What about placing ads in the classified sections of smaller local papers? Metroland in Albany, NY or Village Voice in NYC. Their rates are pretty cheap, and are generally read by a younger, less rooted demographic.

Maybe the committee should come up with a few standard ads (paragraph wordings) that anyone is welcome to run in their local paper as a donation to the cause.

How about:

"The Free State Project is a plan in which 20,000 or more liberty-oriented people will move to a single state of the U.S. to secure there a free society. We will accomplish this by first reforming state law, opting out of federal mandates, and finally negotiating directly with the federal government for appropriate political autonomy. We will be a community of freedom-loving individuals and families, and create a shining example of liberty for the rest of the nation and the world.

Let's look at Internet news "papers".  Starting with World Net Daily.  Most people who read these news services already have a trait in common with FSP--distrust of the Feral Gummint and its propaganda ministry (National Media).

Worldnet Daily is insanely expensive, FYI.  *Minimum* ad package is $600/month.

Here's a resource for college paper ads and press releases... too expensive initially, but something to think about.

How bout I just write a FSP article and then submit it to the LP News?

The LP News is looking for a staff writer anyway - so hell, why not?

I could actually work on two separate stories - one for my paper and another for the "national" press.


The Associated Press picks up all sorts of crap.

I don't know about you guys, but I seem to gravitate towards the rear of the local freebies. These are typically inexpensive, and receive alot of circulation. If no one is oppsed (Hey, I'm new here, gotta be humble, right?), I would like to use something along the lines of:

"Restore your rights, live in Liberty. You CAN have the American Dream"

 However, I would probably shorten it up a bit. If this is "doable", I can place an ad next week.

Letters to the editor are free :)

And hey, why not start with the paper I write for:

Editor@elliscountypress.com


We just ran the Walter Williams article that mentioned FSP, so editorials would be good.
