Well, the reason those states had higher numbers was that they had higher populations. :)  You'll note that on the thread I also have per capita figures, which are very even across states.  I do plan to update the figures as soon as I get the time.

I guess I should have looked at the others before I spoke... I've been considering ways to get some publicity for FSP here locally, and I have a few ideas... I've got to talk to a couple people with some connections I don't have, then I'll broadcast it if it is possible...   there is a large population of folks here in my area who would agree at least in principle, and some would be willing to join FSP I know, the problem is getting the information out to them... I'm working on it.

The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void. . .unconstitutional law bears no power to enforce, it purports to settle as if it never existed, for unconstitutionality dates from the enactment of such a law.

I have yet to see evidence from a credible source that would indicate it was the Feds rather than the Davidians who did most of the annihilating at Waco.  

The FedGov has done plenty of *real* stuff that is bad and well documented.  That makes it unnecessary for us to add myth to the proven reality.

Dada Orwell, I think most people who looked into the matter would disagree with your contention. And even if what you say were true, the events leading up to the annihilation were wholesale violations of the Davidians civil rights.

It is pretty unlikely a free state would face anything of that magnitude, though. The Davidians and Weavers did not die in vain; the government took a huge setback in those raids because a huge number of people had their eyes opened. Subsequent events (Montana freemen, etc.) prove the feds have tamed down their tactics considerably.

On the initial posting, the question that Scoobie Snaxxx raised - there is nothing stopping people from starting a CSP (Conservative State Project). In fact this is the way the nation should go - socialists move to places like Vermont, libertarians to the FSP states, conservatives to CSP states, etc. Then see which one works best! (I didn't read the whole thread so I don't know if this point was already raised.)

Once we have the 20,000 people and we move to the state, will there be some sort of additional outreach to local residents?

There's been some discussion of this, and I've seen general agreement that we need to do what we can to blend into our new state communities, foster opportunities (both economic and social), and also work with existing political infrastructure and community groups (churches, clubs, etc...).

There's not so much that we can plan in any detailed fashion at this point of course because we do not yet know what state we're going to be choosing.  Once we know that, we can plan more specifically, but even then a lot of what happens will depend upon how we operate in the target state:  as members of an existing party, forming a new party, local and regional "cells," business ventures, "activist" events, and so on.  Those are some of the options that we'll have to consider.

For more info on discussions about how to proceed with community affairs, etc., see the following link:
