Republican run States, with almost all of them with low unemployment rates (except Nevada).

Gee, I wonder why?

Just kidding - we all know why.

What's so desirable about living in a city like Chicago, NY or LA?  Crime, pollution, fricking traffic everywhere, lines everywhere, cost of everything is twice as much.....

Liberally moronic cities offer rape by way of taxes in return for eventual bankruptcy

I have lived in Las Vegas my entire life.  It is only hot about three months out of the year.  The rest of the year is a dream compared to most of the country. I don't have to scrape ice off my car or shovel the drive way due to snow.  Las Vegas is a metro are of over two million people; therefore, I wouldn't call it sparse.  Additionally, most people who live here don't gamble.  I am over fifty years old and have gambled twice in my life.  Get off the Strip, and Las Vegas is like any other city in the U.S.  Why do most people assume that if you live in Las Vegas, then you must gamble.  The tax rates are low here and the economy is picking up considerably.

Humm... let's see pay 9 to 13% in state taxes California or pay Zero in NV, TX, etc.  Gee, what should I do?  Well, if you make money you should leave that state.  If you need welfare you should move there.  So now we have a state losing it's revenue and increasing it's welfare costs.  How do you spell D.E.T.R.O.I.T?

I see where Birmingham, AL finally made the top list for something, instead of being last for a change. More folks down here are poorer than in other places, I've been to. We are last in education and near last in the job markets. But sadly, we have the highest rate of diabetes in the nation but, next to Mississippi, we have the highest population of obesity, also. Unfortunately, we are ranked #1 in more bad things than good. But at least, most of the people in some parts of this state are the friendliest anywhere I've seen next to the state of Texas.

The WORST part about an article like this is that it encourages LIBIOTS to MOVE to these locations and others like it...

As they've proven over time, they'll eventually destroy it, with their views...Last time I checked MOST Lib footholds are on the decline, population wise, while Conservative "wastelands" are being invaded by the scum LIBS.

IF You LIKE Detroit, Chicago, NYC, and those things so much, then why the hell do you keep leaving them and coming to those "other" places. 

Old statement...Difference between a Yankee and a Damn Yankee...Yankees just visit, Damn Yankees STAY....

SAME can be said of LIBS...Come VISIT, but LEAVE and take your corrupt views back to your lovely city.

In Myrtle Beach, S.C. 80% of the real-estate taxes are paid by the penny sales tax.

My deadbeat Dad lives in Alaska, never paid a dime for my brother and I in child support.  Last time I talked to him, he was trying to convince us that it was the best place to live because the government pays you to live there.

Funny how these cities have such a small percentage of minorities. Just a coincidence? I doubt it.

We don't pay any taxes living at Area 51...

Americans complain about costs and they are going up but it is still the cheapest western nation, if you travel to Europe, Australia, New Zealand or England you will see what I mean, at least 5-10 more $ for everything. However with the amount of people, low wages and competition here, prices should not be rising at all

The only reason taxes are low in Vegas is because the city makes so much on gambling and hotel revenue.  I hate Vegas. 

All the others are nice cities.  Not necessarily a good climate, but nice cities nevertheless.

Cities with the highest taxes are almost always filthy crime-ridden crap holes.

Billings, Cheyenne and Sioux Falls would be okay to live in (or near...I'm done with living inside of city limits any more) but Anchorage is a bit too far removed and Vegas...is a sht hole!
