      As long as I'm going on this exercise I'll try adding Gross State
      Product as multiple of school spending. This actually looks like the
      best quantification of fiscal liberalism I've ever seen, however
      contraception is socially, not fiscally, liberal.
      Putting it in rank by GDP/ED$:

      Washington DC, $2010 per person per year 78.972
      Delaware, 1739 39.603
      Nevada, 1337 36.587
      North Carolina, 1185 36.546
      Louisiana, 1376 35.632
      Tennessee, $1147 34.208

      Arizona, 1166 32.607
      Washington state, 1459 32.573
      Colorado, 1472 32.498
      Utah, 1189 32.480
      South Dakota, 1323 31.893
      Virginia, 1564 31.514
      N. Dakota, 1388 31.152

      United States average (mean), 1773 27.732

      Pennsylvania, 1757 24.285
      South Carolina, 1456.79 23.422
      Indiana, 1650 23.421

      Michigan, 1969 19.395
      Virgin Islands, 1389 18.728
      Northern Mariana Islands, $714 15.81
      American Samoa, 1140 8.59

      So betcha didn't know Hawaii and Washington State are more fiscally
      conservative than Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, South Carolina, and
      Montana, and that the most fiscally conservative place in the US by miles
      in Washington DC!!!!

      Subject: Re: state rankings in spending per RESIDENT

      I have managed to calculate and rank state (and territory) public school
      spending per resident, which should take into account both contraception
      policy and fiscal conservatism and serve as low tax destinations for
      childfree taxpayers. However they do seem to be more effected by fiscal
      conservatism than by contraception policy and so is not sufficiently
      divergent from the already published rankings on spending per student.
      Perhaps school spending as a percentage of gross state product would
      produce more divergent results. It does show however that liberalism is
      more about school spending than it is about contraception. Does anyone
      have access to such a ranking?
