What about biased block voters?
« on: April 02, 2003, 07:47:30 pm »

I have been watching the FSP since its inception with pure admiration, but I'm very disturbed by the stradegy of New Hampshire residents joining in mass and invalidating every state, but their own.

Theoretically, 4000 people could join from NH and vote in mass for NH, while forcing whoevers left to abide by their decision.

That scares me most of all; having only several thousand FSP members moving to NH, because FSP has been taken over by NH residents.

Theoretically, it could be a problem, but in practice it hasn't, b/c we haven't seen any blocks like that joining yet, not by a long shot.  Check out the numbers posted on this thread:

And we're considering measures to make absolutely sure this sort of problem won't arise in the future.

Thanks Jason! If my college education continues as planned I think I'll be seeing you in the FreeState.
