Payment sent. Look forward to seeing a homepage counter that has sum of all payments, as well as FSP matching.

I can't say as I blame Killington...that's what I'm doing, seceding, or "formally withdrawing from my association" with my town, county and New York state for many of the same reasons. My check goes out tomorrow.

donation sent.
give 'em hell

don't know if this has been posted, but there's a blurb on newsmax:

They seem to, in a round-about way, make reference to FSP

Free State Project seeks to capitalize on VT town's "secession to NH"

Fed up with redistributionist school taxes, leaders of Killington, Vermont have settled on a bold new strategy:  Secession.

Their plan is to take their town all the way out of the left-leaning New England state and join with its more conservative neighbor, New Hampshire.

Free Staters were ecstatic to hear the news and are planning a "shadow advertising" campaign to support Killington.  If the Killington bid succeeds, New Hampshire would gain a new, tax-hating municipality.  If it fails, Free Staters figure they can recruit many of the towns residents and other disgruntled northeasterners to move *themselves* to the Free State.

There are two ways to donate to the Shadow Advertising Campaign.

Paypal- Go to http://freestateproject.org/getinvolved/donate.jsp and use option #3.
Since this is the second Shadow Ad, make the donation end in .02. If you are going to donate $20.00, please make it $20.02. This will help us keep it all straight. Then send an email to me (dhillman AT freestateproject DOT org) so that we can get the ball rolling.


When sending by PayPal you can add a note in the "comments" area of the submission form.

This vote will be in March so we have a good 3 months to work this issue.

Free State Project seeks to capitalize on VT town's "secession to NH"



You know, the fact that 5,000+ FSP porcs and 1,000+ Vermonters see moving to New Hampshire as a smart thing to do MUST be pointed out in the ads. Something like "the people of Killington finally figured out what 5,306 Free State Project members already know..." or something like that. This won't just have local appeal in the Vermont media but national media as well. Can you see the headlines when a WHOLE FREAKIN' VERMONT TOWN wants to relocate to New Hampshire? It's a "hey, those porcs might actually be on to something" eureka event.

Ok, I paypal'd some and I'm not even an FSP member.  

Would be nice, once it's all said and done, to know what the campaign cost, how much was donated, and how effective it was in recruiting new members.

Oh, the FSP is planning a recruitment mailer to be sent to pro-freedom individuals all over Vermont.

[diabolical laugh begins] We might as well do the mailing in conjunction with the Shadow Ads. [diabolical laugh ends]
