The John Locke Foundation just published its First In Freedom Index, a report that compares and ranks the relative freedom of all fifty states.
The North Carolina-based think tank says it has an institutional commitment to “individual liberty and limited, constitutional government,” weighed four different variables to compile the rankings.
To see their full results on all four variables visit http://ijr.com/2015/02/254129-state-rank-first-freedom-index/
Here is a graphic representation for the rankings for health care freedom:
George Mason University's Mercatus Center also released a “Freedom in the 50 States” map, that includes more than 200 economic and personal variables in their calculations.
The results from George Mason University on the 'least free' state agree with the John Locke Foundation, placing New York at the bottom. But the two lists differ on the 'most free' state, with Mercatus Center putting North Dakota first.
Health Freedom Idaho is dedicated to KEEPING IDAHO #1 in Health Freedom. We have seen the tide of vaccine mandates and liberty stealing legislation in the states that surround us and are well aware that Idaho's freedom can easily slip away in one legislative session.
