    That is not how it works... you need to produce actual posts that show that she WAS referring to specifically to "slavery" and not to anything that could be construed as "nuanced".

    You are funny... the way you debate!

    SOME states, Mississippi for one, were all about it, but it was not an overall main issue until the yanks made it one.

    I don't know if I've ever run across anyone so willing to be identified as a white supremacist on a forum before. The honesty is almost refreshing but it's chilling to be reminded that there are quite a few of these anachronisms still around.

    I'd love to see your evidence for those states who weren't trying to preserve and extend slavery but just decided to go to war because the North made them do it. Golly it's fun to see what you'll come up with next.

    The way it works is if YOU claim I failed at something it is incumbent upon YOU to do the work and produce the exact posts with explanation as to why I failed.

    YOU have the responsibility and I have no responsibility to lift my little finger to help YOU.

    No wonder YOU think I debate funny as YOU have absolutely no concept of how it works.

    You get the theme there? Its about YOU and YOUR own ability to back up your pronouncements when you put on the referee shirt and shout EPIC FAIL . Its your responsibility - not mine.

    This is the usual rigthwing m.o.--make big claims and then claim it's up to others to prove them wrong. They don't have to put up any facts at all. Then, when someone does show what BS it all was, the wingers just continue to pump out the same BS time and time again.

    Have you even read the statements of secession? If you have, that statement is utterly false not to mention absurd in the extreme as it is a blatant denial of the historical record produced by the seceding states themselves.

    No revision is necessary for that purpose.
