Another BS book. Just look at the description of “Deep South” and “Left Coast” to quickly detect the heavy bias.
LOL...South Florida is an entity unto itself!
It is called the Conch republic or North cuba depending on who you talk to
I’ve lived in at least 5 of those, who can top that?
“Tidewater!” What a marvelous, evocative, and fresh-sounding name!
“Bilgewater” is more accurate.
Author Joel Garreau wrote of this in 1981 in The Nine Nations of North America. he had no real political ax to grind and his vision was not entirely without foundation. This, on the other hand seems decidedly flawed in that it elevates one type of culture above all. That which leads directly to Progressivism. One other thing, the auithor of this does not reference the fact that Black Urban culture spans the urban centers of this nation.
You DO know that if it wasn’t for a couple of Tennesseans (David Crockett and Samuel Houston) Texas would be North Mexico today.....
LOL That’s funny but I see that the Texan who made that thinks CO is north of WY.
Laugh it up.
Nothing really funny about history.
St Augustine Florida is the oldest continuously (European) populated city in the United States. And, as territory if Spain, it remained Spanish until 1763, just short of 200 years, roughly half of its existence.
So it's not unexpected that it might have a uniquely different population and culture.
>>Another BS book. Just look at the description of Deep South and Left Coast to quickly detect the heavy bias.
The bias is just over-the-top. Just pointless for mental masturbation for urban Leftists.
In the northeastern states - Yankeedom, New Netherland and the Midlands - just over four people died per 100,000 by assaults in 2010.It would be interesting to see the statistics they used to arrive at these two statements.
In the southern states - Deep South, Tidewater and Greater Appalachia - there was a rate of seven per 100,000.
There are so many differences between each state and even within the same state.
You know that if they split Alaska in Half, Texas would be the third largest state.
Greater Appalachia and darned grateful for it

Gonna have ta pry me outta here with a crowbar
I have worked for extended in and with heirs to all of them except El Norte.
Being Appalachian, and therefore “not quite white”, and growing up on the cultural frontier between the Hatfields and McCoys and the peaceful Ozzies and Harriets of the middle America/middle German/Mennonite tribe, I can attest to this guy’s accuracy.
Albion’s Seed is yet another work in this line. Both are spot on.
I have read Woodard’s book several times.
Read this article as well....
“Over the decades, Deep South has become strongly allied with Greater Appalachia and Tidewater, and more tenuously with the Far West. Their combined agendato slash taxes, regulations, social services, and federal powersis opposed by a Yankee-led bloc that includes New Netherland and the Left Coast. Other nations, especially the Midlands and El Norte, often hold the swing vote, whether in a presidential election or a congressional battle over health care reform.”
Bloomberg, for example, is a classic Dutch Poltroon.
He does also overlook the “transnation” urban black culture as noted by another Freeper comment in this thread.
AS for “New France”, I believe the author missed the correct line of delineation.
He has, as a border, Avoyelles Parish. Next to it is Rapides Parish where the regional V.A. hospital is located, since there hasn’t been one in New Orleans, since Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The telephone system at the Rapides Parish V.A.M.C., speaks in English, and Cajun French.
the left coast...touted as being the home to the entrepreneurial mindset is in fact heavily polluted by those mentally distorted by the elitist mindset.
This reminded me of the old “World According to Reagan” map.
That's quite true. But the first huge influx of Americans into the Republic of Texas came from the Deep South thru the "Gateway of Texas", Nacogdoches. My family came to Texas in 1839. Originally from South Carolina, they came here from Alabama.
Most of my paternal ancestors are buried in Nacogdoches County and I will be too...
I live in northeast Mexico (southeast Texas)! /s
I live in the deep south:
I wish I was in the land ob cotton old time daredum not forgotten, look away look away look away Dixieland, etc.
LOL...South Florida is an entity unto itself!
I was not aware of any Texas shortcomngs. ;)
I love St Augustine, but it is not exactly “South” Florida. It takes me five hours to get there from the “Deep” South.
I beg to differ. Tidewater, as it's been called for a very long time, is a beautiful place and is rich in history.
