State House candidate Glen Aldrich and his wife Marie signed up for the Free State Project in 2001 and moved their family from New Jersey in 2010. Aldrich and his wife signed the early mover pledge, which was aimed at getting 1,000 Free Staters to move to New Hampshire early to establish a network for other Free Staters to follow in later years. The majority of FSP participants will not move until 20,000 individuals
have signed on for the Free State Project. Since moving, Aldrich has established the Lakes Region Porcupines and participated in other activities to grow the Free State Project movement. He is now running for state elected office. [Stuff Libertarians Like Blog. Free State Project. 1.14.13; Lakes Region Porcupines]
Why is Glen Aldrich’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 Glen Aldrich 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]
