I go with a previous poster who said Afghanistan and Iraq. The feds give them much more of our tax dollars than any of the other 50 states and yet they are still unamerican.

It's kind of ironic but I would say now-a-days the Northeast is the least American while the South is the most (its un-American not to support your government and President)

I didn't realize that we no longer have the right to disagree with our government. I guess all that stuff I learned in Civics class about our Constitutionally-protected Rights was incorrect.

I think it's most un-American not to criticize our government.

Kowtowing to authority and sacrificing our rights in the name of security is un-American.

The south is the most American because it supports government and president while they **** it up?!!!!!! Following blindly to government is the most unAmerican thing. I would however say that the south has the most American flag stickers and flag flying, but that certainly isn't American or patriotic no matter how much they think it is. This false sense of patriotism is just as unAmerican.

I dont' think there is any other state where a sizable part of the population wants to leave the USA. That is pretty un-American in my book.
Haven't read the whole thread so apologies if this had been mentioned already. Vermont has a pretty sizable population that would like to secede - they have a political party that received a pretty substantial portion of the vote in recent elections.

I think the reason why many people in the South are patriotic is for their identity to be a part of the United States, and to be accepted as such, because many other regions of the United States treat the Southern states as if they are foreign, especially by states such as California, New York, Illinois, etc., ones that are considered very American. For one thing the Southern states are unique and have their own culture, and in some cases their own language. A lot of their dialects are different from standard American English, and may create a language barrier between them and people from Northeast, Midwest, and West Coast states. Another thing is the time in history when the South wanted to secede from the Union during the Civil War.

I was expecting more people to say Louisiana, with all the French culture.
They are the only state I know of with Parishes instead of counties too!
