It’s a sad day when even N.H. goes wobbly - BostonHerald.com This is another indication of where we as a country are headed. IMO Live free or die is and always has been the best state motto in the country. But today it seems that it's just not nice enough. in this day of hope and change we cannot have a motto that promotes freedom at all costs. that's just too aggressive. So what should our motto for the new New Hampshire, and the country for that matter be? In light of the unprecedented push to have someone else pay our way and to blame everyone else under the sun for the consequences of our own actions, i think the new Motto should be Live for Free or Cry yeah that about sums it up.
