Taxes: comparatively low

There is no other state that can compete on all these items. Nevada wins hands down.
Agreed.

Just like the murder laws.

Freedom is what counts
What are you talking about? Any place that is truly free would have loose alcohol laws

So executing prostitutes and murderers are equally weighted in keeping society safe? Is that what you're saying? And stores selling a six pack of Bud Lite before noon on Sunday?

Here in Texas I cannot buy alcohol before noon on Sunday. That is NOT freedom. The grocery stores aren't allowed to carry hard liquor, only beer and wine.

Back in Louisiana you can purchase liquor 24x7x365, there's no bar closing time (ever been to New Orleans?) and grocery stores have liquor.

Freedom to purchase alcohol is a very important factor for freedom...

Nevada wins overall.

Seems easier to me but I have no knowledge on the process so may be replying in ignorance

That's better than Colorado, where you can *never* buy wine in grocery stores. You also can't buy decent beer in grocery stores, any day of the week. I'm talking about real beer; not Odouls, or pyss-water Bud and Miller Lite. Colorado is lame.

I'd second New Mexico as well. Apart from the economic side of things, this state is about as "leave me alone" as one could get when it comes to doing the particular things you mentioned. After having lived in SoCal for a good chunk of my life, the feeling was incomparable.
Now that I'm faced with possibly having to go to a state with more CA-like prices and regulations for better pay, I'm faced with an all-out fear.
