...and people died for reasons including state rights .


Yeah, the right of states to enslave people.



But that is you came to ahead to settle once and for all the nullification theorem .


What?



Thank you that exactly proves my point . You have no idea what the nullification theorem is. So you only have a limited knowledge of what occurred to precipitate the Civil War .


I know what nullification is. But to repeat, I don't understand what you meant when you wrote this:

Auto correct The words "is you" should have been issue. I apologize for technology, I repeatedly see words butchered by it but I take the time to try and understand the meaning anyway instead of pointing out a error.


I took some time and couldn't understand the meaning. As a matter of fact, I still don't understand what you were trying to say even after your correction. But thanks for the apology.

Censure occurred when people as supplied by my definition took extreme disapproval upon the flag in the South Carolina house and senate .


Is there a problem with that? People voted into position took action on something they voted on... Is there something wrong with that? Is there anything wrong if all seven other flags are voted to be removed by each state's legislature?

Isn't this thread a "complaint" of sorts? Or are you stating approval of SC's decision to remove their flag?


You're making assumptions .

Nowhere did I state that I disapprove of South Carolina taking down their flag . But I will disapprove if the same reasoning is given for removal of other flags that do not have a direct link to racism .


I guess we're done talking about your original problem with the word censure? By no means admit I was right in my application of the word just move onto another subject . ( sigh)

Seriously, so 1st off you saying that nowhere in your thread you attack people by saying let them come in with there excuses, which you did.

Second i ask you how proud you where for flying the flag thats made in china, you never answered any of these.

So your circle jerk is expected, nothing got banned, for a guy that hates the pc police you sure sound offended by a non ban of the flag.

So keep up the fake outrage its nothing new.

Your reply is even harder to understand. If you knew what the nullification theorem was and how far it played back into history you would understand .

The nullification theorem is entirely about state rights. South Carolina almost led a Civil War in the 1830s. They moved for secession and raise a militia. Congress granted approval for federal forces to enforce their authority after South Carolina made claims of succession.

That whole issue was over The 1828 tariff act and taxes . It was only avoided because a ten year compromise was reached. But if you failed to do any research and only listen to the victors side of the story that information will escape you .

And by the by, it's the nullification theory not theorem.

As long as we're leveling charges about who knows what.

Nope I freely said I did that in my first reply to you. I ask you if you considered it a attack to hold someone to their word ?


Edit:

My bad I forgot I had already given you the Potato. My behavior used to be similar to yours on this site. I have made changes to improve my behavior. Constant attacks are frowned on I would just like to inform you because you do engage in meaningful debate occasionally and I would hate to see you gone .

Even Calhoun said that crisis was really about slavery.

Actually no, Georgia dropped the Southern Cross motif, used a meh flag for 2 years (seriously, you can't have that level of detail in a flag, it's ridiculous) and then Barnes was voted out and Purdue was elected in no small part over the flag controversy. Then in 2003, the new flag was adopted which is basically just the (first) Confederate National flag with the state seal plucked in the middle of the stars.

So yeah.

Also, thanks for pointing out that the controversy over Confederate symbolism isn't something that started a few weeks ago even if it wasn't your intention.

Just as I said. There were several variations submitted. The people of Georgia , including myself , voted on their "favorite. That was it. I know it doesnt break from the "confederate flag" . But it was the one the people chose

Typical Progressive response?

Nah, I'll have much more fun fighting for my daughters freedom!

I find it funny that the Progressives are getting so pissed that their tactics are backfiring that they are resorting to the same tactics of those who actually support the Constitution?

Any of us are free to leave any time we want? But I prefer to stay and fight for the Constitution against those of you who are so willing to destroy it to become a member of Global Governance!

Coming from a Canadian it should offend me why?

You use almost every troll word you could think of to demean my words, anything other than that to back up your post against an American speaking their voice about their effed up government as a Canadian? roflmao
