, CT on Wednesday December 15 at 8 PM.  We'll be
meeting at Anna Liffey's, 17 Whitney Ave, 203-773-1776.  It's an Irish
restaurant with dinner entrees and a full bar.  The purpose of the event
is mainly just to socialize, to meet our future neighbors in New
Hampshire.  However, we'll also talk a bit about more ways we can use the
New London eminent domain case to recruit freedom-friendly Connecticut
residents to relocate to NH.

Please let me know whether you're coming!  You can RSVP by email or on our
local group's website:
http://fsp.meetup.com (look for New Haven, CT)

We had our first CT local group meetup last night!  Seven people came, and conversation went on for three hours before we disbanded at 11 PM.  We're thinking about doing the next meetup in Danbury, CT on a Friday evening in the latter half of January.  In the meantime, think of ways to pull a publicity stunt or make a media splash here!  One of the group said she may be able to get us on Fox News.  So we'll see how that works out.

The next Connecticut FSP meeting will be at Molten Java Coffee Roasters in Bethel, CT on Friday January 21 at 7 PM.  The location was chosen because it's pretty central to everyone who came to the first meeting.  Before the meeting, think of some ideas for publicity & recruiting in our area.  They can be activities designed to get media attention, or simply direct publicity (an example of this would be chalking sidewalks at a park, which the DC group has done, or a leafletting).  At the meeting we'll compare ideas & decide on an activity.  For info on the meeting (such as address of venue) go here:

Connecticut Free Staters--

There will be a rally on Sunday Feb 20th at 3 PM in New London across
from Union Station to support the homeowners of that city whose eminent
domain case is shortly being heard by the Supreme Court. The FSP has done
some advertising in New London to show our support, and we'd like to have
a strong presence at this rally. Some New Hampshire Free Staters will be
coming down with flyers to hand out. The Castle Coalition will be
providing signs for us. All you need to do is show up! I'll be there
myself, so I hope to see you there. Here's more info on the event from
Fred with the Castle Coalition:

---------------------------------
    It's at the intersection of State St. and Bank St.
in New London. Therally will last about an hour and a
half at the most. It's a sendofffor the plaintiffs in
the case, so we'll talk it up, have them speak ifthey
wish, and generally make a public statement of
suipport for themand opposition to the abuse of
eminent domain and the wrongheadednessof development
plans that demand it when it is not only
unnecessary,but counterproductive. We're sending a
press release out to print,radio and TV media outlets
on Monday. After the rally any number ofpeople will
retire to one of the local restaurants or taverns.
You'd bewelcome to join us if you like. Fred

That's okay, Jason--thanks for going.  Actually, from my experience last year, I'm not that into planning for or relying on a big crowd for a demonstration.  There were only two of us, and at a very busy post office in DC that was more than enough--more people would have just meant more sitting around.  In addition, I think our low-key approach made people more comfortable talking to us, and led to less time-wasteage in arguments with Post Office employees.  (I was there to hand out flyers, not to puff up in righteous libertarian anger and get my ass hauled to jail.)  We're looking for breadth of coverage here, and we earn nothing for depth instead.  I hope a lot of people will go out solo and just be the friendly, respectful, and intelligent folks that I know we have around here.  Somewhere.  ;D

Are there any meetings that still happen in the Danbury Area for Libertarians and Free Staters?
Title: Re: Connecticut
Post by: Denis Goddard on January 02, 2007, 03:22:07 pm
There's a strong anti-CT sentiment since CT imprisoned Lauren Canario for protesting Eminent Domain.
Still, to my mind, this kind of abuse means it should be all the easier to reach our to libertarian-types stuck in CT and let them know a much freer place (and one that recently put a constitutional ban on eminent domain abuse like the one that happened in New London) is just a short drive to the North.

Tocard, I suggest working on a "shadow ad" or other media outreach to the Good People of CT.
Good luck!

I heard about Grafton and the "Free Town" Project and even of some of the issues there.  We have not made our decisions yet since we would like acreage and need more members with a financial stake that will allow our goals to be realized.   Soon I hope to get some personal invites to stay with over night or so to meet with FSP members to see where my thoughts and goals mesh.

You may want to look on these threads for:

White Mountain Land   company or something like that.  There was a group trying to get many people to each kick in money and then buy a bigger track of land.  Jnoyes... if you pm his email should work did a LOT of research on it.  He may even be in CT or MA now.

Come on up to the Liberty Forum in January.... There will be a realtor there as well.

Hi Stud,

I'm in Plymouth, MA and will be doing similar action as you, perhaps sooner. But keep me in mind. I'll help you build your place, that is, if I'm not I the middle of building my own at that precise time. I can stand a wall like nobody's bizness~!

I like your expression of CT, never had it put that way but it fits very well, nanny state like a refugee camp. Our govt officials harrass every other delivery truck with fission units, pass weekly tax increase bills to pay for their debt spending, push local ICLEI agenda 21 zoning restrictions on the masses.

Post by: LiberatedFromCT on April 21, 2013, 12:18:30 am
Thanks for the link.

I did mention NH to a bunch of people, but most were the typical neo-con / fundamentalist type that are pro-gun but anti-liberty.  One guy even said to me that the "libertarians cost Romney the election by not voting for him which is equal to voting for Obama".  Pfft, sometimes you just can't get through.

Regardless, I'm glad I went to this rally.  Good points about the rally were the Oathkeepers re-affirming the oath, which was just awesome to behold the number of people doing so.  Some people had the balls to bring in actual long guns / open carry, and many of these people are definitely going to be active resisters come confiscation time.  One speaker even announced he willfully violated the unconstitutional "law" by carrying high capacity magazines to NY and CT and dared the powers that be to try and catch him and prove it, and he called for active widespread civil disobedience, which I just found to be inspiring given the normal surrender-monkey attitude.  Another more militant speaker stated the time for discourse is past, and that we are going to have to make a choice between surrender and active actual resistance in a coming civil war, which seemed originally a tad bit extreme to many people, but in my opinion hitting uncomfortably close to the actual truth.  All the meanwhile, some oath-breaking piece of s#@% was filming the entire crowd from a balcony and taking pictures of the protest - probably putting us on a list somewhere. 

I had this weird feeling that I could not shake off... even though I'm escaping to NH, I realized that the situation has fundamentally changed in that I really do believe there is a good chance that many of the innocent people I saw today might end up in boxes next year if they are serious about fighting.  It saddens and enrages me to think that there is a very high probability that this time, it is actually going to happen - Malloy and Cuomo will not back down, and will issue the confiscation order if the Supreme Court decides to continue to ignore the lawsuits.  This time just seems so .... different.

In my opinion, anyone registering their "assault weapons" is asking for the jackboots to prioritize them as targets next year - do not be fooled by the governor's lies.  If you are in the FSP and still in Connecticut, I urge you to NOT comply with registration, and get your crap out of the state asap while you can prior to Jan 2014.

Title: Re: Connecticut
Post by: Connectisuck on April 21, 2013, 01:42:05 am
This thread (especially the post above) got me thinkin' about guns, liberty, and the world.

Things will get better, because they'll get much worse later. I'm always going to support what libertarians stand for and their political platform. I'm going to be active and get things done when I move. Those things said, I only see NH as a temporary solution. When the economy stabilises for a while, it's only to provide a small window that will enable the smart to do whatever it is they must to prepare for the hard times.

I was discussing gun rights with, of all people, a liberal. Where gun supporters of all kinds -- both neo-cos, conservatives and libertarians -- lose credibility is when they're asked to support their Second Right philosophy. Out of the three, libertarians are the least likely to stand firm, which is unsettling to say the least. It's always "because it's my right." I explained that it's about guns being the most efficient form of direct self-defence currently available. Surprisingly, they didn't do the cliche liberal thing and say that I must be pro-war and advocating nuclear weapons. In fact, I think that all WMDs and mass-murder weapons should be illegal. NO ONE should have them. No individual, no PMC, no government. Even a ghost shouldn't have them. WMDs are just that. They aren't about defence, they're about wiping entire countries off of the map, and killing millions of people, while also making things bad for their children. Then I explained why guns should be encouraged.

If I'm being attacked, and my only weapons are a nuclear missile and a syringe with a biological virus, and I used them, I'd be killing not only that person and millions of others, but myself as well. I can't save a life by launching a nuke at the person I need to neutralise. With a gun, however, I can eliminate a threat without endangering any other lives, as long as I don't think I'm hot shite and start going Rambo. Thus, the gun is the most direct, controlled means of self-defence currently available.

I personally don't have time for guns, despite having interest in concealed-carry permits, because they scream "coward". I settle things the way someone honour-bound would, with the hands and feet. However, I'm all for others having and using guns to keep their properties, peoples and selves safe.

EnslavedInCT is right. I wish that things wouldn't have to come to any armed resistance, and I'm certainly not for it if such can be avoided. I know this is a very tin-foil-ish topic because of the typical kind of resistance-minder, but they're onto something. I think it's time that people started asking the coo-coo questions. I'm not saying 2012, aliens or mind-control beams. I'm saying, people in power who have plans to keep it that way in the event of a nuclear war. People focus too much on black anarchy (or "dark rule", where there is no law and people turn into savages). People think of the future and see The Road, Children of Men, and The Walking Dead, when they should be seeing Jericho and V for Vendetta. They should be seeing excessive rule. Does anyone really believe the delusion that when things get bad that the  government will just leave? Ain't nobody in the government named Housni Mubarak, and even then he left because the military sided with the people. We're talking about an entity that has a law allowing it to do whatever it feels like to continue itself. There is no way they're going to pack up and leave if people start killing each other.

This isn't about aliens, or "god", or anything Hollywood. It's about human nature. It's about your lives. These people are in power and want to stay that way.

If you're pro-liberty, and you have a good head on your shoulders, I think you would do well to come up with some kind of solution. Move to NH, start an FSP in your area -- do something. There will be no compromise when times get hard.

You and me both buddy, end of May here.... keeping my guns, freedom, self-respect, AND getting a 50% cost of living reduction just by moving up there.  Even got a raise out of the deal haha. 

Screw these stupid communists.  Let them have their idiotic Marxist wonderland that has lowered CT's business climate to 44 out of 50 under Malloy. 

The way I see it, moving to NH is a non-violent protest and a moral decision.  My alternative is to stay in CT, refuse to comply with the registration, and get myself and probably a few jackboots killed when they come to confiscate.  Better to leave peacefully and fight this battle in a better area of operations.   :)

Good luck on the move!

Welcome Nutmeggers!
I left CT in '08, wished I left in '88.  You'll be welcome by many in NH.  There have been over 8 people from CT who had settled in our small town of no zoning.  I'm not a FSP signer but can support the FSP member's ideology of personal freedoms. If you believe in freedom and are respectful of the liberties of others NH may be that place of a better life for your families.  Most of our grandparents had left other places for a better life,  I believe that it is our turn to leave CT for the same reasons...

Short version:
Single father, fleeing CT in the next three months to chase liberty and be closer to family. Any solid advice for those who have made the plunge?

I have been working on this for longer then three months, it is just now getting down to that time frame. A large number of my friends have already, or are shortly leaving. Not much in CT these days. The government is a restrictive dumpster fire, the state economy is in the toilet, quality of life is laughable and cost of living is suffocating.
That being said, the new laws don't *just* affect you come January 1st. The ammo restrictions go into place October first.

Hello all CT and former CT peeps. We currently live in Bethehem CT. We just went under contract on a home we are buying in Hillsborough NH after 15 properties and a long search. We should have the closing by Dec 1st. My parents are coming along and leaving CT (formally of Wolcott CT ) since they suffered a devastating house fire and they are new to the FSP but are very liberty minded as well. We are very excited to relocate and I will be starting a new job with Windstream Communications at the same time. Hoping to meet many other free staters soon

We'll the move went very well. I want to take the time to thank everyone who came out to help us. Thank you. We finally are free of the communist government of Connecticut lol. Now to get settled into my new job and recover financially from the closing costs off buying a home. So far so good. NH is light years apart from CT when it comes to curtesy of the people. We are loving it here, but we/I  will have to become involved in the fight to maintain liberty as the evil ones are trying to creep their way up from commie land lol

Until recently, I too thought moving to NH would be an act of non-violent protest and a moral decision -- but House Bill 1547 (a bill which would unjustly criminalize interspecies sex involving humans) changed all that. If NH House Bill 1547 passes , then moving to NH will NOT be a moral decision, because it will be supporting a government that oppresses zoosexual people (a sexual minority) and discriminates against them. There are probably pro-zoosexuals in NH, but it certainly appears they are not in the state government. As they say, "If one of us is chained, we're all chained". People keep talking about how states like Connecticut are communistic and authoritarian -- I agree, but the problem is that NH is becoming more and more like places such as CT, and House Bill 1547 is a good example of that.

If the incredibly oppressive, unjust and unethical House Bill 1547 becomes law in NH, zoosexuals will be faced with a similar situation to what you mentioned, but in reverse -- for example: "Do I move to NH and have interspecies sex as an act of civil disobedience while worrying that the police are going to harass me, or do I move to a state that has either no anti-zoosexual law or a state with a law that is far less harsh (i.e. misdemeanor)?"
