December 27, 2012 - "The logo of the Free State Project includes a crudely drawn image of a porcupine, a symbol that became part of the movement’s iconography after an online vote by early project participants.... According to the Free State Project’s website, the porcupine was chosen
by popular vote of its members because something more original and 'public relations-friendly' was desired to emphasize the 'freshness' of the movement’s approach....

"There’s little doubt that the Free State Project has established a foothold in New Hampshire. But even one of its more high-profile adherents acknowledges that there’s work to do in order to get the
organization instantly recognized by the average Granite Stater."

"'From what I’ve found, most people in New Hampshire don’t even know about the Free State Project outside of the political class,' said Mark Warden, a Free Stater who has twice won election to the state House of Representatives, most recently on Nov. 6.... 'For the most part, people I’ve met like the idea (of the Free State movement), but there’s no real sense of recognition,' added Warden, who moved to New Hampshire from Las Vegas, Nev., five years ago."
