Free State Project “Honorary” Members are those individuals who have worked to support the growth of the Free State Project in New Hampshire, and who actively participate in numerous Free State Project activities. The designation is used rarely and only when an individual has demonstrated considerable ties and support for the project. State Senate candidate Lydia Dube Harman grew up in and around New Hampshire, but has demonstrated considerable ties to the Free State Project. Dube Harman:

Why is Dube Harman’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. Honorary members like Lydia Dube Harman 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]
