Want to drive for UBER? It’s easy to get started.

I’m one of New Hampshire’s newest UBER drivers , or “partners” as UBER refers to us. I’ve been a fan of UBER’s innovation and open challenging of the status quo of transportation for a long time, and we’ve covered their various conflicts with state and city regulators on my talk radio program, Free Talk Live .

More recently, UBER has been...

VIDEO: Activists “Run for the Border” to Derby Line, VT

December 30th, 2015 - 5:54pm by FTL_Ian in

This year’s Porcupine Freedom Festival included an epic video of two NH tax collectors trying and failing to crack down on unlicensed vendors, but that wasn’t the only interaction that Porcfest attendees had with police.

Early in the week, several liberty activists made a “run for the border” and drove a couple hours from Lancaster, NH to Derby Line, VT which features the imaginary political line crossing through the middle of the Haskell library . We wanted to see it for ourselves as well as attempting to cross on foot with various forms of identification, including the World Passport.

Here’s a 24-minute short documentary covering what we saw and what we learned. In short, one can cross to Canada...

“Free the Nipple” Trial – Full Video + Interviews

December 29th, 2015 - 12:07pm by FTL_Ian in

Yesterday I traveled to Laconia, NH’s district court to record the trials of Heidi Lilley and B. Liz MacKinnon, who were unexpectedly cited by police for going topless on the beach in Gilford , NH. This, just a couple of weeks after Lilley’s successful “Free the Nipple” topless equality event in Laconia .

Hoping to overturn the illegal, discriminatory town ordinance, Lilley and MacKinnon teamed up with Free State Project early mover and attorney Dan Hynes.

Hynes’ line of questioning was interesting, specifically asking the state’s witnesses, which included three snitches and a few cops, how they determine someone is a woman. The all answered something about breasts, which is inconclusive. Without inspecting...

December 28th, 2015 - 4:56pm by FTL_Ian in

Just nine days ago, the Free State Project announced it has reached 90% of its goal of 20,000 libertarians pledged to move to New Hampshire and get active to achieve liberty in our lifetime.

Now, in just over a week’s time, the percentage is up to 91%! That’s 200 signers (from 18,000 to 18,200) in 1/3 the time it took for the previous 1% (about a month).

If you’ve been thinking about signing up, why wait any longer? You don’t want to be in the second batch of 20k, do you? Take a moment to join the Free State Project ! Once we reach 20,000 signers, the official move begins in which you have five years to make the move to NH, so start planning now. See you in the Shire!
