Probably time to note the bottom line on the poll that started this thread. Looks like a landslide win for the pro-Confederate Flag voters.
My guess is that not a single one of those voters is in favor of slavery; They just respect preservation of American history and like so many other Americans, are sick of the revisionists and sick of the endless Liberal hate and whining over all things American.
Also important to keep in mind that America was a very minor participant in the worldwide solve trade with only 5% of the twelve million slaves that were brought to the new world coming to the United States. Only 5%.
