More bad luck for Ky. Free Stater

BEVERLEY WANG

Associated Press

LANCASTER, N.H. - Fate has not been kind to Randall Wolfe.

Wolfe, the 20-year-old Corbin, Ky., man who planned to walk 1,000 miles to join the Free State Project's 'Porcupine Freedom Festival,' injured his foot and then was robbed at a campsite 350 miles into his journey. So he took his car.

Friday night, Wolfe totaled his purple Neon when he hit a moose as he made his way through Lancaster, the site of the festival.

"It was so tall that we couldn't see it until it was an inch away," Wolfe said. "My windshield is now touching my steering wheel."

Bits of moose hair stick out of Wolfe's smashed windshield. The spray-painted hood is crumpled. So is the vehicle's roof, which looks like it was smashed by a falling tree.

"God hates me," said Wolfe, pausing to take a drag from a cigarette. "I've been on my own since I've been 17 and every last minute of it's been hell."

Wolfe is now homeless. He forgot his tent in Kentucky and planned to stay in his car, but that is impossible now. He said he can't go back to Kentucky for legal reasons. He also lost his job as a Taco Bell manager-trainee when his bosses read about his Free State plans in an Associated Press report, which said Wolfe wants to decriminalize marijuana.

"I got some change and that's all I got," he said.

Wolfe said the vehicle is insured under his grandmother's name and he hasn't been able to get in touch with her. He has no money and can't afford to buy more time credits for his cellular phone.

"First I put a hole in my foot, then I put a hole in my car," he said.

Wolfe left Kentucky May 23, intending to arrive in New Hampshire in time for the Porcupine Festival. He hurt his foot in West Virginia in early June. In excruciating pain, he said he walked and crawled along the side of the freeway until he reached a rest stop.

"I passed out on a bench with my stuff lying next to me. I woke up and my stuff was gone," he said. A friend came and drove him home, he said.

All this trouble has Wolfe wondering if the Free State Project is worth it, but he still intends to move to New Hampshire eventually.

"No matter what, I will be eventually living in this state, but right now, it's not meant to be," Wolfe said.

He brightened briefly as he recalled arriving in New Hampshire, which may become home to thousands of libertarians in the Free State Project within the next few years.

"I definitely felt a lot freer as soon as I crossed that border."

I think Randall's making sure the movie made one day about the FSP will have some comic elements to it.

Randall needs a job and a roomie so he doesnt have to leave NH for the time being...might as well make the move now and avoid future travelling (accidents)

Is there a more persistent member of the FSP?

Thanks for everything, Randall.

I think that we might want to send Randall into the socialist movements so he can bring them some bad luck.

All joking aside, you have to admire Randall's persistance and dedication to the FSP. In spite of all of his bad luck, he has the nicest attitude.

Randall... THANKS for everything.

You're going to be a battle hardened veteran of the FSP :)

Kind of like Paul Revere's ride but with a moose and thief added in.  I do appreciate your work though.  My hat's off to you, Randall.

I personally believe that the moose sacrificed himself for the greater good of the group to stop selfish individuals like Randall from coming to NH to enslave the homeless and eat babies. [/sarcasm]  :P

LOL, well anyways...Randall, all I can say is you rock, and I wish you the best; and it definitely will be worth it all in the end.

I believe there is now a rumor going around that this moose was a member of the Million Moose March... and it sacrificed itself to demonstrate against the Free Staters who are hunting them...   What? Those aren't Free Staters?  Those are New Hampshire natives, with licenses and guns??  Oh...  never mind.  It MUST be the Free Staters' fault, somehow.  ;D

Gawd! I almost spit out my drink when I read that!

That is one of the funniest things I have read in a long time, Steve!.

But I met Randall this weekend, AND saw a (digtal) picture of the car. There is NO WAY anyone should have been able to survive that. The car looks like a V from the front.

The way I figure it, with the Christian, Atheist and other gatherings scheduled for Sunday morning, we had our bases covered.  ;)

RANDALL ROCKS!!!!!!

You Thought You had a Rough Day

Fate has not been kind to Randall Wolfe of Corbin, Kentucky.

The 20 year old planned to walk 1,000 miles to join the free state project's ``Porcupine Freedom Festival'' in New Hampshire this weekend. But Wolfe injured his foot and then was robbed at a campsite 350 miles into his journey. So he took his car.

Wolfe wrecked his car on Friday night when he hit a moose as he made his way through Lancaster, the site of the festival. Wolfe is now homeless. He forgot his tent in Kentucky and planned to stay in his car, but that is impossible now.

He said he can't go back to Kentucky for legal reasons. He also lost his job as a Taco Bell manager-trainee when his bosses read about his free state plans in an Associated Press report, which said Wolfe wants to decriminalize marijuana.

He brightened briefly as he recalled arriving in new Hampshire, which may become home to thousands of Libertarians in the Free State Project within the next few years.

Please tell me that is an over-simplified version of the real story, or Randall Wolfe is going to have a nice change in fortune with a potential settlement with his former employer.
I know, because I spent days in a university law library during one of my business law classes researching legal cases where people were fired for their political beliefs,  and the employer lost everytime.  Granted, most every case I read dealt with Communist Party members who lost their jobs, still, it remains plain illegal to fire employees over political beliefs, period.
And whether or not we agree that government has any right to meddle in the right of employers to choose whom they may hire, allowing the rare blessings of bad laws to restore good law is justified.

Though, not sure Randall really does have much of a case:

He should settle out of court with them for three mixed burritos, Three large drinks, and two fries a day, to be picked up at any New Hampshire Taco Bell. :)

Oh yeah, and a new car. ;)
