Freedom activism in the Lebanon/Dartmouth area.
« on: October 25, 2007, 12:35 PM NHFT »

I figured it would be good to start a thread where folk can discuss freedom activism in this area because there doesn't seem to be one already. *IS* there any going on? All I seem to hear and see is from Keene, Concord and Manchester areas.

NHLA tri-folds couldn't hurt, I suppose, but:
1) they only "work" for people who are already basically libertarian, and
2) Dartmouth kids generally need deprogramming from the Socialism they've been hoodwinked on

FTL is excellent at #2

I took some copies of the Keene Free Press to Dartmouth last year and they got taken within a day... I agree though, FTL fliers are a good idea. 

At least the graduate students there seem to be receptive to freedom-oriented ideas.  Ron Paul came to give a talk about health care at the med school and it was very well attended by med students, grad students, and those from the engineering and business schools.  I saw two videographers but so far I unfortunately haven't found it on YouTube.  Granted they also had some hacks from the Hillary and Obama campaigns talking about health care policies too - but I think those drew much smaller crowds.

Yea, you're right though Porcupine - this area is sadly lacking in the civil disobedience area. 

Maybe we can brainstorm in person at the next Dartmouth Area monthly meeting.

Oh, if you tell me where I should take them, I'll deliver papers to Dartmouth.  It always has ads for FTL.

This is an article about it in The Dartmouth Review.    http://dartreview.com/archives/2007/10/14/ron_paul_md_speaks_on_health_care.php

Fantastic article. Not negative or sarcastic at all. Thanks for posting it. I'm hoping more Porcs are moving to the Lebanon area, so we get some activism and energy moving up there..especially with the college.

I heard that some people just moved to Croydon.

There is a Ron Paul meetup in that area and those people 'think like us'.

Hi Kat,
Sorry for the long lag... next Dartmouth Area Meeting I will bring a map of Dartmouth's campus and show you the best spots to deliver papers.  That would be awesome!  I think there are definitely more freedom-friendly folks at Dartmouth than one might expect. :)

And totally off-topic, Lauren is free, yay!!  :jailbird:

Ever heard of Ed and Elaine Brown from Plainfield, NH?  ;)

Granted it's pretty much over now but I'd say that was some pretty serious civil disobedience.
