The Civil War was Not About Slavery…errr Right

Confederate States of America – Declaration of the Immediate Causes Which Induce and Justify the Secession of South Carolina from the Federal Union

We affirm that these ends for which this Government was instituted have been defeated, and the Government itself has been made destructive of them by the action of the non-slaveholding States. Those States have assume the right of deciding upon the propriety of our domestic institutions; and have denied the rights of property established in fifteen of the States and recognized by the Constitution; they have denounced as sinful the institution of slavery; they have permitted open establishment among them of societies, whose avowed object is to disturb the peace and to eloign the property of the citizens of other States. They have encouraged and assisted thousands of our slaves to leave their homes; and those who remain, have been incited by emissaries, books and pictures to servile insurrection.

For twenty-five years this agitation has been steadily increasing, until it has now secured to its aid the power of the common Government. Observing the forms of the Constitution, a sectional party has found within that Article establishing the Executive Department, the means of subverting the Constitution itself. 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 are hostile to slavery. He is to be entrusted with the administration of the common Government, because he has declared that that “Government cannot endure permanently half slave, half free,” and that the public mind must rest in the belief that slavery is in the course of ultimate extinction.

This sectional combination for the submersion of the Constitution, has been aided in some of the States by elevating to citizenship, persons who, by the supreme law of the land, are incapable of becoming citizens; and their votes have been used to inaugurate a new policy, hostile to the South, and destructive of its beliefs and safety.

And in some circles nothing has changed.


  1. there ya go again.. bringing up the RACE CARD.. you are right about the civil war though.. The slave stuff was just fluff.. Heck, slavery was always around.. still is. in one way or another.

    Greeks were the first SLAVES… do you see a Greek person asking for hand outs or favors..????

    If you look back at history, every ethnic culture has had some form of prejudice/discrimination.

    What gets my ire up is that the ‘BLACKS’ capitalize and sensationalize their COLOR to fit to their personal agendas!! Some forget that we are a diverse country!

  2. See all that “English Only” stuff and anti-immigrant stuff and tell me again about race cards and diversity.

    No the slave stuff was NOT fluff. Uou did not read the post.

  3. The cartoon says it all. But if you dare to mention the elephant in the room, you are “playing the race card.”

    “Conservatives”will tell you that the only racists in America today are liberals.

    And that pointing out that 5% of the people in America control 23% of the wealth is”waging class warfare,” but that the policies that purposefully concentrated the wealth are not.


    • We have always been at War with East Asia.

  4. We are ALL SLAVES.. we, united states legal citizens, PAY a tax to the Master! The founding fathers never wanted INCOME TAX.. yet we have it.. and so many others!

    There are two classes in this country.. those who live in Washington and then those who don’t. The fringes on the Washington class are Welfare recipients!

  5. birthers.. I saw an article today.. It just won’t go away! Why doesn’t Barack just show his certificate?! Get the thing over with.. hmmm. Heck.. my birth certificate is legit.. Says.. mother born in Kasoria, Greece, Father born in Kasoria, Greece.. As for me.. it says East Chicago, IN. They even have witnesses at the bottom with a notary stamp.. You’d think the Potus would just kick out the same deal. Makes one wonder why BARACK won’t kick it out..

    • Blue Say What Westies Rule – are you really, seriously, honestly so naive to think that if Obama produced whatever “birth certificate” the Birthers want, that it would end the Birther Conspiracy Theory?

      Get real.

    • LOL

    • No it would be just like Rutherford’s blog where no end of facts are enough to divert the deluded.
