LANCASTER, N.H.—As the sun goes down north of the White Mountains, lasers flare on and Buzz's Big Gay Dance Party begins. It's the end-of-week blow-out for the 2,000-odd people who have been at Roger's Family Camping Resort and Motel for the festival affectionately termed "the Burning Man for libertarians." Inside, as true dark falls, flushed bodies move below the winking disco lights, surrounded by brilliant strobes, a whomp-whomp beat, enough haze to make you think this is already a dream.
Mark Warden, State Representative of New Hampshire, District 39, is dancing in a red boa and man-skirt. Michael Sylvia, New Hampshire District 6, is there too, and both former senator Robert C. Smith and Andrew Hemingway, candidate for New Hampshire governor, have been seen floating around camp, looking to pick up libertarian votes.
