COUNTERREVOLUTION IN ONE STATE?
Lenin said, "Complete victory of the socialist revolution in one country is inconceivable," but apparently the government! yuck! folks of the Libertarian Party think they can have a counterrevolution in one state. AP reports:
A group of libertarians announced a project Wednesday to get 20,000 Americans to move to New Hampshire and work to transform it into a "free state" with fewer laws, smaller government and greater liberty.
...The 5,000 members have already pledged to move to the selected state, Free State Project organizers said. They hope to increase their numbers to 20,000 within two years and start transforming the state into a national model of liberty.
The Free State Project's Web site proclaims their desire for "the benefits of robust individual liberty" and denounces "the failings of the nanny state" (yeah, cops, an army, a minimum wage, a Pure Food and Drug Act, child labor laws -- who needs that crap?).
You know, guys, when the public schools are abolished, the roads are untended and full of potholes, and the police are replaced with private militias, fewer and fewer people from Boston and its suburbs are going to venture north for leaf-peeping and outlet shopping, and lots of fairly well-heeled recent Granite State arrivals are going to start thinking about moving out. And meanwhile, you guys are going to be so busy trying to keep the Christian Identity libertarians from drumming the Legalize All Drugs libertarians out of your little club that you might forget to make arrangements to remove -- and remove again -- the (massive amounts of) snow.
I really can't wait to see how this works out.
