I've heard rednecks and other people with southern accents here in the US say that the south will rise again. In what way would you interpret this? Are they saying that they would like life to go back to the way it was before slavery ended? Are they just trying to be proud of their 'not so glorious' heritage? Or are they just stupid hicks who like to go hunting and mudding, but spell the words huntin and muddin?

they want to be a sperate country but its more of a crass 'honoring' of heritage. yeah its stupid, but lots of people 'honor' their 'heritage' in stupid ways, hence the plywood pyramid the nuwabian child molesting fucktards built around here

If they did create a separate 'country' in the future, do you think inbreeding would run rampant? Huntin' might replace baseball as their national past time.

"The South will rise again" generally refers to the fact that during the days of slavery the southern economy was enormously successful because they grew all the cash crops and the labor was free. The south grew the crops, the north had the factories to process them into products.

When slavery ended all of a sudden there was an enormous downturn in the southern economy because not only did they no longer have free labor but many poor blacks who would otherwise have had no choice but to work the farms anyway for almost no money left for northern cities because of plentiful factory jobs.

Hence, the south "fell" from being flush with money and integral to the american economy to being a bunch of hicks who are largely a joke up north.
