101 Reasons to Move to the Seacoast Region!
« on: March 07, 2004, 12:03:03 am »

1. Rochester is one of the towns of the Free Town Project!
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Freedom_in_Rochester/

2. The Pease International Tradeport and Portsmouth Harbor are a Free Trade Zone!
(Zone No. 81)
http://ia.ita.doc.gov/ftzpage/letters/ftzlist.html

3. One of the most concentrated areas for high-tech and biotechnology startups in the country!
http://www.nhbiotech.com/Maps/Maps.php

4. Freedom!  The Liberty Index for almost every town in the Seacoast region is between 35 and 50!
(With the exception of the towns of Portsmouth (25), Newington (25), Durham (29), Madbury (29), Lee (29), Somersworth (34), and Rollinsford (34).)
http://www.lfod.org/2003/map.html

5. The vast majority of towns in Southwestern New Hampshire rank between 20 and 35 on the Liberty Index. :-\
http://www.lfod.org/2003/map.html

6. Property taxes for most towns in the Seacoast region are relatively low at $10 to $25 per thousand!

7. The Seacoast!
What more must I add to this?  ;)  I've taken 8 VERY beautiful and very LARGE pictures of the New Hampshire Seacoast and placed them here:
http://www.ctgaming.com/files/nh/

8. The Liberty Scholarship Fund is currently based in the Seacoast region and we need your help!
http://www.lsfund.org/

9. There is significant tourism and commerce because the Seacoast region lies between Maine and Boston.

10. The University of New Hampshire is in Durham!
The UNH is proud of its advanced research programs and minimal government funding!
http://www.unh.edu/

11. The Strawbery Banke Museum is in Portsmouth.
"Named by the first settlers in 1630 for the profusion of wild berries found on the shores of the Piscataqua River, Strawbery Banke is rich with history: George Washington, Daniel Webster, John Paul Jones and John Hancock were all guests on this site."
http://www.strawberybanke.org/

Keep adding to this list!  :)

I have not seen this in the forum before?  When was it picked?  Why is everyone else talking about Grafton?  Is this in the same FTP grouping that a NH state Rep is in charge of?

ROTFLOL!

Okay then...

#12 - You'll be joining a very active and friendly group of other Porcupines in the Seacoast area. If you want to be involved, we'll get you to work right away (just ask Dave Mincin!), and with all the meetings (to get work done), parties (because we enjoy each other's company), and meet-and-greets (to welcome visiting Porcupines), your social calendar will never be empty again!

15) There are fireworks every Wednesday night all summer long at Hampton Beach.  :D

(OK, I know this is not _that_ important, but I REALLY like fireworks...  ;D)

Of course fireworks are important to liberty!  These people are exercising their freedoms.  Realizing, celebrating, and exercising one's freedom is a very important part of protecting it!

Fireworks are banned in Vermont.  :-\

I love fireworks!   ;D

I'd check number 6 if I were you. Michelle D and I compared property tax bills, and we're both paying the same thing (roughly) - $33/$1000.

I'm talking about fireworks sponsored by the town (or chamber of commerce or something...). They still have those in Vermont, don't they??

Oh.  Yeah, those state-run fireworks shows are run in Vermont.  You should have seen my Letter to the Editor of the Burlington Free Press from last year's July 4th celebrations.  It was pretty mean.  :)

I found it!  Here it is:


Fourth of July

Happy Fourth of July everyone!  I hope you had a good time watching the fireworks on Lake Champlain.  I know I did!  Especially considering the fact that I had no choice whatsoever but to watch the display since all consumer fireworks are illegal in Vermont.

Most Class C "consumer" fireworks are only legal in 18 states; 21 states allow certain types; and 11 states, including Vermont, ban most or ALL consumer fireworks.
Learn more here:  http://fireworksafety.com/statelaws/

Oh, I can just hear the politicians now.  "If this ban protects even one person from accidental death or injury then it's worth it!"  They used the same logic to ban toy guns in New York.  What ever happened to common sense in America?  And personal responsibility?  These concepts have been replaced by regulation, taxation, and frivolous lawsuits.  Why should people stop smoking when they can just try to sue Big Tobacco for billions for causing their lung cancer?

What's next?  Complete bans on alcohol, tobacco, guns, fast food, chainsaws, and coffee?  You know, sometimes people black out when driving if they've had too many cups of coffee, and "if a ban saves even one person from accidental death or injury then it's worth it!"  Oh yeah, and I heard recently that chainsaws cause 40,000 deaths or injuries in the US each year.  Let's ban those too!

If we really wanted to see a state-run fireworks show, we could go to China.  It's ironic that even Independence Day can show Vermonters and many other Americans how many of our freedoms are being stolen from us each day.

He's right. I think your map is wrong. I'll take a closer look when I have a little time.

The map is based on full value effective tax rates provided by the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration:
http://www.state.nh.us/revenue/property_tax/2002.htm

For 2002, Keene's effective rate is listed as $31.59.
