Mostly North Eastern States and 3 deep South States! How many of these 10 are Blue States and how many are Red States? I can fully see why 4 in 10 Americans say their views are growing more conservative!

Despite the results of the 2008 presidential election, Americans, by a 2-to-1 margin, say their political views in recent years have become more conservative rather than more liberal, 39% to 18%, with 42% saying they have not changed.

Most Liberal States Are Least Free Says Study

1aaaanan

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.”

When weighing personal freedom alone, Alaska is the clear winner, while Maryland brings up the rear. Read More

Don’t look as if the Liberals are doing such a great job on keeping freedom for Americans! Liberals are for high taxes, government middling and Obama big spending, oh! and don’t forget the regulations!
Sarah Palin looks to be doing great by Alaska and keeping people’s freedom!

Maryland state senator Lisa Gladden (DEM) says she doesn’t care that her state is broke, Obama is going to be president

Apparently, poverty, crime, taxes, homelessness, and unemployment are of secondary concern to Baltimore State Senator Lisa Gladden, a democrat, who showed up at the opening of the General Assembly session sporting a flashy Obama watch.

But it wasn’t so much the accoutrements she was wearing, it was what she said to a reporter from the local Fox affiliate that rings of the thoughtless and all too often clueless nature of our elected officials.

Gladden, in a video interview you can see here, told the intrepid political reporter, “It doesn’t matter if the state of Maryland is broke as long as Barack Obama is going to be President of the United States – this is great!” Read More

This is what I been saying all along is that people was voting for Barack Obama because he was black and not the issues! You can tell this by the Barack supporters on the blogs when they defend him no matter what he does! Would that not be called a racist vote?
