We have to realize that we have become two different countries. We must secede from the South if we are to survive as a viable, thriving nation. Differences between the midwest and the two coasts can, I believe, be overcome with decent political discourse based on shared goals and long range interests. But, let's face it, the South is living in another century. I sincerely believe that the mentality and emotional IQs of most Southerners has more in common with Muslim extremists than with their fellow Americans.

Rob I sincerely disagree. What you see from Southern bloggers and Southern posters on blogs suggests a very diifferent and diverse picture than the one you suggest.

What we need are the science class grades from both h.s. and college of all those who voted against this bill - odds have it they didn't do to well.

So, normally I break regions like this:

Northeast: Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, and New England
South: Old Confederacy plus Missouri, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Florida
Between NE and South: Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, DC
Pacific West: CA, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii
Southwest: Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada
Mountain West: Montana, Idaho, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming
Midwest: North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio
Out There On Its Own: Alaska

This seems to match the cultural divides, roughly speaking. But with a four-region breakout, I really have no idea which region a lot of the states are being assigned to. Particularly the Mid-Atlantic states between the NE and the South, and the Mountain West and Southwest states. Also Alaska.
