    Icon6 Best States for Personal Freedom

    Funny how the most anti-2A states in our country find themselves to also be the states with the least personal freedoms. Throughout history there has always been a direct connection between the loss of freedom and liberty for citizens and the surrendering of more power to the arrogant government elite who actually believe we're so stupid that they have to protect us from ourselves.

    States Ranked on Economic, Personal Freedom PRWeb – Sat, Mar 30, 2013
    This week, the Mercatus Center at George Mason University released "Freedom in the 50 States," including full state rankings on economic and personal freedom.

    Arlington, VA (PRWEB) March 29, 2013 State policies that limit economic and individual choices can have a profound impact on everyday citizens. With this in mind, "Freedom in the 50 States"—published this week by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University—provides the most comprehensive analysis available ranking states based on their economic and personal freedom. North Dakota comes out on top in this year’s index as the most free state in the country, followed by South Dakota, Tennessee, New Hampshire, and Oklahoma.
    New York is ranked as the state with the least liberty, due in large part to its high taxes, government debt, and poor economic regulation. California (49) doesn’t fare much better, and New Jersey (48), Hawaii (47), and Rhode Island (46) round out the bottom five. Overall Freedom Index Rankings:
