Forsyth County is a soulless wasteland of trailer parks oddly wedged in between cookie cutter subdivisions.

It has the poor white Appalachian folks combined with white flight refugees who fear public transportation. It all creates a very anti Obama culture.

It's rather sad one has to cross the Badlands to get into the rather pretty (albeit insanely Republican) North Georgia mountains.

North Georgia is gorgeous, but I couldn't live there because I would inevitably be forced to talk politics with the locals. It's weird that N Georgia is so much more Republican than other mountainous areas in Western North Carolina. Cross the state line and you go from Rabun County GA where Obama got 21% (his best in the region) to Jackson County NC where he got 48%.

I know! The intense conservatism of that area somewhat perplexes me.

wasn't there some type of neo nazi rally held there that got national attention? I'd guess it was about thirty years ago.

As of 2000, the county was less than 1% white, and the county seat only 2% as of 2 years ago. In a county adjacent to Fulton (Atlanta). Wow.

I think you might mean black? Grin
