I also see PA and NC similar in the local politics. Philly and Charlotte seem to fight with the state to get help (although since the new gov. in NC in 2008 I have seen some chyanges in this). I've heard PA is split between Philly, and the rest of the state. NC is mostly Eastern NC (which houses the political powerful seats), the Piedmont Crescent, and Western NC (the red-headed step-child.

The red-headed step-child? Uhh... you ever been here? Everyone wants to live here (I live in Asheville btw, and believe me, I meet people visiting here daily wanting to move here), so I'm not so sure we are the red-headed step-child.

I'm not sure Asheville has been mentioned yet, but that's a really awesome small city. Georgia has Savannah, South Carolina has Charleston, and North Carolina has Asheville. All are great cities.
I live here.

I'd prefer to live in NC, but PA is the more important state. I mean our whole country was born there wasn't it?

Default NC for me

I'm a mountain lover and while PA is beautiful, I need a little more than around 3,200 feet. Mt. Mitchell approaches 7,000 feet, with many more peaks above 5,000 and 6,000 feet. Plus NC has great beaches. To me, that's more important than what urban area is what!

You're taking what I'm saying out of context. And, yes I have been there, which is why I said what I said and this is a known fact in NC. Do your history and see where most of the wealth and the power in NC comes from. It comes from the East, due to tobacco and other cash crops. I know their are the Biltmores and other families, but most of the resources in NC goes to Eastern NC first. Example, name the medical and law school in Western NC? Now name them in Eastern NC. That's what I'm getting at. relax and stop being so defensive, I'm on your side dude.

Nah, our country was also born in the South. Not too far from NC, in fact, technically it was NC.

NC is getting too crowded with Ny'ers. It's becoming NY south. That said, I'm from NY lol. I'll be moving to PA within 2 years. The weather and atmosphere is just more to my liking than NC. I guess it's a personal thing.

I have friends in North Carolina who are concerned with it's rapid growth which can sometimes cause instability, especially in urban areas and cities.

I like NC a lot as a place to live. PA is more important.

I think that person is specifically referring to the signing of the Declaration of Independence, which officially gave birth to the USA.

But where exactly are you referring to in your statement???
