What are your thoughts?

http://www.concordmonitor.com/Manchester-NH-Foundation-for-New-Hampshire-Independence-NHexit-secession-3029464
which was sparked by this:
http://NHexit.com 
which was sparked by, well, me.  

One thought would be that a lot will depend on how well or badly Britain does after the Brexit and how successful the "follow up" sovereignty drives are in other parts of Europe.

"NHexit" seizes on Brexit to demonstrate for Granite State independence

I saw the protest in Bedford briefly while driving by. Honked for support. :)

I suggest you add a Q&A page that addresses some of the disputed legality and responses to the typical lines of questioning like defense and money.

Also, you should remove the boilerplate about page and initial blog post that Wordpress generates.

I've just posted a demonstration event at

https://www.facebook.com/events/960538707390441/

"Aug 6  5:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Near London Bridge & Haverill Rd (111) Windham, NH

According to the link below, Trump will be at Windham High School tomorrow, Sat Aug 6, doors opening 6pm. It's pretty late to schedule a demonstration, and I'm not sure I can be there. But in accordance with the apparent #NHexit consensus that it's okay to schedule a demonstration you might not attend: Here I am doing so. Let's see how it works. If you go, you'll probably find something to do regardless. I've listed as the gathering point, an intersection about 1000 feet north of the school. https://www.donaldjtrump.com/schedule"

Also trevor in response to your msg. I put up a link on NHexit.com to the FNI's list of reasons for NH independence.

Dave, I hope you and others can attend the event in Plymouth tomorrow, Thursday, or the one in Concord, a week later, which I posted on at http://forum.freestateproject.org/index.php?topic=28491.msg299170#msg299170 . It's a liberal group that has been having much success for several years at asserting the right of local self-government and is planning ahead to change state laws and constitutions too, including that of New Hampshire, where they have a strong presence. They've worked in Barnstead, Barrington, and possibly other places. I believe their successes can be used as templates for Free Staters to advance NH Free Towns as well as lay the foundation for changing the state constitution. A video by one of the founders of CELDF, I think, states that the city of Pittsburgh, PA has adopted similar local community rights legislation which even threatens the state with something like local secession if the state opposes or tries to pre-empt its protection of local self-rule. NHExit should probably seek to collaborate with http://CELDF.org . Si? I'm planning to post some examples of the kinds of legislation they've been helping to draft for many communities which many of them have passed into local law. I'll post on the Friendly Forum.

Bro, you're not going to dissolve the union. They aren't letting go of what they have. Don't get me wrong, I'd LOVE to see some true freedom up in here, but most people (including those on this forum) aren't ready to put in the work to make it happen. You may as well quit posting links to anything relating to secession, lest you get your hopes up.
