AFPNH - Join us tomorrow at 10AM to repeal RGGI 

Join us tomorrow at the Statehouse at 10AM to help repeal RGGI!

Tomorrow at 10AM in Representatives Hall there will be a hearing on HB 208, which would repeal the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, the failed cap-and-trade scheme commonly known as RGGI.

Our focus right now should be on creating new jobs and growing the economy. Unfortunately the RGGI program does just the opposite. It undermines our competitiveness while increasing electricity costs for our ratepayers.

The time has come to remove New Hampshire from this failed program and give relief to our hard-working citizens and business owners.

If you agree, plan to join us tomorrow at 10AM at Representatives Hall to make your voice heard.

I hope to see you there!

Live Free or Die,

Greg Moore
State Director

APP - Governor Bobby Jindal Confirmed for The State Lunch 

been confirmed for The State Lunch!  Be sure to register today!

Our first luncheon will feature a high-level on the Common Core State Standards will be held on February 5, 2015 at the Mayflower Hotel (1127 Connecticut Ave., NW, Washington DC, 20036) at 12:00pm (ET).

Governor Jindal of Louisiana made education reform his top priority and pushed a bold plan to provide more choices for families, reward quality teachers, increase school accountability, and give school leaders more flexibility with funding and personnel.  As a result of his reforms, Louisiana now has a statewide school choice scholarship program that gives parents the option to remove their children from a failing school and enroll them in a new school of their choice.

"Parents across the country are becoming increasingly concerned about what Common Core means for their children’s future and for the future of our great nation," American Principles Project's President Frank Cannon said. "Governor Bobby Jindal has become a strong spokesperson on this issue, which is why we invited him to address APP’s State Lunch. All presidential hopefuls should work to understand this issue and take a clear position on it. APP’s State Lunch will lay the foundation for the Common Core discussion and will lay out the political landscape for 2016."

The State Lunch will be followed by our 3rd Annual Red, White & Blue Gala featuring Texas Governor Rick Perry as our keynote speaker and Ali Landry as our master of ceremonies.  The gala will also be held at the Mayflower with a reception at 6:30p (ET) and dinner at 7:30p (ET).

The American Principles Project is a 501(c)(3) organization that recognizes the dignity of the person as the basis of the founding principles of the United States.  We are dedicated to the declaration of the Founding Fathers that we are all “created equal, endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, and among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

We are dedicated to promoting America’s founding principles in the public square through rigorous debate, scholarship, education and advocacy.

P.S. The State Lunch is on the same day as the APP Red, White and Blue Gala with Gov. Perry. Make sure to buy your tickets today.

FSP Announces Benn Swann to speak in New Hampshire 

Award-Winning Journalist Ben Swann to Address the New Hampshire Liberty Forum
 

Manchester, NH Two-time Emmy award winning reporter Ben Swann will give the Friday night keynote address at the New Hampshire Liberty Forum on March 6, 2015, organized by the Free State Project.

Manchester, NH – The Free State Project is proud to announce investigative journalist Ben Swann will be appearing at its March conference, the New Hampshire Liberty Forum. Swann, a nationally known video journalist who has won two Emmy Awards and two Edward R. Murrow awards, will be addressing an audience of several hundred libertarian activists on Friday March 6 at 8:30 PM at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, N.H.

Swann, 36, was until 2013 a prime-time anchor at WXIX in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he produced and presented the popular and controversial “Reality Check” segment. He left that job to pursue independent reporting through his “Truth in Media” project. According to benswann.com, his work has garnered over 10 million video views in more than 140 countries.

As an anti-establishment journalist, Swann’s reporting has focused on issues such as the drug war, education, gun control, privacy, foreign policy, and elections. Swann’s vision of journalism consists of “speaking truth to power through media, culture, and technology to empower the voice of the people toward liberty and freedom” (benswann.com). This will be his first time speaking at a Free State Project event.

“Ben Swann is a fearless reporter, willing to cover issues ignored by the mainstream media,” said Free State Project president, Carla Gericke. “When Ben launched his ‘Truth in Media’ project in 2013, he did so here in New Hampshire because Ben understands this is ground zero for the grassroots liberty movement.”

The New Hampshire Liberty Forum, an annual event started in 2007, showcases the Granite State each winter, bringing together national experts in the fields of journalism, economics, education, political science, and philosophy. This year’s event features, in addition to Swann, chairman and CEO of Overstock.com Patrick Byrne, Cato Institute vice president David Boaz, Reason magazine editor Nick Gillespie, successful Brady Act challenger and former sheriff Richard Mack, Charles Koch Institute vice president William Ruger, Wake Forest professor James Otteson, Dartmouth professor Meir Kohn, and many others. The event is open to the public and will be taking place March 5-8, 2015. Tickets can be purchased at nhlibertyforum.com, starting at $125.

The Free State Project educates the public about the benefits of liberty in New Hampshire, and has so far recruited more than 16,000 people sharing the libertarian philosophy to move to New Hampshire from the rest of the United States and several foreign countries.
