Hull 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. [Free State Project. First 1,000 Pledge. 2003-2006]
Hull is part of the Free Town Project that has attempted to take over the municipal government of the town of Grafton. The Free Town Project is an offshoot of the Free State Project, dedicated to a libertarian takeover of a small town. The goals of the Free Town Project are: “to liberate either a New Hampshire Town, or a Western County, by moving in enough Libertarians to control the local Government and remove oppressive Regulations (such as Planning & Zoning, and Building Code requirements) and stop enforcement of Laws prohibiting Victimless Acts among Consenting Adults, such as Dueling, Gambling, Incest, Price-Gouging, Cannibalism, and Drug Handling.” [Free Town Project.com, Accessed October 2014]
Hull bought several properties in Grafton to be used as a launching area for Free State Project activists who want to move to Grafton. [Concord Monitor. Libertarians set sights on Grafton. June 13, 2004]
Residents at Hull’s properties in Grafton are under investigation for voter fraud by the Attorney General’s office. The supervisor of the checklist from Grafton said that the complaint that is currently under investigation is that multiple Free State Activists voted from Hull’s residence who did not actually live there at the time.

Why is Robert Hull’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 Robert Hull 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]
