What, you don't want us from more Progressive states to move in and insist that TN institute an income tax to make things more fair?

And whats with your ridiculously low property taxes?

You guys really believe in starving your state government and curtailing your politician's ability to spread the money around to those who want it, don't you?

Amen to that!!! However, my husband says the bugs at my farm in TN have war insignia painted on the sides of their body and that four of them could carry him off. ROFL!!! The bugs in TN never bothered me... even while mowing five acres. The ticks and the Asian beetle swarm, well, that's another story!! But still a better trade off as far as I'm concerned.

Is there data to support the initial claim. Florida's population is booming, while ours is growing at right about the national average. More anecdotally, I can't think of a single person I know from FL. OH on the other hand.....

I guess it depends on one's definition of "so many."

I'll look for the data later, but in regards of internal migration, Florida was one of Tennessee's 4 largest contributers last time I checked. I think there were a fair number here moving to Florida, too...but the net rate was definitely in our favor.

Yes, Florida is still booming (amazingly)...but it should also be noted that Florida has a much higher rate of international migration than we do...and if I'm not mistaken, a larger growth % via natural increase.

Florida has a lot of movers...both in and out. Some are former transplants looking to get out of the hell they "accidentally" moved into (or helped create, depending on perspective), and even some are natives, put off by the number of transplants that moved there.

I know several people from Florida (mostly natives, off the top of my head). But yes, I think in general, Tennessee is more popular for those in the Midwest. Particularly Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois.


However, simply due to their massive size, we also have quite a number of Floridians, Californians, and New Yorkers.

We are relocating from the Gulf Coast of Florida and are currently looking for affordable areas that are family friendly and have low crime. Preferable a small town. The reasons we are leaving, many have mentioned, schools, taxes, weather. The number one reason for us is the crime here. Our county had something like 25 murders last year, and low and behold, one hour into 2013...the first murder of the year. I know nowhere is perfect, I just want to feel safe again. Any suggestions? We can buy with cash in the $150's.

Except for Memphis/West TN, which is losing far more residents than it gains.
