Rep. Judson Dexter, R-Swanzey doesn’t want the New Hampshire state motto to be put on the state flag. He says Live Free or Die is divisive! That it’s unworthy of a place on the state flag. Even though it’s been the states motto since 1945! The words were first written by General John Stark, in 1809. He wrote, “Live Free Or Die; Death Is Not The Worst of Evils.”
But Dexter says, “The words ‘Live free or die’ are a politically and emotionally charged phrase that we know has caused the state legal problems in the past,” He wrote those words for the House Executive Departments and Administration Committee, of which he is a member.
I’ve always thought that New Hampshire had the coolest motto. I always wanted to say I was from NH just because of the cool motto! I mean, NJ ain’t too bad, Liberty and Prosperity, but come on, Live Free Or Die! It’s just too cool. It always seemed to me that Live Free or Die was what this country was founded on, but now, thanks to PC BS, it’s a political statement.
Think about this now. What’s next, New York’s motto is “Higher”. I heard NORML wants to adopt that one. Wyoming’s is “Equal Rights”. That’s a seriously political statement. Nebraska, “Equality before the law”. Good luck Nebraska. Ohio is doomed, “With God, all things are possible”. Nevada, “All For Our Country”. Not in this day and age! Oklahoma, “Work Conquers All”. Work, you expect me to work? How about Maryland, Fatti maschi, parole femmine. The literal translation is Manly deeds, womanly words or Deeds are male, words are female. That one should be struck down immediately!
You get the picture. PC BS, is so, PC BS!
