An immutable law: You get more of what you subsidize.— Carla Gericke, Live Free And Thrive! (@CarlaGericke) March 14, 2023
If you bail out:
Drug users, you get more junkies
Banks, you get more banksters
Pharma, you get more harma
Stop underwriting bad behavior & expecting different results.#EndTheFed#BankingCrisis#Crypto#LiveFreeAndThrive
The rise in poverty and homelessness is a direct result of the 2008 bank bailouts. The rise in drug use and overdose deaths is a direct result of the 2008 bank bailouts because people are suffering from economic malaise. This next bailout may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back… possibly even a full dollar collapse (definitely if the Petrodollar ends). You cannot allow the rich to reap rewards, but socialize their risk. This leads to moral hazards… which is where we are now.
Tammy breaks down Manchester’s affordable housing market and Carla makes silly jokes.
Lifetime achievement unlocked! Felt like I was in an Aaron Sorkin series last night when Louis and I went in person to the NBC studio to be interviewed as part of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of New Hampshire series. The two journalists who interviewed me are Alison King and Sue O’Connell. I wish we had more time to to explore some of the issues, but all things considered, I think it went as well as it could. I will be breaking down some of the issues on The Carla Gericke Show in the coming weeks.
Alison King and Sue O’Connell sit down with Free State Project founder Jason Sorens to discuss the first episode of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of New Hampshire. WATCH NOW…

Liberty Forum 2023 has come and gone! What an amazing weekend.
THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to every attendee, speakers, sponsor, and all our VOLUNTEERS.
The Free State Project runs on Porc Power, and dozens of amazing people gave countless hours to make this year’s event a smashing success!
Special thanks to Mickey Mullin and Viviana for spearheading!
Thanks to our awesome emcee Bill Barger, and the video team headed by Beau with Sarah Grealy, White Marriott, Joa assisting, Chris Lopez for the offsite dinners, Miranda Nyx Animus for managing the main room, and EVERYONE on the registration and help desk, and more!
I had an amazing time and my hope & optimism for a better future remains strong… and that’s thanks to all of YOU!!!
For the first time in the Free State, our very own Authors’ Extravaganza!
A booth with three tables filled with the works of Free Staters: from children’s, YA, poetry, essays, anthologies, nonfiction on law and life, and more!
A session where 11 authors discussed their work and marketing strategies.
Thanks to everyone who participated and a special thanks to Jody Underwood who conceived of and put the whole shebang together.
Thanks to all the attendees who bought books. Remember to leave a review to help our sales!
I hope we put this event on repeat as we encourage more Free Staters to start publishing their works!
We’re on fire! Turns out, much of what we have been saying all along, was… accurate! The Dpt of Energy and the FBI now admit a lab leak from Wuhan is likely. We also cover the “choo-choo boondoggle” and Manchester’s school budget, which just keeps going up and up while student enrollment declines. Make it make sense!

The 8th Episode of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of New Hampshire is out. WATCH NOW!
From NBC: “One of the early experiments of the Free State project was the Free Town Project, a libertarian migration to the small community of Grafton, NH. And with the libertarians….allegedly came the bears? Or did they? This episode explores the controversies a small town navigated as they became the focus of this libertarian political trial run.”
On Wednesday evening, I met Vivek Ramaswamy, who is running for president of America.
After I failed to snap a pic with Trump in early 2016 when he was doing a CNN Q&A with Anderson Cooper at then-Theos on Elm, I have resolved to not be an idiot when the opportunity presents itself. “You never know,” as Ma likes to say.
The event was held at Free Stater-owned Murphy’s Taproom and LBRY CEO & FSP board member Jeremy Kauffman gave opening remarks.
I don’t know if Vivek is on the up-and-up.
He’s certainly got on-stage charism. A good story: First gen Indian-American makes good in bio-pharma; claims to be anti-woke and anti-China (although he did do business there). He had some bad things to say, like suggesting we make war with Mexican cartels–what could possibly go wrong?–and he didn’t answer the question about independence asked by “Mayor of Manchester.”
The internet is already a twitter that he is a WEF shill. Ian Freeman has a negative impression. I’m willing to continue to listen but this is such a long shot, the best we can hope is he stays on message about not supporting globalism, wanting to reform the federal government, being anti-CBDC. We’ll see…
Have you dropped some balls recently? Carla feels your pain, and shares a few tips from her personal life to help you get back on track. Also in this episode, a brief overview of the new NBC docuseries about the Free State movement, banned documentaries, and some upcoming events.
