What I love about New Hampshire and what we have in common is our extreme love for liberty. You’re the state where the shot was heard around the world in Lexington and Concord. And you put a marker in the ground and paid with the blood of your ancestors the very first price that had to be paid to make this the most magnificent nation that has ever arisen in the annals of man in 5,000 years of recorded history.
– Michelle Bachmann, Presidential hopeful, speaking to an audience in New Hampshire (note: New Hampshire, not Massachusetts). One almost begins to pity the GOP for having such members in its midst. On the other hand, it is the Tea Party that claims to want to return to the intention of the founders. One wonders what they know about the founders of this country.
