I've never heard anyone say TN is in the deep south before (btw, it's not but that brought a smile just the same

No intention to hijack, but Tennessee is in fact in the deep south. It is the buckle on the bible belt.

I've lived in TN most of my life.  My dad and mom live here, my Grandma lives here, my grandpa died here, and I have about 25 other family members that live here.

East TN wanted to stay with the U.S. during the War Between the States (but the rest of the state prevented it).  The state was on of the last to leave the U.S. (and almost did not), and it was the first to join back with the U.S.  TN borders two states that never lefted the U.S.  

Unlike the (other?) Deep South states, most blacks were not messed with when blacks got the right to vote (thus, the high percentage of blacks that voted compared to tiny % in other states). Outside of West TN, TN is vastly white.  Cotton was only common in one part of TN, West TN.  The only two large cities in TN are very liberal and Nashville is an international city.  Most of the people that live in East TN are not even from there.

I am not sure why you mention the bible belt or how it relates to TN being in the Deep South.  CA (Southern CA used to be highly Christian), TX, and OK are in the bible belt but not in the Deep South.

Maybe I am wrong, but rural MS and southern GA are a very different world than TN (from what I have seen).

yestoamerika:
I believe history tells us that very few states (north or south) really wanted to be part of the US when the civil war came about. I think even Massachusetts was a bit sorry for starting the whole thing over their socialist issues of free trade. I don't think anybody was real proud of that war. It was so not needed.

Fushion is a really great reason why NH is the Free State.  Just got a note from Rep. Dave Scott, I'm the info guy for the NHLA.  Rep Scott is looking for native porc's to run as fushion candidates  here in the Dover district.  Believe we have a great chance to increase our reps in the state legislature this year.  Major problem now is finding the people, so many of the active folks here have full plates.

Glad to see a major effort is going on to locate and organize the native porc's.  Do believe if we can find them, and some agree to run, we can really show some gains.  The deadline for filing is June 2, so we really have our work cut out.

This is great news! Perhaps some of the people who are eligible to run would be willing to put some things on hold, or turn the tasks over to others who can not or will not run for office, in order to take advantage of this awesome opportunity. If we're being asked to run, then run we must!
