If you can say that Alabama and Oregon or Mississippi and Masachussets have a lot in common then your a liar.

They are in the same country, watch the same sports and celebrate the same holidays.

That's not what s/he said. The point was that every country has cultural differences depending on the region. In some countries (i.e. Switzerland, Spain) people don't even speak the same language in different regions.

The north and south should be different countries.

There must be around 25 millions Americans of Irish descent if we consider that a good number of people who consider themselves Irish Americans are actually Scotch-Irish Americans.

There are 4.6 millions Irish people in Ireland so there are still six times more Irish ancestry in America than Ireland. Even the UK and Australia have more people of Irish descent than Ireland.

Don't kid yourself with the name United States of America. We're anything but "United" really. Even the revolutionary war with its take on individualism and gun rights is getting to becvome more questioned in certain parts of the country. Even with and increasing hispanic population the english lanugae is starting to fade. Some sections of the country may in some of our lifetimes speak spanish as the first official language.

It isn't a unified country, so stop lying and kidding yourselves. And some of the things that used to unite us such as language and religion (one nation under god) is starting to fade away in recent years.
What does disparate individualism have to do with not being united? The American culture, its values, and its beliefs on individual life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are fully imbedded in our shared federal supreme law of the land, the United States Constitution, which thousands if not millions have died for. So stop being disrespectful. These united States are more united, or integrated, than you may realize! Read the Constitution for Christ sakes and understand the implications of every law, clause, and right and responsibility it has for its citizens and government.

...And if you don't like the ideology of a federal constitutional republic, I can name a couple dozen countries that you can move to, so you can learn the hard way how sharing your ignorant opinion will get you beheaded. Be thankful!
