All are right, and all somewhat wrong, I think. America's Civil War, the bloodiest in its history, was about change...changing the American dream. Two visions of the future and who would control it...the North or the South. There was no reconciliation about this except by violence. And once that violence was resolved to the satisfaction of both parties (acknowledging who won, and who lost), most Americans put that fight aside and reconciled to the victorious North's right, by arms, to decide what the United States would become in the 20th century.

Both sides believed they were right, and good arguments can be made that they were...but only one could prevail, and not by talking more about it.

Since then, we have mostly been able to continue with the vision that is America without resorting to such drastic violence, but this course is not guaranteed to go this way forever.

My advice: study the Civil War as to what is worth tearing your people apart over, and what is not. What the price of victory is, and the price of defeat, before thinking about resolving your differences by other than non-violent persuasion.

Okay...back to my sex novel...

Sweetbutt:

I only have a moment so I will respond more fully to your last posts. But I checked out americancivilwar website that you cited, and I did a search for "causes of the civil war," and it led me to a paragraph that offered very good bibliography or reading suggestions for anyone who wants to learn about this more fully.

PerfectMatch, Sweetbutt, Lucky: Please note what the final sentence of the paragraph about the causes of the Civil War says (in the source cited by Sweetbutt):

"Anyone who still believes that slavery was not central to the coming of the Civil War should study Charles B. Dew's tightly-focused monograph Apostles of Disunion: Southern Secession Commissioners and the Causes of the Civil War (Charlottesville: University Press of Virginia, 2001). A very readable and detailed account of the Sumter crisis is Maury Klein, Days of Defiance: Sumter, Secession, and the Coming of the Civil War (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1997)."

The site also recommends David Potter's "The Impending Crisis."

PerfectMatch:

" I just copied it so you couldn't delete it. Everyone should get a chance to see how you 'intellectuals' act when your [sic] getting your crushed."

your = possessive you're = abbreviation for you are

p.s. So you want to crush my ass? What would Freud say about that?

Nothing persuades me more about your incompetence to read and understand history in a complex, sophisticated way than your delusion that I am getting crushed in the argument over the Civil War--or any issue we've debated--by you.

So you want go to do some more plagiarizing. Do you really believe that you have a "complete understanding" of the Civil War right now? Are you willing to be quizzed on this knowledge?

Besides what does someone from CA care about slavery and the Civil War? That was a long time ago, something that never should have happened or should never been allowed on U.S. soil. But what about indentured servants? they were slaves as well. Also what is the liberal view about where the slaves were acquired? The U.S. did not go to South America and Africa and capture them, they were captured by their own people and sold for trinkets and beads.

Form americancivilwar dot com There were many reasons for a Civil War to happen in America, and political issues and disagreements began soon after the American Revolution ended in 1782. Between the years 1800 and 1860, arguments between the North and South grew more intense. One of the main quarrels was about taxes paid on goods brought into this country from foreign countries. This tax was called a tariff. Southerners felt these tariffs were unfair and aimed toward them because they imported a wider variety of goods than most Northern people. Taxes were also placed on many Southern goods that were shipped to foreign countries, an expense that was not always applied to Northern goods of equal value. An awkward economic structure allowed states and private transportation companies to do this, which also affected Southern banks that found themselves paying higher interest rates on loans made with banks in the North. The situation grew worse after several "panics", including one in 1857 that affected more Northern banks than Southern. Southern financiers found themselves burdened with high payments just to save Northern banks that had suffered financial losses through poor investment. In the years before the Civil War the political power in the Federal government, centered in Washington, D.C., was changing. Northern and mid-western states were becoming more and more powerful as the populations increased. Southern states lost political power because the population did not increase as rapidly. As one portion of the nation grew larger than another, people began to talk of the nation as sections. This was called sectionalism. Just as the original thirteen colonies fought for their independence almost 100 years earlier, the Southern states felt a growing need for freedom from the central Federal authority in Washington. Southerners believed that state laws carried more weight than Federal laws, and they should abide by the state regulations first. This issue was called State's Rights and became a very warm topic in congress

The Creeping Socialism of Barack Obama...world press

Barack Obama is a powerful, eloquent, talented orator and he proved that today when, in front of the old state capital building in Springfield, IL, he announced his candidacy for president.

If you watched the speech or if you see it replayed you’ll note that he not only spoke eloquently, he spoke extemporaneously. You’ll also notice as you listen to his speech or read the transcript that he did not enter this race calling his opponents names, nor did he enter the race trumpeting the superiority of his Democratic Party over the Republican Party; he entered the race by rallying the crowd around the concept of a failing America that can, under his leadership, be made great again.

It is his chosen path for greatness that concerns me.

Ignoring, for the purpose of this post, Obama’s stance on the “War against terrorism” (and, specifically, his confused call for our immediate withdrawal from Iraq as the definitive answer to successfully fighting terrorism); Barack Obama has two especially dangeous ideas that relate to our day-to-day American life; ideas that tell all you need to know about Barack Obama.

Obama feels that stronger labor unions are essential to returning America to greatness.

Obama is so strongly pro-union that his call for stronger labor unions was one of the first important points he made in his speech. What he did not say, or even conceive of saying, is that unions have traditionally taken the role of adversary to American business and in that adversarial role they have hurt business and have done immeasurable damage to the American worker.

Labor unions have done many things that most Americans perceive as ‘good things’:they’ve forced increased wages, they’ve forced improved benefits and they have forced improved working conditions but while doing that they drove many companies to the brink of bankruptcy, have closed the doors of many more businesses and unwittingly gave birth to the concept of outsourcing, causing millions of American jobs to be lost to foreign countries.

When labor unions start being a force for positive change for both parties, for both the worker and the company, they will begin to be a force for good, but that is not likely to happen until our economy is so disastrously crippled that the workers themselves rebel against and disband the unions that created the disaster. (This is, in fact, already happening and that is why labor unions will, no doubt, pour money into Obama’s warchest; to regain the power that many American workers are now denying them.)

Obama feels that Universal Health Care is the answer to America’s health care problem.

He used the term “Universal Health Care” only once but the crowd heard it and the world heard it; and those around the world who now live under a system of universal healthcare are, no doubt, shaking their heads at our flirtation with the idea. Universal health care in Canada, for example, has those who can afford it flocking across the border on a daily basis to receive their health care in the United States. Why? Because under Universal Health Care they receive medical care that they consider substandard.
