#23 FL

The only good thing about this place is the view, and lax(still restrictive in south) gun laws.

Wow... California sucks at pretty much everything.
(Except drugs) which is no good anyways.
--Also probably why there are no jobs

Least free state in US.

New York is by far the least free state in the Union. It is therefore no surprise that New York residents have been heading for the exits: 9.0 percent of the state’s 2000 population, on net, left the state for another state between 2000 and 2011, the highest such figure in the nation.

New York has, by a wide margin, the highest taxes in the country: 14.0 percent of income, three and a half standard deviations above the national mean. New York is also the most indebted state, setting its own record high in FY 2010 at 33.2 percent of income.

I just found a new job after a year of looking. I'm cooking at a horrible corporate restaurant and my training wage is a whopping 8.50/hr. I'm sure it'll get me far
but I'll be saving every thing I possibly can to try to be part of the percent leaving this state.

The crappy corporate restaurant has franchises nationwide though, so maybe I can get to a more free state after I save money and transfer!

I'm confused by your comment.

You claim bias, but apparently without evidence. If the study was only about gun rights, and red states were at the top, would you claim bias?

I checked one state and found that one of their recommendations was to liberalize marijuana laws. That doesn't sound like a Republican bias.

The study also allows you to adjust the weight of the various measures used in the study. In effect, you could create your own. Would you please go back and adjust the study to show that the most free states were blue states? Oh, and tell us how you did it.

I looked at the top 8 "most free" states, and the 8 "least free." (I stopped at 8 because it was getting tiresome.) All of the top 8 states had a net plus immigration, more people were coming to live in the state than were leaving. All 8 states on the bottom of the list had a net minus on immigration. Abandoning ship?
