Why are you running for City Council?
My entire life I’ve watched every level of government (local, State, and Federal) run this great country and its people into the ground all while claiming to have made our lives better. Have they really? Currently NH’s state debt stands at $12.3 billion while the US owes a whopping $18.4 trillion. Programs that many my age have paid into and expect to collect once they retire will be completely insolvent and unavailable to them. The money Will run out one day, but it seems our current elected officials are either oblivious to this fact, or simply unwilling to stand up and face the growing problem in any way other than just throwing more money at it. Well, I will not to sit back idly and watch while these men and woman who supposedly “Represent me” flush my inheritance down the drain. If elected city councilor I will make those hard decisions that they are unwilling to make by working tirelessly to curb the rampant spending and money redistribution within the city.

Ian Freeman’s Answers to Sentinel Questionnaire

ian_fancyI am running for Keene city council at-large and had the opportunity to fill out the questionnaire from the Keene Sentinel. Here are my responses for this year, 2015:
Name: Ian Freeman
Age: 35
Address: 73 Leverett St. (Ward 4)
Family: Yes
Education: AA in Radio/TV Broadcasting
Occupation: Radio Minister
Organizations: Cheshire TV Board of Directors, NHJury.com Board of Directors,
Previous Elected Office: None

1. Why are you running for city council?
I am running for council to advance the idea that you should be free to live your life however you want, so long as you don’t use aggressive force or fraud against others. That’s the basic premise of voluntarism – the idea that all human interactions should be consensual. My candidacy is a platform for spreading that idea. It’s time government started acting like the rest of us and honoring our neighbors’ choices and rights, rather than crushing freedom and productivity. I’d also like Keene voters who care about liberty to know about the Keene Liberty Alliance, a nonpartisan group formed to advance the ideas of freedom politically in the Elm City. We have a facebook group and email announcement list you can join. Please visit Keene.NHLiberty.info online to learn more.

NH State Rep Interviewed About Secession

Dan Itse

State Rep Daniel Itse

State Representative Dan Itse has been interviewed about New Hampshire declaring independence for an article appearing on righty website World Net Daily.  It’s nice to see support for the idea of secession already coming from people within the state house.  Hopefully we’ll see some legislation to put forth the idea sooner rather than later.  Itse says in his interview,

“Thinking on this, and as they drafted the Articles of Confederation, would they have entered into a union, a perpetual union, if they could not also withdraw from that union when that union became injurious to their liberty?” Itse asked.

“The answer is categorically no,” he told WND. “And I have never posited that question to anyone where they didn’t come up with the proper conclusion.”

The federal government is definitely injuring our liberty, not to mention murdering people worldwide in our name.  It’s time New Hampshire and every other state government declare their independence and end this failed United States.  The feds bring nothing of value to the table and only siphon off our valuable resources into bombing raids and more killing and record imprisonment of our people.

Stop the insanity.  Learn more at the Foundation for New Hampshire Independence and get the conversation started at the workplace, family dinner table, and with your friends.  Already one in four Americans supports the idea of their state seceding from the US.  Many more are undecided.  Let’s move the numbers to a majority favoring states leaving the union.  It’s long past time for this to happen.
