    1. The Northeast didn't win the war on liberalism, they won on industry, which they no longer have.

    2. The Northeast didn't win the Civil war on poverty, The Northeast won the Civil War, on money and economics, TEXAS is now as big as wall street, and will surpass it very shortly.

    3. The Northeast didn't win the Civil war on political bullshit, the northeast won the civil war on Action, through repeated defeats and comebacks and sheer guts.

    4. The Northeast didn't win the civil war by banning guns, they won the civil war by having more guns and larger flank.

    5. The Northeast didn't win the civil war with Cowardism or Unfitness, they won the Civil by having more men in the military.

    6. The Northeast didn't win the Civil War by having a 60 % high school drop out rate, and 40 % illiteracy rate, they won the civil war, by having more educated people, educated by the standards of the time, which they certainly do not have today.

    7. The Northeast didn't win the civil war with laziness, but by having a low unemployment rate, or what would have been a low unemployment rate if such things were measured back then.

    Today the south would win the civil war because today the south is where the industry and the economy is, and the weapons, and the military personnel, and the literacy is at.

    Thank you.
    :)

    While much of what you posted is true, you ignore the large population of semi-literate irish immigrants that had flooded the Northeast and were used as cannon fodder.

    Also, to claim the south would win today is to assume that the war would be fought today. There is no slavery and no single issue to push for a seccession.

    As a lifelong southerner, let me say I am proud to be an American and will do whatever it takes to remain one.

    The Americans of today do not have a clue as to what freedom means and the Politician's know this, why else would you not be allowed to drink a 32 oz coke in the largest populated area in the USA.
    Freedom is the only thing that matters as the Civil War proved and we are giving them up under the foolish Idea that we the government know better.
    This evilness is not recognized buy The northerners and this will be there undoing.
    Why do you think even Florida (mostly full of northerner's) is going to be the 2Nd largest populated state soon. They want to get away from over bearing government rule.
    We left England to get away from Tyranny, people went west to avoid tyranny, also moved south for the same reason well guess what the super rich move to more appealing environment's every day.
    So when the government and stupid brainwashed people push to far there is nowhere left to go and then as in all countries that get out of control there will be civil war again in the USA.

    what the war was about has zip do with how or why it won.

    which has no bearing on how American life is today.

    The Midwest is conservative as well
    :)

    and not all of it is north of the mason Dixie line.

    it runs east to west, not north to south.

    And the blue states that exist in the Midwest are in no better condition than the ghetto northeast today.
