Free markets and competition create new opportunities, innovation, change and ideas in economy, society and politics. The 2 sections are evolving at very different rates.

The north and west embrace the new concepts and interpretations and change is accelerating there. The hung their hat on the idea that Congress can regulate commerce and levy taxes because it was in their interest. In addition they want *national* standards and solutions applying to *all* states, rather than many local solutions (see the southern railroad gauge problem for example).

The south, leery of change, competition and especially new ideas, moves into the future at a glacial pace.

What is a source of ‘South Carolina on the average was paying over $500,000 per year more in tariffs that they got back from the Federal Government’?
