You should read the article before you link it. The very last paragraph stands in absolute defiance of your assertion.

well this statement is pretty bad

It would be better for America as well as for the South if Southerners rediscovered their hidden past and took up the painful task of refashioning an identity that no longer inspires their countrymen.

what's so bad about believing in freedom and personal liberty?

Southern political passions have always been rooted in sometimes extreme ideas of morality, which has meant, in recent years, abortion and school prayer

The tone was pretty condescending. I'm a liberal and a southerner. I should be his target audience, but I am pissed off after reading this.

re: Talk about your condescending A-holes at The New Yorker


so why don't guys like the writer of that article be more specific?

it's like the elitists who always imply that conservatives (even solely economic ones like the original tea party) are racists

and let's not act like traditional/GOP conservatives are isolated in the south



it's not a southern/northern thing. it's a city/non-city thing

It's just easier to stay a few decades in the past and push the easy button.

Also that stuff about "solidity" was complete BS. He acts like the "South" has always been a single monolithic entity.

They should just let us go... separate from the nation. It's got to be killing them so much that we are holding them back. Just think, without the south their dreams can be had.

So you don't agree with one man, one vote? Maybe some formula taking into account acreage would be more fair?

Just curious, how in the hell did you get this..

From this?

quote:

When his point was clear that he meant that "red" votes aren't limited to the South?
