So You Wanna Be like the "Low Tax" Southern States? Then Take a Look at Mississippi folks.

The southern states are magnets for business. And well they should be. Republicans control their state economies and believe in the free market system. One such state, Mississippi, is a glowing example of what your state can look like if you just allowed the Republicans another chance to prove their system of economics, along with a little dab of social engineering.

According to AP:

Mississippi’s annual average income of $24,530, was the lowest in the country.

Mississippi had the highest rate of poverty, 21.1 percent, compared with the U.S. average of 9.8 percent.

Mississippi had the lowest average internet usage, 46 percent, compared to the U.S. average of 61.7 percent

Mississippi has the highest teen birth rate, which is 60 percent higher than the national average in 2006, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Some experts have blamed abstinence-only health education.

Let’s see now; low wages, unwanted pregnancy, uninformed and poverty stricken.

What’s not to like if you’re a major corporation?
