i actually have the new hampshire state motto, 'live free or die' on a decal on my suv. (well, actually mine says
i'd tell the citizens of dixville notch and other communities to keep their motto in mind as they enter the voting booth, only then it'd just be jonestown in each precinct. say you believe that, and you and your beautiful essential americanism waddle into the booth and are confronted with the list of candidates ...
maybe we can turn it outwards. sic semper tyrranis. our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain. let me say that this is the only american political tradition in which i have the least interest, or which i do not regard as directly evil. but this is actually at the very origin and heart of the american political tradition, despite the recent revival of hamiltonian monarchism. are you really going to make me prove that, or do you remember your 5th-grade textbook? that's why it's enshrined on ancient state flags and so on. not to go all xenophobic on your socialist ass, but believing this is what it means to be an american, all it means to be an american.
