Free State Project
The Free State Project (FSP) is a libertarian organization dedicated to promoting libertarian ideals by attempting to concentrate libertarian voters in one state, where they can influence local politics. In 2013, the Free State Project chose New Hampshire as the migration target because of its low taxes, strong economy, open-carry laws and generally independent and libertarian tradition, as espoused by it's motto "Live free or die."
Members of the Free State Project are sometimes called porcupines, after the FSP seal. Some members have been elected to the state legislature, but so far the total number of participants is lower than was originally hoped. As of December 2014, 16,332 people have signed the pledge.
