The Free State Project just released a new promotional video. If you are thinking about moving to NH, consider the greater Nashua area and plug into the community! This video is hosted on Odysee – It’s decentralized, censorship resistant and it works!
Nashua business curfew of 9:30 PM failed.
The next time someone chides you about “the fallacy of extension”, listen to Alderman Lopez or any politician as they rattle off the prior restrictions as they justify the next small step at destroying what remains of your liberty. Alderman Jette mentioned that since MA passed a curfew, they’ve seen a leveling off of cases. Wow – Let’s look at that. The MA curfew passed on Nov 19th. Looks like it went up right after and has pretty much leveled out – Amazing!
Let’s compare that to evil NH that does (did) not have a curfew.
Hey that’s odd. We also flattened in pretty much the same way. Note it does seem plausible that reduced exposure should result in fewer cases. The data does not seem to support it.
We had our Nashua Liberty social holiday party at a large venue that allowed for plenty of distancing. We raised $160 for David’s House in Lebanon, NH. Thank you to all who attended.
Please consider donating.
We can argue about the rating methodology of course but this recent post from Wallethub finds that overall Nashua, NH is the 4th safest city in the country taking into account multiple factors including risk of n natural disasters. Couple this with a similar story from US News that showed NH as having the lowest property crime in the country and 3rd lowest violent crime rate and its not too bad. Of course, statistics don’t matter if you are the unlucky victim of a crime. So, please train and carry a firearm everywhere that it is legal. In NH, that’s pretty much close everywhere – without a permission slip.
Many people have decided to try alternates social media platforms or technologies as a result of precedented* interference in elections and information sharing. This is all good and we certainly should support such actions. In particular, Nashua Liberty is currently maintaining a presence on Mewe and Parler. We also recommend that you move away from the web browser platforms that both don’t respect your privacy and which are likely to be the next attack vector. While there are potentially a few good choices, currently on both the destkop and mobile we are using the Brave browser. While it has a cryptocurrency underpinning (the Basic Attention Token (BAT)) and you may find that you enjoy leveraging that feature, the browser itself is quite good at providing tools to speed up your browsing experience and provides tools to help you manage your privacy and security.
Ultimately centralized platforms like Mewe and Parler are seem likely to be compromised. Better alternatives will be needed in the future. Memo.cash is a blockchain based twitter alternative, and while I use it, it is fair to say that many will simply find it ‘not ready’. One platform that is ready is the LBRY blockchain based odysee.com platform. While technical users may want to consider using LBRY directly, the user experience of odysee for normal users has become quite good for video sharing, mirroring of youtube content and publishing of podcasts.
The important thing to remember as you pick a new platform is that it is plausible that whatever you pick today will not the the same thing you are using a decade from now. While that is disruptive, it’s ok.
* precedented – this was not an error. In the days before the internet, we all got our news from centralized news sources that told us what to think and made claims of journalistic integrity and unbiased reporting. We had a pretty solid decade of somewhat breaking free from this with the relative freedom of the original internet. That time is drawing to a close. There is certainly precedent for the oligarchy controlling the media we consume and pushing the perspective of the cathedral. What we are seeing is not unprecedented today as much as it is exposed.
Donations to sponsor this project were received in cryptocurrency in both Bitcoin and Dash. Several of the books include a bookmark with a small amount of Dash that can be retrieved from a paper wallet that will auto-refund to the Nashua Liberty wallet if it is not claimed. This capability was enabled by cryptotip.org.
Thank you to everyone who donated. Follow-up posts will be provided if any of the Dash is claimed and/or when it returns to the Nashua Liberty Wallet.

I believe there are several other locations scattered throughout the city that we’ll visit on the next round.
Sometimes people ask how they can get involved in helping New Hampshire before they move to Nashua. One great way would be to join the NewHampshire Liberty Alliance (NHLA) or setup a recurring donation to the NHLA Political Action fund or Operations fund.
The PAC fund is used to provide financial support to endorsed candidates for state level offices. These endorsements are based on on the NHLA’s Liberty Rating for incumbents and are based primarily on a candidate survey for candidates without an established voting record. The Liberty Rating is a score card that rates members based on how closely they voted to the weekly publication – The Gold Standard.
The operations fund covers the costs for items such as printing of the Gold Standard – a voting guide that volunteers distribute each week at the state house as well as covering the costs for running their website or other operating costs that don’t map directly to candidates.
There is a good chance that Nashua State Rep Schmidt will attend the Feb 11, 2019 school board meeting to ask the school board to support HB101. This bill would for the first time give local school boards the authority to infringe upon the rights of citizens by adopting a ban on self-defense on school grounds.
The main calendar site for the school board currently shows that the board meeting will be from 07:00 PM to 09:00 PM@ Nashua High School North – Lecture Hall – B166.

We’ve had a group on facebook for many years and I don’t see that going away any time soon but we are tentatively trying to have a group on mewe now as well given the data privacy and hostile political leanings of facebook.
Feel free to check us out there and help grow the size of the mewe community.
