i am thinking of joining the fsp
« on: January 21, 2006, 04:46:47 pm »

i really like your statement of intent : the maximum role of civil gov. is to protect your right to life liberty and property.
i live in rochester, mn and own a small business, and i am getting sick of all the crap i have to put up with ( taxes, licenses, etc... )
why can't i just own a business and be left alone? 

health dept. license
social security
unemployment
business income taxes

anyone else know what i am talking about?

Thanks for the post, lunch spud!  I run a micro-business myself, so I have some idea where you are coming from.  The small business person is definitely part of our target audience.  Whatever you decide as joining the movement, I think we would all be grateful to anyone who helps promote the FSP among other small business people.  Are you active in your local chamber of commerce?

The federal crap won't change, at least not soon.  Socialist Insecurity, the I-9 stuff, all that shit.  No way to avoid it (yet).  Not knowing what kind of business you're in, can't say much about state regs but in most industries there seem to be less -- the food service industry has definitely a lot less rules than New Jersey though more evenly enforced than here.

Morey,

no i am not active in the chamber of commerce.  the local chamber is a joke.  we used to be members but not anymore.

ward,

i think i am a little pissed off because last week the olmsted county public health dept. sent us a bill for 778$ license renewal fee.
it made me sick to my stomach.  why do i need gov. permission in order to be in business?  yes the federal crap won't change, but the following could:

state witholding unemployment
state business licensing
health dept. inspections regulations and licensing
minimum wage

people who just turn a blind eye to this crap is what pisses me off the most.

The minimum wage is at the federal level in NH so that change would be instant for you.  With work, I hope to help you change the other things in NH.

cheesypotatow/ham,

Join us in NH!  All of us have had it with this kind of crap.  At least you'll be working alongside the fastest growing group of liberty activists around.  That will be fun, and all of us together will facilitate change.  We are already.  Also, by most every measure, NH is an amazing state already, especially when compared to where we live now!

Hey .... if you got the guts, don't pay any more taxes to the rotten government. Cut them off and then join us in NH. We welcome people who are sick of government. :)
