We're Number 1! We're Number 1!

New York has taken the gold ring for least freedom in all 50 states by a wide margin according to a poll published by George Mason university. The report available here compares the economic, and personal freedoms available in each of the 50 states as well as the amount of paternalism (read nanny state) in each. The rankings are explained at length but key factors are property protection, gun rights, and education.

It should be little surprise that the live free or die state of New Hampshire (New Hampster for those of you under 7) was the free'est state of the lot. Looks like the Free State porcupines have chosen the best venue to move to.
