Then proceed to the line where your entire state gets stomped into the ground and we get all your women. Instead of the Marshall Plan you'll get the U.S. Marshall plan and become our very own Palestine.


Pretty disgusting you'd celebrate the slaughter of innocent people simply because they don't want to associate with you, but I do appreciate your honesty, no matter how disgusting it is.


LOL! I don't remember talking about slaughtering women and kids. Besides, the USA won't kill Southern women, because we're going to need them to make more Northerners. :lol3:


Glad you embrace the idea that you're forcing people to associate with your at the barrel of a gun. Ironically, your political affiliation also supports gun control.

However wrong the OP and others will think this may be, many just fly this flag to show southern pride, not to proclaim a favorable opinion of racism, ignorance, or hatred of our country.

To funny. I for one am glad that folks take pride in who they are and that their ancestors stood up to the government. It is every citizens duty to hold their government accountable. It is something we fail to do today. It is a huge part of why liberalism and it's destructive spread is occurring.

You should start a revolution tomorrow. Just go down to the local starbucks and I'm sure folks will throw their caramel macchiato with whip and a lemon slice to the floor, then stomp their pumpkin scones into the ground just to take up arms with you.

Also, standing up to your own government does not mean running away to start your own country. :lol3:

Who ran? They drew a line in the sand and gave it their all. Just like the colonies did to England. Main differences being the victors and the vanquished.

What do they teach you about American history? :huh:

No wonder you all are so confused about the Tea Party movement. You couldn't figure out if it was a reference to Alice in Wonderland or a sex act. You had apparently never heard that our country was created by Americans running away and starting our own country.

FYI, not this

Slow wouldn't understand his family was too busy being subjugated at home to understand or pay any attention to the American Revolution. At some point his family moved here because it was a better place. Now he wants to turn it into the schitt hole they originally came from. Kinda sad when you think about it.

I think that's sort of like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. It's popular amongst Southerners on here to argue that the Civil War wasn't fought over slavery, but it was........There were certainly a passle of other factors, but absent the slavery issue, I think it never happens

Absolutely correct. The South saw their economy (that was built and dependent upon slavery) threatened. Economics and religion are the usual reasons for war, and when it comes to the Civil War, slavery (the foundation of Southern economy) was THE economic driver behind everything.

It may have been a driving factor for the economy, but that's different than it being THE reason. And I'm a born and raised MN boy. I guess it's more of a stereotype than rule that only southern folks think it wasn't started over slavery.

Everybody has heard the quote where Lincoln says the South could keep their slaves if they rejoined the union. If it was about slavery for the south, they could have gotten what they wanted. If it were about slavery for the north, why would Lincoln say this?

Did the north initially go to war to end slavery? :no:

Did the south initially go to war to prevent the abolition of slavery? :no:

So how is it accurate to say it was about slavery? :huh:

It's sort of like saying the war with Germany was to end genocide. The hatred of the Jews was integral to the rise of Hitler, so ...

Only a fool would think that fighting against a government that is stripping your rights makes you a traitor. Please stay in California where you can't enjoy the freedoms that the rest of us God Fearing American citizens do.

Some may even argue that it is a founding principle of what it means to be an American. :thumbsup:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
