Americans Are Migrating To More Free Republican States


Go figure. Keep your money. More freedom. Less government intrusion. Sounds like a good plan to me. Now if we can just turn entitlements over to the states so we can have liberal states and conservative states. And people can pick how they want to live!
Check it out:

Americans are migrating from less-free liberal states to more-free conservative states, where they are doing better economically, according to a new study published Thursday by the George Mason University’s Mercatus Center.

The “Freedom in the 50 States” study measured economic and personal freedom using a wide range of criteria, including tax rates, government spending and debt, regulatory burdens, and state laws covering land use, union organizing, gun control, education choice and more.

It found that the freest states tended to be conservative “red” states, while the least free were liberal “blue” states.
