The south was part of the Constitution and it was not made for only the north--it was written for one nation, one country. The United State of America. To secede was committing treason.
Bull crap yankee NO WHERE in the Constitution did it prohibit secession.

The southern states wanted to have slaves. The North said no. So, the North kicked the South's ass. That is all to it.

No the north kicked the civilians ass in their barbaric terrorist shermans march. That was the only way they would the yankees could win. The South kicked the North's ass the majority of the war. As far as slaves The north had slaves also! NJ, Maryland, Delaware, Kentucky, Mo, WV and Washington DC all had slaves and remained loyal to the union. Learn your history before you make ignorant statements like that.

I think everyone just needs to learn to get a long. No one is perfect nor is anyone any better than anyone else. We all have to learn that playing the blame game and finding fault with each other will not lead to anything but frustration, despair and being depressed or unhappy. Read this great article on how to truly be happy: http://davidmaillie.com/how-to-be-truly-happy...

To share some insight on this topic.
I certainly believe the intelligence level is significantly lower in the south. One would ask, how do you back this claim? Look up the highest rated high school education, the top five or top ten for that matter are from the north. I know I can hear it now, "you're just a dumb Yankee ". Furthermore, look at the states with the highest poverty level. I'll give you one guess at the geographic location. States with people with the poorest health. Any guess?

As a Yankee soon to be moving south, I can say this jerk yankee (and many more like him) are the reason I'm leaving... combined with the taxes, the moron politicians running the show, cost of living etc. I can't wait to embrace southern living... being polite, no one honking horns or giving you the finger, BBQ and sweet tea sound good to me over what I'm used to. God bless my future home in Dixie!

We have been relocating to the South snce you people decided in teh 1860's that you did not want to be Americans anymore because you thought you had the God-givn right to OWN Black people.
You tore down teh American flag and you burned it and replaced it with your hateful "stars and bars"
Well, guess what...WE WON that war, and now we own YOU. We come to teh South and we steal the good jobs because most of you don;t have a decent education.
In the old days, they called us "Carpetbaggers"
Oh my, the condescension! As I am sure you are aware, a very small percentage of southerners actually owned slaves. The impetus behind the Civil War had nothing to do with northern moral superiority, but was primarily about the means of production in the north being mechanized vs. the need for physical labor in the south. Neither I nor anyone with whom I am personally familiar believes that it was right for one person to own another.
As for my education, I hold both Bachelors and Masters degrees from a southern university and scored in the top 2% nationally on the verbal section of the graduate school entrance exam. I would hold my education and that of many fellow southerners up against any Yankee's, and would be glad to pit my native intelligence against yours or any other northerner's. I think it is fascinating that the south is portrayed by you as rife with ignorance and mean-spiritedness, when you could be painted with that same brush due to the content of your statements.
In conclusion, I need to add that I am a fiercely proud southerner. I fit all kinds of negative stereotypes, including the fact that I was raised as, and remain, a Southern Baptist (Gasp! You should have known!), have many family members who served/are serving in the military, call my mother "Mama" and called my father "Daddy" until the day he went home to be with the Lord, still say, "Yes ma'am/sir" "No ma'am/sir, " and pull over for passing funeral processions. I am sorry that everyone in our great nation wasn't raised the same way. Then, perhaps, a modicum of civility would still exist in our land.

When I first lived in the South, I just figured Southerns just talked funny. After getting to know Southerners, I have come to realize they are much less intelligent and less civilized than Northerners
They speak a language that barely resembles English and they act like violent animals.
Is it the heat, or what?
well i thought it was all Americans that bastardized the english language

Clearly, you have never been to Western Europe. That assertion of your is ridiculous.

Notice I said ancestors! They had a completely different accent than the people in the UK speak today. Or did they not teach you that in football player history class.

And by the way, Timmy the booger eater is, no doubt, a closet homosexual. Psychology 101.
