    We shouldn't honor traitors who broke free from the State to ensure that they could continue to engage in the most heinous institution in the country's history.

    Having a separate day for the Confederates is redundant. The holiday was founded after the Civil War to commemorate BOTH the Union and Confederate soldiers who died, though initially it was called Decoration Day.

    you said it was unconstitutional..however the constitution does not prohibited the states from seceding..

    the 10th amendment is very clear, if its not power of the federal government or prohibited to the states by the constitution then it is power of the states respectively and to the people.

    Amendment X

    The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

    and the people of those southern states exercised their right to secede.

    they were not traitors, they have no intention of over throwing the federal government, before the war began.

    treason according to the founders is aiding the enemy in time of war.

    Re: Should Confederate Memorial Day(s) exist?

    i think there should be such a day, but it should be celebrated differently from memorial day, something more befitting traitors and defenders of slavery. There should be parade every april 9 taking place on alabama's streets, with veterans dressed in union uniforms, commemorating the defeat of the confederacy, bayonets fixed in case any sore loser rebel scum attempt to disrupt the festivities.

    Also included in the parade will be 500 white descendants of slavers, wearing rags and chains. The parade will end at a field, preserved for this annual celebration, where everyone will get to watch the descendants pick cotton the entire day while slave descendants get to whip them at their leisure

    Anyone who tries to flee will be hung of course

    So EB...according to the Declaration of Independence, we are endowed by our Creator with “certain unalienable rights” including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    If that is the case, then it is not much of a stretch to argue that the right of secession is such a right. Would you personally consider this assumption to be true?

    to be clear..... "pursuit of happiness" has been translated into ..property

    if you are asking, do the people have a right to alter or abolish their government, ..then yes it is a right of the people to do that.

    i don't need the link, because there is nothing in the constitution prohibiting secession of the states.
