You do not know if Governor has a particular motive. So what is your problem with what I stated exactly? I only made use of both terms not just one and I did not pretend to read minds or have privileged information directly from the Governor.

    Yeah, back to the drawing board with that one, Pete.
    Carter won the southern vote because he was a southerner.

    JFK won the southern vote because LBJ was a southerner.

    Reagan won the southern vote because GHWBush was a southerner.

    Clinton won the southern vote because he was a southerner.


    The south votes for southerners and up until Obama won in 2008 the presidency could not be won without the southern vote. When the south realized they no longer held that advantage over the country....they went ballistic. Shout downs at town halls, tea parties, fear mongering....you name it.

    The South doesn't take defeat lightly.

    Since some people think the rainbow flag stands for perversion,
    and some people think the rebel battle flag stands for racism,
    why don't we just say, to each her/his own?

    Sorry, I'm not in the mood to be an English comprehension teacher - if you don't understand the language, don't engage people you don't understand. Secondly, I know of Terry McAuliffe quite well and the Clinton lackie does nothing that isn't political. It would surprise no one if he did it specifically to protect Hillary Clinton and her chances in Virginia. If the flag remains in a State with a Democrat Governor, she loses that wedge issue.

    Now, it's been a delight, but I'm done - have a good day.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Read the article here: http://news.yahoo.com/virginia-gover...152930901.html

    I predict that the same thing will happen in other states in the near future and that all states will stop mandating display of the Confederate flag.


    No one is going to stop anyone from personally displaying it, but the states will stop doing it.

    Wait and see.
    North Carolina's turkey of a governor who has his head up his butt did the same thing. NC has the Sons of Confederate Veterans plate but the Daughters of the Confederacy (of which I am a member) has never gotten one and probably won't now, DARN IT!

    That makes too much sense! I would love to not have to justify my decision to display the flag because its part of my heritage.

    The flag means what the people who made the flag say it means.

    Your heritage is slavery.

    That's ironic since Lincoln in reality didn't give a flip about freeing slaves. His emancipation proclamation only freed slaves in the South, not up north. Also Lincoln only considered blacks to be worth 6/10 of a white man. That and his plan to deport all blacks back to Africa which lucky for them he did not live to put into place.

    Well the South sure must've thought he did, especially after Lincoln gave his House Divided speech upon accepting the nomination for the abolitionist party that was formed to end slavery. How did you manage to miss that? In fact, South Carolina's declaration for secession called him the "abolitionist president" and quoted a line from his speech to make their cause: "I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. "

    The emancipation proclamation only freed slaves in the south.....where 78% of all slaves in America just happened to be. The proclamation did not effect the border states that chose to stay in the union. But then Lincoln probably didn't posses a wartime power to unilaterally abolish slavery in areas not at war with the USA.

    The irony is that Lincoln probably wouldn't have been able to end slavery without the south trying to secede.

    Also Lincoln only considered blacks to be worth 6/10 of a white man. That and his plan to deport all blacks back to Africa which lucky for them he did not live to put into place
    Right, Lincoln was a monster but the slave holders were honorable. Got it.

    Next you'll be telling me that blacks loved slavery so much that they started the war to keep it. lol
