This is fantastic thread Epiphron.
The number 1 reason for this (sans Proto), in my opinion, is the stellar research that so many dedicated people, like yourself, have put into the
Much, much, much easier to discuss complicated issues when the background is laid out in intricate detail.
Your studious efforts from earlier concerning the debt bondage of the states prior to the Civil War made presenting my ideas that much easier.
I want to say that I feel like I come across as kind of a hard ass sometimes, but that is only because I want this thread to highlight research and
our collective effort, both born from the sweat of one uber-genius, Protoplasmic Traveler.
I do not want trolls to be among us... EVER.
I have read quotes from people who talk mad smack about the regular posters in this thread, the "Rome thread", while they are on ANOTHER thread.
They accuse us of being on a team and "supporting" each other....
I am cool with being on a team, especially when my teammates are the current group of dedicated intellectuals/scholars/researchers who have for some
reason been randomly drawn to the same thread.
With that said...
You will most likely find some of the issues on the Civil War that I discussed difficult to validate.
Much of what I spoke about came from my readings of Lincoln's correspondence from his last year in office.
As I said earlier, I was born and raised in Cobb County GA, home of Kennesaw Mountain, which was the last stand before the yanks took the ATL.
The Civil War never really stopped, at least not down deep in dixie.
People make jokes about Southerners still thinking that we are at war with the Union, and funny enough, there is much truth to that statement.
As far as I am concerned, the Federal Government is NOT a part of the US.
It is a foreign corporation that is attempting the biggest leveraged buyout in the modern era.
Rome wants this country and all of its wealth, including human resources.
I spoke with my mother today and I will be staying at her house next weekend.
I will have access to the book that I was referencing and I will be able to scan and post pages from the book to validate all of my statements.
I only ask that I get the chance to post the pages from the book.
I have been sitting on this info for a while now, and I did not intend on bringing it up until I had the book for validation.
But your very fine research from earlier kind of forced my hand!!
There is still much that I have NOT discussed. I tried to stick to the nuts and bolts of the issue.
Unfortunately the actual history of the US has been completely butchered, and you will most likely have the realization after looking at what Lincoln
actually wrote versus what he is supposed to have believed, that we are not in Kansas anymore.
That was a very dark time in the history of the US, and that sentiment can be seen in this thread.
When we began discussing what actually happened in the War versus what was supposed to have happened, the thread took a dark turn, in my opinion.
And with that let's go to the next post....
I will unfortunately not have all of it ready by tonight... Sorry guys.
I want to be thorough, because the goal of the post will be to expose exactly how much of a fraud the Catholic Church truly is. (Actually, all of the
faiths of Abraham in their current mode)
I am not going to give my topic away, but you will see the post by noon tomorrow, and it should be plain as day, from the post, that the Pope and his
merry band of lackeys are all completely full of brown poo.
