    Ok, but then you are the one that accused me of supporting owning slaves. I can quote it if you want or you could just be honest for once.

    So the slave owners could set up a slave baby factory and make money directly?

    That is what you said to me in no short terms when you said the slave owners would cheer me on.
    Do you understand the difference in what you just wrote?

    Here is a clue: go to my statement in 276 and reproduce the words where I said you supported slavery.

    Go for it.

    Let my exact words speak for themselves since it is so clear to you and Thrilla.

    Haymarket gets confused on rights regularly. He doesn't seem to realize that no matter what voting is a privilege that only exists because of governments existence.

    Do you have trouble reading what the US Constitution actually says?

    I expect that you understand when you say to me that the slave owners would be cheering me on that means I would support their claims of slaves. Why else would they be cheering me on? Because I support property?

    Does your copy of the Constitution contain Amendments which specifically use the term RIGHT TO VOTE or any other variation of that term RIGHT TO VOTE?

    Do you have trouble figuring out where government comes from?

    If the government is the collective organization of the people and was created by the people nothing that goes with it is a right. It's a bit obvious.
