Oh, really? Dont be so naive. Send a bunch of Swastika flags to your local synagogue, and see how receptive they are. Why do you hide behind that bullshit statement?

Better yet, if its just a flag, go to your next rally and burn a US flag, or burn one near your city's capitol bldg....

Though the symbol (swaztika) had several meanings, as well as logo on many jerseys of sports teams and orginizations prior to the Nazis adopting it, its in very bad taste to sport that flag on the back of your truck.

Flying a rebel flag no more makes you a slavery proponent than flying an Italian flag makes you a Fascist dictator sympathizer.

It's a heritage thing. Good or bad, you are PROUD of where you came from. It's a simple as that.

A flag is a symbol. Only YOU can give it power.

Few northerners in 2013 have grounds to be self-righteous on behalf of northerners who fought in the civil war well over a century ago.

That, however, utterly fails to explain the grounds on which a southerner today would have to justify the actions of southerners who fought in that same war so long ago.

The one thing that northerns do that does burn my ass is their always taking the high road on slavery, when the north for the most part couldn't have care less about the plite of the slaves until near the end of the war and for the most part wanted to ship them back to Africa a little country called Liberia comes to mind.

The north was also more than happy to buy cheap sourthern cotton, much like we are more than willing to buy cheap good for overseas sweat shops, Speaking of sweat shops and slums, wasn't that some thing the north exceled at?

There were a number of things that led to the civil war. And we need to remember that the north and south where headed in two different directions long before ink was laid to the constitution as was the battle betwenn state rights and a large federal government.

I believe that the biggest cause of the war was the western expansion, mainly Missouri and Kansas and the freelanders fear that the rich plantation owners would buy up the land preventing the common northern "white" man from doing so.

Then there was the plans for the intercontinental railroad the fear that the south would gain power of the western terriorities and placing the begaining of the railroad in New Orleans.

BS...The civil war stated because Davis and his inner circle wanted to create an agrarian slavocratic empire stretching from Richmond to Tierra del Fuego, and he knew that could not happen while attached to the United States with a growing group of "radical republicans" and abolitionists. So like most demagogs he sold his semi literate poverty stricken mostly NON slave owning population on a fake bill of goods about "states rights" and 'northern aggression" THAT is why the civil war started

Big:

"c ongress past high taxes on cotton and tobacco for export.it needed cotton for the mills of the north.c & t brought more money form overseas mills and cumsumers.the north wanted to force the south to ship it produce north."

There ought to be no tax high enough to damage a slave trade. There ought to be no punishment grave enough for a slave owner. If the people of the south didn't want the kind of taxation you speak of, then they should have chosen to use the legal system and if they could not win in the legal system... Then they should have simply left the nation.

I have zero sympathy for the entire south, no union general killed enough confederates and slave owners.

"high taxes on southern produce was the main cause of the civil war.........BS"

You are correct BS, but South Carolina had no legal grounds to leave the Union because of taxes and tarrifs. They thought they had, and probably did have, an out with the Federal Gov't not upholding the Constitution.

"A geographical line has been drawn across the Union, and all the States north of that line have united in the election of a man to the high office of President of the United States, whose opinions and purposes .............blah, blah"

How does any of THAT break the COMPACT???????

Poor analysis.
