Gov. Sarah Palin Had 3 Rallies In N.H.

DOVER, N.H. - Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin said Wednesday she feels a kinship with the moose-hunting, tax-hating voters of New Hampshire who gave John McCain his first primary victory.

At the first of three rallies, the Alaska governor said New Hampshire's state motto, "Live Free or Die," would be a good motto for her state.

"You're a lot like the people of Alaska. We all love good moose hunting, I know that. We both so enjoy our great lands, with clean water, fresh air and abundant wildlife and good fishing. We love being outdoors, and I know that is New Hampshire also," she said. "And we both take seriously your state's motto _ I think it should be ours also _ "Live Free or Die."

Alaska's state motto is "North to the Future."

The two states are the only two with neither a general income nor a general sales tax, and Palin played up that history in repeating her argument that Democratic nominee Barack Obama would raise taxes.

The rallies all had a huge turnout similar to what we have been seeing. Fantastic!!!
