Because they elect and re-elect polticians who never met a tax, social program and public worker's union they didn't like.

When they ultimately get taxed out of their home states they move to places like NC and start the taxing cycles all over again in order to re-create the shangri-la from which they escaped.

It's not really as simple as you make it out to be. Fiscal conservatism has gone by the wayside in both political parties. Both spend too much, and now it is just a matter of how fast taxes go up.

You live in NH. I live in NJ.

Try doing a lengthy stint of real taxpayer time in NJ and then we'll talk.

NJ taxes? You have by sympathy. Yes, NH has some interesting politics, but is becoming just another blue state unfortunately. It's too bad we don't have a viable 3rd party in this country.
