Freedom In America - The Freest States

Academia's utopian worldview often looks good in a classroom setting but, as real life has demonstrated over and over again, the laws of nature and nature's God still rule the universe - chaotic as it seems at times. America's "freedom labratories" - the states - demonstrate this in very practical ways:

. . . the freest states tended to be conservative "red" states, while the least free were liberal "blue" states.

The freest state overall, the researchers concluded, was North Dakota, followed by South Dakota, Tennessee, New Hampshire and Oklahoma. The least free state by far was New York, followed by California, New Jersey, Hawaii and Rhode Island.

Americans are gravitating toward states that have less-intrusive governments.

The data confirm what we all know in our bones: today's migration pattern follows an ancestral path.

Our forefathers left the Old World and came here to escape intrusive government's personal and economic oppression. They crossed oceans, rivers and mountains to find open land and freedom from excessive regulation and to escape burdensome taxation.

Today's migrants continue the same journey their fathers and grandfathers took, and they do it for the very same reasons.
