Re: Most Free Least Free Freedom in the 50 States
New York is probably the least free state because it is located right next to the province of Quebec, which is the least free province in Canada. This is Canadian influence hard at work undermining American freedoms.


[link to mercatus.org]

New York is by far the least free state in the Union. It has also experienced the most interstate emigration of any state over the last decade. New York has by far the highest taxes in the country. Property, selective sales, individual income, and corporate-income taxes are particularly high. Spending on public welfare, hospitals, electric power, transit, employee retirement, and “other and unallocable” expenses are well above national norms. Only Alaska has more government debt as a percentage of the economy. On personal freedoms, gun laws are extremely restrictive, but marijuana laws are better than average, while tobacco laws are extremely strict, and cigarette taxes are the highest in the country. Motorists are highly regulated, and homeschool regulations are excessive, but nondrug victimless-crimes arrests are low. New York has the strictest health-insurance community-rating regulations

31st here,,

5 stars to help rectify the situtation man.

nice find

peace
Each time a person stands for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he or she sends forth a tiny ripple of hope. And crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance. Few are willing to embrace the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.

Re: Most Free Least Free Freedom in the 50 States
Pennsylvania is freer than all six of its neighboring states but has slipped since 2007. The state is mediocre on fiscal policy but much better than average on government employment. Transportation and social-services spending are notably higher than average, even given the state’s density, grant funding, and poverty rate. For a northeastern state, its gun-control laws are not awful, while marijuana sentencing is reasonably humane, even though the state has not decriminalized it at all. Pennsylvania has dramatically liberalized gambling, adding quite a bit to the state treasury. The state’s homeschool laws are perhaps the worst in the country, and its private-school regulations are not much better. Pennsylvania is one of only three states to have no form of community rating in small group and individual health insurance (Hawaii and Virginia are the other two). However, mandates are rather high and have been rising in recent years, raising the price of health-insurance policies by at least 42.9 percent. Occupational licensing is rare. Eminent domain has been partially reformed, but asset-forfeiture law is quite bad. Smoking bans have recently been put into place, but there is a “ventilated area” exception for restaurants, and bars are simply required to have nonsmoking sections.
