    I'm not advocating one side over the other just giving my analysis of why I think the south would win today under certain conditions. PJB you are 100% right about the northern industry late in the civil war. Lee recognized this as well and knew defeat was inevitable.

    New York is one of the wealthiest cities on earth. They can get supplies if they lack them. That's just one example. There's plenty of money and resource availibility in the north.

    The north has PLENTY of farms.

    The mid-west power players are all from Liberal cities. They run the show.

    Even the Jersey guys who fly confederate flags still have a soft spot for NJ. It's home......No one wants to see their homleand attacked.

    Just because you can hunt and hang out in the woods doesn't make you tough. ANYONE can especially if they are forced to. It's friggin human nature.

    Why does everyone assume every non-northern state loves the south ??? People from North Dakota don't fawn over Alabama. And their getting a taste of big time oil money. Their tastes might swing to the Yankee-finer-things-in-life

    Most southerners can't read so I don't know what they are learning at tactical schools. Yeah, what are you talking aboot the same clowns who made bunkers for DECEMBER 21, 2012 ??? Ha, yeah better watch out for those guys!!

    Roads ? They have dirt roads down there.

    Aww man, here we went again. PUMP, I'm sending a few people down there to investigate your Jersey loyality......

    And SUP, don't get angry, this isn't serious, at least I'm not being serious. I mean, what I'm saying is the truth but I'm doing it in a jovial way........

    And that's it. Someone else stand up for the north for once........Jeez.........

    This thread is out of hand. You guys really want to start your own country? Go ahead and see what happens. Abandon all treaties, trade agreements, military protection, rule of law, court system, legislative system, etc. Might as well just go all in and join the United States of Mexico. Have fun living in a lawless country! It might have worked when we had a few million people spread across millions of acres but good luck finding enough land to raise your own crops and firewood to warm your home when several million people have to do the same thing!

    Grow up, you're not going to solve all of your problems by seceding (yes, that is how you spell it) from the Union. There's just as many redneck Republicans driving trucks and shooting guns north of the Mason Dixon line as there is south of it.

    The class divide these days isn't about North vs. South, or black vs. white, it's rich vs. poor (i.e. - educated vs. uneducated). So stop harping on an issue that's 150 years old.

    D@mn it's been a tough day at work...

    Oh hey - just thought of this - as opposed to getting together in Deal, NJ for a forum reunion where we surf, drink, laugh, and hang on the beach, maybe we should get together for the first annual Swell Info Forum Civil War Reenactment where we can further the arguments of our great, great, great grandparents. I mean, cotton labor is still such a hot topic.

    I call I get to be General Sherman.

If the North wanted a fight I have no doubt that many yanks especially the gang bangers you speak of would say no way, not my fight, Ill keep slangin dope, but let ther be a call for the good ol boys to rise up and you would see a fleet of pickups coming up I95 armed to the ****ing teath and a point sheet for yank kills to boot! Question for you southern guys, think if that happend they would put a bag limit on us like during deer season? God that would suck. I'm ready though.

    Already have, dude. I lived in the Outer Banks, from 2002-2004. I spoke my mind everywhere I went. NEVER HAVE BEEN A BIT FRIGHTENED of ANYBODY DOWN THERE. NEVER. And I'm only 4'10'' 105 pounds. Wancheese dudes ain't nothing.

    I'm not internet bragging. There's no one down there that scares me the way people do up here.


    I used to bust on the South to my probation officer in Currituck County......yeah Currituck County not transplant Dare County. The real south.

    I don't know where you southerners get this idea from. NOBODY IN THIS COUNTRY IS AFRAID OF YOU GUYS. NOBODY. You guys have created this paradigm and it is COMPLETELY exclusive to y'all. You guys romanticize yourself like some Wild West cowboys.

    But you wouldn't get out of your car in North Philly. I know that for a fact.

    With the way things are going right now I think we're going to have to worry more about a East vs. West or what might turn into WW III more than another Civil War here at home. We might need to all band together one day. If we pull the trigger on Syria you can bet your ass things are going to escalate quickly. You guys ready to pick up arms and put your desk jobs and 401k's on the back burner? I doubt it...

    If the war comes to our doorstep, how many domesticated men / women are going to be willing to join the fight? This is the question we should all be asking, and if you look around, people are too wrapped in updating the Facebook page with what they ate for lunch and Twittering each other with their smart phones to care. I guess we'll find out soon enough won't we...

    Even if we did leave what makes you think we would not establish treaties with nations, trade agreements and everything else you mentioned. God you seem to forget that America broke away from England and everyone cited similar reason for not doing it. Would you have rather we stayed under English rule? I agree with PJB in that no one is really serious about breaking away and this is all just internet debate, but if you really think there are more republican rednecks with guns up north then you are crazy.

    Actually as funny as it seems (maybe I'm just angry after quiting toking two weeks ago) but over the last week I really have considered joining the Army ahead of an invasion plan. I actually feel like I want to know what it's like to shoot a human (enemy combatant not an innocent person). Odd?! Insane? Maybe.
