    Ahh more bigotry towards the south that is somehow acceptable behavior in the 21st century.

    "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. The opposition state that you have STILL yet to prove that secession is prohibited by the constitution.......

    How many times are you going to keep saying this????????

    No it is not treason, the county the flag belonged to dissolved after the civil war was won by the Union. If you would like to spin this slightly you could asks the question if you fly another country's flag in the U.S. is that treason? I think that when you fly flags the U.S. flag should be flying on a taller pole so it can be higher than all the others, if wasn't higher than the others than it still wouldn't be treason but a sign of disrespect.

    The OP is making a point on a specific situation not general flag flying. Flying the US flag in immediate post Revolutionary War is a comparable situation where as general flag flying is not. The OP specified this later in the thread. And at 82 pages I don't blame you for not going through the whole thing. I semi-withdrew when my last post was followed by about 10 new pages before I could get back the next day.

    Says the guy who probably had his jaw broken by a Southern Belle. Union soldiers were mongrels that raped the South. Hell the Union kept raping the South after Lincoln was killed. He was the best protection we had against the military reconstruction that has kept the South in a cycle of extreme poverty since.

The wording of the US Constitution simply DID NOT require a state to remain in the Union, nor did it prohibit a state from withdrawing from it.
    Do you have a primary source for this quote? You keep throwing it around but I can't find it.

    They aren't because the United States won. The CSA lost. That's the point.

    Experience? Oh you stud.
    I called you a hippie because your username is 99 Percenter, the things you post on this forum, and because I felt like it.
