So what are demographics, if not a bunch of generalizations? And how are we pitting sides? I'm just trying to glean some useful information out of something that is inherently non-factual (politics).

There have been legitimate questions on this board about the politics of NC and the south in general, and this is an attempt to reconcile and understand the general differences in political points of view, based on geography.

I have no interest in arguing current politics. One's personal political views are largely irrelevant to this discussion.

Well, I'm a Northerner and I agree with your post.
Based on reading the previous posts, maybe the South is where I belong.

Well, At this point your begging the local gov. for more regulations. Welcome

local zoning meetings and make your voice heard. ( almost nobody goes to these things, myself included, except developers and they are not concerned
with you paying higher taxes)
Amen! That is what happened to Long Island. I guess we did not believe our local government would sell us out, but they certainly did.
