*** About the Walk For Liberty
What are you willing to do for freedom?
Vote? Protest? Participate in a rally? Walk all the way across the country?
This summer, a group of activists will be walking across America to achieve more freedom and liberty.
Our pioneer forefathers trekked across the continent from the east to the west to find a better life for themselves. This time, we’re doing it in reverse.
I am walking coast-to-coast across the country, from Oregon to New Hampshire. I am joined by my immediate family as well. We’re on a quest to gain more freedom for ourselves and for our country by spreading the message of freedom and liberty along the way.
Why are we doing this?
We see the gradual chipping away at freedoms in America, and want to do our part to stop it. My wife and I are moving to New Hampshire as part of the Free State Project. New Hampshire is already the freest state in the country, which is why we are moving there. But we also want to help bring more freedom to as many other people as possible.
Therefore we are walking across America to get to New Hampshire. We are walking all the way there to bring as much media attention and publicity as possible to two liberty-oriented causes: the Free State Project, which is working to make New Hampshire even more free, and Ron Paul’s message of freedom for everyone.
