Eric:   Enjoyed your AK-47.net post, very eloquent!   I think we are no longer up for 501 (c) 3 though.  I didn't know you were a Vet, but thank you for being one!

Also here's another external discussion link:

I posted a note on ak47.net regarding Tims tussle with the law in FL.  It is at http://www.gunsnet.net/forums/showthread.php?s=637ce43af3f3f9a889cf12fd1702e6c3&threadid=117037

St. Louis today is having some discussion of the FSP on its forum page.  It started out as a thread about the NRA having Tim Condon arrested.

FSP discussion on Lew Rockwell blog
« Reply #49 on: June 10, 2003, 02:21:37 pm »

http://blog.lewrockwell.com/

While some positive things have been said, much of it is rather negative, mainly coming from an anarchist point of view.  It seems that many there are not convinced that the idea of replacing an existing coercive state government with a less coercive state government is morally just.

To paraphrase something I read by Thomas Knapp (and agree with), the important thing is to getting the "train" moving in the right direction (from totalitarianism toward anarchy); ultimately each individual will choose to get off the train at varying stages.

Anyway, this blog has some interesting points being made, and more importantly, further spreads word of the FSP.

Yes, the responses of most of the posters on the blog are negative; what is more discouraging is that many of them are uninformed.  You can be an "incrementalist anarchist"; what is not compatible with the FSP strategy is support for violent revolution.  Karen De Coster is pro-FSP but her comments are very timid; I fear she is intimidated by the mob mentality that develops in these group blogs.

Jason, I would encourage you to email Lew (lew@lewrockwell.com) and ask if he would post your own response to those listed by the various bloggers.  I've found that he's pretty fair about allowing all reasonable points of view to be heard.

Actually, Karen offered to post my response under her name, and I gave her permission to do that, pending a lack of response from the other bloggers.  (I emailed 'em all with my counterarguments.)

http://www.e-thepeople.org is a political discussion site, with a pretty even mix of liberals and conservatives, and a respectable contingent of libertarians.  I have written a few polls about the FSP; here are some of the results:

-------------------------------------------------

If you lived in one of the leading candidate states for the Free State Project (NH, WY, AK, MT, or ID), what would you be thinking? (45 votes)
 
Interested to see what happens 33 %
 
Unconcerned -- they will have little impact 31 %
 
Worried that needed government programs would be abolished 20 %
 
Pleased that help is on the way 16 %
 
Hopeful that they could increase liberty, but not expecting much 16 %
 
No outsiders of any political persuasion are welcome here 13%

Still active at:
http://www.e-thepeople.org/poll/10228/view?s_a=res
-----------------------------------------------------------

The Free State Project recently reached 4,000 members. When they reach 5,000, which state should they select? (97 votes)
 
Alaska 23 %
New Hampshire 25 %
Wyoming 20 %
Montana 9 %
Idaho 12 %
South Dakota 11 %
-----------------------------------------------------------

What will be ultimate result of the Free State Project (www.freestateproject.org)? (44 votes)
 
Complete success -- creation of a free society in one of the 50 states 18 %
 
Partial success -- making the chosen state the most free in the nation 11 %
 
Failure -- 20,000 members will move, but be unable to create change 23 %
 
Fizzle -- won't be able to get 20,000 liberty activists to sign up 48 %
-------------------------------------------------

The Free State Project is nearing the 5,000 member milestone, and plans to select the Free State in September. When will they reach their goal of 20,000 members? (23 votes)
 
Later this year 13 %
 
2004 13 %
 
2005 13 %
 
2006 4 %
 
2007 or later 9 %
 
Never 48 %

Right.  I would have told them all what cowardly dickless a**holes they are, but I'll be damned if I'm going to register on a nazi website.  

Those sick, sick m-f-ers.


I feel the same way!  That's why I haven't registered on Bill White's craphole website to tell him what a motherf**ker he is.  He has the nerve to call himself a "Libertarian Socialist".  There is no such thing.  That's like claiming to be a giant midget, or an ancient infant.  Libertarianism and Socialism are on opposite ends of the spectrum.  You can't be further apart.  He also happens to be a KKK supporter, and a Marxist.
