Feds capitulate to New Hampshire
I'm glad to admit that I was wrong. Homeland Security has capitulated to New Hampshire, and is now pretending that we're complying with Real ID in order to avoid the political embarrassment of imposing sanctions on us. Their face-saving claim that the security features in new NH licenses constitute a request for an extension or compliance with the requirements for biometric features and participation in a national database shows their desperation.

Apparently Bush still has some faint hope that McCain will carry the state, and doesn't want to throw it away by making Manchester Airport useless and banning us from federal courtrooms.

May 11
On May 11, the U.S. government will impose severe punitive measures on New Hampshire residents.

When flying anywhere, we will have to go through long "secondary screening" procedures unless we have passports. Manchester Airport will practically come to a standstill.

Federal buildings which require ID will not allow us in without a passport. This includes federal courts.

Why? Because we haven't promised to comply with Real ID.

This is a punitive measure, not a security measure. No state is in full compliance with Real ID yet, but people from states that have asked for an extension will still have their driver's licenses accepted.

The Homeland Security propaganda machine is going to tell us that our legislature is to blame for not complying, and that it is "endangering the lives of millions" by not promising to implement Real ID. This is nonsense. The federal government simply thinks it can force its will on us by treating us as if we were foreigners. The current administration claims that torture and impunity from legal action are necessary to national security; its real goal isn't safety from enemies, but power.

Don't believe the lies you're going to hear from them.

Ron Paul to Speak at NH Liberty Forum
Congressman Ron Paul to Speak at NH Liberty Forum

Nashua, NH -- The Free State Project is pleased to announce that Congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul will be the keynote speaker at the closing ceremonies of the upcoming New Hampshire Liberty Forum in Nashua, NH.

Congressman Paul will cap a full weekend of noteworthy speakers including Senator John Sununu and Liberty Dollar founder Bernard von NotHaus. Ron Paul will speak on Sunday afternoon, January 6th.

The recent surge in membership and movers and the ability to attract first rate speakers shows the continuing impact of the Free State Project. Irena Goddard, FSP president noted that "the presidential primary is the main reason for the surge in interest in the FSP. We are very pleased to have a pro-liberty candidate with rapidly increasing popularity as one of our featured speakers. We think it shows how serious our members are about politics and making better communities, a better state and a better country."

Other presidential campaigns have expressed interest in appearing at the forum, though no speaking times have been confirmed as yet.

The Liberty Forum is a 3-day convention focusing on successful political and social action in New Hampshire. Members and friends of the Free State Project will socialize and get a firsthand New Hampshire experience. Locals will learn about the FSP, meet its participants, and get to understand their goals and how they can work together.

There will be multiple program "tracks" covering many interests. Panel Discussions include Media, Jobs, Education choice, 2nd Amendment, Drug Policy, Making the Move, Working with Political Parties and Taxpayer
Activism.

The Liberty Forum runs January 3-6, 2008 at The Crowne Plaza, Nashua, NH

NH cheats drivers, jails objectors
Some of you were no doubt stuck with worthless tokens when the state repudiated their value in order to force us to use EZpass or pay twice as much. It took someone who isn't even from New Hampshire to stand up to this cheat and continue to hold the government to its word. He was jailed for "theft of services," when it's the government which stole its promised services from us.

Bogus arguments for seat belt laws
There's a good article on Cato's blog on the excuses NH politicians such as Rep. Jennifer Brown and Sen. Maggie Hassan have offered for attempting to legislate mandatory seat belts. The argument, in essence, is that if people engage in risky behavior such as not wearing seat belts, they might be cared for at taxpayer expense, and therefore taxpayers have a "right" to have such actions prevented.

The logic of this, of course, would extend to all risky behavior; there is, for example, a "right" to forbid me from riding a bicycle, following the same reasoning.

But the politicians are merely out to "protect your rights." Always remember that and forget what they're actually doing.
