Title: Free Jim Perry from MA!!!
Post by: Kat Kanning on December 31, 2004, 07:31 AM NHFT
We're chaining little Jim Perry to a "Welcome to Massachusettes" sign, right where all the MA people are crossing the border into NH to do their tax-free shopping.  Help us free him and escape to NH!  We'll be holding signs like "NH tax freedom!", "Escape to NH", "Free Jim Perry" with FSP url.  We'll be handing out FSP literature to the MA shoppers.  It'll be on Jan 16th, 2pm in Nashua.  We'll get some maps and such out soon.

We will bring a couple of "white boards" for signs so we can change the signs from the Mass side to NH. :)
How about this one for next to the NH sign? "Honk if you love NH"

On the FSP forum, fisher wrote that there is some kind of  camera system which will
be photographing the area where we plan to do our stunt.
This is a long shot but I wonder if there is a way to stage this so that it is easy
for those cameras to see and for viewers to watch in NH....    Are there really
enough viewers for it to be worthwile?    Also I'm wondering how many viewers there
are who watch the traffic video these cameras broadcast (is that what they do, they
broadcast it? )

Kat was thinking that we could come up with a custom flyer for this event. Maybe we could make something specific to the FSP and MA residents.
Does someone want to whip up something? Otherwise Kat will design a simple one. :)

I am heading down to the DMV today to officially get my driver's license in New Hampshire. I called ahead and they said I must turn in my old, MA license. I asked if it were okay to cut it up before they took it, they said I could - only after seeing it. They also asked why... so I told them my story... they said they couldn;t blame me and will give mt eh scissors to cut it with!

LOL

OK how about we add something to the "escape from MA" protest...  Jim let me know if you'd be willing to do these things:

Once Jim crosses over into NH how about we have him do "five things in five minutes" which would be forbidden on the other side of the border.

Some of my ideas are:

) Drive 10 feet without a seatbelt
) Ride 10 feet on a motorcycle without a helmet
) Rip up his Mass Income Tax form
) Buy something without paying sales tax
) strap on a gun
) pump gas while checking his oil.  In mass you can't do that because they've banned those little chit things that keep the nozzle trigger depressed.   What are those things called anyway...

We need to have one person at the NH border holding everyones guns and let them all strap them on when they get back to NH.  8)
It might be hard to put those all in 5 minutes. Maybe just stick with the big ones.

*Strap on a gun
*Tear up a MA tax form
*Drive without a seatbelt
*Ride a motorcycle without a helmet
all of these can be quick and on camera (right at the border) if they are there.
(Since we are going to a mall afterwards to party and hand out flyers) Buy something sales tax free

We've got a little over a week before this event.  Let's make sure we're all ready.

L'il JP, will the press releases go out this week?
I'll be responsible for getting JP's chains.
Hopefully everyone who shows can bring some FSP material to hand out.  I will come up with a event-specific flyer, unless Jim's got something already.
Lloyd, are you available for this with your big sign and bolt cutters?
Seth Cohn offered to bring his cam and film the event.
Can someone volunteer to find out where the Nashua cams there can be viewed, if anywhere?
Can someone in Nashua drop by there and make sure there's a good sign to strap L'il JP to?
What else do we need?

For those that are scouting out the location:
Where should Lloyd park his van?
Where should we all park while this is going on? Should we park clear of the area to give visibility or should we all park right there to add to the insanity of the scene?
Title: Re: Free Jim Perry from MA!!!

Hey JP,
Could you create a flyer that we could hand out during the chaining portion?

I have not created a flyer... which location are we doing this... the State Highway 3 or Route 3A? Anyone want to come by perhaps tomorrow Friday to scout the area with me?

Is there a way jim could cut up his MASS DL during the press event?  Or does that cut-up have to be done at the DMV?
Title: Re: Free Jim Perry from MA!!!
Post by: Dave Ridley on January 06, 2005, 03:57 AM NHFT
Jim I have a Glock and holster you can use if you want to do the gun part.   I'll plan on making sure that happens for you even if I can't be there (assuming you are cool with putting it on as we've been discussin). I do think we should concentrate on Jim rather than having 5 of us all trying to strap on guns at the same time....that will just complicate things without making for improved pictures.
Title: Re: Free Jim Perry from MA!!!
Post by: Dave Ridley on January 06, 2005, 04:05 AM NHFT
We need to get the word out about this thing...those of you who can please spread the word via the email addies you have and by using the "be the media" guide at

Usually I do this but will not be able to do as much as usual this week because of work; also I have to work the day of the event so can't be there in person :(

We're going to need to let MA media know about this, especially in the towns near the event.   Can I get a confirmation from someone that jim is in fact going to do 4 things in 4 minutes that are illegal in MA?   Are we all agreed that this is a good thing for him to do?

Hey I don't see a hwy 3a on the map near the NH border...did you mean Hwy 3 entering Nashua?   At exit 1?  about 1/3 of a mile west of Pheasant lane Mall?

Here is a rough version of the release, fill in holes where you can, makek suggestions, Jim lemme know if you are willing to do the things advertised here:

Man to "break" 4 MA laws in 4 Minutes

Jim Perry of ____ has always resented the many rules and taxes that regulate his life in Massacusetts.  But on Sunday, he will do something about it.

In celebration of his 20th birthday, Jim will stage a colorful "escape."  Chained to the ill-named "Welcome to Massachusetts" sign, Jim will break free and make a symbolic dash across the New Hampshire border, where he will finally become a free citizen.

Once in the Live Free or Die state, he will do four things in four minutes which would be illegal just a hundred yards to the south.  These will include strapping on a pistol and ripping up his Massachusetts income tax forms.

Jim and his friends, part of a movement known as the Free State Project, hope his example will inspire other Massachusetts freedom lovers to make the escape as well.  They are hoping to lure a total of 20,000 pro-liberty individuals to New Hampshire as reinforcements for the state's Live Free or Die culture.   6300 have signed up so far and at least 70 of those have already made the move.

For more information on this worldwide "Escape to New Hampshire" movement, visit www.FreeStateProject.org

See you Sunday!

We shouldn't do this on the freeway. We should do it on 3A Daniel Webster Hwy/Middlesex Road so we can park legally and be able to cross to the NH side safely and easily. We need the local Nashua guys to scope it out to see exactly where we should park and such.
Do we want to park on the side of the road to create more of a "scene"? Or all park at the mall so there is good visibility for sign holders and poor chained JP?

OK so this will be just a cross the street from Pheasant Lane mall, on the west side of the mall but on the east side of Daniel Webster (AKA Middlesex Road) ?   And can I get confirmation ASAP that my press release is accurate and ok otherwise?   I need to start sending it out soon to other web forums.   I won't be writing any LTE's about it though.

Jim,
For more ink, the Salem Evening News (Salem, Ma.) might like to get a Press Release with a little local spin.  Maybe include somthing like this:

One time Salem resident Jim Perry to make great escape . . . another (long time)former Salem resident, John Connell, joined the FSP in 2003, wrote a love song to New Hampshire called "Let Me Call You Home" on the 4th of July of that year, and headed for the boarder in early 2004 . . . Connel will participate in the Perry escape.

John Connell can be contacted at 603-890-0356.

So Jim et al ... what is the final verdict for the actual location of the chaining to MA and freeing in NH?
3A is safe, but might not have big signs to use a backdrops. Hwy 3 has big signs, but has some complications. This is a puzzlement.

Sounds better :)

Here's a list of ways NH is different.  No many of them could be used visually:

No income tax
No sales tax
No capital gains tax
No inventory tax
No tax on machinery or equipment
Some of the least restrictive gun laws in the nation
No helmet law
No seatbelt law for adults
No mandatory auto insurance
No regulation of raw milk sales

Some of those might be useful on the flyer.

If a sign is the only problem keeping us from doing this on a safe, busy highway, I can make a Welcome To massachusetts sign.  I would need an image of an actual one.  We can burn the sign, later, perhaps at the porcfest!

I think that a "Leaving Massachussets" sign or a "You are now escaping Massachussetts" would work. We could design our own if that will be easier. :)

I still don't have enough info about this thing to even write an LTE or call talk radio promoting it.  Main questions I still need answered are:  Where precisely will it be

and

will Jim be able to do four things in four minutes that are illegal in MA?  (specifically ripping up his MA income tax form, riding without helmet, driving without seatbelt, strapping on gun)

Once i know these things I can advertise this and so can others but its getting late.
Title: Re: Free Jim Perry from MA!!!
Post by: Russell Kanning on January 08, 2005, 12:44 PM NHFT
I don't know exactly how many things that JP can do when he gets to NH.
We can give him a gun to strap on.
He can go into the mall and spend money sales tax free.
He can drive a car without a seatbelt.
He can ripe up or burn MA income tax forms

Not sure about motorcycle ride without helmet
Title: Re: Free Jim Perry from MA!!!
Post by: Russell Kanning on January 08, 2005, 12:45 PM NHFT
Hey JP-
I think we should decide today where exactly we are going to be doing this, so people can plan.
My vote is for Daniel Webster Highway at the boarder. We could do it all on the Northbound side of the road. :)
Title: Re: Free Jim Perry from MA!!!
Post by: JonM on January 08, 2005, 12:47 PM NHFT
I don't think ripping up Form 1 is illegal . . . but it is symbolic.  Of course, if JP still works in MA, he goes to Form-1 NR . . . the Taxation with No Representation form.

How about chugging some raw milk?  Got vitamins?

I'm thinking about a 4 X 4 foot, square, rounded corners, white letters on green background with:

Escapeing Massachusetts ?(not sure if e belongs there)

This would allow us to mount it on the NH side, lessening confiscation( for what?, littering? I don't know)

We can save it for further skits and Jim, John from Salem and others who may have escaped MA can burn it at the Porcfest.

Let me know what you all think.

In the first paragraph, it probably should read "Do you dislike the government telling you when to wear a seatbelt or motorcycle helmet?" to keep with the flow of the other questions.  Of course, there are stronger words than dislike that might fit there too.

We are down to the line with the motorcycle thing and it is an important visual aid. Someone should go to a Biker Bar and offer someone some bucks to give "Lil Jim a ride.  I'll chip in 25$

I have Boltcutters and, maybe, a little chain, although I'm not clear how the program to chain 'Lli Jim and release him is supposed to go.

I do think it would draw more interest if we chained him up on, say, Friday and released him on Sunday. ;D

OK how does this sound?

For Immediate Release
January 13, 2005
SUBJECT: Freestater Breaks his Chains from Massachusetts
Contact: Kat Dillon, Director
Email: kdillon@freestateproject.org
Phone: 603-357-2049
Website: www.freestateproject.org

Jim Perry is fed up with high taxes and the nanny state in Massachusetts.  He had decided to join the biggest freedom movement in the country, the Free State Project* and break his chains.  To symbolize this event, he will chain himself to a "Leaving Massachusetts" sign.  Freestaters will then break his bonds and release him into New Hampshire.  Once there, he will celebrate some of the freedoms one immediately gains when crossing the border:  he will destroy a MA income tax form; he will drive a car without a seatbelt; he will openly carry a handgun, reveling in the freedom to protect himself and his loved ones.  Members of the Free State Project will be there to welcome him to the state and cheer him on.

Date:  January 16, 2005
Time:  2pm
Location:  Alongside Route 3A (Daniel Webster Highway) , Nashua, NH at the MA border


*  The Free State Project is a plan in which 20,000 or more liberty-oriented people will move to New Hampshire, where they may work within the political system to reduce the size and scope of government. The success of the Free State Project would likely entail reductions in burdensome taxation and regulation, reforms in state and local law, an end to federal mandates, and a restoration of constitutional federalism, demonstrating the benefits of liberty to the rest of the nation and the world.

I have ZERO interest in self-promotion, but if you want the Salem Evening News (probably the most read paper on Boston's North Shore) to cover this, all they need is the local interest stuff.  Jim is a former Salem (Ma.) resident.  I was born and spent most of my life there.
  I did not wright my song for anyone but myself!  But, I gave it to the FSP in the hope that (as many suggested) it might be useful.  If it is mentioned that it can be found on the FSP site (perhaps with the link info), it just might get a few people to go there.  Many folks around Salem would recall the (nick) name "Jack Connell" from when I played in a band (and played hockey, etc.) down there.
  The other (weekly) paper there is the North Shore Sunday.  I have been on the front page (with color picture) of both of those papers before: the SEN for the first Jury Rights Day, and NSS (standing out in the snow, dressed in colonial looking garb, protesting) when Clinton spoke in town.  So these two papers might remember me.  And, the SEN may remember Jim from LTEs.
  Use me if you chose.
  Without the local interest stuff, I think they will not cover this.  With it, I think they will.

Jim,
For more ink, the Salem Evening News (Salem, Ma.) might like to get a Press Release with a little local spin.? Maybe include somthing like this:

One time Salem resident Jim Perry to make great escape . . . another (long time)former Salem resident, John Connell, joined the FSP in 2003, wrote a love song to New Hampshire called "Let Me Call You Home" on the 4th of July of that year, and headed for the boarder in early 2004 . . . Connel will participate in the Perry escape.

John Connell can be contacted at 603-890-0356.

You have this right?
Oh, and knowing how much we all like playing with fire, did we think of fireworks?

I spoke briefly with Steve Billingham, at the Eagle-Tribune, this morning.? He's the reporter who covers the Nashua area and is familiar with the FSP through other stories the Eagle-Tribune has written about the FSP.? I told him what was going to happen on Sunday and asked him if he would be interested in covering it.? He said he would be interested in receiving your press release, Kat, so he will know when, where, how, etc.? He said you can send it to:

Let me know if there's anything you would add or change.  I'll be spamming internet sites with it soon.  It's already up on the FSP website, BTW.

OK I've sent out the write up from this event to about a hundred libertarian and conservative forums/email lists.  We've gotten maybe 300 new hits on the photos page, so people are reading the article and checking out the pictures.  If you want to help and send it out to more forums, by all means :)
