Technically, maybe. If you do avoid property tax by renting, I'm sure the landlord would calculate that into the rent.

Vermont definitely. Not just because I live there either (currently at Ft. Sill, OK). The liberal hippies are mostly imports from Mass, Connecticut and New Jersey, and are by and large clustered in Chittenden County and Windsor County. With the vast majority of the state being rural, it's easy to stay clear of anyone you don't care to associate with.

The very loose gun control laws have never, in my memory, been challenged on a state level either. It seems there are still some things sacred there.

I would be a little nervous moving to NH! A lot of MA-holes move over the boarder to NH. Then they start b**ching about how loose the gun laws are, and start voting their mind. NH has a very real chance of going the way of MA/ME in its gun laws. VT has soooo few gun laws, that they have a whole lot farther of a way to go. I would suspect that 10 years from now, VT will still be a whole lot less restrictive than NH.

Been there, done that with both states - 2 years in VT and 12 in NH. Moved to Georgia 18 years ago and will never (willingly) move back North.

I suppose if you put a gun to my head and made me choose I would have to say VT because there is a lot of truth to what biff is saying:

I have a similar dilemma. I'm in Western MA. the taxes here suck. starting wages for what I do are about 5 to 8 dollars an hour more anywhere else. The gun laws are made to be confusing to scare people away from firearm ownership. My girlfriend wants to move to florida (born again christian in-laws). I told her we should move to VT. She put her foot down fast; "Winters are cold enough in MA, do you really want to move further north?" I told her about their very lax gun laws. She could care less.

She wants to be able to have her mom watch our two little ones (for free) as opposed to $600+ a month for daycare. Plus we would both make a ton more money any where else. I just want out of MA.

VT
Negatives - Unfortunately, my wife is from VT. So I would be kicking MA laws and gaining in-laws. There are way too many hippies and rednecks for my taste. Everyone would hate me because I'm another Ma$$hole invading their state.

Positives - It is a very beautiful state and the hunting is out of this world. My grandmother-in-law lives on the side of a mountain called Deer Hill, guess why. If she would let me, I could bag a deer from her living room every time I visit. There are practically no gun laws so I can finally get cool stuff like Nighthawks and high capacity magazines. The only license you need is a hunting license. VT is number 49 on a list of highest crime rates involving a firearm.

NH
Negatives - Taxes suck. Even though there are "no taxes" on any goods and there is no income tax, they make up for it with property tax. And I want to buy enough land to hunt on. NH has more gun laws than VT. Their state monument fell down

Positives - NH is also a beautiful state with great hunting. Five star beaches. No taxes. Less gun laws than MA. Fireworks are legal. http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f13/new-hampshire-preparing-put-feds-notice-10605/

All joking aside, PLEASE add any positives or negatives you think would help in my decision. SERIOUSLY canebrake, this NOT a time to joke around!
But, but it snows in both of them :-) My wife and I are planning a move to Savannah at the end of this year.

I found another reason to leave mass. Our governor Devil Patrick wants to raise our tax on gasoline to $.51 per gallon. making it the highest gas tax in America.
WOW. I don't know what to say.

I haven't any desire to move to either state. I'm actually considering the planet Mercury. Less wages, better fellow workers.
