Give Them Libertarianism, and a Moving Van: For 4,800 people seeking a bastion of hands-off rule, the most alluring state has the motto 'Live Free or Die', by Seth Stern, The Christian Science Monitor, 17 Oct 2003
Describes the beginnings of the Free State Project, shortly after New Hampshire was selected as the destination state
"... what libertarian wouldn't prefer a state where legislators take such pride in their own thrift that they haven't raised their $100 annual salaries since 1889? ... New Hampshire's small size has forced citizens since the Revolutionary War to work together. The byproduct is perhaps the nation's most accessible government, with local rule by town meeting and a 400-person House, the largest in the country."
