I'm not against like-minded people establishing their own village, town, etc., but I don't like the fact that he's taking over a town where people don't share his views.

I think the best thing to do would be to befriend them - just to keep an eye on what they are doing and report anything relevant to the media or authorities.

It's an interesting situation. I imagine if he imports a bunch of neo-nazis, normal people will get imported to counter their votes; thus the town might thrive because of that psycho.

I was thinking the same thing.

Every small town has at least one nutcase with crazy ideas and grandiose schemes. It's best to let them alone unless they start causing real problems for the public. A man with $8600 and strange beliefs is not likely to get much traction. State and Federal laws still apply, so real trouble would have to be handled at those levels.

At one time libertarians were hoping to take over New Hampshire. I don't know if that continues.

In California, gay activists at one time wanted to take over Alpine County, a remote large chunk of geography with only about 1200 residents.

Interesting read: http://www.nytimes.com...

What would you do if this happened in your own neighborhood?

Well, that would never happen in my neighborhood... but if it did, I would use whatever political clout I had, legal maneuvers I knew to make their lives as miserable as possible within the parameters of the law. If that didn't work, I'd strike a bargain with the Black Panthers, the Crips, or whoever would be willing to do what was necessary to address the situation.
