The 11 Nations Of The United States

Zero Hedge

"In his fourth book, “American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures in North America,” award-winning author Colin Woodard identifies 11 distinct cultures that have historically divided the US."

"Woodard says that among these 11 nations, Yankeedom and the Deep South exert the most influence and are constantly competing with each other for the hearts and minds of the other nations.
“We are trapped in brinkmanship because there is not a lot of wiggle room between Yankee and Southern Culture,” Woodard says.

“Those two nations would never see eye to eye on anything besides an external threat.”

"Woodard also believes the nation is likely to become more polarized, even though America is becoming a more diverse place every day.
"He says this is because people are “self-sorting.”
“ 'People choose to move to places where they identify with  the values,”  Woodard says. “Red minorities go south and blue minorities go north to be in the majority. This is why blue states are getting bluer and red states are getting redder and the middle is getting smaller.' ”
I do not see that as happening in Texas, which is becoming more liberal, that is, blue (a color arrangement I cannot abide).
 So who chose those two colors anyway? Red has been the major color of communist flags and when attached to the State Department, we dared not have any clothing or accessories that were red. Where can you find Soviet flags and Che T-shirts being exhibited? At Democrat gatherings, the "blue" party!
