My 2 cents is that the whole concept of the Free State Project is a failure, notwithstanding the thousands who have actually moved to NH.
So, not even their corporate structure, board members, marketing plan, budget made the difference?  But (as you urged of us for years) it would have for the FSW? 

The free-state idea is still the best idea out there, but both the FSP and the FSW were apparently too early.  Once the Depression (and/or an Orwellian state) is more in everybody's face, then folks will condescend to move elsewhere. 

Remember, the first couple of colonizing attempts on the 17th century East Coast didn't take.

Right now, it's rather a lull, I agree.
The FSW will keep its "lights on" and be ready for any significant change of national interest.
I am proud of everyone who became involved!

Yes, please do leave a candle in the window; even if some of us who are there in heart are called to be elsewhere.

Just found this thread, didn't notice it before for some reason.

There are lots of reasons, the number one is money, of course, but the other is that there is no there, there.

This is a rather strange comment. Money (or jobs), yes, but I would not go along with the rest unless it simply means a low population, which is obvious. But things to do? When I lived there I always had something going on, and it was never boring. And the quality of people there is amazing (outside the politicians).

I pretty much agree with the assessments above. Separation is definitely the way to go, and that is what FSW et. al. was all about, and it will happen when the economy collapses. People move to places that suit them, especially when the place they now live becomes intolerable for them.

Here's a truly "out there" suggestion. The Free City Project!  ;D

Carter Lake, Iowa is a small city on the Nebraska side of the Missouri river that's "in" Omaha, right by the airport.

If 1,000 politically united people moved there they could probably, over MANY years with LOTS of work, become an entity like the US Virgin Islands or Guam. But unlike those places it would be filled with people who DON'T want to run your life.

Check Google Maps and Wiki >:D

there is a number of cities here in Wyoming that you could do this in too.

the biggest challenge will be jobs/work.

what will people do to earn money in the new town?

It would probably be a case of people bringing their own businesses with them.

Exactly, that's the problem with a rural place. There are no jobs and a bunch of new people will cause "issues" in the area.

In a place like Carter Lake a bunch of new people might upset the people of Carter Lake but they wouldn't even be noticed by the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro area. You could get a job in Iowa or Nebraska and still live in the city you hope to slowly move towards freedom.

Like working in Casper but living in the middle of Casper in a separate governmental jurisdiction.

Actually, now that I think about it, you could own a ranch or farm out in the country but your legal residence would need to be in Carter Lake.
