    But, how do you save anyone from a life of crap when all they understand is crap?

    You start by not making sectionalist attacks that, in the mind of many listeners, will prove David Barton right.

    You can't convince people by insulting them, and pretending that you're better.

    I could make a similar argument about NYC's gun laws being "Crap." I could argue that public transit in Buffalo NY is crap. I could argue that yankee thought is crap.

    I could write another diary that was equally correct criticizing the failures of the north and California, and referring to those places, their ideas, and their people, as "Crap."

    What you've written here is both ignorant and unhelpful, even if it's based on truth.

    Republicans would love to find a diary like this, hold it up for the people they're lying to and say:

    "See! All the East Coast liberals are effite assholes who hate you, hate what you think, what you wear, and what you eat, and they wan't to rule you.

    "But we won't let them."

    It's statements like yours that make it harder to fight for the democratic party in the south.
