Jones signed the Free State Project declaration of intent, then moved from Tennessee to New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project. Signers of the Free State Project declaration of intent agree to move to New Hampshire and work toward the FSP’s utopian goals of dismantling government. Once 20,000 people have signed declarations of intent, all signers have agreed to move to New Hampshire within 5 years. [Fosters Daily Democrat. Letter to the Editor by Laura Jones: Why I signed the FSP Statement of Intent. August 7, 2011]
Jones is frequently cited on Free State Project forums as a “Free Stater” State Representative. [The Free State Project.freestateproject.org. Accessed October 2014]
Jones was endorsed in 2012 and in 2014 by the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance, a Free State Project Group focused on the state legislature. [New Hampshire Liberty Alliance. org/2012/endorsements; nhliberty.org/2014/endorsements, Accessed October 2014]
Why is Laura Jones’ 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 Laura Jones 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]
