    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Why don't you address my actual arguments instead of talking to your friends?

    What makes you think the southern tax money didn't pay for it?

    Because it doesn't belong to them anymore.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    No, it wasn't. Saying something is yours doesn't make it yours. The United States wasn't independent until it won. The Confederacy never won - it was never independent and consequently owned nothing.

    That's not even close to the most incorrect statement in DP history. I doubt it would even make the top 100 list this week.

    Perhaps you can back up your insult with a point by point analysis?

The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    Yes it was. If Cuba decides to end the lease of Guantanimo bay it is no longer U.S. territory. That is the most accurate analogy of the Fort Sumter issue, when the south said GTFO the fort was no longer within federal territory. I don't understand how people can't understand that. Or is it Won't?
