Ten years ago, New Hampshire was chosen by members of the libertarian minded group, the Free State Project, to move here en-masse and make change.  A decade later, they’ve had some influence, on state and local politics but have also faced criticism.   We’ll look at where the Free-State movement is now…and its plans for the future.
