for your edification: http://americanhistory.about.com/od/..._civil_war.htmRCarter I ain't got nothing against you, so don't take this personally.
Good ol boys claim to live by the gun, but they rarely shoot humans. Up here in the North it's a killing field in MANY areas......Bullets are flying all day every day. Everywhere, not just a few cities like in the South. People love guns up here. They're angry and homicidal.
Jesus, dudes from NYC and Philly had to show you guys how to sell dope, for God's sake. You guys are like 15 years behind us in that stuff.
Californians bust on hicks more than northerners do. Really, I used to live there.
Yeah, yeah yeah.........I have heard this so many times, but yeah slavery was the main root of southern discontent. The whole region's economy was based on it.
So what were the top 3 or 4 reasons that came before slavery? What policies of Lincoln pissed-off the south? Be specific.....
Umm, Charlotte, Atlanta and other southern cities are very white collar and are leading places in the tech industries. You do realize that every state has urban and rural areas, right? We have areas of washing machine littered front lawns in New Jersey. And I see 50 deer stickers on the back windows of pick-up trucks everyday.
There's no big difference in attitudes and culture, unless you're one of them alligator killers we see on TV.
If you would have succeded from the union you would have gone under in ten years. You had no manufacturing. You would have been shunned, eventaully by other nations for your slavery issues. You would have been outcasts with a cotton based economy. The south would not have prospered. God, watch The Jerry Springer show these days. Can you imagine what it would be like today if the south had won?
Hey, what's the difference between a porcupine and a pick-up truck?
The pricks on the pick-up truck are on the inside !!!
LOL LOL LOL HA HA HA HA LOL LOL LOL HA HA HA
Hey, Rcarter relax, dawg. You guys still wouldn't win a war. Actually your statements are border-line treasonous......FBI, get this guy........
BTW the south would crush the north easily nowadays.

Every reason there was slavery-dependant/influenced.........
Why would the south crush the north? Dude, if you just take all the "Blue" states vs all the "red" states......the blue has everything. The money, the power, the influence, the infrastucture, the education..........

No but it makes him better at shooting Yankees!. Then when pushed to far the lunatic comes out the the Hulk. Keep that in mind. I remember when I was a kid seeing something may grandfateher had form the "old" days that had basically a ranking sheet for how many points you got for killing a Union soldier. The closer to the mason dixon line the less points, the further north the more. See we make a farking game of killing!

Dude, we have agriculture. New Jersey is the Garden State for God's sakes........Just had a hoagie for lunch with Jersey tomatoes in it. Dude, most of Pennsylvania is more hicky than where you live. Really. They have deer hunting holidays. Besides we eat pasta and pizza up here. We don't need no stinking vegetables, man. Need tobacco though, so you got us there. The English kind just ain't the same.
And what major shift happened just after the Civil War? The industrial revolution......the height of Northeastern power. The south would have been nothing during that time period.
Dude, EVERYBODY in our cities has guns........gernades........bombs..........gotta protect their corner. Seriously, everybody in northern cities has a gun.
Street level narcotics distribution shows ingenuity and a mind for business. And the guys on our corners are all aboot "blowing peoples' heads off." That's part of their lives. I'm not condoning it, I'm just saying.
Why am I always the spokesperson for the north? Do you other northern sissies have a voice or what?
Maybe you're right, maybe the south would win.......

The issue of states rights that did it. slavery was just the trigger.
The biggest two reasons:
1. Weapons--Southerns have them and know how to use them. There are tac schools all over the south plus many military types with training retire to the south so you already have a huge supply of people with excellent weaponry who know how to use them AND can train others in guerrilla warfare (IED's etc). In addition, many in the north who have these skills would probably not fight for the north so you are left with police and gangbangers. Police don't react well to being attacked since they are trained to be in the upper hand.
2. Industry--Alot of heavy industry has moved to the south and the bulk of the agriculture is there and the mid-west (which would probably side with the south). Infrastructure is a dated argument. The north produces little in terms of natural resources and the south has big reserves of oil and nuclear power. The fracking areas in the north would most likely be shut down or side with the south (those PA hillbillies don't take too kindly to liberals). Also, roads and such are horrible the north and excellent in the southern areas.
those are my best 2. All of this assumes the military stays out of it which they might.
PS--Cities are easy. just lay seige to them and make the gangbangers fight on your ground.
Oh hey, why don't you come up and spend a night on the streets of North Philadelphia. Tell them how bad southerners are and how you miss slavery. Tell them aboot your guns, and how crazy you are cause y'all hunt.
You do this and I will bow to you for the rest of time........
