Perhaps this has already been covered but I thought I'd pass it along to those who missed it. I found this article today on wnd.com by Jon Dougherty:

Yep, we've just put up a link to it on the website.  The article gets a lot of facts wrong, and I emailed Jon Dougherty about those, but by and large it presents us well.

The article got me here and I joined within 15 minutes. I don't have to be hit over the head with a good thing anymore to know it when I see it.

I read the article and it provoked an extreme reaction in me.  "I gotta find out more about these people, and do it right now!"  I thought I had died and gone to a constitutional  tea party in heaven!

Don't I have to achieve senior poster status before anyone will take me seriously?

heh heh  I know, there are some errors there!  I contacted the author and he said he at least changed Jan's gender (he's a man).  Jan *Helfeld* (note proper spelling - another error in the article) is just a very eager FSP member from Virginia.  His essay quoted from in the article can be found here:
http://freestateproject.org/beststrat.htm
He doesn't claim to be the founder or anything like it; I guess Jon Dougherty just assumed that!

Nah!  What makes you think anyone takes senior posters seriously.  

Welcome aboard!

Just used to the status quo I suppose. I suppose you get taken seriously because of that weapon in your photo ;)

Yeah that WND article led me to this site.  For years I've thought about how great it would be if there was another New World or somewhere like minded people who love freedom could go and live.  I couldn't believe it when I read that WND article and came straight away to this site and I thought about it for, oh... 3 or 4 seconds before I signed up.  Then I started reading.
