The history of Liberty in a place is sort of the thing I am trying to disabuse people of. If that is a good idea, then why don’t we all move to Boston? It has a greater history. It has Ole Iron Sides! Hell, I am starting my own 101 Reasons to Move to Boston for Liberty.
Yes, if you compare NH to other states, there are many things that make it a good place to live. Another thing I am trying to tell people is that some list doesn’t taylor well to YOUR life and your life is the only one that matters.
Utila is the name of the island that I am literally building a community, and I don’t want to mix the 2 threads. I will make one and you can take potshots there, but this is a thread about my passion: convincing people that they are wrong-headed about why they would move to a place.
You have leveled your best argument in the last paragraph “Oh how can we listen to Mark when he has changed his mind?” Firstly, no I have not. The US Marianas is the free-est place in the US. It was free-er than NH before Covid, during Covid (unless you were traveling to and from) and it is free-er now. I outlined the remoteness of the locale many times while touting it. It isn’t perfect, but if freedom is your goal, The US Marianas is a better choice than NH.
Second, I am already free. I am not burdened with the notion that I must sacrifice my life to the very tyrants that feed on lives. So many of y’all are. I don’t need or want to stay in a jurisdiction because it is free. I am just scouting for y’all. I went to Ghana last year. I didn’t do it because I wanted to find liberty, I did it because I wanted to see what it was like there (it’s awful).
Third, yes! Covid changed my opinion of things, including NH. The US Marianas scared me with its airport lockdown, but NH scared me with its restaurant lockdown. NH was like #23 on the list of free-est places during Covid. Do you really want to bring that up? I don’t know what we can learn from Covid, and would be happy to hear ideas, but I would not draw the conclusion that Florida is the free-est place or best place to live simply because it was quite a bit free-er than NH at the time, was basically neck-annd-neck with NH on the Fit50, and because property rights FL are better than in most places in NH.
If what you are saying is that you are in NH and you are going to make your best go of it, great. I hope the best for you all, but if you say that NH is the best or free-est anything, nope. I am going to correct you, because the FSP is a religion and religions need skeptics to get their message honed.
