State House candidate Luke Sacher is likely a homegrown member of the Free State Project, as it appears he first moved here when his mother purchased a second home in the area. Sacher has demonstrated considerable ties to the Free State Project, including:
Sacher describes himself in candidate profiles as a “… member of the Free State Project, a true Libertarian and Anarchocapitalist … ” [The Keene Sentinel. Luke A. Sacher, NH House, Cheshire District 11. October 23, 2014]
Sacher supports extreme Free State Project policy ideas. Sacher supports privatizing schools and “privatization of state and town highways and public services such as water/sewer, fire and police departments.” He supports 100 percent legalization of all drugs and told the Keene Sentinel that, if elected, he would consider sponsoring a bill for “legalization of all drugs.” [The Keene Sentinel. Luke A. Sacher, NH House, Cheshire District 11. October 23, 2014]
Sacher decided to run for State Representative because he was asked to by fellow Free State Project member Mark Warden. [The Keene Sentinel. Luke A. Sacher, NH House, Cheshire District 11. October 23, 2014]
Why is Luke Sacher’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 Luke Sacher 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]
