    I would think it would be between New York, Illinois, and California, any other candidates? My birth state of Michigan was up there too, but it looks like they're making some changes and moving in the right direction. Tough call, still gotta go with CA tho.

    It depends on whether you like freedom (economic and personal) or not. If freedom is important to you, here's the bottom 10:

    1. New York
    2. New Jersey
    3. Rhode Island
    4. California
    5. Maryland
    6. Hawaii
    7. Washington
    8. Massachusetts
    9. Illinois
    10. Connecticut

    Arizona. I love living here, state and county politics are fun to watch. It's republican on republican crime. They've pushed the limit so far that they are turning on each other.

    Which State is the most fucked up politically? My guess is any State that favored Obama in the last election.

    You guessed wrong, research Arizona politics. There's a reason Palin may run for John Kyl's senate seat.
