    Oh, I get it...since I point out the historical facts that 1) Not all blacks living in the South were slaves and 2) There were blacks who voluntarily served in the Confederate Army and Navy, I'm somehow defending slavery?

    Really?!?

    I guess I shouldn't be too surprised by that argument.

    Many "sex slaves" also voluntarily entered into agreements. Once again, the rightwing demonstrates that it doesn't understand what slavery is

    if it's voluntary...it's not slavery. sometimes it really is that simple.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    But, indentured servants were released from their contract, after the agreed upon period of time. Now, weren't they??

    they can leave...at the end of their voluntary contract. I can't leave the military until the end of my contract....is that slavery?

    Of course you're going to make that accusation.

    Demonization of their opponent is the only thing the Libbos really have going for them, in any given debate.

    where did child sex-slavery come from? right...you have no argument so you bring in red-herrings and strawmen. typical. quite the agressive and intelligent debate you've got going there.
