Well there is the counterintuitive method, given you know of the
existence of the FSP, and you want it to reach 20k members to trigger
the migration officially, you want to vote in a way that is going to
ensure that those other 14,000 people get pissed off enough where they
are that the finally decide to bite the bullet and move to NH. You want
someone who will either pass Patriot Acts II, III, IV, and V, or pass
the National Gun Confiscation Act, the National Mandatory Health Care
And Total Confiscation of Wealth Act, and the American Rural To Urban
Migration To "Save" The Environment Act. 

How likely either future is, and how bad you think a particular
candidate can make things for libertarians you want to move to NH in
reaction, can have an influence on your voting in this election.
