    the ones that values the needs of the many over the needs of the individual would make the most sense.

    Nice conflation there kid. If you want to be respected while debating a subject, don't make silly mistakes. Tenants in place of tenets, tow the line instead of toe the line, reign when you mean rein or the reverse, are the most common errors that I see as I read, not only here and other online sites but also in the print media and books.

    if you want to be respected, debate the subject, and don't waste our time on obvious and simple grammar and spelling errors as you just did. nobody is impressed you caught a minor mistake that caused no confusion to those in the thread.

    You know what he meant. If you disagree with what he said, state your argument, or state nothing at all if you wish to be respected yourself.

    I have been debating the subject but I find it difficult to give any credence to the writing of those who are unable to use proper English to justify their position.

    Ooops - I almost wrote something that might have been construed as a personal attack, nevermind.

    Whaaa...? (incredulity) In those regions of the Confederacy where slave labour was the dominant force, the majority of the population was often of African origin and were slaves. Not all of the South was like that, much of the South consisted of subsidence farming but in the coastal counties of South Carolina, parts of Mississippi and Louisiana along the Mississippi River where cotton was grown, there were large areas where there were many more African slaves than European whites. A tiny percentage of the Southern population benefited from slavery which would kinda overthrow the premise stated by ARealConservative.

    So based on what you've written here so far, what makes anything you say credible? Outside of your obvious misuse of the word conflation, you've simply come here to attack other posters instead of debating the topic at hand.
