Oh wow!  Thanks a lot, yer MAAAAAJisty!   >:D

Bottom line, we've got lack of jobs and infighting.

The solution to both is to move out to the seacoast April/May and get some of the work available here.

If you choose anything other than non-aggression then you are just as bad as a statist and why on earth would someone opposed to the war you suggest decide that you're a friend to the movement?

you don't have to like anarchy.  You have to live with it, especially since it does nothing to harm you.  On the other hand, small government = small tyranny that some people might not like either.  Problem is with that scenario it's usually assumed that everyone wants it and it will then be stuffed down the throats of others.

There's THE FSP, and just... fsp's.  Any state migration (Wyoming is next biggest, with over 100 movers, then Montana, Alaska, and the southern groups).  Unfortunately, the southern group never got together and committed to one state, so so much for that.

My main concern is identifying those issues that are causing some of our movers-in to become movers-out.

Those that moved here were joking themselves into believing Wyoming to be a free mans state.  It's Neo Con heaven and has little to offer, unless you are in the oil or mineral business.  The Feds and the State own most of the land and what little is available to the common man is the poorest of all possible.

I dunno, some of the Wyoming folk seem to feel that the huge area alone gives them more freedom.  It's just impractical for code enforcement officers, tax collectors, and officers to get out to some of those areas.  Granted, some of northern New Hampshire is just as rural, but the drive time is not as long.

Many of the early anti-federalists were accused of being anarchists, in part because they believed that the national gov't's ONLY role was keeping us from getting a foreign gov't on this continent.

I'm not sure that you and I have the same definition of tyranny, but different people are free to think differently.

Why did you move from tyrants 1,000 miles away to have 1,000 anti-tyrants one mile away?

Code enforcement - nada - down in CO or in a really, really BIG city.

Tax collectors - nada- you're thinking of NY or NJ maybe - not the west

Police officers - way too many. We already have in our little county - City, County, State officers plus BIA, DEA, ATF, FBI, ICE, CBP, USS - and a lot of retired officers.  Freedom is a state of mind, because in reality you're never free until you're toes up.
