The South won’t have to rise again…just remain standing, while the rest of America falls.
This quote has appeared time and time again on numerous Facebook pages and blogs of “True Southrons.” It appeared most recently at the echo chamber of fiction southern romance novel writer, Connie Chastain. Usually I just scoff at such statements, they being what they are. This morning however, I found myself thinking about this quote from a different perspective. Could the South remain standing, or will it be part of the problem that causes America to “fall?”
Two videos came across my YouTube channel this morning that highlighted some severe socio-economic problems the South currently faces, and got me thinking about those “True Southrons” that make the above argument.
I just want to say that I neither advocate nor condone the Secular Talk channel. I found the videos interesting when taken together with the quote above. The southeastern section of the country receives an unprecedented amount of federal welfare. The failures of the broken system that is national education are more prevalent in the South. These are just a couple of the problems. So could the South remain standing were America to fall? Personally, as someone who lives in Georgia where 25% of the population lives below the poverty line, I’m inclined to say no. But of course, I could be mistaken. Governor Deal, after all, says these are the Glory Days….
