Video Claims there are 6 Reasons Not to Move to Missouri
The Show-Me State of Missouri has a lot going for it, but a YouTube video claims you shouldn't move to Missouri if you aren't ready to handle these six negative things...
The video was posted to YouTube earlier this year and has over 13 thousand views, it was posted by a YouTube channel called Living St. Louis, and claims there are six major negatives to living in Missouri. The video is on the longer side (just over 16 and a half minutes long) and is geared towards people who are considering moving to Missouri, and is narrated by a man born in Missouri and has lived most of his life in the St. Louis area.
The six negatives that he lists are Missouri isn't a popular state to move to, Missouri has slow growth, Missouri is boring, Weather in the Midwest, Tornadoes, and finally Missouri's Taxes.
Now let me start by saying I live in Quincy, IL just at the Illinois/Missouri border, and spend a ton of time in Missouri with great towns like Hannibal, Palmyra, Canton, and so on, but I don't personally live there. BUT I feel like this guy is stretching a bit, he can only come up with 6 negative things about Missouri and two of them are the same thing, Tornados are a part of the weather the last time I checked. Also on the taxes point, yes Missouri has a higher than average statewide tax rate, its taxes are still less on things like tobacco, gasoline, and others that make it more affordable to live.
Do you think this video is a good guide for people who are considering a move to the Show-Me State?
