Last month, I was interviewed by the BBC for their series on Autarky. In Episode One, around minute 21:50, I mention being an early Free State mover (2008) and how New Hampshire could be poised to become its own successful, peaceful and prosperous country, like a Switzerland or Iceland.
Tom Woods and Carla Gericke catch up on goings-on in the Free State. They discuss the recent attempt by a real-life Karen to disqualify from election candidates running for office because she didn’t like the bill they introduced (CACR 32), states’ rights and National Divorce, Carla’s race for House of Representatives [DONATE NOW!], and more!
This episode is pretty great! I was being trailed by NBC Boston, who had their cameras set up in my studio too, and they asked if I could do a quick wrap up of recent developments in the Free State, and this is what they got. They were pretty impressed that I was able to do this entire episode on the fly. I explained it’s my super-power… if you’re never as prepared as you should be, you learn to be good on your feet! Enjoy!
In response to Chris Sununu saying: “They wanted to secede from the United States of America, completely un-American. They don’t believe in democracy.”
Leaving aside the fact that Sununu is trying to divert attention away from his cover-up of a blatantly illegal political election campaign contribution, and one must assume there’s still other financial malfeasance that’s going to be coming out given how hard they’re all trying to avoid this audit being finalized… Let’s deal with the facts of his”secession and democracy” quote for people following along:
FOR THE RECORD, CACR 32 was THE MOST DEMOCRATIC BILL ever introduced at the state house bc ALL it did was put the question of independence TO GRANITE STATE VOTERS.
The Establishment lies and lies and lies to suit their needs while suppressing our freedoms & refusing to let our fellow Granite Staters and neighbors decide for themselves if they want to continue under the yoke of DC.
Of course, politicians like Sununu receive benefits from DC, but the average “NONESSENTIAL” voter is only being made poorer–just look at your energy and gas bills!
Also, don’t forget YOUR GOVERNOR CALLED YOU “NONESSENTIAL,” and shut down YOUR business while not furloughing ONE government employee… But, please, continue to trust him why dont’cha!
A Constitutional amendment has an incredibly high bar to pass–again, REAL DEMOCRACY–so it’s interesting to me to see the misinformation being spread.
Then again, a recent USA Survey poll said 53% of registered Republicans in NH support secession NOW, so perhaps that’s why Sununu is so afraid of true representative democracy?
Socialism, not secession, is “un-American,” especially considering this country was, in fact, borne from secession and is A REPUBLIC.
Let’s stick to the FACTS and stop with the lies, please.

Free Stater and libertarian activist @CarlaGericke was on 🔥 in her testimony on New Hampshire Independence (CACR32)

Honorable Committee Members,
Thank you for your time today. My name is Carla Gericke, but my friends call me Queen Quill. I am an immigrant to America and became a US citizen in 2000, having to take a citizen’s test, where, you know, New Americans learn about the Constitution and the enumerated things the federal government is supposed to be limited to doing, which isn’t supposed to be much.
I am an author, activist, and attorney. I am a political refugee to New Hampshire, moving here in 2008 as part of the Free State Project. I was the Republican nominee for NH Senate in District 20, and received 45% of the vote in the last election. I’ll be running again. [DONATE!]
I am a proud Free Stater, and, like many, but not all Free Staters, I support NH Independence.
I am testifying today in SUPPORT of CACR 32 because it should always be in the hands of the people how they are governed.
CACR 32 simply states: “Are you in favor of amending the first part of the constitution by inserting after article 7 a new article to read as follows:
The federal government has failed us. It no longer follows the Constitution. The federal government ushers in unconstitutional wars. The federal government hurts our fellow Granite Staters with its War on Drugs, which just makes bad personal choices, worse. The federal government, colluding with the Federal Reserve, makes us all poorer due to inflation caused by money printing. Face it, Granite Staters are being abused by DC.
What do we advise victims to do when they are being abused?
Which means, we have the right to ask for a DIVORCE. This is all today’s proposed amendment is: an opportunity–a DEMOCRATIC OPPORTUNITY–for Granite Staters to decide whether our relationship with the federal government is worth salvaging.
I say it is NOT, and everyone should know, we would ALL be better off if we went our separate ways.
What are we taught about abusers?
They will tell you, you can never leave.
They will tell you they will change.
They will tell you it’s your fault.
Abusers, and the federal government, are gaslighting liars who cannot be trusted. We all know the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and it is YOUR duty to at least create an OPPORTUNITY for Granite Staters to DECIDE our own destinies.
As an independent nation state, NH will be prosperous and peaceful, along the lines of small, successful countries like Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, or Switzerland. We would have four times the size of Iceland’s population. We would easily be able to work with our neighbors to trade, much like the countries do in the Schengen Area in Europe. Many American retirees already receive their social security pensions in foreign countries like Mexico.
No future challenge related to independence is insurmountable: Where there is a will, there is a way.
Let’s see if there is a WILL.
There are many compelling reasons to support a #NATIONALDIVORCE and I encourage folks who are curious to visit the Foundation for NH Independence’s website. I serve on this federally recognized 501c3 educational nonprofit’s board and at nhindependence.org you will find for hundreds of reasons why YOU should support a free and independent New Hampshire, not least of which we would all be SIGNIFICANTLY wealthier, probably on average about $25,000, if we could keep our hard earned federal income taxes.
Today, your ONLY duty is to democracy, which every single one of you claims to support. YOU need to vote in favor of this OPPORTUNITY because it is NOT up to you. It is up to individual Granite Staters.
We are called the live free or die state. When we become independent, we will also be the Live Free and THRIVE state. Afford us the opportunity to TRY.
Thank you for your time, I’d be happy to answer questions.
