Live Free or Die . . . or secede?
New Hampshire residents have long thought their state motto had just two options, but the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire has endorsed a third way.
The five-member executive committee met last week and adopted a resolution calling for New Hampshire to secede.
“Recognizing that libertarianism is defined as self-ownership, and recognizing that both our federal and state founding documents make it clear that we have the right of peaceful secession. I’m pleased that the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire has resolved its support,” said Rodger Paxton, vice chairman of the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire.
