High taxes = high services. I'll take the high taxes of the North, and get back good schools, low college tuition, great roads, good police forces, a state healthcare system, a social safety net and other progressive programs. In the South, you pay little and get little in return. You get what you pay for.

Well kazoo, if you truly believe some government bureacrat can manage your money than you can then how bout you donate your whole paycheck to government. Also, Ive been up North as Ive said and I dont see what high taxes have gotten yall but bankrupt governments. And you brag about the public school systems, lol, apparently you aint aware of how the U.S. ranks in the education of our children compared to other nations. Yeah, them high taxes are really working for Michigan, New York, and Cali lmao

Just think how good the services would be if you gave ALL of your paycheck. You wouldn't have to worry about a thing! Especially if everyone's paychecks were taken and divided up equally among the population. Oh wait a second! We could just pay everyone equally no matter what their job was! Oh wait just another second! The government could control everything so that even all pay rates were the same! Sounds awesome to me. That way, I can be a video store clerk with no necessary education or job stress, and have exactly the same pay and benefits as my local neuro-surgeon who has to work his ass off, and go through 20 years of training and education. Where is it again that I sign up for that?

By the way, we have better roads than you.

First, progressive and social programs don't equal communism. It is not a bad thing to have taxes that pay for what they say they would. Liberal doesn't equal anti-american. Southern doesn't equal redneck,project poor educated. This thread is just filled with generalizations and stereotypes it's starting not to be funny. I am a Southerner, black male, educated, progressive, and I'm not a communist. I'm starting to see I may not fit in anywhere.

I think it probably began when the TVA gave the south their first taste of electricity in the late 80s.

Usually true except for when the government is involved.

Haha. How original. All your stereotypical insults dont change that fact that millions have fled the rotted North in exchange for the South. That speaks for itself.
