Default Top ten signs it is time to leave NH....

10. You moved here and then found out there is winter
9. You don't understand all this fuss about the "first in the nation" primary
8. You complain that MSNBC is not on the basic cable
7. You believe using a turn signal is a sign of a character flaw
6. You know that everything is better in Massachusetts anyway
5. You believe a "view tax" is a good idea
4. You support an increase in the gas tax
3. You support a sales tax
2. You support an income tax
1. You think that if you are here long enough you can change NH

It is not my intention to be mean to people from other states that come to NH for the benefits and then want to change the state.... I just don't want them to be disappointed when they find the character of NH is like the white mountains (not changing for anyone)....

Bingo! New Hampshire is what it is because of the "small" government and little government intervention.

Thank God. We are considering a move to N.H. from S. Florida specifically because we need a change. Why on Earth would anyone move there and want to change it? Good grief!

Well, small government role....not a small governmental body. The NH House of Representatives is the third-largest parliamentary body in the English speaking world.

No one can complain that they don't have enough representation in Concord. If you don't something, contact your local rep....ALL of them One of the many things that makes this state great

I think the "Old Man of the Mountain" collapsing into a heap of rubble was a portent for the changing politics of New Hampshire. Nothing is forever.

Hmmmm.....
In NH, the old man of the mountain collapsed.
In MA, the state collapsed due to runaway liberal government.

I'll stay with NH. GreggyW should move back to MA and change it rather than try to change NH to be more like MA....

"I think the "Old Man of the Mountain" collapsing into a heap of rubble was a portent for the changing politics of New Hampshire"

How poetic.

I think some seriously hard times are coming to the USA soon. If I were a gun-grabbing, tax and spend liberal who thought the state should take care of me, NH is the LAST place I'd want to live.

Wow-you sound like The Concord Monitor when they blamed Craig Benson for the Old Man falling.

You are correct-nothing is forever. Hopefully people will wake up in 2010 and realize that it is make or break for NH and throw out these tax and spend nanny state lovers. Since 2006, there have been many changes in this state-both fiscally and ones that took away freedoms. We dont need to continue down that road any further. We need fiscal responsibility, common sense and personal freedoms with personal responsibility.
