That's New Hampshire's state motto. Live Free or Die.
That's a pretty strict comment.
I'm assuming this motto was clutch when they were voting on whether or not to allow gay marriage. I'm assuming the debate went a little like this:
Anti Gay Marriage Senator: We can't let gays marry.
Pro Gay Marriage Senator #1: We, the residents of New Hampshire, have to stick together.
Pro Gay Marriage Senator #2: And we must follow our motto!
Pro Gay Marriage Senator #1: As a state we must all live free, or we must all die!
Anti Gay Marriage Senator: You're right... I forgot that in New Hampshire there were only those two options...
HUZZAH FOR NEW HAMPSHIRE!
