"Well, Gov. Benson lost the election in part because he supported them. That should tell you something right there."
This is the typical suspicion of outsiders trying to come in and "take over," a sentiment with which I am quite familiar, as a native of a rural southern county next to a growing metro area... we don't care for the yankees coming in and trying to take over, either. But, who poses the greater threat to the unique New Hampshire political culture, though, Free Staters or Massholes? I'd be praying for more Free Staters, to counterbalance the tidal wave of socialist idiots cresting your way from Boston, myself.
I hate 'em both. Most of us do, actually. I resent that they feel they can take over, and what they'll find is that if they are going to come to power they will have to compromise their views a bit. Legalized drugs and prostitution? WE CAN'T EVEN GET E-Z PASS!
