    No, most southerners were loyal Unionists. It's the Confederates and their modern day idiot defenders who are traitors, evil white supremacist scum.

    They're certainly not rebels. I'll reserve that glorious label for men who deserve it, like Douglass and MLK.

    And yet again, in your hubris, you assume that thought escaped the members of the US SUpreme Court? Its amazing how the world managed to get this far without lewrockwell.com to provide all these talking points.

    Most southerners and Texans have never favored secession. Nothing you say can change that.

    And you haven't done a single thing in this thread but convince everyone you're an ignorant racist.

    Nothing you say can change that...
    No one said the Constitution couldn't be changed. But the North didn't choose that route. They chose to change the situation through war. And then change the Constitution.

    Still makes us not the traitor. Makes them the traitor.

    It must be really difficult going through life with that sort of outlook about ones fellow man. You have my sympathies and my pity.

    I have found people to be of all sorts of qualities - fortunately most of them positive and decent.

    In all seriousness, yes you do. Ron Paul and the other idiot Tea Party types have prolonged this recession by sabotaging one remedy after another, all in the name of ideological purity.

    And all those threats to murder the president or start an armed revolution came from the Tea Party/Libertarians.

    Your party also should answer for the many white supremacists you have among you.

    3. I agree with ending slavery but I disagree with how it was done.
    Do you also defend the small elites within those states that hijacked the will of the majority in those same states?

    I answered that question not long ago. Why don't you stop spamming and start reading?
