    Agree with the Governor
    Disagree with the Governor
    Not sure
    It should be removed because most of the registered voters in that state want it removed. Not because some outside groups trying exploit a tragedy want it removed.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Lincoln knew it would lead to war, preparing Ft. Sumter for war...

    People want to continue perpetuating this lie that the confederacy existed to do anything other than preserve slavery and enforce racist ideals that had become taboo even by the 1800s. However, they can't really dispute history or the amount of primary evidence that shows this to be nothing more than whitewashing.
    Photos are indeed powerful. But you left some interesting ones out...

    Fairer to say Lincoln prepared for contingencies at Ft. Sumter and elsewhere.

    So are these men, across 150 years just pro-slavery racists?

    Or could it be that you are missing something? Like why they do what they do?

    I think thats a bit simplistic. Try to approach it like a historian would.

    If you were to remove the word 'Southerners' from your statement, and replace it with 'African Americans', you'd have an equally powerful argument.
