Brian and Ieva Seaworth started purchase of their home in Pembroke in late 2006, and less than a year and a half later Brian ran for both the State House and the local Pembroke Planning Committee. While participation in local civic activities is honorable and to be encouraged, Free Staters have a notably short move-to-run time for political office. [NH Deeds. Merrimack: Pembroke.

Why is Brian Seaworth’s FSP Affiliation Important?
The ultra-extreme Free State Project voted on a state to move 20,000 people to, with the stated purpose to take over state government and dismantle it. The Free State Project seeks to create a libertarian “utopia” void of public infrastructure and common laws, and to use the power of numbers to dramatically change New Hampshire – even threatening secession from the rest of the country. Members like Brian Seaworth are actively working to help the Free State Project fulfill those goals.
 “Once we’ve taken over the state government, we can slash state and local budgets, which make up a sizeable proportion of the tax and regulatory burden we face every day. Furthermore, we can eliminate substantial federal interference by refusing to take highway funds and the strings attached to them. Once we’ve accomplished these things, we can bargain with the national government over reducing the role of the national government in our state. We can use the threat of secession as leverage to do this.” [Announcement: The Free State Project by Founder Jason Sorens]
