It's actually a bit of a testimony that you have enough honesty not to lie outright about it and that you're somewhat ashamed of what your answer is. So there's hope for you....slim to be sure but hope, nonetheless. BTW, you didn't learn how to say "there only one race, the human race" from granddaddy. That's a cop-out attempt to use politically correctness to sound tolerant.

    They fired on Fort Sumnter because federal troops refused to leave CSA lands. Its not like they just showed up and started blasting fools.... They gave them the opportunity to peacefully return to USA lands.

    Re: Confederate Flag

    Ummmm, isn't that considered treason? I'm pretty sure the definition of treason is explained in Article 111,section 3 of the U.S. Constitution. Just sayin'

    Not if they were a separate nation.

    As mentioned before, the right to secede was supported by every state in the nation, up until someone actually did it.

    Re: Confederate Flag

    NO, Because......


    “When the Nazis came to take the Communists, I was silent. After all, I was no Communist. When they took the Jews, I was silent. I am no Jew. When they arrested the Social Democrats, I was silent. I was no Social Democrat. When they came to take me, there was no one left to protest.”

    MARTIN NIEMÖLLER, a German U-boat captain and later pacifist pastor,

    I neither own, display or intend to display a "Confederate Flag" but I voted "No" because attempting to ban inanimate objects only causes more problems that it solves and further polarizes society.

    We don't need yet, another intrusive & restrictive law giving an already meddlesome & confiscatory big Government another way to extract money & harass even a small & mostly harmless group of people like Civil War re-enactors, for example.

    When you support the negation of freedoms for some "other" people, you contribute to a trend by which you will lose freedoms of your own.

    As I mentioned, there are many hobbyists who enjoy participating in historic re-enactment. As a blacksmith who designs & makes wrought iron gates, fireplace tools, table bases, fountains etc etc, I am occasionally asked to make many very curious reproduction Civil War artifacts for Historic re-enactors of both sides. I have yet to meet a racist & hate filled person who plays either side but have learned quite a bit in doing the research required.

    While have no interest in participating in that hobby either, I'm impressed with their knowledge of History, attention to detail & eagerness to aid in film productions, educate the general public, school children etc about life in that era.

    So, my vote has little to do with the Flag itself but more to do with an aversion to the surrendering of ANY freedom no matter how silly or insignificant it may seem.

    Someday, your own silly seeming freedom may disappear.

    Thanks

    It was not their property. South Carolina ceded all rights to Fort Sumter in 1836.
    All Rights.

    It was Federal property. Property belonging to the whole of the US.

    Not to mention all the other Forts, Custom Houses and Arsenals and other Federal property and buildings they seized and declared as their own all over the south. Property belonging to the whole of the US.

    You don't just get to steal Federal property and call it your own.
