You can't do shit about the federal government though.

What about puerto rico? US territory, exempt from most federal taxation.

Currently the island is rather socialist unfortunately, No state taxes as it were, but the island taxes are comparable to federal taxes.

That money doesn't go towards the atrocious shit the US government does and stays on the island though, so there is that. Also residency would allow us to participate in local government and potentially shift the island towards a free-er state.

I like the idea of the Free State Project, and it would have been perfect if our federal government hadn't grown so ridiculously massive over the past century.

What gives me pause is that currently a plurality of puerto ricans seem to want statehood.

Thanks for your reply. Very little actually, but Wyoming is the least populated state so it should be the easiest to "influence" that way. Not that it really needs to be all that much, it's the most conservative state by a great bit.

As far as libertarian values go, it seems like the people are mostly conservative and don't try to pry into other people's business, so they seem rather close to libertarian in my mind. I am not sure why New Hampshire was picked and not Wyoming.

I'd say Wyoming, strictly on a geographical basis. West Texas is desert, and it would be very difficult to farm without extensive irrigation. Also, scorching hot all year round just sucks.

The Van Horn area does pretty well for water once you have a well. There are tons of pecan farms in the area. It's scorching hot when not up in elevation. Fort Davis and Marfa are pretty comfortable. Van Horn is hot, but more like 90-95 degrees and dry heat.

Presidio and Terlingua are extremely hot, but the Terlingua Ranch area varies a lot in elevation and climate overall.
