State Rep admits she's against freedom in 'Live Free or Die' New Hampshire

See also

On Sunday, New Hampshire State Representative Suzanne Mercer Vail actually posted on her official Facebook page that she was against freedom. Her post didn't gain traction until today when Granite Staters started commenting. Apparently Rep Vail (D-Nashua) believes that freedom is already 'maxed out' in New Hampshire. She bashes 'Free Staters' for actually wanting more freedom. Meanwhile Rep Vail tells voters they should check out her votes in the House. They are listed below. Clearly, she's against freedom and for higher taxes, more spending and more laws.

It would be comical if it wasn't true. This is the mindset of many Democrats in the New Hampshire Legislature. They are against freedom, liberty, less government and lower taxes. Interesting that these 'Nanny Staters' attack 'Free Staters'. Of course, Free Staters are the antithesis of big government, more spending, increased taxes and less freedoms. The bigotry against Free Staters by Democrats and some establishment Republicans is disturbing actually. New Hampshire has thrived on small government and individual liberties but somehow that's become bad ideology?

Below is the list of votes that Vail wants Granite Staters to review. These votes hurt residents of New Hampshire but somehow she's proud of them (as are all Democrats). It will be up to voters to decide in November if they want representatives who will fight for their freedom or those, such as Vail, who will continue to vote bills into place that take away their freedoms.

These are just votes from 2013. Imagine the damage Democrats like Vail are going to do throughout 2014 and beyond if they maintain control of the House? Most Granite Staters have no idea what is going on in the State House. It's time people start paying attention. With votes like the above, your freedom and money in your wallet are disappearing one at a time. Compare Free Staters to Nanny Staters and decide which represent the 'Live Free or Die' state. You shouldn't be surprised by the answer.
