People often tell me that they are not yet in the financial position necessary to move to New Hampshire. I can understand that sentiment. Nobody wants to move to a different part of the world, with all of its uncertainties, in financially poor shape. Ideally, one would pay off outstanding debts first, have some savings in the bank, and line up a job before moving.
But the truth of the matter is that if you’re struggling where you currently are, you might as well struggle in New Hampshire. Where you claim that you cannot afford to move, I believe that you cannot afford to stay.
If you’re doing well now and you’ve got a family to support then I can understand biding one’s time. But as the economy gets worse I believe you’ll be seeing many more Free Staters moving to New Hampshire with little more than the clothes on their backs. I’m almost at that point myself. I’m several grand in the hole, have no full-time employment and no prospects of things improving in the so-called Golden State. If I’m going to be a debt slave I might as well be one in New Hampshire, where I’m amongst like-minds, a lower cost of living, no sales taxes, and arguably the best economy in the nation.
We’re headed for what may become known as “the Greater Depression.” If that is the case then you’re likely never going to be in outstanding financial shape. My sentiment is that one is better off toiling in New Hampshire than anywhere else. And by the looks of it, Sovereign Curtis agrees. I hope you will watch this testimony and take what he has to say to heart and then join me, and so many others, in the pilgrimage to the land of milk and honey.
