I haven't started college yet, I'm still a senior in my local government instruction facility.

I'm up for parole next may.  ;D

Ah, well, why not move here asap and establish residency? When do you have enough credits to earn parole? What do you plan on majoring in, anyways?

I think Overlord was referencing high school.  ;) Myself, I'm also in a similar situation... tenth grade.

At this point, I've been seriously questioning whether or not I'd like to go obtain any higher education. I'm really unsure of whether or not I could exist happily in such a restricted society.

However, I just found myself reading this site, and it sounds really, really appealing.

...And to introduce myself: hi, I'm James.

I don't think my parents would be too fond of me moving just yet, as they would like for me to attend college here in NC.  I am planning on majoring in either political science (economics, or something), or Computer Science.. or both.

My parents kind of control the $$ although I have a job and I have made a little money for myself.

Okay. Do they know about your interest in the FSP? If so, do they realize that getting involved while in college here, if you major or minor in poli-sci, would greatly expand your educational experience?

Also, are you aware that there are scholarships available for liberty oriented individuals (see other areas of this forum)?

Overlord, you could try and bug your parents to attend one of the schools up here.  We have ivy league Dartmouth and some other great schools.  I live in Keene, home of 5,000 student Keene State College.  It's a state school, but it's still pretty good.

BTW: I'm a Jeffersonian Constitutionalist, so you're probably more extreme than I am - of course you're extreme enough.  Don't worry about complying with the Statement of Intent, only a small fraction of us do  ;D

I don't think I can get into Dartmouth, but I am planning on telling my parents about the other colleges in NH. I haven't really mentioned to them how pro-FSP I am... yet.

And thanks for the scholarship tip. ;)

DOn't know your ethnicity, but Dartmouth was founded originally to educate the Indians. Today if you can prove a 1/8 or 1/12 indian heritage (can't remember exactly), you get a free ride at Dartmouth.

In terms of the amount of individual liberty? More extreme than any other place in the world, I suspect.  That's not saying much, but it should be a better place to be than all the others.   It's already at least halfway there.

Dada,  The above post mixed with your previous statement that I am surrounded by freedom loving people begs to be addressed.  I came in after the vote so I am not privy to all that was said.  I've lived in a lot of places and before I came here I always figured one american town is pretty much the same as the next.  I haven't been proven wrong yet.  

There is a slightly larger population of freedom oriented people and hopefully a slightly larger population that have taken the time to investigate exactly what freedom means.  There are just as many laws here as there are elswhere from welfare programs to zoning to building codes.
Make no doubt about it.  Moving is the easy part.  We have a lot of work to do.  Ten years from now we might be halfway there.

I don't mean to bring anyone down or anything.  I just want to make sure we're all well informed.

He is certainly right about Claremont. It has had a big government, anti-business political slant for many decades, which grew out of the mill unions back in the Roosevelt era. This is one reason why property values are so low there, so many businesses were driven out or scared away by the city government.

This is also why Claremont is an amazing opportunity for us. Its public attitude toward government and business has been turning, and it is a great town for libertarians to move to and help transform. This is not to say it will be easy, but numbers are the name of the game. THose that do will also find a significant boost in their property values as a result.... ;)

We need anarchists in this movement.

I'm becoming more and more convinced that the existence of government is a contradiction.

Government is hear to protect our rights. Yet it has to steal from us through taxation to protect those rights.

2ndly, it has a monopoly in many ways on protection and law.

I'm not an anarchist ---- I'm willing to live with a few contradictions for the time being. But after we get rid of all the socialism and privatise everything else, I'm all for minamizing government courts and police -- untill their isn't a percieved need for it anymore.

I'm also a pretty radicle decentralist.  I think NH should be split up its over 3,000 cities and towns, into citi states. If their was more competition between different jurisdictions of government, governments would be forced to be more liberty oriented because they'd have to worry about Emmigration.

The only thing the State should provide is perhaps decence from the Fed's. But maybe that would be best left to the cities and counties too. Decentralised defence is much more effective then centralised defence.

We'd be much better off if the area of the US was 100,000+ soveran citi-states instead of 50, much less 1.

My idea would be basically, no fed government and a return to town-halls and city-states for only the most pressing matters.  All other things could be handled privately.  The only thing tying the people in the country together is free trade and passage with a set of standards (weights measures, interfaces, and such).

only a small fraction of us do?

you take a poll or something?

never asked me

even if you polled al the forum users it wouldn't amount to much as most FSPers do not visit.

where do you get your data, sir?

an interested party,
