State Senate candidate Marie Lozito and her husband Pat moved to New Hampshire in 2008 as part of the Free State Project. Lozito has demonstrated considerable ties to the Free State Project, including:
Marie Lozito’s husband Pat posted on the Free State Project message board that the two of them were moving to Claremont as part of the Free State Project. In a message on the Free State Project forum titled “We’ll be living in NH by the end of November!” and posted on October 14, 2008, Lozito’s husband wrote: “To all: It gives us the greatest joy to inform you that Marie and I (Pat) will have completed our move and change of residence to Claremont NH by the end of November. For us, it will be the fulfillment of our dreams. We really feel it is escaping to freedom from an “occupied” country. i.e. New York. Our best wishes to all! Pat and Marie Lozito.” The post was met with congratulations from other Free State Project members on making the move. (Free State Project Forum, October 14, 2008)
Within months of moving to New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project, the Lozito’s were active in trying to change New Hampshire laws. A Nashua Telegraph article from 2010 – just 15 months after the Lozito’s moved to New Hampshire – quotes Pat Lozito’s testimony on firearms legislation at the state level. While it’s positive for residents to be active in state government, the Free State Project is purposely moving people to New Hampshire to take over and dismantle state government – thru efforts like running for office or lobbying at the State House.

Why is Marie Lozito’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 Marie Lozito 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]
