No.1 Their is the Northeast; The Midwest; and the Pacific Northwest, The Pacific Northwest is not known as the North
The Midwest is comprised of 12 states NOT KENTUCKY DAMN!!!!! You seem to be so determined to include Kentucky as the north/Midwest it's sickening. The Ohio River definition you gave stating "The Ohio River seperates Kentucky and West Virginia from the rest of the Midwest" is purely ignorant. Any logical person would see that the Ohio River is the true diver between the North and South. Hell I don't know why you even want to be Midwestern for THEY DON'T EXCEPT US AS THEIR REGION unlike the South. HEll they don't even want to claim the SOuthern region of their state that touches Kentucky, because it's so much more Southern than Midwestern. Even back during the Civil War Lincoln feared that he would have to fight off Southern Il, IN, And OH because they had such a Southern bond with a Southern state Kentucky. Kentucky did not succeed from the Union in it's best interest after all it is boarding 3 Midwestern states. Kentucky surely would have been burned to ashes, Just look at how fast they took Tennessee.
If you have ever seen the PBS speacial "Do You Speak American" "Southern Addition" the narrator was sailing on a boat in the Ohio River to emphasize that the Southern accent not only ingulfs Kentucky but even extends across the River into Southern Indiana,Illinois, and Ohio.
So please do me and everyone else a favor open your eyes and relize that you are on the Southern side of the Mason Dixon Line (Kentucky) making you a Southerner.
No.2 The South is not only the most populated region in the Nation but is also the fastest growing region in the Nation, Hell the South is growing faster than the Midwest and Northeast combined and it comprises of 16 states Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Georiga, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, KENTUCKY, Virginia, Oklahoma, Arkansas, West Virgina, Maryland and Delaware THIS IS THE OFFICIAL DEFINTION
The People of the North are the friendliest of the British people albeit we do suffer from an extensive population of scumbags thanks to mass unemployment.
Despite generating the vast majority of Britains wealth from the industrial revolution to its decline in the 1900s the government has seen fit to rape and destroy the working man of the North.
The north holds the vast majority of the U.Ks natural beauties and one day with the aid of Scotland and Wales will invade the south and destroy every posh Tory cunt inhabiting the shithole known as the London
Clement: Oh I know lets skull fuck The North!
Regenald: OH WONDERFUL!!!
Fred Dibnah: The hell you will! come on William Wallace lets take London!
As we know the souther ponces would suffer heavy casualties at the hands of true Northern men
A Toronto resident might feel that Sudbury is within this region; while a Sudbarian would consider Thunder Bay to be more reasonable.
Some of the best accents in the world (manner of speaking) are all throughout the North, with the most famous being Boston Urban, New Joysey, NYC, Ohio Brogue, Chicago Urban, Midwestern nasal twang, and South Midwest "rural" nasal twang.
Every race in the world are in various parts of the North, especially NYC and Chicago. All ethnicities and nationalities reside within these giant cities, as these are cultural, cosmopolitan areas where they all meet. This is the region that won the Civil War, even though not all of these states existed at the time.
The North also has a much stronger economy, based on both manufacturing and "clean" industries (pharmaceuticals/software), insurance and banking companies, and a little bit of agriculture.
As animosity still remains from the American Civil War, a lot of Southerners despise Northerners, calling them "damyankees", and some in the southern Midwest they call "traitors", for being pro-Union and much less into the redneck culture. The North has always been a successful, prosperous region with diverse people, places, industries, and forms of entertainment. The North continues to thrive and grow today as well.
