yes, this is comparable to the situation in the US. I definitely have seen Obama advocating a 75% tax on people making over a million... I mean, that's like a cornerstone of his fiscal cliff plan, right?

Most of the states GDP roughly compares with the population of that state. South Carolina is about where it should be. Population in the mid 20's and GDP in the mid 20's. North Carolina is 10th in pop, and 10th in GDP.

Good gosh guys.

It was an example. I just off the cuff picked a southern state where lots of companies relocate as an example of how money from around the world will seek a safe place.

Man, tis the season to be anal around here.

You guys google, snopes, wikipedia to your hearts content.

The only thing holding South Carolina back is a higher educated workforce. If South Carolina had a RTP with the college base like the Triangle, they'd be dangerous.

Yeah man, same for Mississippi and Alabama and Louisiana and Arkansas and all those other shithole "conservative" (or in your definition - Republican) states.

Poor uneducated people are poor uneducated people whether they are are all lumped together in a city or spread out in rural areas of poor states. It's the percentages that are the kicker.

Okay, maybe I should have said Texas. Again, point was that money will look for better places to live and do business.

Can we just focus on the fact that the original article is pure baseless sensationalism?
