Hi my mom just signed me up too.  I am glad mom signed me up because now I can talk more freely about issues that effect kids and how the free state project feels about those things. :)

Welcome,

I am glad to have young people here to learn about and discuss the FSP.  I this will be a place you feel comfortable asking questions and discussing issues that concern you.  I imagine that most of you wil be kids of adult FSPer's so you probably have some idea about what this is.  

This is a place where you can express your ideas, concerns, and feelings about the prospect of leaving your home and going to a new place in search of a better life for you and your family.

I hope you all have plenty to talk about.

Well,

That's quite interesting.  I never thought that a rodent could make such a sound.  I once had a rabbit, but it made no such noise.  I thank Dex for supplying those sounds and I thank Mega Joule for posting them.

It's great to see that some people's parents have their heads on straight.  As far as people I know go, it seems like everyone older than 30 has killed whatever dreams of true freedom they may have once had.

My parents will vote republican and talk about liberty until they're blue in the face, but when questioned they still favor some nanny-state things like prohibition of drugs and porn.

I have grown kids as well as younger kids and I do not always argee with their life choices but by golly I will stand behind their right to make those choices.  

Welcome to FSP.  We are glad to have you.

I hate to say this, but your parents are hypocrits (not in an offensive way, i don't even know them). Ask them what they would think about mass drug production (weed, acid, shrooms, e, etc.) in the free state. Because it is going to happen :)

My parents will vote republican

Republicrats are as authoritarian as the Demopublicans. The only difference is that the taxes are marginally smaller. Anyone who votes republican is anti-liberty. You are voting for the party who bought us the War on Some Drugs.

I totally agree with this 5pectre.  Both major parties are the same old crap they just package it slightly differently.  They both are in the business of keeping themselves in business and the people in bondage.

You're quite right about them being hypocrites.  And yes, they'd be very against drugs in the free state.

Quite right again.  The main problem is that they fully believe they're voting for liberty and freedom.  Apparently drugs just don't count, which means they don't fully grasp the implications of liberty.  To them, if they pay less taxes, they're happy.  But heaven forbid anyone else do things they don't like, or think is against "THE WORD OF GOD"...

Indeed, there is the same problem with the democrats, people pick one party and stick to it even if all the evidence points to the party doing exactly the opposite to their stated beliefs.

Apparently drugs just don't count, which means they don't fully grasp the implications of liberty.

lib·er·ty   Pronunciation Key  (lbr-t)
n. pl. lib·er·ties

   1.
         1. The condition of being free from restriction or control.
         2. The right and power to act, believe, or express oneself in a manner of one's own choosing.
         3. The condition of being physically and legally free from confinement, servitude, or forced labor. See Synonyms at freedom.
   2. Freedom from unjust or undue governmental control.

Ask them how government control of what I put into my body constitutes liberty.

To them, if they pay less taxes, they're happy.

And yet I bet they don't care about their tax dollars being used to fight the (dirty) War on Some Drugs or the War against Some Terror.

But heaven forbid anyone else do things they don't like, or think is against "THE WORD OF GOD"...

Conservatism mixed with religion, a fatal combination :)
