State House candidate Elizabeth Edwards moved to New Hampshire in 2011 as part of the Free State Project. Edwards has demonstrated considerable ties to the Free State Project, including:
Edwards has given presentations about the Free State Project to recruit more people to move – calling it the “Second American Revolution.” A video from 2011 shows Edwards speaking at a Tea Party Rally in Rochester, New York encouraging people to sign up to move to New Hampshire with the Free State Project and “join us in the Second American Revolution.” (YouTube: Rochester Tea Party (7-3-2011) Elizabeth Edwards – Free State Project, Posted 7.8.11)
Edwards has participated in several Free State Project events, including the annual PorcFest, where she gave a presentation in the summer of 2016. (Porcfest XIII Speakers: Elizabeth Edwards)
Interestingly, Edwards is so involved with the Free State Project movement that she actually got married in the main field at Porcfest: “Caitlin and Elizabeth Edwards-Appell, 25 and 26, respectively, a gay couple who were in fact adorable and who had gotten married in the main field at Porcfest. The two were celebrating their honeymoon among their Free State compatriots.” (Free Beacon, Guns, Weed, and Bitcoin: Among the Free Staters at Porcfest, July 3, 2014)
Why is Elizabeth Edwards’ 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 Elizabeth Edwards 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]
