I understand that the state motto “live free or die” was the basis for calling libertarians to move to New Hampshire. But we all know the majority of americans do not feel this way about liberty today. So why New Hampshire, then? Why did you not pick some place where the weather is nice, like an island in the caribbean or something??? Where else are people doing this? And how about time shares, or a libertarian AirBnB?
I wish you all the best, but libertarians need to think bigger: we need to take one county in every state - and we need a network of RV parks that are equally spaced by traveling time. (Some of us will never ‘put down roots’ and buy a house so long as we have to pay school property taxes, because the public school system is a corrupt monopoly run by a band of pirates.)
The Disney corporation created a municipal government and a town for its employees. Now SpaceX plans to do something similar. Do you think this is a tactic which libertarians should explore? Do we need a municipal charter that specifically guarantees the kind of liberties which American governments routinely violate?
I also think we need to cultivate alliances with native american tribes – especially those which have their own federally recognized territory. We should buy their cannabis & tobacco, and use their currency, to empower them politically and economically - because they have treaties which recognize their independence. I would rather use a ‘Crazy Horse dollar’ than the currency of the American Federal Empire - and I don’t mind using fiat if it’s issued by a tribe which is going to reserve a place for those who love liberty.
I like the idea of Bitcoin but it’s not a practical medium of exchange because it cannot support many transactions per second, and everyone is holding their crypto expecting it to increase in value forever. There are far more efficient and private cryptocurrencies which we could use, if we could find some way to rate-limit currency production without resorting to ‘mining’.
We also need to take advantage of the current pandemic of virtue signaling: the left says they support the rights of minorities now. I don’t really believe them – but I think we can use this political momentum to obtain state & federal recognition for indigenous tribes which did not get a reservation by treaty. I want to be an “indian citizen” and support the tribes which will defend freedom! I would volunteer to teach, or work for a tribal government on infrastructure projects, in exchange for protection from the criminals in state & federal government who want to tax my homestead and dictate what I can grow in my garden!
If all of the indigenous peoples would unite politically & economically under the banner of liberty, and properly leverage what they already have, I believe there would be a renaissance, and liberty would spread throughout the land along with prosperity.
