Like others, I'll vote for Vermont, but I felt the need to state my uncompromising hatred for New Hampshire.

That has got to be one of the most retarded proposals I have read on this forum.

Don't worry, I'm sure more will crop up shortly.

Aside from the boring wealth and its reputation as the second home for all of the wealthy of New England, the state's political persona basically represents some of the absolute worst of American politics, from my perspective.

Self-important to the nth degree, swings like crazy (particularly on the state level), the state motto is the sort of hilarious stuff I expect teenage libertarians to live by ("Live Free or Die"? Give me a f**king. break.) but most of all, they're basically the Independent Voter of the fifty states. No real ideological tendency aside from drifting toward the one that looks more moderate and soft-spoken, following right through on the caricature of the Independent Voter that tends to make a decision based on the aesthetics of a candidate beyond anything else.

Because they're "independent minded!" You can't predict them! Those voters are on a higher plane of existence than the rest of us ideologues! They demand attention and excellence! You won't be putting them in any sort of box!

Gag.

ITT: People who have never been to Vermont (or any New England state) declaring it's "clearly" the best one.

I've never been to America though, let alone New England.

Born and raised.

Shame on the both of you, Scott and HC.

Because I could count, my nose was big, and I kept my bank account fullish
I told my mom, tears blurring my vision

Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?
