FSP on TV
« on: August 08, 2002, 09:10:25 pm »

This just in... Apparently Walter Williams was a guest on "Hannity and Colmes" tonight and mentioned the Free State Project.  Can anyone confirm this?

I stopped watching that show about a year ago because I absolutely cant stand Shawn Hannity.  But after I read your post I headed down to seven eleven and picked up a Double Gulp of liquid death  :P  :-X to ensure I can stay awake until 2:00 am when it repeats.  8)

Yes, he was.

In fact, that is how I learned about the organization and the website.

After seeing the segment with Walter Williams, I hoped on the computer  and went to the website. I've been reading since.

It was more than a mention, but what I found most interesting is that in speaking of the project, Williams said, *we*.

  Fermentation is complete. The FSP is now a secession movement.

Due to a lack of funds and tax thieft my satillite is off ,or i'd be glued to t/foxnews network,but the first time i ever heard of Walter williams was when he was filling in for rush limburger and he had mentioned something about putting liberal democrats on one side of the country and conservitives on the other and seeing who lasted longer,just the thought of that very idea kept a smile on my face for hours(i rarely ever smile),but i intended to call my local clone talk radio station and get a free plug for the  FSP.

Walter Williams is a great, libertarian, black economist.  He teaches at George Mason (though I believe he's semi-retired now).  He's not a signed-up member yet.  I think he would like to stay at George Mason, which has a great environment for libertarians in its economics department.  But who knows?  If he decides to retire, and we are still growing rapidly, I imagine he will sign up.

Walter Williams is how I found out about the FSP. I've read his stuff for a while now and when I saw his face on C-Span last week whilst flicking about the telly I stopped to listen. He mentioned the FSP on national TeeVee at that time too.

Methinks a lot of folks have had the idea that like minded Libertarianish people need to get together to implement their ideas, I certainly have held such thoughts. But it looks like Jason is the one who has taken an idea bandied about by many and run with it, and, perhaps, will make it work.

Three cheers for you Jason, Hurrah, hurrah, hurrah!

Ack!

Perhaps one day people will refer to me as a "great, libertarian, baldheaded so-and-so". Maybe I am being PC sensitive, but there is that label thingy again.

Sorry Jason, can't have people think I am sucking up to you, LOL!

Just wondering, what is Ron Paul?  I've heard he's a libertarian but when I goto his website it says he's a Republican.  Is he pertending to be a Rep. to get votes, or what?

He is a member of the Republican party but many libertarians admire him for his libertarian principles.  He did leave the Republican party briefly to run as the LP candidate for president in 1988.

Basically that is it.

He won as a Republican, changed to Libertarian and lost his seat, then ran again as a Republican and won.  At least that is what I've been told.

If you look at voting records he is VERY much libertarian.

Thanks, that clears things up.  Hearing his name in two completely different contexts can get confusing.

I noticed that the official FSP member tally has taken a sudden surge to 751.  Last time I checked (a week or so ago) it was still in the 500s.  Can anyone (Jason?) confirm whether this recent spike is directly related to the Walter Williams article featured recently on WorldNetDaily and LewRockwell.com and/or his TV appearance?  It's really helpful to know which marketing efforts are the ones that are translating into tangible results.
