Posted on 05/06/2009 10:35:26 AM PDT by cowboyway
One of the greatest misconceptions of American history is that the Civil War was fought over slavery. Those who subscribe to this belief see President Abraham Lincoln as the benevolent leader who made unimaginable sacrifices in human blood to wipe out Americas greatest sin. While the human sacrifice is indisputable and the sin was monumental, the wars purpose was not to free blacks from the shackles of bondage. Rather, the Civil War was fought with one purpose in mind: To preserve the Union at all costs. And, to put it in Lincolns terms, with no ifs, ands, or buts. Youd better agree with the president, or else.

Is that a self portrait in post #290, Mr. Liar?
None of them, of course, since I wouldn't have anything to do with the confederate cause and that seems to be a prerequisite.
But what do you suppose they...
...would think of your man, H.K. desecrating their precious rebel flag?
Not a chance. Stars and Bars and that Southern heritage thing are very much the cowboy way.
Along with white and blue, definitely. But red alone with that rag in the background? Not a chance.
What other interesting hobbies do you pursue in your basement?
You mean other than remind you guys of your Southern heritage? Lots. Come on, I'll bet those guys in the pictures I posted would love to join your new confederacy, central_va. Sounds like their kind of place.
Well duh! Any president running on a platform of ending the expansion of slavery would not be popular in at least 11 Southern states.
Once again you are caught telling a lie.
Not by you. Not to date.
Lets' close ranks on these Yank Federal Boot licking yahoo Bump.
Yes indeed. Get the gang together and close ranks.
As far as the flag they choose to claim, be it the American of Confederate, I wish they'd abandon both - their positions are not those of either government nor their soldiers. Personally I think those that wear the pointed hats do so because they have pointed heads.
They also claim the Cross of Christ, but I'll never abandon my Christianity nor Bible because some insane lunatics claim it as well. Many people claim positions and objects as a shield / barrier to their true beliefs.
Just as courts and politicians can wield barriers, and by twisting words distort the meanings of their words, and the words of our ancestors, even those that framed our government and demanded that our Constitution be written to prevent such distortions.
I believe the vast majority of soldiers - Union, Southern and Native American - were and are honourable men, and deserve our gratitude and praise. Whether we believe in their cause, many gave the ultimate sacrifice. Long should we remember their sacrifice.
Just as we should remember those that serve and sacrifice today, or did so in Vietnam, Korea or countless other shores. Politicians can lie and ameliorate their positions, historians can whitewash the truths, courts can mitigate their culpability, but it for the people to honour their dead and their memories.
I have no doubts that the disgust you express for the Klan is heartfelt and sincere because while we agree on virtually nothing, I believe you are a man of integrity and of honor. Unfortunately, some of your compatriots do not hold themselves to your same standard.
Why is it that the higher one gets in the Klan the gayer their robes become?
When the Yanks start calling you a Klansman you know you’ve got the high ground. Unlimber all guns. Double cannister....
End the Occupation
I'm not sure. Maybe one of the three stooges can answer that? I'll ping them.
And when you rebs start with the homosexual references you know that they've run out of myths.
The "Lincoln was gay" thing??????
Beautiful dog there.
But just as a suggestion, check to make sure you have them right-side up. It's far more effective that way.
I'm not talking about that piece of Southron idiocy and you know it.
