State House candidate Emily Sandblade moved to New Hampshire from the Pacific Northwest as part of the Free State Project. Sandblade has demonstrated considerable ties to the Free State Project, including:
Prior to moving to New Hampshire Sandblade coordinated recruiting events for the Free State Project in the Pacific Northwest. Sandblade previously lived in the Pacific Northwest where she coordinated major recruiting drives with fellow Free Staters and now NH State Reps Dan and Carol McGuire to get likeminded people to join the Free State Project and move to New Hampshire.

Sandblade is a monthly donor to the Free State Project to keep its operations up and running. [Pledge Bank. FSP Admin Fund. June 2012]
Sandblade wrote a piece entitled “The Top Ten Reasons The Mafia Is Better Than The State.” [My2CommonCents. The Top Ten Reasons why the Mafia is better than the state: By Emily Sandblade. July 9, 2011]
Sandblade served on the board of the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance, a Free State Project group focused on the Legislature. The NHLA endorsed Sandblade in both 2012 and 2014, and gave her an A rating for the 2014 legislative session. [NH Liberty Alliance. Endorsements 2012; Endorsements 2014, NH Liberty Rating 2014]
Why is Emily Sandblade’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 Emily Sandblade 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]
