My impression of the people in the eastern United States is not the most flattering. They come across as pushy, impatient, arrogant, secular, and materialistic. They are influential, no doubt, yet I find them divisive. Often times, I wish they would take a generous, open look across America and consider what they are doing to our country. As it is, they seem to be doing all they can to pull our land in a direction most of us don't want to go.
As a result of these impressions, I have yet to visit a city out east. The appeal of New York, Boston, Baltimore, or Philadelphia has never been that great to me. I am sure there is a lot to do there but I don't want to be around the noisy, busy, crush of people. Being on the streets of mean is not where I want to be.
