Too bad that the states at the top of the Freedom Index are cold.
I’d like to see a list like this from the Cato Institute.
Missouri’s 5th; our summers are humid scorchers but our winters are comparatively mild , at least compared to NH and SD. We also flunked the Brady Bunch’s “sensible gun laws” test a few weeks back , with a score of only +4 .:-) Worst (ie best) possible score is -4, so we have a bit of work, but at least we didn’t pass.
