I thought it was very clear that Abraham wanted 3/4th income tax from the south. Or the Morill Tarrif Act? Among MANY, MANY other Tarrifs that was an
out right rip off.
"On Dec. 25, 1860, South Carolina declared unfair taxes to be a cause of secession: "The people of the Southern States are not only taxed for the
benefit of the Northern States, but after the taxes are collected, three-fourths of them are expended at the North." Mrs. Grants Memoirs.
I thought Abraham Lincoln said in his first inarguable speech: "I have no purpose, directly or in-directly, to interfere with the institution of
slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so,"
I thought south suceeded because of crooks from Wall Street and unfair taxes. That most were Irish Immigrants who was casted out because of racism to
live among Indians in harsh mountain environments.
I thought war was to "Unionize" the South because they did not have a right to suceed, when clearly you can. Look at California after getting
throttled over Hillary's defeat.
As a Southern, it's common acceptance that Wall Street, Central Banks, High Interest lending, IRS, and Federal Reserve are very bad, very destructive.
I don't think anyone I know would shed a tear here if IRS and Federal Reserved was abolished and wall street collapsed tomorrow. I bet if we woke up
and found out we should pay 3/4ths of our wages to group crooks, you'd start another civil war and the south would rise again.
The Union, however, needs that. I don't want to speak for South, but I think most of "Northern Jobs" relies on totally screwing someone over. I have
friends in North, but it's every year some big "Yankee" company is F'n over some little man somewhere... South has ALWAYS shared a different view.. we
just happened to also own slaves.
Which all the North did was create segregation, only freed a portion of slaves, caused the South to collapse and be some of poorest people in America
up until Kennedy came around. They moved slaves to the Midwest so they could cause MORE REVENUE into the Union. Abraham even offered to end war and
keep slaves.. however South continued to press the attack.
