The tax paying conservatives are moving out, the state will implode under it's huge government. Yesterday they announced they are going after business in NH to claim MA sales tax on their subjects... MA is out of control in spending and almost every politician is corrupt. The last three speakers of the house have all been shown the door because of their corruption.

NH needs more people like you and your husband.
sgthoskins - It's good to know you made the move from MA and are happy. You're right about MA being a sinking ship. I heard Deval Patrick is on a trip out west to try to coax businesses back into MA. What a joke!! Perhaps when he stops trying to screw the taxpayer, people and companies will stop leaving the state!!

Valerie C,

You are so right about what you said about voting, getting mad, then moving. For a long time I simply voted and sought some validation through talk radio. But then I just kept getting madder and madder and more and more frustrated all the while realizing my vote means nothing in this state!!!!

Something in me snapped yesterday when I heard that Deval is trying to force Town Faire Tire company to pay MA taxes from MA citizens who buy their tires in NH!!! What a nerve!! Unbelievable!! I knew we had to move. I still can't get over it. Where is the outrage? But then again this is from a state where 70% of it's citizens voted NOT to keep their own hard earened money. ( state income tax )

You know it's funny ( in a pathetic way ), because teachers unions and other unions spent 5 million dollars on the income tax question. The ads ran something like this " if you vote to repeal the income tax, fire and police protection will be cut, schools will shut down, and your real estate taxes will go up." Dramatic music plays all throughout the ad. So, the sheeple vote it down by a margin of 70% to 30% and then guess what happens? You know.... they immediately vote a doubling of the gas tax, tolls go up, our real estate taxes go up, they reduce fire and police protection, and they start shutting down schools. How pathetic is that? You know the saying "you get the government you deserve?" That is so true in this state.

no, we just have common sense. if mccain were to die, would ya really want someone dumber than a bag of doorknobs to take over, and i mean even dumber than bush?

i grew up in mass as a kid and i loved it. of course that was before i paid any taxes. but now id rather stay in nh. no sales or federal income tax. the pricetag is what you actually pay at the register. ppl are also nicer and more laid back and dont drive like idiots.

good luck on finding a job though, i wouldnt call it a smart move to pack up and move north until you actually have a job lined up. i know many MA transplants here, especially from the dumps of lowell & lawrence

I moved to NH from MA 13 years ago due to a job opportunity. I commuted for a year and could have continued to do so, but the move was the best thing my wife and I ever did. Just about everything costs less in NH than MA. My car insurance was cut in half when I moved. My house cost far less than an equivalent house in an equivalent town in MA. My three daughers have gone to the public school in NH where many of my friends, relatives and co-workers in MA have sent their kids to private schools from 7th or 9th grade onward....

NH has not really changed. The latest election was affected by the presidential election. NH will turn back to more Republican in the next election driven by the Democrats (senate, house, and governor) spending. A 17.5% budget increase over two years was ridiculous. Now the state will have to lay off workers. Is this any way to run a state?

Liberals are less likely to move to NH now than in past years. Housing prices have come down significantly in MA. What liberal would want to leave a state run by Deval Patrick and the MA state legistlature?

I wonder the same thing, but then where I am ( Colorado ), we see the Californians continue to move to place like OR, WA, ID, MT, UT, and CO and continue to mess things up.

I just don;t understand it. They create these liberal/socialist utopia's through elections, and then they want to move in create the same thing in another state.

Agreed. They create the state of MA as the liberal utopia, but then leave it when the costs are too high, moving to NH, and then complain about NH not being the same as MA, the state that they left....

Partly it's personal responsibility deficit. Seemingly unconscious of it, residents of states like MA, CA & NY are so accustomed to all their expensive services in their daily lives -and, believe it or not, many actually do not connect these things with their taxes. Many complain about how high their taxes are but complain wildly about any number of NH conditions they feel gypped out of (instead of considering the $ wasted by corruption and handouts, etc in their old state, only concerned with how their own lives are affected), perhaps they want street lights or contracted trash collection or better road conditions. People in big-state-gov't. states have become complacent having so many services that many have become lazy tv drones, moving to NH to get away from MA taxes but whining about having to actually be responsible or frugal even, then voting for tax & spenders. I honestly don't even think most of these people even notice when their big-govt-states strip their freedoms away and regulate every possible aspect of their lives. But they sure do notice when they have to give something up or make an effort on their own behalf.
