Some people like state power, I guess. Mostly Christian conservatives who are afraid of REAL freedom.

I’m sorry to see this article has drawn out a few haters among the commenters.

Thanks for reminding me of one of the reasons I left your hate-filled country.

The South should have waited out the Lincoln years, in what most likely would have been a one-term administration. Lincoln was elected with nowhere near a majority of the popular vote and a more united Democrat Party could have prevailed in 1864. But, instead we had a not-so-Civil War and the end result was the setting of the stage for an overwhelmingly powerful federal government and the forever marginalization of the concept of “States Rights.” Without the Civil War, there would not have been a 14th Amendment to the Constitution, the sledgehammer with which the federal government has diminished the power of the States to where it is now only a fleeting reference in dusty history books. Unfortunately, for those of us who still believe in a country that follows a more moral path, the descent into hedonism seems to be inexorable. God help us.

Slave anger needs to be addressed- it is a social phenomenon that is hurting America and Americans. When they teach kids about slavery and show them things like “Roots” (which took away my black friends in 2nd grade when I went to school in Los Angeles with them) they also need to be taught that NO ONE IS DOING THAT TO YOU OR YOUR FAMILY TODAY.

We know who’s doing this. We have a plan for you and yours. This time there won’t be an allied army ready to cross the ocean to save your filthy hides. This time you don’t get away.
