    So save yourself with the "not that many people" had slave arguments.

    It is weak, it is a red-herring and I will not respond to it, because it is not serious, not relevent and certainly not significant.
    So the answer is "no".....I do not know what I am talking about.

    I can certainly understand why you do not want to debate the issue, if I were you, I would not engage either.

    But what you've done here today is actually pretty remarkable -- you've united a number of people who usually disagree with other to the common cause of exposing how weak your debate skills are. That, alone, ought to tell you something, if you choose to learn from it. And wise people choose to learn from every occasion.
    I don't see anything remarkable in maintaing the wacky viewpoint that a)The South was a proud and noble, b) the South was really the victim, c) they were justifiably fighting for their right to keep their slave culture.
    Then you've indicated as to whether or not you're going to learn from this little episode. You're not. Could have been a growth moment, but you're not interested.

    This is why we must stand firm in Iraq and Afghanistan; the notion that two nations that have never had Democracy in their long histories can implement it with success in a few short years requires historical ignorance and willful denial.
    Sorry friend, and this is probably best in another thread entirely, but Lincoln was not a great leader, not IMHO.

    I know... I know... Irrelevant.

    Liberals don't need no stinking evidence.

    I wouldn't even call his debate skills weak. More like non existant. He follows the troll blueprint to a T.

    1. Make outragously idiotic or partisan (or both) statements with no supporting evidence.
    2. Refuse to answer any responses, usually including some sort of personal smear while refusing.
    3. When your opponents tire of getting no response and start mocking you openly, cry and play the victim.

    You can tell yourself whatever you want to make yourself feel better.

    If you want to believe the South was the victim, go ahead.

    If you want to believe Southern slave culture was proud and noble, go ahead.

    If you want to think the murder and bondage of an entire people was second to tariffs, go ahead.

    Other than a few other fringe posters writing in this thread, no one outside of it will take you seriously.

    Your post was content free, and certainly failed to address any of the real substantiated racism we have seen during this administration. . .

    Thats where the racism claims WITH EVIDENCE are, and that is what I posted.

    I never defended slave culture. You can keep trying to use the most outlandish vilifications you can muster, but the bottom line is that you can't hold your own in a debate and now you are just being lame. Sorry, but it's true, lamer.

    That all came out of your mouth, not ours. You know what a straw man is, right?
