Listener Comments:

I left Ohio for SC and have never looked back, although I miss some people, but have many new friends here. Reasons for leaving: Quality of life,High housing cost,High taxes with no reform,Inept govt,Poor work environment ruined by union featherbedding,Loss of jobs, freedoms being limited more and more, only fair health care. MOST IMPORTANT--NO HOPE OF A BRIGHTER FUTURE!! In Ohio the inmates are running the asylum and they will soon run it all and demand other states support the socialism and "mandates" of limiting freedom to the least common denominator, and the most government control. Ohio, like others, has gone from promoting the general welfare to mandating special interest welfare, and provide for the common defense to no defense, and from life,liberty, and happiness to corrupt influence,distrust of the people, and govt of the elite, by the elite, and for the elite. Sorry, but there is not much hope left in Ohio and where there is none, the people perish.
