The Northeast was founded as settlements that thrived. People owned farms. Industry thrived. Public education was excellent. The South was founded by slaveowners, and it would stay that way. Now the roles have reversed. Now the South is where people can own farms and businesses are thriving. The Northeast has become a cesspool of corruption. What happened?

Your perceptions =/= objective facts

1) North had slaves, but their economy was not always dependant on it, so they could get rid of it and it would be fine.
2) Slaves in the north were mostly for domestic roles
3) the north DID have farms....then the tech boom happened (cotton-gin for instance) and industry starts to take over (factories, especially with the formation of the printing press in america)
4) south becomes more radical ... "Cotton-king" argument formulated
5) Even more radical "positive good" argument supporting slavery is formulated...
6) South refuses to change it's ways, unlike that of the North. Formulation of underground railroad comes, escapes and rebellions in the south forms.
and then the civil war happens

Pretty much how that comes about. South still farm land today, while the north has industrialized.

This is subtracting from major cities with huge influxes of growth (Austin TX for example) which industrialized as well because they simply had to.
Thank you for voting!

No offense, but you're weird. "Farmland?" Where the hell do you get your good food from? And McDonald's doesn't count as food since it's dog s--- that came out of the sh-- stain. lol
