Free States and Slave States, before the Civil War. It is not hard to notice the striking similarity of red and blue states in this election.
Green: Free states and territories
Red: Slave states
Brown: Territories open to slavers.

So you are implting that everyone who lives in one of those states and voted for Bush did so because they are racist? That sounds like what your are trying to put forth here.

Point..........Lincoln did not free the slaves..........in the northern states. Read what he really said. Also, my family goes back to before the beginning of Texas, no slaves. As I said in other threads today......Demoslavemasters keep the myth alive.

They weren't very many slaves here in Arkansas either, the votes had nothing to do with slavery or racism but more to do with religion and conservatism.
We in the south tend to lean toward the Conservative side and are a bit more religious
Not a whole bunch more than the North but enough to make a difference
As for slaves my people were Scotts/Irish we came over as slaves
