Doesn't NH also have an elected member of the socialist party in congress? Or did they at one time? Interesting if they do/did.
When i was in college during a talk about freedom Intro to Communism class a girl said "Everybody here talks about freedom this and freedom that...you guys have laws that require you to cut your lawns and govern which types of vehicles you can park in your driveway." She was from Serbia. While i have no problem justifying either of those laws I get what she was saying.

NC's overall is 18. It doesn't always feel like we are in the top 20. I feel regulated to death.
