New Hampshire is the best state in the USA. If you think otherwise tell me what state is better and we'll debate.
dtaylor971

Con

Let's go! I live in California, and it is a helluva lot better than New Hampshire!

You failed to give a definition of "better." I will conclude it means more products produced, size, population, and income
You also failed to give a definition of state. I will conclude it means a state in the U.S only, not a Canadian State or a state of being or mind. I will also assume that it ONLY means state, not the quality of the people living in it.


Why California has more products produced than New Hampshire
Only Texas passes California in products produced [1]. We produce grapes for wine, dairy for things such as milk and yogurt, and simply too much agriculture to count. New Hampshire does not produce much. The only export it beats California in is dairy [2]. In fact, New Hampshire ranks 48th in exports. California ranks second.
Verdict: Pretty clear advantage to California

Size
This is no secret. California beats out New Hampshire in size easily. California is a nice 163,696 [3] square miles of land. New Hampshire only covers a measly 9,350 square miles [4]. California ranks third in size, only to Alaska and Texas [5]. New Hampshire is 45th.
Verdict: Indisputable advantage to California

Population
Much like size, California gives New Hampshire a whipping in population. California has 37,000,000 people [6], which ranks 1st in all 50 states. New Hampshire ranks down with New Jersey and Delaware at 42nd, with 1,300,000 people. It also beats them at Population/SQ mile. California has 226 people per square mile. New Hampshire has just 144 people per square mile.
Verdict: Indisputable advantage to California

Income
This is the only topic that New Hampshire has an advantage in. The income of a normal Californian is $43,000, and New Hampshire is $44,000 [7]. But we have the 9th most richest guy in all of U.S.A [8]. That says a ton for how successful you can get in California.
Verdict: Small advantage for New Hampshire

Your turn!

New Hampshire is a good state, but is it the best? I don't think so. Personally, I find South Carolina to be one of the best. There is a lot to see and do, and the people are really nice.

I live in north Carolina , and trust me it is so flippen peaceful here. now I am not saying there is any thing wrong in California ( for all I care I want to live if my parents ever win the lottery ). sure there are unruly people here , but not that many.

sincerely,
