L.D. mentioned a great article at Reason.com about the Free State Project: The Free State Project Grows Up: Libertarians are changing the face of New Hampshire. L.D.’s comments: “[This project] seems to be gaining traction. It’s actually yielding results when you start small and build within the framework we have in place right now. It is possible to bring about positive change. I also believe this is possible in not only small states like New Hampshire, but large states like Texas. If people were to organize on a smaller community based level, it can grow and become a widespread movement. People need to believe they can achieve this and have the willpower to follow through.” JWR Adds: I have similarly high hopes for The American Redoubt strategic transmigration movement. If enough of us vote with our feet, then we can make a difference! See: Albert O. Hirschman’s book Exit, Voice, and Loyalty, circa 1970. Human nature hasn’t changed since then, nor has the interplay of politics, economics, and social dynamics.

Autrey’s Armory has announced an over-stock sale for SurvivalBlog readers only: You can buy a new Rock River Arms stripped AR-15 lower receiver for $125, shipping paid anywhere in CONUS. (These normally retail for $140 plus shipping. And it is noteworthy that Rock River lowers were selling for as much as $400 each, just a few months ago at most gun stores.) Note that these serialized lowers must be shipped to your local FFL. (In most jurisdictions, all of the rest of the parts for your AR build can be bought without any FFL paperwork.) Use coupon code “survivalblog“. The limit is one lower per customer. They only have 50 lower receivers available, so order soon.

Traffic Stop Nightmare in New Mexico [JWR Adds: This is one of the most horrendous police abuses imaginable. Thankfully, this behavior is far from the norm. In fact is so out of line that I can foresee a successful multi-million dollar lawsuit with a preemptive 7-figure out-of-court settlement. Oh, and by the way, don’t ever invite those cops to a military parade, or they’d surely tackle the Adjutant and drag him to the hospital for a thorough series of exams.]
