    The Confederate States formed because the United States was ignoring it's own constitution, namely, the seizure of private property without compensation.
    Yes, some of the private property happened to be slaves, but it was also land and other resources.

    Lincoln had the right idea, but he went about it very badly, resulting in the War of Secession.

    Democrats, of course, wanted to keep slavery. Not all of those fighting on the side of the Confederates cared about slavery. Most of them didn't. They didn't own slaves. Only the rich owned slaves.

    So what were all those soldiers fighting for?

    Their homes, and their families. They saw a threat to their way of life because of the property seizures and because the Union committed an act of war by continuing to occupy and resupply a fort in a foreign nation, and the Union saw no problem with just taking whatever they wanted.

    The nice, clean, 'history' about the War of Secession isn't so clean. Lincoln, though he had the right idea, wasn't so good in implementing it.

    The last thing Lincoln was, though, was racist. He saw that slavery is yet another form of socialism, the theft of a man's work.

    Lincoln was assassinated by slavers and criminals that were Democrats. John Wilkes Booth took the actual shot. All members of this particular conspiracy were captured fairly quickly and shot or hung.

    To be fair to Lincoln, Seven States had seceded BEFORE Lincoln even took office. Lincoln had made no secret that is aim was to bring about the end of slavery. A lot of people in the Confederacy were racists and bigots.

    Slavery was already waning. Fewer and fewer people owned slaves. It would've eventually died off completely (except for a few holdouts), but Lincoln wanted to end it NOW. His whole campaign was centered around the slave question.

    The Southern Generals were for emancipation. Lincoln..ehh. Read for yourself.

    Now Lee was all for reconstruction..

    That's when the Democrat Ku Klux Klan popped up to counter it.

    As every person should.

    One of my favorite books is Ernest K. Gann's "Fate is the Hunter". I've read it several times and have bet new First Officers to buy it and read it. If they don't like it, I'd buy it from them for their cost. No one ever asked me for money.

    Gann flew for American Airlines before WWII. As an airline pilot, and a little older, he and several other pilots weren't drafted but put on government contract flying for Lend Lease to Britain. They flew what was called the GIUK Gap; Greenland, Iceland, United Kingdom. Conditions were primitive by today's standards and, just to get their altimeter settings, one aircraft would fly low over the North Atlantic set his altimeter to sea level then climb back up while passing the setting to other aircraft in the flight...if there were some. Often they flew alone. Air Sea Rescue was nil. If they had a problem, they were dead.

    So what did they do against such daunting obstacles and risks of leaving this mortal coil? They manned up and pushed on instead acting like pussified cooks from Seattle.

    One thing I have increasingly noticed over the last 20 years is that historians can not generally be trusted to even attempt to tell the truth anymore, they are driving agenda just as the rest of the Failed Intelligentsia are, and in the service of that lies are obviously fine, because they do it constantly.

    One such lie is that the Civil War was all about slavery.

    Wars are about money. The south was making huge money off free labor and abusing that labor made them richer. You cannot divorce the war from the concept of people as property. Buying and selling people offended many Americans. The south was not going to give them up.
    Slavery is not as simple as you are pretending. There were religious and moral reasons to hate it. There were people offended by what the slavers were doing and there was no way to allow it to continue.

    Get a grip, dude. We're all gonna die sooner than we like, so take a break and enjoy it a little bit. My projected expiration date is around 2036-2040. Based on most models, my expectation is to say "Adios, motherfuckers" around 2031-2035. Smart people plan ahead, doncha know? LOL

    Have some fun. Enjoy life. Death will come soon enough so don't rush it.

    Bah, Every day is a blessing for me.

    No. There are not enough of them to do anything outside the cities. They can barely control 6 blocks of downtown (remember the failure of CHAZ?).

    What could I do to prove my reality, #10? What would be the minimum that would satisfy you?
    Stop supporting The Oligarchy. Start recognizing the Constitution of the United States. Start recognizing the constitutions of every State. Stop believing the Fake News.
    Stop trying to change history. Stop....who am I kidding? You won't stop. You will continue to support the Oligarchy, discard the Constitution, continue to quote Fake News, and continue to try to change history.

    Wow. You're shitting your pants in a country of 330 million Americans in fear of an enemy that "can barely control 6 blocks of downtown"? WTF, Sybil? Try taking some boner pills or spine stiffener, douchebag. Quit being a fucking coward.

    No shit on the .223, Sybil, but if you're going for a kill, bigger is better. It's not like you're humping 200 rounds through the jungles of Vietnam. If you're truly at home, go for the round that would stop a person with more effectiveness, not the pussy round being pushed on you by the Oligarchs.

    Stop being a fucking puppet, Sybil.
