Right. Your property taxes are out of control...ten times higher than many states in the south. There are a number of people in NH that are very excited that there could be twenty thousand people on their way to NH to help them get their taxes dramatically reduced. I am a conservative, and one of the reasons I returned to New Hampshire was to help support the Free Staters get oppresive liberal government off of our backs. My wife and I are native to NH, and we WELCOME the Free Staters with open arms. The democrats vehemently oppose them...gee, I wonder why?
I'm not a native but have lived here for 15 years. The property taxes are high compared to other states, but you neglect to factor in that we do not have a sales or income tax. I own a substantial amount of property and my taxes are a pittance compared to the amount of taxes I'd be paying if we had income and sales taxes in NH.
As for the FSP, my town of Grafton is targeted by the FSP pioneers, known as the 'Porcupines', who intend to move in 200+ people to take over the local governent. Our current local government is the least intrusive government I've ever encountered, and I can honestly say that in all my years here no one connected with the town government has ever caused me a moment of grief.
The FSP got their asses kicked at a town meeting here a month ago and know they are not welcome in the least. If they fit the mold of most of the self centered shits I know who wear the Libertarian label, I'm sure they'll press on in their attempt to take over Grafton. I say bring it on girly men. This is rough country and most newcomers don't last long. 2-3 weeks of non-stop < -20F every year tends to weed out the weaklings.
It has nothing to do with taxes! Liberts are all about living with no accountability which they equate to reduced gov't...
Taxes are only ONE aspect of their agenda that conservatives and republicans just happen to agree with.
I get the impression that if it's up to Liberts there would be no rules are regulations "imposed" so they could live "free"
That is just another way of not be held accountable for your actions.
I'm sorry, the Liberts I know are ALL selfish prix, and think that dems and Repubs are the same, which is totally idiotic.
