    While this doesn't come as any surprise to those who pay attention, liberal governments tend to suppress personal freedoms.



    Newsmax.com - Study: Most Liberal States Are Least Free

    According to a new study released by the Mercatus Center of George Mason University, some of the most liberal U.S. states rank lowest when it comes to personal freedom.

    The study, which calls itself the “first-ever comprehensive ranking of the American states on their public policies affecting individual freedoms in the economic, social, and personal spheres,” made a host of findings:

    The freest states in the country are New Hampshire, Colorado, and South Dakota, which together achieve a virtual tie for first place. All three states feature low taxes and government spending -- and middling levels of regulation and paternalism.
    New York is the least overall free by a considerable margin, followed by New Jersey, Rhode Island, California, and Maryland.
    Unfortunately, say the report authors, these freedom-disadvantaged states “make up a substantial portion of the total American population. Moreover, these bottom five states have considerable ground to make up even to move off this ignoble list, let alone into a creditable position in the rankings.”

    Duh!!:rolleyes:
