So, you think you are responsible for the weather?

Still don't know what you're talking about. I didn't say anything about people voting or not voting. Note my repeated use of "apparently."

southerners don't have the same politics, northerners don't all have the same politics.

Many of the people moving to the south from the north and other 'blue states' are people seeking lower property taxes.

I never encountered many "Yankees" until our most recent relocation. Now I'm seeing more how they view people and matters. I'm not sure I sense a "hate" for southerners, but there is a difference in attitude and culture that results in a disparity between people in the two regions. From a southern perspective, they often seem cold and withdrawn, and a bit snooty and putting themselves above others. I guess they see southerners as too warm and outgoing, and uncouth and undisciplined.

I'm confused. I was being sarcastic which is why I kept saying "apparently." What exactly is your point?

According to E.B. White:

To foreigners, a Yankee is an American.
To Americans, a Yankee is a Northerner.
To Northerners, a Yankee is an Easterner.
To Easterners, a Yankee is a New Englander.
To New Englanders, a Yankee is a Vermonter.
And in Vermont, a Yankee is somebody who eats pie for breakfast.

The term Yankee these days in New England has bad connotations as many associate it with the Bronx.

I think to New Englanders a Yankee is a baseball player or a pot roast.
