Are the Southern Border States (ie. those on the Southern US border with Mexico) turning into America's Gaza?

Certainly being used by Anti-American groups claiming historical right to the land.
Major crossing point for terrorists and criminals.
Now being given to illegal immigrants by court judgment.

ETA: Sorry for the missing word here. I intended the Mexico bordering Southern States. Not a North-South thing. Very bad title mess on my part given the Civil War vs War of Northern Aggression debates that occur. I intended a policy comparison discussion on two historic territorial claims disputes that are going on, but brain farted it into this mess.

I didn't intend this to be the train wreck/idiotic post (by me) that it has become. 3 frigging advanced degrees and I can't post something on this site without ramming my head up my behind.

If you mean that they are populated by backwards people who can't get over the fact that they lost a war a long time ago, then yes, the southern states are Americas Gaza Strip.

Gaza Strip=Gadsen Purchase?

At least the US/Mexico issue isn't fueled by religious hatred. That's the biggest difference.

No, just Texas.

Yeah, the same backwards people who make up the majority of the US Military today, and who have the most voting power for the Republican party.

Soooo.... what you are saying is the King of Sweden is using his penis as a radio transmitter to send anti-Semitic lesbian meatloaf recipes to Soupy Sales and Marvin Hamlish?

I'm not even a southerner by birth and I think it's stupid. Some people really need to leave their home town and travel some. Nothing backwards about the south, just not as progressive as the north which is a good thing.

Hm. The only parallel I can see is La Raza and the PA.

yes we are backward, if by backward you mean conservative. "Backward" being a favorite label thrown out by limp wristed liberals.

I am guessing it was a tongue in check comment seeing that it was accompanied by the smiling lucifer.

I agree...but it's like watching a train wreck...

I think you meant south western states.
Link Posted: 8/19/2005 12:57:37 PM EDT
Gentlemen (and Ladies), I ASSURE you it was NOT my intention to mistitle this as some anti-Southern thing. My mistake in saying Southern States, instead of Southern border states, has clearly made this a dumbass thread. Again, my error. My intention was to discuss increasing comparisons between the Gaza pull out and the increasing impact on the border states of illegal immigration and groups like La Raza, that claim it is really Mexican territory.

I am not a troll and was not at any point intending for my post to be taken as anti-"Southern".

If I have written anything here in my hasty retraction/correction/mess that is likewise stupid, please let it roll off and chalk it up to the end of a bad week.

Scrum,

The question you intended to pose was pretty apparent to me, and I agree with your premise to some extent. Israel's agreement to give land for peace will embolden others to work the same deal. After seeing the changes that have taken place along the Mexican border of Texas in just the last 30 years, it's not hard to imagine this happening here in the future. Many of these areas are already almost unrecognizable as being in the USA.
