    Re: Confederate Flag

    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%.

    Not quite. I voted against abolishing it because I don't believe in restricting offensive speech. I don't think it should be flown or displayed, but neither do I think that the government should prevent it.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    Lot's / most people do not want the flag "abolished. " The poll was poorly worded. That's why I didn't vote.

    Most of us have no problem with the flag being worn or flown by individuals.

    A lot of those same people do not want to see it waving at capitals, and otherwise endorsed by the state.



    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%.
    Your numbers are off -- it was more than 20%, and the time period you refer included the early 1500's, well before the folks landed in Jamestown (with slaves)

    Second, after 1808, the international slave trade was abolished. Then we just bred our millions of slaves here.

    Third: We were one of the only countries in the world to have to have fought a bloody war killing hundreds of thousands of our citizens to abolish it. Such a pity, and a horrible indictment on us.

    Re: Confederate Flag

    I voted wrong. I don't want it abolished. I want it flown appropriately.

    Like I said earlier on it should always be possible, even encouraged, for individuals to display this flag on their private property. I, for on, want to know who the racist morons are and where they live.

    Who said "hugs"? Is the mere presence of the Northern Virginia battle flag all the justification needed for acts of violence being done to the person who dare possess it?

    Re: Confederate Flag

    Why is this even still a topic? I wonder what other news stories are not being reported right now?
