Seeing as how my last two threads were crap and turned into a non-stop flame fest I decided I would take a different course.
The Civil War, we have two types of history and we have to decide which is correct first. On the one side is the Civil War like we were all taught in
school and on the other side is the alternative(not meaning wrong) side of history.
It is explained in depth in this Wiki page: en.wikipedia.org...
It is explained pretty good here: www.lewrockwell.com...
So were you a Unionist, a person who supported the north and Abraham Lincoln?
Or were you a Confederate, a person who supported the south and Jefferson Davis?
This is a very touchy subject, and with the two different versions of the Civil War it's really hard to pick which side I would be on. But if you
look at the country in the eyes of its' founders we were suppose to act as a Union not an actual federal nation. States were to be treated almost
like countries and to impose on another countries will that was not permitted within the contexts of the constitution was illegal. So then it becomes
a legal question. I support an end to slavery in any form, but I'm not a fan of states' rights.
I don't think I can side with Lincoln on this one, he established a military dictatorship by stopping the Supreme Court. I just can't side with
someone who can establish a military dictatorship and kill so many innocent people on both sides for something he could have done ecoomically.
